D4C#9 - Mario: The Black Hole! (BEFORE SPLIT)

Standard

A new hack project by Team Haunted and SCORPION Works. Team Haunted Member Dadiro_01 joins SCORPION Works Members (Hunter and SCORPION Mythos) Sniggerb0bble, JELLJELL1111/Randor, and myself in a new hack of epic proportions. The Semi-Final hack to the Hunter and SCORPION Mythos... Super Mario: The Black Hole.

EDIT: Well, Randor and Sniggerb0bble can do anything they want when they want, but this project is mainly between Dadiro and myself.

This project is unlike the other two false alarms I posted a while back. (Ion Storm and Hikari) This project I plan to stay on. Just like The Fourth Sector, this hack has a Space Related Plot, however, isn't space themed. Stay tuned for more on this. Here is the Plot below.


PLOT:
4 years after the events of HR4, (not a hack made... fixing to be started by my brother, Metalgearhunter) Sniggerbobble, Randor, and Retnuh (the evil side of the now good Hunter) are at a loss. They've lost SCORPION in destruction of him in HR3. SCORPION is petrified and they have no idea where he is. Meanwhile, Mario has become so powerful, that they can't even win without an ingenius plan to sucumb Mario to his knees begging for mercy. Only SCORPION is smart enough to devise such a plan. However, in thier sorrow, a new creature appears before them. His name is Hiyoko... and he knows where SCORPION is sealed... and he knows how to release. However, they can't release him without Mario's help. Reluctantly, the 3 accept Hiyoko's offer to help them. 3 years pass and Mario recieves a note from Peach (spelled Peech in the game, the note is really by Hiyoko and the others) asking him to come to SCORPION's Temple. The one and only reason he is to go there is not to destroy SCORPION or see Peach... but to be responsible for the release of the ultimate destructive machine.

PLOT CONTINUED (Spoilers here)
Mario does happen to release SCORPION. And just as Randor, Sniggerbobble, Retnuh, and new member Hiyoko had hoped... SCORPION has a plan. They now stand an equal chance against Mario.

SCORPION's Plan
SCORPION plans to create a gaint machine that is capable of generating a black hole at a safe distance. He plans to suck the Mushroom Kingdom (and all of Earth for that matter) into it. The others and the machine himself stay in the kingdom to keep Mario away from the projects destination while SCORPION's Drones build it.
(the project is the huge machine meant to create the Black Holes)



Now that all that is over with, here are some pictures of the first level. The hack is still very much corrupt. I was planning on having 2 seperate characters involved, but that seems to be a problem. Expect more from this project soon.

PICTURES from the first level.

Custom Forest GFX


Generic Design


Screen Scrolling Pipes


Wigglers in the area...


Even Custom Pipe GFX


Pipes weren't the only thing I was going to change...


New Turn/Throw block GFX...


Lots of variety in these levels now...


Everybody can tell that I'm just one screen away from the goal... and I'm standing on a turn block bridge...




Please comment... as well. Nobody said they knew nothing of this project so I decided to post here. The other members might quit around world 3 or 4, but I'll stay and finish this.
I hope this is going to turn out great SCORPION. Us four are gonna try to get this featured so we have to keep this as clean as possible, with that I mean good graphics, good palettes etc...

I couldn't say that about Dadiro, he is a devoted worker. ;)

The screens look nice, the new graphics look nice... What are those hearts in the status bar through?

Ooh... I can smell the epic looming in the air for this project.
(For anyone that doesn't know I've only just found out about this so I may as well post my thoughts and stuff here)

Image 1: I'm guessing that's not the finished OW because it looks eerily similar to the one from SCORPION's Ravage.

From what I see so far I have no complaints, I look forward to this project!

Not blue.
No, the submap isn't finished yet.
...*sniff sniff* I'm very scared.
Looks good SCORPION.

SMWHacking? I rest my case.
SMWCentral? I leave it to rest.

Scientific genius!Looks neat so far, but the red part in between the munchers looks weird, or at least without knowing what the "closed" part looks like. Could you show a "closed" muncher?
I am the Eggman! My current Egglayout is to support Sonic Robo Blast 2. I'll change it sometime in the future.
Listen to the SRB2 Soundtrack! It's awesome! AWESOME I SAY! Also, PM me if you ever wanna do SRB2 with me.
Here's what a closed Muncher looks like.
Scientific genius!Ah, looks neat. Keep up the great work. I also like the FG. very hawt.

Here is a new level. Possibly one of my best, as are the other levels in this hack. Well please comment. This post will also be shown in the Screenshot/Video Thread too. The beginning explains other things.

That level looks really good SCORPION. I love the graphics as always. Also, nice song.

Some more progress, I started working on the second level as you suggested. It won't be vertical, but horizontal (Check your PM's why it is horizontal)

Expect some screenshots soon enough.
Another video. And expect a demo of this very soon. It will include.

5 levels of good design.
A readme of sorts, giving credit to those who need it.
A sixth level at the end of the demo, which is an interactive cutscene giving you information on the characters, both old and new.

And with that... I give you... Level 4 and preview of the most epic level so far.

EDIT: Eh, why only have video form. I took my time to take a few screenshots of the level 1-4. The Temple preview can only be got through the video though...



I'm liking what I've seen so far. <_< Shameless LP plug.

I loved the design of the first two levels. If that quality can be maintained throughout the hack, it will be an awesome project.
Seen the video, very nice. Anyway, I did a new title screen. I deactivated Layer 3... b/c it is made yet. Soon it'll say "Super Mario: Blackhole!"

Looking nice, S.C.O.R.P.I.O.N. Just I think you're forgetting someone... *ahem*

But seriously, I'm guessing that you're going to put Sniggerbobble and Hiyoko on the right of the screen and I'm excited to see the final version of the title screen.

Not blue.
Actually, if you look closely, you'll see Sniggerbobble moved himself behind Retnuh... they are all walking.
Ah I see now, thanks for pointing that out. It does seem kinda weird though, I personally imagine the four of them just standing at staring at the statue, but that's your call.

Not blue.
Like I siad... it isn't finished. When it is finished, the four of them will be looking at it.
The palettes and custom FG's are blend together quite nicely. Looks to be a great hack.

EDIT: omg, 60,000th SMW hacking discussion post. no way.
