Despite Nintendo's crackdown last month on the Super Mario 64 PC port, it's reportedly not been enough to stop the project from being improved upon.

According to VGC, the modding community is still continuing to enhance the visual elements of the not-so-original release - even though many of the original download links have now been removed.

Here's the rundown about a few of the latest developments along with a side-by-side comparison:

Since Mario 64 PC was released in May, fans have implemented a new modern Mario model, improved the game’s textures via AI upscaling and added an alternative set of textures created by hand.

it’s also possible to implement ray-tracing in Mario 64 via the third-party Reshade app

The source goes on to state how links of the Super Mario 64 PC executable are still being "actively shared" on social media sites as well.

We're sure this won't be the last we hear about this project, and if Nintendo's legal eagles take any further legal action we'll let you know.
