Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.

You shouldnt use a "copyright" date specifically for the author of your respective SMW hacks other than attributing to Nintendo, who made Super Mario World.

EDIT - Just to be clear, im talking about putting the "©" symbol in front of "20XX Insert Username Here". Because unless the SMW hack is transformative to the point of being unrecognizeable of being a SMW hack, I don't think you should be using the © that isn't "1990,1991 Nintendo" since you don't generally own the copyright for derivative works.

I know I have said this a few times on Discord but I'll make a post here for posterity purposes on people confusing me with another person when voting me in whatever categories you felt it was appropriate to vote me in.

I recognize it is an honest mistake that people do confuse me with the other person since we have similar usernames, but for the record I am not this user, TDWarrior as I do not generally make kaizo hacks. I am myself and ive been calling myself The Dark Warrior since 2017 on my SMWC Discord presence (those of you who are on SMWC's Discord can verify it themselves). If you intend to vote for me in future Most categories, do add in the "SF" before the rest of my username so you don't be confused again.

Thank you, have a nice day, enjoy your mosts, and have a Happy New Years, if it applies.

I personally believe that super large (80-90+ exit) single-author hacks are largely a thing of the past. Nowadays, it's only really realistic to make such a hack with friends. Like I mentioned, Gaiden is a recent large standard collab hack that was excellent and very well made. Isikoro World is a rather interesting large hack made by 1 person recently, but even that hack has some fairly generic design in the beginning that you might not care for. If you're looking for gimmicky standard stuff of an easier difficulty, Mandew's hacks (Hooray Fishing Season 1 and 2) are kinda like JUMP 1/2's early game but in a small hack instead. Hope this helps.

Hi. This list of 80+ exit hacks I found between now and 2019 disagrees with that assertation. We can argue on how good these hacks are (which im sure a lot of them aren't) but the fact remains that hacks made by our contemporaries do see the 80+ exit length hack being made, so it's not really a "thing of the past" deal. It only looks like that because you have to actively shift through all of the Kaizo hacks that have been submitted within the past 3 years that people tend to design these days.

That said

Not over. As much as you may not like it, this "golden age" is defined by how Kaizo has been refined from the TAS days of the past to RTA-viable Kaizo (which for a while was classified as Kaizo: Light) designed to be played savestateless and is often streamed on Twitch by the very same people who make such hacks. Additionally, the fact that Kaizo also shares the same space in the hack section as standard hacks means that there is demand for em.

If you are concerned for standard hacks being forgotten because of having to compete with Kaizo for peoples' interest, then the people that make such standard hacks need to put in the extra effort to make em stand out from the rest, because that's the fault of people in standard hacking making generally generic and boring experiences.

Yes, progress of Ordeal will be shown later on this C3 but for now I'll be releasing a major resource used in my SMW hacking project and levels.

What I am releasing this resource for Day 1 - Modern 3/4ths Redrawn Mario Bros. by me, rixithechao, chaoxys et. al. It is meant to be an alternative to the default Redrawn Mario by icegoom and the two existing Redrawn Luigis by Mythbusterbro and chris10125 respectively in the SMW Graphics section as those graphics have gotten criticism before for not having a consistent sort of facial perspective seen with the vast majority of the Redrawn enemy graphic. This resource was started in 2018 on my request and has since been maintained by me and those I have requested to do various alternative frames and touchups in order to rectify such criticisms and maintaining its quality. They are appropriately credited in the .pdf file.

Thanks for the support everyone!

Day 2 (Part 1)

With permission from BigPotato, I am releasing the Alternative Redrawn Spike Tops used in my SMW hacking projects BigPotato made on my request and the version of that I revised.




(Screenshots uses my revisions of the Spike Top)

Download Here

(Update - Forgot to include the .pal files)

Explanation of the versions - The Spike Tops are initially divided into mine and BigPotato versions. BigPotato's is the original version that was made on my request and my additions to his version was to make a Buzzy white-eyed version and add in the missing diagonal corner walk frames to his red-eyed versions. My version (SF) is revising the shading of his take to be more aligned with the way og Redrawn's Spike Top has its shellline and feet shaded.

This resource is also further divided into 3 versions based on the differences of the eye: The Red-eyed artwork-accurate Spike Top seen in modern Mario games, the normal eyed Spike Top, and the SMW Redrawn Buzzy white-eyed version.

More releases will come today, but for now. I got to go. This will be submitted to the Graphics section when C3 ends.

Day 3 to 4

I made these graphics in 2019, its only last month I touched up these alternative overworld Mario Bros. sprites, now accepted to be used in your SMW Redrawn-styled hacks.




Download here - https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=28967 Please use this with the other Redrawn overworld sprites as it was intended.

Other things - And yes, the BG used in my MaGL4 entry Blazin' Burghal is also released. Give thanks to Skewer for making it.

Lastly, Ordeal progress will be posted this week, it will come.

