Title: Metroid: Space Complex (Metroid 1 NES Hack WIP)
Post by: Mindflower on May 08, 2017, 11:43:11 am
Hello everyone, this is a thread for my new hack.
It's also featured on Metroid Construction (http://forum.metroidconstruction.com/index.php/topic,4094.0.html).

Working Title:

METROID
SPACE COMPLEX


(http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l603/mindflowersparty/Mobile%20Uploads/test%20rom-5_zpslpzg4gmx.png)

It's located in deep Space, in which Samus is going to experience a great Adventure. She travels from planet to planet finding secrets, fighting enemies and bosses, travelling through meteorites. The world is some interconnected space.
As of the background story honestly, i have to think about that one. Anyone good ideas? ;)


Current DEMO Version:
Space Demo v0.7
In case of interest just send a pm!


THEMES:
Brinstar - Open Alienated Space
Norfair - Floral Hills and Landscape / Temple
Kraid - Deep Cave
Ridley - Slimes and Mushrooms
Tourian - Glass + X

Goals in short:
Story line gets written.
Graphic gets completely overhauled. New Music Tracks get composed. Levels are built from scratch. Some new Upgrades gonna get featured.

Goals achieved:
Graphics and Background Music done partially (see numbers down below)
A Bomb Upgrade, healing and hurting Units are already implemented. There are plans for more!!

- in numbers -

GRAPHICS:
Brinstar 90%
Kraid 90%
Norfair 60%
Ridley 5%
Tourian 15%

BG MUSIC:
Brinstar 90%
Kraid 90%
Norfair 80%
Tourian 90%

LEVELS:
Brinstar 70%
Norfair 20%
Kraid 30%

FEATURES:
Healing and Hurting Tiles 100%
Bomb Upgrade / easier Bomb Jumping 50% (couldn't make it as an upgrade yet)
Walljump 0% (i would appreciate help here!!!!)
Springball 0% (help!!!?)
Spacejump 0% (is it even possible?)

Animations 20%
Slope Detection 0% (desperately waiting for Editroid 4 and new asm mods)



So far, i will give additional info and updates whenever i'm willing to or something new is implemented.
I've got the blessing of a job with a lot of free time and i get more experienced, thus i am optimistic of a completion of the whole thing.

I am very happy about critics, feedback of all kind, suggestions, or the opportunity to work together.
Especially in regards of asm modifications i would love help! :whoa:

Stay tuned. Cheers!  :bounce:

Great to see your interest!

At the moment I'm working some improvement proposals from the last playtest session into the Hack (I'm on metroidconstruction.com since October 2016), some minor polishes plus a few new screens.
The result will be Space Demo v0.7.
I guess it will be in the next two weeks.

Stay tuned  :beer:

Thanks. Regarding Samus' Sprite i experimented with some designs but am not really satisfied yet. Turns out shaping landscapes is far more easy for me than drawing good figurative designs. That being said, it's on top of my to do. Whenever I've got something finished worth mentioning I'll let you know and work it into the Hack.

Get ready for Rampage in the Temple!
It's dangerous here.

TEMPLE RAMPAGE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00qZKmd0O0E&index=6&list=PLgd6tGK8XIz39on7jY4Nduz9xav6Shh9s)





A Floral Sign of Life
Spoiler:
(http://i.imgur.com/x5uAALS.png)

Painting the enemies in the background's green colour palette makes them stand out less, but makes them merge/ blend with the background.
Especially because there are many green air tiles(passable for Samus and enemies), it goes for a little "hide and seek" atmosphere. Like ambushing sprites you didn't see at first.
What do you think, do you like that idea or is it too distracting (cause that's what i asked myself as well)...?
 Curious 'bout your opinions.
Cheers!

The Lab

Note: it was a fast sketch to accommodate all the lab tiles i painted thus far. I just wanted to know how it actually looks in the game (as those tiles were all painted during train rides over weeks, now). And it turns out nicely. But i need far more variation!

Title: Space Demo v0.7
Post by: Mindflower on May 22, 2017, 07:55:58 am
Hey people i decided to release another demo with the latest changes. Still it's far from being finished, but there's some sense of progress since Space Demo v0.6.

In case of interest shoot a pm!!


Some of the changes to the i remember :
Spoiler:
  • Used more of some sprite works of Demick's Roidz Hack,
    most noticeable the Samus Sprite (dude you did an awesome job here!)
  • Optimized the Missile Doors' look.
  • Made the game less linear.
  • Added a few new screens in all three areas. (Brinstar, Kraid, Norfair - the others are not even started)
  • Reworked some palettes.
  • Corrected a Palette swap bug.
  • Rebalanced certain areas.
  • Drew more background layers, most certainty in the cave.
  • Made the world even more connected.
  • Removed the Bounce on Hurt Effect of the Hurting Tiles (what do you think about this?)
  • Made some areas easier to navigate and traverse through (most noticeable in Brinstar's vertical shaft)
  • Won some free space by optimizing some of the Combo layouts.
  • Got rid completely (at least i hope so) of scrolling issues.
     

