That's pretty rad.
The wall on which the prophets wrote
Is cracking at the seams
Upon the instruments of death
The sunlight brightly gleams
When every man is torn apart
With nightmares and with dreams
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
When silence drowns the screams

How?

From what I heard, Redigit himself gave it to the staff, right? They said that nobody decompiled it

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.

Smbx Legacy Source Code: Everyone AWAKENS

On a serious note, is there going to be any benefit having this source code? I mean, 2.0 is veeeerry far in development, and many people know how to code lunalua now...

No. It will only be useful as a reference for SMBX2 and not anything more.

Whelp... This didn't went unnoticed for me too. Congrats for getting access to the source code after like nearly a decade. May the source code reference help the SMBX 2.0 development.

Finally!

Yeah, I'll use this to develop PGE Engine with more accuracy.
I have VB6 toolchain kept for a while, and yeah, I figured how to build it and run. I made a fork into separated repo to keep all my experiments over it in that.

I honestly never thought we’d actually ever see this. Definitely a surprise to say the least, hopefully it will help with future development of X2 to some degree.

Also the ultimate proof that Redigit was drunk when he made SMBX.

At least we can now verify that this was the case.

if y'all were in the IRC back in the day you would know full well that was the case lmao

too bad this source code is about 4 years too late

Yeah, this source code is pretty much useless at this point, apart from being used as a reference for SMBX2 and maybe allowing PGE Engine to be developed accurately.

One question remains though, are there going to be any plans to switch to another engine after SMBX2 has been released? I don't really want future development of SMBX2 to be permanently tied to Redigit's 1.3 engine and LunaLua forever.

Yeah unfortunately the IRC wasn't really much of a thing for me back then as opposed to solely the forums. I mean I can't say I know very much in regards to coding or scripts, but its an impressive mess I'll say that much. It certainly makes you wonder how SMBX even managed to function at all.

SMBX 1.3's source code finally released, however I think it's too late, now both SMBX-38A and SMBX2 developer are didn't want to use it.
But, if someone want to study game making, it may helpful.

However, I wanna use it, in development of PGE Engine, mainly to correct inaccuracies I did while reverse engineering of physics and stuff. With last night, I found that playable character physics are too aproximal and still different. Also NPC AIs, and ton of other algorithms I wanted to inspect better rather digging clunky ASM code that is not easy to understand, etc.

Could be useful for finally fixing the buggy powerup array, I guess?

I would not count on it, since any bugfixes to it is going to be useless at this point in SMBX2 development.

Not to mention, the reason the "powerup array" is so awkward is that... there isn't one. SMBX hardcodes powerup states in a million different places, so it requires quite deep hooks to extract that out and make an array out of it.
