I am yogui. I've been in the SMWhacking scene for a while, and although I'm not very active, I still make some levels and hacks from time to time.
Websites: Resources release page - This page will host all selfmade resource I made and released that I did not submit to SMWC, mostly resources made for contest levels. youtube - I sometimes post SMW hacking videos on my channel. Lunaryoshi blog - I started playing more romhacks in 2020, so I made a blog to post my hack reviews. It's mostly for myself to remember which ones I played, please don't take this too seriously.
I rarely use the smwc discord or the smwc forums, except to post updates on my current hack thread or during C3. But you can still talk to me by PM if you wish to, I often visit smwc (mainly to check the ROM/RAM Map or download resources).
In general, feel free to ask me any questions by mail, private message, discord or whatever regarding my hacks and other things. I may be slow to respond but I will eventually.
The rest of this profile page is used as a portfolio of my romhacking projects. Below you can see the hacks I've made, along with the collaboration projects I've participated to and the contests I've entered. Archiving is important, if one file you want have a link not working, please tell me I will fix it.
Last update 15/03/2021 - Added resource release page.
List of my current working hack
My new and probably last solo hack. I don't rush things, it will be released when it's ready.
A public beta will be available when it's time. Work in Progress Thread
List of my finished hacks
Super Butt World 2
At first meant to be a joke hack with kaizo elements, I decided to make it a serious attempt at kaizo. So you have a kaizo-light game, a bit unpolished due to my lack of kaizo experiences, but with the typical yogui humor and gimmicky level style that makes it an unique kaizo hack.
Similar to test.smc, it is a compilation of unfinished levels with new ones. But this focus on the "bad" levels. You see, I sometimes love making garbage levels and hacks for fun, and it's been a while since my last one.
I made this for fun, but I don't recommend playing it. Do it at your own risks.
How to go back to smwhacking? By finishing and putting together all my test levels into one hack. Yes this is a compilation of all the levels I've made that I never officially released. The quality can vary greatly. I still think it's a neat idea, and I encourage everyone to finish and release their unfinished levels.
Here we go. Something else is a hack like Something, with crazy and funny stuffs and good level design in general (at the time). This hack cement the yogui style of solo hacks, where each level has it's own gimmick, sometimes a bit roughly implemented but always with the intent of being fun to play.
"Grr, I want to finish a game, I have too much unfinished hacks. I will make a game in 2 months and release it for C3."
And so that it what I did. It may have aged a bit, but it is still a nice game, and one I look back fondly.
Cancelled. A hack where you start at the end of the game. You can immediately do Bowser's castle, or do some side levels to make Bowser's castle easier.
The NPC area and three side-levels were done. Two of them will be reused in Truc Bidule.
C3 thread with demo: Link
A very old hack started in 2009, then lost the file and found it back on october 2017. But now cancelled too.
A 8-bit style hack with new characters and graphics from various NES/GB games. Was supposed to be played arcade style, where a game over send you to the beginning.
C3 thread with demo: Link
List of collaboration projects I've participated
A romhack with more freedom. Let's ignore the level design standards and make random fun levels.
4chan made a second romhack. And it's very based. With lots of great ideas and fun levels, it feels like a fresh breath of air in the SMWromhack world. I recommend everyone to experience this unique hack.
More like KUMP. Unlike YUMP1, this is not strictly garbage/joke levels. The rule was make what you want. No restriction on the difficulty. So be warned, there are many levels approaching kaizo-light difficulty, so it may not be for everyone (or use savestates).
Made a level.
Hack from the famous hacker known as 4chan. Made from many anonymous users, of varied experiences and background. You don't know what to expect and I love it for that.
It's anonymous but you can probably guess which level I've made.
A romhack of Yoshi's Island? Yes, and it's cool. Well I think it is. It's my first YI hack but I'm trying to make it unique and interesting (and silly sometimes). There's a demo with world 1.
Here is the thread on smwcentral: link
Ballser adventure (temporary title)
I made one level so far before giving up, hurray!
Super Mario Ocean 2
A vanilla hack, not sequel of Ocean 1, it's the same story but with news worlds and levels. It was a very good hacks, I finished it at 85%, but my USB key died and the game was inside. And no back-up in my computer. Feel bad man.
Super Mario Versus Bowser New Army
I started a chocolate hack and made two worlds, but I lost my motivation. Maybe I will finish it, but it will probably not be before 2038. Anyway you can still play the demo with world 1 and 2. Link

List of my very old projects (before smwcentral)
These hacks are very old and of very bad quality compared to today standards. I put them here for archival reasons but I don't recommend to play them. Most of them are in french with lot of spelling mistakes.
Ruper Sado World (aka Super Mario Unfinished)
After Ruper Maso World, the vanilla failure, let's make a chocolate hack. I never finished it. But it was not bad. I posted a unfinished version of the game some time later (a little after finishing Super Mario Ocean) Link
Tried another project, gave up after making a one world demo. Link
Super Merde World 2
Another poop. A parody of one of Lexou's game, SMB4 and the 4 stuffs.
/!\ The ROM is corrupted. Depending on emulators it can not work or be playable with no sound. Link
Super Merde World
Merde is the french word for shit. So you know what to expect when playing this game. Link
Ruper Maso World
My first game. Made before SMWCentral had a forum. It is a noob hack, like everyone's first SMW hack. Link
Super Masto Bros (SMB1 romhack)
My first finished hack was a SMB1 hack, not a SMW hack. It is a little crappy, but that's okay. Patch on a Super Mario Bros NES ROM. Link
