(this is a beta video. I've only come this far, But expect more. Oh, and the level music might be changed. Tell me if you know anything that fits more ;))

Pictures:


intro


beta sub-overworld, nothing to care about yet.


small Mario


big Mario


fire Mario


just some gameplay


Allright, so this is the Mario The Archaeologist 2 after the "fail" of Mario The archaeologist. It was a good hack but it had many bugs and stuff like that, but meh. It was my first hack and I didn't expect it to be that good :3
I'm really exalted about the making of this hack since I've just begun on it.

I ripped the smb2 Mario and made some own graphical stuff for "Fusoya's desert" so now it looks completely different (oh, and the smas ground and the text).
So yeah, I want to keep this hack smas styled, but spiced up :)
That's pretty much it, you like it?
this looks like pieces of shit...I WAS JOKING! this looks excellent! i dont see many smb2 allstar mario...THATS great! ive played your hack before...and it looked not cool...but this is great again! and allstar hacks is getting more common around here...and i love your fonts! what ever you do...DO NOT REALESE EM! awesome!
That's awesome,MATTAN!I really like the graphics and your font.Also,those palletes look really nice.

I hope to see more soon!
So far, this looks like an excellent hack. My only complaint is the text...it's really, REALLY hard to read at times...otherwise, keep up the good work Mattan. :]
The level looks great.
The font is horrible, though, and very hard to read. I'd suggest changing that.

I think the SMB3 overworld music in levels can get anoying, since it is very repetative. I have no suggestion for a replacement, but I do suggest looking for one. ;) Or just use it in a very few amount of levels only.
The music for the level is now changed to this after tries to tweak the song that was used in the video after serveral complains, it isn't as repeditive and doesn't complain ear rape.
Well,some people don't seem to like the font,but I find it very readable and cool.But,it's up to everyone's opinions.This is still very cool.
I have to agree with Ragey about the music. you might wanna head on over to Ice's Man website and take a look around for a few good ones.
Hey Mattan. Good job on that one!
I have none bad critics, except for that the message text is a real PITA to read in my opinion.

Also you could use Mt. Rugged theme from Paper Mario to various Desert levels, Dry Dry Desert theme even.
I love this so much right now... It looks so awesome.

Also,

Update!

I've added a new normal font:


And some smexy tiles to the tileset:


Plus new music (ignore the cutoffnes in the end):

The font looks great.It's even easier to read now.Those tiles are also really good.The music sounds great,too.

Keep it up!
I'm loving the graphics style you're using on your hack, MATTAN - they're actually kind of simple, but they're still nice to look at. I personally love SMAS graphics, even though they seem to be rather overused nowadays. Your custom graphics look cool too, and they fit perfectly with the rest of the graphics you're using. However, the songs you're using in your hack do not fit with their respective environments, IMO - if I were you, I would use a more exciting song for the first level - the SMB2 cave theme doesn't sound so good in such a living atmosphere, in my opinion. The overworld song doesn't fit with its respective environment either... I would suggest changing it to something "less-icy".

Other than that, this is looking really cool so far - to be honest, I didn't like "Mario the Archaeologist" at all, but its sequel seems to be a bunch better. Keep it up! :)
Thanks for the nice comments.

broozer: I'll keep that in mind and see if there are any better songs ;), but I don't think I will change the Ow music. Why? Because I think the music representes the overworld, kinda lonely and empty. I like mixing songs and using for example icy songs for un-icy overworlds.
That's a very nice way of thinking,MATTAN.I also think the OW music fits the lonely and empty atmosphere.
Honestly, I suggest naming it something besides "Mario The Archaeologist 2". The first one just wasn't fun, all the levels were just short and bland. I just really thought it was awful.

Oh that's really nice, he's obviously improved his hacking skills since Mario the Archaeologist 1, so really basing your judgment of this hack on that would be pretty hasty. Also, I don't see why naming his hack Mario the Archaeologist 2 would in any way hurt the hack, seeing as its his series and its a direct sequel, its better that way. If someone didn't like the original TSRP, doesn't mean they won't like TSRP2. At least try to comment on his current screens, because for all intents and purposes, this is a different hack. That's all I have to say on this.

Now for my comments on your screens (sorry about that little side rant):

- The font is certainly much more readable, but the original was much more distinctive, and IMO better. It'd be cool if you could have just modified those a bit, but that's just my opinion.

- The gfx changes are quite nice, I'm not sure whether you drew those bean things or not (I forgot what they were called), but they look really nice regardless. The FG and BG compliment each other well, I like the deserted wasteland effect that it creates. The fog is a nice touch too.

As a note, I'm glad you changed the music, because the distortion guitar really hurt my ears in the original video. And the new one fits better, it gives more of a sense of desolation.

I thought pandemonium fortress 1 was a less-than-decent hack, so I went into the sequel with a bad mindset. If somebody plays the first and they really dislike it they might not try the second.

And the plot of the original archaeologist hack was something along the lines of Peach threatening to "give mario over to bowser the rapist" if Mario didn't collect enough treasure. So, it's not really a big deal if that particular storyline isn't continued.

Though, I can see how I'd be viewed as a pessimistic insulting judgmental unwanted jerk for snarling at someone presenting the beginnings of something they've created, so, I'm just going to be quiet now.
SADFACE: This is not the place to whine about Mario The Archaeologist 1! I already explained that I've become better and that it indeed was my FIRST hack. It doesn't matter what this hack is named, it will still be a better hack and continue on the plot taking the mta idea longer. enough, now I shall give you some pictures


a skull sign


Huh? But what's this, a new used block?


new vine graphics


Plus new flower graphics

]
more new pirhana awesomeness (this one might be questionesd, but it is from smas


Yayz, a p-switchy.


A prize

I've changed the palette of many things to follow the palette style of this level, and the palette for the (for example) vines wont be the same in other parts of the games.
