The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition is a compilation of four video games from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series, a twenty-minute demo of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and two featurettes. It was released for the Nintendo GameCube on November 7, 2003 in Japan; November 14, 2003 in Europe; November 17, 2003 in North America; and March 19, 2004 in Oceania. Not available for purchase, it was distributed through various promotions and bundles.


Third Width Graphics in NES Titles

NES titles will display using only a third of the screen width, partially showing an offset copy of the screen on the side. Enable Progressive Scan to avoid this. It also may be necessary to hold B while booting the game at least one time to properly enable Progressive Scan and disable XFB. Another workaround is enabling real XFB, but the game will run at a low resolution.

Broken Graphics in NES Titles

NES titles are unplayable due the major graphical issues. Fixed by 4.0-1288.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
Anisotropic Filtering 1x For NES titles: prevents broken text
Force Texture Filtering Off For NES titles: prevents corrupt graphics
Texture Cache Accuracy Safe (Position 1) For NES titles: fixes wrong sprites and text flickering
Enable Progressive Scan On For NES titles: fix graphic output, XFB must not be Virtual
