This project sounds great. I want to help however I can.

In my opinion, Level Design > Artwork > Overworld Design.

So let me know what I can help with if you need anything.

I'm also a beta tester, just saying.

Good luck with the hack!

I read that document, and I can't find "AllGFX.bin"

I've exxtracted the GFX like it says, but still.

Let's tackle the issues one by one here.



You do nothing for most of this screen.

In addition, the coins shouldn't be invisible in the first place.

There's no point in putting a P-Switch and using P-Switch activated coins here.

You should replace the invisible coins with regular ones.

The P-Switch should also be deleted.

To make the screen less boring, add a koopa that kicks a shell on top of that concrete T.



There are a tad too many coins here.

There's also a bit of cutoff on that second mushroom.

I suggest that you remove the munchers and the second mushroom, leaving just a pit.

Also, you may want to rethink how many coins you put.

Picture link due to not wanting to stretch the tables

Here, you do nothing for almost five whole screens.

Why are there even stars?

I suggest you replace the platform with a couple grinders, turning it into a grinder-dodging star run.

Adding some pits would be nice, too.



More waiting here.

Add some enemies here, maybe some Parakoopas or something.



That bridge is cutoff.

Fix the bridge and add a mushroom for it to end with.



Why is that music block invisible?

Normally, I'm a fan of invisible blocks, but in games, everything has a purpose.

Doing that is like giving Mario a frog suit in a hack where there is no water.



Why have that grey platform?

You're dead as soon as you land on it.

Also, that plant is garbled.

Replace it with a jumping one or something.



I think that this is from the original game...

That's everything I have to say, really.

Good luck with the hack!

There's no reason to tell us what we already know.

Anyways, yea that note block is so you can jump up there and that grey platfrom isn't the type that falls if you're wondering.


Ah. I couldn't really tell. Thanks, dude!

Adding some enemies here and there would improve the level design, but honestly it would probably be better to just restart.


I agree with putting more enemies around, but he shouldn't restart.

It's not nearly bad enough for him to restart.

He just needs to keep working on it and making it better and better.

I feel that how the level feels can only be derived from playing it.

That's why it's bad to judge a hack based only on screenshots.

Not only is this completely worthless for giving a solution that anyone with common sense would've done beforehand for inspiration, it makes you look like a jerk, and you're too lazy to come up with any real ideas to offer for improving the hack. If you're just going to say this, keep your hands off the keyboard. All you do is make the author feel like crap and make SMWC look bad.

My point is that WHY IS IT INVISIBLE?

You should make that music block visible because there is no reason for it to be invisible.

If it's invisible so that the player will hit it unexpectedly and die (which I find hilarious and fully endorse), then that's fine.

If it's invisible to hide a reward from the player (i.e. an invisible 1-UP block), then I agree with that usage as well.

All that music block accomplishes by being invisible is making you jump around for a few seconds until you find it.

There's really not much of a reason for that to be invisible.

Either make it visible, or just lower the next platform and remove the music block altogether.

The hack certainly looks impressive, and it'll definitely get on SMWCentral.

The overworld itself does not appear to be changed much, so I suggest you change it.

Other than that minor issue, it's a wonderful hack!

Good job!

The music is good, and the level design is great.

I like the new health meter.

I like how the timer switches colors, too.

What I don't like is that the rocks and midway point float in midair.

I mean, it just looks odd.

You put pits that you could walk over.

I understand the message of faith, but that completely destroys the point of pits.

Let me elaborate.

Imagine I put an invisible block just in front of a ledge with the intention of making you hit it and fall down (which is hilarious).

So I make a level with that concept and put it on SMWCentral.

SMWCentral says that the block should be marked, so I mark it.

Everybody who plays will know that there's an invisible block there.

They'll avoid it instead of hitting it and falling down like I intended.

There's no more point to having that block there.

Invisible blocks are meant to be invisible. Otherwise, they're just blocks.

Pits are meant to be pits. You should be able to fall in them.

I understand that you're sending a message here, but it's like how SMWCentral demands the block be marked in the example above.

If you can walk over pits, why put pits in the first place?

I am left to assume that the hack has a deeper meaning (your message is probably that people who believe in faith are little more than blind sheep, doing ridiculous things because they believe that they can).

Is that what you meant?

If not, you've done something wrong. Very, very wrong.

The custom decorations and such were very well-made, however.

Another issue is the big boo ring.

It's been improved by adding Boos, but that just makes you switch directions a lot while you wait.

It's not a long wait, and it really isn't much of an issue, but I would suggest replacing the big boo ring with something else altogether (maybe a hill or some growing/shrinking pipes).

