Paper Mario: The Plasma Star More Information

This hack is meant to turn Super Mario World into an installment that’s more like that of the Paper Mario series. It’s only a demo so far, but that’s only because there is clearly a lot of work being put into it. It’s going to have a lot of the works that make the Paper Mario series what it is – remarkably ambitious for a SNES hack.

What exactly are these works, you may wonder? Well, there will be NPCs to talk to, an engaging storyline, towns to visit, a sense of humor, and much more. Despite all this, this is still going to be a core Mario platformer. Turn-based battles aren’t implemented; you will instead still be traversing levels not unlike that of Mario World’s own.

It’s still going to be a while before it a full version is present. However, the demo is very worth checking out, if just to support the crew working on it. It’s sure to be a promising creation in the realm of ROM hacking.

Question : I have Downloaded The ROM Hack But What Do I Do Next?
Answer : Watch this video for instructions on what to do. When you download this hack the download will contain a .ips file (Not a ROM file), This .ips file is a patch which you need to apply to the original ROM in order to be able to play the hacked game. The easiest thing to do is copy the .ips file in to the same folder as the original ROM and make sure the .ips and .rom file have the same name, for example

  • Paper Mario: The Plasma Star.ips
  • Paper Mario: The Plasma Star.rom

Now launch your emulator and then open the ROM and you should be able to play the hack. If the hack does not load you will need to patch the ROM file with the IPS file.
