The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Bonus Disc was a pre-order bonus for The Wind Waker containing the original Ocarina of Time and as its main selling point, Master Quest.

Due to problems with people canceling their pre-orders after receiving the bonus disc, it was later bundled with The Wind Waker itself in western markets.

64DD Connections

Hmmm...
To do:
What is the link with 64DD?

There are leftovers from when the game was being developed as an expansion for the 64DD.

Zlj_F.tcg

This is the ISO file that contains both ROM files and the end credits FMV. Curiously the file name for Master Quest is called urazle_f.n64. zle_f.n64 is the normal quest's file name.

Unused Strings

Thank-You Message

thank many many people!!!!!!!!

This very grateful message is located inside the file ________________.ird.

The Legend of Zelda: X

In "zeldaGraph.arc" is a file called "r16_titl_r.bti" which has a logo that could be the game's pre-release name as The Legend of Zelda X.

The following textures are also in "zeldaGraph.arc":

The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time X

Same as the first set of Japanese characters above, except italicized and with shadows.

Unused Menu Background

Unused Menu Background

Inside bg8.tpl is an unused menu background featuring a GameCube, similar to many menu backgrounds for the Interactive Multi-Game Demo Discs. This background often goes unused on those discs as well, which, like Master Quest, are multi-boot ISOs.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Show these movies.

The selection of trailers present differs by region. The Japanese version has the most trailers and promoted the ill-fated Capcom Five. The selection was overhauled for international releases.
