Tip: If you give a Muncher tile custom graphics, it will still act like a coin when a silver P-switch is active, whether it looks like a coin or not. So make sure to use ExAnimation if there's a silver P-switch in the area.Not logged in.

Thank you for reviewing my ROM hack. I appreciate the effort.

You don't approve of it because the sprite placement is lazy, the first stages are too hard (which is the point of the whole ROM hack, by the way), the level design is boring, and the object placement is sloppy and annoying. Please specify where these problems are in the ROM hack and how you think I should fix them. Please provide pictures if you can.

You'll put the video in a zip file, right?

Where exactly can I find them?

Also, will they be viewable by Windows Media Player or will I need to download specific software to watch it?

There's my entry, adequately named Dipalon's AutoMario.

There's a weird visual glitch at one point in the level. I don't know what it is, but it won't show up in Lunar Magic for some reason.


NOTE: To access the level, you need to copy the URL above and paste it into the address bar to go to the AutoMario file. I don't know how to do the link like everybody else does...

Fifteen systems built into one, eh?

It sounds like the ultimate collector's tool.

A price of 1000$ would still be much less than buying all the systems seperately, so the price is actually quite reasonable if you account for that fact.

tl;dr: cool beans

These problems occur fairly often in ROM hacks.

I want to know where the problems are so that Mario's Deadly Adventure 0.5 will be accepted.

Version 0.5 is in my files.

In it, I've replaced most of the munchers with a more tolerable block
(black used block that hurts you if you touch it)

Annoying object placement? Fixed.

Boring level design? I worked on that, but the problem may still remain.

Extreme difficulty in the first stages.

...

Seriously?

Lazy sprite placement...

It's not that I can't think of anything better than "spam Thwomps";
it's that each level has a gimmick. You have to use that gimmick in order to beat the level, and that gimmick usually involves sprites.

The level names are puns giving a hint as to the gimmick in the level.

Oh, and as for the "What Not to Do" video? Could you tell me what I shouldn't have in my hack? I would rather read it than watch it.

The original file is in my files in case you want to try it.

Well... I played your hack and I wonder why this doesn't count as a Kaizo Hack. Unfair tricks like:
- Trapped by invisible Note Blocks so you have to wait until the timer runs out
- Mid-air springboard jumps (Copy pasted a lot)


It's supposed to be extremely hard, so I guess it IS a Kaizo Hack...
What makes you think it does not count as one?

My hack is a Kaizo Hack and it must have been denied for that reason.

Thanks for the advice, you guys!

Version 0.5 is in my files, by the way.

Well, the ROM I patched it with did have an incorrect checksum

See, the problem is that I MADE the ROM hack.

The person who PM'd me about the problem may just have an error in their emulator, but I felt that I should have a second opinion.

I'll take levels 1B4 to 1BF

You see, I'm imagining a sort of maze

I'll make multiple levels of any type if you want

My levels are going to be pretty hard (as I am currently working on Mario's Deadly Adventure and therefore am inclined to make hard levels), so I would recommend you put them in World 8 or 9.

The deadline's May 15th, then?

If we live in a different location where the date is different
(i.e. September 11), do we get until May 15th in our location to make it?

If not, how can we be sure when to turn in our assignments?

It's called a GIMMICK. Each level has a distinct gimmick which it revolves around. If I vary up the levels, then the gimmick is ruined.

The first two levels have the springboard gimmick, but the ones after that don't have any "midair springboard bounces" at all.

(Okay, maybe a few. I haven't checked for 'em.)

Have you gotten through the first three levels?

... Probably not. It IS a Kaizo hack, after all

So, is there anything else to improve on, or is it just that the hack is a Kaizo hack?

Let me know in order for version 0.6 to be accepted.

(Also, I want to make a shop and some bonus levels. Help would be nice)

I'll be a judge, but I was also planning on entering a submission.

Either I can become a judge and the submission is checked by only the other judges (as to avoid bias), or I don't submit the level.

My submission is half-done, with no custom sprites or music.
(I do not know how to make it and the guides are way too confusing)

Still, I hope you can accept me as a judge. I'm pretty impartial.

You should try Mario's Deadly Adventure.

It's currently in beta (version 0.5), but it's ridiculously hard...

Let the creator (read:me) know if you have any suggestions/questions.
