Super Mario 64 Reduced Lag

Hack of Super Mario 64

Description:

After Super Mario 64 was finally decompiled back into its source code, it was discovered that Nintendo failed to use the O2 compression method when they compiled the game originally. This knowledge has existed for months, but now there’s a way for anyone to get the benefits of an O2 compressed Super Mario 64 with a simple patch rather than command line kung-fu in Unix.

This patch almost completely erases the lag in Super Mario 64, including the lag caused by the infamous Bowser sub, which now runs at nearly full speed even when the entire sub is in view.

  • Works on native N64 hardware with an Everdrive
  • Download now includes patches for both the USA and Japanese versions of Super Mario 64.

Smoke Fix?

Reviewed By: Shift on 06 Dec 2020

Works great, but just wondering if in any future updates, it could incorporate the smoke cloud graphic fix from zoinknoise. Currently they seem to be incompatible, and I hope that since they come from the same O2 decompiling efforts and the smoke just needs one line of code changed, they could both be added to the same patch.
