I can remember spending hours playing the first Super Mario Bros. game with my cousins and never getting tired of hearing those same sounds or playing the same levels over and over (though I did always try to skip the water levels - I hated those!). And now a blast from our past visits us in the world of JK2.Choosing Morgan as the model for a skin of Mario, from ... well ... of course, the Super Mario Bros. games, was the perfect choice. The classic Mario is portrayed here, with his red shirt, suspenders with gold buttons, blue pants and his tool belt (which was in the cartoon and movie, right?).
What I must praise Kuro Hou for most of all is the use of sounds. We all know and love Mario and his sounds are quite recognizable. The jump and death sounds are perfect. The taunt is neither here nor there to me. But everything else sounds great. :) Yes, this skin looks very cartoony - as the author pointed out. But, I mean, c'mon ... it's Mario ... he's supposed to be cartoony! I think he looks great, considering the limits of the model. He even has those white gloves. *giggle* So, after playing with this skin, I now feel the need to revisit that old game just because I'm feeling nostalgic. :)
Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: YES!
Mario Skin by Kuro Hou aka Torin Forst e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org About the skin: Everyone knows Mario, star of the popular Super Mario Bros. games. I've always been a big fan of his and I figured why not bring him to JK2. He looks cartoony, but he's supposed to. I will admit that it's not perfect on the "skin" category, but I doubt you will be able to keep from laughing at the sounds. Bot and Team support is included. (Blue and Default are the same, Red is Fire Mario) ___________________________________________________________________________ Installation Instructions Place the Mario.pk3 file into your gamedata/base directory.
