I think he meant where the game takes the particle ID/sound ID numbers from.

Also, I've noticed a bug where it just refuses to spawn an actor (but still does the particle effect and SFX) even though I've definitely set up everything right (sprite set, sprite in range, flag activated etc)

If you remind me tommorow, I'll upload an example level. Unless you somehow manage to recreate my situation/stupid mistake.

Did you put a sprite you're trying to spawn into the level elsewhere?

Yeah. And somehow it is working today... but wasn't yesterday. Must be some kind of ROM saving and/or loading error in NSMBe/Desmume or an oversight by me.


Also, @Mariomaster

Here are some reasons why an event activation feature is a good idea:
* Lets you make event activating ? Blocks, which would
** Let you make ? Blocks that "spawn" (activate) event-activated sprites
* Lets you spawn multiple actors/particles/SFX per ? Block

And why despawning actors would be useful:
* make a "temporarily spawned actor"
* similar reasons to the reasons the tile destroyer function of the tile god is useful

It could also be used to loop an event ID, combined with tilegods you can basically make a constantly-changing room...

There should also be a feature where the spawner cannot spawn any more actors until the previous spawned actor has been killed, again, for puzzles.

(Also plz update the NSMBe5 mod to the latest base version with all the actor renders)

You can already do looping events with the existing event sprites.

Yeah, an actor on-screen limit would be useful. Maybe even something that activates events on enemy defeat like the IF sprite, but for actor-spawner spawned actors (the IF sprite only seems to work with sprites)

I completely agree with what  Hiccup had previously said. It would be definitely great and rather useful if there was a way to despawn sprites.

Hello Asproek,

I tried "that" solution you give to me. There is a way to despawn sprite. using a switch. But I don't know if is what are you trying to say.

Testing MarioMaster Actor/Sprite Spawner

Youtube: 30 seconds

Download example.nml

It works!

EDIT:
Asproek, should we show to community the link of "who" help us to setup the MarioMaster solution?

*sigh* That is spawning, not despawning.

Why the heck not? She wanted to help anybody who had this problem anyway. People might despise her by now, but that's no reason to avoid her contributions. Do it in the appropriate thread, I think your formatting is better than my bland text.

Can someone help me. I can't get this to work. I copied the example he provided I applied the asm hacks but it hangs on loading the level

So  Luluca figured a way to “despawn” actors… Not exactly what we intended, but it works pretty well!

Here's the tutorial and here's the test level.

We could spawn the actors we want to despawn from the beginning of the area and then use an event to despawn it at will.

Despawn Actor Example

This test have aims to despawn for a while the Spawner Sprite, and give to player a time to pass an obstacle.

Testing a Despawn of an Actor Spawner Sprite [20]

Youtube: 30 seconds

It works.

Download despawn1018.nml

P.S.: Thanks Asproek for the tip.

@Mariomaster
What is hopefully a small request: could you make a build of the "actor spawner version of NSMBe" that uses hex instead of decimal for the SFX/particle/actor IDs? It is a pain having to convert the numbers to decimal every time.

Maybe just featuring both would probably be better. Really so much trouble using a calculator? :P
Moreover, a confirmation regarding the implementation or rejection of a despawning function would be great too.

I have no clue what I'm doing wrong, I followed Luluca's tutorial on every step (even re-installed dev-kitPro), but every single time I try to play the level I made, the game hangs after the 1-1 screen. I applied the ASM hacks, so I don't know what I did wrong, plz help anyone

I have no clue what I did differently but I got it to work : ] (on 1-1)

Now that it works, I can finally test on MvL, wish me luck
