Exclamation Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

No, I did not make a typo. I'm doing a 3 heart challenge in hero mode, the ultimate challenge...Well sort of.
How is this possible? Cheat codes!
I'm using the following codes in this run.

1. Disable treasure and bug popups(so I can get treasure without those cutscenes)
2. Disable Fi for low health(this would get extra annoyi ng), shield, etc
3. Hero mode. Why do you have to copy files or beat your current file to get a clean file?
4. Bird warping. Speeds up flying.
5. Instant text.


-----------------------------------------
***My Rules***
-No shield...I barely used it last time anyways
-3 hearts, obviously.
-No faeries(subject to change)
-No pointless upgrades, like arrows for example
-Do not use the bow unless required
-----------------------------------------
beginning - Zero problems
1st dungeon - Super easy except for those little mistakes
after 1st dungeon - Nothing hard here. However getting through that hot area always took away 1 heart.
2nd dungeon - Lizards were annoying at first, especially fighting both at once. However, I figured out their pattern quickly. Rest was pretty easy.
after 2nd dungeon - No problems at all.
3rd dungeon - Biggest problem was those enemies that shoot missiles. No shield...so I had to avoid them. Either way, the dungeon was quite easy.
after 4th dungeon - Zero problems.
4th dungeon - Last time on Hero mode, I had 6 hearts because I didn't feel like healing and died on the mini-boss lots of time. This time around, I got hit early but managed to beat him with no problem. The end boss was simple as well.

What does bird warping look like?

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

Your X/Y gets changed to Green, Red, Yellow light(if they're activated), also one warp for Skyloft.
Z + dleft, Z + dup, z + dright, and z + c

Except for those little mistakes I made it to the first temple. (took only 1 hour)

I'm going to try to not use any bottles for healing.
SS is about trial and error, so let's see how many errors I have to make before I change my rules.
How do you find these cheat codes and get them to work? I would find the game more enjoyable if I could do all five of these things.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

That sounds like a challenge. I was thinking of doing a Hero Mode run in which I'll collect no hearts.
I haven't tried the three heart code as of yet. It might be worth a try. Does Link have just three hearts, or are there six hearts and three of them are empty?

That's what I was wondering.

You could still do a three heart challenge with six heart containers, you just make sure three are always empty. If you unintentionally pick up a heart and you have more than three full containers, you must immediately take damage before fighting so your health is three full hearts or less. It's difficult to do this without a cheat code because you constantly have to watch your health so that it never goes above three.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

You only have 3 heart containers.
I assume now that I saved it should always have 3 hearts, but either way I'm leaving the code on.

Search youtube for installing the homebrew channel (without a game). If you find a game one, then it's old.
Then you need to install "Gecko". Last you need to get "code manager"(download to computer) or some other cheat enabling program for the Wii(I think one exists).
Then we'll talk codes.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

Just because I find a game boring and complain about it, doesn't mean I won't ever play it again.
I couldn't complete the 100% though, was getting way too bored.

A 3 heart challenge is about getting through the game quickly(unless if your doing a 3 heart 100% challenge). If for some reason I get good(doubt it),I'd enter the boss challenge with only 3 hearts.

It's time to find out if this game is easier or harder then OOT once and for all.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

SS is more difficult than OoT. And you're doing it on Hero mode.

Now you say that you complain about the game. And that you didn't reach 100% on your first playthrough. There are still things you should get familiar with. When I used to do 3 heart runs, I would do it after a 100% completion playthrough and two speedruns.

I'm just saying it would help if you got familiar with the entire game more by having given it a bit more time. But good luck nonetheless.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

If you want even more of a challenge never equip a shield or use the groosenator- good luck!

Heh, he shouldn't even think about using the lightning on Demise. One blow from him, and you're dead.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

I know this game inside and out.
I did a 90% play through for normal mode. I watched my brother play it. I watched Video Game Awesome beat it.
I know this game more then you think.
The only thing I haven't had a ton of practice are half of the boss battles.
Either way, a lot of it is trial and error.


**Just beat the first dungeon with little problem**

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

Ahh, I knew homebrew would be involved somehow in this.

Actually... being able to play SS with some of these codes might really improve the experience a bit. The Hero Mode 3 heart challenge for me would be impossible though. When you think about it there are a number of enemies that can kill you in one hit.

I suppose that's "realistic".

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

Well, that's a really nice challenge. Do you plan on publishing screenshots or videos or anything else? I tried to do something similar in Twilight Princess. Don't remember how far I went, but let's just say that Darknuts are REALLY annoying when you don't have a shield.

Anyway, I know you've gotten far already, but good luck!

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

I'll probably record some boss videos soon, just to show off my skill.

Re: Doing a 3 heart hero mode challenge

I just met my first huge challenge. The captin pirate. I always managed to take this guy down without much problem. Since I only have 3 hearts, he became a challenge.
I died about 10 times now. I managed to get to round 3 once and was able to dodge until I found myself against the spikes and died.

Have you tried just doing all stab thrusts?
You can't get electrocuted if you only use stabs. I'm not 100% sure on that though.
But, I've never been electrocuted by both Dreadfuse and Scervo before because all I do is stab them.

For his counter-attacks, do a backflip for those moments that you would normally do a shield bash, if you're not already doing that.
