ROM Hacks: Super Mario 64: The Missing Stars Released!
« on: May 06, 2009, 12:34:16 pm »

Update By: messiaen

This is the first ever "complete" hack of Mario 64, featuring brand new levels and missions. The game has been changed in many aspects, offering a fresh gameplay experience.

Main Features:

  • 38 stars in about 10 levels
  • A Day/night cycle replacing (most) act selectors
  • Choose to play as Mario or Luigi
  • Modified enemies, objects and bosses (too many to list!)
  • Custom music, including one original song (the town "night" music)
  • A new final boss fight which involves a new Mario powerup


There are also many ‘behind the scene’ modifications that make make this hack work: extended memory support, a new collision pointer system (lookup tables instead of hardcoded pointers), modified script commands and a bunch of other hacks.

Some hacks used in this game were written straight in C using a GCC compiler targeting MIPS and a set of header files/linker scripts to allow interaction with existing game code and functions. Source code for most modifications will also be released soon.

Bug report: On DaedalusX64, you can play the entire game except that the game freezes if you go anywhere near the small goomba that is on the roof of the house in the main area during the daytime. You can run around on the roof at night, but something about the daytime causes the game to freeze, forcing you to hard reboot your PSP.

Other than that, this game is really fun - like a true sequel to the original Mario 64!

There is a possible fix here. Haven't had a chance to test yet (later edit: it don't work)

Pretty sucky that such a cool game can't be played all the way through
