I was struck with an interesting idea back while I was working my pathetically boring job. Since it is unlikely this hack will pull on more than 30 level designers, what if all the current level designers are given a section of exgfx pointers they can use when creating levels, to simplify assembly? i.e. Hacker A is given section 100 - 127 (255 doesn't divide evenly, but it is also unlikely a single user will need upwards of 120 exgfx pointers anyway).

Using this system, each user can keep all of his/her completed levels within easy access on their computer, and if the person responsible for assembling the completed product reaches any graphical errors, said user can beam him a copy of their exgfx folder, without worrying about conflicts.

Sound like a plan?

There's still the problem of organizing Map16 pages.

I got a question is it possible to make the final boss like a sidescroller version of Screaming Mantis (From MGS4)

We already have a decent concept for the final boss standing, and unless you can come up with a reason as to why that fits with the premise of the hack, no.

boingboing: check the wiki, we actually have map16 pages reserved for people in the levels table. Also, xeruss, since I'm the one who's going to be assembling the final version of the ROM (unless it goes to bh89 after that), I'm just going to go by the ExGFX files listed in the levels table on the wiki.

Actually, I use that table a lot.

Since it's been a while since the progress of the project has been comprehensively checked, or much has been done at all... have any new levels been completed since then? Are there any new test ROMs?

Also, what's our current position on the whole SuperFX thing/fitting the game into 2MB?

Some graphics, most if not all the levels...

Honestly, it all depends on the graphics, and how much we can squeeze out of them. If nobody uses an original GFX slow, for example, then we should be able to overwrite that GFX slot with the ExGFX, which saves space.

If you're looking for a grassland replacement that uses the original Map16 tiles, I have one for you that I custom made. Replaces GFX15.bin

Can be for caves too with a little imagination and paletting work.

/me sucks at making levels, wheeee

Although, I was planning on using default ghost house tilees and crate graphics... (I swear SMW has them in one of the tilesets...)

I don't dislike that tileset, but it makes me think on dirt more than grassland.

The pattern in the dirt is too prominent. Fade it a little, it should look better.

GM's observation is correct. Additionally, you might want to watch out to not have two opposing black borders collide with each other - the resulting 2 pixel wide black line looks rather out of place.

Tyty: yeah, there's crates in the ghost house tileset. I think they're under tileset specific objects.

So, what's the status on this? I've gotten a bit more done, but that's not nearly enough to get this finished

I'd still feel better throwing in graphics instead of a level. Those I can do. But I want to see my level done, so I might as well re-download LM again because I just got my laptop back.

Progress made on the /b/asement: 0%
