Official 20th Anniversary Contest Ratings

The final quest submissions, and the form to rate them are now available to the public.

You can download a ZIP of the entire set of quests here (https://www.zeldaclassic.com/download/2397/). This comes with information on how to rate the quests, and other miscellaneous information that you may need to review in order to properly submit your ranking data,.

Be sure to use
the latest version of ZC 2.53.1 (https://www.zeldaclassic.com/download/2083/), when playing the quests!
This is mandatory to ensure compatibility. The version at the time of this post is 2.53.1, Beta 36.

The form for the contest ranking submissions is hosted on openzc.org (https://www.openzc.org/6th.html), through jot. If for some reason you cannot use this form, please post here and notify the contest staff.

All rating submissions are subject to validation and review by contest staff. Spoofed, invalid, or deliberately malicious submissions will be discarded with no effect on the quest ranking.

If you were unable to finish a quest, and you do not provide a satisfactory reason, then we will discard your submission: The field for the reasons for which you are unable to finish a quest is not optional.

Please post below if you intend to submit any rankings, so that we know how many people are still playing quests, and can estimate how many submissions to anticipate. Please also indicate if you intend to play some, or all of the quests. We will allow at least two or three months to receive submissions, and may extend this further, should people still be testing and require more time.

While it is not required to review each quest, we ask that if you are able--even if you cannot complete them due to difficulty or other issues during gameplay--that you try to rank each quest so that we receive adequate sample data on every entry to properly qualify them all and to tier them appropriately.

Please keep us updated on your progress, and enjoy!

Minor Announcement

I changed the form so that rankings from '0 to n' now start with the largest value (descending order), rather than with '0' (ascending order). This is meant to make it easier to choose larger values, as people are more likely to choose 80/100 than 2/100.

There is no need to resubmit anything. This only affects new submissions from this point, onward.

The entry for Glenn's quest is in a pending disqualified status on the following grounds:

The quest cannot be completed. Level 9 (left side) uses DMap 9, but Level 9 (right side) uses DMap 10. The quest relies on killing bosses on the left side, and having them remain dead when you explore the right side, but because these areas do not share a DMap, the boss flag does not persist and it is impossible to complete the level.

There are also several softlocks, but the hard lock (unwinnable game) removes it from this contest.

Further tests will confirm this issue.

Cancel. Cancel. Cancel.

This has been validated as winnable and is not disqualified.
