Super Smash Bros. Melee's character select screen is iconic. It has a great design. However, I wanted to experiment with a few changes to "fix" various aspects about the character select screen and essentially make a definitive version. This is not a mod, but this would be a nice mod. Here are some important things to make note of:

-This image is 584x480 pixels, the correct resolution of Super Smash Bros. Melee. This was made with a screenshot taken in Dolphin at 640x480 and then adjusted.
-All character mugshots were removed from the screenshot and replaced with the textures ripped from the game. The textures in the game are actually too wide and then are adjusted in-game, so the mugshots were adjusted to the correct size. Any errors with resizes have been adjusted.
-Parts of the menu graphics were replaced with ripped textures and a screenshot of the isolated background so that the original character mugshots from the screenshot could be removed.
-There were many inconsistencies with the border of the character mugshots. Mario, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Fox, Pikachu, Captain Falcon, and Ness all had a black border on the inside of their mugshot's border. A correct mugshot border was made from the mugshots of Samus and Fox, and I replaced every mugshot border with the correct one.
-The background of each name tag is now the same gradient and shade. Notably, this gradient was completely missing from Roy's mugshot.
-The spacing between mugshots is now consistent between every character. Dr. Mario, Falco, Ganondorf, Young Link, Pichu, and Roy are no longer slightly lower than the other mugshots.
-The mugshots are now actually centered with thirty pixels of space on either side.
-To make adjustments easier, the mugshots are separated into layers (from top to bottom): character name, name tag background, mugshot border, character art, mugshot background overlay, mugshot background.

Hope you guys enjoy!

What if Banjo-Kazooie was in Super Smash Bros. Melee?

I love Melee!
I can see this as a blank template to add other characters.

The clone characters being a little lower than the originals is not an inconsistency. Nice job regardless!

Thank you! I know it's not really an inconsistency and was more than likely intentional, but I wanted to level them for the sake of organization.
