TD4C #3: The Crater Full Release

LINK DELETED

The Crater is now released, after a year and three months of hard work, numerous transfers and millions of bugs to fix, and a lot of trying hours trying to come up with ways to fix stupid things, we have finally released the very first hack of the revised Devious Four Chronicles, not to mention a COMPLETE remake of our first hack since we came into SMW hacking about three years ago. I can remember just pulling up Lunar Magic about a year ago and clicking the mouse, putting underground slopes and what not on the second level, just wishing I was more further in the game, but I never imagined it would turn into what it became! I am finally just so excited to get this released, the hacking standards here are very hard to meet, especially with a hack as big as this, the ROM was practically full to the point where the slightest edit in Lunar Magic would crash the ROM, but after some slight deleting of tiles in levels made before 1.9 was released, there is some small room left in the ROM. I hope you all enjoy this, and if the hack doesn't get through the Moderation, (probably because of a bug on the OW that SHOULD be fixed (especially after placing goal points in every level just to see if it all worked fine)) we'll most likely fix whatever they tell us to and then resubmit it, I don't want to wait anymore. We've put off the hack for about a month and a half just for our beta-testers to try getting all the bugs to us, and we had some good beta-testers, Especially KarateKid and Hailstorm, thanks guys.

But now I will try to present you with our first full release, hopefully moderation won't be too strict, but I do warn you, the hack can get quite hard near the end, and there are some LONG levels, notably SCORPION's Base and Hunter's Capitallarium (Cap-it-al-lair-re-um) and the last level.

NOTE:
Our beta-testers had some numerous trouble navigating the complex OW set-up, notably around the Red Lands. To help you out, please read this, I would have put something in the hack to help you navigate, but alas, the ROM is full, so please read it here. I'll put in bold and yellow for those who love to skim past texts like this:

After you beat all the Hunter's Cyber Castle levels and SCORPION's Base, the pipe next to Darkness Palace should be open, just head right on Darkness Palace after you beat those two levels, everything else should tell you where to go next.
SCORPION's base must be re-entered to continue until you beat the SCORPION boss.

-You will have to lose a life, but just before you die, a 1-UP Mushroom will be there grant you the life back.

Well, I'm going to leave it to that then, have fun!

Feel free to LP this or something, but no hacks should be based from this ROM, nor any GFX ripped from it, though the hack is left open in LM if you feel like exploring the ROM.

Here are some images.


Images are long gone. Move on.
Finally it's here!! Looks quite epic from the images! I can't wait to see your work!

I'm downloading it right now!#w{=P}
You're more than welcome. As I said before, it was an honor beta-testing a game made by two of my favorite members of this site.

From when I first saw the demo, I knew that the game was going to be really good. The remaining levels surpassed my expectations. When I finished beta-testing the last level, I knew it was one of the best hacks that I have played up to that point. Fans of Hunter and SCORPION will definitely not be disappointed.

OMG this hack is so awesome, dude! It has the look & feel of a brand new Mario game. I've been playing it for two days now, & I haven't had this much satisfaction in playing a SMW hack in a long time. Has everything you ever need in a hack:

Brand New Story
Custom Graphics
Custom Sprites
Custom ASM
Custom Bosses

This hack definitely made my weekend & I recommend it to anyone who's looking for a SMW hack that has the look & feel of a brand new game, & is pretty much tired of the same old story where Bowser kidnaps Peach & Mario has to go out & save her.

Unfortunately, there seemed to have been a screw up with OW, even after fixing everything. An event was set to activate near the end of the hack, but said event was already activated a bit before. We're sorry for the inconvience. I PMed a hack moderator, to update the patch with a version "1.1". If you download and see a "TD4C3-Crater v1" and not "v1.1", then the patch has yet to be updated.

EDIT: Unfortunately, the hack folder can not be updated, but instead needed to be re-uploaded. Well, here is the fixed version. Sorry for the inconviece.

The Crater v1.1
Ladies & Gentlemen, I've finally beaten this hack, after 4 days of hard work & dedication. It wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it. This is easily the best new hack I've played in a while. I look forward to playing this game again.

Have you played it yet? The graphics are only part of the reason I enjoyed it. What I liked most about The Crater was the plot and level design.

