I'm JupiHornet, former mod of SMBX.org and one of the judges of Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, as well as a dev for MaGMML: Episode Zero and MaGMML 3. I also do walkthroughs of a lot of Mega Man romhacks (and occasionally SMW hacks) on my YouTube channel.
For a long time I've been wanting to make some kind of ambitious video game project of my own, and I think an SMW hack is the most reasonable one for me. SMBX takes FOREVER for me to make levels with, and I don't really know enough about coding to make something with the Megamix Engine or a Mega Man romhack, so those aren't happening. Lunar Magic is easy to use, and I like how SMWC has so many readily available tutorials and resources.
I've made pretty good progress on my hack, which you can view here.
