    From Where???

    The original Super Mario 64 had plans to include a 2-player mode. Until now, the idea of playing through this game with a second player remained a dream. Skelux, who has also released a mod entitled "Super Mario Star Road", released this 2-player mod just a few days ago. The mod allows 2-players to cooperatively venture through the entire game from start to finish. The download below includes everything you need to patch your ROM. The required ROM is the original Super Mario 64 (U) ROM. This patch is only version 1.0, which means bugs and/or compatibility issues may be present.

    Someone should switch P2 to Luigi using Toad's Tool or other modification.

    This is a really fun idea and for a first release nicely done. However I hope that in the future that some bugs are ironed out / enhancements are made since for example player 2 has a great advantage in boss battles, since bosses and enemies don't even recognize him and go after player 1 instead, even if player 2 stands right infront of the enemy. Also if the two players are too far apart in some levels, some objects stay invisible for the slower player but still can hurt him. But overall, this is really awesome and something I always wished for.

    I can clearly see why they didn't include this in original game. Think about playing this original 240p with some small CRT and player choose to go entirely differend ways :D
    But still why some dude with red-black clothes and not Luigi? Is there actually any benefit of using 2 players e.g. bosses modified to require 2 players?

    Look at the Flag...
    Wonder if it works on real hardware (99% chances it doesn't), guess I'll try this week end.

    Wow, that's really cool. But it's unlike Nintendo to just leave a feature like that in the game.. Normally they'd try to remove it and it would pop-up somewhere glitched up. :rolleyes:

    I just did it with someone over Kaillera and it worked remarkably well. ;) Shoot me a PM or give me a shout on IRC if you'd like to play sometime or have me explain it to you.
