A randomizer for the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

Project description

Randovania

With Randovania, each Metroid Prime 2: Echoes playthrough shuffles the location of all items in the game. You could find the Light Beam right off the start, or the Bombs deep inside Sanctuary Fortress.

Installation

Usage

  1. Press 'Load Game' and then select a Metroid Prime 2: Echoes ISO file. Use a Nintendo GameCube version, either USA or PAL. Randovania Main GUI

    • Give it a few minutes to finish. This operation needs roughly 2 GiB of free storage in your system. (more precisely, local AppData)
  2. Configure the settings you wish to use in the 'Logic Settings' tab. Logic Settings Tab

  3. Input a seed number. You can press 'New Seed' for one to be generated for you. New Seed

  4. When finished, press 'Randomize' to create an ISO ready to be played. The ISO will be created in the folder you selected in 'Output Folder' Output Folder

    • The entire operation may take over 5 minutes to finish, depending on your computer.
    • An operation may also fail with an error similar to this. In this case, choose another Seed Number and try again. Generation Failure

Tracker

Randovania includes a simple "map" tracker for Echoes, accessible via the Open menu. Tracker Button

This tracker uses the logic and item loss configuration from the current permalink.

With it, you must act on each thing that trigger an event or has a pickup, as where you can go depends on where you are in the game, as well as which items you've picked and event yo've triggered.

Tracker

Currently, elevator randomizer is not supported for the tracker.

FAQ

I can't use this spider track, even though I have Spider Ball!

The following rooms have surprising vanilla behaviour about their spider tracks:

  • Main Reactor (Agon Wastes)

    The spider tracks only works after you beat Dark Samus 1 and reloads the room. When playing with no tricks, this means you need Dark Beam to escape the room.

  • Dynamo Works (Sanctuary Fortress)

    The spider tracks only works after you beat Spider Guardian. When playing with no tricks, you can't leave this way until you do that.

I can't open this Translator Gate, even though I have the correct translator!

  • GFMC Compound (Temple Grounds)

    This is actually a Violet gate.

  • Meeting Grounds (Temple Grounds)

    This is actually a Violet gate.

  • Torvus Temple (Torvus Bog)

    In order to open the elevator, you also need to pick the item in Torvus Energy Controller.

Where is the Flying Ing Cache inside Dark Oasis?

The Flying Ing Cache in this room appears only after you beat the Power Bomb Guardian.

When causes the Dark Missile Trooper to spawn?

Defeating the Bomb Guardian. Be careful: defeating the Bomb Guardian also locks the blue door in that room until you to visit Agon Energy Controller, which needs bombs.

What causes the Missile Expansion on top of the GFMC Compound to spawn?

Defeating the Jump Guardian.
