I was not expecting to come back to so much activity in this thread, wow. Looks like a lot of progress is being made toward a Mario and Luigi mode in each game, not to mention some of the other things I had on my wish list.
I'm unfortunately still waiting to hear anything from Darksamus or MetalWario, and it's not looking much like I'll have time to work on the hacks any time soon anyway ( long story short, I lost my job, and all my free time has to go to art commissions for the time being. )
I don't even remember what was left to do in this project, lmao. I was pretty bad about keeping that part of the OP updated. If I can try to recall...
SMB1 player sprites ( and I think those were the ONLY things left in SMB1, MetalWario said he would take care of them, and maybe touching up Bowser a bit )
SMB2 - Mostly done, just a few pallet changes, and seeing if I can't make Mecha Mouser and Dry Clyde a reality.
SMB3 - A few big Mario sprites, small Mario, Frog/Raccoon/Tanooky/Hammer Mario, Luigi, Peach, World 1 and World 6 king ( those two being darksamus territory, the actual sprites are done, but are currently too large and don't move correctly.), a lot of the power-up icons, and Battle Mode enemy sprites
SMB:TLL - Small Mario and Luigi sprites, Bowser, Peach, Toad, and Special edition versions of Bowser, Peach, and Toad, + ending kiss scene if I alter Peach. ( Though to be honest i'm thinking of scrapping the special version altogether. )
And the list for SMW is so long it's not worth even listing out. The only thing I'm actually happy with in SMW is Yoshi and Wendy O Koopa. I've been very iffy about doing a SMAS+W version since the beginning, on account of the much more limited color pallet and seeming impossibility to fix the colors of most of the koopalings. So I don't know if I still plan to do the SMAS+W version. I prefer SMW as a stand alone anyway.
I may be unable to continue for some time, maybe in a few months at the soonest. But, i'm open to the idea of sharing what i've already done to people who think they can help, if you want to touch up something i've done or even attempt to sprite what I haven't done yet. I don't want to make it public to just anyone and everyone though, so you'd need to PM me to discuss it further.
