What you have achieved here is truly impressive and worthy of being called a revolution. But you know, seeing all this makes me feel strangely nostalgic for the very first C3 I actually participated in, way back in 2008. Back then I used to be this account (which sadly I no longer remember the password for)
It brings me back to those halcyon days merely a few years or so after such legendary names like Icegoom and Ghettoyouth vanished, days where such things like HDMA, custom sprites and the like were still new and revolutionary in of themselves. Back then my own little hack I made for that C3 won me the silver trophy for best level design. I mean sure things have moved on since then and the community today is far different then when it was back then, but you know; something about this C3 (and the summer one from the previous year) kinda echoes that first Fall C3 that I participated in over 13 years ago. It feels weirdly like history is repeating itself. Who knows, maybe I'll win a silver trophy for best level design in a non-mario hack thing or something like that.
I apologize for derailing this topic, I can't help but to wax poetically especially consider how strong this C3 (and the previous one) feels like C3 Fall 2008 all over again.
