Super Metroid Project Base Levels + Control Freak

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

Super Metroid Project Base 7.2 Levels + Control Freak (Ultimate) by Omn [Version 1.1.1]

The goal of this hack is to make Super Metroid feel as if it were a GBA remake (additions and “improved” controls)

This patch combines Project Base with Control Freak, plus adding heavier physics, restoring the mountains and rain of the opening (Essentially GBA Style with Project Base Levels)

For this patch, the hacks used were Project Base Gameplay Only 7.2, Control Freak, Project Control Freak Base, Project Base Vanilla Gameplay 7.2, and Heavier Physics (from Project Base), and some minor parts of Nintendit and Project Base Vanilla Palettes 7.2

The main additions are fixing the save issues caused by the combination of patches, adding back the rain and opening Crateria song, and restoring the Crateria cave backgrounds (no more space indoors) and the old tanks (optional)

There are multiple patches. Please use only one.

  • Super Metroid Ultimate Old Tanks.ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate PB Tanks.ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate Old Tanks (Nintendit Maridia).ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate PB Tanks (Nintendit Maridia).ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate Old Tanks Vanilla Palette.ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate PB Tanks Vanilla Palette.ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate Old Tanks Vanilla Palette (Nintendit Maridia).ips
  • Super Metroid Ultimate PB Tanks Vanilla Palette (Nintendit Maridia).ips

Descriptions of differences

  • Old Tanks vs. PB Tanks: Old Tanks restores the glass around the missile and super missile tanks as well as the stand for the power bombs; PB Tanks uses the Project Base style of tanks meaning no glass and no stand for power bombs
  • Vanilla Palette: uses the changes from the Project Base Vanilla Palette version while keeping the many of the Crateria caves with a non night background
  • Nintendit Maridia: removes the pink from Maridia like in the Nintendit hack

Changelog:

  • 1.0: Release
  • 1.1: Fixed Background corruption and corrected palettes in some Maridia locations when using Nintendit or Vanilla palettes version
  • 1.1.1: Fixed issue with Flips patcher not allowing patching

Bugs:

  • Occasional slow down when shooting
  • Opening Flashback is slightly bugged (However it does not softlock the game)

User Review Information

Could be great, but has a major flaw

Reviewed By: TheGershon on 10 Jun 2019

Excellent hack. Super Metroid’s physics have never been better, and it takes all of the best parts of Project Base and Nintendit and combines it into one complete package. In my opinion, this is the definitive way to play Super Metroid. Having so many different patch options included is also a great plus. Highly recommended.
