ZOoT Storyteller is a tool for editing dialogue box texts in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64. The purpose of this project was mostly recreational and educational.
In order to use it, you need a decompressed Ocarina of Time ROM, a hex editor and a little bit of know-how. The basic idea is:
- Locate and extract the english message table and message data from your ROM using a hex editor
- Edit the messages using ZOoT Storyteller
- Replace the existing message table and data in your ROM using a hex editor
If you need a way to decompress a compressed Ocarina of Time ROM, take a look at my ZOoT Decompressor. In the decompressed US 1.2 ROM, the english message table is located at
0x00B84A5C-0x00B88C7B and the english message data at
0x0092D000-0x9650D7. If you need some assistance, don’t hesitate to ask me a question at .
