So, I am currently working on a SMW Hack. This hack is based on the most known hacks out there - Super Mario Odyssey. BMF (Robert Flory) is the creator of Super Mario Odyssey, which sadly was never finished. I decided to give this feeling back of this polished piece. BMF even was happy, that "someone else has decided to carry the torch, in a sense". Now it's time to get YOUR opinion. I draw ALL of the graphics by myself, also many of them are heavily based on SMO.

What do you say to this background? It includes a very nice parallax scrolling effect aswell. :)

I got tired of all of the nonsense and poor formatting in the sprite/items names of Hyrule Magic so I started hacking them.

Before:


After:


I'm not done yet, but the screenshots spreak for themselves really.

Kinda funny to be hacking a hacking program.

Great work. From what I understand, anything that can be done to improve the functionality of HM is a good thing.

This is pretty much just cosmetic, but it will still help out a lot. There were a good number of sprites that were just labelled with hex numbers and some of the names were just dead wrong. It was also really annoying to place a fireblade or spike roller in one of your dungeons and have no idea which direction it turns or moves (which is an important detail). I'm also doing things to keep the list origanized like putting "(Boss)" in front of all of the boss sprites, "NPC-" in front of all the NPC's, listing things like "Left Pipe" and "Right Pipe" instead with "Pipe" first and then the direction so that all the different variations of it are no longer on opposite ends of the list. There's also a good number of sprites that were not intended to be placed directly in dungeons or the overworld, but (I'm guessing) just stored in the same block of data so the author made the mistake of adding them to the list with all the rest of the sprites. The majority of those simply cannot be used (some could if you were creative though). Things such as that will have a "zz-" placed at the front of their names so that they will appear at the end of the list and out of the way.

Right now I've got my first draft of all of the name changes done, reinsert and all of the formatting has been done so that the list doesn't have bugs. I'll probably go over them one of two more times before I consider it complete. I might even have this finished by tonight.

Hey everyone. I'm just doing a quick showoff of what I have done my rom hack, so I may not do as much plus I haven't thinking about the title of my hack.  :-\  Sooo... this screenshot below for my progress. XD








New bonus level for 1-1  :D



Preview Level 1-3 leads to water level.



New tileset for "Anchor away" such as the ground.



:D

I know I should've change the palette for the ground, but the status bar is what I am concern about for palette changing. :-\

Hey guys, would like to hear your thoughts on the lava pools in this map screen. I was trying to make them look like they're slightly depressed but I'm not sure I got it right.

You lose the depressed look a little with the fade applied at the bottom of the pools.  Specifically you have a darker orange at the bottom.  Leave the darker orange fade all around but not at the bottom might help make them appear deeper (if that's the goal).  It would work as is though if you chose to go with it.

Does Capcom graphical stuff on SNES have some standardized compression library?
That would help me a ton :)

A pothead Link carrying around "dust", eh?

Why is Conker grey in the bottom-left shot?

Nice! Looks like a completely different game almost.
