Well, if I'd win, I'd give the prise to the one who ranked 2nd anyway. Getting the money all the way to my location is impossible.
I can't really do anything with $5 in the UK so I'd give it to someone from the US who comes in the Top 5.
Here's my hack.
Custom BG
Use of different Level Modes

Here it is!
Enjoy! Some levels are placeholders

your hack won't work the ips needs more kb
I'll join this, I just got a cool idea into my mind :>
Hell, I'll give it a shot. Not much to do the next couple days anyway.

I do have one question, however: While you're imposing a screen limit (00-09), would using 0A as a completely flat screen beyond the goal be acceptable to prevent Mario from walking against the edge of the screen? (I'd imagine not, but I'd like to know before I get started.)

(...And three posts in one month, let alone one day... or hour? What's gotten into me tonight?)

--------------------
I'm all over this. This is just what I need to get myself back into hacking: A small bit of encouragement in the form of cash, not a lot of hacking, and relative freedom.

One question, though: Would split paths count towards the screen count? By which I mean; say at the first two screens there is a split path and no way to cross between the two, and then they meet at the 10th screen. So there are 2 screens at the beginning, then you choose one of two paths, each of which are 7 screens long, then meet up at the 10th screen at the end. Would that be acceptable?

I think after I've done my tests this week that I will join in.
Normally I don't parcipate in non-official contests, but I find this one to be very interesting and well tought out.

Yes.

Doesn't layer 3 require you to load another GFX file tough?

10 Days Remain

Still plenty of time to enter!

Try not to over think or overdo your levels. This is called the “Short and Sweet” contest after all!

Also please test your patches I’m unlikely to check and see if they work until the contest is over and then It’ll be too late for you to update!


Now Questions...

It really doesn’t matter to me, but I’d suggest using level enders that don’t involve Mario walking to work around that problem.

Splits do count toward the screen count. What you described would be seen to me as 17 screens.

Well, you’re allowed 4 GFX files for tiles so it’d still be fine (BG/layer2 + FG/layer1 + layer 3 = 3 gfx files), unless I’m missing something about layer 3.
(I don’t use it that much)

Edit: Some trophies I drew up real quick (I may improve them some).



Strawberries are surprisingly hard to draw. Keep in mind that since this is an unofficial contest these will not be real badges or anything. They will, however, be a cool reminder of how you did in this contest.

Crap, guess I`d better update my entry. If anyone cares, I`m typing this on the Wii.

Very nice strawberries. I hope that this contest gets more than 4 entries.
Is there one more spot for judge? I would like to be a judge for this contest.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed...NOT! :D
It might be too much work to modify my entry to make it more linear (no or less split paths), so I might have to make a completely new level. I think I can probably do it before the 27th.

For anyone who still might be working on a level you might want to start wrapping it up! It’s not too late for others to join the party either. I’m confident someone could enter at the last minute and still take first place!

So don’t be shy and miss out on the chance to get a golden strawberry, 5 dollar
Amazon Gift Card, and bragging rights!

I just want to keep judge discussion outside of this thread, thanks.
