Re: It didn't update properly

You need to merge the two folders, not replace them. So just copy the patch "data" folder into the SMBX directory. You should get a warning asking you if you want to replace some files, and select "Yes". You definitely should NOT delete your old data folder first.

I download it, now some NPCs, like rinka do not glow in level with activated darkness, in previous update all worked well.
A bug that will be fixed in the hotfix. Thanks for catching this!

Re: Completely new to 2.0, any pointers?

I will note one big difference between SMBX2 and 1.3 in terms of custom graphics is that everything uses transparent .png files now, rather than two files for an image and its transparency mask. This just makes everything a lot easier to deal with. There's a quick tutorial video made by Enjl that sh...

Re: Way to retexture weather?

The weather effects don't use simple textures. They're particle effects. Using some simple Lua code you can use your own effects by creating a particle system and attaching it to the camera. You can copy the .ini files used for the built in weather effects from data>scripts>particles. The wisp effec...

What do you mean by "not working"? The update checker won't display anything if there are no updates available.

Re: In SMBX2, how do I create custom tilesets?

You can use the blocks between ID 751 and 1000, but I would suggest you don't bother. If you're using all 1000 block types in your level, it's likely to already be a mess, so I suggest just replacing one set you aren't using.

Re: What's wrong with SMW Lakitu?

You're aggressive and antagonistic every time you ask for help. You complain constantly, and every time you do, you act like it's everyone elses fault. The fact is, things are working as intended, but because they're not working exactly how you want them to, you yell at everyone. And if you want to ...

Re: A bit of help regarding Lua Basics

I think you need to go through some basic Lua tutorials. The code you are writing here does not make any sense. When I said to use a timer, I literally told you how to do that. I did not say to use the timer library, which 1) exists to add a level timer that kills the player when it runs out and 2) ...

Re: A bit of help regarding Lua Basics

RNG.random(7) will give a random decimal number between 0 and 7. You likely want RNG.randomInt(7), or better yet, a table with all the possible responses as entries and RNG.irandomEntry to select one.

The splash effect only appears around certain BGOs, not just water in general. If you're not using those BGOs, the effect won't display.

That's just another cheap excuse to not wanting to help somebody. I swear, getting any form of help around here is like pulling teeth. No-one else seems to have a problem with it.

Re: A bit of help regarding Lua Basics

You can use a timer, set it to around 320, decrement it once every frame, and print some text as long as it's larger than 0.

Re: Does anyone know why I'm having this error?

You need to re-save the file as a .lvlx file from PGE. Just renaming the extension doesn't change the file format, it only changes how your operating system will try to read it. Since the 38A level format is very different from the PGE .lvlx format, if you just rename the extension, it'll be unable ...

Re: Does anyone know why I'm having this error?

Are you trying to load a level made in 38A? You can't do that. You'd need to convert it to a lvlx file first.

Re: A bit of help regarding Lua Basics

So-called "1.4.4" isn't technically a version of SMBX, and doesn't support Lua at all. It's a separate program called SMBX38A, and has no connection to SMBX2 (and only a tangential one to 1.3, since it was a recreation of that). Confusing? Yes, but that's how it is.

You'd be best off just copying its lua file into a new NPC and removing the bit that sets speed on spawn.

Re: What the hell is wrong with SMW Lakitu?

I can confirm that SMW Lakitu does indeed move up and down, so I'm not sure what you're seeing there. If the Lakitu is set to "doesn't move" it'll move ONLY vertically, but that doesn't seem to be what you're seeing. The lightning bolt, on the other hand, does appear to fall instantly, but I know fo...