I've been a fan of theirs for a few years now, and this hack was one of their best.

^This very much. (The Plot is amazing IMO) I'm a good length into the hack so far and must say that I'm really enjoying it...like a lot. I haven't really played a hack that kept me wanting to come back to play it for a long while but this one's kept me wanting to play every minute (Had to stop because I don't want to beat it too fast.)

I agree with what EddyCartoon said about it feeling like a brand new Mario Game.

The world you're in. Is it called SCORPION's Synth? The Synth is the last world in the game.

yes i think morning i can beat the final levels....And i believe they're pretty long

Yes they are. The Tower is made up of five stages, and all five of them are not only long, but pretty difficult too.

Did you get the update that Scorpion released this morning? There was a bug in the version you downloaded that would have prevented you from going to the fifth and final part of The Tower. The update fixed that problem, so you will be able to finish the game.

When I got to the final stage of the final level, I was imaging to myself that Hunter & Scorpion had created a gigantic evil Final Boss Monster Mech that they themselves were gonna use to destroy Mario once & for all. Instead, I got to fight both Hunter & Scorpion in their fully resurrected forms.

Ok, I played the hack a while and I got that it's VERY COOL!
Trust me guys, this is a high-quality hack, and if I can do it, I want to rate it:

Story: 9\10 You tought such a complex story...you also used a lot of dialogs with WVF dialogue patch tool, but sometimes it's difficult to understand...it's not your fault...I'm Italian;

Graphics 10\10 Full vote! Why? You created your graphics by you! And they are also very cool, cooler than a graphic-rip;

Music 8\10 Cool music here! Sample banks and other stuff...only thing is that you used a music multiple times. But don't worry: the musics are ok;

Level design 7\10 You worked hard for making these levels, I tell this to you as hacker: spending a lot of time in a level isn't so "funny". Only one thing: some levels are too long, and boring, like the ones where you have to go to Hunter's castle...

Gameplay 8\10 Our loved SMW classic gameplay is already funny, you modified it with WallJumps and Koopa player...or I have to say Alanea player? Anyway it's good.

Total 42\50 An high rate hack! Congratulation for your good work!#w{=P}
(When your hack got accepted I will move this rating in the review "habitat")
I'd love to LP your hack, metalgearhunter, but I have a problem.

I tried downloading it from the link you provided in your first post, but it gave me the "File not found" error. I even tried right-clicking on the link and selecting "Save As..." but it just gave me a 15kb file that claims it's NOT an IPS file, even though it has the IPS icon.

Yes, I searched in the Hacks section, but nothing came up.

Currently LP'ing: None at the moment.
The download worked fine for me. Did you download V1.1 in the hacks waiting to be moderated?

BTW, is there any reason why the first Hint Palace mentions about there being only 3 Feathers in the demo when this is clearly the FULL version and the fact that I have found like 10 of these so far? #w{:s}

OH DURR HURR. I completely forgot all about the "Hacks waiting to be moderated" link in the Hacks section.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll work on LP'ing the hack later today. :P

That's not much of a problem, it was really overlooked. If the hack is accepted onto the central, we'll try to get a MOD to update the patch to fix that error.

Your layout has been removed.
I played the whole hack 2 times and it's one of the best hacks so far.Can't wait to see more episodes of The Devious Four Chronicles.Now to rating

Story:10/10 Brand new story and sometimes complex. For those who are not interested in story so much then they can just skip.

Graphics:10/10 I've heard that your graphics are not ripped just made by yourself.For that you have10/10.Not only for this but...best graphics in my opinion

Sprites:10/10 Custom sprites and crazy enemies (especially at the end) i like them

Bosses:9/10 Cool bosses...but the last battle with scorpion it has just one attack.It should have as a plus torpedo or fireball.But it's okay.

Levels:10/10 I liked every level in this hack.They're pretty hard and long.Some says that they're too long.But i find them okay.IT HAS THE BEST FINAL LEVEL I HAVE SEEN IN ANY HACK SO FAR!

Music:10/10 Not much to say there.Excellent choices of music

59/60: BOTH YOU DID A GREAT JOB IN THIS HACK!!!!LOLLOL
