old blocktool is still useful for people that doesn't/can't use .net framework.
why is this site made the rule even though its"backwards compatible" with BTSD when jhonwil blocktool can still use it?
so is the site gonna replace all bin files with asm so people can't use the blocks with old blocktool on the moderated section?
Actually I think BT is outdated, and there is no problem to download and install NET.Framework for make BTSD runs. Let's just say NET.Framework is now necessary for insert blocks in your hack, and for use lots of other tools. Also, it's here if you do wanna try. This won't affect your computer, just give compatibility.
If you're not allowed to install/use .NET for whatever reason, then that's pretty much not our problem.
We're not going to stop upgrading our standards for a single person, after all you really are the first person I've ever seen complaining about this ever, which is a negligible amount, as harsh as that may sound.
And yes, replacing all .bin blocks on the site with .asm blocks is one of our goals, although not really one of high priority at all, pretty much nobody cares about it, bare for the occassional "LETS CONVERT THIS SHIT" movement.
Also, the next BTSD version will lose all backwards compatibility with .bin blocks if my mind serves right, so that argument will be moot soon enough.
how about this - all the blocks will be [bt/btsd] (both bin and asm)per file good idea?
Sorry to say, but block tool can lead to glitches, which is why they want to change all blocks to be BTSD-Compatible. So no, if you're going to continue using custom blocks I suggest you just download NET.Network and get it over with.
i know the glitches and prevent it
-fall through top corners(rare chance as long the corner is blocked
-jump through corners when big mario jumps left towards the bottom left corner(to prevent this glitch block the corner)
-slowdown(to prevent this glitch do not add too much custom blocks)
-background garbage on the upper left corner(to prevent this glitch use:
fg=00 bg=00 top
fg=60 bg=90 middle
fg=C0 bg=C0 bottom
fg=00 bg=00 top
fg=60 bg=60 middle
fg=C0 bg=C0 bottom
so it won't show
for vertical level the background repeats every 2 screens use vscroll=none
about the "as long as we convert them to .asm i was wandering about converting back and forth with asm and bin like if you want to edit/program the bin file the easy way, try converting to asm and then edit then when your done turn it back into bin. so that way its not that bad for editing as long you use the asm edit to bin.
if the convert from bin to asm is permanent(can't change back to bin) then the easy way doesn't work
Just wondering, what happens when you run BTSD? What error are you getting? I think you should at least make some effort to try to get it working rather than relying on using jonwil's tool all the time.
Most everyone in the world can use Blocktool Super Delux if they install the .NET framework, which is required by quite a few tools for hacking SMW. Transitioning into a new tool wouldn't stop anything, especially not the Automatic Mario levels. Most Automatic Mario levels use what SMW originally included with the game, and the few blocks they do use are incredibly simple blocks that we have plenty of already.
Besides this, most Automatic Mario levels were designed back when Jonwil's tool was pretty much the only one around - there are plenty of alternatives that are actually much better and safer to use such as Blocktool Super Delux and the patch yoshicookiezeus mentioned.
As long as it's on youtube, nobody will care, really. Besides, as long as an IPS file of those automatic mario's still exist, they wont have to reinsert anything because the blocks are already in the game.
<p4plus2> SON|KKU: its easier to stop before it bytes you in the ass
<p4plus2> FUCKING WOW
Or you can keep the current BTSD and download all bin blocks for future use.
not the bin block i trouble with its the .net program that refuse to help me with the btsd
im using blocktool + lunar compress i also have an error message about using xkas that won't start. by the way i think your saying this
soon the only way to have custom blocks is having the .net
i think you hate jhonwil,
im using zsnes and didn't encounter bugs
by the way i know about laptop that act like windows xp, if i get one, the .net program is accessible to use but i had to wait till next year..
