Hey guys, I just discovered some crazy awesome hacks of Nintendo DS games. For instance, there is a group remaking classic Mario levels (SMB, Lost Levels, SMB3, and SMW)in New Super Mario Bros! Even putting in remixes to the songs. It's nothing completely special, but I'm sure the game would be interesting to play with the new items NSMB added.
They call it New Super Mario Bros 3. Go to 14:30 for some REAL awesomeness.
This one called NSMB: Deluxe is a complete remake of Super Mario Bros and TLL.
And finally, here's one that adds Metroid and Castlevania levels.
Anyone know anymore cool DS rom hacks? I know there are also a lot for Pokemon, but none look too impressive.

DS hacks are rather new to me, since I'm too used to watching videos of Wii hacks instead. Custom New SMB Wii levels, insane Mario Galaxy 2 levels, Mario Kart Wii custom tracks, et cetera. I'm under the impression that Wii is easier to hack than DS.
The first video in your first post is crazily great. The Metroid part reminds me of this SMB1 hack called Extra Mario Bros.

What a coincidence, I 'discovered' the Star Road hack 2 days ago while randomly browsing the tubes (I'm not really up to date when it comes to mods ). I really love what they did with it, creative level themes and the new HUB world. I haven't tried it yet tho, SM64 without joystick controller doesn't feel right to me. Plus previous N64 emulators I tried were complete ass.
If you could get this one to run on an actual DS however...

As far as emulating just Mario 64 itself goes, Project64 is good enough for the job. According to the descriptions of these vids, they can run on flashcarts, if that's your thing.
I like how Mario 64 DS itself gets improved, not just having the levels changed. I don't think I'll look forward to this one; there are already a bunch of Mario 64 hacks that I'm missing, including SM64 Green Stars and Mario's Nightmare 64.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
