    so i dont really understand why there is a clone in here, its only in one part of the video. this is overall just a map hack or clone hack, i still dont get wat your trying to do with the clone........

    The clone is there to mix up the gameplay a little. The hack is a full level hack, with some levels playing alongside the clone. There is some levels without clones due to both limitations and that I still want to keep in the pure Mario-style gameplay that made the entire series the success it is. I've specifically designed the levels so that the clone can help you out, such as taking a mini mushroom so you don't have to, metaphorically "taking the bullet". But I've also set levels up where playing with the clone adds to the pure challenge of the game. I recently finished World 3-3, with the clone it is one of the most challenging levels I've ever made, but without it it is a bit too simple.

    But if you don't want to play with the clone, you can simply play as Luigi. The clone won't appear. The clone is not necessary to complete any level, in fact by the end of each level the clone will be gone anyway. But I found having the clones really mixes up the gameplay so it isn't "just another Mario hack", but something that steers away from the others and becomes a league of it's own.

    And finally to answer your question "why is the clone in there?" well, why not? :)

    Well, that was quite an in-depth analysis. :P

    Now I'm interested in trying this out! ^_^

    This is a very interesting concept for an NSMB hack. Having the ability to control 2 players at the same time would make for some interesting gameplay. But perhaps, wouldn't it be better to make it Luigi?

    It would be nice, but the clone always uses the Mario model, yet the game actually thinks it's Luigi, which is why when you play as Luigi the clone doesn't appear, because the game thinks the clone has already spawned.

    Figuring out how the clone chooses it's model will take a lot of time and a big brain. I'm not that great a hacker :/

    Seems like a nice idea...but Luigi would've been better instead of the clone.

    Wow, that was so inappropriatly random, everyone ignored it :lol:
    Still this seems so simple yet it could make the game so much more fun,
    And why stop at luigi, the clone could be anyone, making it bowser would be cool.

    Sounds interesting.
    Did the clone idea come from Mario sunshine?
    I'll be awaiting the final product.

    Great play mechanics. Good luck with it. Those who are saying "just use Luigi", that isn't the point of it... Again cool concept.

    I'm signing up beta testers too if anyone would like to be one. Truth is I really need some. The first post has the details on how to become a tester.

    Great idea and I, too, look forward to playing the final version. Mariofanatic do you have a goal for the final product? Like a date? Approximately??

    I had originally planned for the game to be released on March 10th, 2012 (Which is MAR10 day for those who don't get the pun), but after planning my schedule and appropriate deadlines for each world, I changed the date to the 25th of March (My 17th Birthday), but I realized after finishing all the worlds I'll need to make some improvements and bug fixing, so expect the final product to hit the internet in April 2012.

    EDIT: World 3 is likely to be finished in the next week, which means I reach the half-way mark. Then I'll have my summer holidays where I expect to finish Worlds 4 and 5. I'll be finishing Worlds 6 and 7 simultaneously probably in late-February and then I'm giving myself about a month to finish the game.

    I solemnly vow right here and now that this game will be finished and not abandoned.

    While it would be cool if it was Luigi, it's just not possible. Which has been said already.

    Now that that's out of the way, this is a pretty novel hack. I only have one request.

    You have to reference the Space Zone in some way with World 8. It has to be done. :3
