– Id ~ Purpose from Fire Emblem Awakening for Arena Ferox
Other:

– Made several images more pretty, both in-game and on the ProjectBEST page.
– Rearranged the Stage Select Screen (see this post)

Version 2 -> Version 3 notes:

Stages:
- Dracula’s Castle has a Dive to the Heart texture from Kingdom Hearts on it. The Belle station is the platform where you first the first boss, Darkside in Kingdom Hearts 1.

– Removed Planet Zebes 64, reverted to normal Project M Norfair
– Distant Planet has a skin called Castle Courtyard, now the stage doesn’t get dark anymore! Yaaaay
– Smashville will now change depending on the time of day. I found out how to edit blast zones and stuff, so I think it should be PM 3.0-ready.
– WarioWare, Inc now has a blue Jack Frost (Shin Megami Tensei series) texture on it, called Frostware.
– Added Meta Mine stage from GunBound over Flat Zone 2. (Please see note at the bottom of the page)

– Minish Cap/Ezlo costume for Toon Link
– Redesigned Zero Suit for Samus
– New pretty sword trails for Marth and Roy
– Shadow the Hedgehog skin over black Sonic
– New character select portraits for Mario (because there was one of white-overalls Mario) and Marth, swapped icons for new ones for Fox, Marth, and Zero Suit Samus

Music:
– Music was added and rearranged to fit the new stage list, see below. Please make sure to visit the My Music menu before playing!
– Added K.K. Slider songs

Other:
- Added some fun things here and there (Loading screen after the Strap Screen, and on the Stage Select Screen)

PROJECT BEST 3.02

This is my personal customized build for the popular Super Smash Bros: Brawl mod, Project M. The download includes the files necessary to boot both from the Homebrew Channel and the hackless Stage Builder method.

“Project BEST” is the product of months of collecting music, stages, graphics, and character skins, and (previously) several weeks of struggling with editing menu files. I wanted my build to be a balance between tryhard competitive content and “just for fun” stuff. So, I hope you all enjoy it!

BUILD GOALS:

  • Add awesome music to Smash to, that fits the stage and isn’t too distracting or unexpected.
  • Replace some of the more annoying stages with stages that are more suited to competitive play, or to make them less annoying.
  • Keep a balance between a set of stages that are competitively focused, and fun or nostalgia stages
  • Avoid adding entirely new fighters or changing any characters’ movesets, so as to preserve Project M’s gameplay, balance, and feel.
  • Add cool new textures and skins that I found and liked to characters and stages, for aesthetics.

NOTE: You will need a *2GB* SD card for hackless method. (It won’t fit on a 1 GB card) For Homebrew you can use larger capacity SDHC cards thanks to Version 3.01.

DOWNLOAD

Most players should use the Full Set version, unless you really want to save replays, in which case get the Wifi-Safe version.

(July 14 2014) ProjectBESTfull ver3.1 (888 MB) – Full Set
(July 14 2014) ProjectBESTwifi ver3.1 (888 MB) – “Wifi-Safe” Set

If you need a program to open the archive, I suggest 7-Zip.

+

INSTALLATION

  1. Fully format your SD card. Do not quick format, and do not name it “Project M” or similar.
  2. Extract files onto SD card so you have the 4 folders, boot.elf, and gameconfig.txt on the root directory of the SD card (same procedure as installing regular Project M)
  3. Safely remove the SD card, and play!

If there’s any weirdness going on, try defragmenting the SD card first.

