Oh.

Oh no.

No! No mercy! Go whole hog, the world is your chocolate-covered cherry! (In all honesty I really liked your MAGMML stage, even if I did die several times in it.)

So apparently my insertion method for magmml1 doesn't work anymore!!! I updated the main post with a new submission method that should (hopefully) work better.

Hah! I was honestly considering having the first screen of my MaGMML2 stage be an exact copy of my MaGMML1 stage, same music and everything, but then you fall through the floor into a completely unrelated level. Potentially hilarious, but probably not worth the inevitable point deduction for dedicating a whole screen to an in-joke (see: the responses to the last screen of my MaGMML1 entry).

Someday, I might follow through on my original concept for Maze of Death, which involves a scavenger hunt for Energy Elements in a giant cube of interconnected deathtrap rooms (à la the movie Cube). But, because the judges are watching and I don't want to be disqualified for leaking my level, let's say that today is not that day. Wink

Actually, I'm just making 92 screens of bottomless pits with enemies popping out of them, no checkpoints, it's raining and icy, and the only Energy Element is dropped randomly by a randomly selected enemy...into the pit below. BEST MEGA MAN LEVEL

No matter where you go, there you are.

Hey hey hey. Poke fun at Maze of Death if you must, but City War has suffered enough. Besides, City War's problems appear to be rookie mistakes, not due to some warped creative vision. So it's more like Maze of Death meets Maze of Death. :p

"4. Provide a text file with all object parents, selected sprites, and code for collision events because for some reason Game Maker screws these three things up."

Sorry to bother, but can someone clarify that a bit more?
Or maybe add a tutorial.

Because I don't really understand what is meant here.

Is that only for objects that you create and aren't already in the DevKit, or all objects entirely?

Only assets that you have added. Everything else comes with the devkit and doesn't need importing, thus the issue doesn't exist.

Hello!

I just found out about the competition, and I'm interested in submitting a level. I'm an expert at game maker already, but I'm wondering -- is there a guide somewhere for how to create the level? e.g. any special objects that need to be included? Also, how does the boss work -- should our level end with a robot master? Are we expected to create our own robot master?

I haven't downloaded the devkit yet.

Sorry for being so confuzzled, just not sure where all the information is >_>

ACESpark has published a few guides on his Youtube channel, I don't think it's linked in the main post so here you go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uK6FIyEepE

There's really nothing difficult in making the level, all you do is duplicate the lvlCopyThisRoom room and build your level from there. There are a few complex elements that are useful to know so watch the videos and it won't be too hard afterwards.

RMs/bosses are strictly optional.

I notice that Noble Nickels are numbered. (Soak in that alliteration.) Does that mean the player will have some kind of gauge to determine whether the Nickels they've missed are earlier or later in the level, à la New Super Mario Bros.?

Whatever the case, the bit about Noble Nickels should be updated in the main post; it still says they haven't been added to the devkit.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Unrelated to level creation, but I was wanting to use a gamepad for my playtesting, but I've been unable to play with any of my controllers (except for a flight stick...not terribly useful for a platformer...). I've tried both a Wii U Pro Controller via a USB dongle (recognized as a 360 controller and has worked flawlessly as such) and a true XBox 360 wired controller and neither are recognized by MaGMML2.

Just wondering if it's something on my end or if this is something devs need to look into. If not for the gamepad customization option, I'd have just assumed gamepads were not supported, but I know some are and I find it hard to believe that the XBox 360 controller of all controllers is not.

I'm using an SNES controller that is connected to a USB adaptor. It works, aside from the right direction only mapping to up+right, which I get around using Joy2Key (which would probably be a decent fallback option). I'm not sure why yours wouldn't be working.

Actually, I HAVE programmed better gamepad support for use with the "Xin" extension that for sure detects Xbox 360 controllers. However it requires you to add the extension to your Game Maker on your computer, so it was all commented out so people wouldn't have to deal with doing that. It'll be in the release of the full game.

If you want to use it, then I can send you a PM of the extension. Just add that by going to Resources > Select Extension Packages, and then uncomment the commented code in the following places:

Objects > DontUse > objGlobalControl > Begin Step > player input (lines 28, 53 - 87)
Objects > DontUse > objGlobalControl > Alarm 0 (lines 1 - 3)
Objects > DontUse > Menu > objOptionsCursor > Step > most menu selections (line 124)
Objects > DontUse > Menu > objOptionsCursor > Step > setup controls (lines 55, and 87 - 121

If you're unfamilliar with code comments, it's all green text that's not processed as code in program code. It's setup by the following:

// [stuff here]

or

/*
[stuff here]
*/

So just delete those.
