### Sibling Halls (No more openings!)

Might as well put all this discussion in its own thread now that it is going way beyond merely graphics.

Basically, it has been decided that the way the sibblings/end levels will be handled will be a little different. Because our boss-making ressources are limited, the thought, championned pretty heavily by Cup, of making small punchy levels featuring the sibblings could be used. NOTE - there can still be one or two 'real' bosses, I believe, as that would make them all the more surprising.

Also note for anyone participating in this - we need four 'endgame' difficulty, but also four 'midgame' difficulty, so keep that in mind, and let's all try to keep this balanced!

Anyone can obviously participate assuming you don't have another thing pending! (and even that is negociable)

The one thing in common - the idea is to use the portrait of the sibbling as the background, as drawn here. Bellow is what is available, and I'll write down if anyone has claimed interested in designing one. Also, yes, if you want to make a full-on boss it's still great, but not 'both' - either a level or a boss.

When these are completed, we'll go to the end-level levels and basically replace the endgoal with a second midpoint, and add in these sections.

### Re: Sibbling Halls

There was talk over on smwc the other day about 'bridging' production2 and this game and I still think it'd be a nice easter egg to use Calleoca's 'imitating other games' ability to make her bit from production2 graphics but that's just an idea. I might make one when I have the time, though I might want to keep working on the racoon tail first, or something.

After sending a PM to raocow asking if he could go into detail about the siblings, I google searched and found this. It DOES have spoilers, however.
BTW, the URL literally says "Don't Read, raocow".

Oh man, that was the old wiki from when flameofdoubt was around.

I thought we had all that information on the current wiki's story page, though.

### Re: Sibling Halls (got some openings left)

A couple of people have asked me about using edit1754's online bg ripper, so I thought I'd go ahead and post how I normally approach it in the thread.

It's going to look really jumbled in yychr, don't worry about that. The tool knows where to put everything.

So the order of operations go:
• 1 Edit the PNG so its y and x pixel totals are both multiples of 16
2 Upload PNG to edit's bg ripper
3 *I normally leave the other options blank and just rename the files later
4 Choose your palette, map8, and map16 as the tool directs
5 Unzip the files and open the level.mwl in lunar magic (level 25 unless you've changed it)
6 Load the map16.bin the ripper gives you to the correct map16 page
8 Put those ExGFX into the map8 you chose with the Super GFX Bypass Dialog
9 Your background should now look correct, edit as you see fit with the background editor.
10 Save the level to the level you reserved with ctrl+i > your level number
You can cut out a few steps using some of the options in the tool, but I find I keep it better organized when I rename things later. The whole process takes about 2 minutes since raocow has already done the amazingly creative part and has drawn such pretty pictures in a way that smw can tolerate.

I think I'll claim Calleoca since shapeshifting sounds like an idea I can pull off without ASM.

### Re: Sibling Halls (got some openings left)

I have an idea I want to try so I'm claiming Pandemona for now. I may release if it doesn't work out but we should know soon enough. Thank you!

### Re: Sibling Halls (got two openings for Pily and Iris left)

I wish I had my computer :c

Everything keeps provoking me to try Pily and Mishi again. (More so Pily).

(I asked Cup what he'd do if I came out of nowhere and did that, he was fine with it more or less we'd find a use for everything.)

Anyway if you need information about the siblings, I did sum up most of the information about them at http://asmtinfo.co.cc/page/story.

I also more or less made up Calleoca ;o

I think it was Moniker or Kilon and I who made up the rest of their personalities.

### Re: Sibling Halls (got two openings for Pily and Iris left)

First of all, thank you alex for helping me out earlier today, and thank you Cup for helping me insert the Mona background. It was a great help!

But most importantly, thank you to Kil. Basically, at the start of the a2mt project kil had this nifty little level with a great gimmick. During the whole process and history of this hack I've been trying to get peeps to 'dredge' it into a full on level, but for some reason it never really got any support...

So I figured, welp, now's the time!

Note - press the X button to go through stuff.
The.. the boss prefight should probably mention this in some way!!

http://www.mediafire.com/?m18jnpxeaonsrtj

Reasoning behind this - Pandemona is all about hiding itself in its little box, so I figured the whole level should have this 'hiding' aspect to it that fit well with the asm gimmick. However, I also almost immediatly had this thought train -> box, so boxy, so boxy graphics, so old 2600-era graphics. Since what was bringing down the original level was how the graphics where kind of eh with grey blocks and bones just kinda used...

one day I'll remember how palette animation actually work and place it on other elements, unless you peeps tell me its enough as is.

The base level design is by Kil, I just tweaked and balanced bits here and there.

Oh yeah! Although I don't know if I'm overstepping any boundaries here, but I think it'd be cool if 'the theme that all the sibbling halls share' could have a low-fi, 'four bit' remix for this room. I think it'd be neat at least.

