Backflip, and do the sideroll immediately after backflipping. It should kill your momentum so that you don't go forward along the door.

Congratulations on finding the easiest way to get to the Golden Gauntlets.

Hey, I'm pretty new here, just directed here by Runnerguy and Unreal, so could someone help me out? I need some guidelines as to where to start, as in getting used to the glitches. I've managed to get the Forest Escape where you clip through the guard, and I've also pulled off a few Super Slides with the PeaHat outside of the Forest. But, I still have a really hard time with the Cucco Bridge Jump to get into GV, could someone help me like exercises and practices to get used to it? Also, what does RBA stand for? :3

It's just practice.

RBA stands for Rare Bird Adventure. We call it that because we need to get the blue cucco in order to use it.
You can read more about it here:

http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?link=oot/ba/stealing_rod_bottle_B
http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?link=oot/ba/rba

Edit:

Okay, that RBA link may still leave you a bit confused. Below is a detailed explanation, that quite possibly leaves you even more confused.

The game keeps track of various things in "memory addresses" which are just numbers that refer to locations in the game's memory. Due to the history of computing, memory addresses are almost always represented in the hexadecimal number system. That means that memory numbers also contain the letters A through F, which can make calculating with them a little weird if you're not used to them. Our number system has 10 digits (0-9) and hexadecimal numbers have 16 digits (0-F).

On the bottom link above, there is a long list of memory addresses. The list starts with 8011A644 which is the memory address that controls the deku stick item slot. As you can see, the list counts up normally until Din's Fire, 8011A649, but then doesn't go to 8011A650 but to 8011A64A. It doesn't reach 8011A650 until 6 addresses later.

What does it mean that 8011A644 controls the deku stick item slot? The deku stick item slot is the slot in your inventory that shows the deku stick picture (where you can select them to put them on C buttons). You can think of a memory address like a safe. The game has this safe, tagged 8011A644, which is empty if you don't have deku sticks, and stores a deku stick if you do.

When you put the inventory menu on the screen, the game checks all those memory addresses and puts a picture of the item that's in there. So if the game would have a bottled bug in the memory address for a deku stick, then when you'd pull out the inventory menu, you'd see a bottled bug where you would normally see deku sticks.

The really cool part about all this is that you can use RBA to do what I just described. You have to try it out before it *really* makes sense. Put a Bottle on B with the instructions in the first link above, put a deku stick on c-right, and catch a bug with the bottle. Then check your inventory. This was a big whoa for us when we first saw it. What just happened? We can overwrite memory addresses! Using this trick we were able to put a bottled bug in the safe that normally stores the deku stick. When the game is showing the inventory, and it goes past all the safes storing inventory menu items, it checks 8011A644. What does it see there? A bottled bug. Then it shows a bottled bug on the screen. It even works like a bottled bug if you select it.

Now, what if we use this trick to overwrite the memory address containing medallions which is tagged 8011A677? If we put a bottled bug in this safe, using RBA, and the game checks what's in there, it will interpret that as:

NO Bolero of Fire
NO Minuet of Forest
NO Light Medallion
Shadow Medallion
Spirit Medallion
Water Medallion
NO Fire Medallion
Forest Medallion

The reason the game interprets a bottled bug as those medallions has to do with the binary numeral system which isn't really important. If you are curious, you can try to make sense of it on the RBA chart http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?link=oot/ba/rba#quest. It may help to know that Bottled bug is 29 or 00011101 in binary.

Having the Shadow and Spirit medallions triggers the light arrows cutscene, which means we can get the light arrows and go beat gannon after doing the above RBA. This is incredibly useful in an any% speedrun, allowing us to beat the game in close to one hour!

Final thing. I've told you that you can overwrite your deku sticks item slot (8011A644) by putting deku sticks on c-right. What do you put on c-right to get at 8011A677? Looking at the chart, it says: Broken Goron Sword on C-right (adult-only). So if we put broken goron sword on C-right, and catch a bug, we'll have the shadow and spirit medallions.

If you're wondering by what magic Broken Goron Sword equals 8011A677, I'll give you a small hint. Looking at the item numbers, http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?link=oot/ba/itemchart, we see that Broken Goron Sword is 51. If we add 51 to 8011A644, you might think we get 8011A695, but you'd be wrong. This is hexadecimal, so have to calculate differently. Normal number 51 would be 33 in hexadecimal. You can verify that by doing 3x16 + 3 = 51. If we add 33 to 8011A644, what do we get? That's right! 8011A677, the memory address storing medallions.

