Ok I have a thread of my SMW hack of a remake of SMB1. Currently at Beta 2 (Available on this site soon). Here you can request different music, changes to the Levels/OW/etc., and more. However there is only a few things you can request (I will post another thread for why).
Things you can request:
Different Music/New Music
A new intro
Some extra warps
Different Graphics (Not Custom)
Change of Background
A Custom OW
Different OW Music (Not Custom)
Different Level Names (Rarely Done)
Thing you can Not Request:
Custom OW Music (in other thread)
Custom ExGFX (in other thread)
Custom Sprites (in other thread)
I can't say I support this idea. Too many remakes as it is.
If SMB1 ever gets remade, it better be remade by Nintendo themselves.
But since you'll want to make this anyway, I guess I'll just go right ahead and say what everyone else was thinking: Remember to have screenshots and some progress BEFORE you make the hack thread. It's not a work in progress if it's not... well, actually a work in progress.
Hey, I'm Riot. I used to use this website a lot but it has been quite a while since I've been a part of it. Help me out with any of the changes; it'd be much appreciated.
Yep, remakes have been done to death. I wouldn't be surprised if SMWC is reluctant to accept them these days. May I suggest making an entirely new chocolate hack with SMB1 graphics or other retro-inspired graphics?
Yea unless you are doing a 3D to 2D remake or an obscure game, (Special already done) remakes of old Marios really get redundant and not many people will want to play it. No offense though if you still want to that's fine but just don't expect as a warm of an acceptation as an original hack.
-------------------- Your layout has been removed.
if you want to make an SMB1 Remake, you have to ripp all graphics from SMB1, it's so easy with the new Lunar Magic 1.90. Just make an ExGFX file, insert, and open zsnes, play to the level that has the pallet of the lvel you want, and then use LM1.90 to Clip and paste.

I'm the kind of person who isn't opposed to remakes/remixes; look at Nintendo -- they remake things to death these days, so why can't the fans?
However, you need to be able to show your progress with this before starting a thread. I am closing this for now. PM one of the moderators to have it reopened or start a new thread for your project when you have screenshots available.
Also -- this thread was open for a month. I can't believe it wasn't closed already.
