Tip: After editing your overworld, make sure to use an EMPTY save file, as save files with progress may load Mario's position based on previous versions of the overworld. Note that altered level flags will also only take effect on new save files.

I concurr, will invoke support rule on this. Wouldn't mind seeing more library-themed music for smw hacks.

On Pixel Art Requests: I generally do not accept work unless I either have the time, if I see your project worth my time to contribute towards, and that is usually me doing the approaching to you on that.
-I also do not accept speculative work as I do have various art I made on-hand with me.
-I am more receptive to equivalent exchange of resources in which case, you can DM me wherever I have an active presence on for the details.
-Other times I'm availible for your project is C3 request threads I may run.




I still think you should keep the accuracy focus on handling ripped submissions from commercial (paid triple-A and indie game studio games) and freeware games since people use rips generally in similar contexts to the original source game with their level designs. The artistic quality of graphics should be explicit of a metric to judge for acceptance and rejection when it comes to user-made graphical resources that get submitted.

As for the slots, I like this idea and I would go with the option of listing what ExGFX slots a submission uses by default (basically the third option), but I would still expect more savvy level designers being able to remap the slots and Map16 as needed.

Also why should there be another graphics remoderation?

Remember that this is a hobby. If you don't like, why you get so upset about it? Instead of criticizing other people for the sake of criticizing, why don't you try to write some before calling them "poorly written fanfiction"? People have no moral obligation of writing good lores or learn to be writers. They can write wherever they want. The important thing will always be the levels and how it feels to play a hack. Lore is just a presentation thing.


at the risk of sounding elitist -- i'm hardly expecting anything from a site of genuine amateurs doing something as a hobby

if plot is the emphasis of the hack that's fine, but if i'm playing it, and the cutscenes take a front seat and won't let me skip them, then i immediately lose interest. if i feel my time is being wasted i won't hesitate to stop playing it immediately.

if you're going to force me to sit through cutscenes or dialog, at least make the story interesting. it's mario, it doesn't need some deep plot where mario ponders the meaning of his quest or meets with sages from the Land Of Ancientsā„¢ to discuss how bowser is going to nuke florida or something


actually on second thought that'd be a plot i would actually be interested in, so there we go. finally, a mario fan plot i can be interested in. it'd even fit with the snes era's weird "trying to partly push mario into the real world" with the cartoon, mario is missing, mario's time machine, etc.


I dont disagree with your post either when it comes to expecting anything from geniune amaeteurs doing something as a hobby and that the plot of ROM-Hacks should be written well, but I don't think that a SMW hack needs to necessarily conform to the in-universe rules and themes Nintendo sets with their creations...hell any fangame or ROM-hack of any IP should be free to deviate from the source material and shouldnt be judged badly for that because we arent constrained by said rules of said source materials.

(And personally I don't really need story-heavy platformer games.)


You say that but from experience ive seen that on people seeing storytelling as unnecessary be paired up with the fact that those same people say that "It's a Mario hack" or variation thereof, as a reason to just criticize the plot being bad and not play the hack because of the hack having storytelling elements that goes beyond what the fans accept of what Nintendo establishes for Mario whether or not the writing is good or bad independent of it. That's a bit discouraging for those who want and like not having to be constrained by the official canon setting and established rules and themes Mario (and other IPs) has.

Def. supporting this request, will open up for more graphics and level design ideas that can have such properties.

You have your opinions as do everyone else. Can just filter it out and not play them as im sure you are already doing. This thread has already soured people because some of y'all take it too far.

As long as the section is short if the scroll speed is slow, if the way the autoscroll moves changes directions, and if there is adequate checkpointing before and after those sections regardless of scrolling speed and section length, and if the level is designed to keep you on your toes, those would be the good ones.

It is easy to mess up and make the level a chore to play, thats why I hardly use autoscrollers period in my levels.

Keep in mind the only reason it's so frowned upon is because of how much it was used back in the day back when they were considered "good puzzles". This trend ended when SMWCP released and everyone realized that, no, an entire hack where the majority of the levels are basically you carrying stuff from one side to the other isn't fun or engaging.

It can be done well, but if you want an example on how not to do it, that hack demonstrates it hilariously well. As long as you take notes, I'm sure it can in an interesting way.


^^^^ This.

The P-Switch/Key/Springboard hunts that were a thing before SMWCP1 and in that hack aren't a thing I want to see returning again. A lot of it is just artificially padding out the level that makes it a chore to play because its the only main gimmick the level is going for.

If its like, 0-3 screens for the Switch/Spring/Key to use with minimal to no backtracking involved after finding it, then its fine but again, see the criticisms people have with that style of level design.

Sampled - Preferably not as I prefer the OG SMW instrument samples, tho I won't mind if you opt to do it sampled instead.

Anyways this is one of those deserty songs that have a chill sort of vibe to it.

https://bin.smwcentral.net/u/5831/venus%2Bjudging%2Bwithout%2Bthe%2Bexcel%2Bformat.txt

Hey Valentine, idk if you mind this but Venus's judging format isn't easy to navigate because of the way Excel handles its cell space and bar scrolling which makes it hard for people like me to read so I provided another format that is more easily readable and I think for future reference, Excel shouldn't be allowed as a valid format for judge applicants to use for their judging. Hope you don't mind.

And to those voting, please vote on what you think on how well the judge applicants critiqued the sample levels that were experienced.

There is nothing wrong with editing a background to fit the style for your own projects when said BG is available in the Graphics Section for everyone to use.

That said, I do like your commitment to be working on your hack every October and I do hope you can get something out in time.

Man, more than one year later and I still stand by this but I will elaborate on why I say to archive everything.

Most websites do not last forever. They are like houses that you have to maintain for as long as you are or aren't willing to do such a thing. Additionally, many rely on external hosting providers, both free and paid, that can shut down at any point in time and for communities such as this, I do hope people backed up the SMW hacking resources they share on here. Sites like Zandro's SMWDB provide a way forward on having repositories for other resources this site currently hosts as it does for SMW hacks.

I only added those 2 is because it meets the criteria laid above of best non-kaizo hacks released this year featuring Mario and is what the general consensus of what the community thinks.

That said, I did found one more that the community likes and meets the criteria above - Super Isikoro Mario World.
