This is the first of the "Star Revenge" Series of SM64 hacks. This update was made to make the player have a better time, it includes a huge list of Quality of Life updates the original lacked like shortcut pipes, better camera, nicer coin missions, some updated textures and a whole lot of other stuff which is all listed in the Changelog.
This also includes a new star. Overall this hack back then was my first time experimenting with the (back then) newer bigger level sizes. It's not a perfect game, but there is enough stuff to have fun with in the 12 main courses and some of the side levels. The hack isn't too hard either, but it's recommended that you should have some sm64 experience before you go into any of the Star Revenges.
I am playing thbis right now, and I can say that this is a perfect alternative way to the original Super Mario 64.
Is hard even on the 1.2, but I have to admit that without this update, many things could not be possible for many players (me included): in particular...
The sub-level with the huge Luigi's face.
Anyway, I found some glitches but that's okay (but I have to reset the game only because I tried to open a door that I already know that's closed on the world map), I think that this hack is a masterpiece to get a love once agaiun for Mario 64 game^^ great work, BorDute, I want to play all Star Revenge series^^ hoping that you got a 9th, someday^^
