    Quest rules
    The following rules may be turned on or off at the quest designers discretion:
    "Fast Dungeon Scrolling", "Smooth Vertical Scrolling", "FFC Are Visible While Screen Is Scrolling", "Use Warp Return Points Only", "Invincible Link flickers", "Warps Ignore Arrival X/Y Position When Setting Continue Screen", "Can't push blocks into unwalkable combos", "Push blocks don't move when blocked", "Damage Combos Work On Layers", "Combo cycling on layers", "Scrolling warps don't set the continue point", "Rings affect damage combos", "Multi-directional traps", "Fast Heart refill".

    The following rules must be ENABLED: "Items Disappear during hold-up".
    All other quest rules must be DISABLED.


    Spending rupees that are already spent, then, must be left the way it is. You could always make other intricacies in a submission that make it so this fact is completely irrelevant though, anyway.

    Just that it has to be accessible only after the other 8 triforce pieces are collected, other than that, it must be placed in a place that the player can/could find it somehow without having to use cheats, scripting, or other hacks.

    I am going to go ahead and say this one is up to the quest maker. This rule wasn't present when 3rd or 4th were made and using draining rupees was never determined to be possible in Z1 so it can't very well be considered "un-NES." I don't think it being on or off matters much in the end.

    It is possible in Z1. If you buy arrows and walk over the bombs, you can grab the bombs, too.

    The Titan's Quest, best played in the bathroom as the excitement can be somewhat...overwhelming.

    Link holds up the item and the others disappear but you are somehow able to grab the bombs?

    I would concur, and this was my initial thoughts, (similar, anyway), on this topic also, I just didn't want to step on my senior staff member's toes, taze him while he's stunned, and then throw him into a vortex of usurption.

    Yeah.. This is going off topic alert... But anyway, you just leave the room and come back really quick.

    That trick works great when you buy the blue ring!

    (Maybe if you want it too do that?)

    This isn't off topic as it relates to a rule of 5th quest and even if it werent that isn't good reason to delete posts.

    I've heard many people claim it is possible but no proof. I don't for a second believe with the rate rupees drain that you can purchase something, wait as link holds the item, leave and re-enter, wait while the string is displayed, and still have time to grab another item. Maybe with the purchase of the blue ring but then you have an armos to contend with.

    I don't remember exactly what room it was since this was over a decade ago, but I did successfully take advantage of this "bug." It does work..
    I don't see how this has anything to do with the 5th quest topic because Gleeok already stated, clearly, in plain English, which rules are acceptable, which rules are changable, and which rules are to be disabled.
    Mainly because other people who would like to know about 5th quest submission rules aren't going to need to hear about whether or not some kid ran in and out of a room.. In fact, I would personally leave it the way it was, and not tell anyone, and if/when some child in the future gets a chance to play a quest of ours, it'll be up to them to use their wits and try it out if they notice that the rupee counter doesn't instantly deduct, and try it themselves, without us indicating over and over again that it's possible or not.

    Oops, I meant the bombs, and then the arrows. Hunger is messing with my head.
