Vanilla Level Design 2008: Submissions

Link Thread Closed
All right, worked all morning to create a level. It's one I planned to make for my hack but never got around to after I lost interest in dropped off the hacking scene for about a year. This contest was just the excuse I needed to make it. And it was fun.

So... here you go: Tidal Swamp.

I'm not going to spoil the surprise, but I used Layer 2 to make a gimmick that I've personally never seen before... hope you enjoy it.
NNID: JoshButton (Nickname: Buttons)
SMM Bookmark Account: Click here. Many fun levels to play! :)
Can I use the DISPLAY LEVEL MESSAGE ONE command fix for my level?
I have boredom... Guests?!? Now I have... FURY!


Awesome Face is awesome.

Poll: On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the hardest, how hard is your hack?

Go ahead. It's a Lunar Magic function and it's not like that sprite wasn't used in the original game.
I'll get started on a level once I re-download ALL SMW files because they had to be erased because of a friggin virus. I'm thinking of making a ghost house, I'm particularly good at making them.

EDIT: I'm Now Working on a currently unnamed ghost house where you start outside in the woods and the goal of the level is to escape the forest by flying off the roof of an abandoned mansion. Sorry, no screens yet, it's not ready for showing yet.
Speaking of ghost houses...

Sorry no screenies because snes9x refused to save them properly. And now I'm too tired to take them again in a decent form.
to anyone that downloaded Verdant FG: I've fixed it with the gameplay page and a readme, so get the fixed version.
I should probably note that from now on, use common sense when asking questions. As has been stated numerous times:

ANY FUNCTION USED IN LUNAR MAGIC AND THE ORIGINAL SUPER MARIO WORLD IS FAIR GAME.








Thank you.

Wow, it only took a morning? I must be a really slow level designer.

Anyway, mine's almost ready. A bit more beta testing, some extra stuff, and it will be done. :O
Your layout has been removed.
Mine is fully done, and I have distributed it to a few people by now. ;P
Appears to be excellent, some say too short, some say too long. o.O
Also, some people say it`s too difficult and some others that is too easy. D:

Well, I`ll get to fix some bugs someone found and I`ll post the ips when I`m done. ;)

However, GFX changing does not count >_>
I wonder what a HFD opcode would do in ASM...

That's how you know you have a good level :p

And you're not slow pieguy, it took me several days to finish what would become my entry.

What the hey, I'll enter. Good way to flex my level-making muscles.

EDIT: Here's the first screen of my level, "Boo-st Western" (Working Title):



It's a hotel overrun by Boo's and Mario must work his way to the roof for a battle with the manager, a Big Boo.
So here is my entry. Mountain Heights, I called it. I`ve been working on it since the first day. Finished it yesterday, but today I "polished" it. The theme of the level is to reach the top of the mountain. Of course, you visit different areas and go inside the mountain itself.

Also, this:


See those blocks that connect the pipes? They`re ON/OFF blocks with an edited palette. I just post it here because someone, whom I showed it to before, thought they were custom GFX. :P

GFX editing is a function of LM, so it's fair game?
That's not a part of the original SMW, so no, unless the only graphics you're using are original SMW graphics.

...Are you kidding me? I told you back on PAGE 2 that you can't use the in LM graphics editor! Have you SEEN any other levels using custom graphics? No! And that's because they understand what we mean by NO CUSTOM GRAPHICS!

Good god...

You and S.N.N better work this out, FirePhioenix. Your statement about LM's GFX editor contradicts what S.N.N said above...
I think SNN's big text worked that out already. :O

Though, people are ignoring it and asking the same stupid questions over and over and over.
Your layout has been removed.
But how many times do we have to say that you can't edit graphics at all? We must have said it at least once a page!

Listen, the whole point of this contest is to see who can create the best level using only what SMW provides. That means no new graphics, no modifying graphics, no ripped and added graphics, no custom graphics, no custom music, no ASM hacks, no HDMA additions, no custom sprites, no custom blocks, no use of the patches on the site and anything else that would lead to something that SMW did not have in the first place.

Is that a good enough explanation for what you can't do?
No ASM hacks EXCEPT for the ones that LM adds in there.

Well, SNN said that "Everything in LM is fair game" There's a GFX editor in LM, therefore that's fair game.
