Background information:
So, what's this all about? "The Second Reality Project Reloaded" is not another new entry in the TSRP-series, it's a remake of the first part. The hack finally features a new overworld (people requested this for years) and of course, custom graphics and custom music. Besides that, not much have changed, most of the time the level design is the same as before. So, keep in mind that the original hack came out back in 2002, and back in the days you don't had the possibility to insert custom sprites, dozens of ASM-hacks and so on. So please don't expect anything groundbreaking here, it's still the same thing as it was before: a hack which is about level design and nothing else. But with that said, chances are if you enjoyed the original hack, you will love the remake for sure!

Storyline:
Bowser is back again, more powerful than times ago:
He found a power source which let him rebuilt his Airship Fleet. Soon he plans on attacking the Mushroom Kingdom one time more! It's up to Mario to stop him!

This is the one romhack I'd keep coming back to, now more than ever since it works on actual hardware.
quickdraw86 Link
This is a pretty good hack, but cheap enemy placements and a few really long and unforgiving levels with too few checkpoints make this 4/5.
Steampunkgamer256 Link
Does anyone know how to convert the bps file to an ips, im new here :P
madman Link
Completely agree with Panther-T's review of this hack: good, but with some issues. Overall worth playing.

YES! This is the bee's knees XD

Difficulty changed from Normal to Very Hard on account of the extremely long and unforgiving levels towards the end of the hack.

This has more checkpoints and powerups than the original Second Reality Project, and is the easier of the two.
Panther-T Link
Good hack, but is plagued with a few major issues.

Some levels are extremely long and lack checkpoints, particularly in the 2nd half of the game. This is especially a problem with a lack of checkpoints before boss fights. Seriously, if you have a level with a 900 second timer, put more than one checkpoint... Makes it hard to not use savestates.

This is compounded with many blind jumps and cheap enemy placements, which made this otherwise great hack a frustrating experience.


Also, the final boss is a joke.

Awesome !

Nice... Tanks
crocodileman94 Link
Very good hack! Would give it a 8/10, but due to a significant amount of cheap enemy placement (e.g. the Mega Mole at the very end of Monty's Mansion), I'll give it a 7/10.
FuZa Link
So far it works on snes9x... Anyone having problems with their emulators?
PkmnTrainerElio Link
I wasn't a big fan of the 3D like sprites for enemies and power ups, but this game is great! I love it.
Hasuo Link
Amazing hack!!! :D
kiki79250 Link
good
kaitri Link
over the years i played and finished this hack 5 times (including todays finish) and the more often i play it the closer it gets from 4* to 3*, but it still stays at 4* for me.

quite a lot of parts are just
"run to the end of this giant room. get a springboard/pswitch/baby yoshi/something else, run all the way back. progress.

there are more negative things and a ton more positive things and this comment could go on forever. so to keep it short: its a great hack and i highly recommend it. but it has its flaws and boring parts.

the difficulty in my opinion is hard. a pretty well deserved hard.
Wieus96 Link
5/5 stars, this hack is amazing
Colines Link
I see. Well, nice job keeping the custom music data untouched even without possessing the MML files! =D

Yeah, checking the source, AMK seems to hook into the Main Loop, not really a bad place if you want your code running every frame, but too much operations there may lead to desasters x|

I never noticed the volume difference tbh.


You can notice it by turning down the volume, while vanilla songs will follow suit, the custom music's loudness gonna become apparent.
Colines Link
Whoever hacked into it, I gotta say: what a great job!

But like Daizo Dee Von stated, there are a few incongruencies. For instance, vanilla song tracks are quieter than the custom ones, which generates unbalanced sound atmosphere, not a big deal, but still.

Was it made on purpose to workaround the APU RAM overflow?

So far I played through 2 worlds in real hardware and higan, time gonna tell if I can spot more issues. Though these might be real bugs from the hack rom itself, not being particularly caused by consequence from the music fix.
erpster2 Link
ask Ice Man on whether or not FPI is still active.
at least this new version works okay in bsnes/higan and snes9x versions 1.52 and higher w/out crashing.
Final Theory Link
I thought FPI was working on a few more hacks. Is he still active?
Daizo Dee Von Link
Ya it is... or at least, it's in the most completed functional state with one or two things missing.

A2MT isn't yet finished though.

