@suppermariobroth You guys excited about the New Paper Mario coming out? No, silly! Not Paper Mario: Color Splash! The fan-made HD re-texture project of Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64 by Nelde!
“New Paper Mario is an unofficial retexture project for the original Paper Mario game for the Nintendo 64. This means that I’m taking every texture from the original game, enhancing them using new textures I create in illustrator and Photoshop, and loading them back into the game using an emulator.”
Check out @newpapermario on Tumblr and Nelde on DeviantART and give them your support! #newpapermario
As you might have guessed, I have decided to port my New Paper Mario texture pack onto the Dolphin emulator. (Paper Mario on a dolphin, get it?) I have thought about this for quite a long time but now I have decided that Dolphin is better suited for the task than N64 emulators. Dolphin still does have some problems, but at least it is still actively being developed.
So, what does this mean? -Well, unfortunately it means a lot of work since I have to rename practically every texture for it to work with Dolphin. -However, it also means that once I’m again at the same state of texturing, it will go much faster. -And it also means that I now have more motivation than ever, now that it’s actually possible for me to finish the pack.
Now… it would be great if some people would like to help me. This time, it’s mainly about playing through the game on Dolphin and dumping and sorting all the textures so I can just focus on retexturing. So, if you have any experience with Dolphin and how it handles high-res texture packs and would like to help me, send me an email at: npm at nelde dot ch (preferably with the email address that is connected to Dropbox) and I will add you to a Dropbox folder where you can contribute. I appreciate your help, but please only write if you have some experience. Thanks!
