Been lurking enough for awhile getting what I can from the boards with learning how to do ROM hacks but have reached a point where I am not sure exactly how to approach this next issue.
I have already learned and taken care of sprite editing, level creation, text adjustments, palette swapping for the NES and are currently working with Super Mario Brothers as a starting point. I however would like any help, either actual tutorials or guidance on where to look, with doing the following:
I am wanting to change the big/small mario states in the game. I wish for mario's default state to be BIG mario (using the big mario sprites) and when he gets a mushroom he then becomes the small sprite mario. If he gets hit then he will obviously revert back to big mario. This isn't a simple sprite swap as each state uses a different number of sprite tiles.
I'm boggled, I am not sure how to go about this. Can anyone help point me on the right way or guide me through the process of doing do? Much appreciated for any info I can get! If this is something already on the boards i'm sorry I didn't find it in my searches (yet?)
