Okay, that sounds crazy. I don't know exactly how high your gameplay quality standards are (I think I always worry too much when testing, it`s a curse sometimes) and how many assets you have to prepare for your project, but regardless, that's an insane amount. That probably explains why you hardly had any time. Absolutely understandable.
Are you the creator of this alone (which I assume right now), at least in terms of level design I mean.

I seem to remember that a few more users (or teams) here also wanted to develop such a successor, but you seem to be closest to the goal with the completion.
- lua code written to be easily understandable or copyable
Looks like as if this is still understandable enough for people like me. Nice. I am looking forward to it.

BTW: Levels on screenshots look like solid overall IMHO.

We can probably assume that this episode will be included in the next beta (or final?) smbx release, right?
I mean the Demo stages are a little bit "outdated" and a demonstration of the features in a bigger scale would be welcome.

That doesn't have to stop him from doing it anyway ...

additionally, in case you don't understand.

You mean basegame episode? Oh...

That’s actually a good idea.

And the demo stages are tutorials on how to use the X2 characters.

I'm not really sure if this is another joke post or something but good luck with your project.

...and looking at the estimated release, hope that doesn't affect the vanilla contest judging progress lol

Wait, is this going to be inserted into the basegame (like Invasion 2)?

It wasn't worth (as posting just for that) going into it before, so I'm only doing it now:
This is true, but it still has outdated code examples.

Code: Select all

	
	local eventu = API.load("eventu")
	local inputs2 = API.load("inputs2")
both not needed anymore, as better alternatives are available and this stuff with audio as well.

Code: Select all

	
	Audio.MusicOpen("whatever.extension")
	Audio.MusicPlay()
First of all, "you" have to know that you shouldn't necessarily be guided by that. And these examples are all (just) from the map "Waddle-Capitalism".
Maybe the other levels also have "outdated" code.

Like he said, just a suggestion (of me) to include it into basegame (additionally of course, otherwise it might take 2 years + ).
It would make sense, as he mostly seems to use basegame tilesets and backgrounds and the easy to use and understand luna scripts.

A strange posting. This is so unlike you. Reads more like from somebody who just discovered SMBX for the first time and is super hyped.
It does remind me of a bug from a forum many years ago where a single (and one time) posting of me appeared which I did never write in the first place.

Sadly because of that restriction I was not able to release on the game's 2 year dev-iversary (June 13). So instead, to do a late celebration, here's another screenshot!

In the spirit of vanilla, the game doesn't have a lot of lua. But a completion menu was kind of necessary due to star coins.
