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 add new gameplay routes, tricks and mechanics.

- Enable unknown items -- Separate patch. Samus' suit is now compatible with unknown items, right from the start!

- SM controls -- Choose between GBA and SNES controls in the options menu.

- Walljump with spacejump -- You can now walljump when you have spacejump or space + screw attack.

- Fusion style R-shot -- Fire a charged shot without interrupting a spinjump by arming explosives

- Faster shinespark recovery -- When samus sparks into something, she recovers faster.

- Suitless spacejump in liquids -- You can spacejump in liquids without the gravity suit.

- Compactified HUD
- Improved physics
- Faster room transitions
- Mid-air ballsparking
- SM style item grabbing
- SM style equipment toggling
- Shinespark steering
- Initiate speed booster in Morph ball
- Charge tractor beam

World changes:
- Low% is now as low as 4%. (Morph, bombs, Ice beam, missile tank)
- All unknown items and power grip can be skipped.
- A bunch of rooms were changed to make low% without power grip possible.
- Perfect stealth is humanly achievable.
- There is a new way to skip mua and zipline activation, but it has its own set of challenges... (Hint: It's in a secret room)
- The black space pirates are now weak to any beam. Plasma beam is not required.
- Hard mode and Time attack mode are always available.

Solid remake. Few issues here and there, but was a really good improvement hack for Zero Mission!
Finished.
Recommend.

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.
