This is a community effort to randomize various aspects of the SNES classic "Secret of Evermore" to have a new experience or challenge or something to race friends with.
You will need to supply your own vanilla ROM and the means to run it, because this just modifies your copy of the original game. Check out the Readme below for more details.
Read Philosophy below for various design choices.
- Open-world Evermore to allow / require more complex routing
- Keep as much in / stay as close to vanilla as possible
- Patch the ROM so that randomization only replaces numbers where possible
- Randomize as much as possible
- Produce a Wasm blob that runs in your browser
- Your ROM will not leave your PC
- The patcher contains no ROM
Check out the in-browser version here or download the ZIP below and run the EXE (on Windows) or compile the Source (on Linux). Please note that AVs may give false positives and the releases are not signed. When in doubt run the in-browser version.
There is also a multiworld version available through Archipelago.
v042: Optionally convert Energy Core location to a gourd and shuffle Core Optionally add Energy Core Fragments Include Footknight in boss drops Rename some items Mark Storage room chest #284 as far Features for multiworld: traps, deathlink, support for "useful" flag
HOWTO: 0. ROM has to be NTSC/US and can be a 3MB .SFC file with or without 512B header 1. Visit the in-browser version, unpack the exe or compile main.c 2. Drag and drop your rom into the in-browser field or onto the .exe 3a In-browser version should present you checkboxes in your browser and offer the patched ROM as "download" or show messages in an alert box. 3b Exe should ask you for settings and spit out success or error in a "dos" window, create a file starting with "Evermizer" in source ROM's directory and print out the complete filename. 4. Checksum is wrong, but neither FXPAK nor tested emulators seem to care 5. You can skip the intro by pressing start (even without a prior save) 6. You have to loot gourds/chests, check alchemists or kill Thraxx to get a weapon that can cut grass to get access to the Windwalker. 7. If you have questions or need help, continue reading below, check the guide at https://github.com/black-sliver/evermizer/blob/master/guide.md or join the discord. CHANGES SO FAR: This is still far from complete. Crude user interface to select seed and settings Default output filename includes settings and seed number Option to save a spoiler log Command line interface: Allow batch processing Allow to specify complete output filename with -o Allow to specify output directory with -d Run the program without any file/arguments to see possible arguments Run the program in UI mode or with --settings to see possible settings Energy Core: Vanilla places it in its original location under the chessboard Shuffle converts the vanilla Energy Core to be a chest Fragment converts it to a chest and places multiple fragments into random chests. Use pool (see below) to shuffle them to other places. Trade for the real Energy Core at Prof. Ruffleberg. Ingredienizer: Randomize ingredient requirements Scales with difficulty Goes crazy with "Full" Alchemizer: "On" randomizes where you get which alchemy and Make sure Atlas is obtainable and usable in Easy and Normal Make sure Levitate and Revealer is obtainable and usable when required Newly learned alchemy is now preselected/highlighted for alchemy selection Strong Heart only teaches one formula, the other one is in the market "Pool" shuffles spells with other enabled pools (Dialogs still unchanged) Boss dropamizer: "On" randomizes what each boss drops and Horace will not steal your DEs Thraxx will always drop a weapon for now Bridges in pyramid won't collapse Horace spawn and dialog is changed (tied to DEs in inventory or DEs lost) Tinker taking away your diamond eyes sets flag to not lock-out Aegis If gourdomizer is on as well, you can go back through Big Bug after Thraxx "Pool" shuffles boss drops with other enabled pools Gourdomizer: "On" shuffles gourd/pot/chest drops, no gourds are missable and "Pool" shuffles gourd drops with other enabled pools Mixed Pool Strategy: when pooling is enabled "Balance" keeps the amount of key items in each pool constant "Random" may redistribute key items randomly "Bosses" will move all key items to bosses Sniffamizer: "On" shuffles, "Full" randomizes