Tip: Never put Sprite 9B (Amazing Flying Hammer Brother) above lava. After being killed, it will still throw hammers until it sinks or goes off-screen.

Yeah. Those graphics are from the castle destruction scene. So it should be legal.

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.

I dunno... Seriously, I get to be a jerk sometimes when actual competition is involved... Trying to make a whole Rom Hack better than another whole Rom Hack is different. It's SORT of like competition, but you're not trying to "beat" the other hackers, you're just trying to make your own hack as good as it can possibly be.

This isn't the same, though... I realize the contest is meant to be all in good fun, but I've struggled with something all my life, and that is that I can't function in competitive atmosphere. I get to be a real dick, real cocky, when I win I throw it in everyone's face, and when I lose I get violent. This is the case even when there's nothing at stake. And to be honest, I love you guys at SMWC too much to risk that happening. So I'd much rather do something like help run the event, such as judging (not this time 'cause they have their judges), providing a reward, or something else. Either that or not have anything to do with the event, which will give me more time to work on my own hack, something I'm just as content with.

I'd like to hear SNN's take on what I just said, since I respect his opinion a lot and I think he'll have something very wise to say that wouldn't occur to me otherwise.

This isn't a promise, but... One of these days, once SMTI is finished, if people like it enough and I go down as one of the best SMW hackers (and that's quite an if, but people have told me it's plausible), I would consider hosting a level designing event of my own here at these forums, that is, if SNN is fine with it. That's a ways off, though. :)

I think fun in the community is the true reward :)

@Schwa: you can always ask to be assigned as a pre-judgment betatester. Since you don't want to be involved with your own level, you can truly help others out... just a suggestion.

--------------------
to anyone that downloaded Verdant FG: I've fixed it with the gameplay page and a readme, so get the fixed version.
Hey, I just got 1 question, any way I can make Magickoopa the way he looks like on the screen shot of Hunter's Revenge, becuase I dont like the way Magickoopa looks.

He will still ACT the same, just not look the same.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
NO CUSTOM MUSIC
NO EXGFX
NO ASM
LEVEL 105

There it is. I don't expect to win, but I think I did well considering I'm a n00b to SMW hacking.

No you can't. That's modifying graphics, which equals disqualification.
Me or Rastro FirePheonix?

We can modify graphics to combine tilesets and stuff as long as it is smw's graphics.
And it still can only be done with lunar magic anyways (8x8 editor).

I think he was talking to metalgearhunter.
Wait... Rastro?

Yeah, I was talking to metalgearhunter. And Troopa, that's what I meant. I'd hoped it was implied by now what graphics can be changed around.
Ok I have a new question. Can I make my level 105 have pipes, houses etc? Or no teleportions?

You can.

the level is the only thing judged, right? I changed Mario's colors and now the overworld, title screen and intro level are crappy. Just making sure.
The level will be the only thing judged. Anything else changed is just to add spiffy effects I guess.

@Schwa: If you want my honest opinion, here it is. It sounds like an attempt at bragging to be honest, as in "I know I am a good level designer (which you are) so I need to make it more known." Not saying you are, I'm just saying it sounds like that to me. If you want to, you could PM the winner of the contest too and see if they agree to it. If they do, by all means, make them a level.

10 days left in the contest - I will have to judge the latest couple of levels early tomorrow morning.
I suggest one of the Administrators would make a page for submitting for this contest, it would definitely organize things more than they already are (which is like total crap right now).
(to SNN) That's what I was afraid of... That wasn't my intent, but I had a feeling it would come across that way.

Well, that's fine, we don't need a prize or anything anyway... Just do me a favor; if you're hosting any more of these competitions in the future, consider letting me be a judge. It would make me so happy... :)

Good luck in the contest, everyone. Maybe once it's over I'll go through and play each entry and criticize it just for the heck of it. XD

Are we allowed to change the level dot to red if the level has a secret exit? And should we change the paths?

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


 
Is it against the rules to use the OW to let the ending of smw apply to level 105? For example: I beat level 105 and the ending will trigger, when i beat this level. Is it legal?
