Modder adds ray tracing to Mario 64’s unofficial PC port

In connection: Earlier this year, a brave, anonymous PC user launched their own Mario 64 port for PC with no warning or fanfare. While Nintendo was quick to crack down on download links, the port has already found its way into the wild, and modders have had a great day using it since then.

Some mods loosen the game’s frame rate (which we don’t recommend), remove the train distance limit so you can see objects and enemies from a greater distance, and even add entirely new HD models for several key characters.

But more impressive than any other is a mod by Twitter user Darío that adds real ray tracing to the game.

It’s not yet publicly available, but the modder has regularly posted progress pictures on his Twitter page.

For now, Darío has just improved his implementation of ray-traced reflections, and it looks pretty good. So far we’ve seen a ray traced version of Metal Mario and a ray traced water drop (or at least we assume it’s water) that you can see in the images above.

We look forward to seeing Dario’s progress in the months ahead, and we will surely let you know if his mod will ever be released or receive major improvements.
