I began work on an episode a few months ago using 1.3, but now I have decided to use SMBX2 instead to work on SMBX stuff. Can I transition the episode I was working on from 1.3 to SMBX2.

It's honestly kind of a dumb question, but I want to make sure it will be fine.
Yes, there should be no issues. If you do end up encountering something weird, please make a post.

Thank you.

I have another question, I wanted to play The Invasion 2 as Bowser, but I can't change characters in the game's map. The version is SMBX2 beta 4, is this a problem with that specific version of the game?
Don't be afraid to make the switch to SMBX2, and don't feel pressured if you wish to not do it. Take my word for it, for I am just another casual user.

It's bc old 1.3 episodes don't support new characters?

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

You can type the cheat code "Kingofthekoopas" to turn into Bowser.

Every character has an "itsame[...]" cheat. So stuff like itsameluigi, itsamebowser, itsameklonoa, itsamerosalina and itsameunclebroadsword will all work.

I mean in previous Betas you could change to all new characters through the pause menu, and you could also bypass exclusions of old characters. However since Beta 4 you're limited to the characters allowed in the respective episode.

Is there a way I can change the editor's language in SMBX2 for it to not be the same as my computer's language? My computer is in spanish, but the editor's grammar is awful and I cannot understand very well what some things are supposed to be, like layers and that sort of stuff.

Just go to the help menu and you find the languages, including English.

Is there any way to change the starting character in the level?
Nothing like using a cheatcode, character changer block or changing in the start of the episode.
I am trying to put in my episode, and i only want the level playable as link, is there any way to do this?
Sorry if something is wrote wrong, im from brazil.

Edit: Im using smbx 2 beta4

In the editor go to scripts -> level local (luna.lua) and put this:

Code: Select all

function onStart()
	player:transform(CHARACTER_LINK)
end

Gimmick is frequently used as a synonym for "gameplay mechanic", specifically one that a level focuses on. A level engulfed in darkness could be described as "a level using the darkness gimmick", for example.

I am new here so please don't criticize me if I put this in the wrong topic. I downloaded this around 3 years ago on an old laptop, Lenovo Windows 10. And basically it was treated as a virus and it slowed down my computer and it just didn't work well. I couldn't even open it! Now, 3 years later, I got a new Gaming PC. I was wondering if it would be safe to download this because it didn't end well last time and I don't want to lose my brand new PC.

So what is "this", SMBX2 Beta 4? It's always safe and never a virus as long as you download it from the official source, it's only that many antiviruses flag it wrongfully, so don't worry and ignore any alerts when you run the Beta 4 exe.
