Okay, I'm up to World 3 and a part of level 1 of World 4 (in November it was up to world 2, excluding Castle 2).
The plot (changed):
Mario has been captured by Bowser. Now, Pokey, Pogi (his brother, yep, I changed his name) and Poker and Pauley (their friends) are going to try and save Mario. This fails, however, so they go home. However, Bowser is so mad, that he will let his troops take the pyramids over. A lot of Pokeys manage to escape.
Now, Pokey will do it on his own, a second time, and now, it must work.
Changes (from November):
Pokey is no longer red on the OW
Self-edited custom sprites (but now, just 1, and it acts like a Left Moving Thwomp).
Things I need to do :
Paths (haha, I've done nothing on this the last 3 months)
Music (but I do have soundboxes)
World 4 (part of) - World 9 (I think).
The title screen. I'm not happy with the palette. You're supposed to see pyramids.
World 1, yay. Stayed the same, pretty much.
That's World 2. Not as empty as in November, anymore.
Well, here we are. Short Hills. This one has undergone some radical graphic changes. The (boring) green sky made me think of dusk. And seeing how this is the first level of a hack called The Nightly Task, it'd fit perfectly into the hack.
Also, there's SMB2 ground (also self-made diagonal ground, not on this picture).
And these boxes, instead of clouds.
Dark Factory. I didn't like the green stars, so I made the palette blue. I did something similar to Iggy's Castle, so I called this part of World 1 'Blue Area'.
Meh, these blocks are better than throw blocks.
No longer is this factory haunted, it fucks up the ON/OFF switch sprite.
However, I dislike this sprite choice too. I'll edit it somehow.
Iggy's Castle, you start outside. And now, you have two choices. Will you enter the left, or right door?
Hurray, treasure room!
There's two ways to clear this lava field. No, the ground scrolls up and down, that's not the option.
This level is so ugly, I will only show one pic. It'll need much more work. It has a secret exit.
Defrustation Palace. Secret exit.
Yellow Switch Palace.
Cave Mayhem Above Ground...
..the lava dash...
...and lava ride.
Bloock's Mansion. I edited the blocks around that light bulb, because it indeed looked noobish.
Inside of the mansion.
I'll do a custom boss here... but for now, Big Boo.
Ok, that was what I already had in November. Here's new stuff.
Lemmy's (Crazy Lava) Castle. I added this pipe here, because Magikoopa sometimes destroys vital stuff... so that you can restart.
Underwater part of the castle. After this, another part follows (looks like level F8) and then, it's Pokey vs. Lemmy.
This is World 3, The Old Mineshaft. The left pipe (secret pipe) does not work properly, because when I go in and return again, Pokey's position is changed and he can't go through other exits properly.
Little Lead Mine 1. First level to feature boost blocks (there's quite a lot of them around World 3). There's also a quite well hidden secret exit.
At the end, of all these pipes, there's only one which will lead you to the exit. It's pretty obvious, though.
Secret Sources (secret level). This secret exit (to be honest, it's a normal exit actually, the regular exit is flagged as Secret...) will bring you to the left pipe.
If you've been here, then be proud. Clearing this will unlock the pipe. And when it works properly, you might skip whole worlds.
As of now, all you must do is kill some Shyguys and Birdo's. I'm going to put a custom boss in it.
Little Lava Climb. At the moment my hardest level.
Coin Fortress. Don't catch too much coins here (you can abuse it though).
And Little Lead Mine 2.
Now this is Larry's Castle. You will notice that the ceiling falls down (sometimes that 'noticing' results in being crushed).
A lot of walls have spikes on them, too. Don't stand too close to them.
Ceilings fall down...
Everything seems to move up and down!
World 4, Game Land. Features some SMW-ized versions of games like SM64.
The frontyard. Background uses SMAS graphics. Must be changed a bit, though.
The inside. Aww, you need 30 stars to pass... er, no. 30 coins, actually. For now, I'll use coin graphics, but I'm going to let it use star graphics, I think.
At the end, there's a pyramid. It has two sides : the bright one, and the dark one. This is the bright...
... and this is the dark.
That's it, for now.
Comments are welcome
Don't follow "Find Roy's Dignity", my hack
. Because it's pretty outdated. <--------
