Author's Description: Loz is a remake of the Legend of Zelda. I made it by disassembling the original game and writing my own based on my findings.
The game doesn't come with game resources. These must be extracted from the original game. For this purpose, my remake has a companion program that extracts the original game's resources.
The game will not run without a D3DX9 DLL, for example d3dx9_43.dll, and the corresponding D3DCompiler DLL (D3DCompiler_43.dll). This is because the shader compiler needed by ALLEGRO_PROGRAMMABLE_PIPELINE is in there, but no such DLLs are included with later versions of Windows such as 10. You can get them by installing the DirectX runtime version 9, or extracting the files from inside it.
