Super Mario ๐“ฅ๐“ธ๐”‚๐“ช๐“ฐ๐“ฎ - Hack Thread *C3 Demo Available!*

Standard

For those who have seen my C3 demo I will make this short and sweet.
Super Mario ๐“ฅ๐“ธ๐”‚๐“ช๐“ฐ๐“ฎ is a hack I have been working on for about the past 9-10 months. I have learned a lot about SMW hacking on my journey so far, even participating in WLDC and miraculously making it to 7th place.

This is my first hack and I really wanted to start a thread for awhile now. I will be working on stages somewhat out of order but I will try and share progress here whenever I have anything cool to show. I may even post a few demos here in the process. Criticism is wanted whenever it can be given, even if its for something as small as a level name I want to have a healthy relationship with the SMW Central community. Every bit of interaction helps.

Expect, screenshots, videos, and frequent community interaction whenever I can. I hope to help everyone enjoy their day even if just by a little bit :)

Super Mario ๐“ฅ๐“ธ๐”‚๐“ช๐“ฐ๐“ฎ C3 Demo & Post
I will also be posting updates on the SMW Central Discord
The Hack Thread will be getting more thorough showcases and updates

God looks great! I love the photos and stuff! Another hack with potential going. I hope to know more about this. #smw{B)}
Your hack is amazing my man hope your journey is successful
this is nice hack
I haven't finished playing all the levels in the demo yet, but the aesthetics are absolutely on-point. Looking forward to more. #thp{=D}
Hello everyone, I haven't really updated this thread in awhile but I want everyone here to know that things are okay and I am still trying t churn out some fun levels in the meantime. Went through some creative struggles but bounced back after remembering that not everything has to be perfect instantly. I'm currently working on a level where the primary mechanic is the timed lifts (I might call them clock-platforms or something just know that this is what I'm talking about) Here are some screenshots for the level. I might even release a little video once the level is finished to commemorate my first Post-demo level! (Sorry for the low quality images, next time they'll be in better quality, I might have to mess with bsnes settings)
World 3-X I need a good level name

Explosive variants of the lifts, which will be pink/purple and various Bro's will be in here to shake things up!

That aesthetic looks quite nice, but damn I feel like it's really hard to read what's going on. That timed platform (and the koopas, their shells in particular) really blend in with the background. The fog is also quite distracting because it's so bright. I'd suggest brightening up the sprite palettes a bit so they stick out, at least, and perhaps lowering the saturation of the fog so it isn't so vibrant. Though, the fog might not be so distracting if it wasn't so similarly colored to the sprites. These qualms aside, I quite like it overall.
Really loving that title screen you have there. I'm a firm believer that a title screen that captivates players is essential for a successful hack, and your title screen did not fail to get my attention!

(Of course, level and overworld design is just as important for a hack.) #tb{:]}

Also, I understand creative struggles. When I used to make levels in the past, I sometimes experienced these creative blocks. Whether it was developing ideas/gimmicks for a level, trying out different sprite combinations, or figuring out how to name a specific level; you name it, I've had them.

Really want to see how this turns out!! #smrpg{y}
My Inspiring Quotes on Personal Growth and Change:

"Resolved financial/personal problems equal greater growth!"

"The only constant thing in life is change; nothing is set in stone. The old is replaced with the new. Forgive yourself for past mistakes. When many different problems in your life are resolved (personal, financial, etc.), newfound strength and confidence is gained in the process. Usually, failures, lack of assertiveness, disappointments, incompetence, low self-esteem and lack of self-respect, financial struggles, and setbacks can cause us to change and take action to solve any problem, leading to increased strength and confidence. This you learn from experience.

I have been experiencing this aforementioned newfound strength and confidence myself for the past FOUR to EIGHT years or so, getting stronger with each passing year, learning with each mistake I make and becoming more joyful in the process. Because of this newfound confidence I've acquired over the years, finding my passion is of utmost importance in 2022! You can develop this strength and confidence in yourself as well!"


To whoever's reading this, you are amazing and you are capable of doing equally amazing things. Gather confidence and be yourself! Say goodbye to the old you and welcome the new you! It wants to arise every moment, but you don't let it. Learn from your mistakes and never make that mistake again! Find your passion and live it!"

Finding my passion in life, but I may still be active on SMWCentral from time to time. Still enjoy playing many hacks, but I'm widening my perspective on life and opening myself to the new.
Thank you for those who see this. It's been awhile since I last posted here and irl responsibilities have gotten a little bit in the way, slowing down progress. However I finally have a new FINISHED stage to show you guys. Here are some screenshots and a video!

I need good level names, any suggestions?

Next time I'll prob make the images smaller, I forgot they appeared this big on SMW Central.

The stage uses the floating countdown platforms. However they have been taken over by fungus. Some can be quite dangerous and explosive so watch out! Parakoopas thrive down here and can get pretty nasty at times. Hammer Bros and Boomerang Bros also appear here, this will probably be their debut into the hack. I tried to capture a sort of 'bottom of the ocean' vibe in this stage. It is planned to be at the very bottom of the cave world. The video below showcases the first half of the stage. The rest will be shown in a future demo! I want to try and release one every for every 5-8 stages get finished.



With Autumn rolling around the corner the next stage might be another Autumn one, perhaps a cool evening breeze before the sinister winter.
