ROM Hacks: Luigi's Mansion - First-Person Hack Updated to v1.1
« on: January 17, 2022, 07:48:26 am »

Update By: Sky Bluigi

Luigi's Mansion: First-Person Optimized, which released at the tail-end of 2021, has just recently been updated with a little more content, on top of some polish and bug-fixes!

This hack now features the following:

-The option to not only roam the Lab freely, but also walk to the adjacent rooms and go up to the mansion on foot. (Though the Portrificationizer Room is off-limits.)

-Added dialogue to E. Gadd’s training tips, to help players adjust to the first-person viewpoint.

-Increased difficulty, due to stronger enemy attacks, and a more unforgiving Hidden Mansion, where heart pickups can't be found in furniture, among other things.

-An additional control option for people who struggle keeping the flashlight off during combat.

(More details are on the project page!)

If the initial version of FPO didn't have enough meat to it (or was just too hard to get into), hopefully this new update will make up for that, at least somewhat. The intention with this hack isn't to change Luigi's Mansion up TOO much, besides switching the camera mode and optimizing various things to work with the new perspective. But for people wanting a little more spice when replaying this GameCube launch title, this modification should now hopefully satisfy!  :)
