(SMBX2.0) Graphics Problems

Postby thedarkcave215 » Wed Jun 24, 2020 6:56 pm

I've recently moved all of my old 1.3 episodes over to 2.0, but just today I've encountered some graphics problems...

For example, the Card Roulette is improperly centered and doesn't animate right:
Image

The Grey Snifits were also having some problems, but it seems to be gone now.

And this Star Exit isn't flashing:


How can I fix this? It's really starting to tick me off...
It also seems to be totally random when this happens.
Soon enough, this pandemic will be over. ;)

The card roulette looks like an npc.txt file is changing things, but without the relevant graphic replacement, making it appear wonky.

The star exit isn't a bug - stars don't flash if you've already collected them on that save file.

Ah, okay! The star makes sense. But there's no npc.txt file, the level in the screenshot is The Water Is Not A Lie from The Invasion 2. I looked in the graphics folder for that level, but there wasn't anything there...

I also had some troubles with monty moles in Shell Heaven from the same episode. Their "falling" sprite didn't show up, and there was a weird line above the "running" animation.

The Invasion 2 wasn't made with SMBX2, so those Monty Moles are likely resprited Bully NPCs, since SMBX 1.3 has no Monty Moles.

I just played The Water Is A Lie and for me the roulette appears normal.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

It could be something in the episode folder.

Maybe... The grey snifits in The Rawest Forest were split in half and assembled wrong.

Also, the small mario sprite in Return to Dinosaur Land has a black box around it on the world map. Does anyone have a version of this that doesn't have that problem?

And here's a picture of that:

Definitely some problem with Masked gifs, though you could always remove it and use MDAs SMW mario

To do that you could remove the mario-1 to 7.gif files and masks, and then create a luna.lua file in the episode folder where you put

Code: Select all

Player.setCostume(CHARACTER_MARIO, "SMW-Mario")
Player.setCostume(CHARACTER_LUIGI, "SMW-Luigi")
My episode lol:

OK, I'll try that.

The luna.lua file didn't work.

SMBX2\data\worlds\Return to Dinosaur Land by Valtteri\luna.lua
That's the file path.

Sure, you just set it to nil, but you shouldn't need to - costumes are episode specific, unless you are doing something weird with episode switching mid-session or something.

I'll try resetting the costumes, but nope, even if I load an episode from the launcher it still sets it to SMW Mario.
