Hello Romhacking.net! It's Grego, creator of the UltraNet network adapter for SNES. I have come bearing gifts!
After months of collaboration with the very talented Richard Bukor, aka CatadorDeLatas, we have created our first mod together.
I am proud to introduce F-Zero Final v0.2, a mod which brings together all of the content available in the F-Zero series in one convenient package.

So what does it do?
F-Zero Final reworks the league and track loading functions of F-Zero to allow for additional tracks and leagues to be loaded.
By appending the BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2 rom to F-Zero, Ace league has become available for the first time.
In addition the Grand Prix 2 vehicles have been added to the roster allowing for the selection of all 8 original hover cars!
A custom league selection menu was created to allow ace league to be selected. Practice mode has also been enhanced to allow for all 20 maps to be selected.
This project is the foundation for a completely new level editor Richard and I are working on currently code named "FZEdit". It is also the beginning of a new era in F-Zero modding. Through this project all original content from all versions of F-Zero for SNES will be included into one FINAL game. All 8 hover cars, all 20 tracks, custom leagues, custom maps, custom backgrounds, tilesets, and palettes. F-Zero's world is now your oyster.
But what's even better than playing F-Zero by yourself in your parents' basement? Playing with a friend! F-Zero Final is 100% compatible with F-Zero VS for the UltraNet!
