ROM Hacks: Star Fox Exploration Showcase 8.45.2 is out!
« on: July 19, 2021, 04:11:09 pm »

Update By: kandowontu

Star Fox Exploration Showcase is a fully featured showcase of some of the possible things that can be done to modify the original game. Some of the notable features are 2 player mode, new views, new weapons/ships, a new 4th course, and endurance run, a new game+ mode, a god mode, and much, MUCH more!

Today Star Fox Exploration Showcase has unleashed a force that has never been seen before. An update so massive, so expansive that Luigi himself has shown up and joined forces with Andross to bring you MECHA LUIGI! (Thanks to Starxxon for the model)

Challenge the game in New Game+ mode to face him!

The game also now proudly features an in-game pause menu, a further expanded pre-game menu with many more mods, accurate first person views available in all areas of the game, a 4 player CPU assault mode, a new view, and much, much more under the hood.

Lots of love and care went into each and every feature of this mod. Enjoy! Will you be the first person to beat Mecha Luigi?

Full Changelog:


*Pregame menu expanded to add:
-Palette Changes
-No Ground Dots
-Disable BGM or SFX
-Fast/Slow BGM mode
-Dark Mode (No light sourcing)
-2 player CPU+ mode
-4 player CPU assault mode

*In-Game Pause menu to change the following:
-Ship Model
-Double Shot on/off

-Step by Step mode - move the game one frame at a time with left or right when highlighting this. You can also hold left or right to continue moving through frames, and you can hold up/down and shoot while holding left or right.

*MECHA LUIGI added to New Game+ mode - he replaces Andross's core, and he has a completely new attack pattern. Good luck! (Thanks for the model, Starxxon!)
