Hey guys! I was just wondering... I never actually saw a hack of SSB64. Maybe it's impossible because of the data being compressed. (Idk if it is)
Or maybe it's just that nobody has tried it yet. I saw people doing it but with gameshark codes only... Also, I never saw a true model import in this game...
Anyways, if someone wants to work with me, (Hello xDaniel :P) I wanted to start with changing a character's model and maybe, maybe if it goes far, I wanted an interface for it. (Hello xDaniel :P).

So, anyways, thx for helping! :wub:

Idk what compression has to do with anything. You can decompress any ROM using GZRT. And GZRT also allows you to RIP files from ROMs (even if they don't have a file table.), and you can even re-import them (over the same file that you ripped), so long as its ABSOLUTELY NO BIGGER THAN THE ORIGINAL FILE.

Well, since SSBB hacking is very flexible and quite noob-friendly with most of the tools, there's not much interest for SSB64 modding. I guess that's pretty logical, though.

Ok, well I don't mind to be the first to hack SSB64. :P
But the problem is that is my child's dream. So... :)

I can tell you now, that mod will NOT even make it to release.

$10,768 for a (somewhat crappy) mod of SB64.
Looking at the comments, apparently the "new" characters are literally just palette swaps. I understand that it is technically a "new" character, but it's still just a skin.

You'd probably have an easier time hacking Brawl to look like SSB64 and working from there. If I recall correctly at one point Project M had an N64 mode, so that may be a good place to start.

Edit:
Although this is unreleased, this is real gameplay and shows how close you can get it with minimal effort:

If you were dedicated, you could get the Menu UI and Physics spot-on as well.