I couldn't get rid of at least two bugs, anyone some advice on those???

Other than that, have fun.
Very curious about your feedback!

Cheers!

Yep, an old screen, for those who playtested a later demo, but with more layers and polish.

Hey folks,

in the meantime i had plans how to do a slimy mushroom area.
Some little ideas i had during a trainride:

By the way:
Someone got a better picture hoster app than the imgur app? Too many times the upload doesn't work properly.

Graphics look interesting, I'm not really into Metroid but I might try this once it's released.

About image hosting sites, I use Photobucket, which works ok, but it usualy takes me more than 10 minutes to upload a single picture(this could actually be due to my internet speed but I'm unsure).
Ironicaly, Imgur is a little faster for me and rarely screws up, but a few people told me that Photobucket is better, so i switched.
There is also Imageshack, though I haven't really used it.

Honestly they are a bit underwellming at the moment.
The 2nd one has best proportions, but 3rd and 4th one are shaded much better.
But keep on trying.
If you can do nice backgrounds then surely with a bit of will you'll be able to learn how to do nice sprites.

As I have some R&R tonight I made a concept reference if  you want to use it.  It should fit as there is some space in front of Samus's feet.  Do what you want with it.  Tried to make it look like the Zero Mission stance :)

Hey pal, thanks!
Unfortunately the sprite is 3 pixels too wide, but i sincerely cheer your design and will integrate it into a new sprite, mixing my and your ideas thus doing a 16*32px sprite.
Again thanks for your donation :)
P.S. The zero mission design is what i also had in mind. You nailed it!

Let's see what a sprite will come out in the end.  :angel:

Oh, was it too  big?  I  judged it from what I saw via a screenshot I took and looking at the YYCHR info it had so made it a tad bigger from the original to fit into the allotted area given.  No matter man, glad to help :)

Hey dude, my bad, your sprite was NOT too big. I did not consider there is an extra tile for the "gun-part". I just begin to make sense of the confusing arrangement of the sprite tiles. There is some immense amount of work coming with all that!

Furthermore i plan to do an own sprite for every area. I will have a  "lit helm-part" for the cave part, a big helmet and a breathing device, a scuba for a possible underwater part and so on.
but that's a long term task for sure.

I inserted the new sprite and messed with the palettes as you can see.

Thanks.
I have not yet worked out a full fledged story. But i feel most comfortable with a kinda parallel universe story.
I work out more samus sprites over time. Right now i want to push the new landscape.

Hello Space Pirates,

first of a Happy New Year!

To prove i have done something, here's a picture of a the reorganization of the Green Tiles (means rounden up the design while minimizing the tiles needed). I am quite happy with the result. This is a playground for the new Tiles:
(http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l603/mindflowersparty/Mobile%20Uploads/new%20Norfair_zpstcwubv6c.png)
I copied all Tiles from Norfair to Ridley Area (long and tedious work let me tell ya), cause i recognized this being better suited for the Green Area. And the Temple.
Norfair is now a rather liquid surrounding ^^.

And a random landscape picture of Brinstar to show the final (at least i think so) palette choice
As mentioned earlier.
(http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l603/mindflowersparty/Mobile%20Uploads/Brinstar%20color_zpsr6bpf6d9.png)

I composed three new songs with MetroidTuner. I am slowly ready to release a full album  :^_^: Makes me wonder if and how i can squeeze all this into the ROM.
I am gonna upload the new songs anytime soon.


I experimented with snow as well (example picture above), but that's nothing to show off, yet.

Furthermore i drew a few plans and ideas. This time i want to do it much more foresighted; i wanna know beforehand what i am doing the best I can. A neat little example is this :
(http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l603/mindflowersparty/Screenshot_20180106-181232_zpsrbaz6opv.png)

The old is on the left as the new one is on the right.  Still a random sprite palette and yes it does fit into the space that's assigned within the game's data.  Using and utilizing most of the space to make Samus look bulky by being in an actual suit.


Once I'm done and satisfied with it I'll send it to him via  YYCHR sheet :)





....and no, this is not getting in the way of my other projects that I belong to so please don't bring those up here out of respect for this thread :)

I also was eager trying to design a new area.
Hot sands!
Well, it's a very early and incomplete mockup, trying to find out the strengths of this design choice. It's also  unpolished and i am open for criticism of all kind.

Something about the color scheme of your tilesets reminds me of Batman: The Animated Series. I think it's the dark backgrounds.

The Metroid Engine is set this way, that you ONLY have a foreground layer, means 'air'/passable tiles are always in front of the sprites. That's one real knockback one has to deal with when hacking this game.

This means having black, much black, i try to compensate it with many detail tiles. It's a real task for the landscape not seeming bland and boring, but lively, vivid and exciting.

I liked Batman the animated series as a kid, so i take it as a compliment ;)

A frame reserved for this Screen, edited screen assembler code, Palettes adjusted, Pixels placed one by one. Plus you see the front view of the awesome Space Suit Sinis did for me.

