Description
Project ZM is a work-in-progress vanilla+ hack for the North American (U) Metroid Zero Mission ROM. It is designed to fix errors and add new gameplay routes, tricks and mechanics.

Standard Patch (Proj_ZM_082.ips)
The intended experience for new players.
- In the original game and this patch, some abilities are unknown items -- They cannot be used right away.
- Chozo statues drop hints to keep you on track.

Unknown Items Enabled (Proj_ZM_082_Unk_Enabled.ips)
For experienced players and speedrunners. If this is your first time, do not use this patch. You will be lost.
- Samus' suit can use unknown items.
- Chozo hint statues are removed.
- Item messages can be dismissed faster.
- Instant door transitions.
- Plasma beam deals less damage since it is obtained earlier in the game. (You probably won't even notice anyway)

Solid remake. Few issues here and there, but was a really good improvement hack for Zero Mission!
Finished.
Recommend.
Hey, imagine how good this is now that it's at version 0.73!

Excellent improvement! This makes the game quite a bit better in various ways. In particular, I felt I was getting more out of the unknown items with them being available early game. The speedbost/shinespark modifications are neat too.
There are still some minor issues, like with the map tiles, as well as with some sound not playing after getting my first Super in Crateria while doing the speed/spark thing, but overall this has potential for players and other romhackers alike.

I loved the mod and I would wonder if you can use am2r samus sprites for this mod, of course in the next update

Good hack,there are some annoying things like,the automatic charge beam,when i need to freeze the enemy,i hit it with the charge beam and i kill it! The moving on shinespark can be helpful,but it also can be annoying,like i accidentaly press the right or left buttons at the wrong moment,and i have to do it again.
