Tip: Make sure that ALL exit-enabled pipes, doors, etc. have a screen exit defined, or they'll take you to Level 0, the "endless" bonus game. Unless Start+Select is enabled, the only way out of it is to reset the game.

Kind of an odd question, but are there any standard romhack streamers you know of? I know the Twitch scene is filled with Kaizo ones, but I don't hear much about streamers who mostly play standard hacks.

Amethyst streams standard hacks, since she is a hack moderator, and ultimately linkdeadx2 has been also streaming standard hacks these days, aside from moderating kaizo hacks.

Also, sometimes you can find Jolpengammler or lolyoshi streaming standard hacks, but I'm not sure if they have a schedule or something.
I personally am glad that there's not a lot. Standard hacks focus on more than game play. Some have story/cutscenes and secrets, puzzles- all sorts of things audiences might see as slow or boring, which is not good for views. Imagine playing a metroid inspired hack filled with confusing level layouts and hidden items, audiences and maybe even the streamer would drop the hack in an hour or two. Also there is length. Some of the longer hacks, like 60+ exit ones, would test patience... unless it is a collab.

Although this is mostly the case. There are hacks out there like Super Isikoro World or Bits and Pieces that are gameplay focused. There are probably a lot more I don't know of personally but they do exist. I wish more of the Kaizo streamers would give some of these hacks a shot too!

Ultimately though, the lack in variety in SMW Streams has depleted most interest I had in watching SMW on twitch. Everyone just streams the same few Kaizo hacks making the rounds at that time.

I don't think that many hacks are as story-driven as you mention, most of the ones I've seen are pretty platforming-focused. But admittedly I don't play that many.

But yeah, I can't think of many standard hack streamers, not any really other than Amethyst (I think BeeKaay also streams his moderations? But he hasn't in a bit). I'd say try browsing the Super Mario World section on Twitch and see if you find anything?
