This is going to seem like such a n00bish question, but I'm asking it anyway...

How do I use XKAS? ^^; :blushes:

The reason I ask is because I can't find any XKAS guides anywhere here, and there doesn't seem to be any real "instruction manual".

I downloaded the "no more sprite tile limits" fix thingy, and I want to apply it to my hack. But I don't know how.

I'm using Aiyo's XKAS Simple, by the way.

Thanks, RandomRamen and GuYoNfIr3. But it still didn't solve my sprite memory problem. :(

The level I'm using the patch on has green gas bubbles and Urchins, Eeries, and Fuzzies modified to look like gas bubbles of other colors. With the sprite memory at 0xD, the gas bubbles don't glitch anything, but the Urchins cause Mario's head to get cut off, or the Urchins themselves will have pieces chipped off.

I was told that the patch requires the sprite memory setting to be at 0x10, but at that setting, Mario still gets decapitated at the Urchins and disappears completely in the presence of the gas bubbles!

Am I doing it wrong? D:

Buster Beetle
In the code, there is a section where it says "point this to free space", did you do so? If not, it could have messed up some things or not worked properly.

You mean that default "$168000" thingy in the code WASN'T pointing to free space!?! OH SHI...!!!

That leads me to yet ANOTHER question. What IS "free space"? What does it look like? What does "$168000" mean? Is this number referring to hexadecimal addresses like what I can find in this site's ROM map and in a hex editor, or is it referring to something else???

I'm so confused... O_o

Hey, I got an idea.

Go through my post history. [clicky-clicky! ^^] I think you'll find that I am capable of teaching a class on Layer 2 level building.

As DarthRiko said on one of his Let's Play videos on his YouTube account (I have dial-up, so I can't be bothered to find which one ;_;), Layer 2 levels are underused in many hacks here. So, maybe I could help.

I don't think I could impart my wisdom in a standalone class, though, so I could be an assistant to whoever the teacher is for advanced level building. Also, the classes on ExGFX could contain a few courses on how to edit the Layer 3 backgrounds (the rocks, windows, swimming fish, etc.). I wouldn't be able to teach those, though. D:

So here's my proposal:
Advanced Level Design with Layer 2 Level Designing
  • Course number: LVL 201
  • Prerequisites: Basic Level Design (LVL 101)
  • Corequisites: ASM 101, ExGFX 101, BlockTool and SpriteTool (CSTM 101), AddMusic (CSTM 102), and Translhextion (MATH whatever)
  • Credits: 3
  • Length: One semester
Seriously, though...I love this idea! I could probably make a comic strip or fanfic of it! xD

EDIT: I didn't realize until just now that we had to edit that map. I'm editing right now and won't post until later.

EDIT 2: Here it is! ^^

What the Hell Numbers
Uh... it's too small [._.]

Assuming you're using Firefox, highlight the picture, right click, and go to "View Selection Source" (or something similar). You'll notice I used a "width" attribute in my <img> tag. That scales the picture down. If you right click on the picture again and go to "View Image", you get the full-size image. So, no it's NOT too small. :|

This sounds like fun! I'm already making a new LiveJournal avatar for the occasion which will be linked from here, and a name change will follow shortly. Look for them. ;)

Your description's kinda vague, but I'll try my best.

If you want a Layer 2 level where Layer 2 scrolls up and down:
  • Make sure you're in a horizontal level.
  • If you want to actually TOUCH Layer 2, click the Mario head and make sure your level mode is set to 0x2, 0xF, or 0x1F. Level mode 0x1F will make Layer 2 semi-transparent when it intersects with Layer 1.
  • Also, after clicking on the Mario head icon, set Layer 1 scrolling to "No Vertical Scroll".
  • Make sure you actually have a sprite generator to make Layer 2 do something. In this case, Layer 2 Scroll (sprite 0xEA). (Yes, this seems obvious, but you'd be surprised... ¬_¬)
  • Click on the blue button with the fish swimming and set Layer 2 scrolling to "H-Scroll: Constant, V-Scroll: None".
  • A garbage Layer 3 will occur when you use the Tileset Specific option unless you're in the Castle 1, either Ghost House, or any of the three Underground sets.
  • If you're using Layer 2 Scroll Range 12, click on the door with a 1 icon and set the background's initial position to "BG=00".

I sincerely hoped that any of this helped.

One of the things that always bothers me about Super Mario World 1 is the fact that there are no blue Paratroopas. So, with my latest hack, I'm trying to change that.

But when I try to tweak the horizontal red Paratroopa sprite (sprite 0x0B) using Tweaker and SpriteTool, I get problems. I'm able to change the guy's palette to a blue shell, but when I stomp on him, he acts like a red Koopa. And a red Koopa pops out of the blue shell! D:

So, how do I edit the sprite so that I get actual blue Koopas?

I didn't find one.

It worked!!! Well, after I used Tweaker to change its palette to make it look like a proper blue Koopa, anyway. ^^ Thanks, Count Crotchula! :D

[clicky-clicky! ^^] There's mine. It's called "Abandoned Mine Shaft", and it's, well, an abandoned mine shaft-type level...I hope that's okay. ._.

It's accessible from level 0x105 (Yoshi's Island 1).

I fixed as many bugs as I could. This level is copypasta'ed over from my main hack, so you may see it again if I submit it here. However, it's a cave in the hack, as opposed to a Ghost House here.

EDIT: ZOMG!!! So happy!!! ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^ I grew to Level 3! I'm an unshelled Red Koopa now! Now I can turn around when I come to ledge edges instead of walking off of them! YAY!!! :D :D :D :D :D

Drew Carey on The Price is Right's 37th season premiere
This is why we've lasted so long... Because the crowd's like THIS!

Golden Road.net was raising bloody hell about the firing of some guy named Roger Dobkowitz from The Price is Right, and they even went so far as to shut the site down out of emotion, causing an uproar within the rest of the game show community. It was so much fun watching them squirm! xD

When Drew Carey made that quote, that told me that, even though he never explicitly named Golden Road.net at all throughout the episode, he was nonetheless aware of the situation. Thus further reinforcing why I like him over Bob Barker (Bob, claiming to be computer-illiterate, acted like he never even knew Golden Road.net existed). ^^

Crap.

Somehow I knew I'd lose.

Then again, I half-assed everything, so it's only natural! xD

Isn't Mattan's hack "Mario Wakes Up"? Damn, that was pretty scary for a Super Mario World 1 hack! I actually got a nightmare after playing it! D:

Congratulations to both him and KC for winning in both categories, as well as Blue Rabbit and WhiteYoshiEgg for winning in their respective categories. And props to the rest of us who entered for playing. ^^

I kinda sorta like it. Looks fun. ^^

The one thing I REALLY like about the system is how you can "fly" by spending 10 points to use another jump while in the air. That was a work of genius. However, I think you should find a way to implement the Cape Feather in the mana system. Maybe, say...2 points to go into the air, with another 2 spent each time you fly up while your cape is open. And, obviously, you'd be forced to land when you run out. Just a suggestion... ^^

ExGFX.

Specifically, I'd really like DK Country 3's mountain levels background, with the palette for Krevice Kreepers or Kong Fused Cliffs.

There's a glitch with this Layer 2 object in my hack...

...that shows up perfectly fine in Lunar Magic! D:

What's going on?

It didn't work. x(

I had thought about doing that earlier...problem is, it's a piece of land that appears cut off! Item memory index is for coins and stuff, isn't it?