dog-sniff ingredients Callbeadmizer: "On" swaps call bead rings, "Full" shuffles individual spells Doggomizer: "On" swaps, "Full" randomizes the dog in your party Act1-3 only because toaster evasion sound hardlocks for some music tracks Pupdunk: Act0 doggo everywhere! Musicmizer: randomize music, in testing stage Fix sequence: Desolarify: Act1 first rock skip is disabled (Levitation required) Desaturnate: require the use of teleporter before final boss hatch is open Disable double gauge: don't take away rocket parts until you have them all Fix cheats: Remove infinite call bead glitch Glitchless beatable: Never require glitches to beat the game, even if glitches are not disabled All accessible: Make sure all checks/areas/bosses can be reached Fix infinite ammo: Fixes the bug that Particle Bomb and Cryo-Blast do not drain Fix atlas glitch: Fixes stat underflow when dying with active stat boosts Fix wings glitch: Fixes wings granting invincibility if they "did not work" Money%: 1 to 2500, Enemies give that % of money Exp%: 1 to 2500, Enemies, weapons and formulas give that % experience points Shorter dialogs: Cut some dialogs and cutscenes. This is work in progress. Short boss rush: Start boss rush at Metal Magmar. Cut enemy HP in half. Turdo Mode: Replaces all offensive spells, weakens weapons, reduces enemies' Magic Def. Open world: Unlock windwalker in every fire pit (slashing weapon required) Grant access to inner volcano Grant access to east swamp Fix palace cutscenes Lock Barrier (Horace inside palace) + gates behind Aegis (instead of WW) Make both Act3 towns filled with people Moved ticket lady bazooka shells behind dog race (in both towns) Fixed lance not appearing. He now appears in ivory as well as ebon keep Still not 100%, look into this again, weird camera glitch in Act3 houses Locked east draw bridge behind Mungola Disabled exit from Naris to chessboard if Mungola is alive Fixed reverse Timberdrake Disabled exit from castle to Verminator if Verminator is not dead Fixed prison sound crash Killing Verminator is optional, prison door unlocks when prison is cleared Keep dog after Magmar (room change required to make him visible) Play Tinker WW cutscene once, regardless of progress Landing skip converted to a regular landing Act2 dog statue and dialogues moved behind aegis Vigor fight won't start if you did not jump down the cliff at blimp Act1 Fire Eyes cutscenes play in order (dog naming skip as in vanilla) Act1 top-of-volcano guy fixed Act3 Mungola HP / fight fixed Act1 move Coleoptera behind talking to FE after killing Thraxx Aquagoth is accessible once. Oglin cave gourd can't be randomized Madrinus will (still) spawn after Aegis is defeated Move call bead glitch behind rocket Don't despawn North Market rock when Aegis is dead Replaced FE Village Windwalker checks with Magmar-dead checks Progress Act3 NPCs based on Castle crumbled instead of WW (ongoing effort) Vanilla bugs fixed: Fix softlock when entering west prison with dead dog Fix softlock when opening mosquito cell last (exit will be bottom left cell) Fix softlock when you have more than 3 rocket parts Fix texts disappearing when you fall down in Ruins NW room Removed option to save at Madronius' Brother Fix softlock when leaving tiny's lair Saving with Atlas, Defend or Speed does not ruin your stats Fix missables: Directly reward Queen's Key to inventory Make Revealer and Escape still obtainable when Horace is gone All rooms with gourds/chests/pots can be re-entered with gourdomizer on Some quality of life improvements are always enabled, most notably: Preselect the correct spell in alchemy selection screen Bazooka charge/energize and stat display fix Multiple level-ups from one enemy Uses tinymt64 for platform-independend RNG. See tinymt64.h for lincense Allow for ROM to grow to 4MB if required Allow skipping of intro with no prior save file STILL TO BE FIXED: Show info to the player if market timer is over but Vigor won't spawn yet you have to jump down the ravine next to Blimp's cave Act3 can have camera location bugs in houses until blindly talked to Lance saving and loading is a work-around A lot of vanilla crashes/softlocks See discord and github for ideas and feature requests LINUX AND MAC BUILD INSTRUCTIONS: run make WINDOWS BUILD INSTRUCTIONS: Run make for mingw, or create a VS project with main.c as (only) source file.
