SMW2+3: The Essence Star: Release Party!

Link Thread Closed




*Taps fork on glass three times*

May I have everyone's attention, please? It is my-


I don't mean to be rude, Golden Yoshi, but can we make this gathering quick? Francine said she'd make me sleep on the couch if I got home too late.


I'll do my best. As I was saying, it is my pleasure to announce that we as a team, have stuck together, combined all of our efforts, and have now completed SMW2+3: The Essence Star in its entirety! The hack is now ready for release!


Wow, amazing! I am so proud of each and every one of you.


Yeah! We all did such an amazing job. We all definitely need to give each other a pat on the back.


I had such a fabulous time working with all of you!

This constant butt-kissing is putting a knot in my stomach, but I will ignore it knowing that I will soon be liberated from your blissfully moronic drones for good.


You've had a negative attitude since the beginning. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you- except you, Roth.

Wow, what a surprise. Someone call an ambulance, I think I'm going to pass out from shock.


Mario, as the main star of this hack, would you like to say a few words?


Okey dokey.

*Steps up to podium*

Mama mia!


My thoughts exactly! Alright, I would now like to take the opportunity to thank a few special people outside of our main team who have been a great help to the hack. It just wouldn't be possible without you guys!

Romi- Truly an amazing person all-around. Not only is Romi a very talented and intelligent person, but he has shown so much generosity and kindness in his endless help with this hack. A very dependable person who is always willing to help others, his tremendous work and effort on this hack, everything from the superb cutscene system to his constant ASM assistance, will be eternally remembered. You are an awesome person, thank you for everything!

S.N.N.- Yes yes! S.N.N. has been an inspiration for this hack from the very beginning. I had a vision for this hack, and I would have never come up with it if it weren't for looking at other amazing hacks, such as S.N.N.'s, for inspiration. Not only that, but S.N.N. has also eased me into learning ASM, by giving me great tips. I ran to him whenever I had an ASM problem, and he was able to find a solution. If it weren't for him, I would've thrown my computer across the room. A constant encouragement, S.N.N. has tested the hack and given great feedback, and has lent his musical talents to the project as well. I am very pleased you had the honor of seeing this hack turn from a basic idea into the final product it is now. Thank you so much, your inspiration has been encouraging beyond words!

Foursword4- Foursword4 is yet another awesome, caring person. He is the one person who knew this hack in and out. I had quite an enjoyable night revealing the entire storyline to him, which was a very satisfying experience. Any updates I had on the hack at all, I was eager to show him, as I knew he would ALWAYS have an intelligent, kind thing to say about it, and would show constant interest. Foursword4 has always proved to a modest, kind person that provides encouragement to all, as he has with me. Please keep a lookout for his upcoming hacks as well! Thank you for all you have done for me!

Kc- Kc has been the go-to-guy! Whenever I needed someone to test the hack at any point, he did it gladly and very quickly! Without him, this hack would not have ran as smoothly. Just a really cool, down-to-earth guy as well. Thanks so much, pal!

Broozer- This fellow has given endless support to this hack from the very beginning. He always has a kind word for everyone, which has been very encouraging in completing this project. He is quite a talented person as well, but not in the least selfish, as he shared his artistic talents by drawing a few Roth!

Whoop dee doo.


Thank you all! I am so proud of what we have accomplished! Please feel free to help yourself to the open bar. And don't forget to pick up your own copy of SMW2+3: The Essence Star on your way out!

Yes... Yes... YES!!!
Good fucking bye.

Now I have something FUN to do tonight. I don't even have to play the hack to know that it's going to be awesome... but seriously, it better not let me down -_-

I wonder what kind of hack you're making next...
Wow!!! Congratulations on completing your hack!
I loved the 1st demo so I'm gonna try this out.
Famntsatic praty *hic* I enyjoed it vrey much!!1.

/Me downs an anti drunk potion.

Very very great job on the hack overall Steven! I have enjoyed every minute of testing and throughout the whole time you have also helped me many, many times with my ASM stuff, I just wanted to give a massive thanks to you for that.

Anyway, I gotta say that this is one of the most well thought-out hack I have ever played, the story within the game is fantastic and really gives the player much, much more to follow, rather than a run of the mill, level 1, jump over a few pipes, fire a few fire balls etc.

The levels are built up with amazing precision, down to the last sprite, and also in a way of making the player think 'Hmm, I wonder what's down there, I'll come back to it later' and when you do go back, you realise that you need to collect something later on in the game to find out why it is there.

The original bosses, storyline, levels.. everything down to the last coin has been thoroughly thought out and I congratulate you on that, Awesome job man!

This is one of the most enjoyable hacks I have played in a very long time. You definalty deserve a 10/10.

YES. I love you. I haven't played this yet, but I honestly can't wait. Unfortunately, I have one important thing to do before I can try this out. I'll be sure to review this once I finish it!
I just played this and WOW. Youve put a very good deal of work into this hack and I thnk it's amazing.
...You just made my day.

I've only been through a few levels so far, but it is fantastic. Expect a complete, full review when I'm done.
What can I say? I really don't think there is a hack better than this one out there anymore. It really just feels .. perfect. The difficulty level is solid all-around, the level design is great, the side quests and mini-games are here in tremendous amounts (read: tremendous) and the graphics/extra stuff just fits perfectly.

I won't write a full-blown review here (I'll be saving that for the "reviews" section of the hack itself) but I will say it has been an honour to watch this hack grow. It has also been an honour helping out with this.

Perfect friggin' time for the down button to screw up, keyboard. Perfect friggin' time. :(

I can still play this hack, but Mario keeps on crouching, and it's hard to make savestates with Snes9x Mac with the keyboard like this.

Also, I've only played a few levels, but it's amazing.
Good fucking bye.
YES!! no more sleepness nights!!
Anyway, i think its really great that you finally finished this hack, and that nothing bad really happened to it.

So, kudos to you Steven.
Nice! I didn't get around to playing the last demo, actually, but from what I've heard people say, it sounds like I'll definitely be enjoying it.

...Oh, and that post was great. :)

Yup...I thought I'd keep up the same trend as my C3 threads. ;)
Yay! I luv this game!
you can have a cookie if you guess one of the songs in my profile via PM

YES!!!!!! OMG I Always wanted to play the final version thank you!!! Now I can do something tonight!!!!Nothing to put here at the time being.
Thanks to Tom Servo for the awesome new layout!
YES! I am SO excited that you are finally finished with the entire hack! Congratulations! :D I haven't started playing it yet, but from what I've seen from the last demo and some of the stuff you've shown in your thread, I know that this will be a great hack! Once I finish playing through the entire thing, I'll write a full review of this hack. I'm going to start playing this right away! ^_^

*has a few beers and goes off to play the game*
All right! I played the demo and consider it my favorite hack, so I am very excited to play the full version. I really enjoyed the story, the minigames, the characters, everything. I'm not sure my computer can handle this much creativity; I think it just might crash...


I'm working on a hack! Check it out here.
