It's not possible to retexture "?" boxes.
You can just modify the "?" inside :down:

Wow! Came from nowhere and is already nearly done and is looking incredible.
I really wonder, how many work it was to replace all the different animations of the drivers.
I only see one "problem": due to the smaller size of the SNES characters, it's sometimes hard to estimate how to hit other characters with the stars and to see when they're small because of the lightning.

Indeed, it is one of the disadvantages of the pack, but it was too difficult and too long to combine each time the two textures of the kart.

Sorry, forget to ask in my previous post: did you test this pack with 1964video and Glide64? Since Rice is kinda outdated and had some serious bugs.
And is this pack only compatible to the (E) version? Because the (E) version was slowed down compared to the (U) release.

BFrancois

I have just tested, the pack seems to work with (U) release :)

1964VideoR67 is the plugin that offers the best display with my pack.
I have just a few bugs in the menus :

Glide64 doesn't work very well with my videocard/computer, so i haven't tested.

why don't you use Mr.Wolna scaleup 1.1 and grow the karts up by 4x or so?

BFrancois

I can't enlarge karts.
If karts are too big, the bottom of textures/karts is missing in the game...

Hello, mr. negative! It's because we can, and it's fun! It is to change the style of the whole game to fit something else, in this case Mario Kart for the SNES. It creates a whole new experience. Those who have played the original before, gets to experience the game all over again, in a way. And those who played the SNES title, will surely enjoy this. I think it looks great, and i think i will give it a try.

Please excuse me if i don't make sense, i am VERY tired. And it's 08.08 in the morning. And i have to stay up all day. Damn..

Hello !

I have decided to replace Koopa by Wario.
About 1500 files have been replaced (karts, menus, hud, etc. ...).

I gotta agree, this is a downgrade. I was glad to see someone working on this game but now that I see what is being done I'd rather not use this. :/

Thanks for taking the time to attempt to make the game better, but I'll pass.

I don't think this is a downgrade because the game is more beautiful than the original (look at the screens on the first page).
However, I can understand that some people don't like the style.

You should stay with koopa (when you name it a super mario kart pack) or you take both in the pack and the user take the one he wants

BFrancois
June 12th, 2011, 13:46
Yes, I could upload 2 packs : Wario / Koopa ;)

The problems with Koopa are :
- I can't remove/replace the voices of Wario. It's annoying...
- We must patch the game to replace Wario by Koopa (otherwise "Wario" will appear in the race results and lap records)

Thatīs not so important but were nice :)
Important is the look of a pack imo

Also It has been a while since I was active here and haven't visited your website before.

www.emulation64.fr has been a great resource for me, thank you for all that you do.

dude and if you just make fit the size of the snes characters with the originals to keep the proportions? i would love to play this, but really the characters are to small, and thats not just a matter of estetics, it could affect playablity.

Cheers

I think size of Snes characters doesn't affect very much playability.
You'll see it when the pack will be released ;)

It seems that the textures aren't pixelated enough, you should scale them 16, or even 8 pixels. That would be sooooo legit ^^
