Because it allows for advance and simple level creation with events, layers, LunaLua.
Even thought it has a Strange outdated level editor, PGE is there to fix that.



IT ALSO ALLOWS CUSTOM SPRITES!!!!!!!

His SMBX episodes.
Zha Hong Lang basically explained it. If you're interested, Pop Yoshi Bros, check out the Episodes forum. Mine are on page 16 and 13. Also, I tagged you both to avoid talking about you behind your backs.
Ahhh episodes (: long time without play one (I've just played the invasion 2, princess cliche, a bit from star expedition and my own project :? ). Now i rebember why I'm not a skilled SMBX playeryer

I'll check them later

Thank you. Feel free to speak to me if you ever need to.

The custom sprites only add to SMBX's greatness, kojimkj. Let's not forget the custom music as well!

That's true, but I see some magic in vanilla levels

Of course. I'm just saying that the custom abilities only add to SMBX's greatness. Vanilla ice cream is still tasty, after all.

Have you ever tried putting maple syrup on your vanilla ice cream and then mixing it with chocolate ice cream? That's my kind of SMBX.

Personally the only reason I still use SMBX is because of LunaLua since you already have quite a nice base for doing fun programming stuff

I haven't done this, and I'm not sure how it relates to SMBX. Is LunaLua the maple syrup? If so, what is the chocolate? Could it be SMBX 2.0?

No matter what, SMBX is very attractive. Hopefully, our work brings joy to children everywhere.

Am I the only who never was interested in LunaLua, SMBX2 and SMBX 1.4?

No, you're not. Although all three are interesting, I've never pursued them. For several years now, SMBX 1.3 has been enough for me.

Finally someone who gets it!

But for me SMBX 1.3.0.1 and PGE are enough. I love them!

I sometimes wonder if I should upgrade to 1.3.0.1 or 2.0, but since I've had 1.3 for so long, it's become a part of me, so to speak. Then again, I could always simply keep it somewhere and check out the former upgrade, since it's so similar.

In any case, I'll keep thinking and researching. May you succeed as well with your cool avatar, Pop Yoshi Bros.

I'll always keep the 1.3 there, only if you know how much I lived with that version :? nostalgia!

Ah yeah... my avatar, I did it myself, just like the rectangle I have in my signature "I'm not a skilled SMBX player but I'm a bit decent designer"

I've been with 1.3 for about five years now, and we've made many memories together. It's kind of funny how, when I was making my third episode, times were tough. Now, times are tough again, so I've returned to the forums!

Back in 2012-2013, however, I was on my own. Nevertheless, I'll never forget those days, and I'm certainly glad to be here talking to you, Pop Yoshi Bros. Thank you very much for all you've done.

I lived with version 1.3 for years as well, but I've easily grown tired of it and I'm glad to move on. It wasn't my first SMBX version anyway, and I had to part with my first SMBX installs as well when my computer's hard drive failed. SMBX2 isn't the same as the original SMBX, but overall it's really changed for the better and I'm glad that it's where the future of SMBX is heading toward.

I like to see where SMBX is going, but still I don't see a reason for update my game

The only reason I found is that everyone is using SMBX2, and if everyone uses the 2.0 version with his new things I can't be a beta tester of a project or play a certain level because I don't have the 2.0 :?

You make it sound truly amazing, Zha Hong Lang. When I have the time, I'll need to look at it closer. Hopefully, 1.3(.0.1) and 2.0 can live in peace.

As for you, Pop Yoshi Bros, I can relate. Some levels here are 2.0 or LunaLua exclusive, which won't work for me. I'm fine with that, however.

By the way, should I continue tagging people to let them know I've replied to their posts, or is this fine? I think this is good for this situation.

At least there's people who does levels without Lua, I'm happy with that

If SMBX hadn't the editor maybe the game could be already forgotted now, maybe SMBX is not so famous as Mario Maker, but there's something that is true: SMBX is better

The editor is certainly an important part of the program. Just look at all the lives it has changed! Although that task is rather impossible, the level editor is important nevertheless.
