Super Basic Mario Editor

Super Basic Mario Editor Beta 1.0

Github: https://github.com/GhostHawk10/Super-Basic-Mario-Editor

This project just took the old code from VSMBX and just reworked it into something more manageable and functional. It's intended to just break off from the old project and have a different scope. The idea is to just have an easy to use editor to make Mario levels. That means the scope of this will not include a game engine, graphic editing, or various built-in functions like npc customization and so on. There's better dedicated tools for sprites, or virtually any text editor for configs. All of that has been scrapped from what was in VSMBX, as well as more unnecessary functionality. Also unlike VSMBX, the goal isn't to fork SMBX with another editor version. A lot will still be borrowed from SMBX's legacy editor however there will be major design changes. For now PGE configs are being used as a placeholder for editor objects, but full compatibility with PGE, prior SMBX versions, and non-SMBX editors like 38A are planned.

Big disclaimer: This editor is a hobby project and not meant to replace any existing editors. A lot is still broken, messy, incomplete, and will produce unexpected results.

If you don't plan on making this compatible with SMBX, then why are you using masks? As opposed to PNG files or transparent GIFs.

It's mostly for file size, and the fact all of the content I'm using is from SMBX which uses masks. It's a bit lazy sure, but it's a lot simpler and efficient than remaking each of the graphics. I could change my mind about that though, but as of now it's easier this way.

So progress is actually being made on this? That's great! It'd be really cool to finally see a real successor to SMBX. I'm impressed, seriously. You're pretty great, GhostHawk.

Looks very accurate. I'm looking forward to seeing if this gets finished because it looks really good so far.

how about just an undo button

or does that have about the same amount of possibility as a starman happening in vb?

If you're making this in .NET why not give it a more modern look? The controls look really outdated. Other than that, it's pretty great. Good luck!

Looks great.
But referring to your Q&A..
Q&A wrote:Why are you even bothering? These projects always fail anyway.
That's because the people who have attempted to recreate it (ex. NSMBX, SMBX:R) don't know shit about coding.

I'd be glad to help you, but VB is not my coding language :P C and C++ is, sorry.

Goodluck with it, though!
Regards,
sleepy

The reason it looks outdated is that it's supposed to use XP visual styles because there is a significant performance drop when used, and this is the same theme that SMBX uses.
Darkonius Mavakar wrote:...safe mode?
what?
If you've ever accidentally filled a level in SMBX with a block when you only meant to fill a small area this is what that is for. In SMBX if you left a gap by mistake in a small chunk of land and used the fill tool, you would either have to delete all the extra tiles in the level or open your most recent save and lose some progress. Safe Mode would make it so that tiles can only be filled in the section of the level that is currently on-screen.

I guess I could do that, it's definitely not impossible just impractical. I have been thinking of this but I'm just not sure how I could fit it into the level editor.

Thank you everyone for taking interest! Development will carry on (more so since I'm on break from school) and I'll keep my first post and signature updated with progress as it happens. Thanks.

Sure, I don't see why not. Besides it doesn't matter because anyone can get it if they know how to work a decompiler. :p

Well, depends. .NET code is easy to reassemble because we have tools like Reflector but the Source Code would be a lot easier to comprehend.

Not quite. SMBX was made with VB6 which can't be decompiled like other languages can since the exe does not contain the source code.

Finished adding all of the tiles from SMBX today. Here's a quick look at the current design of the Blocks and Tiles window. Now to start the BGOs sometime tomorrow. .-.

Do you plan to add some extra blocks made by some other people? Like for example, there are no 32x64 slopes for the lower part of the SMW Grass tiles, you have to use custom graphics. Like, do you plan to add extra parts for those to appears as default?