Guess this will be the start of the adventure. Looks familiar? Well, it's NES Metroid! :)

Woof, this is an astounding piece of work! Well but it's not a real Super Metroid theme i have in mind (although it's obvious where i took inspiration from for the spaceship) , as it's not Zebes where the party is going. Currently i don't plan to work out an ambitious cut scene thing, which would nevertheless be nice!

Well that was one synergy effect for sure. I composed the cave theme for my hack first. I presented the track to one of my bands, they wanted to make a song of it. We arranged and played the song in the rehearsal, composed more parts for the song. And from those new parts in turn i composed one more cave theme, the boss part!

I could honestly need assembly help. I could apply one asm patch (for hurting and healing tiles), but with my current knowledge I'm unable to apply more patches.
Which would be a lot!

I would love a helping hand here.

Only very few tiles left for the space ship part, so i experimented with an efficient landscape. It's of course a bit reduced due to the shrinking amount of usable tiles. What do you think? Any suggestions?  I'm not yet happy with it.

Post by: dACE on October 04, 2018, 02:41:00 pm
You know - if the ship had been a sprite instead, you could have cut the used tiles in half.

The ship is pretty much symetrical and tiles used in sprites can be mirrored or flipped when drawn to the screen.

Just a thought.

Would require serious asm coding, and further expansion (cause the sprite pages are also limited and already nearly used up), but it would be nice and allow for lotsa more varied landscape. Would you know how to accomplish such a thing?

Well - you have to make up your mind of what’s more important: a impressive ship OR a varied background/enemy-fauna.

You are working with limitations when it comes to hacking old games - the challenge is to find a good balance between what you want to do and what you actually can do.

Si Senior. But on the other hand - that's what makes hacking old games so much fun. getting the best out of the strict limitations.
For my landscape i just tend to the solution of just making the the ship scenery minimal, to compensate for the lack of detail.
I don't want to "destroy" the ship in any way.
The rest of the level bank (Brinstar) is an alienated, rather detailed scenery, for which i have to construct a good transition from the ship area.

Dear cartridge_rom,

As of right now i am unable to include more foreign code into the game other than the graphic change procedure and healing /Hurting tiles (yes there will be healing stations).
First of i had to expand the rom to fit more stuff in. I don't know how to do that.
Maybe there will be solutions in the future, but right now it seems the hack will feature:

- new graphics
- new level design
- new background music
- bomb jump
- healing and hurting tiles


I would absolutely love (and i know it should be possible) :

- wall jump
- map (mini and corner map)
- save feature
- faster door transition
- better enemy AI
- air morph


What i do not know if it's possible in any way, but would be on the wish list indeed:

- more beams
- beam selection / start menu
- space jump
- speed booster


What does get me to the question : Are there any asm hackers out there willing to help me?

Glad that the sprite turned out nicely.  Wasn't sure on what palette you were going to use :)

By the way, it will be in a few weeks where I can start working on enemy sprites for you if ya still want me to.  Was waiting around for details last time but got nothing back so wasn't sure on what was up lol :)

Sorry,

I was kind of idling back and forth, and lost traction and motivation in times. Not meant to irritate you. Now I'm definitely back in the game. And yeah i would love you to accompany in designing sprites, first of in the underwater area. For example one thrilling octopus. ;] I already sent you a discord request by the way, we could communicate this way also. Just tell me when you are ready and set up =) Cheers

Glad to see this chugging along. I can't wait to see the finished project.
If I had a suggestion, i'd maybe include a crouch. Crouch would have been difficult with the old sprites being so chunky but I feel with Silis' sprites, crouching could be added so you can fire low and high and double tap down to enter morphing ball similar to Super Metroid.
Just an idea, in the end the direction is up to you and it's looking great!

Glad to see this chugging along. I can't wait to see the finished project.
If I had a suggestion, i'd maybe include a crouch. Crouch would have been difficult with the old sprites being so chunky but I feel with Silis' sprites, crouching could be added so you can fire low and high and double tap down to enter morphing ball similar to Super Metroid.
Just an idea, in the end the direction is up to you and it's looking great!
Glad you like it. This would be a great addition, as well as downward shooting.
Dunno if i will ever have required asm skills to do so, but my basic understanding gets better. Maybe, one day :) But i would rather finish the game without those features than to halt. At the moment i wait for snarfblam and his new Metroid Editor, which will be a blast!

This is awesome work indeed. I'm excited to see the finished product as well.

I agree that the crouch and the downward & diagonal shooting can be done after you finish your initial work.

I recently added another demo of Marine Madness. It's a current snapshot of the Underwater Area.
It's in my Space Complex discord channel (https://discord.gg/fQYFb6s).

This is the new title song!
I will do a YouTube video when the title screen is also finished, so long, a music file. Enjoy

Hot damn!
I have to admit that early on I wasn't much impressed with the graphics, but this is just beautiful.
