Yoshi's Strange Quest (V1.4 in progress)

Link Thread Closed
Thanks, Teo17. :) Yep, I made that submap myself. Actually, I made both of the submaps shown in the demo (plus two more that can't be seen during the demo, unless the player looks in Lunar Magic). I got the hang of making overworlds by improving upon the overworld Corruptendo made for MSQ. I'm not sure about what you meant when you said I was being shy about it. Are you talking about the fact that I didn't show off the cave submap until now (if this is the case, I did show it off. It could be seen in the Yoshi Abilities Glitches video I made)? Also, in the demo you and the other playtesters got, the cave submap won't look the same, since I improved upon it after you guys got the demo, since Bleaghhh mentioned that it was kind of bland.

As for what Corruptendo said, it's ok. If you've been busy, I understand. I'm not going to put a time limit on any of the playtesters to finish playtesting the hack, but the sooner you and the others finish, the better. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you and the other three playtesters who haven't finished yet about YSQ.

I finished playing the demo and it was great!

pros-
Yoshi is the player! Duh!
nice cutscenes (like the yoshi thoughts in them)
pretty cool level ideas
nice ammount of levels - its just right!
Really nice choices of music!

cons-
The controls were hard to get used to!
I died a lot!
on the first level I went to the very top and hit the row of blocks on the very top and for some reason died.
The animation of when yoshi gets hit looks like he is riding an invisible yoshi (might change?)
and the hit counter wasn't very good, I had 5 HP once, got hit about have 3 HP, the second time I had 5 HP, got hit by the same enemy and this time I died!

Edit) oh! almost forgot, Its possible to do the following:
transfer a key to another level
have an egg when there are no eggs in the egg bar thingy.

Edit 2) I may do a video review of the demo. So look out for that!

Thanks for playtesting, Corruptendo. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Just like when Bleaghhh posted his comments on YSQ, I'm going to comment on your comments (in order)

pros:
- For Yoshi fans, that would certainly be a good thing.
- Thanks. Since I can't have castle destruction scenes (well, actually, I could if I changed one thing in Hurt.asm), I had to do something else. So I went with making my own cutscenes. I am trying to make them funny, just like a lot of other things in YSQ.
- Thanks. I'm trying to think outside the box this time for the level ideas. It certainly helps that Yoshi is playable in this hack, since I can come up with gimmicks that revolve around him (such as fattening plains).
- Thanks. YSQ can only get longer from here. Though I haven't decided on it yet, the final version will probably have a similar number of levels that MSQ had.
- Thanks. Just like with MSQ, I plan on using a lot of music. Already, there are 46 songs in YSQ (this includes songs in the MISC. folder). Most of which were not used in MSQ. I did reuse a couple of songs that could be heard in MSQ, though, but mainly the ones I only used once (like cave2.txt from the Mario's Keytastrophe Full Soundtrack).

Cons:
- While Yoshi mostly controls like Mario, there are some differences that may or may not take time to get used to. When I went back to playing Mario's Strange Quest after playing YSQ a lot, it felt a little awkward.
- Yeah, that may happen quite a bit. I plan on making YSQ harder than MSQ. You and the others will be glad to have a health counter (especially once it gets fixed so it works properly)
- Did Yoshi have something in his mouth when you jumped into the ceiling? When Yoshi's mouth is full, it seems that he shrinks in size (even though it doesn't look like he did). So, Yoshi's head goes through the ceiling in this case.
- That's Yoshi's hurt animation by default. I'm not sure what I could change it to.
- I don't get it. Yoshi loses five HP every time he is hurt, not 2. Maybe you got hit twice without noticing (I have noticed cases where Yoshi seems to get hit while he is in the hurt animation). Also, it should be noted that if Yoshi has less than five HP, it means instant death if Yoshi gets hurt.
- I know about that glitch. Anything Yoshi puts in his mouth can be taken with him to other levels, not just keys. This really needs to be fixed, because it can potentially break puzzles and cause graphical glitches (see what happens when you put a buzzy beetle in Yoshi's mouth, and then spit it out in a level with different graphics in SP4).
- You have to show me that, since I've never seen that happen before.

As for the video review, I'll be looking forward to that.

