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.

Making a level with the dev kit.. why is the toad NPC a powerup? I want a toad NPC to talk too but Demo picks him up like he's a super mushroom. XD

There should be a flag that should make NPCs friendly. However, it's off by default. As to why he's a powerup...

Oh the friendly tag... right, it's been a while, I guess I forgot about that. It works now, thanks.

On another note, hitboxs for blocks can't be changed right?

Kinda.
1. Place a block of the size you want where you want the resized block to be (a pipe for a 2x1 block for example)
2. Use the debugger to block swap that block to your resized block

You can change the block size in the lvl-file to anything you want, if you know it's coordinates.

Then you can use copy paste tool tool of some kind to move it around, so you don't need to resize every single block you want to enlarge/shrink.

Is there any way to make rotodisc give out light i.e. turn darker tiles into lighter ones without attaching the lighter tiles layer to the rotodisc? I tried doing that, but it looked really ugly.

Add the clow to the sprite and then use npc codes to offset and resize the hitbox to be in the center of the rotodisc again.

Anything involving light in SMBX is destined to look ugly I'm afraid.

I was able to duck and pick up enemies from the top a few days ago, but not anymore. I don't think I added any lunaglobal codes.

All command lengths in a custom section need to have an active time of something other than than 0. I'm surprised that doesn't cause horrible lag actually.

I'm really stumped with a level I'm working on, which is a backstory to Kood's hovering abilities (after all, he wall jumps in the original games).

This is what I've got so far.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vl39xrd4zdc87 ... y.zip?dl=0

I'm torn between a rooftop chase or escape through a ventilation system. However, would somebody mind giving me some feedback on the first part? I need to know two things:

1. Is it too long?
2. Is it too similar to MAKL Vanilla?

Is the starting location supposed to be at the rooftop?
e: So, I've just moved my starting location to a (hopefully) more appropriate place in the section 1, beat it along with section 2 and so far I like it. Three nitpicks though:
1)Could you move the midpoint near the door? Dying and starting over doing the switches again may get annoying, depending on rooftop's length and difficulty.
2) Any level with Kood is bound to have one very annoying flaw: you misjudge your height, float into a wall and then fall and die. The best cure for that is usually to have 5 block gaps.
3)The bit were you float with a companion cube and hit the orange switch is kinda obnoxious.

Those are reset switches to make sure the player starts off with all the colour blocks set correctly in the second half. I don't want to take the chance of the player starting off the second half with the wrong blocks activated.

Okay.

It's just a more dangerous version of the same gimmick from MAKL Vanilla.

Was the first section too long to warrant a second half, though?

So far, it feels kinda short. If the second half has about the same length as the first, then it'll have the perfect length.

Wondering if anyone out there can help, I've remember a pretty neat background that was used in either ASMBXT or MAGLX... pretty sure it was one of those, basically it was a load of cogs like part of a giant machine, but I can't for the life of me remember what level used it.

There was a background like that used in Luna Tower (and my A2XT level The Descent of Nine). Is that the one?

I'm not certain, I think there were way bigger cogs, unless I'm remembering wrong.

Wasn't there something like that in Mario is Missing But More Intense?

Yes! That's what I was thinking of.. thanks Leet, I'll have to go grab Magl X. Also where might I get that CFGX graphics pack? My one is probably outdated by now.
