I should have known this would happen.
Haha, it was fun solving the first quest, regularly. I have no interest in doing the second quest, first quest swordless, and second quest swordless. They would be fun to watch though.
A few years ago Scott Conrad VanderWoude posted legitimate runs of doing the first and second quest swordless. They're some four hours, I think. Based upon my experience with the regular first quest, I doubt that he nailed the "perfect" path, but maybe watching his videos might help you.
TSA wants us to solve Zelda 3. I think that I may participate in that. I've played that game more than any of the other Zeldas. SNES re-recording emulators should be out soon, so why not start planning now?
I was also thinking yesterday about a chat convo a while back. In Zelda 4 (the non-DX version) there was a screen warping glitch. I think that would be amazing to watch. If I remember, you could beat that game swordless too, because of the glitch. GameBoy re-recording emulators, anyone?
These swordless quests seem very complicated to me. Granted, I haven't even spent a minute considering them. I have the idea that they are complicated, because they probably most certainly require entering levels for the item, and leaving before beating the level. Once I know the rules, and the musts (must get the wand early,) it probably won't be so complicated. Right now I'm too busy with school, and still fatigued from the effort of the last planning. A game that doesn't give you so much freedom is a little more alluring to me right now.
