If your suggesting he is violating copyright thats just a lame claim..... Get a better argument

Like I said before, I don't care about copyright infringement; I just threw that out there because he doesn't seem to understand my right to say why I don't like it or how to handle it maturely.

....Spelunky is just barely starting out, it's the little guy, it's the underdog, it's the mom-and-pop restaurant in sea of Subways and McDonalds, let's protect the Spelunky brand by keeping Spelunky looking like Spelunky so that maybe it can have a higher chance of being the next big platform franchise?  Undecided

Thank you very much for taking the time to explain your position, we now both understand where the other is coming from I hope. I definitely see your points, however I do not feel this mod, or any other mod is going to ruin the chances (or play any role in) whether or not Spelunky becomes the next big franchise. If I had to make an argument for whether it would hinder or help, I would still say it would help them do better, as mods have provided many video games out there with a rebirth or extended life span, some mods even sparking their own games. (Note: This is obviously not one of those).

Now that we've expressed our opinions, I hope we can agree to only provide constructive criticism on this thread pertaining to how to improve the mod (not scrap it outright). And save other discussions for other threads.

Thank you again for sharing your perspective.

No problem, I get where you're coming from, I've never denied that mods extend the life but I am just not a fan of the theme type of mod I guess. For sure, I don't plan to further express my opinion on this mod, or any of OP's mods ever again seeing how I've upset him to the point that he's spamming his own thread in some sort of fit, yikes.  Huh?

It doesn't matter who is "wrong" or "right" or anything, it's nice to have a good exchange with someone on a forum without resorting to anything immature.  Smiley

If you hear any random outbursts of excitement, that would be because I just beat Yama for the first time ever. I was recording as well, of course, and to show the amount of deaths.. (click to enlarge)



Not too shabby, I would say. 163 plays so far, 159 deaths, beaten Yama once to date!

Wow that's very impressive, if you were recording you gotta upload that to youtube, always like seeing a Hell run.

Not really sure how many times, but I guess it's like 5 or 6 hours.

In that case I wouldn't worry, if anything I'd be excited because you're due to see one soon.  Wink
5  Games / Spelunky / Re: No jetpacks on: September 07, 2013, 07:22:56 PM
I've stopped seeing any jetpacks in adventure mode, from shops, walls or anything. I can however find them in daily challenge. Does anyone have a solution for this? I've already tried uninstalling the game.

Like triggs said, they're fairly rare but I have to ask, about how many gameplays since you last remember seeing one?

If it's like 100 then I'd say it's either the worst luck ever or a bug.

@SoPro- we understand how you feel about it, you have already distributed your disgust of it in the Damsel post.  At this point, your comments aren't even constructive criticism, as they should be- they're just trolling fodder.  You don't like, you don't have to download it.  I don't have to explain to you why we're doing it- we're going to continue to do so.

At the very least, don't comment the same negative crap on everything related to it- that's Troll 101.  We get it. "SoPro does not like the Mario Mods in Spelunky".  We got it.

When it comes to insulting The creator and the artist- I have to firmly disagree with you.  If you had even spent one second looking at the textures, aside from just bashing the whole project and deeming it "offensive to the core idea", you would have noticed most of the stuff was changed to fit the Spelunky world- within limits.

I suggest you just stay away from this mod, any other mod like it, as you aren't doing anything of use for the community- or their projects.


  Cheesy
With that out of the way- can we all Spelunker peacefully now?

I didn't realize you would take things to harshly, my disgust? I didn't even use that word, geez. I didn't aim for constructive criticism because that implies I found positives in your mod. Just because I like to state my opinion that may sometimes be unpopular doesn't mean that my intention is to cause a flamewar. People are too quick to throw the troll word around these days, even things that used to be called pranks are now trollings, really an overused word. I don't think you understand, I was merely stating my opinion, obviously it is different than yours and that's fine, I asked a few questions but never once did I say you had to answer me, wow relax man.

I have not and do not plan to reply to every one of your mods, you have created several threads and I have replied to one of a damsel and one of a theme pack, that's it. I am not replying to every one of your threads because that is pointless and yeah, trollish behavior-hence me not doing that.

I have no idea why you said that, I know that it all fits within the Spelunky world?

I'd like to think that I am doing something useful for the community, I have bought the game once with the DLC and plan to do so at least one more time on the PC and maybe the Vita later on, oh and I bought a few Spelunky minis, I gotta keep Derek funded so he can maybe create more levels later on!  Grin

Wow you're really going all out with this mod stuff, I don't think I would mod this game, it's unique and that makes it that much more special, making it look like the bland generic Nintendo games doesn't add anything, it just takes away from this wonderful game.
Hey, he likes it and other people do too! (not me, but whatever)

^This exactly.  At any rate, no one is forcing you to download this.  Or even look at the Spelunky Mods.... you might be in the wrong area, SoPro....

