Incompatible with version 1.1, among other small issues

Reviewed By: BlazeHeatnix on 27 May 2019

I have to question the logic of making this hack incompatible with version 1.1. With SML2, it wasn’t a big deal, considering that game’s revisions didn’t really change anything. But SML1 has different, arguably better music in version 1.1, so why not use that as a base?

Other than that, while this is indeed an excellent hack and a vast improvement over the outdated Colorizer edits, I have to echo other reviewer complaints, and I’m hoping that toruzz can address them:

1) Allow compatibility with version 1.1. 2) Fix Mario’s sprite to be less awkward-looking. 3) Change some colors to match the official artwork. 4) Optimize the framerate to where it’s as smooth as SML2DX was.

Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
