> From what I've heard, it still worked like shit.
I owned it, got 150 stars on it several times. And let me tell you, I tried the thumb strap control. I even forced myself to play with it. And it really works like absolute shit.

It's supposed to work like this: you move by holding the stylus/thumb strap down on a screen; a target-like circle appears under the point where you touch, and you can move the stylus in some direction go in that direction. The further you move it from the center, the faster you run.

So hey, sounds like an on-screen analog, right? Then what's the caveat? The caveat is, this piece of shit repositions itself every time you lift the stylus off. This makes it extremely disorienting and it's just hard to keep track of, even more so when you have no feedback like from a solid plastic stick under your thumb. In result, you pretty much HAVE to look at that circle just to walk in the right direction, or otherwise you'll soon find yourself making loops around the same spot.

It's as atrocious as riding a reverse steering bike. You can't even concentrate on the action because you have to pay attention to that target. Even if you somehow manage to look at two screens at the same time, it's still extremely distracting. I couldn't even make basic moves like triple jump and such properly because of it.

And the worst thing about it? You'll soon realize that you play vastly better on a D-pad. In all of SM64DS, I have never, EVER had any need for the touch control. It's simply worse in every case you can imagine in the game. D-pad It's not perfect, maybe. But once I got used to it, it felt surprisingly comfortable. Not as smooth or intuitive as on N64, but still fine.

As for the thumb strap, in general it never clicked with me, because your thumb always blocks the view on an already tiny screen. And yes, it blocks half of the target circle in SM64. It's also very inaccurate because it's rounded.

>> No.3734305

There was a lot of mysticism lost in the DS version. Every level had a map on the lower screen and it just made the worlds seem so much smaller because of it. Then there's the inclusion of Wario, Luigi, and Yoshi. The feeling of total isolation made Mario's journey feel more dire, and having the others stripped that away entirely. And lastly, the biggest issue I have is the art change. I understand the modernization, but things like Jolly Rodger Bay losing the mist in the skyband the waters losing their murkyness instantly made the level 10x as small to me.

This is from a guy who beat the DS version twice over and just recently got the original again for Xmas. As outdated as the graphics are, the direction the art was headed in the original game really shouldn't have been sacrificed in the update.

That was RAMs fault. DS had far better methods of using the same amount of ram. So larger more colorful textures could exist. Even with the RAM expansion to 8megs, the ds would still be able to cram more textures into the 4megs it had.

>Was the DS just more powerful?
The answer is no. If you do a technical breakdown of the two Mario 64 versions with tools you'll find the N64 version uses more polygons. Obviously the 64 version also had texture filtering and anti-aliasing, while the DS version did not.

The thing is that in the 8 years between the two releases, Nintendo got way better at developing 3D games. They could model a more "detailed" Mario model by using fewer polygons.

>> No.3736057

Because while the blurry look was cool in 1996, it didn't age well. PS1 graphics generally held up better - that is, if you ignore the waggly polygons. The DS is the best of both worlds.

That's not to say texture filtering is bad - it looks fine when the textures are relatively large. But textures on the N64 and DS were just too low resolution for it to look like anything other than a muddled mess. Same way how when you emulate an NES game and upscale it with bilinear filtering it looks like garbage, but when you're playing more recent games with high-resolution detailed art, filtering can look great.

>> No.3736060

>that is, if you ignore the waggly polygons
Which are hard to ignore when they're very noticeable on both CRTs and HD TVs.

the N64's anti-aliasing is much more tolerable (and even welcome) on CRTs.

>> No.3736071

>and also fresh ideas

>> No.3736078

If you disable the waggle in an emulator, you can definitely see how much better the nearest-neighbor filtering looks.

Point was, the DS look is just the PS1 with good polygon stability, and it holds up a lot better than the typical N64 game.

>> No.3736079

Yeah it's still a Mario game alright, but I thought it looked less like a rehash of ideas/enviroments/enemies than the "New SMB" and "3D Land/World" games.
Final boss is still Bowser (or so it seems) and there's a few classic baddies like hammer bros, but I've seen more new enemies... in fact I don't think I've seen a single goomba on that trailer, they can't be absent though.

In terms of pure numbers, the N64 is better at crunching polygons than the NDS.
The NDS has a hard limit of 2048 polygons per frame, or 122880 per second at 60fps.
The N64 can supposedly do 160,000 with all hardware features enabled, perhaps more with specialised microcode.

>Could you back that claim up?
The site that did the comparison doesn't seem to exist anymore, but it's pretty easy to verify if you extract the models for both systems.

Basically the Mario model in Mario 64 (and quite a lot of enemies) use a LOT of unnecessary extra polygons, but you can pretty much chalk that down to inexperience with 3D at the time.

>That's not to say texture filtering is bad - it looks fine when the textures are relatively large. But textures on the N64 and DS were just too low resolution for it to look like anything other than a muddled mess
No, this is pretty much rubbish. No matter the resolution, texture filtering will (almost) always look better in 3D. The only exception is where pixels will always align with the grid (e.g. 2D games or "vector-style" textures.

