Accessible Ruleset

From OoT Randomizer Wiki

This is an archival article! Information here has been left as-is for reference purposes, but should be considered inaccurate, out-of-date, or just no longer relevant.

Reason: As of 2019-11-03, this ruleset is no longer officially supported by the OoTR Community. Standard supersedes it as the most common ruleset for races, and other rulesets are also available.

Formerly, the Accessible ruleset was the most popular ruleset for Ocarina of Time Randomizer. It was a mostly glitchless ruleset that allowed people to participate in races without excessive Ocarina of Time glitch knowledge.

Timing ends upon completion of the last objective in any given category - if defeating Ganon, timing ends on the first frame of the final blow cutscene.
