Tip: You can use Lunar Magic's Overworld Layer 3 Editing system to edit or create your own layer 3 images (castle bricks, fish, rocks) and apply unique effects per level via the Layer 3 Bypass in the main editor.
I don`t know is that the right forum, but I have a question. I`ve seen some videos tutorials for Lunar Magic, in which the toolbar has icons from the patch Super Mario World Redrawn. I don`t know is it a special version, or an Easter Egg. Can you tell me how to do it?
Edit (07/22/16): If it wasn't plainly obvious, this is my first post. Please note that it was made in 2011, over 5 years ago (as of 2016). Back then I could not speak English well and I was generally really dumb. If you're reading through my posts, expect nothing but childish remarks for the first couple of pages. Please do not let said pages influence your general idea of me, as I am completely different now. Thank you.
So, I'm using Lunar Magic 1.90 and XKas GUI. I imported the Darken Pause and The Goal Fade Remove patches. Everything is in free space. The only problem is that the game freezes evey time a custom sprite comes in-screen. And yes - I'm sure that nothing's glitched, because I'm using a newly-imported free space. Can you tell me what's the problem? Thanks in advance!
Let me help you. So firt, download Lunar Expand and the Free Space Logger (Slogger). Download the normal version of XKas. Expand your ROM with Lunar Expand and then drag it on the slogger icon. Look in the created text file. Look up in "Size". Search where it says "0x8000". That is free space. Copy the LoROM offset and pase it into the patch, where it says point that to some free space. Open CMD and navigate to the directory where XKas is. It's better if you have the "Open Command Promopt" command in the right-click menu. Into CMD, type in "xkas.exe PatchName.asm ROMName.smc". Using that trick, you can apply even 5 patches, that need free space.
Hi there! Can you help me with something? How can I change the player to Luigi and only Luigi? Like, the name on the top, the palette, the "MARIO START!" text? If it needs ASM, then just tell me the codes. I'm not posting this as a suggestion, because it's multiple things. Credit will be given to everyone helped me.
P.S.: I will apply the "One OR two players only" patch.
013DB $00:91DB 1 byte ASM Change it to D0 to switch the "Mario/Luigi Start"
For palettes, I don't know of a simpler way other than overwriting the other palette.
For the status bar, use Status Effect, selecting the right palette and overwrite the old 'MARIO' in place for 'LUIGI'.
e: For the palettes you could try using a hex editor, and replace all values under Mario with Luigi's values:

034F0 $00:B2F0 20 bytes Palette Fire Mario's palette
03504 $00:B304 20 bytes Palette Fire Luigi palette. Colours 6-F of palette 8 while fire Luigi.
So, I will change the text, but I don't understand anything. Can you just tell me to where to jump to and what to change? Thanks in advance!
Isn't easier to copy Luigi's palette in LM and paste it to a level without custom palettes? I think it'll be much easier and you won't screw up something.
Okay, so here is what I did:
1. I copied Luigi's palettes into Mario's palettes.
2. I changed his name in the status bar.
3. I changed "x13DB" to "D0". Now it says "LUIGI START!"
4. I applied the One Player Only patch.
Now, Luigi works perfectly fine! Thank you for all of you help! Admins, feel free to close this thread.
The Rom is already expanded. I already inserted 7 blocks in it, that's why i wonder why this problem occures.
7 blocks? That's why the problem occurs. When you insert custom blocks, they go somewhere in the ROM. You just ran out of Free Space. Try using Lunar Expand and everything will be OK.
just wondering but how does 7 blocks force you to run out of freespace?
i doubt those take up anymore then a 20 bytes each, then again, i dont know much about byte sizes
Well, 7 blocks are too many. 2 or 3 will not cause a problem, but 7? Oh, and if they're some kind of exented, then there's no doubt on that you ran out of Free Space. Specially if you've applied XKas patches.
Hi there! I accidentally used Map16 Page 2 for custom tiles. The problem is, that I know you must leave that page alone. Well, I can move everything, but I have some custom blocks and that will be a problem. I've heard somewhere that there is a way to disable the special bahavior of Page 2. Can you tell me what the key combination was? Thanks in advance!
P.S.: Everything's bahaving and looking propertly, but I want to be sure nothing will mess up.
Yeah grey block spamming doesn't look too good... Well you should use the SMW logs for the airship, maybe change their palette to a dark brown instead of having them yellow. But I like the set up of the status bar =)
So, there's an airship tileset in the ExGFX section? Good to hear it! I'm also glad that you like the status bar!
