I think for the additional titles, maybe something more like "Luigi in DONKEY KONG" instead of "DONKEY KONG featuring Luigi".
If you do opt for the latter, perhaps an ft. for featuring could help.
I would also suggest doing Donkey Kong Jr. next, if only for the fact that changes would be very minimal for a final project.
If you're in for suggestions, I would say check the list of games featuring Mario for the NES:Spoiler:Donkey Kong Jr. 1985
Mario Bros. 1983
F-1 Race 1984
Super Mario Bros. 1985
Wrecking Crew 1985
Super Mario Bros. 2 1988
Super Mario Bros. 3 1988
Dr. Mario 1990
NES Open Tournament Golf 1991
Yoshi's Cookie 1992
Mario is Missing! 1993
Mario's Time Machine 1994
I'd start by developing a small Luigi sprite first (since it could be used for the largest number of games) and working my way from simplest to more complex. Clippit's Luigi Bros looks good, but I don't know if he edited the sprite at all or just did palette swaps. If you're so inclined, putting a tie on Donkey Kong and possibly even replacing DK jr with Diddy Kong could help to modernize it as well.
かえってきたルイージブラザーズ wasn't rereleased because it was merely a commercial for Super Mario Bros. Furikake
I'm up to the challenge. I know basic ASM and I've done a few things here and there.
I think a whole series of Luigi hacks would be great. I don't think they've done anything for Mario 1/2j/2u.
SMB2u would probably be a lot of fun to make. Roster could be Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, and Nabit. Bonus version could swap the two Toads for Original Toad and Toadette. With some ASM work Nabit could even have his attributes from New Super Luigi U.
For the Super Luigi Bros. 3 hack I'd do an addendum patch that changes the title to Super Luigi 3 and insert new question block graphics.
Oh!! And you know what would be great? Super Luigi Land! It always bugged me that it was Mario that saves Daisy in that game.
While not Super Mario Bros., I thought it's brilliant what someone has done for Mario Bros. here, using original and modern Luigi. It's a recent hack.
They could've at LEAST changed the old luigi to mario, i mean, come on...
Redoing the whole thing from scratch wouldn't take so much effort to warrant working off his hack anyway. All the sprites from Warioware are freely available online. Most of the ones for Dr.Wario are already in the right state for insertion into the game and the rest would just require editing the colors a bit with minimal need for altering the graphics. The old patch has enough problems IMO to warrant making a new version. Honestly, I should get off my butt and do it myself. Really, the only thing I would need to research is bypassing the anti-piracy thing and I'm sure that's well documented.
EDIT: Say, wouldn't doing that also free up a palette so you can have the Nintendo logo in the right color AND have the Luigi sprite you originally wanted?
Well Like you said, you're taking a liberty with the Luigi Hat version, so in this case it's already breaking the "what-if" premise a bit so you might as well add the gloves too if not the new animations. That way at least you avoid any palette issues.
I don't have much to say on palette choices, but I gotta give you props for allowing multiple patches for everyone's own preference. That's a great move you decided to make
How the hell did I miss that?
I tried it out and I can't get it to run on FCEUX or NEStopia. So it might merit another look.
Oh. I see, it's because it was made on a trained rom instead of a clean one. I get the feeling that might be the root of the issue.
What about changing his animations?
In the new game instead of tossing the pills overhanded, he kinds tosses them underhanded. That could work to your advantage.
You'd also need to change the location of the pills, but that shouldn't be too difficult.
I just noticed, that in the new game, besides wearing his hat, Luigi is also wearing his gloves. So you may not even need to worry about palette wierdness if you do the same in your edit.
One last thing. About the placement of the copyright. Would it be appropriate enough to drop the original copyright year and just keep the 2013? That way you don't have to lower the thing. I was debating even bringing this up, but whatever. I just think that the closer you can keep to the original title screen the better. Plus, the technical accuracy of the copyright year on a ROM hack is a bit moot.
To me reads like "The year 30 of luigi"
That's a perfectly fine idea. The differences are relatively minor, and anyone can always go in and alter their personal patches if they so choose.
Plus if anyone REALLY wants another variation, making palette changes is simple enough that they can do it themselves.
I'll probably fiddle with it myself. (I still dig the lighter blue background)
About the 30th block logo. How about placing that into the main game screen somewhere subtle? Like making it the dark blue color and putting it at the mouth of the bottle?
From WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!
The problem with the right one is white. It might work better with a darker color replacing it. This would require the Luigi sprite being removed or maybe making look like a gold Luigi.
Regardless of this, I think the year of Luigi text makes the screen far too cluttered the way it is.
I would also point out that none of the year of Luigi products explicitly say year of Luigi in game anywhere. Plus Dr. Luigi itself is already associated with it without the text telling you so.
Make a decision, the year of Luigi is almost over.
Just the opposite for me, I find the orange and white very jarring. Those palette constrains can be pain in the butt.
The size of the "Year of Luigi" text box is also making the middle of the screen look like it has vertical lines so I'd either make it smaller or scrap it all together.
Everything else looks great.
I think the orange and white look great, man, as well as those animations.
I will just point out that in the screen shots they showed of the new game they actually didn't change the tiny viruses to match the new designs. They still look like the old ones. Hopefully this is just an oversight and will be corrected before release, otherwise your patch will actually be superior to the new game in that respect.
I was thinking that another patch that might might be a worthy project in the future is to add in the mode from the new game where Luigi tosses only pairs of 'L' shaped pill packets instead of single pills. That mode looks like it could be tons of fun. Of course it'll probably take some considerable ASM voodoo to accomplish.
Can't wait 'till this is released. So, can I help make updates 'n' stuff ? I like developing ROM hacks (See my prev. post on this thing about me asking to help)
IS THIS A DE-MAKE OF NINTENDO'S WIP DR.LUIGI GAME I HEAR?! WOOOO!
FINALLY SOMEONE MAKES THIS! I was thinking of this myself, but I'm only good at RPGs... Pokemon in particular
Want my help at all? I am the Boss of the Chippy Cooperation, after all (Recently founded a ROM Hacking Business sorta thing) and I have nothing to develop right now. Send me a download link to the Dev Tools with the ROM (Dropbox in a ZIP file preferably) and I'll be off!
