Brutal Mario Question

I've got a weird question about Brutal Mario.

Why did it get to 7.5 worlds, and then it never got completed? I mean, I know Carol is still working on it, but does anyone know what caused the major progress slowdown? Did Carol dislike it and want to remake it?

No he's not. Carol stopped working on Brutal Mario since 2012.
Don't spout whatever you think happened instead of gathering evidence for what happened to it.

As for the question, nobody knows. There was a so-called "demo" called "skill.ips" but nobody knows if it's legit of not.
theres been bits and pieces showing up mysteriously over the years through various means that imply that carol has made more progress than we have seen, however at this point i doubt it will ever reach completion.

as for why, people lose motivation on projects... its not like its easy. people have other things to do sometimes.

Do you have any proof of this still being worked on? Then why is this 'new' demo a fake? Besides this thread is one of the reasons why the last thread got closed.
We have no proof of it either being fake or real, and belch

All I'm saying is that you have no proof of it being fake, and I have no proof of it being real. There are no conclusions to draw. All we can say is that it's ambiguous.
Even if Brutal Mario is still being worked on, Carol would have to devote a lot of his time towards re-coding almost all of the bosses. A lot of them break with the latest version of Lunar Magic.
Yeah, it would be a tough job to transfer all hex edits, Assembly, graphics, songs, patches, sprites and bosses to a new ROM. Besides, Carol would firstly post it in his site rather than a person.
You guys are assuming carol or any Japanese hacker for that matter cares about new releases. VIP5 used the old non-super deluxe blocktool.
Brutal Mario is mostly dead. The "new demos" are fanmade. Carol is IDK. It is just dead. Although I guess we should not be that surprise that it died anyway. I mean, project like this never gets finish.

I am pretty sure we will never see Carol do something with hacking again.
Wasn't carol emailed a couple times by Cheat-Master (or whatever his name was) and he said those weren't his demos and that he's still working on his hack? I'm probably wrong though, since I just took a quick look at a Talkhaus' thread.

Could be true ,but I doubt. I mean, it been from 2009 since a demo, and well everything stop. I don't think it would take that long for Brutal Mario (A rom hack) to be finish unless it was a game maker game or a game made in it own program.

Brutal Mario is a other exsample of a game that is lost in being a "loved by many and wanted by many ,but they will never get it" Most Fangame makers just don't have what it takes to finish a giant project it seems.

Whatever, I hate Brutal Mario anyway.

It's just one big ASM showoff.

Jelly much :3 ???
yeah if u criticize something the only explanation is you really like it and are sad that you didnt make it i mean i know i pretend to hate every single fictional work i like thats what we all do this is perfectly reasonable and normal thing tha t people do

im friggin tired of hearing "you dont like it because youre jealous of it" literally who the frick does that with a fictional work im serious

He's right though, there's little to Brutal Mario itself. It's a compilation of things we can do easily nowadays and bosses from other games. The design itself is very lacking. In the end it's just a showoff, which might have lasted when it came out. But nowadays there's really not that much to be excited about.
Wasn't the final boss in Brutal Mario, which was Marx from KSSU, broken and was never fixed?
Zeldaboy14: Zelda64 Modder, n00b at SMW hacking, reporting and back from the dead of 9-13-2014. Happy near 10 years everyone! :3
I think the only thing he had to finish was bowsers castle which is still there and partly worked on. So why didn't he just finish bowser's castle, I don't think it would've taken much to finish it
yeah why didnt he just make his game for us!!! who cares that he didnt wanna work onn it just finish it finish it for us we need to savestate our way through more overly long boss fights make video games for us!!!!!!!

it doesnt matter how much was left, he didnt wanna work on it the end

its a hobby not a job

Oh well, sucks it never got finished, but then again the hack was still pretty cool so I had fun playing it.

300th POST YEAH!
