My hack with no name -Video and questions.

I've started a hack, which has no no name yet, and... no story yet either. I also only have about half of a level done.

The one thing that I am almost done though is the overworlds, all of them are accessible from the start, and every level in them are too.

The main map

Anyone know how to fix that one wall, on the right cave, left side?

The first sub-map

ignore the smoke

The second sub-map


The third sub-map


The fourth sub-map isn't done

The fifth sub-map



What do you think about the overworlds? Also, sorry I'm not done any levels, I'm going to get on to that right now.
I have nothing to put here, so I'm putting these filler words in until I can think of something that I can fit here.
Theres a big bit of cuttoff on your first screen but apart from that you OW'S are really good.
I really like the fourth submap.

Also, to fix the problem you mentioned, using ExGFX is a good idea. Just use YY-CHR and add a line.


EDIT: Ninja'd. But to the ninja, he said he's trying to fix that.
This looks fine!
In the second sub-map, are missed more decorations.Please add it.(I suggest)
All rest are good.I´ll wait the levels screenshots.

Your submaps have some perspective issues. Plus there is some cutoff. But they look quite neat overall. I hope the levels turn out well.
Looking forward to the levels. ;D

It may be just me, but the palletes for that submap don't seem that great.
Good fucking bye.
The second sub-map is a little too flat, and it could use a little more decorations.

Also, you might want to think about fixing the cut-off.
Currently working on a website that lists Minecraft Servers... if you have any suggestions for my Minecraft server list, let me know.
Add decor to all of your submaps and do what everyone else suggested too. Then your OW and submaps should be good.
Hello there, here is my new blog. I will usually update it every day.

It's not that cutoffy. Just a little annoying. I hardly noticed it. Otherwise, I particularly like submap three, especially the palette. "Cheese Bridge Area", however unintentional, cracks me up.

Congratulations, our hacks, progress-wise, are total opposites! I have a few levels done but no overworld, and you have the entire overworld but no levels!

Okay, it's just me. >.>
Good fucking bye.
I'm glad that most people seem to like my overworld and submaps. I fixed that one cave and added a bit of decoration.

I changed some graphics of some stuff, and, if no one likes them, I'll change them back.

I finished the fourth submap.


Now, for my first level.
That would be a goomba and a mushroom


bullet bill.


How does it look?

The Middle Island looks flat and blocky. I would suggest looking in the Screenshots and Videos thread(s) for examples of very well functioning overworlds. In addition, your grass palette seems to have a weird border colour...

I would suggest changing up the Background and foreground palettes in this area- the old SMW palettes make the game feel very bland and shallow.

You could use more decoration in this area. Try adding in a few enemies and some of the crazy ground contusions that are so popular among vanilla hackers.

A fish generator over a bland bridge in a grassland? :| That would be a no. Try not using the fish generator as level filler, and instead focus on level design.

bullet bill.

The Bullet Bill looks a bit more like a flat missle. Try making the graphics for it a bit more plump.

Again, it does not look like there is much going on in this picture. Add decoration to please the player.

*Pics*

You might want to fix these...

main:
1: Big cutoff at the top-center
2: perspective issue on the left
3: cutoff at the top-center

Sub-map:
1: some perspective issues
2: cutoff left-down
3: Palettes look kinda weird :S
4: -
5: some minor cutoff and perspective issues

(sorry if i'm doing anything against the rules >.<)



I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.
It's been about a week and a half or so since I last posted here, but I have been working on some graphics stuff.

I want to make a video of me going through my first level, and I don't know how, can anybody direct me to place that will help, or tell me themselves?

I have two questions too.

Should I have yoshi in my hack?
and...
Should I make custom bosses, and if so, should I use Ultimate Noob thing, or make it myself? (I don't know ASM yet.)
I have nothing to put here, so I'm putting these filler words in until I can think of something that I can fit here.
ok for making videos. if your using ZSnes then thats good. if you arent then download it. next you will have to download This. when its done downloading, extract it and there will be a couple files and so you will only need mencoder.exe so put that in your ZSnes Directory. (You can delete the other stuff that came with it since you only need this). okay now that you have that done just go into ZSnes and open your rom and then whenever you want to make a movie press Esc and go to Misc -> Movie Opt. once your there it will have stuff like 0-9 as dots and that stuff so press record and it will record everything you want but if you take too long it will do some stuff like make mario move the wrong way and die. but anyway when your done go back to Movie Options and then press Stop. (If you want to you can play the movie so you can see what you did or stuff.) ok now minimize ZSnes (Make it smaller not full screen), go to the Dumping tab and make sure these are only checked: "Xvid Lossless, Zmv Length, Dump Audio, Merge With Audio." only these can be checked, the other ones that arent on the list have to be unchecked. now that thats done make sure its the correct movie so if you recorded it on movie 0 then make sure its 0 for the 0-9 thing. anyway once all of this is done press Start and it will record it into a avi format which is gonna take awhile so just do whatever you want until its done. then just upload it on youtube or anywhere and then your done. just then make a new post in your hack thread which is this one and copy the Embed stuff so that people dont have to go to the link but instead just watch it directly.

jeez that is lots of typing. anyway i dont really know if you should use yoshi since i never use him but lets hear of to what other people say about it. for the custom bosses i think you should have a couple and i sould personally use either the Newbie boss or the Ultimate Noob Boss since coding bosses is incredibly difficult except for if you have had maybe a couple years of ASM Knowledge and know alot about it.


Hacks I Support:


You lost me when you said go to the dumping tab... Where is that?

Here's me playing through my first level.

<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/MX2_i17zKP8&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/MX2_i17zKP8&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

How was it, did you like the player graphics/level?

Also, if anyone has an idea for a name/story for this, feel free to tell me.

I could find some errors, one is that when the cracker thing was running up the wall, when its like on a corner, it returns to mario's sprite for half a second.

Like this
Strait |

Corner \

Sideways -

Like when he just starts to run up the wall.

Also, the cracker kind of looks wierd, like its arms are sticking out, like its going to hug someone. Also, when its holding an item, the arm isnt touching the item.
