At long last, here it is. SMTC 1.0 (Mark I), a fully playable Metroid Classic game experience.
There are FAR fewer parade floats and flying streamers than I had come to expect.
Anyway, you can download it here.
As always you can get the latest release at www.g0dsoft.com/smtc/Downloads/SMTC_Release_Latest.rar.
For the love of god, read the readme I included. All of it. I'm serious.
And start pimping this to your friends/neighbors/victims/people you don't like. Get the word out people!
Update: Just encountered a crash. Using the elevator from Ridley's Lair to Norfair. Haven't been able to reproduce it yet. SAVE OFTEN. As in, every time you pass a save room.
Also, the list of known bugs is nowhere near up to date. I'll post a new one soon.
Update 2: Patched a crash issue in Tourian. Please download the zip/rar again if you got it earlier this afternoon.
Update 3: If you are experiencing a crash in the Mother Brain's room, please try this patch and leave a comment if it works. If not, back to the drawing board.
Update 4: This patch should solve some minor problems in the Ridley's Lair section (and one major one, yeesh). Replace your old Rooms folder with the new one included. Also contains some other minor bug fixes.
FYI: If you're downloading this for the first time, the package is being updated with the patches, so you won't need them.