All in all, the hack is excellent, but it has some errors that could be easily fixed.

Good work and good luck.

The palettes here are extremely bright and the level itself here is bland and straight. I suggest you correct both of these problems.


To be fair, the original Super Mario World intro was also quite linear.

I don't know about bland, but the level being straight isn't a big deal.

I agree on the palettes, however. They are a tad too light.

Group 3:
No offense but you should really scrap the remakes and start fresh levels.


Why? The levels aren't bad, and remaking something often improves it.

Originally posted by Everest
In main world levels, remakes are a no and cheapen the originality of the entire hack.


While they do make the hack less original, remakes still aren't that bad.

If remakes were really "a no", Nintendo wouldn't have remade Super Mario Bros for Super Mario All-Stars, including a graphics upgrade, sprite change, sound upgrade, and glitch removal.

They also wouldn't have remade it on Super Mario Bros. Deluxe with additional content, as a Game and Watch in 1983, as a Nintendo Mini Classic in 1998, or in the Super Mario All Stars remake titled Super Mario All Stars Super Mario World.

I'm not even going to mention the "New" Super Mario Bros. series.

Remakes are fine with Nintendo, so they should be fine with us.

Originally posted by Everest
One remake would be acceptable in a secret world.


What exactly is the difference between putting it in a secret world and putting it in the main world?

Originally posted by Everest
We have played remakes thousands of times, no need to torture players and make them uninterested here.


Wait, did you say "We"?

I was never involved in that decision, and I doubt anybody other than yourself was.

The problem there is that you are assuming that everybody in a certain group (i.e. everyone on this site) shares your opinion on the matter.

Your opinion is that remakes are torture and that they make you uninterested?

I don't share that opinion (look at my Nintendo example).

I don't play many remakes, and they don't torture me one bit.

What I'm saying is that you should not have used "we". You should have used "I", because you are not talking about anyone else.

Group 5:
In most of the levels of the special world here, you seemed to have spammed sprites in just plain levels. I know better can be done so try to improve them.


I find that the levels are well-designed and that only a few of them "seemed to have spammed sprites in just plain levels". Everest is right and it should be fixed, but it's not that bad.


This level in particular is an issue.

Originally posted by Everest
Fix those issues and it should be a decent hack.


A decent hack?

To be honest, the hack is already excellent.

When she fixes these issues, it'll be even better!

Not much design has been done on the project, and the story is the only thing finished at the moment.

I actually came up with the story, but I don't want to sound like I'm bragging or anything. Just saying.


This hack will likely take quite a while to complete, so stay tuned!

Now.
This level design is repetitive.
Extremely repetitive. And frustrating.
Extremely frustrating.

For example:

Step 1: get screwed by invisiblocks (AKA makes you frustrated and makes people feel bad about this hack)
Step 2: jump on the red koopas/bullet bills, then, with NO warning at all, springboard falls.(AKA what the above note says)
Step 3: Repeat (also some random other obstacles but its 90% the above)

The repetition also makes it boring and not make the player want to go any further in the hack.
Extremely boring.

Now compare it to yours.
Now, we know that you just started making hacks, but a quality kaizo hack is not like cat Mario, or like IWBTG.

You're the one who attacked him.

I didn't make you attack him or encourage it.

So you didn't get banned because of me.

What I was doing unintentionally influenced you in such a way as for you to get yourself banned.

Why are you lying like this?

Anyways, this is a server about Mario's Deadly Adventure, not how I presumably "spammed Daizo's site".

So if we're going to keep discussing this, it should be through PMs.

Ah, so you think I spammed your personal site because of your criticism.

To be fair, it's not really your personal site.

Other people are involved and it is open to the public.

It's more of a public site in which you are a staff member.

I didn't do anything with the intention of getting you banned.

You got yourself banned and you blamed it on me.

You weren't mean to me. You were just a critic.

It makes sense for you to think that, since the only interaction I've really had with you is getting you to judge my hack.

Your review isn't even relevant anymore, since the latest version has changed significantly from the old one you reviewed.

To be honest, I appreciate your review.

Thank you.

DDV has even told you how to improve and you're going to treat him like this? And this all proves that you can't take criticism. Have a good day.


Okay, that's enough of that. None of you think I can take criticism?

Here's evidence to the contrary.

If you download the latest version of MDA, you'll notice that most of it has been taken care of.

(don't know ExGFX or why there's invisible water there)

There's enough drama here, so if there's anything else you want to tell me, tell me via PM.

Akireyano's right about someone getting banned if this keeps up.
Daizo Dee Von started it, so he's more likely to get banned, but it doesn't matter. We could all get banned.