Good things come to those who wait. C3 may be over but I still have something I intended to show yesterday but I was very tired so heres a full cutscene sequence for Peach's Castle. Do note that Peach and Toadsworth's mugshots are not made yet but the dialogue is pretty much finalized.

Cutscene panel art - Maciej (DE), SonicZetrex
Font - me
Mugshots - Deeke.

Odallus Intro Port - Darkbloom
Inside the Castle's Walls Remix - Jimmy

That is all I will show for Ordeal. Have a nice day.

I don't want to get involved in this but i'll say this - While I don't use his rips specifically, his (and others) have been useful to many a SMW hacker over the years that I think it is bad form to go out to remoderate someone's graphics and take potshots like that because it puts into question your sincerity on improving the graphics section and making it personal between you and the person whose submission you remoderate. It's unprofessional.

Anime/manga medium profile pictures/avatars are not my thing, but I won't deny tho that the artists who make em generally are talented people.

I'd also prefer to see people actually learn to draw their own PFPs.

Abstract is fine, it can easily apply to geometric shapes and the such. "Aesthetic" is, well, a very popular aesthetic on the site after all. I'll be editing the description to match the colloquial use a bit better. I need to update a couple of the tag descriptions actually.

I'll probably add Toy, but honestly Space works just fine for Alien and I don't see a particularly huge use for Flower. It's like... a sub-subcategory to me, since unlike a swamp which as a very distinct look and doesn't need to be in a forested area the only use case for using flower over grassland to me is for giant flowers. I'm also not huge on Dream as a tag, I feel like the example you linked could also just fit under grassland fine. It's odd and colorful but nothing really screams "dream" about it to me.

I'm against the idea of an all-encompassing misc tag because I really don't want every second submission to use it unnecessarily. I feel like our tags are mostly comprehensive enough. If someone has something that really doesn't fit they can always suggest more.

We'll be adding some more though. I'm contemplating "Redrawn" as a tag still (though I feel it can be covered by putting "Redrawn-Style" in the name of the submission) as well as a few more to cover player graphics. Probably some more more misc tags for organizational purposes.


I am absolutely still for using "Redrawn" as a tag for sprite graphics (GFX) submissions in that style because as one of the few people who does use, make, and submit sprite graphics in its best attempt to fit in stylistically with icegoom's signature comprehensive GFX hack that is SMW Redrawn (and Mario's Lost World, which is SMW Redrawn but amped up with the sprite palette slots to be having 16 colors for each sprite palette row), it would distinguish itself from the custom sprite GFX that aren't in that style, on top of it being made specifically for hacks using icegoom's assets as best seen in said GFX hack. It still has its place in today's SMW hacking landscape if someone wants a different look than the default SMW graphic art style or the art styles seen in the All-Stars games.

Kaizo back in the day was seen as unfair and bad level design which while that did kept me away from playing Kaizo hacks for the longest time, Kaizo hacks have come a long way because people have made some geniunely creative things over there that you can't really say with the Kaizo hacks of old. What keeps me away from Kaizo currently is the grind that is unlike what you see in Standard: Hard and Very Hard hacks.

With hard standard hacks, the grind is there but nowhere near to the degree of spending 15 to 30+ minutes on a single level back-to-back to complete in order to progress onward with the hack, and that is something that exists in any given Kaizo hack hosted in this very community. Standard, in comparison generally has levels that you can clear in far less time because you do have to play levels that take under 2 minutes to clear in a single run because the levels generally do not tend to stay consistently Hard or Very Hard across every level or world in any given Standard hack and do not have the properties seen in a Kaizo level (standard levels arent strict with intent, do not have short windows of time to clear for moving obstacles, arent precise and usually arent unforgiving). Even in Standard: Very Hard hacks exist both early and midgame levels are not an exception to this - they too, have easier levels interspersed with the hard grindy ones, and I can list a few of such hacks that have easy levels in them taking place in such areas (e.g. any given full-length levelengine and Anikiti hack, TSRP(R) and 2(R)).

Rather, the grind that exists in standard hacks I find tend to be levels in end-world castles or other fortified place, and in late and/or postgame areas, and final levels. The grind in those examples I list are discrete and end with those levels. You do not generally expect an immediate level after that tend to be as grindy or more than the last in a standard hack whereas for Kaizo, you do and that is a norm per how what a Kaizo level is defined as according to BeeKay's "What is Kaizo?" document.

What this can be reduced to as a TL;DR is that I simply do not have the time and patience to grind out for that long with levels back-to-back that require the dedication to spend that time to learn it, which is what Kaizo hacks requires by the nature of what Kaizo is, that standard hacks generally doesn't require outside of their hardest and most brutal levels.

I want a port of this song as it is useful for the darkest of level themes. Sampled or not even tho I like my music requests be unsampled, I am ultimately leaving that up to anyone who takes this request.
