Looks like using sound is a big thing
As of 4 PM on the afternoon of July 21, 2009, Id have told you that I struggled with King Dodongo and needed a script in order to beat him, but as of 4:30 PM on this same afternoon, Id now tell you that I figured out a way to do it myself, and here goes:
At the beginning of the fight, dont target, just grab a bomb, and throw it in, when hes stunned, attack him then run backwards to avoid his rolling. Find him in stereo and target him. Now heres where things get complicated- and this is why this boss had me beat for so many years. The sound does weird things in this battle. Under normal circumstances, the sound of link is constantly in the centre of your field of hearing, and you hear sounds of other things on either side of link, depending on where the object/enemy is decides where youll hear it- so if something is to the left of link, youll hear it on your left, right, youll hear it on your right, in front/ behind youll hear it centered. But when you target king dodongo, the sound is as if you are playing as KD and you are hearing the sounds around him in his perspective- like you are hearing the battle through King Dodongo's ears (does he even have ears?). Therefore, the sound of links footsteps can be on the left or right, where Dodongos sound is centered as a rule. Therefore, instead of making sure dodongos footsteps are centered, you actually have to move link until the sound of his footsteps are in the centre of your hearing (so if they are to the left, move right and vice versa), once theyre perfectly centered, move forward, all the while continuing to make sure the footsteps stay centered. Do it right and hell open his mouth again- bomb him, and attack him.
Runnerguy2489, if youre reading this and have a file that you can get to KD on, do you mind trying this strat blindfolded and tell me if it works for you?
I cant figure out why the sound acts so oddly in this battle, I guess its something to do with the camera when youre locked on to him but Im not sure.
