With the release of my texture hacking tutorial, I only find it fair if I show you guys the first three Mario Sports Mix texture hacks that I’ve kept in storage for all of these months. After all, there has to be some truth to the story.
The image above is a screenshot of the character select screen, with two of my first three texture hacks displayed. You’ll also notice that some of the CSS icons have been modified. Refer to the tutorial for more info.
I have been pretty disturbed that the Red Yoshi was restricted to being a non-playable helper in Dodgeball. However, this texture hack fixes that problem up. Of course, this Red Yoshi is brighter than the normal one, so in a way, it helps to let people know which Red Yoshi is which. In other words, the brighter colored Red Yoshi is the playable one.
To finish up, this hack replaces Pink Yoshi.
The Blue Yoshi hack that I did up for New Super Mario Bros. Wii gets a chance to pop up again. Often I find it odd how the real Blue Yoshi is more purple in color, but at least this Blue Yoshi is actually blue.
This hack replaces Light Blue Yoshi.
Seeing as the Black Mage has a Magic Red outfit, I merely thought about if the White Mage had a Magic Red outfit too. This texture hack is pretty much what I came up with.
Now, the White Mage does have two outfits, which is her default outfit, and her Pure White outfit. However, the models that they use are different from each other. Since I was using the default outfit as a base, this hack replaces the White Mage’s default outfit.
The downloads above will contain the modified .mdl files, which are placed in their proper folder, along with two BRRES files, and a TPL file. Refer to the text documents to know how to use the BRRES and TPL files.
A user made a statement that the hacks cause the game to crash in Hockey. The hacks have been tested on the NTSC-U version of the game without any flaws. I also noticed that there’s nothing different about the PAL ISO files, so the hacks should easily be region friendly.
