About the desert beach GFX, shall I stick with the one from the hack or shall I use my own personal GFX for this? I won't forget to credit Gamma V.

Hey there for a final time.
This time I'm talking the heaviest artillery I have. I'm working on a hack called:

Mario and the Gem of Power
Here's a screenshot:

Bowser sent his trusty koopa, along with a crew of galoombas towards a mine to search of jewels that will help him crush Mario for good. Seeing the team takes a long time searching, Bowser called his koops back to his main base. After asking about the jewels, koopa tells his team has it, but the koopa doesn't and will send the jewels of power to his base.
A galoomba ran towards Bowser corrupted. He found a way to make the enemy snap out of it and after the galoomba recovers, koopa told Bowser he went towards a corruption gem. After Bowser demoted the galoomba and his other minions to goomba, Mario finds out from a toad about Bowser's plan and wants to put an end to it.

This hack includes a total of 8(or more worlds). Find a way to overcome every obstacle. Because you can do it.


The first screenshot has updated layer 3 GFX. Perhaps some time, I'll release those?

There seems to be a cannon team here.

Watch out for enemy bushes!

Half-spinning roto-discs are a thing and I should change the pododoo GFX.

Easy crab to deal with.

You do remember the screen below?

This is the start of world 3.
The first, seconds and 3rd world submaps are complete. I will show only the first one:

Almost revealed OW:

I will change the layer 3 border.

You will play the demo at the next C3. What to do then:

-change the layer 3 border;
-edit the Overworld Indicators patch to make it compatible with the other patches;
-find a beta tester to test my hack.
That beta tester will point me to some unneeded flaws.

That's all that I have! I hope these screenshots do look good.
I have a .gif now.
Things are looking pretty good so far. A good amount of variety and the graphics look great. Keep it up!

I am interesting about this hack due to the mix match graphics and i never really see you Rykon-V73 working on a hack that you made, most of the time your just release graphics for SMW Central.
Userbar made by Green Jerry

I actually do, but sometimes I quit, due to a thing like patches are incompatible or I made an unfixable error.
The only hack I did release on SMWC was 'Comeback to Yoshi's Island'.
Regarding the desert graphics... I am not a personal fan of what you’ve chosen, but, I don’t mind it. I like the desert cave graphics more personally.
No, I was talking about the desert beach, not desert cave.
It looks very good, I can't wait any longer for it to come out:)
Still thinking on a description...
WIDE ? Block
If you're reffering the 3 block ? block, then it's in certain levels of the hack.
The desert GFX seem fine to me tbh

Also this hack is neat #smrpg{mlem}
Still, I wait for the final decision. I thought this would do, but it seems not, as others have better, but at least I tried.
Hmm, the votes are equal. I'm not sure if I should stick to the regular GFX or if I should use mine.
Showing 3 more screenies of my hack and you should expect a demo at the next C3.

Bonus room with another section. That one you can access via a different level, kind of like Hunter vs. Scorpion.

Poison is the danger. Easy.

Wheeee! This castle focuses on my request: the grey rising platform.
Still, you should vote, so that I can see what to do here.
Also, feedback is welcome.
Votes are still equal. I'm not sure what to choose.
I do have another thread in check. Go to to see it.

I do have one question: should I turn this into a thread on SMWCentral?
Keep in mind that progress will be slow.
I love the title screen border, font, and scenery! Overworld is crammed full of detail though the details suit the biomes. The graphics look clean and colorful too. Also what's with the really long ? block? I admit I chuckled when I first noticed it because it was that out of left field. Is it animated?

I'm too late for the voting. Personally, though the sets you're concerned about look good on their own, I would recommend drawing a new desert/beach/cave set or modifying the ones you are using since the other graphics in your hack seem to be defined by big, bold ledge tops and walls.

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
Votes are even, so I'll probably use the modified YI tileset desert beach tileset I'm currently drawing.
The wide block is animated.
Such a varied project going on here! I'm definitely looking forward to what is in store for this project.

Want progress on 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Go here to see.

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.

The wide block is, well... WIDE.
Your hack was enough to get my attention (and i liked the variety, too). Keep it up!

I can do .gif, too.
