That issue pops up a lot on computers that use that notation, since SMBX prefers the American system (1,234.56). Basically, you should swap the decimal and thousands separators in your Regional settings so that the latter notation is used, otherwise SMBX will panic and hide in the corner like someone who just saw Slenderman brush his nonexistent teeth.

EDIT: Or you can go to the offending level's folder, open up all the "npc-xx.txt" and/or "lunadll.txt" files and replace every decimal point with a comma, but that's more tedious since I imagine a lot of levels use periods to separate decimals in their text files. Hope that helps!
Thanks! I did not check that one, and I'm on a European system xD

*And it works! Just had to change decimals from , to . like you said.

Okay, I've heard that it sometimes starts in the middle of the track. Any way to plop an midi in and just KNOW it works without listening akin to a mp3? And this is due to filesize concerns.

I have no idea what you're doing but maybe you skipped numbers? There are hexadecimal numbers between 8 and 0

Code: Select all

MemAssign,0x00B2C788,124,0,0,0,w
MemAssign,0x00B2C790,124,0,0,0,w
You went from 788 to 790, totally skipping 78A, 78C, 78E

One of the top numbers makes Link's height 124, and one of the bottom ones makes the length 124. My problem is... Well look at the image! Link has no bottom even though I made custom player graphics

It's probably not designed to use graphics of those dimensions

I've come up with an interesting way to use the warp potion in a level, but have noticed something really weird.

I've got a conveyor belt (I believe it's npc-57) going right. The player is allowed to use the warp potion to warp to a nearly identical section that is

upside-down

, in order to reach certain switches. However, when the player returns to the original screen, the conveyor belt is suddenly going left.

I don't understand why it's happening and if I can't figure out why it's doing that, I may have to ditch the conveyor belt from the level. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, since the character sprite-box is 100x100 I rekkin you could have a character that's that big without any trouble, so, it's just a matter of redrawing the sprite 12 pixels or so shorter and 2 pixels thiner.

That wouldn't be very impressive I'm afraid
The idea was sort of to play as a boss without any sprite modifications

I remember that you can resize some of the player graphics by extending them downwards and to the right. It might work only for some of them though. I had some fun making extra large player graphics earlier when resizing player hitbox was not a thing yet.

Switches reverse conveyor belts, or, at least some switches do. I am also totally not going to make a puzzle based on this very obscure fact, nope, not at all.

Oh darn it. That's the one I'm using to trigger the warp potions. I can't believe I didn't notice that was happening. Oh well... guess the best thing to do here is to replace the switch block, then.

Thanks, guys.

I guess SMBX is always SHOWING the 100x100 grid on the character sheet, it's just invisible for almost all pixels? It doesn't actually take physical character size into consideration when reading it? The best thing I can think of is a sort of "GFX height" modifier like the NPCs.

Also to whom it may concern: I think the best way to modify star count is to write to the save file "player has star from section x in dummy.lvl" and so on, since that's how the stars work in the save. That's also why the one star per section limit exists.

Also: is it possible to flip the "player has viewed credits" flag in a save file and provide said file? I don't want the credits in my episode, and I'd be fine with just providing 1 percent clear files if it meant the player could get a 100 clear save file.

Is it possible to give an NPC layer priority to the playable character?

nope, character size is a fixed value that im sure could be changed with upcoming lunadll installments. kinda saddening

It's possible to change the height (see my SMW Mario and Luigi)

Hello. Could you guys please tell me what program you used to change the menu text in the main game for A2MBXT? I tried HexEdit, but I could only find the level editor text. I'm in real need of this information, and I promise it's not just for random tinkering or trivia.

With a hex editor, you navigate to the position it says in the file usually using a "goto" function of sorts.

Is there a way to make a background auto-scroll without the level auto-scrolling... and without having to make a very lengthy image for it to be animated?

I haven't checked out luna.dll yet, would any of it's scripts be able to do what I want?
