...of course you can. Levels without sprites would be pretty boring.
Or... what did you want to ask?

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


 
OK, here is the url to my ips patch:

Prison Escape.zip
This is a great idea now we can really see who has the greatest level design and without the things that seem to make SMW hacks so good these days...

I only have 9 days left though...

--------------------
I'm a rubberducky in the shape of a 2 ain't life grand!
Looking forward to NSMBWii, SMG2, Pokèmon HG/SS, Mario Forever 4.4 and Gran Turismo 5
Currently playing:
Mario Forever Advance, Mario Kart Wii, TSRPR
am i allowed to make the cement blocks square with lm?
As much as I'd love to say yes (because that's how I make my cement blocks...) I have to say no to making them square. They would be original SMW graphics and if we let even one graphical edit through, we'll be bombarded with other requests for modifying graphics.
Out of curiosity, I have a couple of questions.

One, how will judging be done? Does each judge individually look at each submission and grade them on the five categories? Or do all the judges discuss the submissions as a group and submit one score for the submission together?

Two, how will the results be posted? Just the scoring, for example? Or will judges add comments on each category? Or give a brief review of the submission?

I realize this may not have even been decided yet, but...like I said, I'm just curious.

Well, right now what's going on is the judges each create a .txt file for their judging. We rate out of 10 on each of those five categories. Then we total the overall score out of 50 by adding the points up for each category. As of now, I've been using comments but if we end up getting a swarm of levels, I'm not going to have time to comment each review.

As for the final results on who's level is the best, we haven't finished working it out.

I thought it uses your own custom ExGFX, no?
He said he was going to take out the GFX... >_>
Joshua from the third page: We haven't decided upon the reward yet, but basically, it will probably just be bragging rights and a small trophy. It is the Internet, after all.

To everyone else: You've got 11 days left for the contest! We have already judged the three levels submitted, so the quicker you submit the levels, the quicker we can judge, and the sooner the results will be posted after the contest closes!
Boo's Time Tower

Hope you enjoy it. It will probably be part of TLMB's team hack, so you'll see this level again if you decide to play it. It's short and sweet, but there's no midway point (won't work with the way the level is set up).
Just trying to make sure. Is this in it's current form completely legal?
You can't change the GFX, so unless you found those hidden somewhere within the ROM, that breaks the rules. You can only use Lunar Magic and SMW's original graphics. No hex, no ExGFX, no custom sprites/blocks, no changing the graphics within Lunar Magic with the 8x8 editor. You can change the Map16 and fuse tilesets with a tileset editor, but thats about it when it comes to manipulating the GFX.
Big Boo's Icy Mansion

My level is mainly puzzle-based. Not gonna show many screenshots, but here's one quick one.


As you can see, once you get through the cave at the start of the level, you'll find yourself outside the Ghost House- But the entrance is blocked. What you actually have to do is enter through the window and come out the main door, where you take the pipe to the basement.
Ok heres the Url to my hack http://www.mediafire.com/?5lmrkei2vdg
Actually DaKing's should be completely legal. Most of those gfx are pulled from the castle destruction sequence (castle 4 mainly) and there's nothing wrong with changing what gfx the chuck has. Clever idea there.

ah here we go. watch the end of this vid to see where he gets it:

I have an idea as of what to use for the prize, but I don't want to sound cocky by suggesting it. I'll suggest it anyway, though. How about I design one level for the winner's hack, which can be set to any guidelines the winner wishes? Since I'm not entering this contest with a level, I figure this would be a good way for me to still participate and feel good about my role. It's your call, though. :)

--------------------
It's me!!

High on life is the best high.
Well, the contest itself is the reward, isn't it? If enough people make submissions and put a lot of effort into their levels, then people will learn a lot about level design just by example. Which is why you should actually participate, Schwa.
