    Dead before it started thanks to smile boom. well i guess it was inevitible. unless... i kept a secret game inside a original (bad) game! yes! this could work. i think i have to test it. unless they go through the code...
    You could try encrypting it using actorbug's PACK tool (74N3F3D4). The key is also available on the "Games and Programs" page. By the way, you seem to be good with pixel art. That's good! Remember, just take lighter steps and work on something smaller first. Hell, make a few practice programs before working on those smaller programs (99 bottles of beer, anyone?). Once you've got a grasp on SmileBASIC, you can use your programming knowledge combined with your pixel art skills to make a really good game, even that PvZs one you were talking about before. If you do decide to work on PvZs again after learning more about SmileBASIC, I would recommend re-coding it from scratch if you have any existing code. This will allow you to easily apply any new skills you've learned. Save the graphics though, there isn't anything wrong with them.

    I have nothing to big. just a title screen with music, and it asking for your name. After that it says thank you ___ for 5 seconds and then ends the program.:-\ Although i was trying to learn how to load this map i created and make it where the touch screen tapped the 2 screen then it would start a level. (which would be it's own thing)

    Ok, let's back up a bit. Plants Vs. Zombies is not your property. If you want to make a fan game that is for you and only you and never is distributed to the rest of the world, well how can anyone stop you. However, if you want to share the game with the world, you have a problem. SmileBoom will remove projects from their servers that use other people's intellectual property. If you make a clone of Plants Vs. Zombies and put it on SmileBoom's servers, chances are it will get taken down. Even if it doesn't Zynga/PopCap can bring legal proceedings against you. It doesn't matter if you are making money off of it or not. All is not lost, because Copyright is based on expressions of ideas and not the ideas themselves. So, if you want to make Squirrels Vs. Clowns, that happens to play very similarly to Plants Vs. Zombies, well, you can do that and no one will stop you. Furthermore, if you wanted to say port it to Android or Steam you could even try to sell it. Just make sure it is reasonably different and isn't directly copying anything too specific. Sorry if that ruins all your pixel art. Now, on to the coding. People are trying to help you. You need to get your skills up before you try something of this magnitude. No one is saying you can't do it, they are telling you need to practice and learn with simpler things first. In fact if you do all of the learning and simple programs first, it is likely to take less time than trying to brute force your way through with the dream project. You are also more likely to have a better project overall if you put in the time to learn to do things well. DaVinci probably made thousands of pictures before he painted the Mona Lisa, everyone needs practice and skills building. If you don't put in the practice you are more likely than not to paint yourself into a corner and bury yourself in complexity. No one wants that, we want you to be successful. One more thing, if this going to take years, you may want to start on SmileBasic Switch, the 3DS's days are numbered. If you need some practice you could try out the exercises I swiped from exercism.io (5RDXV3CJ).
    LOL. i was gonna troll everybody by making the game, showing it off and then never releasing it because they doubted me... guess smile boom agrees. ;-( Also i will not let my pixel art go to waste. sorry for anyone wanting to play a PvsZ game for free. i'll still make i just wont share it. Also umm yea many people have created ilegal games and smileboom said yes! but still i can't risk that. I not even of adult age! (I am in fact quite young) so thanks. kinda? also i never said that people were being rude or mean. the only statements like that are people commenting "sorry if this is mean or rude" so...

Express Yourself QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! btw, if you want to show better quality photos of your pixel art/game, you can push select while in your program (and also the Smiletool I think) to save a screenshot to your camera roll. Then you can go to the Image Uploader while on your 3ds and upload the pictures there. Posted Edited by ProKuku

    You don't have to make a clone. It could just be something similar, but different in ways like game mechanics and sprites. Then SmileBoom won't take it down. EDIT: Sorry I didn't see the 2nd page. You probably shouldn't violate copywrite, though.

    Use the encryptor that I mentioned before. You won't need to hide it, SmileBoom won't be able to read the encrypted file.

    i may be stupid but how exactly do i encrypt it? this is just the original game's sample's. :O

    I don't know pretty much about encrypting, but I think you'll need to put a password on it, usually randomly generated.

Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Just a question. Is there any way to load a map but make it where instead of moving around on it, you choose (with a cursor of some sort) the level you specificly want to play? (yes level). Also is it possible to load the map on the bottem screen and use touch controls to choose? just a question. Posted Edited by thou_fatGAMER12

    1 You could just use "thumbnails" on your sprite sheet but yeah, just don't move it around with BGOFS or BGANIM. 2 Yes, you just need to have XSCREEN 2 or 3 and load the BG after DISPLAY 1. The touch info can be retrieved anytime regardless of which DISPLAY you're on with TOUCH OUT.

    Download the PACK tool I mentioned earlier from the key. After downloading the project, copy PACK and UNPACK to your game's project. In your game's project, run PACK. A menu should pop up with all of the programs in your project, including PACK and UNPACK (I think). Change the file types on the side to match the files in your program, but make sure PACK and UNPACK's file type is "---," so it doesn't get saved in the encrypted file. Start the packing process. After it's done, it should tell you to save a DAT file with the extension .PKD. Save it. You can now delete the PACK file (NOT UNPACK or the PKD file) and upload your program. Let me know if you have any questions about this.

    You could use DISPLAY 1 I guess...
