I will have to agree on how the brightness gives a superb touch to the graphics of your hack - your use of graphics is honestly one of the most impressive I have ever come across. Aside from the cheerful palette choices and such, I also like it how you usually seem to be mixing different graphics included in the ExGFX section to create unique combinations.
Despite the foreground graphics looking super good, I will have to jump onto the bandwagon and agree on the fact that it would be interesting if you could switch to a non-SMW background for that level.
Eh... either way, I hope you keep up the excellent work!
Very nice to see that you're still working on the hack, Andy, and have some decent updates.
That's a pretty interesting idea for a castle background. The gradient could be HDMA...or not? Well, I'm not so familiar in these things. Anyways, the screenshots look great!
Well, the graphics and the level looks really cool, but i don't like the background that much, it seems wayyy too empty.aran - Graces of Heaven
I love this hack nice job you have really progressed since the older version...Keep up the great work
No, I refuse to comment on those screenshots because you tricked me
Seriously though, that last screenshot looks a little crowded.
Atma-- Seriously, How? It just looks like a lot of action is taking place if you ask me.
What about that Blue Coin in the last screen? Is that a new feature, or have I missed something obvious? Also, maybe it's just me, but it seems like the Raccoon tail is coming from a little high on Mario's buttocks. My eyes could just be playing tricks on me, though.
Wow, those screens are fantastic and the style you have is just great. I'd love to see a video of that boss battle, too.
Speaking of videos, remember that one you made of the boss fight of Bowser a while back? Well now that Terra Stripe is out (It wasn't out when you posted it) you can add some nice layer 3 rain. Just a suggestion, though.
Really awesome stuff, I think. I really like the NPCs, and the castle. The castle graphics fit so well. I really like the kind of 3D effect underneath the airships.
And man, you sure laid it on thick with the, 'My two years of work is gone boohoo.'