Anyways, thanks for the comments, folks!  Glad some folks are digging it! Wink

I'm not saying someone is forcing me to download this, I'm not in the wrong area I'm just curious. I literally have more right to express my opinion on your mods than you do creating your mods, as long as I'm not an ahole about it, wait...even if I was being an ahole it still isn't illegal- but copyright sure is.

apparently you can lead an orange frog to water, and turn it blue....who knew.

Wow I had no idea, even after my 1300+ gameplays.  Shocked

You are right, this game is amazing, but how is this an insult? First, they are more than aware that people modded the original version, it actually helped to give it life, possibly even helped slightly to get it to the HD point.

They made this game with the ability to mod it, even with a repacking tool...Which whole purpose is to allow for easy and quick changes of the texture files.

Either way, everyone has their own opinion, and we all know yours, you've actually replied to other posts with a similar attitude. 

My opinion is that it is in no way insulting to the game, the game is amazing, and the "look" of the game while stunning, isn't even scratching the surface of why the game is as fun as it is. The real genius of the game is the game play, the game play is completely different than Mario.  Changing the "skin" doesn't take away from the mechanics of the game.

Why can't someone play this with a Mario skin and also play Mario? They play completely different from each other.

Much love to Derek and Andy and all the Spelunky supporters of all types.


I find it to be an insult because a lot of work went into creating all the artwork and designs, and to reject it entirely by stripping it all away and Nintendoing it up? really? it's one thing to add playable characters but to change the entire look and sound of the game seems like too much.

I have to disagree with "the look part isn't even scratching the surface of why this game is fun", first the look of a game plays a big role in drawing interest from people because if a game looks cool/fun/awesome/etc. then people are more likely to look into it and maybe buy it. The look was the first thing I noticed about this game, I thought "this looks amazing" and then I learned about the gameplay. I would say it's a big part of why it's fun, it's extremely visually appealing and that always helps. 

I have no knowledge of mod tools but I'll take your word for it.

Well, because of copyright- hah no, I don't care about that, it's not that they can't, it's that there are HUNDREDS of Mario games out there, Spelunky is just barely starting out, it's the little guy, it's the underdog, it's the mom-and-pop restaurant in sea of Subways and McDonalds, let's protect the Spelunky brand by keeping Spelunky looking like Spelunky so that maybe it can have a higher chance of being the next big platform franchise?  Undecided

I have so much respect for Derek and Andy and what they created, it's honestly my all time favorite video game and I can see myself playing this 5 years from now. I don't think they read the forums often but I wish they would reply to this thread.

This is like someone re-making The Lord of the Rings or something, I won't turn this into a flamewar or insult anyone but I can not sit here and not express my opinion as my favorite video game is getting plastered with Mario stickers.  Lips Sealed

I'm sorry but I personally feel this is an insult to Derek Yu and Andy Hull's very hard work in creating this masterpiece of a video game, you aim to change everything about this game? why?

I appreciate originality and creative thinking, which both of these great guys obviously worked very hard to achieve. The Kali statue and The walls are shifting are one of my favorite artworks, they just look so cool...to replace them with generic Mario characters, I-I just do not understand your train of thought, I am not attacking you, I am merely stating my opinion and would like to ask you, are you not satisfied with the 400 other Mario games that are out there? do you need to listen to the same old recycled Nintendo tunes for the 24,000th time?

I hope the mods do not take this as an attack because it is not, I am literally baffled that someone finds the need to change every. last. single. thing. about this masterpiece of a video game.  Huh?
12  Games / Spelunky / Re: Do you try the mothership? on: August 28, 2013, 10:37:15 PM
I go there whenever I have the items for it, although I might be a bit hesitant if it's during a daily challenge.

One thing some people might not be aware of is that the mothership doesn't advance the current level count, it decreases it. So instead of going from 3-4 to 4-1, you go from 3-4 to 3-3. That means you end up playing 2 levels extra. For obvious reasons, that makes it pretty ideal for a score run.

Wow are you serious?  Shocked

You get bonus levels, that is very interesting, too bad I never went there more than a handful of times until after I beat Hell, I've been practicing it and it's literally hard as Hell, maybe even harder than the average Hell level. Any tips? so many insta-kill dangers everywhere and having to constantly move around all the time to avoid that target thing is stressful.

No i don't play the classic version. and just to be clear, i was playing today and cant even get past the jungle, i think it was just a fluke. :/ i can post pictures today if you want

Well okay seems legit then, sorry for doubting but you have to understand how rare it is for a player to even reach Hell after that many playthroughs. It's just very rare to see, but I think watching NorthernLion did help out for sure.
15  Games / Spelunky / Re: Title Screen Destruction! on: August 28, 2013, 10:26:33 PM
...And everybody forgot me...

No, I thought it was clear that I was referring to you when I said what I said about people who haven't even played the game 100 times.
