11: Note 
Hi everyone, this is the thread for my next hack along with Crystal Stars 64, Shining Stars 2.

Story: The Shining Stars stolen by Bowser in SS1 have now returned back to their place as the Grand Shining Star. Bowser, still wanting his lava bath, has found 121 more shining stars hidden in a faraway land known as  Shine Sanctuary. To protect from Mario collecting all of the stars, he builds a great mirror, and hides half of the shining stars in mirrored worlds. Mario needs to collect all of the stars and stop Bowser's plan, again.

This hack should have 121 stars, very new music, and some ASM hacking. I also plan on using new instruments (thanks to Megaman511again for the tutorial Big Grin)

Shining Stars 3: Sanctuary of the Star Comet (SM64 hack) coming 2016!

I had fun looking at the screenshots, they look pretty well made, especially that slide level. I haven't attempted a slide level yet but I can imagine it must have taken a lot of work and planning.
Gone for a while.

You would be surprised, it only took about 2.5 hours Big Grin

I'm gonna repost what i said on smwcentral here too, for consistency and stuff.

So far loving your demo, just got around to playing it (super busy lately)

so far just a few nit picks:

All of these are with course 3.
Spoiler :
it is way overly difficult in some small areas for a third course.
During the last mission, when you are coming to the last segment where you need to do the wall jump up the lava waterfall is very difficult. Not hitting the lava takes many tries, and usually results in making it up to the last platform with very little health which leads into the next issue.
The last triple jump is very precise to make, you should raise the platform your on the slightest bit, or lower the one your jumping too. Plus failing the jump lands you in lava most of the time, and you usually only have a small amount of health left, so you end up dying and redoing the whole painful lava waterfall segment again.
The last nit pick: the course forces you to take too many hits. You need to jump into the lava for a lot of red coins and the fake stars, which I personally do not like. You should add some small platforms and just make them tricky to get too, instead of outright forcing the player to lose 3 health every time.

Oh and the fry the followers star name is really unclear, I had no idea there was a giant bully at the top to kill.

....how did I not notice that?

Ah well it's not really noticeable while playing, plus I doubt anyone would really care Tongue

Lol, still kinda offensive to some people.

Yeah I guess, though I doubt unless people actively seek out an above shot view of the level they most likely won't notice it.
