Tip: Create a fair "difficulty curve" - that is, start off easy and then get gradually more difficult as the hack progresses.

Latest News: HAPPY OCT0BER
Hi! Member of the Month time!
We have Erik557 this month (yes, he's the guy running Morton's Empire).
Please congratulate (is that good English?) and you can read the whole interview here.
We are proud to welcome two new (and one returning) members to the staff team. Von Fahrenheit, anonimzwx, and MarioE are all on board to help out with ASM moderation. Give them a warm welcome, everybody!
Some of the changes include: overworld ExAnimation, more exit path indexes, new .palmask files that make it possible to specify which colors in the palette are imported into the level, more zoom levels, and more. Make sure to check it out!
To see the full list of changes, check the readme's "What's new" section, and the help file to see exactly how the new features work.
Today also marks LM's 15th anniversary! Really great to see FuSoYa still updating the editor considering how long it's been since the first version.