Anyway, yes, please feed my back.

That change I made when helping set up the background might have a very large chance of unsuspectingly killing the player! The change from kil's one tile thick cage to the wall that hides the background. I was playing with how kil's asm worked with the inversion. That might need to change though since I think the first reaction the player would have after pressing X would be to release it when demo starts falling, which would crush them in the wall. Making a few act like dirt blocks would do it, but they might have to be distinguishable from the rest because the rest will actually kill you, something that's important to learn!

You could also put it back to something like what kil originally had.

Love the changing palette!

Aside from what Cup said, I'm loving this whole thing. I knew right away when I looked at the ASM code from the other thread that this effect is going to be pretty amazing.

My only gripes are: the part of the level where you jump between munchers a bit, and the part where it's seemingly random placement of blocks with pockets that you have to jump through. Seems too tedious, I suppose.

Hello, Talkhaus!

Regrettably, I must give back the Nevada sibling fight. I'm starting school very soon and life is just getting in the way too much for me to be able to finish this fight the way I wanted to. I'm giving all of the resources including exgfx files, levels, map16 spaces, etc to anyone who wants to claim it (with the admins' permission of course).

• -On level C1, there should be flashing thunder (with sound effect) in the background along with the changing of the bg palette from blue to black.
-Change the level design including how many sprites and what foreground in the beginning of level C1. It's lacking for a sibling fight.
-Add music to both levels C1 and F1. I believe someone composed music specifically for the sibling fight.
-Add more of a variety of sprites to level C1 and F1. For example, I wanted to change the bullet bills to fireballs originally because Nevada attacks with fire. Get creative and think of some other stuff!
-Finish level F1. You'll know what I mean when you test it. It's simply unfinished because I don't have the time to do so. And feel free to mess with the layer 2 settings. I originally wanted the giant piranha plant to move up and down but I have autoscroll on, so I can't have two generators at once :/
-In level F1, make Nevada an invincible magikoopa whose graphics are 32x48 (in order to fit raocow's original drawing of her) but make her still have the same hit box as an original magikoopa. Also, you could make her send out something other than fireballs, maybe plant related stuff.
-Do whatever the hell you want. It's your sibling fight now. If you want, you could simply scratch the entire level and do something else. I would be hurt a little, but I'm sure you can think of something better
If you do choose to take over this sibling fight, remember that the above list are just guidelines. You may do whatever you please to level itself. All of the resources are attached below.

Here are some screen shots to get everyone excited:
tl;dr: I'm handing over the Nevada sibling fight. I bit off more than I could chew - life is happening. Please follow the list above as my dying talkhaus related wish for the sibling fight... or don't.

-----------------------FILES-----------------------
-----------------------------------------------------

I'm truly sorry I couldn't finish this brilliant fight. It was just too much for me.

Best of luck to you all in the future. I look forward to playing the finished rom hack when I'm away at college!

Cheers,

-Schnurmanator

### Re: Sibling Halls (got two openings for Pily and Iris left)

SyStemkraSh had a fantastic idea for Pily: she should be a graphic swap of Boss Bass. She'd swim in lava because she likes that or something.

Someone should do this it's perfect.

### Re: Sibling Halls (got two openings for Pily and Iris left)

Uhm... Hi !

I'm really sorry about the lack of updates for my Sibling hall (Garish). This August month has been PRETTY hectic work-wise (and also I had just a tiny bit of a lack of motivation but shhh) but september should be a lot less busy for me, so I'll try and be more active here.

Now most of the level ideas themselves are already down on paper, but I have mainly one issue that is beyond my abilities and that has been kind of a "stream-killer" for me each time I tried to do some progress. It's explained in this post I made the other day, and that nobody had been able to solve. Which I completely understand, considering the number of people that know about ASM in the talkhaus if pretty small (and I know Alex has some computer issues atm, and is already busy with the danmaku boss).

I've done quite a lot of research on how to make the shells shot by the sprite move as if they were kicked but to no avail. I was fairly hesitant on asking at smwcentral for help for A2MT, but if worse comes to worse...

The other "major" thing I planned to do was some graphics swaps for some enemies to make them more Garish/goopa related but I don't think it'll be that difficult, so I'm not too worried.

So yeah, just a heads up/new call for help. Again, a hundred thanks in advance to someone who can help me with that sprite !

You should pm Diortem about your asm problem. He could probably help.

### Re: Sibling Halls (got two openings for Pily and Iris left)

I recently had a special idea for a level and since there's no level slot left, limepie20 suggested that I ask here.

Here's what I had time to come up with this week:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4676540/smw/Col ... erflow.ips

It's the level you start on and then in the pipe at the beginning.

I doubt this could work, what's with all the colours, but what if Demo had to drop in a dark room (with the boss' background) after a second similar trippy room? Can those even be multiple levels long? Alternatively, could this fit somewhere else in the hack once finished?
