Tip: A common level trope to avoid is "item babysitting". This involves forcing the player to carry P-Switches, springboards, or other items all around the level. Usually, this doesn't end up being very fun or engaging, so use another level gimmick if you can.

Unfortunately, there was nobody of smwcentral who participates in our meeting.
We had someone who joined on IRC, but left after 1 min. Since we were only 4 frenches, we decided to do a MKW contest instead. 'Was funny :)

Finally, as there are not so many people interested in MKW online meeting, we're not going to planning other meeting with smwcentral. But, if you're still interested, just send me a PM ;)
We will be happy to have another challenger. ^^

Nice job! It's nice to see the graphics I made attached to a nicely working sprite. Does it work with slopes?

I didn't test it, but it should work. But it's probably not a good idea; how would be 64 pixels width on a slope?

Kil's volume thing is just... awesome =O

Heeheehee update

@andy_k_250: actually you was right, works rather good with slopes.

SL. That is amazing. Would help a lot for some of the larger sprites. What do you think of my Mini-Necky sprite?

Thanks! Actually I didn't play DKC, but to me this sprite is cool =)

@Fakescaper: ...? it doesn't seem very useful :s

Bio's custom powerup is amazing. But I'm more interested in the next racoon Mario ;)

Yeah, really cool!

I can see the game pause when Mario switches between powerups. Is it when you upload Mario's graphics? (probably sped up by Ersanio and cie's LC_LZ2 Decompression Optimizer patch)

To me it's definitely the best way: we have a lot of space in the rom, why we couldn't use it?

and to do it, we can use DMA or even hijack Mario's GFX pointer stuff like someone I don't remember the name already did earlier in this thread.


As there is a current discussion on english grammar and cie (See this), I make this thread. Think about it: there are a lot of people from different countries, it is a luck we have many different native speakers!

On concrete terms, this thread would be used to ask to native speakers grammars points or whatever you want to clear in your mind. For my part, I will be happy to answer to anybody who has troubles with French.

Also, when I watch english video with no subtitles, I find it so frustrating to not understand! I'm always looking into commentaries on youtube to understand some part with the hope someone made a quote of the video. So this thread can be a place to do transcription of videos; no translation (if you want to do it, why not), just the necessary to understand oral speaking.
Note that I do not want movies or anime episodes subtitles; just sentences I didn't get.
For example, I have a question: what is said in this video, at the end? (when he talks about "25", right after "so are you Blahhhhh")
Besides, I don't understand the whole beginning of this video (until 2:38), so if someone is generous...

I will get for free all of Nintedo's console and Mario's game I could have missed during my life. Wait... With Kirby and Zelda's games. And some cool other games.

Not only english, all languages! if someone has troubles with one of them, I'm sure there are native speakers here who can help. Just like Neutron fix Kipernal's Spannish text. It's a good idea to do that, as I'm always asking myself if I'm writing right in english.

uhhhh... I would never have guessed x)

Although French is messed up. No offense French guys, but your spelling and the way your words are pronounced is fucked up.

Haha, I know, French is not a WYHIWYG (What You Hear Is What You Get xD) language at all. %)

I'm going it myself with French: I try sometimes to google "learn French" to see what are difficulties for the English in the French. It appears that the sound 'u' is very French-specific and cause a lot of troubles to foreigners :D

but one problem with the English language (that could happen with any language, really) that I actually run into quite frequently is lack of a word with a certain meaning.

French is probably one of the most rich language. It has a lot of vocabulary, even redundant terms with a very tiny difference. For example, exulter and exalter. If you take a scale of happiness, the first one represents ~95%, and the second ~90%.

what is the adverbial form of "mediocre"? Another one that has haunted me for a long time is: What is the opposite of "improvement"

Another proof of richness of French:
2.régression, dégradation, détérioration, dégénérescence, ...

Well, this thread is going somewhere I didn't expect, but is very interesting though. So, to come back to its initial purpose: in this video, what does the woman say from 1:19 to 1:30? I can't figure out myself what Gaga did :x

And in this video, can someone transcribe what President Obama said?

I'm surprised more people than I thought know French. Cool.

I can read and write English, but when I write I often make grammar mistakes, and that makes me mad. I've learned Spanish too, but it makes 1 year I haven't practised, so I surely suck at it.

By the way:

And so do you.

It is so epic that it blinded me when I saw your video.

This is SSSOOOO AWWEESSOOMMEE! I need it to code! :o

I hope this will be for asm as useful as visual studio for C[++] ;)

Hello everybody!

This is the first time I join C3. The last time, munchers was sooo.... *gasp* that it decided me this time.

Well, let me present you really miscellaneous stuff.

A patch:

This patch is not a surprise, I've already showed it in the ASM show-off thread with this video:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

And now: release.

A sprite:

This is a sprite I've made for dgbarca for his entry in the recent chocolate contest. It is Cockabird/Needle bird from Seiken Densetsu 3.
In SMW, it flies around horizontally and fire three... things at Mario if he's near.

ExGFX are ripped by dgbarca. No ExGFX are provided for the spit thing, because it is just a copy of birdo's egg.

A video:

Just.. watch it :p

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

Edit: thanks to yogui for putting it in a video, because WMM doesn't like me, or vice versa.

A level:

That makes a while a french smw event took place. The deal was to do a Halloween level hack. But the results of this pseudo-contest never came out, and it was more or less cancelled. So I'm releasing this level, which was never played by anyone: I hope he will find some players here :)
For whose about to play it: the main theme (not the music, meh) is "Bottom of the Well", from TLOZ: OOT.

Thanks for your comments. :)

I knew I was forgetting something. >>Edited the first post.

@Maruhai: it took me about 35h.

I realized most people want to have the 64x64 mega mole instead of the patch itself (xD), so I will be releasing it soon.

35h of work.

So it does... probably 1 month to find 35h of free time to work on it.

I don't know what is frequently asked in english here, but in French, this is a really [too] F.A.Q:

Q: No! I've inserted an ExGFX, and now all my graphics are buggy!

A: No, your graphics are not buggy. Once you have changed one of the GFX files with the 8 slots avaible with the red mushroom icon, you have to make your custom map16 with your ExGFX and replace tiles of your level.

2 #w{<3}

My poor little entry.

Ugh. I completely forgot a name at my level.
So the level is on Yoshi Island 1, and I will call it:
