  39. =============NOTES (IMPORTANT READ):===================
  40. - Kaze's first person VR mod: It isn't perfect. The mod activates the built in anti-piracy features in OoT. Thankfully, I was able to bypass the game-breaking ones with AR codes. Unfortunately, Adult Zelda's hair is still wild during cutscenes. Movement jittering is to be expected. Backflipping and sidehopping are not possible. The hookshot target will fill the screen with red when aiming - I fix this issue by making a transparent hookshot target in the modified texture pack. Lifting any of the 3 Golden Gauntlet Stones may softlock the game - always save beforehand. The one in the Fire Trial is guaranteed to softlock - never lift it.
  41.  
  42. - UHD Texture Pack: A .PNG version is required for this older Dolphin version. I had to modify many textures so they wouldn't crash Dolphin. Sky textures and a few other textures were redone because the .PNG pack contained invalid names (as a result of their .DDS counterparts). Night-time dark cloud sky textures are vanilla because I prefer them this way. Not every texture has a UHD version, but most do.
  43.  
  44. - AR Codes: I adapted and handmade some game enhancing AR codes for this mod, some of which are explained in more detail below.
  45. - 30 FPS Hack: This sets the default frame rate to 30 FPS and has logic to revert back to 20 FPS under various situations. Pressing D-pad DOWN will manually set the game to 20 FPS and D-pad UP will manually set the game back to 30 FPS. This hack is not perfect. It was originally created by Admentus and I have since improved it to prevent softlocks and to allow the entire game to be beaten without needing to manually change the FPS. However, there are still a handful of unexpected results that can occur that may require the player to manually change back to 20 FPS. Most notably is talking to business scrubs.
  46. - Cull Hack AR Code: This code works as expected 99% of the time. There is one known situation where the screen freezes in Hyrule Field when walking near some signs. Moving away from the signs will resume gameplay back to normal.
  47. - 3 Silver Rupees to Complete Fire Trial AR Code: This code is needed because the mod will softlock after lifting the Golden Gauntlet Stone. Instead, you only need to collect the 3 possible silver rupees to open the door in the Fire Trial.
  48. - Tower Collapse Bars Passable AR Code: The anti-piracy features prevents the bars from raising. Zelda will walk through them. This code allows Link to do the same.
  49. - Equip Boots with D-pad Buttons AR Code: D-pad UP: Kokiri Boots. D-pad LEFT: Iron Boots. D-pad RIGHT: Hover Boots. Boots will only be changed if Link is an adult and owns the respective boots. This code was originally made by Admentus. This hack is not perfect. It will not update Link's speed when changing boots. Pausing or changing maps will fix this. Changing maps may change Link's boots unexpectedly if the code was used in the previous map.

  59. - Left Hand Button Mapping: Trigger = L; Joystick = C-Stick; Joystick Press = D-pad LEFT; B (hold Grips) = X; A = B; Trackpad Down = D-Pad DOWN; Trackpad Up = D-pad UP
  60. - Right Hand Button Mapping: Trigger = R; Joystick = Joystick; Joystick Press = A; B (hold Grips) = Y; B (let go of grips) = Start; A = A; Trackpad Down (hold Grips) = D-Pad Right; Trackpad Down (let go of grips) = D-Pad Left.
  61.  
  62. Gray Screen issue: This problem only occurs during the Ganondorf and Ganon fights for me. I figured out this is a problem with the Valve Index headset software. To solve this issue, change your computer's PCIe to Gen 3.0 in your computer's BIOS:
