A small hack of Mario All Stars that makes Mario 1 and 2 (more importantly 2) save on a per level basis and allow selection of individual levels instead of worlds would be nice. That's my only gripe with the All Stars collection, and it would make it the perfect version of those games for me.
ok, so seeing this page got me super excitedI already made a small hack that adds the status screen from sma2 and saves dragon coins, along with a few other misc things. Though they don't do the shadow thing star coins do.
so, WOW! 15 new power-ups in SMW, cool right?
well turns out they are a nightmare to "implement"
it is involved in making your own SMW hacks and stuff
i wish someone would take a SMW vanilla and add these into it.
it could just be 15 bricks at Yoshi's house and 15 bricks at "Top Secret Area" that contain the items, it wouldn't be ideal, but it would work
i know the items werent made to originally work with the level design, but it would be fun to play vanilla SMW with these bonuses
the guy that was working on the "Redux style" SMW hack (that was great, btw) already added in a bunch of features from the Advanced version of SMW, i think this wouls fit in nicely too
the main thing it needs (and other hacks do this, i dont know why any of those hack makers dont release vanilla SMW with these upgrades) is Dragon Coins that remember if they are collected. they turn shadowy and blue (like a SM64 star after it's been collected) when you return to the level.
anyways, that's what should be done in SMW
