Tip: Make sure that ALL exit-enabled pipes, doors, etc. have a screen exit defined, or they'll take you to Level 0, the "endless" bonus game. Unless Start+Select is enabled, the only way out of it is to reset the game.
I don't know if this is a FIXME or not but in Green Valley are you supposed to be able to pick up the Pow Block seen here? It's a great hack but I'd really like to know if that POW block is able to be used or if it's just there for what they call "eye candy" for the game, that and the fact that some of the friends I sent this too was also wanting to know.
I enjoyed the hack at first, until I discovered something that really got under my skin:
THERE ARE TWO MAJOR BUGS IN THIS HACK!!
1. After Luigi has 7 hearts, the remaining hearts never register. So Luigi can have 7 hearts max.
2. While "hang gliding" with the cape, Luigi is vulnerable to anything. I tested it numerous times. Instead of turning into a default spinjump after getting hit while "hang gliding" with the cape, Luigi automatically loses the cape power up.
Great great romhack... definitely not perfect by any means. Some annoying parts that required some save state abuse for me but overall really great hack. Packed full with excellent music and wonderful mashups of enemies and levels/themes from other great games like Metroid. Most of the levels had cool design with the exceptions mainly comimg very late in the game. Certainly fun and worth checking out.
A few bugs:
Some levels had glitched graphics, most notably "Open Sea!", which was completely glitched;
If you complete a level with the timer under 100, the music sometimes keeps playing faster, even after completing the level.
Other than that, it was a fun challenge, and the end screen really made me laugh out loud.
Great hack so far untill i encountered a glitch at castle 2. it trew me off for a few days i couldn't enter the level, well i could but i would die as soon as the level started. So downloaded diffrent rom to patch with, played trough all the levels again castle 2 still glitched but it was playable. I can send you a image if you want but don't know if links are allowed cause i just joined to tell you there is a bug at caslte 2.
I also softlocked at the red switch palace and it deleted my safe data.. So basically i've been playing trough it for 3 times now.:p
Which means a great hack. Very well designed from what i've seen so far.
I preferred ips much more better.. now with bps I had to search for a clean rom as I didn't know at first but I figured it out
with the ips patched I would need to load the rom into "Lunar Magic" and it would tell me a msg about adding headers or something and then I would just save the rom as is after, and use that new headered rom for the ips patched..
but now i just learned that for the bps patch you need to have a clean untouched rom without the extra added headers from Lunar Magic, and also the bps patches seems to be creating a new file for the output patched rom, rather than overwritting the current rom.
