Hidden stuff in LM?

I felt like looking through LM's hex, and I found a few surprising things:

MegaHAL: Nr., Relm und Chibi-USA sind unschuldig und sind Verteidiger durch dieses vortreffliche Lunarian, FuSoYa ist der Verteidiger des Südpazifiks. Die schalldichte Zelle ist Goodyears 7. und wird es aufdecken, wenn sie an Jupiter gelangen. Die Affen werden merkwürdig zur Regierung zur `` Rückkehr-Zustandeigenschaft zum Abschnitt von Westworld bevölkert durch Roboter desperadoes, Roboter Tanzenhalle Gallonen und die einzige Sache gezeichnet, die sogar langsam es unten kann? A. Elf auf einem volé le Leeloo- Leeloo-Club?

Is that German?

poisson

All of those are part of the Easter Eggs, but what about the last one, poisson? I've tried typing it in various places with no result.

Chelsea

We know what Chelsea is, but is the other one related to the "poisson"?

Unknown use. This sprite command is valid for SMA2 only, and should not be used in other games.

A yellow octagonal block with a picture of a coin on it. When hit, it gives you a display of how many coins are in the area that haven't been collected yet. If you collect them all, you get an extra 3-UP. If the sprite is used in a level that doesn't support it, the block simply bounces away and vanishes when hit. This is a new sprite that is only available in SMA2.

A Yoshi coin implemented as a sprite. This is a new sprite that is only available in SMA2.
A Yoshi coin implemented as a sprite. It will appear behind layer 1, as it's intended for use behind climbing nets. Mario can only touch it if he's climbing the back of a net. This is a new sprite that is only available in SMA2.

Overworld level and directional ASM enhancement data.

Huh?

There's a whole bunch of stuff here. The ones we know about are:

Lunar Magic
Save level to ROM?
Switched to other Super Bypass dialog.

That last one is activated with Shift-F4, it just looks different.

I remember hearing about the color hack once, but don't have a clue what it does or how to do it.

There also seems to be some sort of RATS repair thing.

I don't think so, Tim.

Bwuh? (It's in with all the error messages)

SUPER MARIOB

Super MarioB? What's that about?

I also found the days, months, AM and PM. My only guess is that it's something Borland (the compiler) puts in automatically whether you use the date or not.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Have a clue about the "poisson" thing?

Translator time!

MegaHAL: Nr., Relm and Chibi-USA are innocent and are defender through this excellent Lunarian, FuSoYa is the defender of the south Pacific. The soundproof cell is Goodyears 7th and wants uncover it if they arrive at Jupiter. Are the apes populated drawn remarkably dance hall to the government to the `` return-Zustandeigenschaft to the section of west world through robot desperadoes, robot gallons and the single thing, that can Eves slowly it below? A. eleven on a volé le Leeloo- Leeloo-club?

lol
It seems that some of that (octagon coin block etc.) is for the rumored SMA2 support LM will get or not...
Good find, but this could've gone in the data depository.
<TLMB> I use YY-CHR to edit DNA
LM Originally had plans for SMA2 support but that was scrapped.

really? well, that sucks. i doubt Fu will get on that again...
<TLMB> I use YY-CHR to edit DNA

what is SMA2?
Kawaii !!


^ Super Mario Advanced 2.

This stuff is really interesting. FuSoYa really goes crazy with secrets. Someone should really make that octagon thing as a custom sprite or something.
Lol, is that why that spammer that came was named 'tim'?

I wonder if you can get those descriptions by inserting it manually?

Fixed.

Anyone know anything about the color hack? Also I request move to... SMW Hack Discussion maybe?

moved to basic
Discovery: The German stuff is from the "Amy is cute!" code.

Also, the color hack is known about after all:

8. The Palette Hack code

Hitting F8 allows you toggle the pallette hack on the title screen. Normally, the background turns blue when "erase file" is selected, but LM installs a hack that bypasses this when you first save Level C7. You can use F8 to turn it off, or back on again (changes are saved after you save Level C7).


EDIT: Another discovery: After doing the Amy code, go back to the change events passed dialog, type poisson, press Escape, and it will say "...wark?" I haven't found anything that that does yet though.

SUPER MARIOB is SMA2's ROM Name

In french, poisson means fish, then poisson could mean : Poisson d'avril, or in english, April Fools' Day.

Mabey you can only type poisson the 1 rst of april ? That would be funny

From kokojo:
Poisson d'avril, or in english, April Fools' Day.

Poisson d'AVRIL!?! Great, now you've got that song stuck in my head...
Why you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're actin' like your somebody else; gets me frustrated!
Life's like this. You...

Sorry, mods. Couldn't resist! ^_^

As for the "I don't think so, Tim" bit...
From MrCheeze:

Ever heard of a show called Home Improvement? The quote was made by a guy on that show named Al Borland. He often said it to Tim Allen's character, Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor, during the Tool Time segments. And the compiler you mention is called "Borland", so...! :laughing:

MrCheeze, welcome to a few years ago.
So does that mean you actually know about the unknown ones, or that the same questions were brought up before?

Alex: So that's what was with that. Now the only unsolved mysteries are what the "...wark?" does (if anything) and if there actually is a way to hack SMA2 with it.

EDIT: And the RATS removal thing.
And the "Overworld level and directional ASM enhancement data".

I wonder if "I don't think so, Tim" was added by Borland or by FuSoYa?

Unless FuSoYa MADE Borland, I highly doubt he added it.

Why not? He could have put it in manually or added it to an unused/hidden routine.

I guess you're right. He COULD have. But we won't know for sure... ^^;
