I followed the elaborate instructions for the Metroid Prime Widescreen HUD hack which is posted on the Dolphin emulator wiki. Apparently this hack was nearly lost completely and fortunately someone had a copy and re-uploaded. It's quite tricky to do though, so I decided to create an xdelta patch for it to make it easier. In the interest of keeping up with the times, it patches 'Metroid Prime (USA).nkit.iso' from the NKit Redump set. It must be that specific version of the game. I also included the frustrum culling fix mentioned in the readme. I made the patch with with xdelta3. Put this in the same folder as the patch file and the game NKit and run:
Code: Select all
xdelta3 decode "Metroid Prime (USA).nkit.iso.HUD mod.xdelta"
I have attached the original hack distribution too so it's clear that I'm not claiming any credit. I'm just making the installation a lot easier (and possible without a Windows PC).
