Super Mario World Random Revolution: First Blood DEMO



This is a DEMO of my new Super Mario World hack, It is a collab project that includes several changes. I won't give a lot of details about Lore and all of that, but basically It is based in Only Prerrender Graphics Style, for now i only included DKC because It is the easier to do, but on the future It will include content of others games like NSMB or Killer Instinct.

This project is a small hack of only 13 levels and shows all the potential of Dynamic Z, Dyzen and Player Revolution Patch.

Some Months later after release the final version of this hack, all resources of the hack will be released, that will include:

-More than 60 Dynamic Sprites.
-10 or more Custom Bosses.
-2 or 3 Custom Players.
-Rips, Sound Effects, etc...




Credits:

ASM and Direction: anonimzwx
Sprites: anonimzwx and Codfish
Level Design: anonimzwx, Codfish and Metal Yoshi
Graphics: Codfish and Metal Yoshi
Title Screen: Metal Yoshi, anonimzwx

I know that the hack has a lot of glitches or bugs that i will fix later, but i didn't have enough time to finish all.
I was almost 4 days without sleep to finish it.


Controls:


B = Normal Jump

A = Spin Jump

L during air = Ground Pound

If mario Touch a Wall While pressing Y or X and the direction of the wall, it does Wall Grab and it can do a Wall Jump.

2 or 3 Consecutives Jumps at Max Speed = Double or Triple Jump.

Advisement: All flickering of the hack is caused by Sample Stream System, not for Dynamic Z. The version without Mario Voices doesn't have flickering.

Player Revolution Patch

This is a Patch to have custom players, you can have up to 127 differents Custom Players, for now it works as a Patch but i will transform It into a Tool similar to Pixi. It allows to change:

-Player Physics.
-Player Hitbox.
-Player Carry Item Routine.
-Player Hurt Routine.
-Player Dead Routine.
-Player Graphic and Dynamic Routine. Player can be of any size (recommended of 48x48 or less)

This patch Requires Dynamic Z to work, because It uses Dynamic Z Player Features to change Dynamic Routine and Palettes of player. It is very experimental for now, when it is finished it will be uploaded to Tool Section.

Dynamic Z V3.75 Beta 3

Dynamic Z is a Game Changer patch, It allows severals features for Graphic, Tilemap and Color Palette Change. It also include support for new Dynamic Sprites.

It Includes:
-Dynamic Sprite Support: Sprites that loads their graphics when is needed to the VRAM.

-Semi-Dynamic Sprite Support: Similar to Dynamic sprites but they load all their frames to VRAM when they are loaded to the level, Very useful for sprites without a lot of frames because you can select where load the palette and where load the graphics allowing you several types of differents sprites per level.

-Shared Dynamic Sprites: It is similar to Dynamic Sprites but all Shared Dynamic Sprites shares the same animation. This allows dynamic sprites that doesn't have restrictions of the number that you can put on the screen.

-Mixed Shared Dynamic Sprites: It is a variation of Shared Dynamic Sprites that is useful for sprites that have an animation that almost always is used, They doesn't have restriction on the number that you can use on the screen. Basically they are Shared Dynamic Sprites during Idle animation and Regular Dynamic Sprites for others animations.

-Dynamic Graphic Change.

-Dynamic Tilemap Change.

-Dynamic Color Palette Change.

-Several features for Color Palette change including: Change hue, Saturation and Value of color palette, also Mix colors on the palette with a base Color.

-Player Features: Optimize Dynamic Routine of Player loading its graphics or palettes only when is needed saving a lot of cycles during NMI. Also allows to Disable Player Dynamic Routine to do your own Dynamic Routine, having any graphics or color palette for Player Player.

All Dynamic Sprite Features are allowed for Normal, Cluster, Extended and Overworld Sprites.

Why Dynamic Z is far superior than DSX?

1. Dynamic Z doesn't use a buffer, then it is a lot faster because doesn't require to load Graphic to a buffer and then load graphics to VRAM. It loads the graphics directly to VRAM. This saves a lot of cycles and reduce a lot of slowdown of Dynamic Sprites.

2. Dynamic Z only loads to VRAM the minimum amound of data possible. It doesn't use Fixed Sizes and Dyzen optimize the GFX to minimize the number of OAM Tiles and VRAM used. Here an example of Klump GFX.



3. Dynamic Z only loads the frames of sprites when they change. It doesn't load Frames each frame like DSX. This save a lot of cycles during nmi and reduce a lot the flickering.

4. Dynamic Z Has more support than DSX. Because Dynamic Z has Dyzen and with Dyzen you can do Dynamic Sprites in very short time. You just need a Sprite Sheet and the tool rip the graphics for you.

5. Dynamic Z allows a lot more sprites than DSX. By default Dynamic Z allows the double of Dynamic Sprites than DSX, now if you disable vanilla exanimation and use an uber asm to change some parameters of Dynamic Z, You can have up to 48 16x16 tiles for dynamic sprites on SP3 and SP4, With vanilla exanimation you can have up to 32 16x16 tiles.

