Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable 1.5 Dev Test 3

Application: Secret Maryo Chronicles
Category: Games
Description: Secret Maryo Chronicles is a Jump and Run game like Super Mario World, with lots of levels, clear images and great sound and music.

What I did to this game:

UPX'd all exe and dll files
Ran all the PNG files through OptiPNG
Included the Music add-on
Converted all the music .ogg files from 128 kbps to 96kbps.

Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable 1.5 Development Test 3 41.4 MB, 63.7 MB installed

Release Notes:

Development Test 3:

  • fixed an issue with the main program where you can't move when entering the 4th World.

Development Test 2:

  • small update to fix the feature for it to keep your changes to resolution settings until you change pc's

1.5 Development Test 1:

  • updated SMC to version 1.5
  • disabled image caching, thanks to Fluxy from SMC
  • now uses the data directory only instead of copying files to and from AppData, thanks to Fluxy from SMC
  • changed to run windowed by default and will keep your changes to resolution settings until you change pc's

Testing later this weekend

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Windowed?

It didn't launch windowed for me (res of 1280x768, chose 800x600 in dialog).

Also, this game RULES! Biggrin

That'll definetly save space

I'm working with supertuxkart, my way to save space on files I don't know is to tar.gz them and have the launcher extract them.

Insert original signature here with Greasemonkey Script.

IMO, you should leave the

IMO, you should leave the OGG files in their original state.

- UPXing files just squeezes them so they're smaller, but have the same functionality.
- Using a PNG optimizer just removes "fluff" from the file that doesn't impact the visual quality of the file at all. It's not like saving a file as a jpeg at 75% quality as that's a reduction in image quality.

What you're doing by saving at a lower bitrate is actually changing the quality of the file. Let the user reduce the quality of the file if they want to save space that bad. PortableApp developers should not change the "user experience" at all. UPXing and PNG optimizing don't impact user experience, OGG re-encoding does.

That's my 3¢

music files

well i don't think i should leave the music files alone since they're 30MB total, but i will consider converting them from the original 128kbps to 128kbps VBR which will save like 10MB (94kpbsVBR saved 15 MB). i was also thinking about leaving the original game sound files alone because someone told me they thought VBR used more cpu. personally on my laptop at least, the music the way it's at now sounded pretty good.

If you're gonna save that much space, it may be worth it. John even removed the sounds in Sudoku.

I know you used PNG

I know you used PNG Optimizer on the PNG files in this app, but I ran them through four different optimizers and saved an additional 1.1MB

You can get the optimized PNG files here: http://renttopwn.com/files/Portable/SecretMaryoChronicles.7z

Also, you can get rid of a lot more files:

the entire \App\SecretMaryoChronicles\data\makefiles directory
\App\SecretMaryoChronicles\data\Makefile.am
\App\SecretMaryoChronicles\Makefile.am
\App\SecretMaryoChronicles\configure.ac
\App\SecretMaryoChronicles\autogen.sh

The last four files are used on Linux, not Windows.

Dev Test 2 is now up, see main post for changes. i also still would like some more feedback if i should have the music at 128kbps or 96kbps. i personally can't tell any difference on my laptop speakers.

Edit: Also how come when you try to close the messagebox with the x, it returns the same option as if you clicked the third button. i'm using the messagebox plugin. mby it's just a bug in the plugin

I'm thinking about taking out the messagebox and having it automatically select a resolution based on the current resolution of the computer. i'm not sure whether to keep it how it is, have it launch windowed at the same resolution as the computer or launch at a resolution one setting less than the computer. opinions?

The way you pick the

The way you pick the resolution doesn't work so hot on widescreen monitors.

My 20" widescreen's native res is 1680x1050. The program picks 1280x1024 as the res which makes part of the window appear under the WinXP TaskBar (which I have "locked" and "always on top").

If there's a way to bump it down to the next lower res, that would be good.

I also recommend to change the line in the dialog box to add the bolded words:

"SMC will take up to a minute to start up."

hm... that would require me deciding how much of a difference in pixels to require a smaller size. How many should it be, 50? 100? I used it on a widescreen too, and personally i like the game at a large size like that, but i'll change it if that's what everyone wants.

The "next lower res" is

The "next lower res" is unplayable for me since part of the window extends off the screen.

What I think you should do is slide up the settings by one so if I have a 1280x1024 monitor, it picks 800x600 (not 1024x768). This will display the full window on the screen and power users will find the options to change the res to their liking in short order. Noobs will not have to deal with part of the window appearing under the taskbar or off screen. You could put some info in the help.html file about adjusting the display settings.

