Description: 'Super Mario and the Grand Star' is a ROM hack of Super Mario 64 with a total of 116 stars to collect.

UPDATE 1.2 CHANGES

- Original Mario Cam has been restored/camera problems fixed (credit to Aglab2, originally fixed in v1.1 "Sober Edition")
- Updated coin and star models
- Removed excess surfaces/faces left over from development
- Fixed random messages which popped up occasionally and didn't make sense
- Other small changes

UPDATE 1.1 CHANGES

- Parallel Lakitu Cam added (+ improved Mario Cam)
- Replaced cap themes and final stage themes with new tracks (Voyage 1969 is now only used for star select)
- Removed lives system (in part because it's useless, in part to fix game over crash)
- Fixed game over crash and start up crash
- Significantly reduced lag in certain areas
- You can now exit course at any time
- 'Exit Course' will now take you directly outside the level entrance of the course you are in
- Improved mission naming system
- Other small quality of life updates

*Game still crashes on 'Save and Quit', but it should still save your progress regardless*

*Your save data from any previous version should transfer over to this version since the internal ROM names are identical*

STORY

Bowser and his minions have gone to war with the Mushroom Kingdom, though the tides of the war are constantly shifting.
To help shift the war in his direction, Bowser travels to the Moon in search of a prophesied ancient relic known as the Grand Star.
The situation goes from bad to worse when Bowser awakens Khonsu, one of the last surviving members of an alien civilization.
Khonsu seems to think the people of Earth killed his people many years ago, and vows to destroy the Earth to get revenge.
It's now up to Mario to save the world from Khonsu!

This game is set to take place after the events of Super Mario 64 and shortly before the events of Super Mario Sunshine.

I like the level design so far :p It's not super polished like lost dreams or anything, but it's fun and totally playable for me. Thanks for the hack!

I've played through Course 8 before dropping the game. I wasn't a fan of the level design the entire hack, and Course 8 was just the tipping point.

There was some memorable moments, but for the most part, I just couldn't gel with the hack.