The Second Reality Project: Revolutions when
ASMagician Maks Link
For a comparsion, the original crashes the spc whenever a Yoshi Fireball or a Podoboo sound effect plays (probably anything to do with noise actually) and has other music issues (that you can't access without cheat codes/importing a save).

Also I forgot to edit out the fixme tag.
garbanzoguy Link
think this submission is to make it compatible with console, older version wasn't compatible
 Eevee Link
The hack was already accepted and is apparently a fix so that's not a removal reason. It all depends on whether or not the changes actually fix whatever's broken.

@Black60Dragon: This hack has broken custom music. Are you trying to play it in ZMZ, Snes9x or bsnes? Maybe the music is crashing in the room before the boss in Castle 1.
Black60Dragon From older version: The Second Reality Project Reloaded Link
This is my all time favorite ROM hack, but is this version broken or something??? The game crashes every single time I try to enter the boss door at Castle 1.
h.carrell From older version: The Second Reality Project Reloaded Link
i have my version it is called TSRPR v1.2 with minimalist status bar

I don't see a "fixme: (write bugs here)" in the description.
Oops, I can't correct the url texts.

I would love to fix the issue by changing the fireball sound to the SMW default and make the game playable again. I have no experience with modifying roms.

Tried to contact FPI thru email but got no response.

Is their anyone that could make a updated version of 1.2?


If contacting FPI doesn't help, try contacting his best friend Ice Man, who used AddMusicK on his Toad's World game to make it compatible with real SNES hardware.

Do NOT try to fix the custom music problem for him without FPI's permission!
SlimeKing64 From older version: The Second Reality Project Reloaded Link
I wanted to play this on the Retron5, but the game's sound breaks the game! So far i know thast fireballs and using a warp to the second reality breaks it, but there could be other things. Do any of you know a way to fix these glitches?

Playing it on snes9x confirms this.

I believe the "fireball" sound causes the game to crash.

Playing it on snes9x confirms this.

Odd, since the readme claims it's compatible with real hardware.
overworked_mushroom From older version: The Second Reality Project Reloaded Link
First of all I love this hack!! Thanks FPI

I wanted to note that I tried to play version 1.2 this on real hardware (I made a rom cart) and the the game crashes.

I believe the "fireball" sound causes the game to crash.

Ezel From older version: The Second Reality Project Reloaded Link
Well, as it has been re-uploaded, I'm going to put a review again to help some poeple. :P

TSRP was one of the first hacks I've ever played. Despite cutoff and other graphical issues, it focused on level design and only on it, it was a good hack, so I enjoyed the remake even more.

Level design: 9/10

Simplistic level design, because why not? Some levels were looking a bit similar to the original, but some of them had a different gimmick. I like the simple way of designing levels, some of them look really good with it. Some parts feel a little flat-ish, but it was 2002, well... hacking was pretty much new then.

Graphics: 9/10

Nice graphics, some redrawn sprites and blocks here and there. I don't care if they are overused or not, they fit. I like the graphics, even if most of them are ripped from other games. There are also some custom graphics. Nothing groundbreaking, but they are nice.

Music: 8,5/10

Catchy songs, I like them. They fit well in most of the levels, which is good. I've a feeling there could be more themes, but it's fine as it is. Anyway, good job. Most of them are custom, what's a good thing.

OW: 9/10

Nice OW, really nice. Well made paths and nice palettes that fit with the game's atmosphere. Some islands have small perspective errors, but that's minor.

Difficulty: 9/10

The original may be a little too hard, but this one is fine with the addition of mid-points and some small tweaks here and there. The later levels were quite challenging and they featured some nice gimmicks even without the knowledge of ASM. Most of the time I enjoyed it and the difficulty was fine.

ASM: --/--

Not going to rate there too much. The amount of ASM here is very little, a few blocks and a little amount of sprites. Not enough stuff to make a valid vote.

Plot: 7/10

Nothing groundbreaking, simple story. It's still better than "save the princess". Near the end in the Thirdspace there's also a little bit of plot, which shows why Zycloboo is going to plan in the sequel.

Replay value: 10/10

Very enjoyable hack. Despite the simplistic design in some levels, it works very well with some custom graphics and custom music. There are some secrets that allow you to explore the world a bit more. One of my favourite series.

Overall: 61,5/70 (87,85% - 9/10)

Great work, FPI!
