Luigi and Autosave rock but ruined by constant HUD animation

Reviewed By: legend80 on 27 Nov 2021

I can FINALLY play as Luigi without the glitches other hacks / cheats cause (like palette swapping). Autosave = awesome.

BUT it’s all completely ruined by the unbelievably annoying and distracting HUD. I love DKCR and there’s a huge difference between that and what this hack adds.

With the hack, it’s a slow scroll in and out animation that triggers your attention every time you get ANYTHING in the game. So your eyes are being drawn to the movement every other second. That’s why Nintendo didn’t do this and chose a static HUD so your attention is not being challenged every 2 secs…

With DKCR, the hearts are static and only bananas/coins cause the additional elements to appear. BUT it’s much more subtle and doesn’t distract. It kinda pops on and then pops off, as opposed to a slow scroll in/out like the hack.

Please either remove this, update the behavior (reduce/alt. animation or speed up maybe) or put into a separate file like many hacks do to split it up providing the user some options to suit their preference. Then it’ll be an instant raving recommendation. :)
