Tip: Take advantage of easy to install Patches in your hack. The No More Sprite Tile Limits or SA-1 patches should be considered if you're encountering glitches where Mario and/or sprites are turning invisible.
News: The Equinox VGM Guessing Contest is now live!
March 20th is/was (depending on your time zone) the spring/autumn (depending on your hemisphere) equinox, so happy equinox! To celebrate, the latest iteration of the VGM Guessing Contest has started. Check out all the details here.
Read the rules, prepare your musical submissions and discuss the event with others in the community on the thread located below! Don't forget that submitting music will earn you site trophies and even possibly a video game goodie!
We've overhauled our requesting resources "system" we've had in place up until now. Instead of having a few dedicated threads across the forum, we've decided to enhance it all with an entirely dedicated forum and requesting fulfilment incentive trophies! With thanks to our helpful site robot, ModBot (who you may recognise from the Discord online users list!) - a lot of the processes are automated too.
By fulfilling requests, you can earn yourself some Mario Maker coin-styled trophies (Mario "Maker" because you're "making" requests - get it?)
You can find the forum in the SMW Hacking category on the forum index, just below Resources & Tool Releases. If you're lazy, just click here. Please make sure you read the stickied information threads on how the forum works, what you need to do, and how to fulfil requests and get trophies.
If you have any questions or feedback on the system, please direct it to this thread in the forum. Big thank you to Atari2.0 for coding in the required ModBot features, Telinc1 for making SMWC function with ModBot, bebn legg for drawing the trophies, and the rest of the forum mods for helping to pull this new feature/forum together!

Hey, space cowboys, aliens and earthlings! I've come from a far far distant galaxy just to announce the results of the EXGFX Contest. Sorry to keep you waiting for so long. Check it here in this thread:
