With my 500th post, I shall unveil my secondary hack, starring Luigi: The Fate Of Luigi!
I originally didn't want a thread, but what better way is there to commemorate my 500th post with a hack? ...and a change of avatars?
STORY: Luigi is feeling uncertain about his feelings toward his brother.
Luigi: "I know it's good that Mario rescues Peach and all, but..."
He feels largely ignored and underrated. He understands Mario is just trying to help Peach, but he can't take this any longer. Bowser, being observant as he is, offers Luigi a proposition: a position in his army, against Mario. Mario hears this and rushes to the scene.
Mario: "Hey, you can't take my brother away!"
Peach, who was strolling aside Mario, steps in.
Peach: "Wait, Mario. This is Luigi's decision to make."
This is where the adventure begins!
I'm not sure what to do with the part where the paths unite, but I'm sure there's an awesome possibility. Suggestions are welcome!
LEVELS: As my request was fufilled by Mr. Taximan, the level making has commenced!
I have black and white palettes, as Luigi will make his choice via white or black palace switch, which are (obviously) good and evil, respectively. His decision will lead him to different levels.
I am faced with a choice. Should I leave these palettes, or turn everything black and white, or some things black and white? If it is the latter, which things should I convert, as in blocks, sprites, status bar, etc.?
Oh, and DO NOT create any userbars for me or supporters. I will take care of that.
Those are some good palettes, and the story is pretty good as well.
And, for when the paths colide, I think that there should be a castle with a split path so you can go help protect the castle or help destroy it (Using Switch Palaces: The left path would activate one color, and the right path would activate another) And, if you don't want the player to have a chance to turn back and change alliences, make the first level pick your path by using these blocks, so it will teleport you to one side of the OW depending on which path you take, and since it doesn't use events, you can't go back.
I've got other ideas as well for the place where the paths merge. But, i'll keep this post short.
Also, you're welcome for the "Luigi (Insert A, B, or C here)" text change.
This hack looks pretty good, I like the idea of having multiple paths to choose. The story is very unique too!
But I would suggest not making every level black and white. It just looks a bit...wierd. But like already said, the levels where you decide something should be black and white. And I would keep some stuff like ?-Blocks yellow, because they'd look weird in black'n'white. I would just change the FG and the BG colours.
I have not been able to work on this due to unforseen circumstances, and public service, by which I mean the compiling of IPS patches and ranksets for the members of SMWC. Many of the times you see me here, I'm here via Wii because I can't get to my computer. Also, I'm planning on joining the golf team, which means I won't get home until about 4:40 or so. That, coupled with school, means I won't really be able to work on this hack. Don't worry, as I'll try my hardest to work on this.
