View Full Version : Sword Power Changing Eratically

Mysterious sword power changing bug:

I've had two complaints, both of them being on quests I made, of the sword power mysteriously changing for no reason.

Complaint 1: 5th quest, wooden sword had the power of white sword.(and then changed to normal after awhile)

Complaint 2: Triforce Knight, magic sword not as powerful as it should be.

In both quests, the quests should be set up for the swords to function properly. Its a weird bug that seems to pop up out of nowhere.

Is this something that happens frequently, or have you only heard about it once or twice? Do you know if they stay that way, or if they revert to normal at some point?
I have no idea what could cause this. Any information at all might be helpful.

I know that the one in 5th quest reverted to normal after awhile. I know also that in Triforce Knight, I did not reduce the power of the Magic Sword. Two different complaints from different sources, a similar problem. 5th quest has no scripts applied other than for the Ganon fight. I'll try to get both sources to weigh in on their experiences.


Joki from PureZC(Describing his experience beta testing Triforce Knight):
I had literally just picked up the wallet in level 6 (which had no text string), and then f6 continued. Think I then f6 saved and went back to the start.

From then on, the graphic for the sword had changed on screen. By this I mean that I was no longer swinging around a golden blade, it looked like the white sword. That said, the graphic at the top of the screen in the A button slot still showed the magic sword. Weak as shit when tackling enemies.

Hope this helps.


Lunaria from PureZC:
Alright, this was done in the built in ZC quest, the fifth quest. Accessed via name entry and special graphics save file.

From the Start of the game the wooden sword dealt white sword damage. (Including the sword beam!)
This carried over even through deaths.
This carried over even when picking up triforce pieces.
The bug was most likely not lost when leaving the save file via the saving feature. (I'm fairly certain I saved a few times early on, but this was a while ago.)

I don't know exactly where I lost the bug, so I can't really pinpoint it. But I think I was doing overworld exploration. I recall coming back to level three(?) (zol) after taking an exploration break, and being unable to kill the zols without them splitting now.

I don't know how this bug ties into the white sword, as I lost it before I could acquire it.

I don't know if it carries over even with the closure of ZC itself.
It was done on the latest public build of ZC, as of the time of this message.

it probably has something to do with how gleeok implemented quest 5th, i would take a look at that.

Absolutely no idea.

So this only happens with bigjoe's quests? You didn't abuse your quests, did you, bigjoe? Maybe this is a problem for child protective services instead. :P

Yeah bigjoe, we're going to have to fully investigate your computer for signs of child abuse and neglect. Oh and kiddie porn, so if you have any of it. Move it to drop box and uninstall it.

My quests abused me!! :weirdo:

But seriously, do enough people actually play quests in 2.5.2 to know if this only happens in my quests?

If that we're the case, it would be a header issue. "You know, title, author, version etc."
Which still makes no fucking sense.
Saffith any luck figuring this out blindly omae? Our should I do some scrounging on my part and see if I can figure what's going on here.
