Just a few days ago, possibly one of the greatest videogame mods of all time was released.
This is a mod for Super Mario 64, which when played on an emulator, allows you to connect to a server someone has hosted and play with many (and I mean MANY) other players.
Unlike most other multiplayer mods for games like SM64, everyone has their own seperate client and emulation, so there’s no syncing issues, and you each have your own camera/perspective. This also means that people can be in different areas of the game at the same time.
There are a decent few different characters to play as, with different postives and negatives for each of them. The creator plans to add more features, and they want to create custom maps specifically for multiplayer too.
Speaking of custom maps, it is possible to use this mod with quite a few other ROM hacks, which overhaul the game. It may take some fiddling and questioning around though.
There’s a bunch of Nintendo fans and non-Nintendo fans on Kaza that I think would have a blast playing this with us, I know a decent amount that are interested already!
If you’re in the discord, just yell at people and we can get a game going.
Let’s organise something maybe and play it sometime!
