C3 Winter 2022 - Results! 🍬

C3 is now over. Sad times, huh? My name is idol.

It's not. It's also not "Mr. Switchy", "Mr. Witchy", and I have nothing to do with those persons mentioned. If you're told otherwise, they're lying.

Let's get on with the awards show. No further questions.

3rd4Deeke

1UPdudes strikes yet again, claiming that sweet first place in Best Feedback. Is that because his name always appears at the top when voting in that category and you cba to scroll down? Or is his feedback just that good, huh? And let's not forget both Veck and Deeke who our the runners-up here - not a patch on how many votes 17UPdudes got, though!

And if ASM isn't hard enough, these guys have even bigger heads for bigger brains and make tools. If they were really smart enough, they could find a way to store their big brains on a USB stick instead of making dumb Mario tools. That's what I'd do.

We did this last time for our Honorary Mentions; and it worked well. So, we did it again! This time, there was a big big tie in first place once we filtered out everyone else who already won stuff. Good job!



Well, that's all from me. However, I've been told The Magician has a few words to add after I've posted this. So, keep on reading. It's about time we found out about Mr. Switchy, hey?
Order! Order in the court! My dear SMW Centralians. As you may be aware, Chester has accused a fellow user, Mr. Switchy, of running an illegal gambling ring across the Halloween period on our Discord server. Over the events of C3, you were tasked with helping the court to find evidence to either bring Mr. Switchy to justice, or prove him innocent.

System, as the defence attorney for Mr. Switchy, was clear from the beginning that there was no evidence that Mr. Switchy was guilty, or that there were any gambling antics over Halloween.

Chester, on the other hand, was adamant that the evidence could be found amongst the C3 forum that there was, in fact, an illegal gambling ring!


Well, well, well. Chester presented the evidence to me. However...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

... Upon presenting this "evidence", there was none. No candy wrappers were presented as evidence. Therefore, i have no choice but to declare that...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

Mr. Switchy is INNOCENT!



Mr. Switchy, I apologise for the huge upset this may have caused you, being accused of such heinous and felonious crimes by Chester.

Chester, it was a valiant effort, my friend. However, the evidence to convict Mr. Switchy just simply wasn't there.



For your efforts, SMW Centralians, I award you with these trophies.


Awarded to those who helped Chester find the evidence.


Awarded to those who were accused of the crimes, as a sign you are now innocent.



Case closed.
It's very flattering to see that I got tied for 1st place in the Honorary Mention category!! It puts a big, dumb smile on my face.
Congratulations to everyone who got 1st, 2nd or 3rd in any category! Hope to see you all next C3.

Hello. I'm Hatsune Blake. I do mostly SMBX stuff, but I am interested in learning Lunar Magic.
You can find my SMBX account here.
Have a good day!
Another excellent C3 showing! The winter ones tend to be a bit smaller, but there was still a whole lot of great threads this year. (By default, any C3 that has VWF advancements is a good one, too)

Glad to win a couple of trophies too, even though they're certainly not what I expected - but still, very glad to see Maarfy could also snag one!

Currently working on Æther: The Infinite Library!

Other Submissions of mine!
So, was Mr. Switchy's copy of SMW perfectly legal? That's nice to know.
I will say, I didn't quite expect to get any trophy, considering I had expected a bit more feedback. But the fact that I not only have gotten an ASM trophy but also one for Biggest Game Changer is something, at least.

And of course, a lot of winners have their prize deserved, particularly Extra Mario World.

Must've been pretty embarrassing to show up to the courtroom with... Nothing. #smrpg{:D}

Also, dang, didn't expect a trophy this C3, thanks a bunch for that! #smrpg{y}

I'm really liking the "find the item among the sea of C3 threads" theme we have going on recently, I wonder what the next thing will be...

Either way, this was very fun! Congrats to the winners and thanks to the staff team for organizing this! (Oh, and Tahixham =P) #smrpg{<3}
Lots of love, S1Z2 <3

Massive thanks to Giga for making the layout!
But...but...that's impossible! I know it was there, I saw it with my own eyes! I demand a recount!

