Majora's Mask Glitches - Version Guide
You may not know it but there is more than one version of Majora's Mask. The newer the version, the fewer the number of glitches that can be performed. It's helpful to know which version you have so that you don't sit there for hours trying to do a glitch that you can't actually do on your version, all the glitches on this site will tell you which version of the game you need to do them, so all you need to know is what version you have, which is what this page is for.
There are multiple versions of Majora's Mask:
- JPN v1.0: The original Japanese release of Majora's Mask.
- JPN v1.1: Patched version of JPN v1.0 to fix some few loose ends and oddities. (Notably many music related issues.)
- USA: The one and only release of Majora's Mask in the USA. No bugs were fixed for the Virtual Console release.
- PAL v1.0: The original Europe release of Majora's Mask.
- PAL v1.1: Patched version of PAL v1.0 to fix some few loose ends and oddities. (Supposedly, this only applies to the French version which fixed many spelling and grammar mistakes.)
Because the v1.1 releases are just either bug fixes and or grammar/spelling fixes, there will be no need to add a v1.0 and v1.1 for the current glitch header.

Text differences between different MM versions
Between the N64 USA and N64 PAL there were alot of text differences. And these even got changed for the gamecube re-releases. Special thanks goes to darkeye14 again for his outstanding job on finding these differences. Video can be viewed here. If you do not wish to watch the video, he has made a huge image with these differences. Medium and High quality respectively.
