Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2 Tilesets and NPCs

Postby DoctorBacon » Sat Jun 08, 2019 11:38 pm

Hi! I've been playing around with SMBX2 recently, and just started using it a month or three ago. I made some custom GFX based off of DKC and I though I might as well share it sense there seems to be a lack of DKC tilesets.

I currently have made DKC Jungle (Day,Night,Sunset), DKC Cave (Orange,Green), DKC Walkway, DKC2 Ship (Normal,Sunset,Rattle Battle), DKC2 Ship Hold (Normal,Lava,Glimmer), DKC2 Rig, DKC2 Mine, DKC2 Castle, DKC2 Beehive, DKC2 Bayou, and DKC2 Ice Cave.

Keep in mind that some of these tilesets are hard to use. Specifically the Beehive and Ice Cave.

Note: The folder name for the Ship Hold files are accidentally named Ship Hull, please ignore that.

Note: The rain effect here are scripted particle effects. Specifically the example rain of the PGE wiki.

I've also added NPCs and enemies.
Just to let you know, some of the enemies are a bit wonky and some look kinda hideous, but I decided to add them anyway.

List of NPCs:
Spoiler: show
Gnawty (Grey,Red)
Klaptrap (Blue,Purple)
Klump
Slippa
Zinger (Yellow,Red,Green,Pink)
Necky
Mini Necky (DKC)
Klomp
Neek
Click-Clack
Flitter
Spiny
Klampon
Kannon (Upwards and Downwards)
Kruncha (Blue,Red)
Klinger
Krook
Mini Necky (DKC2)
Bitesize
Clambo
Croctopus (Blue,Purple)
Puftup (Blue,Brown)
Shuri (Orange,Pink)
Flotsam (Blue,Green)
Lockjaw
Mincers
Banana Collectible
1-Up Balloon
2-Up Balloon
3-Up Balloon
Moving Platform
Skull Cart
Checkpoint Barrel
Throwable Barrel
TnT Barrel
Animal Buddy Box
Krockheads

Also Green Klobber, Yellow Klobber, and Black Klobber, which are new NPCs that use the dummy slots and use custom Lua code. Each runs at a different speed but don't steal anything on contact. When you jump on them they give you a Throwable barrel.
I made this GFX in SMBX2mx3. Not completally sure if that matters, as I have only been using SMBX for a month or two.

I'm planning to add more to this later, including tilesets for DKC2 Lava and DKC2 Rollercoaster. Also i'm planning on converting all NPCs to new NPCs that use Lua coding and the dummy slots so I can give them sfx and proper death effects.

! If somethng doesn't work please tell me so I can fix it !

Are these done by hand? They look pretty cool. I quite like the coloring on them as well as the shading. I feel like it wouldn't be a bad idea to upload your enemy sprites, who knows, someone might find some good use out of them.

Thanks! I made them by hand in paint.net with reference pictures. I'm planning to make all locations in the DKC trilogy, with the only one I think might be impossible being the beehive.

I'm going to update this soon with the DKC2 Rig, Swamp, and Lava areas. And i'll probably release my enemy sprites soon, I just want to polish them up first.

I've had a lot of problems with my computer. I should be uploading this sometime soon if anyone cares.

I like how you recreate the graphics from Donkey Kong Country 1 in your own 16-bit style! And I'll give you bonus points for it not being in SMB3 style.

These are pretty good. Thank you.

Practically anything that is not in the SMB3 style is really refreshing to me, so I agree with you.

I just added new tilesets including DKC Walkway, DKC2 Rig, DKC2 Bayou, DKC2 Beehive, and DKC2 Ice Cave.


I also decided to add all my NPCs, and there are a hecking ton of them.

Klobbers aren't working for me, could be due to the fact I renamed them as those NPC IDs were already taken.

Yeah, the Klobbers are bit of a mess.

If they aren't working, i'd try making sure the lua script has all the ids changed. The lua script checks for the other versions of klobber, so just find all instances of id 800, 801, and 802 inside the script and replace them with the new npc ids you were using.

If that doesn't work, then it might be something with the latest version of smbx, MAGLX3 PAL, because I made them in MAGLX3.

Changing the ID made them work, but when hit they turn into cobrats and fall offscreen. I have no idea how to get them to turn into barrels...

EDIT: So there's another line. However, they still turn into cobrats when hit with a projectile, and my usual NPC 800 is now messed up for some reason... EDIT2: Reinstalling that NPC corrected it.

Also, the Clambo's txt file has invalid lines in it somewhere.

I just came back to SMBX2 after a year and YES you can resize effects now!
I'm going to make more DKC stuff soon including DKC3 stuff which I don't know why I haven't touched yet. I'm also a lot more experienced with Lua now so I might work on some custom enemies.

Also I'll fix the Klobbers and add SFX to most of the enemies.

I also might start tracing the org DKC country sprites to make stuff more efficiently.

Do you plan to do bosses? Lurchin would make a good aqua boss and we currently have none of them.

Yeah, I'm going to do bosses!
I've actually been working on creating an Arich boss recently before I posted this. I'll make sure to try and make Lurchin.

I was just wondering. Thanks for letting me know.

I should keep my eye on this one. I'm a big DKC fan myself.

I'm pretty sure this has probably been asked already (though your original post mentions nothing regarding it), but any chance of potential DKC3 tilesets down the line?

Yep! I'm currently working on tilesets for DKC3 Mill, DKC3 Canyon, DKC3 Pipes, and DKC3 Winter.
I've been busy recently, as it is the end of the semester, but I'm almost ready to upload some of this stuff.

For NPCS, I'm currently working on adding SFX and proper effects for all the NPCs I've already created and trying to rework them all into new NPCs instead of replacing old ones, I'm also working on adding a few DKC3 enemies: Arich, Rekoil, Klasp, and Kuchunka. I've also made a nearly 100% custom boss version of Lockjaw and reworked the normal Lockjaws to being Rip Van Fish. I'll share some screenshots of my recent work soon!

Though, I am still a beginner at coding. So a few enemies like Belcha, Kuff N' Klout, Nid, Lurchin, Squirt, Barbos, Kutlass, Squidge, and non-event based Rockkrocs are impossible to do with my level of knowledge.
