I did, did not work?!

Code: Select all

local twisterAI = require("npcs/ai/twister")
twisterAI.blacklist(224,227)
DL (pick one):

BTW: A question.
Any way you guys consider to include some kind of "camera panning stopper" into the editor?
In case you do not know what I mean. In Mario Maker 2 hard blocks do that kind of job. The camera stopps panning at some point, suggesting, the section does end there. However using hardblocks here would be semi-optimal. I rather think vertical and/or horizontal camera panning stopper lines would be neat. However each section could only have one of them and ONLY either a horizontal or vertical one which would go through the whole section.
That way 2 sections could be combined into one, they would share the same background settings, music and all the other settings of a section, however.

If there is interest but it is still not quite clear what I mean, I can create an illustration where I depict it as if it were also available in the editor.

apparently I have to copy it and change it in my project folder
nope, it doesn't say that. it's just a library, so it works like any other library. please never randomly copypaste basegame files into your folders, unless you are absolutely sure of what youre doing.
put this into your luna.lua

Code: Select all

local twisterAI = require("npcs/ai/twister")
twisterAI.blacklist(1) -- blacklists the goomba

feedback: when you select "quit" in the quit menu mid game, please remove the feature that exists the entire game and revert it like it was in beta 4 (quiting the episode, not the game itself). the beta 5 quitting is horrible for playtesting and costumes dont work on episodes because i cant quit and save the costume from for example mario challenge to select one.

my guess that this new quitting system was added is to prevent "cheating" on episodes, since when you just quit the episode your stats are back to normal even if you die. would be great if that is fixed, or just temporarily revert to the beta 4 quitting system in the next patch until the "cheating" prevention system is finished, if that was your goal of this beta 5 quitting system
The reason this was changed is that the old title screen is capable of corrupting save files. You can use the dressmeup cheat in an episode to equip a costume to get around your issue. It's a bit janky on the map but should work in any level. The method you describe is a bug that relies on the instability on the title screen, which also explains why you experience having to do this every time. Using the dressmeup method saves the costume state across sessions, so you only ever have to do it once per save file.
Making costumes available is generally at the discretion of the episode creator, so be careful that in the rare case it might cause issues, if for example the costume's mechanics or hitboxes differ from those officially supported by the episode.

In terms of playtesting, could you go into detail how it hampers playtesting? I do a lot of playtesting myself, and would be curious to hear about your struggles.
thank you for addressing this. now, speaking of playtesting, its nothing too bad. theres a reason of mine specifically why i think testing is a bit different than beta 4 and i think this is more of a "me" difficulty im having. since f5=test a level, adding a shortcut to start the whole game would be great or at least put it bellow regular testing (the f5 one) like it was in beta 4 so its more quicker, since i do a lot of world map testing that i dont wanna save yet etc.

keep in mind, its not the end of the world that this changed in terms of testing and costumes, because it may seem like it but its not, i just wanna clarify that. i was trying to suggest if testing can be more "quicker" to do if you get what im trying to say

update: i've managed to pinpoint the cause of the first bug, namely it's the warp's "exitSection" field being calculated incorrectly - meaning that unfortunately it's impossible to fix this on the user's side without making a custom checkpoint script (which i imagine most people would like to avoid)
update update: this isn't just an issue with checkpoints, any cross-section warps which lead outside a section's boundaries will kill the player instantly.

the above recording is from a level which uses no additional scripts, on the latest hotfix.

Interesting. To my knowledge this is something that always happened. What version does this reliably work on?

Try the "test a saved game" button in the editor when editing the world map, and let me know if that works for you. I believe it uses save index 0, so if you want to reset the save, you can delete the associated save files.

I mean, I did have them shot out a different hammer that had MDA's rotation code, but I'm not sure if that affected anything.

you'd actually be right, it turns out this was a matter of additional scripts after all, and i simply neglected to test it more thoroughly. my apologies, you're free to disregard my original post in the thread.

Something interesting I've found with the new compatibility update with Semi-solids and Slopes, I wanted to see if I can also add the Sizeable setting alongside them. It does work, albeit with caveats.

Spoiler: show
Image
please ignore the graphics used; it was only for testing purposes

It produces a weird visual bug where the center piece is reused, filling in the gaps of the sizeable block.
I'm assuming that the sizeable setting is not compatible with the slope setting, as it was intended for sizeable semi-solids.

Aside from looking strange, it functions like a semi-solid slope.


I'm using the first release of b5, with no patches if that helps.

First things first: I am very sure, if you report a bug that the development team kind of "expects" you to use the latest build.
After all, we all have to come down to the same denominator.
Unless it is about to show evidences that something suddently broke in a recent build and nobody knows.

Yeah, I do think as well Semi-Solid Sizeables are not possible.
I suggest you to do it like that.
Image
I "blocked" all background objects only showing the actual walkable blocks here (the bgos have the priority of -89, nearly the same as actual sizeables):
Image
I changed the semi-solid as like shown here, cutting of the edges
Image

And now something different:
Image
Honestly I actually expected the shell to get "killed" instead of being stuck. For spawning I used a Respawner, as I wanted to make sure, only ONE of these shells is active at the same time. But this unexpected behaviour kinda "kills" it.

Welp, that's SMBX for you. I do think that antizip fixes it, but I'm not sure if that's what you want.

Yeah, fair enough.
In hindsight, I should've updated with the new patch ASAP.

Yeah, it's probably for the best.
I have my doubts they'd create a new block-type just for sloped semi-solid sizeables.

Anyhow, thanks for the suggestion.

I guess technically it can count as a bug: Would it be possible to give the SMB2 cherry the sound normally used when the player collects it, who isn't the coin sound?

https://www.sounds-resource.com/game_bo ... ound/8830/

If I am not wrong, it should be “song189.wav” in this archive. I also think this sound was played for SMB2 floating hearts.

Did not work, but looks like antizip is for the player only anyway.

I also noticed. ALSO it should not act like a coin in the first place.

I also must say, and I mean no offense to anyone who worked on it, I am not understanding the new item “poison vegetable”. It is basically a guarantee of hurt, or worst when in a small state, it is a guarantee of death if the player throws it and only adds an undesirable layer of frustration and unfairness to the gameplay. I really don't think it adds any enjoyment or balance to the game. I am guessing, perhaps, you simply wanted something who is the opposite of the Heart Radish from SMBA, but I really just feel it's totally unfair and not an enjoyable challenge. The only positive thing I can say about it is the sprite is pretty.

What I will say about our rotten friend, the poison vegetable, is that it'll inconsistently harm the player when throwing/holding/standing on it. And to counter Mushroom King, you could use it as an unreliable helper in late-game areas that have a SMB2 vibe as a little decision the player has to make.
