I am working on an improvement hack for Yoshi's Island, the focus will be removing/replacing annoying sounds, stop Mario crying, improve graphics, bugfixes etc. I would like community feedback and input to further improve the game. Suggestions more than welcome:
*Mario will no longer cry and has graphics have been replaced while inside a bubble.
*Alarm sound (SFXx58) now replaced with lesser alarm (SFXx57) as it is less irritating.
*Red Coins are now properly red. -Thank you Doggycharly!
*All mouse sound effects (SFXx75) replaced with chirp sound (SFXx5A) which is very similar sounding but less ear-piercing.
*Ice no longer screeches.
*Winding sound effects of heavy objects on a chain no longer screech (SFXx5A) and replaced with correct winding sound (SFXx1B)
*Winding “frying pan dong” sound (SFXx2F) removed.
I will also add the following patch:
* Yoshi's Island graphics enhanced https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=viewthread&t=87674
*Always Start & Select: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=13210
To be completed:
*Use items in bosses (will make 100% runs easier, but might cause bugs).
Is there any more that should be added?
Mario no longer cries and sits calmly in the bubble.
If anyone wants to try current progress I put it up on romhacking.net
