That's completely up to you. You can do anything you want, as long as the gimmick has something to do with "Switch".


so it's ok even if there's just a few switches?

I get it now

It's ok and probably better if you have zero P-switches. The majority of the points of this contest come from interpreting the theme in an interesting way and creating a level that stays true to that theme. Think outside the box.

Consider the following themes:
P-Switch - probably lame but a good level could make it good enough.
Light-switch sprite - more unique and probably easier to make a fun level.
Weather Switching (done by Kiseki) - pretty good theme there!
switch: (Noun): hairpiece consisting of a tress of false hair; used by women to give shape to a coiffure - ehhhh probably going too far with that one....

Im not a judge though so I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is what the contest is really about.

How do i post my hack on the forum



--------------------



Okay, let me try to make this as easy as possible.
First off, make an IPS patch of your hack by using Lunar IPS.
Then, upload the IPS file to My Files in the menu.
Then give us the link to the file, by right clicking on the file, going to 'Copy Link Address', and then pasting the link in a post here.

Also, try not ask so many questions... people don't really appreciate you flooding the thread with one line questions.
There's always the F.A.Q. and SMWiki for all your other questions.

So, do you guys judge it all at once, or do you judge the levels as there submitted?

Whenever we feel like it, actually. We could wait until the deadline has been reached, or we could do some as they come along. Depends on the person, I guess. Me, I'm waiting until the deadline gets here.

Question:

Will adding sprites or blocks that don't actually have to do with the gimmick subtract from our score?

They're ASM, so most likely. But only for the ASMless Bonus- everything else won't be affected solely by the use of the custom stuff.

Ok just one last question for sure. Does it matter if the pallete on the title screen is a little messed up?

No, absolutely not. We only judge the level itself, nothing more.

Well, I probably shouldn't have panicked about time limits, as I made a couple of important errors. (7zip = suck)
The errors were fixed, and now here is the actual PLAYABLE version.
P-Switch Forecast
You use Warp Pipes to SWITCH the level from a desert and a tundra and vice versa, but just to be safe, I put some P-Switch puzzles in.
oh god don't shoot me

EDIT: (At the below post)
The weather part is the gimmick, as you SWITCH weather. (Switch = Change)
The P-Switches were just part of the level.

Hold on. Are you saying that you have TWO main gimmicks in your level? If not, which one's the main one? The other will not be counted in any of the gimmick scores at all. Remember, you've got over 40 days to finish your level- don't rush it, take your time!

Question - Does the OW/Title Screen/Level Name HAVE to be changed?
Will we be judged on any of them?

Hope you like it. :D

=/ I can't be an entrant anymore. I lost my SD card, which has EVERYTHING I need to ROMHack, except a few blocks, tools and about 2000 SMW ROMS. I needed a palette, some blocks and sprites, and most importantly everything in it.

I will become alive again sometime soon.
Here's my entry:
