Paper Mario 64 mods
« on: July 31, 2021, 06:21 PM »
Here are some hacks for Paper Mario 64, one of the few RPGs on the N64. You probably need an expansion pak to play each of these, and they might all not work on a real N64 (I'm at work so I can't test them).



Paper Mario 64 - Black Pit:

Paper Mario: 20th Anniversary Edition

Paper Mario hard mode and more enemy HP. This is the original game, but made much harder, for people who love the game but have played it so often that they now find the game too easy.

Paper Mario: Master Quest. This mod adds/changes various things, and comes in two skill levels. This is the description from the website:

Paper Mario: Master Quest is a mod made for "Paper Mario" on the N64. It revamps old content and adds plenty of new as well.

Often considered "The Dark Souls of Paper Mario", the mod is incredibly difficult. It was designed with elite challenge runners in mind, and unless you have extensive knowledge of Paper Mario, you may struggle with much of the content. For those players we offer Paper Mario: Master Quest Jr which has all of the content the original has, with a much more reasonable difficulty curve. If you want to stream the mod, starting with Jr. is recommended.

Some of the new content includes:

50+ new maps, including a brand new dungeon!
A fully functional Pit of 100 Trials.
Boss refights for all major bosses.
60+ new enemies, ranging from recolors to fully custom bosses.
Heavy changes to enemy AI, and new battle mechanics not found in the vanilla game.
A number of map changes to keep some areas feeling fresh, and keep the player on their toes.
Item and Badge rebalancing, some more obscure tools are now viable.
New badges and partner attacks.

There are at least three more mods that I can't find downloads for. Paper Bowser (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtPaU-psrMA), and Paper Mario: Starry Woods (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5ucekbfe-s), and Paper Mario: Star Matrix.  Hopefully none of these have been abandoned by their authors.






Finally, there is the very promising Paper Mario: Wish Upon Abyss. This mod is still a work in progress, so no downloads yet, but a demo is available to a select few people (not me, so don't ask!) :

Paper Bowser is actually still coming; it's now being developed under the name "Bowser's Dark Story", and you can download the prologue demo patch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsJgucFsU8A

I did some more digging. It looks like Starry Woods is actually part of Wish Upon Abyss, while Star Matrix has unfortunately been cancelled.
