Hmm... hey, guys. Still no IPS this time :/

But anyway, do you guys have any idea for the last section? I mean, the one that you just need to walk forward and get the Goal Roullete prize? I was thinking on something like this:

On the very ending of the burning tree, there's a little "hole" on the wall where you jump out of it. Then there will be a small section showing Mario falling down, and finally, a little silhouette section representing what was once a happy forest, wich now is just a bunch of smoke and ashes... so... is it good, or does anyone have a better idea?

--------------------
That sounds good to me, assuming you don't go too fancy with a tiny section at the end.
YAY! IPS!

The cutscene graphics aren't done yet due to major laziness.

--------------------
There is one error I found in your level, Magiluigi.



According to this screenshot, the green Paratroopa does not land on the tree ledge. Instead, he lands on the question-block containing the mushroom/fire flower and falls down in the pit. Either place the Paratroopa somewhere else or remove it.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed...NOT! :D
You are forgetting where this level is on the map and oversaturating the level with sprites. Many of these screenshots can easily be handled by simply removing some enemies:


The Green Koopa and Spiny are unnecessary, especially near two message boxes.


Minor palette mismatch.


Oversaturation #1. This is a very difficult area to deal with for early world 2. I'd remove the hopping flame and make the Piranha a regular jumping one. Better yet, remove that pointless kicking Koopa.


The Sumo Bros. Lightning causes glitched tiles. I'd either remove the sprite entirely or remove any sprites around it to prevent interference.


Oversaturation #2. Removing either the hopping flame or the Super Koopa would fix it here.


I'd remove the hopping flame.


You're kidding, right? That's an extremely obnoxious jump by world 2's standards.


Oversaturation #3. I'd remove one or two of these.


Pointless Spiny. It just walks off the edge before the screen even really gets that high.


This part is annoying. If you shift the Spiny a bit more to the left and remove the Super Koopa (which doesn't pose much of a threat anyway), you'd fix this.


That jump is too annoying for this point in the game.

-No screenshot, but don't make the final "burnt" area longer than a couple of screens. The level itself is already long enough.


It's a good level, barring the vast amount of sprites. You need to keep in mind that we're trying to have a steady difficulty curve, and this is overdoing it a bit. Like I said though, most of these issues can be easily fixed.

They're supposed to represent Norveg's minions getting away...

Not my fault, if I change it, I'll have to change the global GFX... if I'm allowed to, I'll fix this.

[...]I think that the glitched sprite thingy will be fixed... you know, S.N.N. could apply the patch Roy made that fixes this.

And by "the patch Roy made", I mean this patch.

Blame the Hopping Flame. I removed it by the way.

I fixed it right after I submitted the IPS.

OK, then. Fixed.

I know.


Anyway, did Jimmy make the HDMA code already?

Extras



I should have something witty to put here (even if it's just to update dated info), shouldn't I?

Advertising Space

So, where's the secret exit in this level, or did you not add it yet? I hope you're not like what several people do with secret exits (and even Nintendo in some cases) and just throw one into the level, treating it like an afterthought.


By the way, you have a poor sprite memory setting- sprites disappear and garble up all over the first firey section which leads to a bunch of BS moments. Additionally, you're doing what Jerry did with SMWCP (read: cram as much content, in your case music, into the level) which hilariously does the level more harm than good. As far as I'm concerned, SNN's fire level track can extend all the way into the burning autoscroll segement instead of the boss music. The burnt section I suppose could keep its music.

The secret exit isn't designed yet, I'm trying to find a way to hide it (I'm not very good at this).

About the music, I only chose the boss music because I thought it'd fit the "Burning Tree" area (it lives up the action on said area in my opinion). But I'll change it anyway... :/

Umm... did anyone here wonder how I'll fix the cutoff on the burning tree?

I would just make another ExGFX file to include graphics that will go in the tree interior and avoid cutoff.

--------------------
I no longer have interest in SMW Hacking as I did when I first started several years ago.
Magiluigi, I like how you used the boss music on the burning tree area.

--------------------
I'm sorry, but I'm not good at SMW hacking, so I gave up on it. That means I'm leaving SMWCentral. Bye!
Got an update for us here? It's been a week and a half since we last heard from you.
Oh my! Sorry for posting no updates these days, I've been busy, and also, even when my status on SMWC is "online" most of the time, sometimes I'm not even in the PC (for example, the last 2 hours or so).

Well, anyway, on the burning tree area, I was thinking on using Layer 3 ExGFX for the fire, and some levelASM code that makes you die when you hit like... the last "block" of the screen.
Like this:

(the blue line is where the player should die)

I thought of using levelASM to economize sprite slots, also, the same HDMA code from the burning part could be used on the tree part.

That's all for now... I think...

--------------------
Is all of the cutoff on that tree intentional, to show holes in the tree, or accidental for not enough layers? I'm not sure because I would have thought somebody would have brought it up, but it just seems to bug me when I see it.

--------------------
Current Projects: "Legend of Zelda: Balance of Power" (A Zelda Classic quest)
It isn't by any chance intentional, I'll use Layer 3 ExGFX to fix that (tree structure will be Layer 1, the tree BG Layer 2 and the fire Layer 3).

--------------------
So, what exactly is going on with the level at this point?

*poke poke*


I think he's dead sir....o.o
Layout by LDA during C3.
Didn't I contact you just a little while ago about this level?

...Sorry for the delay, those 2 weeks were the last ones at school before vacation, and I was busy (last sunday I even got sick!).



(!) Oh! I forgot to request the LevelASM code! *facepalm*

--------------------

It's possible...but its always good to at least post some sort of progress in your thread even if you have nothing to show at the moment.
Layout by LDA during C3.
I see this level is using hdma in the background color, but would it be possible to make it brighter at the bottom and darker at the top, to simulate better fire/smoke?

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
HI!! I couldn't log in on the past 3 days, but guess what? HERE I AM!

Well, after I ported the level to a newer base ROM, I realized that I had a even newer one, so I'll have to do it all over again :/

Though I have a question: the fire "blocks" used in my level are the same as the ones in "Incineration Station", but they appear/disappear too quickly for a world 2 level, so... could I claim two blocks that are actually edits of the original ones, but they take more seconds to reappear? Let's say they only disappear for 1 second, the edit could add 2 more.
Obviously, I'd have to request them on the request thread. But, can I?



*deep breath* ahhh, it feels so good to be back...

EDIT: *regarding xlk's post* yep, it'll have fancy HDMA effects.
