Randomize the location of items for a new experience

Current Stable: v8.1

Shuffle Items. Solve The Logic.

This randomizer takes The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and randomizes the locations of the items for a more dynamic play experience. Proper logic is used to ensure every seed is possible to complete without the use of glitches and will be safe from the possibility of softlocks with any possible usage of keys in dungeons.

Depending on settings, all dungeons will always have the same number of small keys, the boss key, maps and compasses. Which chests have those items will be random.
