This is a little project I’ve been working on over the course of a few months. It’s a mod to change the character movesets and mechanics of Sm4sh to make it more like Melee. It includes all of the animation ports I have uploaded to Gamebanana plus more. At the moment, it’s impossible to get every single little detail that made Melee unique, but I’m doing my best to emulate the fast-paced, combo-heavy gameplay. All of the melee veterans have been mostly brought back plus a few buffs for the lower tiers, and all of the Brawl/Sm4sh newcomers have been tweaked as well. Here is a changelog to let you know what you’re getting into before you download (The changelog itself is unfinished, but the changes are there.) This mod currently just changes the mechanics of the game and it is UNPACKED, so you can use it with any cosmetic, sound, or stage mods.
Any feedback left in the comment section is appreciated, especially bug reports (read “known issues” in the changelog first.) PM me for any suggestions/requests/questions etc.

This mod aims to increase the pace of the game, as well as give characters more diverse combos and options. Every character has been tweaked to allow them to do what they do best… even better! Essentially, every character has been buffed beyond vanilla Sm4sh’s standards, while still staying true to their character. This mod is also sort of a tribute to past installments of Smash (namely, Smash 64 and Melee), with some mechanics being reworked, such as hitstun between that of the first two installments (the removal of hitstun cancelling as well), Directional Influence being increased, faster ledgegrabs and more!
I’ve realized that this mod is largely unfinished, so if you’ve downloaded it and played around, you may have noticed that some characters still feel slow or unchanged. I am currently working to make sure all characters in the game get the attention they deserve, and to make sure they feel less restricted and fun to play. It may take awhile before I release another update of this mod, and when I do, it will probably be under a different name, because my goal of this mod is not have it be an upgrade or updated version of Sm4sh, but something different. This was my first public mod release, and it’s evident that this was a learning experience for me. That being said, I aim to improve on it as much as I can to create a different Smash experience than what you may have been used to. Of course, this is no Project M for Wii U (as much as I wish it were), but I plan on the next release being much bigger than what I have uploaded now.
A big thanks to those who have supported me and to those who provided feedback. I’m always open to ideas/opinions, so if you’ve got one, feel free to let me know in the comments section!
