Recent Updates

    Added the following features: - All the shine sprite models have been tinted green, including the ones on the episode select menus and the monument one in Delfino Plaza. - The Shadow Mario wanted poster in Delfino Airstrip has been changed to a wanted poster of Shadow Luigi. - Various shine sprite images have been tinted green. Updated the list of things it still needs by adding these previously unmentioned problems: - The FLUDD nozzles don't always render correctly. - The Luigi model lacks many of the texture-altering features of the original Mario model, such as visibly getting dirty from the goop or closing his eyes when he goes to sleep. - The level entry portals are still "M"s instead of "L"s. - The goop originally at Delfino Airstrip is still in the shape of a Mario head with an "M" above it instead of a Luigi head with an "L" above it. I also added in the description that people should explain how they created the new assets they make for this mod to me so I can more easily alter them if necessary. And I changed two of the pictures to show off the newly green tinted shine sprite models and textures.

Crystalis Screen Shake Fix

Hack of Crystalis


There’s a timing bug that happens on certain emulators on certain ROMs in certain scenarios that causes the screen to “shake” whenever a text box is on screen. This patch contains a fix for both the US and JP versions of Crystalis/God Slayer.

Credit for original fix goes to Steve Hacks of Crystalis Randomizer fame.

This download contains three files:

  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (US).ips is for use with the US localized ROM “Crystalis”
  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (JP).ips is for use with the original JP version of “God Slayer - Sonata of the Distant Heavens”
  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (JP - English BPS Patched).ips is to be applied AFTER using Stardust Crusaders’ English Patch. They ended up expanding the ROM and moving A LOT of things around, and as a result the addresses used for the screen shake fix have been altered. This patch is compatible, while the (JP) one is not.


UPDATE: Version 1.0a addresses a game freeze issue and should run seamlessly on all versions now. It is safe to apply this version over your current version.
