Henriko's Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D HD Texture Pack (v1.2.0 2020-10-15)

Hello! This is my HD texture pack page for Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D! :grinning:

Psst! I also have a HD texture pack for Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Luigi’s Mansion, Pikmin 1 & 2 and Super Mario Sunshine!

Some general info regarding this texture pack which you should read before you download it;

  • There are ~6000 unique textures in the game ( I have tried to dump every single one, however I may have missed a few ). Out of these textures a few hundred have been completely re-textured or upscaled to look substantially better than the original. Other textures have been left untouched until I’ve worked on them. The textures that I’ve upscaled have been so using waifu2x-caffe, letsenhance.io using these instructions by Bighead. Some filtered textures have been modified or changed entirely to look better as well. In many cases, filtered textures look worse than the original textures so that’s why I’ve decided to leave many of them untouched until a later point.

  • It is very important to me that the texture pack stays faithful to the original vision. This means that I try my hardest to make new textures look like higher resolution versions of the original textures, and not like brand new textures or out-of-place mashups.

  • I am completely up for suggestions, changes and submissions. You will of course be fully credited for any work you submit. These are still very early days and there is much work left to do.

  • In-game text has not been upscaled yet because of the strange way Ocarina of Time handles text printing. If you want smooth text, enable the xBRZ freescale filter in the Citra Graphics Settings and set it to “3” or higher (if your computer can handle it!).

  • The pack is scaled to 8x the default resolution , this means that ( if the internal resolution is increased in Citra ) you may be able to view some textures at a staggering 3200x1920 resolution! A lower resolution version (4x) is also available for weaker computers.

  • This texture pack is for Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D only. There are no plans to port it to the N64 version.

  • This texture pack will work with any custom mods / hacks of Ocarina of Time 3D as long as they don’t add new textures or change old ones (in that case, conflicting textures will be overwritten by one another but it will still work).

  • This texture does not include material maps since Citra does not support this feature yet.

  • It works with all versions of the game, including the PAL/JAP/KOR versions of the game.

  • The total file size of the texture pack is roughly 6GB for the 4K version, and 1.7GB for the 1080p version.

  • Post-Processing works if you install ReShade into Citra and follow the instructions provided in the installation folder for Zelda OOT3DHD (update 1.1.0 onwards) and grants access to some great graphical enchancements like Ambient Occlusion, Depth of Field, Bloom, Tonemapping and more!

  • Special thanks to Luke Gonet for letting me use their 4K render of the Medallions! Please check out their portfolio here.


1.2.0 (2020-10-15):

  • Time time around I’ve focused on covering areas that previously had not been worked on at all. This includes;

    • Ice Cavern

  • Fixed the infamous rainbow / colored dots bug that plagued a majority of the textures from last update!

  • Minor fixes and changes
  • Added alternate PS4 button layot optional download to fit the 3DS button layout instead of the PS4 controller layout by tvloidw!

  • Minor bug fixes and changes.


  • Many bug fixes and minor changes.
  • Fixed the “corrupted texture” bug for most textures, including the Master Sword Holster, the Water Temple and the Fire Temple, Zora King and more. If you find more textures with the corruption bug, please report to me on Discord.

  • Minor update with various changes and improvements. Text is now much clearer and the title screen has been slightly updated as well.
  • Updated download link to make downloading the texture pack as easy as possible.


  • Added over 700 high quality filtered textures, all hand checked and verified to make sure they reach a certain quality.
  • Roughly 50 hand edited textures, including various HUD elements.
  • Fixed an error where the title screen didn’t show custom textures properly
  • Prepared texture pack for .dds BC7 support once Citra adds it (smaller file size, same quality!)
  • Added a READ_ME file with installation instructions
  • Multiple NPCs’ skin now render properly
  • Fixed an issue where certain textures only displayed a black texture
  • Improved quality of various textures


  • Initial release

Comparison images:

Note: All comparison shots have been taken with the exact same settings in Citra with internal resolution set to 7x and Linear Filtering enabled.

Here are some more screenshots with the texture pack activated;

Progression: ~85% done. I focus on the most important and prevalent textures first.

Installation guide:

The installation is now extremely simple. Just download the texture pack and extract the folder somewhere on your PC, then open the Citra emulator using “Zelda OOT3D 4K.exe” and start the game. Enjoy!

If you encounter any issues with the texture pack please post them in the comments of this post, or PM them to me on my Discord server.

Amazing work,man, thank you! I will look forward to updates. Are you planning to release the same pack for Mask of Majora?

I’m thinking about doing it for Majora’s Mask as well since a lot of the textures are very similar to each other. It will take time though, so don’t expect anything that soon.

Update time!

1.0.2 Changelog:

  • Minor update with various changes and improvements. Text is now much clearer and the title screen has been slightly updated as well.
  • Should now work on all versions of Ocarina of Time 3D (Japanese, Korean, NTSC and PAL)
  • Updated download link to make downloading the texture pack as easy as possible.

How does this differ from just changing the internal resolution in Citra options?

The difference between changing the internal resolution in the enhancements section of Citra and installing a HD texture pack is that when the texture pack is installed, texture resolution is increased rather than just the rendered output. This means that individual textures look way less pixelated and more detailed. If you only increase internal resolution the textures themselves don’t actually change. This is especially noticable in HUD elements and large textures. You can think about it like this; if you increase internal resolution the game file size doesn’t change. No files are being altered or replaced and nothing really happens with the game itself. Now, if you install a custom high resolution texture pack then you actually replace files in the game with other higher resolution ones, which also increases the game’s total size - since more data is being added.

Another way to look at it is to compare it with old PC games. Try playing an old game like DOOM on a modern machine and the graphics will be very outdated, even though you can technically play the game in 1080p on a computer today. There are mods and texture packs to update the the graphics for older games, this is one of them!

I tried to explain it as best I could. Hope it’s enough! :smiley:

Great stuff. Thank you so much for your efforts. The gossip statue next to links house looks weird. Is it just me or you are aware of that already. Cheers

Yes, the colors of the gossip statue are mixed up as well as treasure chests for me.

Yes, the chests and the gossip statues are messed up for some reason, I am looking into why this may be. It seems to be an issue with transparency.

Awesome! Thanks again for this pack :grinning::100:

Hi, I downloaded version 1.0.3 and the Sheika stones and treasure chests are fixed now. Thanks for that. I have noticed that the tentacles inside Jabu Jabu have broken textures as well as the Zora King. Also, for some strange reason the icons for the inventory items are now invisible.

The icons become visible if you go into Citra settings and enable “Accurate Multiplication”. Please send me a screenshot of the bugged tentacles if you can. I’ll look into it asap! :slight_smile:
