Zelda Classic 2.53.0 Released

After several years of work, patching bugs and making various compatibility enhancements, we are pleased to announce the immediate release of Zelda Classic 2.53.0.

This release fixes various bugs in the 2.50.x series on modern Windows OS systems, and enhances quest compatibility with all prior versions.

ZC 2.53.0 is fully backward-and-forward-compatible with 2.50.2, and completely replaces the prior ‘2.50.3’ updates.

This version includes an Emulation menu in ZC Player that allows selectively enabling feature/bug emulation for older quests, and offers the widest support for all quests made between versions 1.80 and 2.50.2.

At this time, only the Windows release of ZC is supported. Future support for MacOS X is in doubt, given the recent announcements by Apple that they will discontinue support for all 32-bit ‘apps’ in their operating system; and a Linux version is planned, but at present in hiatus due to issues compiling ZC in a modern Linux environment (gcc/g++)..

This version supersedes v2.50.2, and v3.50.3RC1 for Windows, and all support for these versions for the WIndows platform has ended. This version of ZC is supported via a LTS programme through to April 2023 on current versions of the Windows OS.

Forum Firewall Issues

The server the forum resides on was flagging some posts that contained ZScript code snippets falsely as a cross site scripting attack, and banning the IP of the author.

We have worked with the host to resolve this, and hopefully prevent it from happening going forward, but if you or anyone you know is still experiencing issues please contact us right away so that we can help you.

Quest Database Migrated

All of the quests from the old Quest Database should now be available for download and review under the “Resources” tab. There are some true masterpieces in the database, rivaling the quality of even the official Nintendo SNES and Gameboy games, so if you are new to Zelda Classic, definitely take a look.

The migration process was not entirely straightforward, so some details might be off for some of the quests. If you notice an error, please post in the forums and we will take a look.

New Site Design

Welcome to the new site design for ZeldaClassic.com
This design brings the site up to modern web standards, and allows it to be managed and updated easily.

I will be working to migrate the old quest database information over the next week, and fine tuning a few aspects of the site.
In the mean time, feel free to submit any resource you’d like.

We will be updating more frequently with the new design, so be sure to check back often for the latest news.
