2020-09-27 - I'd heard about the A Link to the Past Randomizer before, but I've only fairly recently started playing randomized games and watching some of the competitve races that they do. I've picked up on all sorts of interesting strategies and knowledge of the game's workings (and ways to break it, though a surprising number of glitches were patched out in the English release) from this, so I'm adding some extra commentary related to that. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all comments about logical requirements assume seeds generated with no glitching required.
2015-09-07 - A few minor revisions here and there.
2014-03-01 - More minor changes, mostly clarifications on how various items work, and a small section on tricky uses some of them have that you should never need to use outside of a hack.
29 Apr 2012 - A few minor revisions. There's really not much left to do here unless I decide to add a monster guide, similar to the existing boss guide.
27 Feb 2011 - Some minor revisions and additions.
21 Aug 2010 - Cleaned up the translated text by adding line breaks, and also made a few revisions here and there. The only major one is that Sahasralah's caution in the Ice Temple says to "be very cautious about advancing into the depths" if "you do not carry Magic Medicine" (emphasis added), not "you may carefully advance" if you do have it.
? (never recorded the date) - Story text revised and redivided into pieces that are easier to manage. Minor revisions to boss guide.
18 Nov 2006 - Formatting improvements and some other minor fixes.
16 Sep 2006 - I finally figured out a good equivalent for one of the old man's lines on the mountain when Link first meets him (悪いことは言わない), after having seen and heard the same phrase elsewhere and applying the principle of context.
19 Mar 2006 - Boss guide added. That was a wonderful waste of time, but at least I learned a few things about how the game works.
28 Dec 2005 - Item information added, and some minor corrections in the main text.
