Tip: Avoid "item babysitting". Do not force the player to drag P-Switches or springboards all around the level. This is not fun, nor does it make for interesting "puzzles".Not logged in.

This hack is cancelled, read my latest post to understand why.

It's been a long time since I came here. I'm retired from smwhacking more or less five years. Seems that now I'm inspired to come back to the scene and enjoy the new features and tools people made for smw hacking. Am I too late? :P I don't even know how to hack anymore.

Back in 2009, I was doing a project where I aimed to port World-e levels from Super Mario Advance 4 to Super Mario World engine, trying to replicate as much as possible the engine from SMB3. I stopped this project when I realized that there were many bugs that I wasn't capable of fixing, and my High School was starting. Now I'm on college and I have few time to work on this project. But if things works the way I would like to, I'll put effort on this project and bring it back to life, using the whole new features that smw scene done in these 4 last years.

Link to the old thread (There's not much to see here. Most links are broken)


But before I start working on this project, I would like some feedback. Will this project be worthwhile to put effort again, or is it a waste of time? Probably many people don't even remember when I was working on it, but I fell people enjoyed the pictures I shown.

Take note that all levels would need to be done from scratch. I don't have the tools I used before, and probably many gimmicks, sprites and blocks doesn't work with the new tools commonly used today.

I think the idea isn't half bad - but I think it shouldn't be extremely accurate. I don't really know about these levels you are remaking, but if they have issues you can fix, I believe people would rather you fix it.

Also, off topic, but welcome back! #tb{:)}
Argh, I lost all my comment data! But Welcome back, and anyways, I think it'll be very good to work on it again! And if you want, I'll help you with the new additions and such.

Hi.
Oh man, it's great to see you again! I recently got back into SMW hacking myself : P

I was really interested in this project back then so hopefully you'll end up continuing this again!
Give it a shot! I still remember back in the day when that proyect was being worked on and I didn't even had an account and was kinda exited for it. And the current improvements of LM over the last years should make your job easier.

Also I tried to play them on an emulator the other day and I sucked like you have no idea 'cause mario physics are horrible.

Basically, these levels were extra levels Nintendo did for a port of Super Mario Bros 3 to Game Boy Advance. These levels weren't built in the cartridge. Instead, they came in cards with bar codes to be scanned with a device called e-Reader.

Also, thanks for the greetings ^^

Thanks! And yeah, probably I will need feedback to help guide that project!

Haha nice! I'm glad to hear my project inspired you to come to the scene :D

Again, It's good to see people was really enjoying that production :) I hope you are right about the easier of making hacks nowadays!


When I get more time, I'll post news about how things are going. I not promising anything, but I'll try to have some pictures yet this week.

The previous ROM looks quite good, although there are a few minor issues here and there.

to do


Bar? (People use this nowadays? :P)

- For building the ROM, I'm pretty sure you know how to do that. If not, grab an unedited SMW rom (Make sure the file type is ".smc") and put it in Lunar Magic, and save it.
- For the porting, there are various graphics of its SMAS port on the site, ready to be imported into SMW ROM hacks (Type in "Super Mario Bros. 3" in the filter's name to find them), and for those not ripped, I'll try my best to help!
- Main Levels? As in, the levels of the normal game, or e-Levels?
- For patches, I think you should go for "Best Raccoon+Cape Patch" and "Better Powerdown", maybe even "SMB3 Status Bar" and "NSMB Star Coins" (Especially for the e-Coins).
- Check here and here for custom sprites and blocks, respectively. GPS is also the new tool for inserting blocks, so you'll have to change the blocks around a bit, and remember to use these screen-scrolling pipes by GreenHammerBro, since they're made for use with GPS.
- Here's an unsampled soundtrack for SMAS. Get the sounds here.
- Look here for unused e-Level objects, and here for unused e-Level Graphic and switches.
- Look here for the beta levels in SMB3 SMAS.
- Look here for e-level layouts. Admittedly, you'll likely have to change them around a bit, or use a patch that makes it able to make larger levels (Although Lunar Magic won't be able to display them properly), and it's in beta. (I can't remember the name of it, though..)
- For the bar, I think I can try my best at it, with a twist.

