I really like to watch videos of Yoshi's Island hack levels being played, and from what I've seen so far, there were some really creative stages made by certain users. Also, I mostly like hack levels with the Submarine Yoshi transformation available within them. So, what I'm thinking is: can anyone of you guys make a yoshi's island level with the submarine and record the playthrough on video? When (or if) you're done with the video plz post the link for me to watch. The reason why I am posting this is because the levels I watch give me ideas for my future YI hacks (because i will be making YI hacks in future) and your submissions can, too!
There is also a Yoshi's Island Hack section, for playing yourself the custom levels people have made (I personally suggest SMW2+2) There isn't better motivation for make an own romhack than playing the levels other people made.
I have searched "yoshi's island hack" on Youtube and I did come up with a fair amount of results. But it apppears that I have watched all results with the Submarine. Also, I can't play YI hacks because my computer has no way of opening them. What's more, Golden Egg doesn't work on the computer I'm currently using. I will use a different computer for the hacks I will create once I have enough ideas for stages.
Do you have an SNES emulator? You need to download one in order to play hacks on your computer.
Also, if you download hacks they will come in the form of a .bps patch. You need an original Yoshi's Island (V1.0) (U).smc ROM and Floating IPS or another patcher in order to apply the patch to the ROM. Only then can you play the hack using your emulator.
We at SMW Central are not allowed to give you a link to download the ROM - you will need to obtain it yourself.
