SMK Mirror Mode - A new twist on a old classic!

14 December 2020 5:29PM EST - Update by Dirtbag

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Super Mario Kart Mirror Mode is a high quality collaborative hack by the SMKWorkshop team that brings new life into the original classic. First introduced as an unlockable class in Mario Kart 64 a mirror mode has been included in every iteration of Mario Kart since Double Dash!! The original Super Mario Kart never featured an official mirror mode.

After playing another mirror mode hack that was fun, but not without issues R4M0N set out to create a mathematically perfect mirrored set of tracks programmatically using Excel marcos. Dirtbag inserted the track data back into the ROM, created a new title screen and with the help of MrL314 re-coded the demos to work correctly and added some ASM hacks to give the hack a few extra mirrored features.

Play this new twist on a old classic featuring the following changes:

  • All 24 track layouts perfectly mirrored
  • All track overlays mirrored (GP, TT and Vs. Modes)
  • Object placements Mirrored, including Ghost Valley’s pillars
  • CPU AI Mirrored
  • Mirrored animated tiles (Water, Lava, etc.)
  • Mirrored track background layouts
  • Mirrored title screen animation routine
  • Mirrored demo input recordings
  • Mirrored player select screen
  • Mirrored race results screen background and animations
  • Mirrored cup select screen animations
  • Mirrored podium background, and cloud direction
  • Additional mirrored track tiles where required

ROM size has been kept to 512KB - One of the aims of this hack was to do in in an elegant way as possible and keep within the confine of the original ROM size

Super Mario Unlimited updated with new Deluxe version

27 November 2020 10:22AM EST - Update by frantik

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Inspired by the likes of DahrkDaiz, ATA and other great rom hackers of the mid-2000s, Frantik started work on Super Mario Unlimited with the hopes of creating his own asm-heavy Mario masterpiece. It took close to 7 years, but eventually the game was released to the world in late 2011. Overall the hack was well received and was even featured in a video by James Rolfe of AVGN fame. Despite the popularity, it was a little rough around the edges, most notably with some questionable choices near the end and a little too much of that infamous “Nintendo Hard”.

In 2017 Frantik decided to go back and start adding a bit more polish, and Super Mario Unlimited - Deluxe was born. Everything good about the original has been made better, and everything bad has been removed, or at least cleaned up. This is the original vision Frantik had when he started 15 years ago!

Celebrate Super Mario World 30th anniversary with Super Luigi World!

20 November 2020 12:55PM EST - Update by Sephy

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Celebrate Super Mario World 30th anniversary with Super Luigi World! Luigi steals the spotlight in this iconic platformer for the SNES. Play the original levels with the same classic gameplay, but this time you’re playing as Luigi!

Features

  • Luigi’s sprite from Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World
  • Luigi is now Player 1 and Mario is Player 2
  • All text now refers to Luigi, including:
    • A modified title screen logo
    • Savefile names
    • Message boxes
    • Boss clear texts
    • The ending text after beating the game
    • Credits

The inspiration for Super Luigi World came from playing the second half of Super Mario Galaxy in the 3D All-Stars Collection. This spawned the idea of creating a Luigi-version of Super Mario World dedicated to Luigi-fans!

It always felt off that the ending said “Mario’s adventure is over.” even if you beat the game as Luigi.

Super Luigi World restores the balance as you can now play as Luigi in a 1 Player Game or force your younger siblings to play as Luigi’s red brother in 2 Player Game mode!

What started as a seemingly easy beginner project quickly began to take more time than expected. It was a fun way to start getting into romhacking but most of all it granted a new appreciation for the effort this community puts into these projects!

Please enjoy, Super Luigi World!

Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers

07 November 2020 10:20AM EST - Update by Ok Impala!

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers has come a long way. This ambitious project began all the way back in 2003. Starting as a direct follow-up to The Impala Battles, this mod was dubbed The Impala Courses. Later that changed to Epic Battle, and finally the name became Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers.

This mod was intended to be some sort of tribute to the Stifu Board forum. Therefore you’ll encounter members from back then. And no, Jesus himself wasn’t a member of our board, but he was a nice opposite to the dark Loki. ;-)

Work on Epic Racers started in a time when only small parts of the SMK ROM were documented. There were no other mods, and only one, very limited, editor. Step by step the complete ROM was documented. Using Lunar Compress, graphics could be extracted and changed.

Stifu started working on the graphics, while Ok Impala! painstakingly worked on changing the track designs. Initially it proved to be too complex to change the A.I., so tracks were created with the old A.I. The results were far from ideal. With the help of smkdan, Stifu started working on a new track designer to fix all the issues with track design once and for all. Epic Edit saw the light of day and was shared with the world. Meanwhile work on Epic Racers slowed down, due to life changes. In 2016 it seemed like the project was dead.

Fast forward to 2020. Ok Impala! decides to start from scratch on the track design, ditching all the ballast of the old track designs. Stifu got on board again to work on the last graphical changes. In several months, revamped tracks and graphics were created, while a lot of bugs and A.I. problems were ironed out.

So, there you have it. 17 years later, Epic Racers is finally, proudly, presented to the world. Hopefully you’ll enjoy all the work and love that went into this mod!

Features:

  • 20 brand new race tracks, with unique gameplay elements!
  • 4 brand new battle arena’s!
  • 8 new drivers are ready to start their engines!
  • New points system. Every position receives points!
  • New items and probability sets!
  • New course themes!
  • New objects!
  • New items!
  • New title screen!
  • New character selection screen!
  • Always continue to the next race in GP mode, regardless of your position!
  • Play the special cup in 50cc!
  • And a whole lot more!
