Tip: The lowest row of 16x16 tiles in a level do not appear, unless the "Allow viewing full bottom row of tiles" box is checked in the #lm{MARIO69} menu. Be mindful of this when designing levels!

The contest sounds good, but it sounds complicated to videotape.

Besides, I don't want to make a Youtube account.

Some dude already has one named "Dipalon"...

So, still not a judge. Right?

My Mario's Deadly Adventure ROM won't work and I don't have a backup.

I need to port:

- Overworld
- Map16
- Levels

I know how to port the levels to a new rom, but what about the overworld and Map16?

Version 0.6, you guys!

Overworld altered, but not completely
Levels altered, a few in particular
Powerups removed from SPRING INTO ACTION
Title screen added
New intro scene lacking a playthrough

Oh, plus it works now.

There's still drama around here?

I haven't seen much of it lately, really.

But I suppose it's for the best.

Good work, staff!

Dude, do you know anything at all about spelling?

And as for my hacking ability...

Try Mario's Deadly Adventure, my super-sweet Kaizo hack!

Now, back to the topic.

Hex editors are complicated and annoying.

Falsehood. More can always be done.

For example, we need MORE SM64 editors.
Toad's Tool just isn't cutting it anymore.

Creating a good hack takes time. Toads Tool is pretty good. Just give us some time and there will be more and more hacks.


I suppose you're right in that we need more time.

But I haven't seen many SM64 hackers.

I myself want to get into hacking SM64, but Toad's Tool looks way too complex.

Originally posted by Flame8765
Toad's Tool 64 is pretty easy to use once you read the readme file and practice using the tool, just like any other program. The "Orbit" camera option is very useful.


False dichotomy. I have done both and it's still too hard for me to use. The "Orbit" camera option is okay, though.

Also keep in mind that hacking a game like Super Mario 64 is more complex than hacking Super Mario World. Instead of simply adding a bunch of 2D images like a paint program, you have to 3D Model your level, texture it, export it, import it in the obj_importer, configure your level's settings, add objects in TT64, and then finally test your level.


Exactly! That's way too much work!

We need a new SM64 editor that can help with those things to make it less tedious.

Originally posted by Flame8765
Not to mention that you have to make six star missions in the level. Multiply that process 20 times and you got yourself a full modification. This is the reason why you're not seeing as many SM64 hacks: it takes a long time to do #ab{:P}
</div></div>

The reason we don't have as many SM64 hacks is because it takes a long time to make them.

That's because the only editor for it sucks more than the Xbox 360.

Yes, it's that bad.

Stacked munchers are a problem, too...

But jumping between muncher after muncher is okay.

It can serve as quite a relief.

You know what bothers me more?

When the hack kills you on the first screen.

Living On The Edge starts by shooting me out of a cannon, and I have no idea how to avoid dying.

When I play a hack, I expect Mario to be standing and for the text box to come up.

NOT TO BE SHOT OUT OF A CANNON.

Do you mean a sprite that scrolls itself or a sprite that scrolls the whole level?

In the case of the latter, you will find sufficent sprites for the job in the Add Sprites window.

He put your server online?

That does not sound illegal.

I suggest you quit whining.

Then, you should hack his HackForums account and remove the server.

Also, you should change his pass just for revenge.

That, OR you make a HackForums account and piss him off with it as payback.

I, for one, agree.

There has been too much drama lately.

I appreciate the staff's noble efforts to tone it down.

Thank you, staff. Thank you.

Well, Youtube has too many videos coming in to check them all.

That would explain why only that video had the copyright notice.

I think that the most likely case will be that nothing happens.

I mean, it's just using the music.

It's not as if you're putting the first two Terminator movies on it.

You probably won't get into any trouble.

It looks like another generic Sonic racing game, but with airplanes.

I think I would rather play another good Sonic game, like Sonic '06.

I think the hack is pretty good.

Despite the muncher spam, cutoff, and blatant edits
which aren't even bad, by the way
, this hack delivers a solid, enjoyable dose of gameplay with a consistent difficulty.

All hacks need work. There's no such thing as perfection.

For if a million people appraise your hack, at least one shall insult it.

The hack is great, but here's a few tips to make it even more amazing:

- Cutoff is not inherently bad, but cutoff is usually a direct result of lazy level-making. Get rid of all cutoff.

- Sprites are not bad, either, but using too many is. Unless the level revolves around a specific sprite, don't use very many sprites.

- The intro is the first thing people see when they try your hack. Make it look special and enjoyable. It's also a good way to show people the effects of any custom blocks in the hack.

- There are too many lives in the first level. It's more than likely that anyone who plays it will use savestates, making lives obsolete.

Some things that aren't really bad, but bother "people" nonetheless:

- Invisible blocks. These show your relentlessness, serving as a diabolical way to tell the player "You will die, no matter what".

- Fake Map16 blocks. These are pretty bothersome, but they can be used to great effectiveness, especially in ghost houses.
i.e. fake doors


- Having death blocks and munchers. That's nice to see a little variety in your death options. You can use munchers for on-the-ground deaths, and use death blocks in the air.

My first hack is Mario's Deadly Adventure, which while still being a better hack (not bragging or anything, just stating fact), still needs quite a bit of work before it can be released.

Sometimes, overworld fixes happen on the ROM, but not in Lunar Magic.

Try playing the ROM by itself and see if the Switch Palace is still there.
