You will have to follow these steps for every new ROM you use!

Step 1:

Open the ROM. You will get this error message:
 RTENOTITLE
Click ‘Ok’ and *another* error message will pop up:
 RTENOTITLE
Click ‘Ok’ once more, and then press ctrl + t
This menu will pop up:

Untick ‘Hide advanced settings’
Then click on the ‘Advanced’ menu that just showed up.

Tick ‘Remember selected cheats’ because PJ64 needs gameshark cheat codes to run properly.


Step 2:

Click ‘Config: THE LEGEND OF ZELDA’
If it’s not there, load up the ROM and look again.
RTENOTITLE

Where it says ‘Memory size’ go ahead and change that to 8mb, then click ‘apply’ and ‘OK’


Step 3:

Step 5:

Once you have completed these steps, restart Project64 and open up your ROM.


Step 6:

Click ‘Options’ and ‘Configure controller plugin’

Here is where you setup your controller binds.


For xbox controller users:
* In ‘Controller Pak’, untick ‘RawData’, and in the drop down menu, select ‘MemPak’.
* Tick ‘XInput’, and your binds menu will look like this:
The ‘XControls’ correspond to the buttons on your controller, and ‘N64’ is what they will be bound to in-game.

RTENOTITLE
For keyboard users-
* I recommend setting Analogue stick range to 100%, and in ‘Devices’, set ‘Gamepad Deadzone’ to 5%.
* These settings will make it easier to aim.


For users of any other controller-
* My only recommendation is to check out the multitude of other guides on the Internet.


If you want to use a mouse, for some reason, tick ‘N64 Mouse’.


ADDITIONAL HOTKEYS:
Toggle limit fps (fast forward): f4
Toggle pause: f2
Save State: f5
Load State: f7


Important: Delete Your PJ64 Saves

PJ64 uses the same `.sra` file for all OoT ROMS, regardless of if they're randomised or not. If you loaded a vanilla ROM before rando, you must delete `THE LEGEND OF ZELDA.sra` in `Program FIles/Project64/Save`. This is because some of the flags that rando changes are set in the SRAM, meaning that if you load a rando ROM from a vanilla flagged .sra, then some flags will break (leading to bugs such as infinite Shiek cutscene).

If you do not load a vanilla ROM before rando, you can just delete the save files in-game.

IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER ISSUES, ASK IN THE DISCORD!
