Tip: Use ledge tiles (Act as: 100) before and after slopes. Using solid tiles (Act as 130) makes Mario lose speed while running on the slope.”

Change Mario for Luigi in the lives name
Forum Index - SMW Hacking - SMW Hacking Help - Change Mario for Luigi in the lives name
Pages: « 1 2 » Link
Hello, I'm working in a hack, and I wanted the game to be focused on Luigi. I already changed Mario's palletes for Luigi's, but I don't know how to edit the Mario that appears were the lives are seen. Anyone knows how to change them?

Oh, and if there's a better way to change Mario for Luigi, please tell me.

Open GFX28.bin and replace Mario with Luigi by overwriting the graphics then reinsert with Lunar Magic. You could also use the status bar editor but there are other places that use the graphics so you might as well replace.
The graphics in that file are in 2BPP GB format, by the way.

Copy your ROM into the same folder as the tool.
Open the tool and type in the path to a Graphics folder you get when you use #lm{extgfx} in Lunar Magic.
Enter he name of your ROM.

Now, you have the status bar and the graphics you can put in it.
Use the 1-8 key to switch through the colors.
Leftclick on any tile in the lower half of the creen to select it.
Leftclick on the statusbar to paste it.
Hit S to save.

Doesn't want to work... it says:
"One or more of the files GFX-28-2B.bin not found" What is wrong?

does the path to the folder you entered contain all the GFXxx.bin files?
I think you can even drag-drop the folder. That is, if you drag the folder onto the window. The path should appear then.
If it doesn't work, try removing the " that appear at the end and the front of the draged folder.

Nope, it doesn't want to work. I guess I will improvise, like saying ina note box something like: "Remember Luigi, your full name is Luigi Mario, that's why it says Mario up there". Thanks, anyway.

That's NOT a proper way to deal with things.
Saying something like that is just like saying "I know there's an error... I just don't know how to fix it"

Last resort:
Export your graphics using LM's #lm{extgfx}.
Copy the graphics folder in the same folder as the SMWSBE.exe
Copy your ROM to the same folder.
Start the tool
Type "Graphics" just like the name of the folder
Type your ROMname (best rename the ROM to something without spaces in id) and don't forget the .smc
Edit the ******* status bar.

Use YY-CHR to edit it. Copy the first tile from the original to another, the paste the L over the M tile, then the U to the A, and so on. It's really simple.
You want me to say it, fine. I'm a noob, OK. I don't know how to use those tools at all (except the status bar editor doesn't work). I been trying them sometime ago and I just dont know what to do.

YY-CHR is kinda like any image editor. I don't know how to create screenshots of my computer, so I can't show you a step-by-step guide...
Ok, I actually know this. Search a button in your computer that says ImprPant. That takes screenshots. If what happens is taht there's no ImprPant button, than I don't know (and if you already knew that, sorry)

Is it a System Program, a Keyboard function...?
1. open Lunar Magic
2. open your ROM in Lunar Magic
3. go into Options and make sure "Use joined GFX files" is unchecked
4. now click #lm{extgfx}
5. go to your ROM folder and you should see a folder named Graphics. open it
6. look for a file named GFX28.bin. open it with yy-chr
7. itll look jumbled because it defaults to 4bpp MSX(/Genesis) on BIN files (you should see this near the bottom). switch it to 2bpp GB.
8. you should see Mario and Luigi's name as clear as day. Copy Luigi's name and paste them over Mario's.
9. save
10. in lunar magic, press #lm{insgfx}
11. done. test it


tell me which step you get stuck on

@MercuryPenny: click printscreen on your keyboard. your screen is now on the clipboard. paste into mspaint or something and crop

To clarify, you need to use the zoom function and copy over.

Okay thanks.
Um, no image appears. No Mario nor Luig letters. Absolutly nothing, and it is at 2bpp GB. Maybe its because my lap can't read .bin archives.

PS: Sorry to everyone if I sound like a jerk. I'm just frustrated.
