Super Mario RPG Zero (EarthBound Beginnings Hack ROM)
« on: October 03, 2020, 10:01:07 pm »
This is another of my projects that I am also working on.


It is a Mario RPG game for the NES with mechanics from EarthBound Beginnings (MOTHER 1).


Currently the Alpha phase has been completed; No version has been published but we will be working on a Beta version which will be published.

However we have a video of an alpha demo, which can be viewed on our website:

Thanks for your attention.

I would suggest using the Super Mario Brothers 3 Sprite for Mario as it's clashing stylistically with the toads and the environment due to the lack of an outline.
Somebody alert me when a user friendly BS Zelda hacking tool is made. I will give my soul to work on a faithful SNES remake of Zelda 1.

I agree with pocket, it would look better. I have a hack of Nuts & Milk that uses the SMB3 style toad from Super Mario Maker 2, and I have an old SMB3 hack that's been dead that has custom Peach sprites, you can use them because it'll a better fit than having the SMB2 style Toad and Peach looking like they've scalped.

PM me if you want the help. ;)

I like the title screen, it looks authentic. :)
You made the Mario sprites, right? I thought you'd go with the small Mario sprite from SMB3.
I'm glad you took my suggestions with the Toad and Peach sprites, they look way better. :)
I wasn't expecting Wario, the Wario sprites look familiar. ;) I was expecting the small Luigi sprites from SMAS SMB3.

I looked through your hack, it looks like the only thing you gotta edit is the spirits when the characters die, it's been so long since I hacked this game.

Good stuff, I'll play through it some more after I do my chores. :D

This looks like it's potentially interesting. Any hints on the storyline?

Hey, I was bored so I took the liberty of adding the font alotta NES English translated games use, I think the font name is Toma. Here's what it looks like in your 1.1 version of the hack.



Lemme know if you want me to send you your hack with the new font, I think it looks better than the original font. :D
