I know a patch is not really a hack, but I want to know what you think of it. As the name says, this patch changes Mario's GFX to Pokey's GFX (The cactus thing that appears in the title screen of SMW). I didn't change the Graphics for flying with a cape and riding Yoshi. Tell me if you liked the GFX or not and what I should change. You can download it at www.eric-kaiser.de/pokeygfxchange.zip and in the patch section (but not yet, the Submit button didn't seem to work). Here are some screenshots:
I'm glad you liked it. To me it sounded like you thought this is a completely new hack (It's just SMW with Pokey as the main charater). But since I have finished the GFX change (more or less), I'm really going to make a hack out of it. Also I didn't know there is already a hack with Pokey, thank you for telling me.
You're right, the ducking sreenshot is with a big pokey. But when Pokey is small, it's not really different from this, it's just a little bit smaller.
Good level. Not the best, but really not bad. I tried to change Mario's GFX to Rex's GFX myself, but that didn't look so good. So I decided to make a patch with Pokey's GFX, and now I'm making a hack with Pokey as the main character. Anyway, with good Graphics for Rex (and maybe some ExGFX), this sure will be an interesting hack. Keep it up.
After the patch that changes Mario to Pokey, I'm going to make a hack with Pokey as the main character. I wanted to post a video of the first level here, but it still takes a while to upload. So you can download a picture of the first level here: Click!
And a little sreenshot:
This time, I want to make a really good hack, so please tell me everything that you liked or didn't like! Do you think the palettes are good? (I made the foreground a bit darker so it can be seen better) Are there enough or too many enemies? At what about the level design?
I will post a video later in this thread, maybe you can tell me any graphical glitches or other things then.
In German you can build words that are as long as you want because you don't have to put spaces between the single words. Most of them are not in the dictionary, but anyway...
And there's one word with two triple letters that is in the German dictionary: "Flussschifffahrt". I think it means "river navigation".
