Tip: Use palettes that don't burn the eyes. A blazing bright yellow and a night-black are not pleasant.

News: Exciting news
Since there is nothing overly exciting to note, I'll simply mention that the overworld contest has been judged, and the results are here.
Also, remember that the next C3 is only a month and a half away. It will occur on the first weekend in May, which happens to be May 2 and May 3. Make sure you're preparing your awesome hacking related stuff for it!
Kieran's edit: Actually, it will most likely be postponed. Stay tuned.
Broozer's edit: I would like to thank everyone who has recently contributed to the site by submitting ExGFX files to it - we have OVER 990 ExGFX files available in the nearest ExGFX section now, and we will hopefully have a thousand soon!
I think pretty soon we will have to classify the ExGFX in categories to make the searches easier. It's already way better than before with the sprite, OW, BG, FG info though. Would be nice to see them in different pages and mabe when you click a link you could see all ExGFX by the same author if you liked his work. I am aware that its already possible but I mean it would be cool that way if they were separated in different categories. I like the way it is now though.
Iceguy: Way too much being submitted. D:
As if I'm not busy enough with other stuff, I have to moderate most of these ExGFX files. Actually, I have never anything to do besides idling on.. IRC... /me runs
Less then one day since Broozer announced there were 900 ExGFX, and now there are 946 ot them, not counting the 8 ones waiting to be moderated... That must be one great tool. I have yet to try it though (read: I have yet to get it to work). :/
Also, I'm surprised nobody said something containg "OVER 9000" in their comments... (No, don't start doing it now.)
I wish my hack was ready for C3. I don't want to show it until I'm ready to begin level design, but I've been hand-drawing all the ExGFX and making an attempt at porting music for it. By the time I finish, it should have everything from custom music and graphics to custom bosses, if I ever get around to learning ASM.
Oh well, maybe the next time C3 comes around I'll be ready. I didn't expect the time to fly by so quickly.
Meh, I'm not even going to try for C3. I might make some graphics or something, but that will more than likely be it, no way I can compete with the ASM wizards around here when all I can make with ASM is a 32x32 jumping sprite <.<
