Other: NES Metroid HD Pack Released
« on: August 11, 2018, 03:22:36 am »

Update By: Aclectico

An HD pack is now available for the NES game, Metroid. This pack replaces graphics, sound effects, and music. It is a hack that builds upon many prior hacks and it uses Metroid mOTHER as a base (available at: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1988/). Credit should go to the original authors for work done on prior hacks.

The pack includes, but it not limited to, some of the features detailed below. Many of these features are carryover from prior hacks that have previously been developed for Metroid. Items denoted with an asterisk are brand new features that have been created exclusively for the Mesen pack.

-Increased resolution**
-Scrolling backgrounds**
-Updated sound effects and music**
-File resources for alternate sound and graphics**
-New title and ending screen**
-Minimap
-Animated environments
-Beam stacking
-Saving
-Full health on startup

Players must use a new version of the Mesen emulator that was released on August 5, 2018 (version 0.9.6 is available at: https://www.mesen.ca/#Downloads). Older versions of the Mesen emulator will not work properly.

The README contains details the work performed by each author below that helped make the HD pack possible:
Kya, Sour, dACE, snarfblam, Infinity's End, DemickXII, Psyklax, Maximum Potion, VariaZim, WIP, Exaelart, Riklaionel, elgwen, strugglepoo, Luminist, Jorge Fuentes, and Patricio Herrera.

I ran through this last night and it was much more impressive than I initially thought it would be.

Great work.
