I skimmed through the past few posts. Do you have caitsith's savefile? It's needed to call up the SMA4 communication screen on the e-Reader screen.

This editor you're working on, is that an editor for level cards, or is it an editor for the actual game?

Oh, and Kiiro is the one making the editor right? Now, I just wanna know what CopyRIGHThunter is doing.

It's an editor for all types of e-Cards for SMA4.
Even though, it does not edit Level Cards yet, but it can read uncompressed e-Levels. But it makes Power-Up Cards and Demo Cards.

Haven't been around for a little bit. Looks like i need to update the thread title. I continue to be impressed with your work Kiiro. I can't wait for UpaLuppa to complete the sprite list.


As for what I do - I am not making any kind of editor. That is all Kiiro's doing. My current understanding is that Kiiro is doing all that he can to build an editor, but he is waiting on a Sprite List from Upa.


I am just an enormous SMB3 enthusiast. I'd love to make levels for the SMA4 version, and I definately have the chops for it. Check out JHP's SMB3 levels to see what I can do.

I started this topic ages ago as a petition to the hacking community to develop a hacking tool for SMA4. I am largely the media vessel for this thing. I use this topic and my YouTube channel to generate interest in SMA4. It seems to have worked. I've got a half million views on all of the stuff I've uploaded, and this topic seems to be the most visited in the ROM hacking part of acmlm.

I'm still eagerly monitoring this situation. When anything video worthy breaks, it'll defiantly go up on YouTube. Please keep watching guys, and thank you Kiiro and Upa for continuing to progress with this.

Yeah.
It's an editor for e-Cards, which is not a big problem, since you don't need the ROM to work with it.

With the correct spirte list data and level data for the original levels that shouldn't be much of a problem. Though you'd probably need a whole new editor for that. Bacause there isn't a limitation in the ROM to use the special sprites in the original game, is there?

Does this mean´╗┐ that you can make a save file of SMA4 Japanese with all the e-world Levels loaded?

For a long time, I've been wanting to get a fully "legit" SMA4 save with e-world Levels loaded, but to make it "legit" it would obviously have to be a Japanese save since the levels were never released in other parts of the world.

Here's an updated spritelist for SMA4! It has all the bank 1 sprites included:
http://acmlm.kafuka.org/uploader/get.php?id=3020

But there's not much useful between the sprites that were missing in the previous upload.
Parabeetles, Ghosts flying across the screen from both sides and the ridable delphine from SMW, that's all there is of interest...

Edit:
Sorry, I've forgotten to actually post the link... *~*
It's fixed now!

Cool !! I can finally continue SMA 0.33 a little more.

By the way, i found what's actually Bank 0 Sprite E0 and E1 :
Bank 0 Sprite E0 : Camera Shift Up (Begin Shift)
6 bytes Sprite
Parameter 1 : Byte Link (links to E1, so the game doesn't mix up)
Parameter 2 : Camera Shift to how many pixels up.

Bank 0 Sprite E1 : Camera Shift Up (End Shift)
6 bytes Sprite
Parameter 1 : Byte Link (links to E0, so the game doesn't mix up)
Parameter 2 : Camera Shift to how many pixels up.

EDIT (for saving purpose):
Bank 0 Sprite EA : Camera Block (Can't go Left)
5 bytes Sprite
Parameter : ???

Bank 0 Sprite C8 : Vertical Scroll Effect
6 bytes Sprite
Parameter 1 : ???
Parameter 2 : ???

Congratulations.

So, which one's the most significant byte? Does E0.Param1 on 0x12 and E1 on 0x34 shift the camera 0x1234 pixels or 0x3412 pixels up? And am I right to assume it's a signed number, so 0xFFFF would shift one pixel down?

So wrong.

Awesome! Some activity! Thanks for the work on the spritelist Upa. I can't wait to see what you do with this Kiiro. I'm rooting for you! Time to update the topic's title.

If you know any of these Upa, I wanted to ask...

Do the Rideable Dolphins from SMW work? Are there different variations?
-The Forward Facing up-and down that stays in the same place
-The Jumping Left and Right Ones
-The Swarm of Dolphins

Also, (sorry) the "Ghosts Flying Across the screen from both sides" - Is that the "Boo Buddy Swarm" that appeared in the 1st part of Donut Ghost House and the second part of Forest Ghost House?

Do any of these other enemies appear work from the ripped graphics?
-Porcu-Puffer
-FishBone
-Fuzzy
-Swooper
-YI Style "Bigger Boo"
and
-the Unnamed "Angry Fireball" enemy?


Just curious. If you don't know, then it's no big deal. I know you're busy.

I would like to see e-reader support first. a SMA4 ROM editor that uses the e-level format/sprites would be worth it though.
