VLDCX

Super Mario WorldWork in ProgressMiscellaneous

VLDCX

This is just a quick announcement that I have began preliminary research on the feasibility of creating a VLDCX compilation. I've been asked about this a few times ever since revealing Six Pack and the way that hack was built. I can report that the first results look promising and it does appear that the tech is indeed capable of creating a VLDCX image out of the submitted patches. After just a couple of hours of work I was able to generate an (untested) image with all of the stages inserted. I've not yet have had time to further evaluate the output. I would like to emphasize that this thread is not a promise that I will actually finalize a VLDCX compilation.


What now?

While promising, the scripting and output will need some work and finetuning to fit the exact specifications of VLDCX. Six Pack was a single-developer effort and I was aided by a team of amazing testers. However, I don't think VLDCX will be the best it can be without some community involvement. There are some things I do not have the time for or interest in doing, and it would be great if the community could help out with these things. The primary issues would be the design of a proper overworld, the curation of the custom music used by the entries, and the testing of the whole project, as the team of testers involved with Six Pack will not be available for this project.

Before I dive deeper into this project, I would like to gauge community interest in a VLDCX compilation and if members of the community would be willing to help out with it. Please do not send me private messages about this (neither here nor on Discord), but reply in this thread instead. That keeps everything organized in one place, and is the most convenient way for everyone to discuss. Thanks!


Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful C3 :P

Good luck, I hope this project gets completed!
VLDCX was the first VLDC I had participated, after not participating on VLDC 9 due to me not knowing what the V meant at the time.



Can you please make double main overworld map and 12 submaps with better quality Ragey?
I decided my VLDCX overworlds:


C3 Stuff:
Music Request, Graphics, Ports, Mario Kart PC Custom Tracks, Overworld, Mario Kart Tour Fans Club, DT's Music, Clothes and Certificates, MIDI and Coverarts

I'm definitely interested in seeing where this goes. I would be more than happy to compose a song or three for the overworld music if you end up pursuing a full compilation, and maybe even some overworld design (I can't say I'm a master at it, but I know a thing or two). Let me know how things turn out!
embed fail!!




Looking forward to it!
Great job! Looks quite nice. Will you release the code used?
Check out my DKC rips!

What was a prospect we'd thought would never happen for many years might finally happen after so long.

I'll be looking forward to it. #tb{TwT}

Ragey, you got this.

I believe in you, Angery.

BTW, I was such an masochist that I played all the entries to completion (with 1 or 2 special exceptions, and I used savestates for levels that were low quality but hard/tedious)... Now is your turn, Birthday Boy
Six Pack was so great that VLDCX completion should be a thing. Because SMW Central needs to see more completion hacks in the coming future. Keep up the good work.
Really cool to see someone tackle this collab. Soon we might have the 12 VLDCs in our possession.
Maybe someone could use yoshifanatic's overworld revolution patch for this. It'll just need custom ow sprite implementation #tb{:>}
this is dope. my level is not really a good level, but it would be pretty cool for another credit in an ldc compilation.
you're tied to vldcs forever
so will disqualified levels be include since the level I entered to the vldcx contest that got disqualified was submitted years ago and maybe it would be a tad unfair to not include it after all these years, even if it was put in a disqualified world, if the level was included could you make the entrance to the secret exit more clear maybe an extra message box or a message box changed and moved near the p switch used to get the secret exit and the p switch used to get to the secret exit is no longer in an invisible box.
I'd certainly love to see a VLDCX compilation finally become a thing!

Regarding the overworld, I'd like to help with the design of some segments if needed, whether it's by piecing together segments made by me and various users, or assisting who's mainly undertaking the overworld design task.

I should have something witty to put here (even if it's just to update dated info), shouldn't I?

DQ'd entries have never been part of a VLDC compilation.

Sounds exciting! It'll be cool to have a contest collab hack where all the levels aren't over one and a half decades old.

Good luck on finishing this!

if the vldc 6 compilation hack was finished it would include disqualified levels in that compilation, my level was disqualified for unfair reasons and I think it scored more than the levels that scored in the bottom five in the vldc x contest, my level still might not have scored high but if they are included in the vldc x compilation it seems fair my level could be included too.
