I'll make a video and post it on youtube soon. For the time being, have a look at my personal long term project:

This is a big game and I'm adding some functions to HDNes to make it easier to work with.

6-7-2014
1. Fixed a few bug that may cause Batch mapping dialog to crash.
2. Improved speed by copying a pointer instead of copying a large object.
3. Added the ability to select multiple tiles using shift key and ctrl key.
4. Added the ability to specify the brightness when displaying a replacement tile.
5. Added the ability to automatically detect and add mappings with a lowered brightness to darker palettes.
6. Added the ability to customize the palette manually or by importing the colours from a file.
7. Added a panel next to the screen shot for displaying the selected tile enlarged.

A rough attempt at Mario in HDNes using some of João Victor G. Costa's sprites (by Alex Douglas).

And some Super Mario Bros 2 background art, and other stuff, from my comic.

It also lags a lot on my computer.. The music becomes awful slow ;/

Do you think there's a way to make a full mapping of the sprites and tiles with the flipped parts?

A full Mario body instead of a half!

To do that, the emulator must allow the user to use RAM values and tile orientation to choose a replacement tile. In this case, we need to check which direction is Mario facing as well as whether the tiles are flipped or not. If he is facing right then the normal tiles is his back side and the flipped tiles is his front side. If he is facing left then the normal tiles is his front side and the flipped files is his back side.

This is a powerful feature and tepples suggested it too. In fact that problem is also one of the biggest difficulty I found so far when making HD pack. It is that when some tiles are used in 2 or more different situations with the same palette, it greatly restricts what we can put into those shared tiles. But with this feature, the user can identify the different situations and provide different replacement tiles. But it will take a long time to implement and I'm not ready to do it yet.

Hi there! I am Alex Douglas, as tygerbug mentioned above, I have been using João Victor G. Costa's artwork alongside HDNes and provided the previous screenshots.
I have made some more progress, so here are some screenshots to showcase exactly what this emulator can do. Enjoy!

As a side note: Although not pictured here, the reskinned fireball graphics apply as well to the Fire Bars in Bowser's castle, of course.

Hi guys! GreenGuy here. I'm glad you like my projects (Zelda 2 & Metroid revamps). Figuring out how the music worked was a bit tricky at first but now I'm a pro. If anyone needs help with this program just let me know. I'll be happy to help you out as best as I can.

Thanks for telling me, I'll take a look at it.
