I lost all of my one ups?

#1 Posted by Nibbz (203 posts) -

Ok so I had 24 one ups about and I reached the last galaxy (Bowser Jr.) in the first World Map (should it really be called a world map? More like a galaxy map if you ask me) anyways, i went to save and quit and I changed the icon of my save to Yoshi, came back, and now I only have 4 one ups. What happened? How did I lose all of my one ups?

Look who "got the game early" :D
 
Anyway, yeah. You don't get to keep 1-ups after quitting.

got the game early? it came out today. Anyway, that didn't happen in the first Galaxy. Oh well, now I know not to waste my time collecting one ups as much as I was.

Must be a bug, i cant see how else that would have happened.

@Nibbz: 1-UPs come quickly anyways. Not too big of a deal.

yeah I know, it just caught me off guard I wasn't expecting to lose all of them right before the end level of world 1. I made it through but still.

Didn't your 1-ups reset when every time you booted Super Mario 64?  I'd imagine it would be like that.

Yeah, first Galaxy did do the same thing.  Every time you started the game up you were back to 4 1-ups.  Not that big of a deal at all.

really? I feel like I have a lot more in my save for Galaxy 1. I never even beat that game unfortunately.

If they are like in the original, then your 1-UPs will disappear if you leave the game. You don't keep them.

Just discovered that "feature" in the first galaxy yesterday when my 1ups dropped from 30 to 4. 
My copy of galaxy 2 is still shrink wrapped, but i was hoping the 1ups would carry over in the new version. Oh well..

The game basically throws 1ups at you. And you can always collect 5-10 1ups on the faceship (HILARIOUS!) alone before entering any galaxy.
