Ladies and gentlemen!
Let's start with disclaimer!
That's right, with disclaimer.
All characters in this episode are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, forum members, events, etc. is purely coincidental. This episode is not pretend to be a sequel or a prequel or any another part of any SMBX episode series ever. It's just fun fiction.

Plot:
Spoiler: show

btw, cheating with changing character on the world map will not help you :3
Episode is compatible with 0.7.2 version of LunaLua and have two parts in:
Spoiler: show
First one is main, can be completed without LunaLua (don't recommended).
Extra part starts after the Lunar Gate, which can be reached after the main part is done. Save 3 allows you to start directly before this part.
Difficulty may be tough sometimes, also they are some puzzles which aren't looking as puzzles. Or looking so - depends of your perception. Anyway, you'd better bet on your skill than any powerups.

[!] This episode is not intended to coop playing. Moreover, starting from SMBX 1.3.0.2 there is only single 1p mode actually available in this episode. I don't care if you would get something wrong in coop mode playing.

This looks like a great SMBX Fun Fiction. And if only I know who the hero of the story is... Knux of Valtteri?

WOW! ...Just, wow! An episode that doesn't require SMBX 2.0 Beta 24 X Alpha Pro Skater Madden NBA 2k19 & Knuckles! Thank you litchh! I'll be sure to give this one a go! And I'll also probably review it.

Can this be played in 2.0? (I ask since you state "compatible with lua version 0.7.2" and there have been further versions since)

I tested it on Beta 3, so it should be playable.

This looks great and I'd like to try it, but please make a Download Link for MediaFire. I don't use Google Drive. I download from Dropbox or MediaFire. If possible, could you please set it up soon?

Since I was creating that thing compatible with 0.7.2 version of LunaLua & 1.3.0.2 version of SMBX, I used earlier API versions, including cinematX.lua for some extra levels, which may cause some graphical glitches while playing in SMBX 1.3.0.2. That's why I updated episode's archive and added Patch1

Regarding post requesting mediafire link - I have limited space for uploading and also people requested before to not place episodes on mediafire. So I decided to place large things on google drive mostly and use mediafire for separate levels and so on.

Dead memes, the episode.
IIRC Darkonius for one specifically asked me to stop with the onions in 2k1x games after Redemption or so, 2 years ago. The joke was getting stale back then anyway so we stopped.

Also the fact that I'm being listed next to a literal pschopath with only Camacho in between makes me uncomfortable.

After playing.. yeah basically the first line. I got bored at the kill-all-enemies temple and just shadowstar'd through the rest while outright skipping all the painfully slow autoscrollers in the way. The problem with making satirical levels is always that you ask people to play your satirical levels, so making them actually enjoyable to play would be a good first step, don't you think?

I know, this episode is kinda crappy, but I still have to update this because of some critical bugs. Why now, 2 years later? Welp, those bugs all happens under certain conditions which aren't evident. And most of them are in Post-game, which has more lunadll & lunalua codes.

Changelog:
Spoiler: show
- Fixed bug on 2-nd checkpoint on the Great Castle
- Fixed bug on 2-nd checkpoint on Heatman's stage (it could break if player died more than once after get it)
- Fixed sudden death after finishing Volkmire's Inferno (it could happen if player died on the last phase before replaying)
- Added hint marks for spiked level which point at something to help complete the hardest part (hint marks appears if player died a lot, it works with lunalua only) - I had to add this, because most players could not guess about that (sorry I was sure it's nearly obvious)
- Rewrited all lunalua codes with "findblocks" & "findnpcs". PAL is not recommended to play though.
