Arino on Mario Maker's online levels.
Beat harder Gnat Attack in under an hour after the update.
I wish anybody giving it a shot all the luck in the world.
Um so, the update came through but how do you actually get/use checkpoints the game has given me no indication.
did you try slamming the Wii U gamepad into your temple a couple dozen times
Shake the arrows
^ Yeah, finally figured that out, thanks though.
Started working on a pretty cool level last night. Trying to work around the obvious limitations of Mario Maker to create something that represents more than blocks and enemies is actually pretty entertaining on its own.
I finally got an idea for a level and the new checkpoint system is going to work really well with it.
Checkpoints are great, man. They're a way to acknowledge the fair progress a player has made. I just wish it didn't give them an auto-powerup.
Powerup as in like Super Mario World style or you restart the stage with a powerup
It gives you a mushroom when you cross it. Since they introduced costumes and stuff, you can otherwise assume a player will be small if you don't give them normal mushrooms, but if you use checkpoints you can't.
So I'll probably be posting a contest thread before long. Before that though, does anybody have any suggestions for a theme or challenge? Say, "autoscrolling" or "must utilize Yoshi" or "Christmas-themed" or anything like that.
I will probably punch you if you do autoscrolling as a theme
Putting forced super form damage (e.g. fast backwards conveyor belt under one block high path at least two blocks wide, ceiling lined with spikes) after the checkpoint is a cheap and unorthodox way to do it, but it works.
As for the theme, I had an idea to use Goomba's Shoes and ice blocks. Because Christmas stocking haha
I'm kinda disappointed by some of the limitations about Power Ups and Bosses you can use. And also Playable characters.
