Mushroom Kingdom Meltdown 1 Revamped!

MKM1R sounds like an assault rifle. Anyway, here is the plan:
MKM1 currently has just under 9,700 downloads at the time of writing this, so a lot of people have played the game. However it probably doesn't have good feedback considering the massive quantity of slowdown within. So 3 years after releasing the game I've decided to redo the whole thing again. I need to replace the overworld and submaps (They weren't the best looking.) Redo some level layouts, add in 2-3 more stages, change the music, edit the story a little better and the huge overhaul: change most of the graphics.

It's a pretty huge project and it will take some time. However I have an interesting proposal for all of you! If you would like to contribute and have your name in the credits of MKM1R, you can help in the following ways:

Create custom graphics
Create custom music

I am currently using Lunar Magic v1.82 so everything created would have to be compatible with that. How come I'm not using a newer version? Because I'm comfortable with this one and it can still do some awesome things.

So if you'd like to contribute and want to submit graphics, you can create some of these:

Grasslands FG BG
Beach FG BG
Castle FG BG
Fortress FG BG
Ghost House FG BG
Desert FG BG
Bonus Room/Switch Palace FG BG
Underwater FG BG
Cave FG BG
Cloud Land FG BG
Temple FG BG
Futuristic City FG BG
Futuristic Airship FG BG
Apocalyptic Grasslands FG BG
Apocalyptic Castle FG BG

That table is not there so people can claim a section. That just simply shows what I need. If a section is scratched out, then I already have what I want. I'll update the table regularly so someone doesn't make something I don't need. If someone submits say a grassland FG, and I don't scratch it out on the table, that doesn't mean I didn't use it. It means I still need more since it would be boring having only one set of grass throughout the entire game. I won't accept graphics that are poorly drawn though... Make sure to include the necessary files! (ExGFXxx, Palette, Map16Page, Map16PageG) and make sure you have a sample level for BG's.

As for music, it's not as big a priority as graphics, but if you want to compose a new track go right ahead. Don't include any music banks though.

Once you have something done, place it in your file bin and either PM the link of it to me or put the link in the thread here describing what it is.
EI: Grassland, FG

This isn't really a team hack since I'm not recruiting anyone to do anything specific. This is a contribute whatever you can/want as much as you want. Only 5 people might help, maybe 50 (doubtful).

Actually remember at the top when I said I needed to redo the submaps and overworld? That's actually already been done. I'm saving the levels for last for obvious reasons. Here's some screenies:

The level names haven't been changed yet.

Well I guess that should do it. I really appreciate any help I receive and look forward to completing this! Remember, if you want to contribute any custom graphics just check the chart!

Those are really cool OWs cyphermar9t, I never played this game but the OW's are awesome!

The OWs remind me of Vip Mario 5 for some reason =P

Want progress on 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Go here to see.

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.

Yay! I'll support your hack since I played the original MKM.

Thinking about making a Rainbow Magic thread at the Media forum.
Dude, loving your sub-maps, great work there! Did you make those graphics by yourself? If so awesome job with that as well =)

Haha, me too! :D

Great Submaps, well Done! #w{<3}

By the Way: My English isn't really the best, but I'll try to express myself as clearly as possible. ^^"
That's great to hear about a remake. MKM had a few things which ruined it overall rate. One of it was that huge slowdown all the way...
If only chainfire9001's videos were not taken down...we could watch them and identify what parts need to be revamped. This hack had excellent potential!

don't click this link...
I'd like to offer my services as a music composer for this project, and I already have a few songs lined up for such an occasion (my aforementioned "project" mentioned on IRC).

Check this post again for some links...

Edit: Level up!

Moar edit:

Cave Theme
Main OW Theme

If you want, I could send you the .txts for these songs.

Check out my music!
The overworlds look really good. They remind me of a game I used to play, though. I don't know why.
Just going to throw a quick note that I might write up a track or two for this as well if you them. I don't typically jump into threads like this and offer stuff unless I know the creator is actually reliable enough to not abandon something within a week, and since you've more than proven that with your three hacks, I see no reason why I couldn't do something for this.

Let me know if there is anything you need specifically, otherwise I might just attack one of those themes on your list of FGs/BGs.
The overworld look really great, I really like this!

Also, the overworld graphic resemble to The Vip and Wall Mix series!
I do see the resemblence of the map tiles to VIP5 because of the stylistic similarities. Did you made them yourself?

On Pixel Art Requests: I generally do not accept work unless I either have the time, if I see your project worth my time to contribute towards, and that is usually me doing the approaching to you on that.
-I also do not accept speculative work as I do have various art I made on-hand with me.
-I am more receptive to equivalent exchange of resources in which case, you can DM me wherever I have an active presence on for the details.
-Other times I'm availible for your project is C3 request threads I may run.

Since a lot of people ask on youtube and smwcentral, the graphics I used for the overworld were these ones. I'm not sure if VIP5 used them or not but I can see why people would get the similarities.

Oh crap now my hope for an OW that not a lot people has seen is destroyed D=

I kid. Halfly.

But anywho, nice to see this getting Revamped.
I liked the idea before and now I like that you're putting it in motion cypher! One other thing you might want to change. I found some enemy placement very annoying at times and it took many times to get right. Slowdown was another thing I asked from a hack of yours. Normally their is no slowdown and if there is, very little, but in this game (the original) had A LOT of slowdown #w{=(} which made the game even HARDER! #w{>=(}

There used to be stuff in this footer, but it's all gone now.

Alright so, in the video ahead I just wanted to point out the FG graphics are all custom and something I drew in a couple hours total. As for the music, it's also unreleased made specifically for this hack by Moose (The guy above this post). This is the second level of MKMR and is almost the same level design, but improved and varied. Tell me what you think maybe.

Hey, cypher? Just so you know, that song in the video might be changed in the near future if it isn't dropped altogether. I just really don't like how it turned out. :/
The rest of the video is good, though.

Edit: Yeah, as of a few weeks ago, that video is now outdated. The song has at last been updated.

Check out my music!
Level looks really nice! I like the new water GFX. But, I don't know if maybe there is some style mis-match.

There used to be stuff in this footer, but it's all gone now.
The Overworld does look nice and unique; however the palette could use some work in my opinion. Right now it looks a little too faded; if you darkened the outlines a bit I think it’d look much better.

Example: (yours on left, my changes on right)

You also might want to remove the black outlines on the castle and icebergs since it makes them stand out a little too much.

That grass FG you showed looks really good, much more unique than the typical grassland FG you usually see in hacks.
