Universal secrets

From ZeldaHacking Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Due to a flaw in the way the Oracle games process secrets, there is a particular set of secrets that work on all files.


Upon completing either Ages or Seasons for the first time, a 2-byte "game ID" is assigned to the file. This game ID is encoded into all secrets going forward, and files created with such secrets will share the same game ID. This system was put in place to prevent one player's secrets from working for another player.

However, when a secret is encoded with game ID 0, the resulting secret works on all files, regardless of that file's game ID. It is normally impossible to generate such a secret since a value of "0" indicates that the game ID is unassigned, and the game will attempt to create a valid ID before proceeding. However, using a secret generator to create a secret with ID 0 results in a universally valid secret.

Ring secret


This secret provides all rings and works on any file in Ages or Seasons, except for uncompleted games on the first playthrough.

Version differences with secrets

Although the European versions have exactly the same secret algorithm as the US versions, they have additional checks to prevent corrupted secrets from being entered:

  • The animal companion variable is checked to be a valid value.
  • The player's and child's names are checked to make sure that there are no invalid characters (although the name can still be blank).
