how to make a custom blackout level with light switches?

Postby KeysOfMyMind » February 27th, 2013, 2:18 am

Hey guys, Keys here.

I have a question.
I would like to make a jungle level in DKC1 where the only time you don't play in the dark is when lightning strikes.

Is this possible?
If so then please tell me how, because that would just be fantastic.

Sincerely yours, Keys.

I don't personally know how/if this could be done, but I very much like the idea. Would this be a little like the style of DKCR's silhouette stages, but with flashes of strong illumination when lightning strikes?

Exactly ^^

But maybe no light switches just have it illuminate the stage when lightning strikes.

I'd love to be able to like set how often the lightning effect takes place in the span of like a few minutes.

Could anybody help me with this?

You are asking for advanced hacking. This is ROM hacking, not game programming. Doing what you want is much more difficult here.

You might be able to set the lightning duration but I don't know where that is. As for the palette effect, I don't know how to do that either. It's presumably a dynamic effect.

No, I can't help. Sorry. :(

I'll have to do some research on this then, do you know a good place to start looking?
