I remember when hacking used to be more popular and played by various youtubers. The resources were hard to use when it comes to graphics and music. The Map16 files always came with a full page even if only a half of them were required. It was even
harder to assemble Backgrounds right because you had to guess in which page they
belong with is used in the sample level. And when it came to sampled music, you had to write down each sample in a list file or to tick any level with this music track in SampleTool.
Hacks used to be more unique in earlier days, but now it's almost the same:
Original Graphics with few edit, overused graphics, similar plots, traditional
kaizo hacks and more...
