Just to let you all know, I'm not dead :P I've been very busy with school lately, so I hardly had any time to work on the YI maps. That, and my sister bought a Wii which is very time-consuming...

I can probably do some maps the next week, so hopefully I finish some of them in time for next weeks update.

@Will: Peardian said he wants to remap ALL levels again, including his own. But he has some other projects so it might take up to two years before he finishes everything.

@Jon: ofcourse I'll do them as PNG. Making JPEGs of it makes no sense because the files will be bigger in size and the compression ruins everything.

However, I will not add the backgrounds to my images. I feel it's very distracting and does not give any advantages over not having a background.

So the way it is now, I will finish up all remaining levels (I just realised all worlds also have 1 bonus level, which means I will have to finish each level at 100%, so these levels will probably be done last) and when Peardian does his new take, Jon can decide which version to keep.

I guess Peardian will include the background, so probably his new versions will replace mine but that's fine with me when the time comes.

I contacted Peardian about it, and we worked something out :)

Very true, but maybe you can do a view from an angle, kind of what DarkWolf did for the Wolf3D maps. Doing those maps in 2D would have lost a lot of information as well, but the way he did it is awesome.

I should have some 3D models from MK64 lying around (and possibly MKDD too), maybe I can do some tests with it :D

Making maps for Mario Kart Wii should be possible, and it's not really that hard. Here, look at this site: or this image: or this forum thread:

Compression formats on the Wii are often identical or very similar to the GC, and since the program can open MKDD tracks, I'm sure you can open MKW tracks as well. I havn't tried it myself though, because I do not own a Wii or a rom of it.

About Mickey Mania: "I doubt anyone would even want to map them. They're certainly not worth mapping over so many other games available on the Super NES. I wouldn't miss them."

I started working on Mickey Mania a while ago, but it's a hard game to map. I might finish it one day, but if anyone else wants to do it, I really wouldn't mind.

I remember playing "Toy Story" on the SNES, I'll see if I still like it and maybe start mapping it after I finish...

... Yoshi's Island. I finished World 2 and already sent it to Jon, so hopefully it will be added this weekend. The other maps will follow.
