MAGI'S OFFICIAL GRAPHICAL OVERHAUL THREAD HYPE

Going to completely rewrite this post here:

First off, this work you're doing is excellent over all. I'm loving what you're doing. But there is one thing that needs to be changed about the latest thing you showed off: clouds. Those "clouds" are not clouds, but graphics that was drawn up for Ice (in the Frost Fried Frenzy bg AMH made.) I'm sure you've seen how much that background has been recycled and how much its graphics have been as well. Could you be a dear and do my mountain background justice by getting rid of those ugly* glaciers in the sky?

*ugly as in: they look ugly in this background, the graphics themselves are okay; but whoever assembled that must've been a desperate (and lazy) person... There are tons of better clouds in this game, why did they have to use ice of all things...

It's unintended but there's nothing I can do about it (unfortunately, since those bright outlines look really bad #ab{;_;})

It's ok I hate the glacier clouds too (the trick is SMB-tier bad). Don't worry, I'll change them.

--------------------
Tomorrow I'll give you a fixed GFX file to get that sorted out so you can carry on with your plans for that. So don't worry about that. #w{=D}

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
So let me see if I understand this. Magiluigi decided to redraw a bunch of graphics an order to make the game better? While lots of the graphics do look indeed better does this also mean that the project is back on track?

looks like there's some progress so the answer is yes.

just check back sometime in the summer when there is a newer base rom or a public beta available. there's a bunch of stuff that's still being worked on, besides the graphics.

edit: though I really like the graphics of the Crystalline Citadel level; they're like eye candy to me. whoever made them gets a gold medal from me.
ayy~>lmao

HUGE thanks to LX5.

I'll post more stuff and update the OP later.

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

Your graphical skills scare the hell of out me sir.

Excellent job.
Layout by LDA during C3.
Nice work as always, that looks great.
The moon and its reflection not moving at all just bothers me a bit despite its realism...that might just be me, but anything that doesn't move in the background just drives me nuts.

Otherwise, it looks beautiful.
loldead

With the newest version of Lunar Magic finally out (and also being compatable with the latest BaseROM), I've decided to take a look and see how the SMWCP2 project is. Looking at certain Layer 2 and 3 palettes and backgrounds, a few look rather...horrid. SO...I have come here to fix that. It's nothing flashy, just to make it a bit better.

Let's start off with Hydrostatic Halt:

ugh ~~> oooh

Volcanic Panic:

gross ~~> yum

13B (Unnamed) - Perplex:

blech ~~> pretty (OFF)

(The background is palette-animated. People don't really like the palette of this level in general, and request you improve it, Magiluigi.)

13B (Unnamed) - Anger

wut ~~> RAGE VIBE MODE ACTIVATED

Pyro-Cryo Castle: (Frank Boss)

Ice:

umm ~~> brrr

Fire:

meh ~~> cool

...And that should be every major change to some palettes.
R.I.P. eXcavator... You will always have a place in our hearts...
Much better!

--------------------
Oh, and I'm working on a secret project.
these overhauls are looking pretty good. what else is left on this project.

it would be great if the people working on this tried to finish it by the end of 2015.
Tbh, at this point I don't really care if SMWCP2 is going to be finished soon or not anymore, but it'd be nice if we at least had some updates from the people who are still working on it. No pressure intended, I'm just curious on the status of this project.

Btw, those are nice edits @Falconpunch, but I think it would've been wiser if you had waited for Magi's graphical updates before worrying about the palettes. Saying this because he may make somewhat big changes to the graphics, possibly rendering your palette updates unfitting to them.
We'll be like diamond: brilliant and persistent. ~

I agree completely, even more, I feel that it's completely ridiculous to revamp all of the graphics when the drive to finish the hack in the first place has sputtered into nonexistence months prior.

It's like "Hey guys! I know you all are completely drained from making this collab hack but... let's do it all over again!(graphics wise)"
Actually, Magi or the graphical overhaul as a whole isn't responsible for SMWCP2's delay. There are still bugs to be fixed and there's still the credits music. So yeah, since there's still major stuff to be taken care of, there's no harm in improving the graphics in the meantime.

nobody's being pressured. this site is holding 4 collaboration projects for whatever reason so it's not that surprising that none of them get finished.

--------------------
The fact the project is not getting finished is reason enough to not host anymore officially in my book. #tb{¬_¬} Seriously, it's been 5+ years, how is this not finished yet!? I can complete a full length hack in half that time... maybe even less! We as a community really should be a bit ashamed of ourselves.
Holy crap, I didn't even realize until today that in a few months it will finally be five years since the collab started (It's not exactly correct to say 5+ because it hasn't even hit the 5 year mark itself yet).

As tempting as what WYE said is, I'm still gonna have to say I think the final lap should be run and finish the hack once and for all. Like Gloomier said, considering how close it is to being finished, camcelling it now is kind of shaming.

Science teachers are too afraid to teach their students about the element of surprise.
btw I'm still doing this (currently animating the water in my islands BG) I'm just too lazy to keep editing posts and taking screenshots and all that sorry

At least post some of your new artwork. Your pixel art skillz are pretty damn good.
