Title: Captain Fetch Goes Go-Karting (SMK hack)
Post by: TehRealSalt on March 23, 2019, 04:47:33 pm
(Old thread title was "Super Mario Kart: Retread")

Work in progress Super Mario Kart hack I've been at for almost 2 weeks now. I mainly aim to replace all of the original game's track layouts and completely redraw all of their graphics (coming up with entirely new themes in the process). It's about 25% complete now, with Mushroom Cup & a battle course being finished. At the end I might be interested in making very minor gameplay tweaks, but we'll see.

It's great to see the original Mario Kart get hacks like this. I only wish F-Zero got the same treatment.

It'd be a shame to change the title! I came here just to say how clever I thought it was.

Makes me wish someone could further polish that "Full-Screen Super Mario Kart" hack. These new tracks would look absolutely divine on a full-screen level.

This is looking like a fun SMK hack, the screens look really cool, too.  :laugh:

Recently picked this back up, it's now approximately 75% done; the first 3 cups are fully playable.

Also starting to put my OCs in it to replace all of the characters, so I guess it's no longer Mario Kart.

Due to personal reasons (feeling extremely bad about Nintendo's handling of fan-made content, mostly), I've pretty much lost all motivation to work on this.

I got the first 3 cups of the game done, and 2 of the Battle courses. Might be a few other unfinished courses in there too.
Only 3 of the 8 characters were fully replaced, everyone else will have busted palettes.

The game was play-tested in every game mode with a friend over net-play. Item rebalance was modified to make 2P more fun and allow for more comebacks.

Maybe one day I'll revisit it because I had a lot of fun making it, but for now my energy is non-existent.

(Patch expects a headerless ROM -- I noticed bsnes complains about the patch, but it plays fine afterwards.)
