Alright, I'm trying to make a hack and I wanted the only character for at least the start of the game to be Mario because my Wing Cap stage (Which is very early in game and is virtually impossible to miss) takes advantage of Mario's balloon ability to get all of the red coins and I want the player to be able to do it on their first go in the level without having to exit and come back as Mario. So is this possible?

Other question, in multiplayer boxes drop the feather for all characters. Can I incorporate this into my hack by fiddling with the parameters of either the red boxes or yellow boxes? I know you can make the red box only drop flowers.

You would need to use an ASM hack to change the starting character, probably patching the default save file created.

It would be easier to place a Mario hat for the player to pick up. The original does this with Koopa the Quick - Yoshi can use Mario's hat before he's unlocked.

For the red boxes, yes it's possible; you can just copy the parameters from the multiplayer levels from a box you know contains a feather.

*Facepalm* Should have thought of that earlier! xD

The only level with the feather to my knowledge is the multiplayer version of Sunshine Isles which I can't see in the editor.

It probably is there, it would be under a different Star. Star 1 is the normal version the player sees playing the main game but one of the other Stars will be the multiplayer version.

I know I'm bumping an old thread, but for future references sake, I must post!

An easier thing to do would be to use the AR code in which you can play as any character by pressing a certain combination of buttons.

Ex: Hold L+R+DOWN to Play as Mario

94000130 000000df
22096121 00000002
d0000000 00000000

In this case, you would hold L+R+DOWN as you first load your save game, the game would go through the cutscene as normal, but when the game starts, you will be Mario.

Once you do that, just save, and distribute the .sav file with your hack.

I'm aware that this thread is quite old but I was wondering if anyone else is interested in actually making vanilla sm64ds start off with Mario. It feels so off starting off as Yoshi.

I know about the ar code but that simply doesn't feel the same. I suppose you could remove the code for the L+R+DOWN buttons but that leads to an issue involving the character constantly changing to Mario and such.

It would be great if anyone could give me any info on this.

I've been looking around here for some hacking info and such because I'm very interested in modding this game. This is the type of hack I would greatly appreciate.

Thanks.
