- What does this mean?
That everything you found in the original MaternalBound can also be found here, but with a much more polished detail and also with a ton of Quality of Life improvements made to it. The whole source code for the project is available as well! Be sure to check out the GitHub page for the project, alongside its release page for the patches, and more detailed info about the hack:
So… What changes can you expect out of MaternalBound Redux in addition to the ones found in the original MaternalBound?
The changelog for this project is REALLY extensive, so it is suggested to go over the GitHub page for the project to read the main list of changes, since there are a ton of them, even under the hood.
Grab the .zip file and patch it to a 4MB expanded ROM of EarthBound (.ips), or use the EarthBound Patcher to patch the hack into a clean 3MB EarthBound ROM (.ebp), or by using the same .ebp patch and 3MB ROM with Romhacking’s Online ROM Patcher. The base ROM (3MB) can be expanded either by using CoilSnake or Lunar Expand
If you want to use the hack with MSU-1, grab the PCM pack released alongside this hack from the Zeldix page at the beginning of this page, or from the following link: https://app.box.com/s/fkmjx61w4m7xom1kmir5zk7xv6jx9u8f
Simply rename your ROM to “eb_msu1.smc” and place it in the same folder as all the .pcm/.msu files. You need to use Snes9x v1.54 or above in order for the MSU-1 hack to work.