NOTES

  • Bowser’s Castle and Lost Woods Island are somewhat prone to lagging. Things that may cause slowdown: character costumes, or matches with more than 2 players. I will do something or another about the Lost Woods lag for the next update…
  • When KO’d off the bottom of Meta Mine, the stage zooms out too much and there’s black on the side where the background image ends. I don’t know how to fix this.
  • Project BEST uses the Melee SFX pack, including menu sounds, except Sheik and Zelda, and Falco’s blaster has its heavier PSHOOO sound from Brawl, because it sounds cooler and I like it.
  • Project BEST is, to my knowledge, the only place where you will find the PokeRap, the Beyblade song, Roar by Treat, and The Maid and the Pocketwatch of Blood by Fox Factory.
  • Includes Nintendoge assist trophy. Wow.
  • Credit to SJS for his character portraits
  • Ike uses his Japanese voice.
  • The hardest part is making Stage Select Screen series logos and icons. (As for Frostware and MetaMine, since they didn’t come with such assets.) I’m satisfied with what I made, though.
  • All stages should have the 3.0 camera on them.
  • The gameplay on the “commonly used tournament stages” (bottom two rows, first page, plus Distant Planet and sometimes Dracula’s Castle) are unchanged except for Pokemon Stadium 1. Dive to the Heart has minor fixes to Dracula’s Castle to make the stage properly flat, but that’s hardly game-changing.
  • See this post for notes on Stage Select Screen tweaks.

Enjoy! Your feedback is appreciated in the comments :)

51 responses to “Project M 3.02 Custom Build – Updated July 14 2014

  1. It says on the loading screen (that looks like a debug screen before you open Project M) GeckoUSB is missing (or something like that) Help?

    • It sounds to me like you’ve got something else going on, like a non-standard PM setup? I just use a Brawl disc and an SD card (and homebrew channel). I assume those with USB Loaders or other alternative methods know what to do with my files.

  2. Can you please explain how to use 7 zip? It has all these options and nothing I tried worked. I can’t get all the individual files to be extracted. I was able to do it easily in past versions with Winrar but not anymore.

  3. Great build! My only problem with it is the fighters’ sounds. I love Ike’s English voice acting and Melee SFX feels incomplete. Is there a way to restore the original fighters’ SFX, by any chance? Thanks.

    • - Replace the projectm/pf/sfx folder with the one from regular Project M
      – For every character affected by Melee SFX, replace their projectm/pf/fighter/character/FitCharacter.pac file (the one without the numbers on the end) with the one from regular Project M (where ‘character’ is the name of the character in question)
      – Download the Shining Blade sword trails for Marth and use its FitMarth.pac instead of the one from regular Project M

      I’m pretty sure if you do this, it’ll restore the SFX to Brawl. Let me know if something goes wonky.

  4. Okay so i downloaded this & did everything exactly as it’s written but when i launch from the homebrew it just hangs on a black screen. Any reason why it might do that & is there a fix?

  5. Hello there! So I am downloading this, but I have a question:
    My brother loves saving replays, but he wants it to be proper, is there any way to make a wifi-safe set of this game?

  6. I installed the version 3 pack but i encountered a problem. the icons of skins and stages dont update. i reinstalled the pack several times . do you know what could cause it ?

    • Did you make sure to delete everything or fully reformat the SD card and install on an empty card? If you just replace the files, things can get messed up easily.

      • I’m not too familiar with how to get P:M on a PAL Wii, but I think there’s a method to use an SD card with USB Loader or something? Try searching SmashBoards or Reddit’s /r/smashbros and /r/SSBPM for solutions.

        Good luck!

      • Thanks anyways :D . Your V2 worked like a charm for me though.Ill just skip v 3 before i get it to work :D

  7. Pingback: Project BEST version 3 is ready! | Aerocaester

  8. I have no idea how to put everything on an SD card. I downloaded it onto my Mac and it comes as one big file that can’t be unzipped. I tried just putting that file in but it doesn’t work. Can you please help?

  9. i have a suggestion if i may. i love what you did with the game. i’m a smash fanatic, but i’m a little upset you took out maps and added them. i say this because you took my absolute favorite map. Hyrule temple from melee. i must say your new choice of characters are awesome, and i love using them in game cant wait to show my bro! he loves Ryu from street fighter. but another question if possible? cap falcon and Ganon play the same can you make Ganon Akuma? i noticed he didn’t have a costume yet. i just thought that would be cool have Akume vs Ryu xD . and please switch Ryu to Lucario. i know big change, but with project m move set Ryu would be legit perfect on Lucario. Lucario uses all 3 of Ryu’s signature moves! i look forward to a new update to Project best! I’m not expecting all to happen so quickly, but in hope to see Ryu on Lucario. i figure it will be easy. only because you already have both of them in game :) if you can great please !