Also, I've been thinking about the story for YSQ and the one for MSQ, and I've thought of ways to connect both of them together. I've started to write a .txt file that contains all the details regarding the story for MSQ and YSQ, a list of every character that appears in either of these two hacks, and a list of details that explain certain events. I will not upload this until after I finish YSQ (for obvious reasons). Of course, once it's uploaded, unless the person reading it wants to spoil the game, I recommend not reading it until he/she finishes both MSQ and YSQ.

Yeah, that submap definately looks a lot better and a lot less plain. Also, I did notice the radio in Yoshi's house. Not sure why I didn't mention it in the testing though =S
Thanks. I'll see if I can make the other parts of the overworld just as good as the first two submaps (though the main map is going to be a pain to make).

Also, I haven't yet heard from ToonLinktheFairy, Magiluigi, and Teo17 about their progress with playtesting YSQ since they got the hack. Have you three been busy or something? Let me know how far you three have gotten in YSQ. I'm not going to upload the hack to my file bin until all the playtesters finish playtesting YSQ, though I am going to make an exception in Teo17's case, since he is playtesting for a different reason than the others (he is checking out the glitches with the Yoshi Abilities patches, though he can comment on YSQ if he wants).

I'm truly busy lastly, but I have a simple way of fixing ALL of the issues in this sprite which will give a good thing to both guys - me and yoshifanatic. This sprite basically is a code, which has flaws or not enough things in certain places. I'll read all the code from all ASM files and terminate it exactly, after it, I'll make fixes, test it myself, and I'll hope it will be ok. Yeah, I'm not sure if I can do it fastly, but I will do what I can and if I will do it, I will also upgrade my ASM skills. Also, did you notice that green coins are giving you health points only if you collect them from the bottom? I'm not sure if it's intentional... And, the issue with the death sequence glitches really not seem to be Jimmy's issues, so you could do something wrongly. Anyway, will you be able to port to a new ROM if needed>?
...Huh?
I kind of figured you were busy, Teo17. I know you have your own hack you are working on (which I recently checked out, by the way. Great hack you have there), you are helping me out with the Yoshi Abilities patches, and you are probably busy with other things I don't know about. You don't need to rush with fixing the Yoshi Abilities patches, but the sooner it's finished, the better.

I'm curious what that sprite will be.

Judging by the rate I'm going with YSQ, I think I'll finish it in 5-6 months. You have plenty of time, though again, the sooner those patches are fixed, the better.

I didn't notice that. I checked that out and it seems to be true. However, I can still collect them from other directions, but it is random whether or not it affects the health counter if I collect them from the side or above.

If I patched unmodified Yoshi Abilities patches to a clean SMW ROM, then have Mario lose a life, the death routine would still not work properly. It's something wrong with the patch.

I keep track of everything I do to the ROM, so porting won't be that difficult if I have to do it.

Corruptendo, you realize that this isn't the right place to tell me that, right? You should of either sent me a PM, mentioned that in your signature or profile page, or bump the Yoshifanatic's Adventure thread you started to announce that (that is, if it's ok for the original poster to bump their hack thread if it's been over a month. I'm not too sure).

With that out of the way, I'll be sure to check out Yoshifanatic's Adventure when you submit a demo. Just like with Mario is Sick, I will play through it and tell you every flaw I could find in it, as well as my opinion on various things.

As for updates on with YSQ, I haven't done much lately, since I'm attempting to think up new ideas for levels, and I'm still waiting to hear from ToonLinktheFairy and Magiluigi. I did finish the .txt file I was planning on writing that contained details about MSQ and YSQ (though I will add on to it as I work on YSQ). There are three sections in it, the full story in both hacks (this includes the stuff that the player doesn't learn about until later in these hacks), a full list of characters that appear in either hacks (this includes characters that are only mentioned in text, as well as a couple of characters I haven't yet put in YSQ, but I plan on adding. Also, each character has a quick description of who they are, and their likes, dislikes, weaknesses, and which hack(s) they appear in), and a list of secrets regarding certain things in MSQ and YSQ (such as why the item shop in MSQ never has feathers and why the hazard in Temptation Woods in MSQ kills Mario).

It is.
Good fucking bye.
You know what? I'm getting VERY impatient with ToonLinktheFairy and Magiluigi. I'm getting tired of waiting to hear from both of you about your progress on playtesting YSQ. If you two don't give me any updates on how you are doing with playtesting YSQ by Friday, then I am going to pretend that neither of you asked me to playtest YSQ. There is simply no reason it should be taking you two a week to playtest a hack that takes about an hour to play through. All you two are doing is delaying the release of the current demo of YSQ and preventing me from putting any serious effort into making more levels. Please give me an update on your progress, or I'm cutting you two from the group of playtesters.

