Can't Clear "A Short and Simple Level"

Postby thedarkcave215 » Wed Jun 10, 2020 8:21 pm

Hey there, SMBX community! I've been playing The Invasion Revolution, (1.4.5) and I've gotten to the level in the title of this post. It seems impossible to clear... Once I get to the goal ribbon there's no way that I can jump over the ribbon without hitting it. I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing or if this is a legitimately impossible level...

If that ending isn't working, then try to get the SMB3 ending.

But then I fall down the pit after that exit.

You have to find a watch to stop time in the first section I think, it will get saved in your reserve box, the goal tape won't finish the level if time is stopped, then you'll get into an SMB1 section, though I don't know if you have to do something special there, I remember something about a Pswitch but I don't know

I remember I couldn't even figure this out and finish the level legitimately. (but soon later my antivirus destroyed my progress anyway)

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.

Can you use a flight powerup to go high over the goal and see if there's a secondary goal behind it?

Okay, I'll see if I can find it...

Nah, I still hit the goal anyway.

I was going to tell you to use the "needaclock" cheat, but since you're using 1.4.5, it won't work sadly.

Don't need to use it, because there is one at the start it's just hidden above the blocks under you.

^This also is the correct answer, you have to hit the hidden block at the beginning to get the stop watch, then at the smw goal use the clock to stop the bar and go through it!

When you get into the smb1 section once again, hit into the air at the start and you find a P-Switch activate it and jump at the smb1 goal pole.
YOu won't die now because the coins have been switched into Blocks and that's how you beat it.

Yes I actually put myself through this, because i also was confused at first.

Haah, the fun part is that yes, this level has a weird solution that is way more complex that TI2, but its even worse in TI1 i think, it had fake walls and a lot other stuff.

Thanks so much guys, I thought I was going insane :lol: I'll definitely look for a clock the next time I play it.

Here's your solution.

This level is bad and it uses an obscure mechanic in smbx that was also in smbx 1.3

You have to pass the smb3 exit.
Then you have to find an invisible block with a timestop watch in it.
Using a timestop allows you to run past SMW goal posts.

The timestop is actually before the smb3 Exit.

I get that the level isn’t the best in Smbx but es it really needed to confuse people more actually?

Well, but trolls aren't created equal.

Falling for a goal that kills you 2 seconds after starting a level is funny and easily tells you what you did wrong.
Navigating an invisible wall maze is tedious but at least learnable on your own since you have to interact with it.
Finding an invisible block is garbage because there's no indication that that's what you even have to do, and even once you figure it out it's probably on accident or because people who put up with it on their own have no respect towards maintaining the level's intended frustration level.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

Yeah, so pretty much this level was meant to be a quick and fun joke in TI2, but yeah, how would you figure out not only the invisible block, but that you weren't going to beat the level with stopped time
