Random's Retarded Quest 1 Remake coming soon!
To a theatre near you
Hey there, everyone!
YES, I HAVE THE PERMISSION TO USE VIP'S GRAPHICS, AND RAOCOW'S GRAPHICS TOO. Please stop complaining about it, as I'm going to ignore you.
Anyone who doesn't know me already - It's-a me, Vanilla Pudding
I was the one (a very masochistic one - if I may add) that created 'Random's Retarded Quest', you may have played it already, you might have heard about it, but that's not the point.
Point is, I've been working on my second hack, the sequel of RRQ (the abbreviation, obviously) and I've finally decided to drop the project, as I'm not having fun hacking SMW anymore.
So I decided to release a demo, beta thingy so any of you who have some serious problems can play it (and possibly even enjoy it).
NOTE: Full credits in the .txt
Random's Retarded Quest
I started the project of random's retarded quest about 4 years ago inspired by VIP&WALL MIX 4, had a lot of people saying it was pretty good, some said it was bad, I ignored everyone and I made my own review about my own first hack and I thought to myself that it was somewhat bad - kind of average - which wasn't the point. Because what I wanted was to make an awesome hack.
The difficulty of the first hack is pretty hard - it's necessary to know some of the most popular SMW bugs, like double grabbing, It's totally possible without slowdown (I know because I've tested it all multiple times, obviously there might be a problem with sprite limitation if you don't do exactly what you're supposed to do.) It's a hack with rising difficulty and near the end it gets pretty crazy.
It's challenging and it's supposed to be played without slowdown with maybe the exception of the last level and another misc level too. (Those would be 'Shogun' and 'Solid 7 Seconds').
About them looks - it's pretty vanilla with VIP graphics, if there's a cuttoff or another that I forgot and any problems with the OW, I'm sorry cause I can't fix it anymore. (Also I didn't make the OW.)
The hack was accepted into SMWCentral's Kaizo hack list but I'm going to repost it here so you guys don't have to look around for it.
Here are some screenshots:

Random's Retarded Quest - The Sequel - Random Must Die BETA V0.08
This is the reason I made the thread, obviously.
It took me about one year and a half to get to this point in the hack.
As you can see, I was lazy as hell, but that didn't make the levels any worse or something. They are top-notch quality, I really think they're awesome not only in graphical terms but also in ideas and all that kinda stuff.
This hack has a few levels (Not a whole much). Every level is possible without slowdown with the exception of 'Test', as I couldn't play 'Test' without it.
The majority of the levels took DAYS to make - I tried to be as not-repetitive as much as I could (if you get what I mean), I used custom graphics, some made by me, some made by the Vip makers and some made by Raocow. I also selected the music properly as to fit the levels.
What was vanilla had all palettes changed so they would be prettier and stuff.
About the difficulty, it's pretty damn hard, and if you thought the first hack was difficult, then you're gonna alot of problems playing this! (In average, it took me 2 hours to test about every level, some even more.)
I had very few betatesters - I was pretty much alone testing all these levels - since they're very difficult. I had some help from SoulJester - but he was very busy so he didn't help me as much as I wanted him to. The only one that actually beta tested it all was me. I wanted this project to be bigger - I didn't have that many people working with me so it turned out to be pretty dull making pretty much any progress.
I don't think I've anything else to say, thanks to any one that helped
and I hope you all enjoy playing it as much as I did enjoy making it, as I made it all for you guys. A challenging hack with fancy graphics and cool music.
Here are some screenshots of the second hack:

NOTE: There is one level (the one without name), that's unfinished, by the way levels aren't in order of difficulty, you can go into any level freely as it's a beta overworld. I'm sorry for the simplicity!
If you want to check or preview some levels and stuff you can take a look at my youtube account where I uploaded various videos about the first and the second hack.
[Here you go]
Download it, play it, I hope you enjoy it.
Also, why are you still reading this? You crazy or somethin'?
I've added a Version History txt so you can now know which beta did what; you're supposed to open it with WordPad, by the way.
Thanks to Undefinied3 for playing the hack and reporting the bug so that I could fix it.
If you find any bugs whatsoever, send me a message or something and I'll fix it as soon as possible.