    • Hi! Thanks for trying my PM build ^^
      Regarding…

      Stages: Right now, the only way to add new stages without breaking the Stage Striking feature or the Random Select is to replace existing stages. Since we never play Temple at my house (I hate it) it only made sense to replace it.

      Akuma Ganon: There do exist Akuma skins for Ganon, but I won’t be using it. I included Ryu mostly because I thought it would be funny (and everyone knows who Ryu is), but Akuma doesn’t quite fit in with Ganon to me.

      (You could try adding Akuma in yourself, if you’re so inclined. There are directions to be found on Smashboards/reddit/Google…)

      Ryu to Lucario: There isn’t a Ryu skin for Lucario. It’s not as simple as moving it over! I do agree that he’d be a good fit though. Hadouken!

  10. Hello, i have a little problem with the stages, the majority of them don’t appear in the stage select screen and i don’t know what could be, they appear in the random select screen but nothing more :( thanks.

    • They “don’t appear”? Can you select them? I don’t really understand your problem, so you’ll have to be a little more specific or provide a picture or something.

      Try redownloading + reformatting your SD card,, and/or defragging, if you haven’t already.

      • I can’t select them, all the stages appear in the random stage switch screen in the rules menu but when i try to choose them in a fight only a few appear(embedded tower, ruined namek, ryoshima coast, spear pillar, training rom, bowser’s castle and hidden bridge) the rest are the same included in project m.

        PD: Sorry if my english its not good enough, it’s not my first language :P

      • I don’t even have stages by some of those names… o__O

        I don’t know. All I can recommend is you reformat your SD card and reinstall the build, sorry. Perhaps your card has gone bad, maybe you just need to reinstall. It should work, sorry it doesn’t :/

      • I found the problem, apparently some files from another project m mod were in the folders and they mixed with this files :P

        Well now the problem is fixed and finally i can enjoy this game!

      • I’m glad you found the problem!

        It would’ve helped a bit to know you had another mod on the same card… They don’t like to mix if you just copy over ==

      • Thanks dude,, the mod was AMAZING, only one thing, when I choose a few stages like Cental Highway or Frigate Orpheon or Lost woods, then it gets stuck, not sure why, any ideas?

      • Hmm… maybe your files are corrupt? Try redownloading, reformatting your SD card, put Project M on, then defrag the card. If it still gets stuck, reply back and maybe I’ll reupload or something o__o

      • Thanks friend, I’m really loving it everything works PERFECTLY, just want more thing I want to ask, I found this 78 stage build yesterday, I installed it but it takes it out the most of the features of Project Best, is there a way I can keep both Project Best & 78 stage build?

      • I’m glad it’s working for you!

        The 78 stage build uses this expansion thingy that I haven’t tried before, so I don’t know exactly how it works.

        Merging the two builds properly would take some work (time consuming).

        I don’t use the stage expansion mod because before, I heard it had issues with PM (I guess not anymore?) and because I don’t like it when there’s TOO many choices. Simple replacement works for me, so for now, you’ll have to make a choice, sorry.

      • I found this regarding issues with the Stage Expansion mod: (copypaste)

        KNOWN ISSUES
        Because this build is based off of the Classic Expansion Pack, it inherits all of the CEP’s problems. All of these issues are beyond my level of knowledge to fix.
        – Stage Striking does not work properly and causes oddities.
        – All expansion stages are available on random, but do not appear on random select. Therefore, they cannot be removed from random.
        – My Music does not work for expansion stages. Selecting an expansion stage (denoted by a striked stage) on My Music will freeze the game.
        – In Turbo Mode, the purple glow around characters will sometimes disappear while on the expansion stages.
        – Stage portraits on the SSS are of low quality to prevent freezing.
        – All changed files from 3.01 > 3.02 have been manually updated, but the launcher still thinks it’s version 3.01.

        I like my properly functioning random stage select, My Music menu, and stage striking, so looks like I’ll be skipping this mod.
