Re: Critical Review of SMBX 2.0 as an Update

Wine is not platform-independent. Emulators can grant platform-independence. Compatibility layers cannot. Like Wohlstand said, Wine doesn't help modern MacOS users or Linux users with non-x86 Hardware. Sure, but it's a case of coverage. WINE covers a good portion of non-Windows users, and is a &quo...

Re: How to make the top of the custom Background (background of the level) not cut off?

That didn't provide any of the information you were asked for. What is the ID of the background you're replacing? Are you using a background2.txt file? If so, please post it.

Re: Critical Review of SMBX 2.0 as an Update

The fact, Me and my friends were doing the same work on the TheXTech side You know full well I was referring to POST 1.3 episodes - ones with LunaLua code attached. That's the only way to ensure long-term platform-independence. Unless PCs become much more powerful and x86 Emulation becomes feasible...

Re: Critical Review of SMBX 2.0 as an Update

Why is it elitist? This is a criticism of X2's inherent lack of accessibility. If anything, that's the opposite of elitism. If the criticism were more generally about platform independence that would be one thing, but it's the specific element of "it's only valid if a user can compile it from ...

Re: Bubble Hud help

dang well is it atleast possible to get rid of the default hud so i can attempt to make one from scratch?

Re: Critical Review of SMBX 2.0 as an Update

I mean in sense, the SMBX2 is not a full source package (it's a mixture of blobs and pieces built not by you), you can't just build the solid and monolithic executable of the game from the sources to work on any other processor than x86 and x86_64 (for example, on ARM, if you just using any transla...

Re: Bubble Hud help

You can't. Not easily anyway. Map3D re-renders the entire world map from scratch, and relies on that to display the different HUD formats. It's theoretically maybe possible to re-create but I suspect it would be a lot of work.

Re: Disabling alternate powerups

Code: Select all

function onTickEnd()
    player.reservePowerup = 0
end
This will just empty out the reserve powerup as soon as it gets filled.

Re: Critical Review of SMBX 2.0 as an Update

The SMBX2 in fact is not a fully standalone engine, it's a hack over Redigit's executable blob. This is a completely functionally meaningless statement. While it may be technically accurate, it makes no difference for people actually using the engine. It's not less useful or valuable because it's b...

Re: Creating darkness in a certain section?

You don't need to do either of those. It's a lot simpler. You can just do Section(0).darkness.enabled = false.

That doesn't need any Lua code at all. You can just enable it in the section settings.

You need a program to edit the script with. VS Code or Notepad++ are good options.

Re: lunalua warning every tick causing code to not work?

It means you've used onNPCHarm twice, just like the error says. You can't use more than one of the same handler in the same file.

That's... not true, Wohl. 1.3 won't resize things to be larger than their original image size automatically. BGO right, background pictures can I mean.

Re: About the .json files

.json files are just data storage, they don't do anything by themselves. A few are used by npcs and such to supply additional data to the individual npcs, which can be set in the editor, but those need to be set up using the editor .ini files to work.

so it seems the "Timer" command in local npcSettings doesn't actually do anything.
That suggests either the NPC was set up wrong, or your npc.txt was set up wrong.


As for the invalid image, that just means that "bubbleImage" has tried to load a file that doesn't exist.

Hrm, xOffset should work just by adding it to the queue like you did... You can also assign any object with an x and y coordinate as the "target" in a queue call. Not really sure what's wrong there... (though 10 is quite small - it's less than a third of a block's width, so maybe that's th...

So these three packs are giving me a hard time with removing PNPC:
Generally, any time you see "pnpc.wrap(something)" just replace it with "something", for a quick and dirty fix.

For example:

local v = pnpc.wrap(w).speedX

would be replaced with:

local v = w.speedX
