Hello, and welcome to 24hosmw The Fourth! I am proud to present the objective for this contest's theme:
Add visual enhancements, decorations, graphical changes, and musical changes to one Super Mario World level, to give it a winter or holiday theme! Use existing material on the site or make your own!
Level functionality must not be changed
, only aesthetic changes are allowed. This means that no changes may affect gameplay in any manner.
Only levels that are available on the Overworld in the original Super Mario World may be submitted. The sub-levels for that level must also be edited (but the Flying Yoshi Level is optional, if it is accessible). Levels that may not
be submitted also include:
x Yoshi's House (104)
x Top Secret Area (003)
x Chocolate Island 2 (024) This level may be used if "Allow level 24 to redirect screen exits based on coins collected and time remaining." is deselected.
x Front Door (10D)
x Back Door (10E)
Title screen, Overworld, and credits will not be judged. Feel free to spruce these up, but only the main level will be judged.
Switch blocks may be removed, or replaced with their activated versions. All switch blocks of a particular color must be activated if you choose to consider that switch activated. Any combination of switches may be considered activated, as they are all available without activating any other Switch Palace.
Also, consider that one may also use ASM as long as it does not affect the level, such as for HDMA, layer 3, parallax BG scrolling, or even edit's ExGFX Revolution patches. Other details, such as Mario GFX, sound effects, or even status bar font, may be changed. Consider thinking outside the box for those extra fine details, but don't forget that the level is still the main feast.
For those new to the 24hosmw contests, this is a level hacking contest that runs for exactly 24 hours, with a simple theme to foster creativity under a tight deadline.
Please keep all discussion in the Discussion thread.
