Sorry but this is just bad. The gameplay is bad. The story is bad. And the graphics are awful. This has nothing to do with the Mario series anyway. And that virus part was really uncool. You broke my computer with this game.

That was the coolest ending (assuming the virus was the ending, since directx on my computer doesn't cooperate) to a fangame I've ever seen.

There is no virus. Your computer is not broken. You think it is, though.

Thanks, but how did it not cooperate? This would be good to know, since it implements a different program we haven't used and it'd be great to get some feedback for that.

It did this with another game I have that uses DirectX, it says that I need a new version (IIRC, the August 2008 version or something), and when I try to download it, it ends up with an error.

MFGG members will love the game after a long wait. They couldn't wait for Episode 3!

What is this thing?

That's the question, isn't?

I did enjoy this, but I didn't get all of it, as I have only been around on MFGG since the summer of '08. Most of my knowledge of MFGG's history comes from the MFGG wiki.

Yeah, I kinda figured that after the game closed itself and my computer returned back to normal. Either way I think it should've done without it.

It will become available again later today. Some things need to be fixed.

your computer was always "back to normal"

do you really honestly think a virus infected your computer, or what

uh, no. I'm not saying it's an actual virus, but something like it. Something that changes your computer.

From the instant that scene happened with the two windows or whatever and to the closing of the game, my computer started acting retarded and performed very slowly.

How exactly?

They are not designed or programmed in any way to impact your computer. The only thing those windows affect are themselves.

The only potential issue is the

console window slowing down your computer. That's because unlike the MMF2 applications, this one actually uses DirectX and pixel shaders. If you have any issues, the blame lies upon your computer's insufficient power to handle such an application (or you don't have the latest DirectX installed).

Thats not grounds for saying "you broke my computer" you know,

Saying, "this thing is running slow for some odd reason" or "I think you need to tone down the effects" is allot more helpful than saying "you broke my computer" which obviously didn't happen,

Also I have direct x9.0c installed.

Well it sure seemed like it when I was playing it.

I think it's pretty obvious by now that I don't think my computer is broken.

Alright, Wiiboy, I will agree that it would be odd for your pc to slow down unexpectedly, since the game was fine up to that point. I have edited the description to give an appropriate warning for that sort of thing, so I do apologize for that. You have also stated that you now don't believe your computer is broken, so I will also leave you alone on this matter, as I hope you will do vice versa for myself.

....sorry. Apparantly I've caused some trouble. I know I said that I stated my computer was broken, but it's really not so that's my bad.

If you're still up for it, I'll be releasing a low-performance version soon - it will eliminate the slow-down on your PC, and you'll actually be able to reach the full end of the game.

I did not read the whole credits but I did something,but I hear you will make another version.

The "another version" is a low-performance version, for individuals experiencing slowdown.

DJ Yoshiman is working on a new low-performance version of the game, 'cause your computer has a bad system requirements for the game.
The virus part is the real ending. Not the one which broke the computer.

Make sure that you have a DirectX version higher than the old versions. Sometimes your graphics card does not support the game, so the computer will crash. Or wait for the low-performance version.

There's no point on commenting on it when it's exactly the same game - it's better, less convoluted and easier to maintain all reviews and comments on the original submission.

I think your lack of understanding proper English is also hindering your ability to understand the point of this game.

I mean in life.

1. Please edit posts rather than replying and quoting your own.

2. I am just simply saying your critique does nothing for me, as you seem to have misunderstood the point of the game (which is easy to get lost in if you cannot grasp the full capabilities of the English language).

If it broke your computer then get the "Low Performance" version.

There's a build of a demo of it, it has significant progress. But it became waste-side material after I made a life change and pretty much cut off from my computer for some time. So I don't have the source. I even tried to get the source from the exe via methods I can't mention here, but not only did it retrieve just half the frames in Clickteam Fusion, it also renders a number of events unresponsive, due to Clickteam Fusion not playing nicely with MMF2 projects and extensions.
