"Super Smash Bros. Legacy" is not a replacement of, continuation of, or re-imagining of Project M. It's simply a compilation modpack that's made for fun. The pack will never attempt to improve on the characters' abilities, do any kind of mechanics changes to the 3.6 characters, etc.
As we've said before, we aren't affiliated with the PMDT at all, we're just fans.
If you are telling folks PM is continuing, that is harming the scene and confusing it. We don't want to do that, so we'd like to make it clear that we don't plan on doing that. Legacy is just our flavor of it, and shouldn't ever be considered the standard.
PS. The "Retro Mode (alpha)" in 1.3 is not at all affiliated with the Project64/Retro mode that's being worked on independently.
Happy Easter! Super Smash Bros. Legacy 1.3 is out!!
First off, we've done a name change from Smash Bros. Legacy M 3.6 so it was less confusing with the version number. Super Smash Bros. Legacy is based upon Project M 3.6, so we don't need to add that in the title. "Smash Bros. Legacy" is the name of the dev team, sans "Super."
Files included are hackless, homebrew, portable netplay, and sd.raw versions. There are also a "hd pack" and "music dlc" files as well. Portable netplay includes Dolphin, a for-netplay sd.raw file, and the entire HD pack.
We've had standardized portraits since 1.2, but now we've posed and rendered each costume ourselves for new CSPs and BPs! Not only that, but with the HD pack, you can experience it on Dolphin with beautiful high-resolution textures.
We've added some new skins, stages, and songs, but most of all we've added Rainbow mode and a Retro Mode (currently in alpha). Rainbow mode is accessible by holding down Z on the Character Selection Screen, while Retro mode is accessible in Special Mode.
The music DLC pack is essentially all of the songs from 1.21 we had to remove from 1.3 so it took up less file space. Since adding every song is over 2GB, you'll have to pick and choose which songs you want from the music pack unless you are able to use storage media that allows for over 2GB storage capacity.
Lastly, be sure to check out the credits.txt that's part of the download. The folks responsible for the amazing mods in this pack are listed there. Also secrets like how to get to some of the stages in the trailer above (rainbow road stage, Dark Link room stage, etc)!
Here's the trailer we released last Halloween! So far we've received over 10,000 downloads and are seeing more inclusion in tournaments than ever before.
We're thrilled that we've reached version 1.21 so far, and are preparing 1.3 sometime in the coming month or two. In the mean time we intend to post updates here, so check back often!
On behalf of the new Smash Bros. Legacy team, I am pleased to announce our new website.
Our Tumblr account will remain active as always, we just decided it would be best to create a central hub for everything Smash!
Check back here for updates to our Project M build, streams, and other content.
Have a great November, and get hyped for Smash Wii U!
