Also, I can't seem to find HyperBuu's newest desert BG. Where is it? >_> Or didn't he upload it yet?
However, I'll probably not use the BG anyway, since it uses both BG1 and FG2. (If FG2 only has the Pokey GFX, then I'll use it.)
*Takes a deep breath*
OH GOD, I WANT TO PLAY THIS SO BAD! OMFGLMAOWTFLOL!
Now since that's out of my system, I've got to say this hack is looking pretty good so far. I'm looking forward to the demo of this hack.
Good screenshots. The only issue is on the 3rd SS, there's a small problem with the light parts of your ground... Not a big one, but that's a issue. I don't know how to explain exactly... I hope you can understand it.
It's looking good... I hope you can draw a good swimming GFX for the pokey... =)
One thing that bugs me here is that Bowser would never admit to anyone that he's lacking or weak. Have you played SMRPG by any chance?
So maybe make him say "A whelp like you will never defeat them!" And move the Ha Ha Ha behind the welcome home.
@uNkNowN5642: I thought of adding the air meter as well, but how about water levels? It would be strange if Pokey could stay in water levels as long as he wants, but he died after staying too long in a small pool of water.
@Waweegee: Yes, but why would Bowser kidnap Pokey's brothers then? Just for kicks? I think he should have a reason...
Also, I'll remove the "Ha Ha Ha".
Perhaps he wanted somebody to torture? Also, I think you might want to take that text out and retype it. Sometimes these things are funny like that. Maybe it's the green text at the bottom. Notice how the "word" "Bowser" is straight? Since I don't know anything about this stuff that was all I could think of. For the toad, he probably should have a more yellow, garb. Also, perhaps you ought to put a few bright-ish spots on it.
Well. I quite fancy playing as other SMW characters. Mario gets "old" (though still fun,) but old. We've got what..3? Hacks being made for alternative characters, and already 2 in the submission. [Bob-omb, Ninji]
I hope this becomes a fad, and more of these types of games come out. Good luck making it, as I quite like the way this is turning out.
-------------------- Your layout has been removed.
I don't know, I rather like the story. I don't see anything odd aboutBowser admitting to one minion that he's not quite sure if another minion (or group thereof) is up to snuff, especially if it's a tried and tested minion vs. a group of unproven recruits. It's surely better for his pride than sending a bunch of utterly incompetent dopes out against Mario, only to have them fail miserably and completely embarass the Koopa name. Give the man some credit.
Also, do cactuses really need to breathe? Well, I guess they sort of do, but not quite in the same way as animals (i.e. no lungs and the like). Then again, Pokey is a succulent, so it's possibly he could absorb too much water too quickly and split open or something...
I finally figured out how to fix the 2nd cutscene!
Also, I'm going on vacation tomorrow (until Friday), and there's still pretty much work to do (the 2nd half of the last level, a bonus level and some many fixes), so don't expect the demo to be out today or tomorrow.
But hey, it's better than playing the demo now and finding it's full of bugs, glitches and unfinished levels.
