Tutorial List (updated Jan 15 2014)

Link Thread Closed
Here is a list of tutorials that are found in this subforum, listing them by categories. The main purpose is so anyone requesting a new tutorial can check to see if it has been done already, since some people look over things. Me or some mod will probably update this for newer tutorials. Some placements of tutorials can be debatable, but I just placed them as I see fit. Do also note that some tutorials may be depreciated by newer version of Lunar Magic or anything else, so do pay attention when reading the tutorials. Feel free to inform me if I have missed any that are not for old Addmusic, I may have purposely left out a few due to them being not as good as others or incomplete.

This one looks promising. Stickying in hopes it'll become useful in a few days.
<blm> zsnes users are the flatearthers of emulation
Oh hell yeah, this is awesome. I was able to find what I was looking for without any complications, thanks!

That's very useful. I don't need now to look over the whole Tutorials forum to find a tutorial.
You need to remove the link to "making SMW a multiplayer game." It was trash'd.
I used to use this site a lot back in like, 2011. Hopefully you don't remember me.
I dug up this thread of mine about ExAnimation. It's clear and well illustrated, and I believe it would be very helpful for those who are new to ExAnimation. How about it?
Somebody should really update the list, and the thread title.

Now that there are a lot of new tutorials, and some being outdated/old, the list should really be updated.
