This is what we have been working towards. Forget VLDC, forget SMWCP2, forget everything you know about romhacking in general. Today is the day where some users will get to dine among the gods. For those of you who win today - you are powerful, you are loved, and no one can stop you.
And with this, the great Koopster has been defeated, plunging into the seas never to be seen again. Tons of new faces to this category this year, congrats to the lot of ya!
Three of these newcomers became staff, so you can really tell how much we love them too.
Bebaine straight from
Quebec takes the gold as the best staff member to ever exist. He is loved, he is kind. FPzero is noticed, and Nameless brings up the rear.
Mark my words - in but a year, all these users will become staff. If I am wrong, you can take it out on FPzero.
The tried and true trifecta makes a terrifying return here - and if these three collaborated on a hack, it'd be buck wild. Together they could take over the entirety of SMW Hacking, so we as a community need to make sure they can never communicate with each other or collaborate or else we're doomed.
These three giants create music for the sadists, and continue to impress with their ultra-hard levels. See y'all in KLDC 2020, I hope!
Dear god, the entirety of Non-SMW Hackers on this site all managed to win an award here. These users all hate SMW, and think they're better than us for hacking other games. And they're right.
JUMP Team comes in for the kill. There are no survivors.
This award goes out to the best and prettiest graphics artists to have graced SMW Central. Keep on artin' on!
Whenever a port from these guys comes up in the SMW Music Section, complete chaos ensues. Keep on making the section full of delicious music!
Frankly I don't understand the title but I know it means these users make crazy magic happen in The Super Mario World. dtothefourth swoops in from the shadows to claim his rightful throne, and as such he should be referred to as "King dtothefourth" from now on.
Vivi and Fusoya - the tag team who made Lunar Magic 3.0, grace the tops here! And shout outs to anonimzwx for his super cool projects. Now, can you guys all collab to make a cool boss maker tool and also an auto level maker so we dont have to put effort in hacking anymore at all please
New to the hacking scene, these users made a surefire impression on the community with the levels they've created this year. Hope to continue to see y'all in the new decade, you guys have bright futures here.
ASM is a dying language, and these users will help carry on the message for future generations. And then there's dtothefourth who's been doing ASM for like 20 years now, but he's beautiful and he's new to this community so he gets a nice trophy too.
These users appeared out of thin air this year to release some sick as hell ports, and we couldn't be more grateful. Great work to all of you!
You guys all made some great art and rips this year! In the wise words of Gloomy, "who the fuck likes smw
After a development hell that lasted nearly 10 years, the sequel to the much acclaimed YUMP was released, oddly renamed to "JUMP" instead. And to think this is only half of the entire hack? When does the other half come out guys?
And then Gbreezesunset / Miracle Water and Gamma V have shown up for the fun too. And boy do they have a LOT of fun.
For the sadists, the deprived and the intellectual - for the Marxists, Kantians and Durkheimians: If you haven't played these hacks yet, what are you waiting for??
Also man, is there some mad libs way to create Kaizo Hack names that just involves excrement and / or shit and / or animals? Super Excrement World? Shit and Fart and Ass World? God damn naughty boys.
These graphics DEFINED 2019. And here we are - showing our appreciation to these wonderful artists. And Noivern, who ripped a way over the top NSMB graphic. We love him too. Conditionally.
Waterworld - Diving. It had to be - there was no other way. Congrats KevinM, Maxodex, Dippy, and also KevinM again for your super great ports!
We've heard your feedback, and we are excited to say these will be the only two sprites included at the next BLDC. Thank you for making your voices heard!
Telinc1 - god among man, master of the animals, reigns supreme on contributing to the site. No one can conquer him, and they'd be but a fool to try.
The creative mind makes for an excellent scholar. And these people are SMW Hacking scholars. If you're looking for some insane as hell ideas, these are the people to talk to.
The sole smart user on SMW Central, Major Flare, is the sole winner of this category. Everyone else got like, 1 vote. We are monkeys, and he is the only human on earth.
Only the most saccharine of the saccharine can make it to this coveted position. A Certified Nice™ SMW Centraler is a role higher than that of even Head Admin or Owner. And that's the beans.
They do it for the hustle, they do it for the grind. They work hard as hell to feed their families and to be a good role model for their kids. We salute you.
Aged like fine wine, these elderly users have been through thick and thin. They do not laugh, because once you've been matured to the horrors of the world there's no longer anything to find funny. It's just sobering.
They believe in the best outcome, and how to keep their spirits high. God knows how.
The site could only agree on one soul to earn this position - Miracle Water. Here's your reward for flying under the radar!
Jokes are bad, and these users know that all too well.
A dog in sunglasses and a cool backwards cap riding a skateboard. He's wearing an open flannel - it's floral, and he's not insecure about it. That's these users energies. Prove me wrong.
As an esteemed member of the Most Serious Committee, I have to hate these users for being so god damn funny. Always saying jokes and shit. Do you guys wanna be head admin instead
Conversations are good with these folks. Loved by the nation, they always have some nice shit to say.
Being likable can be hard as hell. These users break the glass barrier and ascend into an ethereal state of beauty. Proud of u guys.
They always refresh #site-feed, they lurk the forums like it's no tomorrow, and they're here to make a name for themselves. And we need to host an intervention for them for their own health.
I'd like to thank my haters for coming out to the playground. I might be the middle of this human centipede, but there's no better place in the world than between Kieran Menor and Hinalyte. 100% Horse Juice.
We got rid of the negative categories, yet somehow kept the most offensive of all. 2020 we gettin' lives, baby!
Aren't they all so cute? Just get married already, christ.
It won't ever happen. Or, according to the rules of Every Single Romantic Comedy - it will in the end. Just get married already, christ!
The keyboard is their sword, and words are their ammunition. These are the David Foster Wallace of people.
These boys rock the pretty layout award, so they can never change their layouts or I'll have to rescind their trophies. Thanks for understanding!
He might not know a good name, but I know a good award to hand out to him.
The site loves your holiday names, and you have been gifted with 100$ each as such. Please contact Noivern for further details.
In the land of the depraved, where wolves die to the common man, these users lurk in the shadows chewing on flesh and sinew. They're survivors, familiar with chaos and disorder. And oh boy do they love to engage in posting bad images and scary words. Not for the common man.
Okay there Roger Ebert.
The only way to hack is to hack as if you're still in 2008. It's the SMW Hacking equivalent to shooting with film instead of digital.
Welcome to Three's Company 2 - this time it's full of alcohol, lesbians, and takes place in South Padre Island, Texas.
Maybe I should've made a Cheers joke in the last category so I could play off that here too. I don't know any other shows that involve working in a bar. Anyways congrats for the posting.
Clearly the C in SMWC doesn't stand for clairvoyants, because you guys were wrong! How foolish. How completely sad.
I don't believe we have a way to share full list of results, but I'll look into it and have Telly get back to y'all. Trophies have also been awarded. And that's the Mosts, babey!
