      I really enjoyed this video!
      I also enjoyed the rendering code optimization video, and I haven't watched the bird video yet, but I think I'm going to like that one as well!

    Do you have any plans to release your adjustments to the engine after the project is finished? It sounds like it could very beneficial to the romhacking community as a whole, almost like a modding framework of sorts to allow people to make more complex levels and mechanics without impacting performance!

      he will probably have some legal troubles for sharing modified code of a licenced software

      PREMiERE PARER 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      No what are you even taking about?? My uncle works at Nintendo and does Mma he could beat you up

    • wargex
      wargex 3 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Ski wattentotten Oh hey if you found it interesting you should check out Thomas Game Doc's video "Nintendo STOLE this game..." that they made on the subject, it's really good and well made. Also you're good you seemed like you were in good faith or I would've dismissed your comment to begin with. How ever that's not fully true either, it's not wrong, but that also ignores the many different forms of public licensed works. Like open source emulators are a good example, they're generally licensed against commercial use of the product. But I get what you're saying, I just know IP doesn't stop there and there's more to it. I'm not a lawyer or legal expert, but I can point to times where the base of my understandings was legally used.

    • Ski wattentotten
      Ski wattentotten 3 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @wargex interesting note on dk arcade. I didn't read the other comment replies you're referring to, but the ability to profit from commercial sale is the primary reason to safeguard IP... Wasn't trying to imply that you said it or meant it

    • wargex
      wargex 3 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Ski wattentotten Oh I don't think he has that right, I never said or implied that he does whatsoever, other people just assumed that for me. I just think regardless it doesn't make him a narcissist to want to mod and trying to hold it away from public use so others can continue to work on the foundation he's laid out is literally antithetical to the spirit of modding. It's ridiculous, if that's the way people feel about modding then why tf are they even here?
      People wanna act like I'm saying he can legally release the game because he modified the code are stupid and just making bs up. Watch Nintendo try to illegally re-release there game with his code without legal agreements in place between them. He wrote the code he has a copyright on the codes he's made. People are acting like its now Nintendos. Wrong, why did Mojang/Microsoft try to buy the rights to Optifine, a mod made for Minecraft? When apparently (to these morons) they can just have it? Why doesn't Nintendo just release the character mods other people have made, why doesn't that mean Nintendo just gets to own it if that were the case? Because that would be illegal for them to take, it's not their code it's not their ownership. Nintendo was sued for producing Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr arcade games because they only owned the assets, name, and characters, they were sued for 14 million because they didn't have a legal right to the code because they didn't write or own the code it ran on, every port of the game since has been ports of the NES version that they did write, not the arcade, except for the case the original arcade version made it to Donkey Kong 64.
      If these people want to make up bs I didn't say or don't understand sarcasm and clear devil's advocacy, that's on them. They're making up dumb arguments to things I never said or clearly do not believe. Regardless if people just don't understand Kaze owns the code he has written, that's on them.
      Kaze just writes the code, he can't release the roms, he can only release his code to be applied to a rom, that's it. That's the only reason he can do what he does.

    You could full on remake the original at this rate. Imagine the original game with all those improvents and new levels, like a mash between SM64 and SM64DS!

      @PeacefulSkies SM64plus is not as impressive as where this man is taking us. Kaze is going to give us the sonic mania experience the world has been craving since 1996.

    Team Blue Toad 9 หลายเดือนก่อน +178

    At this point this doesn't even look like a SM64 rom hack anymore due to how beautiful it looks! Seriously, if you can make wonderful stuff like this, i wonder why Nintendo couldn't do the same.

    • Warion Musk

    • ProjectAlpha Animations
      ProjectAlpha Animations 7 หลายเดือนก่อน +5

      The tools we have now are so much more powerful and user-friendly.
      While Kaze is insanely talented, he has a base to work off of as well, a base created by Nintendo itself who had no prior base to work off of.
      Nintendo flew blind with computers that took hours to render a 360p quality image, we’re much more well off nowadays in that regard!

    No but seriously, I loved the demo skybox, this one looks bland in my opinion but keep up the awesome work.

    • Albaer
      Albaer 8 หลายเดือนก่อน +6

      Definitely agree about the old one. Gave the level a cosy feel, similar to Click Clock Woods in Banjo Kazooie. Made it feel like you were in a real place as opposed to a floating island in a featureless sky.

    • Lilaa3

      that's fair. It is a pretty nice skybox. i do prefer the new colors and obviously the performance gain though.

    Just so you know Kaze, I absolutely love when you go into specifics with code optimization! As a beginner learner, I love seeing all that you can do to optimize the source code of SM64. So don't shy away from it! I've watched your recent code optimization vid 3 times already

  • Thirteen1355

  • Leon Babić

    I would still recommend an option for a locked 30fps framerate to be added for real N64 hardware. While it's great to see what you have done to improve the overall feel of the unlocked framerate on N64, I think many people would still prefer to have the option for a perfectly steady 30.

    God, imagine what Nintendo could put out if they had people like this on the team for the SM64 re-release
    Like, imagine a Workshop Page like on Steam, where people could make mods for ROMs, and then there's an avenue for people where they wouldn't get Take down notices
    If only Nintendo were nicer to modders

  • VegetaReviews69
    VegetaReviews69 9 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

    0:52 i do prefer the demo sky box here, the newer one feels kinda empty. it's probably just personal preference because i like the forest theme and being surrounded by trees. other than that tho that's a huge improvement 👌👌

    Aw man, I was in love with the original Bunny Brushwoods theme, I even thought it was custom at the time. Even though I do prefer custom music, I really hope the new theme manages to catch that excitement and energy of the original! I feel like it was perfect for an energetic and visually stunning first level.

  • xozzy830x
    xozzy830x 7 หลายเดือนก่อน

    This is so cool! Amazing work! I see your passion in this project and I believe you have much more potential in the programming scene. Optimizing the N64’s specs opens up the opportunities for more homebrew games and advancements with current games on the platform. It’s awesome that you are pushing the console over its limits by optimization!
    Here’s an idea: I think you should look into consoles with hidden potential ready to be unlocked like the PS3 and Sega Saturn. They are complex systems which game companies struggle to optimize games for. However I believe they have hidden potential to bring out the best when utilizing its specs. Multi platform games like Tomb raider on the Saturn and Bayonetta on PS3 could be optimized to work better then their counterparts: Bayonetta on Xbox 360 and Tomb Raider on PlayStation. It’s exciting to think about!
    I’ve read that a fully optimized PS3 (using all of its cores properly) has the potential to outperform the PS4! It’s so cool to think of this being a reality. If this is true, I can only imagine what is possible in terms of unique and innovative games brought to life on these systems!

    Can't wait to play this, dude!! I'm sure you've been asked this a lot, but what are your thoughts on mod development with the PC port? Obviously your current projects are way too far along to restart from scratch, but would future projects in the PC port be possible?

      Of course it's possible, but i don't see a reason to use the PC port. If i did go for a "PC exclusive" game, I'd simply port the SM64 code to unity or unreal and have a much much better engine than the PC port could ever hope to be.