System....Mr. Switchy....I won't forget this!
Chester is guilty as charged lock him up #smrpg{cool}


You are challenged by Champion Daisy!

LAYOUT FOOTER:
My congratulations to my fellow Addmusic utensil, AddmusicFR! I actually threw in my hat towards your tool as far as my voting support goes as a customary gesture. Yours is probably earlier in development than my own fork, but I can clearly tell you're trying your utmost to overhaul the Addmusic experience (even at the cost of using a completely different source game codebase, except that it's still a mod of N-SPC at its core). I actually think I might be able to further help you out if you want your SFX format to outright match the music's for an easier experience for all. Plus, don't forget to bring out a forum thread once it's further in development!

I'll accept my own bronze as a consolation prize. This is actually really interesting in that my ongoing project has won a C3 trophy three times in a row now.

I've got a couple of things left and then I think I can actually get my release candidate out the door into the submission section at the absolute least, then I can iron out any quirks in the long run.

Oh, and as for the candy? ...I didn't take any. Someone else must have taken the vast majority, if not all of them first, and thus caused Chester to spin three Boos on the slot machine.
#smrpg{:P} #smrpg{:P} #smrpg{:P}

I don't have any further knowledge of this, as I bankrupted myself at the end, and mostly didn't gamble a lot of candy in the first place.
Yoshiatom's Post
A digusting miscarriage of justice happened today. Everyone knows Mr. Switchy and his cohorts are criminals, and are even openly boasting about their rankings in his crime ring. But thanks to the the Magician's corrupt court, Switchy has gotten away scot-free and has made an embarressment of a beloved SMWC memeber. I held some evidence with my very own hands and yet it's mysteriously vanished on the day of the verdict! I'm in the firm belief that the Magician used magic to warp all the wrappers away and then pretend they never existed. After all, anyone who's played Rayman Origins knows someone called "The Magician" can't be trusted.

I'm not going to forget about this. Vigilantism may be looked down upon, but if I ever see Mr. Switchy's face again, I'm going to make sure his switch gets pushed down hard, and make sure his progress won't be saved afterwards.

Of course the one time I actually get a trophy just so happens to be the one where I literally just share a bunch of unreleased MP3s on my Dropbox and merely tease a potential release of something with them, and they're not even the main thing I'm most known for around here #wario{-_-?}

Jokes aside tho, this was certainly not something I was particularly expecting, but it was definitely nice to see honestly; I guess now I pretty much have to drop that album at some point haha

Looks like Rester slept in his job. Hahahahahaha. You only fooled yourself, Pester. #smrpg{:D}

Anyway, I'm very glad for the two trophies. Wasn't expecting a silver trophy at best finished Standard hack, but I take it. Also, wow, thanks for the gold trophy at graphics, I really appreciate it. #smrpg{:3}
Congratulations to all participants, especially trophy winners.

I'm just sad that my thread didn't win anything, but that's part of life. Shoutouts to the Czar threads, these deserved the trophies hard.

Congrats, sweeties!
Fanatical like a Demon
Ngl, I actually felt a bit sad bc there was hardly any activity in my thread and this version actually had more work than v1 and v2 put together since it was mostly me doing the asm and just trying to get everything put together and fix a lot of bugs (and still am XD but I understand that the same project, even if progressing, 3x in a row is not something the same audience will care for) but wow I never thought in a million years for this C3 I'd get honorary mention. I mean it's 3 votes yeah but that's 3 people who thought of my hard work so thank you for the people that voted for me, it means a lot! Amazing job on everyone and it was nice to see people see everyone's work!

Even though, I wasn't active in this C3 compared to C3 Summer 2021. I still had fun participating C3 Winter 2022!!! Also, it's a relief to see that Mr. Switchy is innocent!! Even though, I was a candy scout. The best thing that came from C3 in my opinion was the brand new AddMusicFR!!!! I cannot wait for it to come in the tools section. Because, it has a lot of potential!!!! Anyways, congratulations to the trophy winners!!!
