Tip: Layer 3 backgrounds and tides disappear when you hit a message box, so plan your level around that. For example, you can add a sublevel without layer 3 at the start/midpoint, and include your message there.
Can someone help me with Paper Mario 64's flickering problem? It's very annoying to see everything dissapearing and just seeing the background. I tried 1964, but in the start, or in dark places, Mario, Princess, Magikoopa and Bowser are just shadows instead of being a bit darker. Nope, Glide64 doesn't solve it and neither does Direct64. Someone help me, please?