6. Dynamic Z doesn't use fixed sizes for sprites, Each sprite request a number of tiles to use, and that number of tiles is the minimum possible for them.

7. Dynamic Z Has autodefragmentation system, this means that sprites try to use the minimum space in VRAM and the space used by dynamic sprites is compacted to use the lowest possible.

8. Dynamic Z allows dynamic sprites to load their palette dynamically and select what palette number use.

9. Dynamic Z allows you to select what space of SP3 or SP4 use for dynamic sprites, also you can select the size of the space for dynamic sprites.

10. Dynamic Z allows sprites to use color palettes effects like the effects showed on the DEMO.

11. Dynamic Z includes a tool to insert Dynamic resources such graphics, tilemaps or palettes. This allows an easier and standarized way to insert those resources and avoid "extra patches" to insert graphics for dynamic sprites that requires more than 1 bnk of graphics.

12. Dynamic Z has a tool to select its features and insert it easier on the ROM.

13. Dynamic Z will have a lot more sprites than DSX in the future (just think that just in this C3 i am releasing 14 sprites, in Sprite sections there are only 29 Dynamic Sprites)

14. Dynamic Z allows also variations of dynamic sprites like shared dynamic sprites, mixed dynamic sprites and semi-dynamic sprites.

15. Dynamic Z also can be used for dynamic graphic/palettes/tilemaps change.

16. Dynamic Z smells like lemon.

17. DSUX


Here an Example of potential of Dynamic Z, This is a boss of Wyatt's Casio Mario World. It was made with version V3.7:



V3.75 is a lot better than V3.7.

Thanks to Wyatt to allows me to show that on my thread.

Also Codfish was doing some experiments with Dynamic Z (Also Helped me with some sprites, Krusha and gnawty was coded between me and Codfish)



DOCUMENTATION ABOUT INSTALLATION AND USE SOON.

Dyzen for Dynamic Sprites Beta 1

This is a Tool to do Graphic, Dynamic, Animation and Hitbox Routine for sprites.

It Auto Rip Sprite Sheets in format "png" of 15 colors + 1 of transparency (Alfa 0)

With this tool you can do Dynamic Sprites in less of 5 mins if you have a Sheet.

Download Link





Dyzen for Normal Sprites V1.0.0.5

It is basically the old Dyzen for Normal Sprites but compatible with Pixi, then you don't need to transform the sprite from giepy to Pixi.

Download Link

Dyzen Thread with Workshops

Sprite Release

I will Upload 14 Sprites this C3, all of them use Dynamic Z. Today I will upload 8 of them, the others I will upload during the C3.

Now you will need to put this Routines of Pixi to use them:

Routines

Those are routines that you must put on Pixi's routines folder.

Also you must add this to the folder "Pixi/asm/ExtraDefines" folder:

Extra Defines

DKC Contact Effect



It is a Cluster Effect that appears when the player touch one enemy, It is used for all the Dynamic Sprites, It is optional. To Display it, you must use the routine %DisplayContactEffect() from a sprite code after a Player Interaction. It will calculate the position to spawn the effect and display it. Check the routine DisplayContactEffect.asm. You must set the Cluster ID used for the sprite.

Code
!ContactEffect = $00 ;IF Of the cluster Sprite
!UseDefaultStarEffect = 1 ;0 = DKC effect, 1 = smw effect


Usage:
Code
	LDA #$XX			;00 = Spawn the effect always
					;01 = Spawn the effect when player is not flashing
	%DisplayContactEffect()			


By default the routine just spawn the vanilla White Star, you must put 1 to spawn the Cluster instead.

DKC's Zingers



An iconic enemy of Donkey Kong Country, It is a special kind of Dynamic Sprite, actually it is a Mixed Dynamic Sprite, This system is a bit experimental, but basically It is a system that allows a very big number of Dynamic Sprites if they fulfill some conditions, basically sprites that use almost always the same animation except in some specific cases can share an idle animation, then they acts as Shared Dynamic Sprites when they are in Idle animation but they Acts like Regular Dynamic Sprites during others animations, this allows to skip a lot of Dynamic Sprite Limitations and have a lot of them on the screen.

I was not sure to upload this sprite because It is very complex to use, but basically It has a movement System that allows millions of differents types of movements like:

-Circle
-Spiral
-Ellipse
-Follow Player in X, Y or Both Axys
-Wave Movement
-Arc Movement
-A lot of others indescriptible movements

Unagi from SM64



This was the entry of the Mad Scientist First Round. Unagi is an enemy of SM64. It includes 2 versions:

-Wall Unagi (Unagi.asm): It waits on the background wall and attacks player when it is near.

-Swiming version (Unagi2.asm): Its a version similar to a blurp that swims following player in Y Axys.
If it is out of a water level, it just keeps in the same space like if it is out of water.

For Wall Unagi you can customize the "Cool Down Time" after attack on the ".asm":

Originally posted by README

!AttackMaxTime = $20


Megaman X's Hotario



This was is my favorite. I wasn't very sure to upload it, It was my entry on Mad Scientist Contest Second Round, it is a very complex sprite that can be used for a whole level gimmick.

