Hello! I am happy to tell you a "hack" of Super Mario War that may interest you. A custom character was created. I called him HexBox. Really, he was supposed to be a box. He didn't turn out so good, however. It is very hard. Here are the steps.

1) Look in the folder where you put the game and files. Go to the folder called "gfx" and then click on the folder called "skins". (The folders are not to be modified.)

2) Copy one of the pictures of characters and paste it on your desktop.

3)Rename the copy. It should be named like this: yourname_charactername

4)Open it in Paint (for Mac or Linux users: any program that edits bitmap)

5) Examine the picture. Take a look at it and see how it is to be mapped. (The order is: walk facing right, jump, sliding *Turning while running causes you to slide.*
Lose a life *When it dies.* Last and not least, getting squished *Should be flat figure.*

6)Take out the pictures of the character you copied (use select tool) Skip the step if you are EDITING the character. Make sure the background is a hot pink.

7) Fill in the white spots left. Use the dropper tool to copy the hot pink color before.

8) Draw a character. Remember the order it should be? Make sure you make the picture of that too.

9) You're done with the picture! Put the picture back into the \gfx\skins folder. Make sure the name of the picture is formatted like step 3. Mine is jaron_HexBox

10) Open Super Mario War. In the character selection screen, find the name of the character you made. It should be "charactername" step 3. I'd look for HexBox. Enjoy your character! Tell friends about it!

Characters MAY not come out the way you want it, so don't threaten me about your deformed creation.

This is more a tutorial than anything. If you DO count it as a mod, it's not even a huge one like super mari war 5.
Likely will be moved elsewhere in a bit.

WELLLLL!!!!! "Mr. Smarty," This is for other peoples' enjoyment. If you don't like it, post your harsh remarks elsewhere. I didn't say "mod," I said "hack," and it can be anything. I discovered it. It doesn't have to be HUGE! If I can't mess around, and find the character files, then complain to someone else. I didn't modify the game, I created a custom character.

Sorry man, this isn't a hack.

By the same definition you're using I've hacked my computer by making a Hello World executable in C#.

edit- It's not that he didn't like it, it's just that this isn't a hack.

The fact you're just editing a file in a folder called "skins" make me think this was a feature the creator wanted people to use, but it might not have been documented before, good find.


Am I the only one who has never even heard of Super Mario War?
It rings a bell, but *shrugs*

OP, as a general rule, you usually hang around forums for a few days or weeks before making a thread. Especially a news thread. As it is though,

I have no problem with what you're doing, it's actually not bad, and could be a good tutorial if you edit the text a little to be less about "hexbox" and just make it a general super mario war character edit tutorial, especially considering the fact that this isn't actually about how to get your character in it at all (there's not even links to a way for people to obtain the "hexbox" player skin).
Not news, but not badly written. Think out your posts a bit more and you'll do fine here.

The info here really doesn't make sense out of context and there's no source. Plus from what I understood, this sounds like self advertisement of a mod you made.

For now I'll move this General Off Topic but I'll leave a report with the mods to see what further action should be taken.

So I need a source... of something I discovered? Not anyone else. I even looked it up. No word on modifying characters or creating them I am the first! And what do you mean GENERAL OFF TOPIC? COME>>>> ONNNNNNN!!!!!
