Hey guys,

My good friend, HappyFaces told me about how he wants to mod a Character Loader for Mari0 1.6. Well, I took my time today for roughly 4-5 hours and made one. Currently, it is not player-specific, meaning ALL players will be affected. Also, since this is only v0.1, a heads up: custom characters must be the size of Mario himself. I will add the ability to allow custom quads and all that.

Snapshot!

Image

How to:
1) Gather ALL animations that can be colored in
2) Gather options menu skinning pictures
3) Open the mari0 folder and go make a new folder for your character
4) add "player" and "options" folders in the character's folder
5) add "big" and "small" in the player folder
-- Put biganimations0-3 and smallanimations0-3 in their respective folders--
6) add "skin1" and "skin2" folders in options
--Put skin0-skin3 and secondskin0-3 in their respective folders--
7) Once done, you can go start Mari0
8) Go to options
9) Select the character using the buttons
10) Profit

Characters:
Chell
A0zora
Kiashi
Turtle95
Viridian
Yoshi
Link
Gordon Freeman (sprites by me, also rename the file yourself)
Minimal From Mari0 Minimal
Cat Mario From Syobon
Luigi
Idiot9.0
Muffin From Super Muffin Bros.
QCode
Peach
Toad
Turtle from Turtle: Puzzles (took me a long time to make)

Config.txt CODES

Code: Select all

alwayssmall: <boolean> true/false Do they keep small graphic and offset when being big?
wearshat: <boolean> true/false --shows a hat ingame with this character
color1: <string> smallanimations1 color tag
color2: <string> smallanimations2 color tag
color3: <string> smallanimations3 color tag
colors:1:<9 integers 0-255> default color
jump: <string> custom small jump sound
jumpbig: <string> custom big jump sound
description: <string> what's this character's background?


For custom jump sounds, you need a sound folder in the root folder of the character's name. For example: "mari0\chell\sound\" or it plays the normal mario jump.

Download Link
---> Mari0 CharLoader 0.3 <---

Changelog:

Code: Select all

0.3:
Added "always small" config

0.2:
Custom color tags for coloring
Custom colors for defaults
Character descriptions
Added kiashi, yoshi, turtle95, and viridian
--fully configured with colors

0.1c:
Added ability to use a customized jump sound with the player. Chell has one.
Added A0zora

0.1b:
Fixed crash with no characters to select

I appreciate this so much Turtle ^^ this is a great mod that I'm surprised no one else has thought to do before! Well... Before someone suggested it for SE that is 8P

Also couldn't help but have my finger on F5 specifically to reply to this, hah XD

Sure. You may need to configure him properly. If you can't figure it out, I'll do it, no problems. Also, I updated it. It crashed without Chell. 1b fixes that.

You might need to reset your mappacks or something. Most likely because you used a mod that has higher than 100 entities in it.

Nothing to do with me. Make sure the folders don't have Capital letters. I'll check later when I get home.

A bit of a correction.
The character's name is just Aozora. A0zora is the mappack.

But anyways, thank you very much, Turtle.

could you change the folder where the characters go, so instead of the mari0 folder, it could go in a folder called characters INSIDE the mari0 folder, to keep stuff clean and organized...

too bad it doesnt work... this happened when i pressed C on the main menu

It has 4 files, but should only be looking up from 0-3 for the names. Now, make sure that you have the folder named 'chell' with its settings in that because I zipped it so that it's a folder in a folder (bad idea on my part).

Weird, cuz the files are already like that(as it shows in the path in the screenshot)...anyway, now it works, and I changed nothing(except making it run countless times).

Strange.

Well, v0.2 will fix the error (again) when you don't have any characters, as well as some other stuff.

In my quick peek at Turtle's code, he's really setting it up for full customization of the character. He's got sound and custom quads set up already, as he's said. I like how this is turning out, keep up the awesome, Turtle.

I haven't even tested custom quads, tbh. Although it might work. I'd need more help, probably from someone like automatik with it. Anything else I should add to character customizing? I have custom jump sounds.

well, the multiplayer thingy...
i dont know if it's een possible with how mari0 handles the mario entity and stuff but whatever.

so, the fire flower will be customizable as well?

maybe you should check out some HUD modding, for the character selection screen

btw, you can add this to the OP if you'd be so kind:

it's link, my first sprite sheet ever, most of it is customly painted, using some higher res images...

In Main.lua, line 1111 you should see this:

Code: Select all

mariocolors = {}
   mariocolors[1] = {{224,  32,   0}, {136, 112,   0}, {252, 152,  56}}
   mariocolors[2] = {{255, 255, 255}, {  0, 160,   0}, {252, 152,  56}}
   mariocolors[3] = {{  0,   0,   0}, {200,  76,  12}, {252, 188, 176}}
   mariocolors[4] = {{ 32,  56, 236}, {  0, 128, 136}, {252, 152,  56}}


As far as I know, changing those values will change Mario's default colors. Only for that main.lua file, so no worries about conflicts or changing the colors of other Mari0.love's

I'll add this to configuration.

@Vyper, fixed (hopefully) for 0.2.

Okay, so I start the game, it creates the folder "characters", I insert the folder "chell" (Making sure there wasn't a "chell" folder inside the original "chell" folder), I start the game, press "C", and get this error message:

I haven't even touched link yet.. Could I ask you clean him up a tiny bit? Just make him a bit more link-ish. If not, that's fine. I'll do his configs asap. EDIT: Just fix up the small mario animations a bit. And the belt is for some reason colorable, so you should probably fix that.

Mod updated!

Added:
More characters to OP
"config.txt" reading for:
Colorables tags [hat, hair, skin can all be custom]
Default colors for each character
Character descriptions
Player editor shows the correct falling animation through portals
Open characters folder easily by pressing 'M'
Fixed crash on pressing 'C' when not at the main menu
*Hopefully* fixed crash on game trying to load small/biganimations4.png

CODES

Code: Select all

wearshat: <boolean> true/false --shows a hat ingame with this character
color1: <string> smallanimations1 color tag
color2: <string> smallanimations2 color tag
color3: <string> smallanimations3 color tag
colors:1:<9 integers 0-255> default color
jump: <string> custom small jump sound
jumpbig: <string> custom big jump sound
description: <string> what's this character's background?


for custom jump sounds, you need a sound folder in the root folder of the character's name. For example: "mari0\chell\sound\"
