I'm curious about your backgrounds though. How many ExGFX files do you use for them? I see so many unique tiles, how do you fit them all?
The backgrounds tend to take up two or three ExGFX files. (I draw them in paint.net and rip them with edit's BG ripper, and it often takes several attempts to get the number of tiles low enough - a frequent trick of mine is to just make it one screen high and disable vertical BG scrolling.) Usually there's enough space left for foreground and decorations, with just a few tiles' worth of leeway.

And I thought you were quitting SMW hacking. I hope this hack actually comes to fruition, because it does look like something I would play (unless you end up making it stupid hard like most). I look forward to seeing future development on it. I'd also be willing to help out with the music.
Not leaving without a grand finale! :p This is something I'd really like to pull through. (And don't worry, I try not to make it too hard.)
Also, thanks for the music offer - I may get back to you on that when I feel it's time. (I've composed a handful of melodies and will probably need help fleshing them out and porting them, as well as making new songs altogether.)
