-At the moment this for SMBX2, so please, use this for that version. It was designed for it specifically, and you may have issues if you use it in another version. 38A should work for the most part. However, certain objects, NPCs, etc. are made using SMBX2 only content! Later on, I may make a version for the 1.3, and 38A exclusive content, so stay tune for that!
-If you plan on using these graphics, give credit to me and anyone else credited in the readmes provided in the pack. If any credits are missing in any readme, please notify me ASAP.
Hello all! This here is my graphics pack for SMBX. All graphics are in the .png format. I will try and update this periodically, typically every month or two. In between major updates, there may be smaller updates to help patch and fix various mistakes and make small additions. At the moment, my pack doesn't have too much, but hopefully this will suffice for now. However, please note, that there is more included than what is shown in the screenshots.
If you would like to see previews of my graphics before release, consider joining my Discord. There, you will be able to view my work before release, not just for my graphics pack, but for my episode and other projects. It also a place to hang out at and to start various discussions.
Wow, those graphics really look like their originals
Thanks, but those who ripped them originally deserve the credit. I get my sprites from The Spriter's Resource. I aim to include credits to every ripper and spriter for their work. You can find the credits in the readme of each folder. Of course, some graphics will be entirely my own originals. Some of the graphics seen are either semi-original or my own, though those are few.
Here's a list of some of my graphics that can be seen in the current screenshots.
-Giant Super Mario Bros. ? block, hit block, and brick block, as well as the slope blocks.
-Super Mario Land 2 koopas are reshaded and recolored (in the SMB3 style) by me.
-Some of the Minesweeper blocks. Specifically, the brick block, note block, and slope blocks.
-The Super Mario World yellow palace was recolored by me using the SMW ? block colors.
-Some Mario & Wario block and npcs are semi-custom. The hit giant block is semi-mine, turn block is custom (using the game's brick block as a base), the fire flower, red coin, and moon are recolors, poison mushroom is custom (using the game's mushroom as a base), and the purple pidgit is a recolor.
Also, I plan on a minor update in the next week or 2, and a few more screenshot are coming soon!
Yeah that's how they were in the sprite sheet. Originally they had had some blue pixels around the sprite that weren't supposed to be there, so I touch them up a little bit. I don't know if the sprite sheet was of low quality, or if that's just the visuals of the game. I will continue to add more graphics from Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2, so hopefully with a wider array of similar styled graphics, they'll be of more use and won't clash with other graphics.

Hey everybody, here are some graphics that will be available in the next version!
I'll post more when I have new graphics ready. My plan at the moment is to launch the update between May 5 and 8. Though, finals are coming up for me so the release may be pushed back. You'll be able to see more work from me on my Discord server. If you want to get previews of my graphics quicker, I recommend checking that out. Anyway, see you guys later!
The screenshots look really good! I like the variety of 8-bit sprites
Thanks! The majority of my graphics from my pack will be used in my episode. There will be plenty of 8-bit levels in my episode, inspired by the 8-bit games they originate from, so expect to see many 8-bit graphics and well as some reshaded, recolored, and restyled graphics in my pack. Another reason for me porting 8-bit graphics to SMBX, is that they are some of the easiest graphics to add. There are also some great and iconic 8-bit games, and having their graphics in SMBX would be awesome.
Also a small little update:
I will be adding 2 more screenshots today, to help showcase my pack's content. At the time of posting this, they won't be up, but I'll add them in the next hour or so. If find more
Hey all! I've added a few more graphics to the pack! Yes I know, I'm early! I've been sick, so I didn't go to school today, nor will I tomorrow. In the time I've been up, I've been working on more graphics. So, I got some done and decided to add them today, enjoy! (Don't worry, I've getting my rest. ) Here's some of the new content, and I may add more tomorrow, depends how I'm feeling.
A few more graphics have been added to the pack. Here they are:
-Thunder and Lightning main tileset (found in the Miscellaneous folder).
-Dr. Mario (SNES) NPCs (found in the Dr. Mario folder).
-Solink's Sonic Mania styled Tetris blocks (found in the Customs folder).
-Other minor graphics added.
Sadly, progress will be slow in the next week or so. I have homework to catch up on and I have my finals coming up, so hopefully these small updates will be enough for now. Within the next month or 2, I'll try and add a sprawling amount of graphics, so stay tune till the next update! I also want to try and improve the structure of my posts, specifically for updates and for the main post. Anyway, see you next time!
The new update looks cool and also take your time, nobody is expecting you to do updates at such a rapid pace.
Thanks! I am probably pumping out a lot updates, huh? lol
I may just hold off for a bit and release content in bigger chunks. I've been making a lot quickly because I actually thoroughly enjoy converting games' sprites and such to SMBX. My original gfx content won't be as abundant, but I hope the variety of graphics I provide will be appreciated.
Hey 64searchman46, are you planning to make your gfx be compatible with 1.3 as well? I don't use 1.3 but there are already plenty of people using it and they might want to use your gfx.
I'll try to make a legacy version of my pack, but some gfx will be exclusive to 2.0. Of course, this would take a LOT of time, so if anyone could help with that, I'd appreciate it! But the 2.0 version is my main priority, so more will be done with the 2.0 version than the legacy version, if that ever comes to fruition.
