Tip: If you're using the wall-running purple triangles in your hack, remember to add tile 1EB (or a tile that acts like tile 1EB) underneath it. Extended object 44/45 will include this tile for you.Not logged in.
SMB3 overrated

now, before you come at me with pitchforks and torches, hear me out.

what i meant was, are SMB3 GFX, music, pretty much anything, overrated in a SMW hack, cause I know im tired of seeing SMB3 GFX in hacks, if I had to name one:

Bowsers Valley

now, this IS a good hack, however, its seems revolved in SMB3, the only thing i liked SMB3 that was put in an smw hack was the screen scrolling pipes, but even those were in SML2 before that (correct me if im wrong)

I say that hackers should be a little more original than this, stop living in the past, SMB3 was great, but we dont need to beat the shit out of it.
It's OK to use SOME SMB3, like a whole one world, but don't go overboard. Just because it's the fourth best selling videogame of all time (and the first-place not bundled with its respective console) doesn't mean it's OK to do entire SMW hacks with only SMW and SMB3 content. Look at Super Demo World, it had a Donkey Kong Country background!

What do you have against SMB3 styled hacks?
My hack is SMB3 styled too, but that doesnt mean I am overusing it. It's just an oppinion, you can't really argue with that.

If people like SMB3 and want to use the graphics in their hacks, let them do it.

No one forces you to play these hacks.
SMB3 has better enemies by a large margin.
What do you have against SMB3 graphics? I think they look nice.

Yes, you could say I like Osaka.
I'm glad that someone agrees with me.

I'm honestly tired of SMB3 graphics and such. The music is better than SMW's, but that's pretty much the only thing I'll give it.

Come on guys, be a bit more original.
fuck yeah meowingtons

SMW hacking isn't really about being 'original'. Creative, yes, but not original. In fact I'd go so far as to say that people use SMB3 graphics/blocks because they always wanted to make levels for that game, and also because of nostalgia associated with it.

Of course there's room for originality, for the more outstanding hackers and those with ASM and graphic design/art knowledge, but personally I think people will just use what pleases them, which is going to mean a lot of SMB3 styled hacks.

What does the Mario franchise teach us? If we find money laying around, we should take it. If we encounter wildlife getting in our way, we should feed it alive to a pet dinasour or failing that, crush it with our body weight. Oh yeah, and save the princess.
Yes, people need to stop overusing SMB3. It's a good game and all, and I like some of the stuff used in SMW, but there's two things I absolutely HATE about it: The graphics and any music other than the airship tune. And it's not because they're overused in SMW hacks, I just never liked them in the first place!

--------------------
Good fucking bye.
I don't mind SMB3 Graphics, and Sprites and enemies and the like, I just really don't like most of the music that much. Since a lot of the SMB3 music in my opinion gets old fast, and a fair few SMB3 styled Mario hacks abuse the tunes to death, the music becomes very tiresome. However if the hack has other sets of music and stuff I won't mind as much. However, a variation of Graphics, Sprites and Enemies would also be good too.

I have to agree.
Yes, noone is making us play these hacks, but it is annoying to see a big bunch of hacks that use the same graphics and music.
I never liked that game as much as SMW.

Actually SML2 is newer than SMB3 and SMW.

But I agree 100%

I would say about 65% of the hacks i've seen so far are SMB3 styled.

If I wanted a SMB3 base hack I would of played an SMB3 hack not an SMW hack.

--------------------
Why do you care about SMB3 graphics being used in a hack? That's pretty much complaining about SMW's GFX being used in original SMW.

Everyone have different tastes and I doubt you can change that fact. Heck, even my very first hack revolved around SMB3-styleness. And I recall nobody complaining about it.

--------------------
My blog. I could post stuff now and then
In all honesty, the GFX style in SMB3 doesn't impress me that much. SMW by far has a better graphical style, but hacks that utilize SMB3 graphics don't bother me.

However... I think the music in SMB3 is pretty good and it's nice to see hacks that use some of the tracks from this game.
Is This accepted. I'm trying to make so much better than Pac's hack, I didn't like how it did have Yoshi Island BG. Also, it didn't have the SMB.3 feel to it.
I think SMAS Mario 3 graphics looks better than Mario World.

But I do think Mario World has far better music. Mario 3 music gets repetitive very quickly.
You know what grates in my nerves? SMW graphics. Soooo overused.

Not to toot my own horn here, but smb3 had completely different themes for each environment. SMW had remixes of the same melody for every level. The only music different was the music on the overworld. I personally don't mind smb3 gfx in a hack, as long as the gfx style is executed properly and gives it a smb3 feel. I personally can't decide between smb3 and smw, and thus, it's a nice treat to play levels with mixed elements.

To be honest, I actually agree on this. I am already tired of seeing SMB3 graphics. And playing SMB3 styled hacks as well. I never did like the style of SMB3. But I only liked it because of the level design and what not. And I see you guys just re-live the past, C'mon! Give us some new creative ideas! There is no need to create SMB3 again, If we already have it. Sersously, SMB3 is way overrated in SMW hacks, and probably people should work on more creative hacks then just SMB3 styled hacks.Nothing to put here at the time being.
Thanks to Tom Servo for the awesome new layout!
I loved the SMB3 Castle graphics, and some of the enemies/effects. I'm going to use them in my upcoming hack, but that is as far as i'll go. the rest of it mostly sucks.

Well, I personally quite dislike the Mario GFX in the All Stars set. I do however find the block and sprite GFX to be very tasteful. I like it alot when ExGFX doesnt go over the top complicated.

I made a standalone game once, look for Seabug Stampede on Google Play.
