Lurked on and off for well over a decade and I can't even remember why I finally registered, but I guess it's time to post and ask a question that I can't seem to find online.
Been messing with and editing SMB1, but the one thing that I can't seem to figure out how to do is to add or edit the backgrounds. Found ways and editors to add new enemies and items, but not for backgrounds.
Here are a few fake images of what I'm trying to accomplish:
One thing that always bothered me, even as a child, was the fact that you always started in the middle of nowhere. I simply would like to add a castle at the beginning of the game. I'm not seeing a way to do this though. Thought this should be simple enough.
Finally, and once again castle related, is I would like to change the look of the castle itself. I know how to edit the sprites themselves, but I don't need the sprites edited. I simply would like to edit the tiles in this kind of formation to make it look more like a castle and less like 6 doors have been pasted onto the wall. Or at the very least remove the bottom halves of the middle 2 windows to make them not as similar as the doors.
How exactly do I go about doing this?