Side Note: If I were to play this for real, I'd pick "full screen" anyways...I'm just being picky so windowed mode starts up right for that guy/gal out there in accounting looking to play this at work. Wink

thanks for all your help

thanks for all your help suggestions, but i think i'm going to just have it make sure it has at least 100 px difference, as going down 2 steps in my opinion is too small. 100px difference will display completely on the screen and nobody would complain because they wouldn't know there was a choice to begin with.

ok, it looks like the game launches and vista has problems with the game. now can you please see if the original game will run with no problems? if it does then it may be problems from all the compression i did. you can get a zip file of the original game here http://sourceforge.net/projects/smclone/ it will just leave a smc folder in your app data that you can delete. Thanks a ton for testing all of this!

No Luck Yet

Been starting to research this 64 bit issue - seems like the game compiles and runs just fine on Linux x64 systems so the problem doesn't seem to be cross platform.

If this is happening on the installed version as well, please come over to the SMC forums and post a bug. Our code guy didn't have any idea as to why it might be happening, but doesn't have a 64 bit system to test it on. With it posted over there, we can get more eyes looking for a solution to the problem.

Looks good!

I couldn't help it - I really shouldn't have tried it while I was at work, but I was just too excited to see it run portable!

Nothing left on my machine and looked/worked great. Question: the cached images - are those just deleted at the end when the program is shut down?

One of the things I'll discuss with the other developers is seeing if there is a way to build in an option to disable texture caching in the next version - that'll help it start up a little faster and might eliminate the need for the windowed/full screen dialog at startup. Caching was put in to help the game run faster on slower/older machines, but I don't know how useful it is when running portable.

Version 1.5 should be out in the next few weeks, btw, once we get a couple of graphics problems worked out.

No, I can't - that's something I don't think we've seen yet at this point in the regular game. I'm posting over on the forum as we speak about this new portable version. I'll make mention of the problems to our resident code expert to see if he has any ideas. Off the top of my head, I'd wonder if the dependencies for the game are all compatible with x64 systems.

Travis, come over and make yourself known on the SMC boards.

Korgul: take note that running the game executable directly bypasses the "portable" code of the launcher so you probably have "extra" files/folders on your computer now. Keep that in mind for future testing when you may notice them.

DEP compliance, ... in Vista x64, ...

Hi, ...

Quoted from @bobsobol, from an other website = "http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=42430&page=6", and an other software that have the same DEP Compliance bug, ... than your Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable "Launcher".

= I have only change the software name, in that text below, ...

-----------------

Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable "Launcher", does indeed work on Vista 64. It doesn't work on any system which is checking it for DEP compliance.

There are two solutions to this.

1) The user can disable DEP either globally (which is a security risk) or just for Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable "Launcher", by adding an exception to the DEP list and browsing for the SecretMaryoChroniclesPortable.exe.

2) You can check the source code of his Secret Maryo Chronicles Portable "Launcher", to ensure it does not attempt to execute code from memory areas which the PE has declared to be data.

Good here.

Tested on WinXP Pro - no issues, and nothing seems to be left behind. Looking good.

Development Test 2 works with vista

I just tried development test 2 under vista ultimate, and it works well, and leaves nothing obvious behind.

96k

I think 96k is fine for a small, portable game.

Nihilism makes me smile.

Official Release?

Are we getting closer to having this as an official release? Just curious.

well i posted it as ready

well i posted it as ready for official release the other day but there are quite a few apps that are also ready to go so it's just a matter of how fast the developer apps get pushed out. hopefully it doesn't take to go official; this site needs better official games than it has right now, and you guys from SMC have done a lot to help out on this one.

Dev Test 3

updated to Dev Test 3, fixing an issue with the main program where you can't move when entering the 4th World. if you have dev test 2 and don't want to update, you can hit the right arrow multiple times really fast to move or hit F8 and edit the overworld to stretch the walk line to the center of the circle.

Pre-Release 3 works in Vista Ultimate SP1

I've been testing it when I can and I haven't had any problems yet. Mind you, I haven't made it to world 4 yet...I blame my Nintendo Wii for being too addicting

Just realized I never reported back on how Dev3 worked. Looks good here. Can't wait for this to release!

Version 1.6 Released

Trav,

Version 1.6 just released this week. Thought you might want to know. Actually, if you want to send me an email, I might be able to help out with the portable version. Let me know.

Still working without any

Still working without any issues. Is this going to move onto Pre-release or have you (Travis) dropped the project.
