Mario Making Mods

  • Normal user
Since: 03-05-18
I'm a Mario ReMaker turned SMM modder. I dabble in YouTube and have a long history with the Clickteam line of products -- looking forward to one day designing and marketing my own full game. I'm also a moderator and friend to BTG, working on one of the first mods together to include expanded enemy texture resolution. I love retro gaming and modern gaming, with my favorites being many flagship series from Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, Konami, Falcom, Wayforward, and Novotrade, in addition to many obscure standalone titles.

Updated to a private build (1.12Δ). New Features include:

- Auto Next. Check the box to automatically move to the next image after copying the image to the clipboard / saving the image.
- Left and Right arrow buttons to select the previous / next image in your set.
- Bug fixes to (hopefully) make the program accessible to more users.

Let me know if there are any further issues with the program, and I will do my best to fix them. There are more features I'd like to add in the future. I did roll back some features for a future update, because I wanted a functional program first and foremost.

This is so amazing, I dare say it's my favorite mod! :D Great work!

Thanks, GRA! I can't wait to see what you can do!

Introducing SMM Texture Expansion Tool v1.2Δ!!

With this, you can increase the resolution of your StaticSkin.pack stuff! This means that you can pack a *lot* more detail into tiny little characters. Let's get started!

1. Extract your .bfres with bfres_tool_inject.exe (This is important! Don't use the other one!) and make them PNGs. Resize them to 32x32 or 64x64.
2. Pick the 32x32 or 64x64 sprites that you want to use; edit your PNGs.
3. Open the SMM Texture Expansion Tool and click on "Import". Select a .PNG you haven't imported yet.
4. Copy Image to Clipboard.
5. Paste the image into your .DDS, delete the background, and overwrite it. Repeat steps 3-5 until you've changed all of the .DDS files in your directory!
6. Inject the new .DDS files into your .bfres with bfres_tool_inject.exe, pack the .bfres into your .SZS, pack the .SZS into your StaticSkin.pack, and test it out in Mario Maker!

Thanks to Darby @ Blue Television Games, I came here to check out mods -- and even make a few of my own. I'd never really planned on it -- it's more like I saw the mods and eventually got sucked into it. I also had a previous history of creating REMaker and Faxanadu (Retranslation / Restoration / SRAM) mods, so I was ready before I got here.

No more bugs.

I also changed the clouds to be a background element, which means that the trees now have half-platforms above them, instead. I got sick of the levels looking barren without the clouds, and not enough SMB levels use semisolids for decoration. There are also new ground elements -- the statues. This is an experimental feature.

Thanks! I'll be updating periodically (like right now) -- we're at Revision 1. There are more things that I'll have to add, like BGM, SFX, enemies, other themes (Ghost -> Title Theme, Water & Airship -> ?), and characters.

I've been working on the StaticPack.pack stuff, which is why the next update is taking a while. I did get rid of the castle lava and add the background water instead. The castle theme is going to have a new palette (not the ground palette again, like Stage 04.), and I have yet to decide whether or not to base the new palette on the C64 version instead. Same goes for the Underground theme -- it's too red. I might go with the Amiga Stage 06 palette instead, for a more subdued red.

I may combine the animations. I prefer the art of the Amiga version, but the C64 version visuals are more lively and animated -- so I would combine the art of the Amiga version with the movements of the C64 version.

I want to put the palettes up for a vote.

I could remove the cliff, but I can't replace it with anything really. Not yet, anyway. GRAnimated just came out with a massive game changer that could will revolutionize the way we mod NSMBU backgrounds.

Sounds good. I also had to update my post, as this theme is apparently cursed. I zipped and uploaded the vanilla file by mistake. I have an updated .zip handy for said updated OP.

So I fixed both the background (decided to replace the mountain/stone cliff texture with my own "glass" texture, rather than remove it entirely) and the tileset. The tileset could still use some work (some elements are blocky) and I have no idea how to make the clouds appear. I've tried numerous times, and checked out the .szs files from front to back, but I have no idea! I also haven't figured out how I'd work in any pyramids, since the original models, etc. would cause there to be too many, or a lot of overlap. Anyway, that's the techs -- have a screenie and a download link!

I fixed the Wii U version. The red coin was missing from the image, making the image 1024x1024 instead of the required 1024x1088.

The best part? All of these mods seem to play nice together! :)

The only thing missing from this review is a comment on how *awesome* the "new" puzzles, level design, and themes are! :D What was your favorite theme?

Hmmm... there seem to be major bugs with this mod that render it incompatible with most configurations; it has only tested successfully on the EU version with Cemu, so far. I'll have to repack everything with the US version as a base, and hope for the best.

I have updated the original post with an update of the Colorful Yoshi mod, and I'm hoping that it will fix the compatibility issues of the previous version. It works on my end, but I haven't tested it elsewhere. Maybe this will work for you?

I highly agree -- if we could port SMW Yoshi to SMB and SMB3, that would be amazing! I've seen so many cool things get ported between themes, so I'm hyped. Also, thank you! :)

// Just realized another thing that makes this mod special: I think it only works on the EU version. I could be wrong.

This looks pretty good! The bugs aren't due to regional differences, right? (Trying to patch a US version of a EU mod?)