A suggestion is to also add new levels and such into the game, maybe even changing the graphics and music around in already existing e-levels to give it a new flair.

That one is pretty awful, just let him use the SMAS music patch.


music stuff

i will be the first user to reach 10,000 posts and never be a staff member
I would like to announce the kickoff ROM is in build! I'm using the latest Lunar Magic and the following patchs are added to the ROM (subject to changes):

Code
Much Better Raccoon Patch
SMB3 StatusBar + Level Height
One File, One Player Patch


I'm starting to getting the way of things haha!
Graphics definitely won't be a problem, since there are many resources here and there and I can reuse tilesets from previous ROM. What I think that would be trick is that Best Raccoon+Cape Patch.

As you can see, with this patch, you can alternate between Cape and Raccoon Suit in the same ROM. But we would need some ASM knowledge to:
- Make a custom sprite that makes Mario become Cape Mario
- Make a custom sprite that makes Mario become Raccoon Mario
And anotehr tricky thing is to handle graphics and tileset. Definetely they would need to be refreshed each time gets the new powerup. If someone know how to handle the code for it, would be really awesome #tb{^V^}

For now I'll stick with Much Better Raccoon Patch.

Basically I'm talking about the World-e levels, without counting sprites, bonus room, bosses. There are some levels that will be really tricky to port. For example:

Inner Maze Map

As you said, the dimesions of this levels is really large and there's no way I can port this accurately to SMA4. Probably I'll need to break some levels in two or three sessions and change some sessions.

Is GPS Global Positioning System?? runs...

Hmm, what are the advantages of using this block inserter instead of Block Tool Super Deluxe?

I haven't decided yet if I'll stick with SMAS Music Patch or if I'll use Custom Music version. I personally didn't liked unsampled version, because some tracks were really lame :P

But I think if I keep everything like the original game, it would be just one more SMB3 styled hack. Using some custom tracks instead of only SMAS music would bring a new vibe for the levels :D

EDIT:

Definitely I'll include some of these stuffs in the project!



I'm planning doing a parallel project when I finish this one. It would be the World-e levels, but will feature the folowing things:


Code
Features Luigi instead of Mario
Less time to complete e-Levels
Quicker and stronegr enemies


As you can see, something like New Super Mario Bros U and the parallel Super Luigi U #tb{^V^}

Sure I will haha. Thanks.

SUPER HIPER MEGA SURPRISE O_o

inserts epic link of an epic video

Finally, now we have Raccoon and Cape Mario in the same level! I managed to remap properly the graphics with the help of my friend LX5 and this is the result.

Oooh awesome, I don't think I've actually seen hack that has both a Raccoon and Cape form before so it's really nice to see that. Looks like you're making some pretty good progress too (more than me especially xD). Can't wait to see more!
If anyone cares about the progress xD...


World e-01 Wild Ride In The Sky

I would like to show the first level of World-e redone in the new base ROM. Also, this level haven't appeared in the old ROM, I have done it from scratch. Some things have changed in level layout to fit the SMW limits, like, this level is broken in two parts and some line guides and platforms had their sizes decreased.

--------------------

The level looks great! Can't wait to see more from this! #smw{^_^}

Looks nice! Are you planning on disabling the fade out effect with the goals like in SMAS SMB3/SMA4? Or you're gonna leave it as it is?
(In case you want to be faithful as possible with the engine?)
This project is fantastic! 8 worlds will be in this hack, am I right?

It's going to be disabled soon. There are some patches here and there that I will apply when I have enough progress. From personal experience, it wasn't a good idea to apply everything since start. :P

I haven't decided this yet.

More updates for this hack only on weekend!

I remember seeing this hack before, and I have to say: It's still promising. Your levels are well-made, giving a nostalgic SMB3 feel. And the addition of the SMB3 Status Bar is quite a plus. Definitely looking forward to play your hack someday.