Originally posted by README

This version of Hotario has the following features:

-Makes all BG/FG Color Palette Darker.
-Display a Light Trail Effect.
-The Light Trail reveal hidden platforms.
-Blue Light Trail makes player very Slow.
-Red Light Trail makes player very Fast.
-Can go in 4 directions (Up, Down, Right and Left)
-Has 2 modes, one mode just cross the screen, the other mode stay on screen permanent.
-Autoscroll Screen to right, up or Down.
-Hidden Platform has a very high amount of movement options.


The platform in the same way than my Zingers, use my movement system then it is very flexible.

I dont know, i just did this because i was bored.
I remember you showing this off in the SMWCP2 channel while waiting for something to program. You've outdone yourself with this ASM hack, anoni!
Come help save Super Mario World Central Production 2 here!
Finally, about time! This is truly awesome, man! Can't wait to check it out!

--------------------
My Mode 0 guide.

My Discord server. It has a lot of archived ASM stuff, so check that out!

It's great to see this being released! It'll be interesting seeing what sort of crazy stuff people do with the Player Revolution Patch.

--------------------
My Hacks:
Mario's Strange Quest V1.6
Yoshi's Inside Story (on hold)
Yoshi's Strange Quest V1.3 / V1.3.1 Beta 4.6 / Latest Test Build (Mario & Yoshi's Strange Quests)

Other stuff:
My SMW/SMAS/SMAS+W disassembly
Yoshifanatic's Discord Server: A place for fans of my stuff and/or Yoshi to chat with others.
I'm super excited for these tools. We really needed a re-imagining of sprite creation, and this might be the answer to our prayers!

This has so damn much potential it's crazy.
Easily the most impressive ASM thread thus far. This hack that you're working on seems to be the hack that is more distant to the vanilla Super Mario World than any other hack we've ever seen and these tools are extremely powerful. Great Work
Ngl, this kind of reminds me of a bootleg except made in a actually competent manner for some reason lol; think it's probably due to some of the animations and sprites honestly

Otherwise yeah, this is pretty good haha; seeing something like this in SMW especially is really nice, and I can't wait to see how others would be able to use this tool as well :P

Thanks guys :D. I am uploading a lot of stuff to the thread, i was like 3 hours doing the post. Still not Finished, now i am uploading the sprites.

Holy shit, this is just unbelievable, i can't believe this was done in SMW. Just wow.
My Hack - Beta Testing
Now you're playing with POWER. Really neat tools. I may try to use them someday, once I understand better the basics of ASM. Overall, I shall play your demo hack soon. #smrpg{:3}
this is some very impressive stuff. i expect to see lots of cursed sprites in the future (in a good way)!

I was trying to beat the boss without save states/rewinds, I got a game over because of his super long jump and sometimes I jump on him and I take damage, and later this happened when I lost all HP after continuing, the game froze:

Sadly the demo has some glitches and bugs that I must fix. That "interaction" bug is very weird and i am still trying to find why it happends.

About "take damage when you jump over it". That only should happends when It is red, Red = If you touched it, you get damage.

Very impressive demo. It's hard to believe that that's still Super Mario World. I hope that Dynamic Z and all its components will prove useful as well, especially if the new system is faster than dsx.asm. In particular, Dyzen should make setting up graphics routines for sprites with a lot of different XY offsets a lot less of a hassle, which is certainly handy. Does the tool generate or require a specific graphics routine, or does it just give you the data to use as you please? I'm curious about the animation and hitbox creation options, too. I'll definitely have to test those tools out later.

Dynamic Z is a lot faster than DSX, because Dynamic Z Doesn't use a buffer like DSX, also allows a lot more dynamic sprites on the screen, allows you to upload the palette of the sprite dynamically, it is a lot more safe than dsx, tbh it is like 100000 times better than DSX. I will do a Comparative between both systems and why it is a lot better than DSX in all cases.

About the tool in the case of dynamic sprites, the graphic routine is made automatically by Dyzen, the tool rip the graphics in the most efficient way possible. For example this is an example of Klump GFX:



You can do the animation and hitbox on Dyzen, that must be done manually. Also the tool allows 1 Hitbox per frame or use the same hitbox for all frames.

Here i have a video about the ripper:



About animations and interaction i have some videos about how it works i also did a thread about how to use dyzen and do sprites very fast:

Dyzen Workshop


Also...

I Uploaded all Sprites of today.

Tomorrow i will upload more :).

This is definitely some impressive-looking technology! To be honest, I'm not quite sure if the DKC/pseudo-3D graphics style in a Mario hack is really for me, but just the ability of being able to pull off all this stuff is quite impressive on its own. DynamicZ hs really come quite a long way.

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!

Well i did "pseudo-3D" graphics because they looks nice for me, but you can use any graphics for dynamic sprites, if your sprite has to much frames, you can do it dynamic and save space on vram.
I think i will remake some of the dynamic sprites of SMWC's sprite section, Yoshi island has a lot of sprites that can be Dynamic.
