Last call for icons+backgrounds

Just a reminder that today is the last day for sending in your entries to the icon competition. I'll be making the shortlist sometime tomorrow morning, so provided you get your entry to 12pm (that's noon - GMT!) on Saturday it will probably be included.

Once I've made a shortlist of what I feel are the 10 best submissions, I'll post them up here so that people can give their thoughts, before I pick a final winner on Monday.

Why don't you give a statement fpr the extended Super Mario 64 ROM?

This ROM runs faster and has custom Levels-.-

Yoshi I've heard you talk about this ROM, anyway you can direct me to it so I can test it for StrmnNrmn. If it has all the same levels as the regular ROM but runs faster that would be something to have, but if it doesn't have the same levels it's pointless. StrmnNrmn wants the regular Super Mario ROM to work because that's the original game, if it has the original game that it could be useful. I don't see what you want him to say though, if it runs faster it's probably just full speed then, what's there to say? Anyway yeah good to see the icons are going to be here tomorrow, can't wait to see what we have to pick from.

Morgan, the extended rom is a larger (in file size) version of Super Mario 64 (24 mb in size). Which basically is a decompressed version of the game and runs significantly faster and allows editing of the game (optional). You can look up toads tool for details and download to extend your own copy of the rom. This extended rom which plays exactly the same but is faster works in project64 and many other emus except daedalus psp currently does not load it.

I hope to see your favorite 10! I'm curious to see em. I'm using my custom theme for Daedalus on my PSP. It looks nice when the BG pops up after the icon. ^^

I know about Toad's tool for editing levels and such, question though how much faster is it then the regular ROM in other emulators? Is the ROM choppier when it's played or is it still smooth and such, like the original rom. If this thing does run faster then the regular ROM then I think it would be useful for StrmnNrmn to look into why it won't load. Although it is sort of a gimic and StrmnNrmn should focus on increasing his emulators' speed then rather using faster ROMS, we'll see what he thinks.

How do I add custom themes to an eboot?Sorry I'm really stupid.

Morgan said...

Try looking up PSPBrew, that's an easy program to use.

On project64 I get a speedUp of 10fps through this ROM, so why don't have a look on it?
And as you can see in my youtube videos, the Levels are all customized by me:
