So , i you want to use my textures pack , you must first have the last Glide64 Plugin : You can find it here : http://glide64.emuxhaven.net/

Using the pack with Master Quest
Thanks for writing this up Djipi!
I have a present for people wanting to use this pack with Master Quest!
0 - Make sure that you have everything that Djipi said in place and the regular Ocarina of Time is working!
1 - Find this: "The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time - Master Quest.v64". (Use Google, duh!)
(The Debug version kinda works too, but it doesn't feel as smooth to me. Make sure you use File 2 or 3 if you want to start a new game!)
2 - Download the utility "N64 ROM Renamer", from Romhacking.net (Again, Google it!). Open the Renamer, click tools, headereditor, click the little folder icon at the top, find your new Master Quest Rom file, and change the Internal Romname to "THE LEGEND OF ZELDA".
3 - Start it in Project64 just like you would any other game! It says "Bad Rom? Use GoodN64 ...." on the Rom list screen, but it works fine!
I hope you enjoy guys! I know I've been playing the original Ocarina of Time since it came out, so Master Quest mixes things up a bit, and this way we can still use Djipi's wonderful texture pack!
PS: For me, opening the start menu is kind of slow, so you might have that problem as well. Also, if you care about your Ocarina of Time save, you may want to back it up in case it gets overwritten, since Project64 now thinks THIS ROM is Ocarina of Time. That's why this works, actually. It's kind of a weird workaround, but I believe it's the only way to do it due to the .DAT files.
