Description
This is a fix for Super Zero Mission which fixes all of the problems the original has. The fix is made by advancedpillow, the original is made by SBniconico

Partial text from advancedpillow taken from romhacking.net (edited due to char limit):

Metroid SUPER-SPEED Zero Mission is a faster version of the original romhack by SB, named Metroid Super Zero Mission. SBniconico brought the GBA’s Zero Mission to Super Metroid, but to truly appreciate SBniconico’s masterpiece, you had to know how to super-short-charge the Speed Booster. This patch opens the whole of SBniconico’s Zebes for players of all skill levels. You will be able to shinespark through all of SB’s shortcuts and secret areas that are hidden just about everywhere you can imagine, without having to short charge.

You need to patch a non-headered Super Metroid rom.

incomplete list of changes made to the original mod:

1. Samus can build a shinespark faster.
2. Samus can use the speed booster in Morph Ball form (must have Speed Booster and Spring Ball).
4. After reaching a shinesparking state while still running, Samus can maintain the shinespark while spin jumping left or right utilising the Space Jump item.
5. Samus does not lose momentum when landing after a jump.
7. Adjusted how many hours it takes to get the different endings; you have more time to get the best ending.
8. Fixed a scroll pointer mistake in Tourian.
15. Changed HUD highlight color to yellow for an easily distinguishable difference from the original romhack’s color, which is green.
16. Made minor edits to various rooms to build a brand-new, hidden route that enables Samus to fully power-up her suit/beam upgrades after defeating only Bomb Torizo and then Botwoon.

Metroid: SUPER-SPEED Zero Mission was created and released with full permission from SBniconico.

The original MSZM is arguably one of the best Super Metroid hacks of all time.
However it's very hard to finish 100% because some items require speedrunner reflexes to get.
While this patch tries to address this problem, it unbalances the original game by making some items too easy to obtain, and some chain shinespark puzzles are now pointless. With some difficulty curve adjustements I would consider it the definitive MSZM edition, since it was the only major issue of the original game IMO.

This is a minor complaint though. All the quality of life improvements are very welcome, the game is much more pleasant to explore and I prefer playing this version most of the time.

Highly recommended.

A new difficulty option for an excellent hack that could use an easier version. I think Normal is fine to play still but this is far easier to get items in. I think the review above is excellent so I'm just going to say ditto. Thanks for the hack, I'm sure many will appreciate it in time.
