Stages

Stage Select Changes

  • There are now two pages to the stage select screen, an Alpha page and an Omega page. This allows for 29 more stage slots.
  • The default page is the Omega page.
  • To get to the Omega page from the Alpha page, press “R”. To get to the Alpha page from the Omega page, press “L”.
  • Each page has altered graphics to show the player which page they are on.
  • Each page has a separate Random Stage Select list, which can be changed in the usual place. The default list is the Omega list and is accessed by going into the menu as normal, and the Alpha stage list is accessed by holding “L” while going into the menu.
  • Pressing “Start” to select a random stage selects a random stage from the current page. Highlighting “Random” and pressing “A” selects a random stage from either page.
  • If a random stage is selected, a siren plays if it is loading the Omega version and a chime sound is played is it is loading the Alpha version. This is useful for knowing which version of the stage is loading if pressing “A” on “Random”.

5 comments on “Stages

    • I personally would like to see more of the “Omega” stages available, though I do like some of the transformations in Pokemon Stadium as well. I think if the no-transformation version is put into it, the original should still be available as well to use as a counterpick. That being said, the new Green Greens is pretty similar to the default PS.

  1. I think you should create however layouts you intend to be the stage list for competitive play, then take all the stages in Melee and make them skins for those layouts.

    This way every stage gets seen and the stage list remains a good size.

    • You might have to press “L” and then press “R” again to get back. As far as I can tell, you don’t need to hold “L” to get the alt music, only that you press it at some point. We’ll probably address this issue in the next version.
