Welcome to the Ship of Harkinian!

A PC port of OoT allowing you to enjoy the game with modern controls, enhanced resolution, and a bunch of new features! Setup is simple, let's get started!


The Ship of Harkinian cannot be played by itself. It needs assets from an OoT ROM to run. We have a special tool that extracts these assets for you. To use it, you will need a few things.

Here's what's needed to run the Ship of Harkinian:

The Ship of Harkinian uses a proprietary versioning system consisting of a sci-fi film name and a color. The motion-picture name represents a Major release version which increments with the addition of many new features and bug fixes. The color represents a Minor release version which increments with small updates mainly comprised of bug fixes.

Extracting the Ship of Harkinian

The Ship of Harkinian is packed in a .zip file. It is paramount that you extract that .zip file. We recommend extracting its contents somewhere safe, like in a folder on your Desktop.

Once that is done, we are going to run the OTRGUI tool, which will allow us to extract the needed assets from an OoT ROM. Doing this will allow us to play the Ship of Harkinian.

Using the extraction tool

Launch OTRGui.exe by double-clicking it. Once the OTRGUI tool has launched, you will be met with a classy, yet easy-to-use interface. There will be 2 buttons:

  • Open OoT Rom
  • Open Ship Folder

Start by clicking on Open OoT Rom. After doing that, a window should open, asking you to open an OoT ROM. Simply navigate through your folders and find your ZRET OoT Debug ROM that you have obtained legitimately. Simply double-click on the file, and the prompt should close.

After that, click on Open Ship Folder. Another window will open, but this time, it will ask you to select a folder. Simply select the folder that you extracted from the Ship of Harkinian .zip file.

After that, a command-line window should open. Don't worry, this is perfectly normal. The tool will proceed to extract the assets from the ROM and compile them into a format the Ship of Harkinian can understand.

The whole process can take up to 5 minutes. Depending on your PC specs, this process may be shorter.

After that, a Done! message should show up. At that point, simply press on the X of the OTRGUI tool at the top-right. If you get another message, then you might have selected a wrong ROM. Simply retry again with another ROM.

If you still cannot get the tool to work, join our Discord Server and ask for help in the #support text channel. Keep in mind that we do not condome piracy in any way.

Running the Ship of Harkinian

Simply double-click on soh.exe to launch the game. If the window immediately closes, or if there are visual artifacts, you might have selected a wrong ROM in the OTRGUI tool. Simply retry again with another ROM.

Congratulations, you are now sailing with the Ship of Harkinian! Have fun!

Building the Ship of Harkinian

  1. Install Python
  2. Install Visual Studio 2022 Community Edition 2b. In the Visual Studio Installer, install MSVC v142 - VS 2019 C++.
  3. Clone the Ship of Harkinian repository.
  4. Put your 2020 OoT Debug ROM in the soh folder.
  5. Launch soh/fixbaserom.py.
  6. Launch soh/extract_baserom.py.
  7. Copy the baserom folder from the soh folder into the OTRExporter folder.
  8. Run OTRExporter/OTRExporter.sln.
  9. Switch the solution to Release x64.
  10. Build the solution.
  11. Launching OTRExporter/extract_assets.py will generate an oot.otr archive file in OTRExporter/oot.otr.
  12. Run soh/soh.sln
  13. Switch the solution to Release x86.
  14. Build the solution.
  15. Copy the OTRExporter/oot.otr archive file to soh/Release.
  16. Launch soh.exe.

Troubleshooting the exporter

  • Affirm that you have an /assets folder filled with XMLs in the same directory as otrgui.exe
  • Affirm that zapd.exe exists in the /assets/extractor folder
