Thanks for all the feedback, guys! Time to respond to it all.

so far it looks very good. I would like to play it soon. Just one question. When is your hack going to be released? I will be looking forward to it.
It will probably be quite some time. I still have to finish level 1-2, create levels 1-1, 1-3, and 1-4. I can't do those things until TheGamer finishes the tilesets for them. Also it won't take as long because on June 12, he'll be totally free to do this, so tilesets should come much faster. After I finish making the levels and have everything ready for a demo, I'll have to get it beta tested. When all the bugs are fixed, I'll submit it. So a demo would probably come out around late July or early August, if all goes well. There was a demo out last C3, but it was unfinished, had shitty graphics, and is no longer available.

To be honest, I really don't know how I've missed this. Thegamer produced such eligant graphics for this. I'm so impressed by this. I hope to see much more progress in the future from you. The level design could be improved though. Perhaps by adding more slopes etc.
I see what you mean. Unfortunately, making slopes and doing all kinds of fancy tricks with the grass is kind of confusing, given how detailed it is, but if I take my time, I'm sure I can figure it out.

Really liking the new graphics. They're a nice take on the old YI graphics. Familiar but new. I'd recommend keeping this kind of style throughout the game. If you change Yoshi's graphics, give them a familiar YI feel but don't make them direct rips. Maybe base them over.
But I insist you also do this with my area of romhacking 'proffesion'. Music. The YI music is all well and good but instead of using actual YI music I think it'd be much better if you instead used YI-esque music. Maybe kind of what Shnabubula did with his Alternate Reality Edition Music. Just a suggestion though...
I see what you mean. However, I don't know any music porter who would be willing to compose an entire soundtrack for me. I like your ports a lot, but I've only seen you make ports, and I know you don't really take requests. If someone comes along and offers to make music for the hack, then sure; if not, I'll stick with the YI soundtrack.
