Yeah, I think it's their shadow. It has no light outline as the trees do. All I need to do now is finish Goonie Hills, 1-1 and 1-5 then it's demo time! I don't think May 15th is correct though- it will probably be end of this month. The second demo (world 2 will be a long time away though- unless you learn 64x64 sprites). I'm sure there is a tutorial somewhere... Shall I find you one Jerry?

i'd love to know how to make 64x64. i'll search for myself too :P



I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.

I've PM'd SNN. Maybe he'll know. Then you could make Smiliax for world 2 and Bowser etc. #w{:>}

Is this an improvment? Any Comments?#w{=P}


3. Not too impressive, but not all that boring.
and what do you guys mean 64x64?

The map is a improvement, but it seems a little plain.

The hack has a great YI feel to it. It is looking like a really good hack. Good work, all the people that worked on it.
oh 64x64 sprites. I can make that for you guys if you want.

Ok, let me clear something up here Ixtab- I did not make the GFX- WhiteYoshiEgg did. And how can it be boring- it's a map? But ok, if you wanna help- welcome to my hack! You get a special userbar if you are helping with this hack. Don't suppose you can make a 64x64 Megasmiliax boss can you?
the hack just seems borng to me. I don't really have a reason; what's fun for some is not for others.

anyway, I'm still working on that port but send me the details of the boss in a pm or post here.

WOW! Never was expecting a rude comment like that in ages! BTW if you think it's so dull and boring- why bother posting on this thread?! #w{x(}
If I see a hack I think is boring or I don't like- there is a simple solution. Don't post on it.
And by 'fun for some' do you mean everyone on this thread? I've hardly had any critisism yet (except for that)- everyone on this thread so far likes it.
All I'm suggesting is that your work is medicore and that all the positive criticism you've been getting is possibly only becuase you are a newer user. I've seen some absolute shit hacks get "positive" review merely because it the person's first hack. I couldn't care less what hack number it is; whether you've been hacking for years or days, if I see soemthing I don't like for whatever reason I have, I'm going to say it. I'm not one to not tell the truth at the expense of someone's feelings. Being "rude" as you say is a relative notation, that I for one am offended you would say to me. I post in this thread because I would like to help you. If you don't want help then lock your thread and keep it for yourself, because isn't that the sole purpose of making a thread? Asking for advice and what not? Soley having positive criticism doesn't allow any room for growth. To be fiar, I haven't given you my reason for why I believe your work is terribly bland, but I guess I'll go ahead before Kristian (the cutey) comes in with his whole "if you don't have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all". So let's begin.


Bland. Even you can't deny that. The randomly placed decorations do nothing to help the YI feel you're going for. The catsles-- two images the highly contrast the rest of the map. Being detailed is a nice point but they contrast the rest of the map too much. The before image atleast had a bit of coor to it which YI is known for. I'm glad you decided to change it because that map was even worse. I won't get into that though since you've already changed it (but I will if you'd like me to).

monkey boss

You've got a pretty interest theme going which is ruined by the boss. not only is it anticlimatic and unoriginal, it's also too easy. I would get some better quality graphics, and spice him up a bit. rolling barrels? Really now. Have some bounce at variable heights, some on fire maybe (donkey kong much?). It is a monkey after all, why no climbing or jumping on its own part? You could have done a lot more than just makinh him spawn barrels at a faster pace.


Oh look a goomba replacement and a background I've seen in over 100 hacks. Very original. Also a messed up palette for the status bar, I guess you were trying to go for that. Anyway, your other screens just seem on uninteresting. I'm not giving you the port, making sprites for you or helping you in any way. I would hope you wanted to make a good hak and maybe some day you will. If you keep this up though, I'll just never realize it. Have a nice day.

You know you're being a little to harsh on him right? It's his first hack, give him some credit. I know that some things could be changed for the better but the guy's doing well for his first SMW hack. Plus, you learn by experience, and he is still getting into it. He'll learn from his previous hack mistakes and prosper probably.

If I was you, I'd tell what you said to Koopinator to the hacks that really deserve it. Example hacks from first time smw hackers that have bad palettes, very bad flat level design, and unfairness, as seen in the hack moderation thread. Koopinator's hack has not that much flat level design, it's got good palettes, it's fair, it's everything you'd want from a first time smw hacker.

Also, the monkey boss was made by Jerry so if you got any problems with that talk to him. Only problem I see with it is how it doesn't face Mario all the time. Oh and anyone who has any mind about YI Beta knows the GFX is from the beta Yoshi Island, aka unused sprite. #w{=9}



Check out my hack HERE!
Ixtab- I find this insulting, the 'positives' are NOT because I'm new, because on my fist week my hacks were critisised so much that I had them deleted- and just NOW when I thought I'd made something good-you had to come and ruin it. As I closed the other hacks- this one is going the same way. Never before have I been so insulted! #w{:<}#w{>=(}#w{x(}
I feel you are picking on me because I'm a new user-this sh*t ends now- before I take futher action-
First of all, I'm curious to know what sort of "further action" you could take here Koopinator. Are you going to report him to the authorities, or what? There isn't really much you can do after contacting the staff on a website like this.

Secondly, Ixtab, there are two kinds of criticism really. Before you go and call everyone "cutesy" or "too nice" or whatever the hell you're talking about, you should think about what you're saying. It's one thing to actually offer criticism and improvement tips, but you don't need to totally ridicule the person at the same time (and before you storm off and accuse me of being the "too nice" kind - keep in mind that I rarely offer anything to people besides words of improvement, so you're barking up the wrong tree). In a nutshell though, your criticism is great and all, but it could really do without the bashing and such.

Thanks. Let's get this thread back on track.
Obviously this is late, but I thought I might mention it anyway. I am simply in love with that cloud section you showed at the end of the trailer video. The music and graphics work together so well, it really does make me wanna play your hack. Good work.


Don't let Ixtab make you quit, Koopinator.

Who knows when I'll have
something to put here.


Credits go to Counterfeit for the bitchin' post layout.

Occording to what he told me.

Decided I'm not letting Ixtab get to me. BTW is it true that the good commetns are because I'm new? Does anyone else think it's mediocre?
Anyways, a vid of the first fort.

I'm gonna add one of those ball and chain things from yoshi's island too. It's dynamic. Comments?
oh, I'm now taking video requests. So, if you want me to make a vid of any level in world 1- PM me. Also, in every castle there is a hidden bonus room. In this fort there is a bonus room with enemies (to defeat and earn points). IK it's a short level- but it is world 1. I'm thinking about making Burts from YI for DK or Megasmiliax's castle/fort.

No. Not at all. I would treat your work the same if you have been hacking for many years.

Nice fort level BTW. This is turning out to be a very a good ROM hack.

Thanks! And I never mentioned this, but before I joined SMWC I've hacked SMW for about a year. Just never found time to upload stuff. This hack will get better BTW- especially when Jerry makes Smiliax and Bowser (I think he's mastered 64x64 sprites now) so demo 2 may be sooner than I thought. Oh, on page 2 (I think) how's my YI bob omb sprite looking?
I think the bomb omb looks fine, because that was the unused bomb omb graphics for SMW2. Yeah the graphics look good in my opinion.