However, liking nearest-neighbor arbitarly-rotated "raster-style" textures is perfectly legitimate for nostalgia or novelty reasons. I know it gives people the kicks to see big pixels and go "woah I'm playing a fucking old game".

The problem is there are many instances where N64 games used lower-resolution textures than PS1, and that is where the muddiness comes from. Part of that is due to technical difficulties with programming the system, but part of that is simply that N64 had more "open-world" games where you have to display a larger number of textures simultaneously so each individual texture has to be lower-resolution.

Also N64 emulators can't replicate N64 texturing for shit. UV coordinates are usually wrong, and the filtering itself is fucked. Many N64 textures were pre-filtered with the expectation of being subject to a triangulated form of texture-filtering. When you expose them to the quad-filtering used in emulations, it distorts the textures making them even blurrier than the real console.

>> No.3736447

>No, this is pretty much rubbish. No matter the resolution, texture filtering will (almost) always look better in 3D

>Nah texture filtering makes low res would-be blocky textures even worse looking
You can check the image I posted above which shows two 64x64 textures. That's a pretty typical size for N64/PS1 games. As I said, there are instances where nearest neighbor will give better results but it's few and far between in 3D games.

The best you can hope for with filtering off is that the aliasing noise will be misinterpreted by the player as extra "detail" (of course that's wrong because in actual fact filtering is more "detailed" - it involves more reads of the source texture). Most of the time though, nearest-neighbor just looks shimmery and ugly.

nah, if I would have a guess it's because only has one pool of memory which each component has to take turns sharing so optimization is very important

if you just copy and paste PS1 code straight onto the N64 you'll get stalls because each component will be sitting idle waiting for its turn to use memory, also PS1-style optimizations like tessellation are pointless on the N64 and harmful to performance if not removed

That's pretty cool. Honestly I can't figure out why it took PSX emulation authors until recently to implement perspective correct rendering.

Of note, screen-space texturing looks awful on the N64 because designers didn't have to break their geometry into smaller parts to compensate for the fucked up perspective, they had perspective correct model-space texturing all along.

On the PSX, even simple geometry typically needed to be drawn with many polygons. That's why flat straight hallways looked zigzaged; huge polygons suffered bad distortion, but a collection of smaller ones suffered less overall distortion.

lol very, very few games, likely less than 10 in the tiny n64 library, would even be better than average on a PS or Saturn.

Did it now.
It looks... different. Fresher.

Also, this guy hacked N64 textures into the DS version and I can see why they changed Bob-omb Battlefield colors. Yoshi is hard to see against the original textures.

Let's talk about fucked-up remakes/ports/remasters besides Mario.

And now this cheap piece of crap will resurface again as Hyper Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

This is Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, a botched 7th gen Super Turbo "remaster" with shitty sprites done by Udon hacks, shovelware artists and helmed by some idiot player who somehow ended working for Capcom.

Even straight ripping off Capcom artist Edayan art for SF 2 Turbo Revival (GBA), they sucked so much at drawing that Capcom was forced to trash about 2500 animation frames and remake the remaster from scratch. And it still looked like crap.

Was it easy? How'd you do it?

>> No.3749530

Just renamed the DS textures to their N64 equivalents and threw it on the emulators high resolution folder. Pretty easy using project64 2.1.
I had to edit some, and the DS version has more textures than the original.

The textures came with a stage model that I downloaded at models-resource.

>> No.3751325

n64 looks like shit.

>> No.3751409

Painful to watch.

I appreciate that Udon is translating some Capcom artbooks, but the rest of the stuff they do: comics, fan art, etc, it's horrible. Even worse, it seems they are influencing Capcom Japan decisions, which my explain the horrible art Street Fighter games are having since Street Fighter 4.

>> No.3751567

the textures and models in the DS version were superior in an objective sense (although I dislike the washed-out look of the new textures) HOWEVER this is offset by the fact that the DS version has a much lower resolution, resulting in in things looking like shifting pixels as they move around.

conclusion: original is superior.

And that's not even getting into how horrible the control scheme for the DS version is. I can understand having to get by with a D-pad, but they required you to hold a button to run, despite the fact that you're going to be spending 99% of your time playing SM64 by running. And this just made many maneuvers tediously difficult. Tying Holding Y and also hitting the A button without also accidentally hitting X and/or B.

You could never get that fast in Mario 64 without destroying your controller though

>> No.3752432

Not true. I've been using the same n64 controller for a while now. Just grease up the bowl a bit and it'll last for like 3000 hours.

If that's not good enough, get a gamecube to n64 adapter or a hori mini pad.

Basically my exact thoughts on it. Would be cool if someone could mod the controls of the game to work better on the 3DS control stick, as well as have Y set to walk instead of run.

Also, an HD texture mod along-side for emulators would be the bees fucking knees.

>> No.3755398

I prefer the DS art style of Mario 64 and the Dreamcast style of Sonic Adventure.
