How to collect the SMB3 Star without ending the level?

Postby willizika96 » Fri Feb 22, 2019 2:21 pm

Hello guys, I need help with the SMB3 Star (that one that floats and is used to open doors that have a star number required).

I want to put some of that Stars on a level, without finishing the level when Mario collects it. In the case, the star would be collected and I can continue playing the level.

How can I do this?

Use the SMW star instead.

But the SMW Star remains invisible when I put it on the level. Besides, it has different design from the SMB3 star, so it will looks bad.

I once played a project where the SMB3 Star doens't end the level when collected. I need to know how to make the same.

You can change the graphic of the smw star to a smb3 one.

Go to SMBX/graphics/npc and search the files called "npc-97.gif", "npc-97.txt" and "npc-97m.gif". Copy them to the level folder (where all the custom graphics go) and replace "97" with "196" on the names of the files. Then the SMW star will look like the SMB3 one, at least in the level.

Not much can be done about that. You can use another NPC in its place that appears when the star is collected.

The SMW star is only invisible if you already collected that star on your playthrough.
You can circumvent that though by putting the star on a hidden layer and showing that layer in Level-Start.
However you have to watch out, because there is a glitch where Level-Start and all other autostart events don't run if the episode is set to "restart last level on death"
Please do not use any of my assets (graphics, scripts) in works affiliated with the Novaverse. This applies to the original releases of those assets as well as any third-party variations (recolours, script alterations). Thank you.

I'm sure there's a way with Lunalua. I can't use it though so I don't really know.

That's what happened, now the star is visible. I didn't know about that. Thanks!

Thanks so much! It worked!

Appreciate the attention and hints, people. Now I can do what I initially wanted to do in the level.

Cheers!
