Hey guys, I am thinking about making a Hack that has a Variety of level styles and themes. Also, I rarely use Save States so I don't want to make it a Kaizo Hack. Any guidelines on how to make the Many Worlds challenging while still fun?
In Rescue of Rochie, how do I get the secret exit in Forest Ghost House?
I found the secret exit. Now I would like to know where is the key in Waterfalls Field?
To get the key, you need Yoshi. Once you have obtained him, enter the fourth pipe in the level (the one with the wall spring board). After entering, eat the two pink berries in the level. Normally the egg would release a cloud mini-game, but it actually releases a flying key. Grab it and proceed to the keyhole as you would normally in the level.

Warning: Since this is the flying key activated using a unique property in SMW, it will actually hurt you so you would need to take a hit to grab it.
Rescue of Rochie - Desert Shifting Sand. Any hints for secret exit?
I want to download SMW: Bowser's Return by Ice Man, but can't find it. Help?

It's not on SMW Central anymore, and I think posting link to ROMs are illegal. So, I'll post the flash game:

Um, that's a ROM too, but with an online emulator.

Yeah, but you don't actually GIVE the ROM to him. Since we don't get the ROM in any way (like borrowing our friend's ROM).

I can download that ROM by using a network analyzer to see what files it downloads.

But this is well beyond the effort needed to grab the ROMs from some random ROM host, and we're not the one hosting that file. Sometimes I think our ROM rules are a bit too paranoid.

And they're inconsistent, too; nobody has ever been angry at anyone for linking to a Google search for Super Mario World (U) [!], which contains ROMs all over. Yet hiding the ROM behind a Flash widget is immediately controversial. As are disassemblies.

What exactly is the limit? Can I link a search for http://example.com/roms/snes/smw.zip (pretend it exists)? Can I link to an I'm Feeling Lucky LMGTFY?

The rules are you could give a ROM privately into someone (like gifting one to a friend), but you could not link a ROM in the public SMWC site, in my opinion.

However, the rules only calls that we can't upload and hand a ROM. There's no rules to linking to a ROM that we didn't upload, right?

My hack:
The rule is that you're not allowed to link ROMs on the site. We can't effectively patrol PMs or anything (only admins have the power to view other people's PMs), but we can enforce the rule on the forum.

It doesn't matter who uploaded the ROM. If you link commercial ROMs, you are violating the site rules and copyright law.

Well, the rules says something different:

There is no rule for linking ROMs on SMWC. #ab{:P}

...

Okay, this rule should updated that you not only can't submit but also link to illegal stuff.

So rules are opinions now?

I could find about a dozen ways to be an asshole about that, but that's being an asshole and we don't need that.

Why would the lawyers go after us rather than the host? Why are links to Google searches for "mario rom" allowed, and YouTube videos with ROMs in the description banned? Where does our responsibility end?

Did you tl;dr my post and read only his?

Enforcing another rule than what's written is indeed bad, but I'd rather have the written rules be the enforced ones than the opposite. We're far more paranoid than what's really healthy.

I'm fine with nuking links to documents that contain solely or primarily ROMs, but if there's other valid content too, I'd rather keep it there.

Alright, yes, I admit I only skimmed Alcaro's post.

Basically my stance is direct links to roms are not okay. Linking a Google search for the rom? I guess it's alright (although morally a gray area imo).

Rules need to say we're not allowed to link roms. If Nintendo gets the impression that we are distributing roms, they could try to shut us down.

You're so picky.

We're talking about copyright, not moral. I could think of lots of reasons to stop this.

Why don't they shut those down then? And basically, what for do you need to shut down a site that has a 30-year-old ROM?

My hack:
Nintendo sells Super Mario World through their Virtual Console service. They would much rather have people buy it that way than download a rom for free off the internet.

As for why they haven't been more proactive, I don't know. I'm not Nintendo.
Can we go on topic?

Does anyone know any chocolate hacks as good as TSRPR?
