It's kind of wierd, because people keep saying the same things. half the posts are talking about using smb3 and YI graphics.
anyway, something thats overused? Not using map 16. It's extremely underused, even though it's a really useful feature. I'm not saying go out and remake hacks 101, I'm just saying use it to your advantage.
This is problably my favorite anime. I'm in to that random crazy shenanigans. (problably why I watch raocow)
I remember one of my favorite parts was when they put Soften into the house they made as a brick. and then Soften was repeating over and over "I'm not a brick"
Then theres that time where the team was at that theme park. where they went into the childrens playground place where they were turned into little kids. and poppa rocks (Donpatch) had the guns and grenades and stuff. it was that kind of stuff that made my life worth living. how the show could be cancled, I don't know.
I've been reading the manga and it's really good. I watched an episode on youtube but really didn't think it was too good.
I like the overall storyline and how cool the different locations are. each book has something new. and you have to admit CLAMP can draw really well. My favorite character is problably Fay. he's nice, lay'd back, and keeps you wondering. a pretty cool concept is that characters from different mangas are in it but they have different minds to fit in with the alternate worlds theme. finally, Mokona = Kawaii ^^
I had an idea for a boss once. basically you walk into a little construct and you are at the top. it's a small room with a one block hole filled with a block only passable by sprites. (a.k.a a no mario block) the ceiling is made of turn blocks. kamek is there shooting magic, and you have to get ... it to shoot the turn blocks in order to get a weapon. however these turn blocks will not always have a koopa and will have anything that is one block wide and dosn't have glitched graphics in the tileset it's in. below is a path that goes back and forth that is made of death blocks that lead to a small room with holes on eather side that the shell will go down after hitting the boss. 3-5 hit's kills it, and it may or may not attack. heck it could even be a replacement of kamek. now a picture of what I am thinking of
God Youtubes userbase is horrible.
One time I commented on a video of this really bad Mario hack. and though it was hard, I was polite and didn't go off and say "THIS IS F***IN HORRIBLE!" I just pointed out stuff like the classic "cuttof between pipes and water" and "floating munchers" and "wow, it must be super muncher galaxy *points to a muncher cloud*"
and then someone says:
"Dude, give the gut *guy* a break. this is really cool. speaking of cool, I downloaded SONIC THE HEDGEHOG for free at www.stupidpornwebsite(DOT-COM)."
it sounds confusing but probably isnt when its actually set into motion. Anyways like I said I just kinda thought of the idea that way. it it COULD come real. itd just require lots of ASM. also since theres lot of GFX the 2 battles are in seperate "rooms"
but you gotta admit its a pretty awesome idea no?
Yah, that would be a pretty epic boss.
another idea ive had is something like a collection quest where you have to find certain items that are sometimes dropped by enemies
I will continue on to describe certain levels and worlds that I am considering using in my hack :
a mine based in a volcano that where the farther you go, the more dangerous it becomes to the point where there are huge blocks of lava floating in midair with thin streams of molten rock making barriers for poor mario.
the next is a tall construct that would remind you of a jungle gym. it's extremely high up and falling would be fatal. especially on top of mount sky high. it is the gateway to the clouds. however it is unfinished! so you must press the switch that builds the rest of the tower. the only problem is it's in the heart of the lava infested mine in the mountain. I'll put more in later.
