Here's the hack that no one wanted.
Inspired by BetaMaster64 & SpaceOmega5000.


[Edit] Things to note:
-Only "completed" levels are in World 1. Haven't started on the rest.
-Still trying to figure out how OW paths work, so some may be broken for now.



[Edit 2] Thanks for the feedback! As a gift, here's a preview (?) of what's to come.

--------------------
Okay, normally when we see Windows tileset stuff our eyes roll but I gotta hand it to you here for committing to the aesthetic. This is pretty funny to me.
Usually windows-themed hacks turn out to be total trash.

While i haven't played yours so far, only judging the screenshots it looks kinda chaotic, but actually relatively good.

--------------------
I wonder if I was the one to start the Windows graphics trend way back in the day. (that or the idea is just strangely common. #tb{''})

This is definitely the best execution of the idea that I've seen so far, so good job on that!

Glad the hack got a chuckle out of you.

Thanks! The biggest challenge is consistency, so I might have to adjust the difficulty on the vertical level.

I was thinking about using an old Windows-themed tileset I found in an archive, but it didn't look right, so I made this one from screenshots.

Thank you!

Even still, it feels awkward to see the Windows foreground tilesets mashed up together with recolored backgrounds from the original SMW. But as far as Windows hacks go (and why do people even do this in the first place I still don't understand), this one easily feels like more effort and creativity was put into it than other Windows hacks from the past like one I played almost 7 years ago. For example, we now even got to see a custom overworld that fits the OS theme.

I'm not familiar with ICQ, but I think I can implement it somewhere.

Funny you should ask...
Edit: A solution from the competition.

I'm learning how to use ExGFX, so I used the vanilla BG as placeholders before submitting. #smw{^_^;}
Personally, I've always liked how Windows Classic themes looked, so I figured I'd put that passion into a hack.
I created the OW and maps before the actual levels themselves to keep some sort of consistency.
Thanks for the feedback!

Played through the demo, loved the ZSNES joke at the start.

Looking really good so far. I assume some of the later levels are still a WIP since they were flat and empty at the end.

I agree, when those other users make these levels, there there just to show its impressive windows UI level, not to actually create fun, challenging and engaging levels. Most frequent is vanilla hacks with flat levels that is almost empty with enemies placed randomly.

Give thanks to RPG hacker for working on Asar.
