MooJelly was an ambitious project but the author did not test it enough, you're right about that. We really need an entirely new editor... I asked CoolToby to release the source code of MarCas way back then but he refused and said he was ashamed of his mess of a code.
CoolToby/Coolboyman might be the only one who still has the newest version but I have no idea how to contact him...

That's a shame...

...because if he did release the source code some people could have fixed those bugs (adding a "data shifter" if a level becomes bigger than expected (like in Lunar Magic)).

But if a SML3 Editor comes up at some point, I'm going to ditch... nah just kidding.

Anyway, I'd still have to rewrite the ROM and mappings (corrupted ROM that can't be worked on).

The former requires me copying the entire GFX onto another ROM.
The other requires me re-doing all the mappings by hand.

Maybe I should give a better look to my files though, as I may still have a pre-Moojelly edit ROM (I may have to look at the backups).

Ohh, that Coolman and that editor! Was originally supposed to be a community project IIRC, but a bit later it was just two people (him and myself actually, tho all I ever did was GUI stuff, if even that...?), and yet later just him... damn, it's been so long since the FWB... I haven't spoken to him since then - 2005-ish? - so I have no idea how to contact him nowadays either, tho.

Oh? I always got mixed up with the names. Cooltoby, Coolman, Coolboyman, Koolman, ugh..!
I do remember he was a very nice person, though. The private release was the best SML2 editor I've used, and it was the very tool I used to create the hack I linked you to. I used a Hex editor and Treeki's OW editor to make this. In all honesty, I think that in order to make a full SML2 hack, one would only need Treeki's OW editor, a Hex editor, a tile editor and 'that' MarCas.
If someone can get a hold of him, please ask if he still has the editor. I want to wake my hack up too

UPDATE:

Non-corrupt backup of the ROM found!

For the sake of preservation: Link

It's slightly buggy, I haven't worked out with problems with object mappings and positions (hit a block while small to see it).

Double post for reasons:

1 - I've looked back, and I was wrong. That rom was currupted too. I've replaced it with the actual non-corrupted ROM (aptly named Original.gb). It was much more unfinished, so I've just made it moreon par with the corrupted ROM (except the corruption, of course).
The object layout hasn't been edited in this ROM, so look out for hidden Piranha Plants.

2 - Does 'that' MarCas have a warp editor or map repoint features? To cope up with the limit of how much a level can be big, I had to do THIS unholy thing on the underground part of the level:

iirc 'that' MarCas did have a warp editor but not map repoint. You could repoint them by hand, though. Also, no editor to date supports overworld paths and sprites but it is very possible by careful planning and a hex editor; I have personal notes and a demonstration (which i really should release )

AH, ok. I could shrink the map size then. Still, the problem is finding it.

Incidentally, I've also been working on a SML2 hack on and off. The main character is Vivian for no particular reason (most sprites are complete, including grown form). One and a half levels are done so far, plus a bit of the overworld map.






Does anyone have documentation on the music format? I'd be happy to make a simple conversion program, it would certainly give me more motivation to finish this project.

That looks stunning!!
Do you need help editing the overworld paths or do you know something I don't?

Regarding your music issue; I used to have a small document describing the music formats of Super Mario Land 1 and 2. It's long gone now though :C
My method was GBS corruption. Wish I still had it.

Thanks, I already have the document on overworld paths, it says that the array starts at 0x6163A. I seem to recall reading a forum post about SML1/2 music format a while back, but I have no clue where that was.

A thing it would be helpful to know was where to search in the ROM which tileset does a level use - it's not in the header apparently.

Although for now every level GFX bank contains a copy of level 0 GFX bank, it's only s temporary solution which won't work for some later levels (where I'm not lucky and their tileset ID doesn't work for their level) that need a different tileset from the vanilla SML2 one.

Hey man, you made the exhal toolset and now you're sleeping with it. It is your duty to create a level editor for every Kirby game.
Just kidding; that looks very interesting! Hope it evolves into something great!

Bleh, I'm releasing this stupid SMB hack created as "response" to this.

Patch here.

Use "Super Mario Bros. (JU) (PRG0) [!].nes"

It was a simple experiment on trying to do as much fake transparency as possible (therefore making the graphics horrible), that is. It was cancelled before I could edit a single world. :/ Also, for "full enjoyment", use this settings (in this case for Nestopia).

In the meantime of finishing up the first World of that SML2 hack, here's a quite old hack I've made which was supposed to be a serious one, but then (after realizing the SML2 level limit) it just became a broken hack which poked fun at those who make stupid hard levels. And also a bit to other games...

The file is aptly named "bullshit.gb".
