I have some questions, all of which arose today

1) I was able to walk into the curiosity shop right before 10. When I walked in, it was still 9 for about a half second. Is that like a one frame window or something because I've never been able to do it before.
2) On my 100% complete file, Navi said "shouldn't you see the fairy in north clock town? you only have x hours left." Is this a side effect of duplicating a bottle over the ocarina?
I had another question but I forgot.

1.) Yes, (I'm pretty sure at least)

2.) Yes, that is one of the several side effects from duping a bottle over the ocarina.

What are the other side effects? I thought nothing happened when you put hsw in it

Termina Field has no actors in it, only grass.

Also if you play Oath to Order(Ocarina on B) you can't go to the Moon, it just warps you to Termina Field.

But that has nothing to do with HSW, just that the game checks if you are in the first cycle, by checking if you have the ocarina.

I just remembered my other question:

for some reason, I can't shield when I go oob to get curiosity shop early (but in all other instances of oob it's possible for me to hover). Why? I can get in without it.

After you shoot the hookshot you need to let go of Z then hit Z again before you shield.

Well, I was going to ask if it was impossible to isg the scarecrow after the first time you talk to him as you enter a room (I tried for 5 minutes each time and I only got it right after I walked in).

However, I'm not so sure anymore because I was recording a Snowhead run (and I was 5 seconds ahead of my previous run). And I just could not get the ISG on the bomb to hover to the snowballs. It took me 7 bombs. And I actually got a good Goht battle afterwards... damn.

Edit: Goht just ruined another good run of mine. Is there a certain position where he absolutely cannot hit you?

It doesn't matter where you stand since his blasts are random. I have best luck along the snow lining right under that middle cell looking window thing. <_< But yeah, just line up somewhere under that cell window thing and you'll have good luck there.

Ok, I'm convinced. Getting the ISG on the scarecrow after the first time you talk to him upon entering is impossible. I get the ISG on anything about 90% of the time on my first slash, and I can't get it after the first time (on trading post scarecrow non-song if it matters).

Also that backflip ss trick jiano is too good. I can get the ss almost everytime. Is there a timing trick on when to shield when doing a backwalking SS? That'd help a ton.

Right when the bomb starts to flash fast (the 4th/5th flash), drop the bomb, back up like 2 steps then roll.

I for one think that there are no glitches in OoT. It's just gameshark codes.

RBA stands for Rare Bird Adventure. We call it that because we need to get the blue cucco in order to use it.

How come the ESS-in-place thing (as outlined in the Recoil Jump page) doesn't work sometimes? Like, at random times during the game I'll be able to do it consistently and do a perfect recoil jump, other times though it's simply impossible to get that ESS part. Is there a trick to this or am I just messed up?

edit: Oh, that's my first post? Guess I've been lurking too long..

Are you starting the ess in place while already in Z targeting?  That might be why.  Try letting go of Z and pressing it again quickly and it should get you into the ess in place.

The only option is to ISG. The pause buffering method is guaranteed, I haven't failed it in a long time.

1. you don't need to superslide, just stsnd on the edges when the wind blows and weave your way up

2. you're timing your superslides wrong. You have to be stand up from your roll right before it explodes. Any sooner or later will get you nothing.

there is a little problem...
the wind blows into the other direction.
so it always blows me down the ramp if i'm not fast enough in a corner.
there is an edge i can stand. if i continue walking, it blows me down again.
i'm trying at the last edge to walk - sidehop and hover till the wind ends for a little while, sidehop running up and then to hover again.

i hope my explosives are enough for this...

Do it fast. that's pretty much it. you need to shield the chu not even a split second afterwards, pretty much do it at the same time

Okay thanks. And is there a better way of timing superslides-while-walking than what I've been doing (start backwalking, pull bomb, wait until 5th flash, drop bomb, step back, roll, shield, mash A)

backwalk, press R at the fifth flash, wait 2 steps, and mash A.

hold back on the stick the entire time

got problems with that too... I test it this way - if i can fly above the coast without landing, I'm high enough... maybe it is crap, but this seems to me as a good method to test the height...
