Hey guys does this new goalpost look dumb or is it ok



Palette of the goal sphere changed to red, GFX changed to give it a glass ball look, and it's filled with weird red stuff!

x

When you touch it, you can see the layer 1 tile under it, which is yellow. It's not special at all, it's merely a replacement for the normal goal tape, because I've thrown out bonus stars.

Yes, this is a copy/paste of a post on SMWC.

That looks like it'd fit more as a midway point than a goal

(Mostly because of the resemblence to another game's checkpoints)

Perhaps I should make it taller?

And I didn't even realize that looked so much like sonic 1-3 checkpoints until you said that. Damn. Maybe WIDER...

I do think making it taller would help- the shortness makes it feel less important or something...

With a few map16 adjustments, it's now taller. I can also customize the height easily now, including both the gold part and the... stick part. It also looks less like a sonic1 checkpoint.

I figure since it's glowy and shiny, people won't mistake it for a midpoint anyway.

Especially considering the midpoint looks like this in this world -> x

That looks a lot more end-of-level like... Especially when you compare it with the midpoint.

I'm not going to say what this is about excactly. It started out as something I did just for my own amusement, like pretty much everything I have ever done in regards to hacking..

Anyway, I know I probably suck at making graphics, but I'm asking for your opinion anyway. What do you think?





Do you have any hints on how to improve these graphics if they aren't good enough? Or anything you feel is lacking?

Oh, and I am aware that Mario's palette isn't quite right. This is because he shares it with a certain other sprite. Bleh.

Never heard of Tweaker. But I'll look into that.

Most of it doesn't look that bad, but the bookshelf definitely needs some sprucing up... I think the problem is that the borders of the bookshelf are too similar to the inside empty parts of the shelves.

That whole concept there reminds me strangely of a Castlevania-styled library. I kind of like it, though the yellow pixels on the books look kind of ugly. in my opinion

Nice!

Imajin: Yeah, you're right about the bookshelf. I kind of always felt something there wasn't right. I'll see what I can do about that.

S.N.N.: Yeah, now that you point it out.. it kinda does. I'll see what I can do about it, or maybe I'll just remove it alltogether.

But I won't do anything tonight, it's getting late.

Thanks for the feedback, it's much appreciated.

It looks more like a city than a bookshelf, what with the bright yellow dots.

The item box and 2D object locations are actually hardcoded.

Mario Kart 64 hacking would be awesome. I assume you're working on a program to do just that?

Oh, and I fixed up the bookshelf some, hopefully this looks better.



And here's something else. No major changes in the graphics here, though.

That looks far better, but the "Shhh!" is escaping the sign. The second one is amusing. Really need to fix Mario's palette though. (Or work being sprayed in the face with paint into the plot? )

No rip this time.
I'm giving a go to try make my own gfx. Hope they do not look that bad.
