world map graphics are broken

Postby CJtheNewbie » Sat Jul 27, 2019 11:20 am

Me gots an issue.

i wanted to make a world map with custom graphics so i put the graphics in my episode folder but then i couldnt even open the map. so then i tried replacing the default graphics in smbx's graphics folder and it worked... kind of... the graphics show up in the window however the pictures of the tileset in the menu tab havent changed so i dont know whats what because the custom graphics are all just a jumbled mess. if that doesnt make sense this screenshot ought to clear things up...

Don't do this. This just ensures your custom graphics will never work for anyone but you, if it doesn't totally wreck your installation.

Also I strongly suggest you upgrade to SMBX2, as it looks like you're using SMBX 1.3 here.

Put world map graphics in episode folders. Level graphics in level folders. Don't do this because it will make your custom graphics never work for anyone BUT you
Or use SMBX2.

i tried that. i put the graphics in my episode folder but then i couldnt open up the world map what so ever. i would just get an error saying something about scene 33. and also i know replacing the default graphics would mean only i could use them but my plan was to make them my default graphics so i could actually make the map without the error and then before uploading the episode i simply put all the custom graphics in the episode folder.

Then you should update to the latest version of SMBX, SMBX2 PAL.

sorry if i sound rude but i needed help fixing my graphics so i could tell what i was using and i wouldnt have to select every single tile one at a time till i found what i wanted to use but everyone's telling me to upgrade to SMBX2 instead so i guess thats all im gonna get unless someone like bossedit or cedur shows up to explain everything. anyway guess im switching to SMBX2. thx anyway.

but one more question before i part...

by any chance do u know if u can transfer levels made in SMBX1 to SMBX2?

You can still use custom graphics.

Further note, levels are not even converted when opened in the X2 editor (called PGE), so you don't even have to back them up.

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.

When you create a new level, click create custom folder, then put your custom graphics in that folder

Just place them directly in your episode folder next to your level files.
