Dark Hyrule Fantasy


DHF is an Ocarina of Time mod with the goal of telling a new story, set in our vision of what we want a Zelda world to look like. A new threat emerges in this world, plaguing the survival of all that lives. As this threat emerges, a light will shine bright in darkness.

Created by E-Gor and Spire, this tale sets out to be a dark and rich take on the world of Hyrule.

This mod is still in development, so stay tuned for updates!

    Is there a discord to follow the updates and stuff like that?

    • E-gor April 6, 2020 — Post Author

      Currently it isn’t public, and there is yet to be a channel in the Hylian Modding Discord. Stay tuned.

    What kind of length will this mod have? Will it be as long as Ocarina or is it a mini-hack?

    • E-gor May 1, 2020 — Post Author

      I won’t share whether it is longer or shorter than OoT but it is not a mini-hack.

    I just downloaded the demo and holy shit is it amazing. This mod had caught my eye on design alone (found it before the first demo was playable) and I couldn’t wait to actually play it. It’s fantastic, I’ve beaten the first dungeon. Everything looks clean and plays well. Can’t wait for more!

  11. pasthero June 15, 2020

    Really nice rom hack! I have two questions though, was the dungeon the end or was there more to do after that and I got 9 of the gold skulltulas (the one behind the web was really tricky) was that all of them? I really enjoyed this and would love to see more, thanks for making this!

  12. RobVal90 June 20, 2020

    I’m having trouble getting this demo up and running. Help anyone?

  13. Maxlydee June 22, 2020

    I’m also having trouble getting it up and running, The presentation looks amazing and I really want to play it!

  14. Fenloki June 25, 2020

    I’m having trouble too. Can’t patch with the rom I have, can someone help?

  15. Newbornkilik June 25, 2020

    This mod was an incredible ride! Just to double-check does the mod end when you make it to the top of the second area? After exiting the second area to stock up on supplies and coming back all of the rocks were gone, restarting did not help. Was there meant to be something at the top of the second area? 🙂 Everyone on the channel absolutely fell in love with it by the way!

    Keep up the awesome work!

  16. F-Lambda June 26, 2020

    You say that we should use ZELOOTMA to patch, but can you confirm what the correct file hash for the base file should be?

    • F-Lambda June 26, 2020

      I found what it is, the correct base file has a CRC32 hash of 62F92704. It should also be in big endian format (z64), so people may need to use Tool 64 to fix it if it’s byteswapped (v64).

  17. zamasm99 June 29, 2020

    Could anybody here tell me where to find this zelootma.z64 rom so I as a law-abiding citizen can stay far away?

  18. Hyliantrooper July 10, 2020

    Wow! This is so cool! I have the demo and can’t wait for the full game!

  19. prestonrocks150 July 12, 2020

    quick question do you have an estimate of when this game will be out? I am just super excited to try this out, It looks absolutely amazing, but do take your time.

  20. herbertj July 20, 2020

    I had fun with this mod. The boss is quiet challenging. Like it !

  21. drakotar January 25, 2021

    That is the best hack rom that i’ve seen I really hope it’ll not die and stay a demo forever I really want the full game it’s really a beautiful and fun game and all fresh and really well put together.

    Good work guys

  22. drakotar February 21, 2021

    I was wondering if it’s possible to get like just the texture pack to play it on a randomizer or just a normal playthrough or even to put on top of master of time I really like the different tunic swords and shields and the demo didn’t let us use all of them 🙂

  23. Sapphire March 14, 2021

    I can’t seem to patch it, I’ve tried the version that is required but it won’t patch

  24. mikejoseph327 May 7, 2021

    You need to tweak the character model of Link. his shoulders have a strange tiny feeling, the chest looks very strange with the polygons as they are and the under shirt color looks too close to his skin color. Also he looks a little hunch backed. I and several others talked about this a few days ago how it’s hard to play a game when you don’t like the character model. And while yours is not bad by any stretch whatsoever, it definitely has a ton of room to be tweaked and improved. Just a thought from a bunch of old skool gamers here in Michigan. ALSO…your color choices are absolutely friggin amazing! Hoping to see some rain and lightning in the game. would be cool to see a purple stormy sky with neon red or orange lightning! Keep up the amazing work. Also please feel free to update us fans with current details if there are some.