You might also find this one useful
http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?link=oot/ba/rba_calculator

Especially in understanding the below run, you might want to try the calculator with "catch a bug" and Poacher's saw as well. It's used with the magic fairy in Death Mountain.

Rare Bird Adventure

Lol... It's Reverse Bottle Adventure. The blue cucco (Cojiro) is not required to use it. What you need is a bottle on your B button. When you catch something in this bottle, items in your inventory, equipment, or quest status screens change. The changes made depend on what you catch and which item is equiped your C-right.

I'm not sure why you explained the hexadecimal system in such a roundabout manner, it's a lot easier to understand if you simply know what it is. Instead of having 10 digits, (0-9), hexadecimal (or hex) has 16: 0-F.

That's a good explanation. The RBA calculator is also very helpful.

All I can think of is that you're holding R for too long after picking the object up and you're not holding Z, which causes you to crouch and lose ISG.

I don't think you can use Reverse Bottle Adventure to modify the C-Item equipment screen, but I'm not 100% sure about that. However, I know for a fact that you cannot use RBA to obtain any C-Item that you don't already have. The way RBA works is that it overwrites some value with the item value of the item on B. Since RBA only seems to work when an item overwrites itself when it's on B, and only items that do that are bottles, the only items that could possibly be RBA'd in the C-Item equipment screen would be bottles.

You can use Bottle Adventure to put light arrows on B, but i doubt that'll be much use.

Just RBA the Shadow and Spirit Medallions (Broken Biggoron Sword on C-right, catch a bug/fairy/fish/blue fire with B-bottle). When you go the Temple of Time, you'll receive them from Zelda.

It's very easy.

Steps:
1. Align yourself into the railing corner.
2. Pull out the hookshot and aim just to the right of the doorway.
3. Hold Z and do a backflip
4. Immediately after triggering the backflip hit the hookshot button (this makes the backflip go shorter backwards).
5. After landing on the other side of the rail, walk left and then push A to drop from the ledge.
6. Align yourself with the stars and jump into the OOB area in the exact opposite direction of the stairs.

For people who can't do superslides consistently (like me), do a "nub superslide".

Basically, shield drop a bomb then sidehop and shield drop another. Back up a bit and roll forward into the second bomb as the first explodes and mash a. It's WAY easier but requires two bombs.

Hi, I am doing the max% adult challenge, and I'm wondering if I might have fucked up my file:

In doing adult Deku Tree, I made the mistake of breaking the web and jumping down to B1, so now I can't unload the second web down there. Is it possible to break that web using another method? So far I've attempted to hover behind a torch (the one closest to the block you can push) and hit the web with a fire arrow, but I haven't had any luck with that method yet, because the torch seems to push me down and away when I get too close to it.

Backflip onto the chest with a heart in it near the torch and you should be able to shoot a fire arrow through the torch at the web.  Its a tricky shot because your elevation is just barely above the web, but its possible.

When performing the Actor Overwrite Glitch in the Bottom of the Well to get the Bombchus early, how do you initiate the Walking While Talking trick?

Is there some way to get Navi to fly to the message on the wall in the main room, or do I just sit there like a chump until she wants to talk to me?

There is a crawlspace here, crawl through it, and perform the Walking While Talking trick, only instead of talking, open the locked door.

On that note, there isn't another way to activate Walking While Talking that we know of. Navi won't talk to you while your in a dungeon, and I believe the message on the wall/green bubble is too far away from the tunnel to Z-Target and read

That part is worded badly.  What it means is you need to quickly run over to the door and open it before the camera goes back to link instead of looking at the crawlspace.

You actually can do WWT with the sign on the wall, but it doesn't unload part of the room, its opening the door that does that.

I have a question about the DoT skip.
I can clip through almost every time I try now, but I'm having trouble with the jumpslash.
I've gotten it on pc very often, but not on N64, so I tried pause buffering.
You need to press B the first frame link is OoB right?
But every time I do that I get back to the right side of the door.
I also tried holding left while pressing B, but still I have to wait for a tiny bit before pressing B.
If I let it go to the next frame I fall down..
What am I doing wrong?

I've been trying to do the bottom of the well Walking While Talking glitch (I think that's what it's called) where you go through the tunnel and open the door before the screen moves so you don't need Zelda's Lullaby. Do you have to have the small key for it to work, or can you just open the door the regular way?

Another Bottom of the Well Actor Overwrite Glitch question.

What's the trick to clipping the vines with the Skulltula?

Do I have to move the joystick up and down after hitting the A-Button to drop? Or should I not use the A-Button to drop? I am using a Deku Nut to freeze the Skulltula.

Does it matter that I don't have the Kokiri Sword?