I'll playtest, and send feedback very soon.
Your layout has been removed.
Okay. Feedback. I had no problems but I can't access to the Red Switch. I read about it before.
Layout by piranhaplant.
Thinking about making a Rainbow Magic thread at the Media forum.
Ok. Thanks for the update ToonLinktheFairy. So, does this mean you are finished playtesting YSQ? I can't really tell by your post. As for the Red Switch Palace, don't worry about it. While it can be reached, it's not part of the demo.

As for Magiluigi, you are off the list of playtesters because you failed to give me an update by today, and I'm am sick and tired of waiting to hear from you.

xlk is going to take Magiluigi's place, now. All I ask of xlk is that he doesn't take long to playtest YSQ.

...

Not that I care anyway .-.
You know something? I'm in a bit of an awkward position, now. On one hand, Magiluigi was playtesting YSQ all this time, before I took him off the list of playtesters for YSQ. On the other hand, he didn't give me any indication that he was playtesting during the week, which made me think he was being lazy, which is what caused me to take him off the list of playtesters for YSQ. I'm not very sure what I should do now. Should I finish up the current demo of YSQ, even though xlk is now playtesting YSQ or should I wait until xlk is finished with YSQ before I upload it to my file bin? I'm really not sure what to do now after I got Magiluigi's PM earlier.

One thing is for certain, I'm putting a restriction on the playtesters so that problems like this can be avoided in the future. If someone is playtesting one of my hacks, that person must give me an update on their progress every once in a while (this update can be either about how far this person has gotten or about a flaw or two that need fixing).

I've made my decision. I'm going to upload the hack to my file bin so others can finally play the sequel to MSQ. Click the link in my signature to download the hack. If you want to see screenshots, look at the first post of this thread.

Also, xlk, since I'm uploading the hack now, you don't need to playtest the version I linked to if you don't want to.

Also, Magiluigi, I am acknowledging the fact that you playtested YSQ, but if you want to playtest any of my hacks in the future, please give me updates on your progress (this also applies to others who playtest one of my hacks).

Here is the description for the hack, although I may change it later on:

This is the sequel to Mario's Strange Quest. Picking up where Mario's Strange Quest left off, it turns out that the part
where Yoshi's eggs hatched at the end of MSQ was the sleeping Yoshi's dream. What actually happened after Mario beat Bowser
was that Yoshi decided to move to a new land so that he can protect his eggs from Bowser. Of course, Bowser insists on
stealing Yoshi's eggs for the same reason he did before in Mario's Strange Quest. Since Mario isn't around to help, and
because Mario already did it, Yoshi decides to go on a quest to retrive his eggs from Bowser. However, just like Mario's
Strange Quest, this isn't your ordinary quest. Expect the unexpected.

Hi, just want to let you know that I'm on a good way to be able to fix various bugs. I'm currently busy with my SMWCP2 level stuff and I'm coding sprites for my level. It's good that I'm coding them as I'll improve my sprite coding/reading skills and it'll be easier to fix the yoshi abilities files. Soon, I'm going out, but it all should be done in the next month. =)
...Huh?
Ok, Corruptendo. I'll be sure to watch your LP on YSQ and MSQ.

As for what Teo17 said, that's great news! I'll be looking forward to those bug fixes. However, since I know now that you are working on a level for SMWCP2 and that the deadline for that is less than a month away, I suggest you finish that first.

As for updates, now that I uploaded the hack to my file bin, I can now focus on making the next demo, which will probably have 30-40 levels spread across 5-6 worlds. Already, I have a few level ideas I would like to implement. Right now, in addition to Burger Pass, I'm working on a level called "Dragon's Den". It is going to be the castle of either world 4 or 5, and the main gimmick involves finding keys to unlock doors. The boss of this level will be very different than the other bosses in the hack, though I'm not going to reveal who or what it is.

Edit: For the past hour, I was messing around with the overworld maps I haven't used yet and I came up with a layout for the overworld, along with how many levels and exits there will probably be. In it's current state, there are 63 levels (80 exits). The exact number of levels and exits may change, but this is probably how many levels I'm going to design for YSQ.
