A couple of you remember this hack, and a few of you seemed pretty excited by the fact that it was being revamped. So it is with sadness that I announce the official cancellation of this hack.
Basically, after cyphermur9t came back after his period of inactivity, I asked him if we could expect any progress on MKM1R. He responded by saying that, with his new life at the university, and his promising future as an animator, he has decided to cancel the hack and move on from SMW hacking.
I made this thread because I was a major contributor to the hack (I wrote some original music for him), and I thought I'd make the announcement myself so as not to trouble him.
Thank you very much for your interest this past year or so, and please continue to encourage him, whatever he does, wherever he goes.
Yeah, sorry about not being able to finish MKM1R guys. But I did enjoy my SMW Hacking experience while it lasted those few years. As Moose said, he helped a lot with the music and I really appreciate his efforts and I felt a little guilty when I had to cancel this.
Albeit I have moved on from SMW Hacking, I have not moved on from the community here. This website is probably one of the few left where people treat each other with dignity and respect.
Its all right, we forgive you for the cancellation. (Kind of sad, though...)

Too bad the hack was cancelled... I played the first version and I had a lot of fun with it. Oh well, good luck Cypher.
I remember some of these songs back when you showed them off in the SPC thread. My favorites are Grassland 2 and Apocalypse Map, they're just really professional and make a really great ambient. Nice work! I'll definitely use some.
That's really a shame. I have never followed the hack's progresses, but it's always sad to hear such things.
That said...the soundtrack is absolutely amazing! You always use SMW's instrumentation really well (apocalypse-map is an example) and manage to make memorable melodies such as grassland2, which I have listened to many times and still is one of my favourites: the key changes are lovely. I also hear inspiration from Jun Ishikawa, which is one of my favourite composers ever.
Truly an excellent work: these tracks definitely deserve to be used somewhere.
It's a shame, because I feel like now the soundtrack will only show up fragmented across hacks the songs weren't originally meant for. I still hope projects put them to use, though, because they're really nice. Very environmental, not too overbearing, fitting for various maps and levels. Nice work!
"Future Map" totally reminds me of M. Bison's theme :b
Actually, the volcano map theme is also reminiscent of ASMT's somehow, but that might just be me.
Anyway, hope we'll see more tunes from you in the future!
Man, how much I liked MKM. After MGU (one of my first hacks) I played all of your other hacks, with pleasure. MKM is still one of the best hacks out here, especially since it's not that new. It's a pity you move on, but everybody will eventually, it's just like a lot of other things in life. Also those songs, my gawd, are amazing. Moose, you did an awesome job composing and porting these. Please, keep doing this .
