Insane Majora's Mask Glitch (With Pictures)

Postby tower07 » Thu Dec 13, 2012 5:04 pm

So today me and my dad decided to play Majora's Mask on the '64.
The night before, I loaded up my old game and played for a minute.
When we turned it on today, the save files were gone.
We reset the system and used different Save Paks, (probably the basis of the glitch) but to no avail.
So we decided we'd start a new save file.

Everything was working perfectly normal until the initial cutscene ended, in which Link immediately fell over dead. (This freaked us out quite a bit. I'd post pictures of this, but I wasn't exactly expecting it.) I then opened my inventory, and as soon as I realized what was in it, I ran and got my camera.

The Masks screen was also filled with Ocarinas. We had no idea whatsoever as to why this happened. There is nothing wrong with the console, the Save Paks work, and we've never used a Gameshark or anything like that on it. We then sort of shrugged it off and went about the game.

Everything was normal except for the 150 kabillion Ocarinas we had. As soon as we got to the part with the Happy Mask Salesman, we realized we could skip a nice chunk of the game. (He tells you to get the Ocarina, and once you give it back you move on with the game.) We then gave him one of the Ocarinas, and bypassed the first part of the game. For some reason though, it didn't give us a sword. This caused us to not be able to save the file, because you use it to hit the owl statues.

We carried on with the game, out of pure curiosity. We went into the Great Fairy Cave/Shrine/Thing and everything went normal until she stopped talking, in which link fell over dead. No matter how many times we talked to her, Link would always die.

Aside from the dyeing and Ocarinas, everything worked relatively normal, at least, until nightfall. Right before the sun set, the Cuccos' sounds started sounding weird. I grabbed my camera to record the noise, then something white flashed on the screen. I didn't catch what it was though. But when I used the controller, all of a sudden the game froze white, with only faint silhouettes of things remaining.

The game just stayed there, the only thing happening was this creepy noise;

I then pressed reset, but it didn't come back on. I even turned it off and back on, but it didn't work. It took quite a few minutes to get the game working again, but when we did, our old save files were back.

I have no idea what in the world caused that, nor why our save files returned. :?
Anyone have this sort of thing happen to them?

Jeeze. That's a better creepy pasta than half the ones out there. (I know it's not meant to be, but still). Reminds me of the "Ben" haunted majoras mask.

About a week before this happened, I had read a creepypasta about a guy playing an old 64 game. So you can guess what was going through my mind. :P
After that, I told myself to never ever ever read another creepypasta ever.

I keep reading them, for the sole purpose of getting in the mood for working on my horror game.

Eventually you get to the point where you're creepy paranoid.

Gotta love creepypastas. It's amazing to see what people can come up with. This one was pretty good. Put it on the Creepypasta Wiki :P
Bet you wasn't expecting me to come back so quickly.

Also, it's not really a ghost story or anything, it's just a series of weird glitches.
