I still remember my first hack I ever played. It was called ANOTHER MARIO WORLD by StiviBoy (No my username isn't inspired by his) and I didn't even know this was possible I saw screenshots and then tried to play the rar data on my bootleg system #smw{-_-2} (It didn't work). Then like a year later I figgered out what a .rar data is and played the hack. It was great! The hack just changed the levels, the overworld, the title screen (with included gfx) and the credits. But I was really impressed. Good old times...

Those are definitely some interesting hacks to start with.

I believe my first hack ever was Super Mario TKO, one ProtonJon played back in the day. It was alright for its time, but it was sadly never finished.
Invictus, I saw it at GDQ and I was instantly hooked on SMW hacks. SMW was the first game I had ever played when I was like 3.

Obviously as it was my first hack I didn't do that well. It took me about 5 hours to beat the first 3 levels.
New Super Mario World 1: The 12 Magic Orbs (Yes, I'm not as old a user as most of you are #tb{¬_¬})

I played it at the beginning of 2018 and I remember being surprised to be able to play super mario world but with everything totally different and I spent months trying to finish (and I used a lot of savestate because I was extremely bad).
It is hard to remember what the first ROM hack in general was, but I do know it was a SNES translation hack - I just can't remember if it was Seiken Densetsu 3 or Der Langrisser.

The first SMW hack I played was The Ninji Saga by The Kins back in 2007 and I thoroughly enjoyed it, though at the time I found it pretty hard, especially in that lab-looking space level. I would not put it down until I had beaten it. I do remember being thoroughly impressed seeing how drastic of a change to SMW it was and I thought hey, that's something I would rather do than sinking all this time aimlessly into FF6... I think I clicked an affiliates link on RHDN and ended up here.

I did leave a few remarks about it and what a time capsule this section is. I forgot I even made this comment. This hack came out in 2005, and back then I was calling this 10, and I first played it when it was 2. Wow.

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
I cannot clearly remember the first SMW hack I played it, but I definitely remember playing them on a website called Vizzed back in late 2012. Before that in the same year (probably during the late summer), I was desperately looking where to play the original SMW when I found out about it through the Wii Shop (yeah, I had a Wii that time and probably still do?). I think the website was called VSNES or something and the emulation was quite inaccurate (for example, the mosaic that happens when you enter a level was conpletely missing and the M7 bosses didn't work properly). One year later, I found out about SMW hacking and this site and was eager to learn about it. However, I couldn't do much until late 2015, as I was more interested in SMBX. Good times.

Despite this account is from 2019 (since I lost my previous account), I've been playing romhacks for many years. First romhack I can remember was Super Mario World Redrawn which was vanilla SMW but with enhanced graphics (I don't if the version I played is still in the site).
After that I remember I played the "Master Quest series" which also has a "redrawn" version and custom music (typically unsampled ports from Yoshi's Island, DKC1-2-3, SMB3)

(I played ^those hacks probably during 2010 or so, don't remember exactly the year).

I know it's kinda ironic, but first hack I've played was called something else, and this hack was really good, happy to see the creator of this hack in JUMP hacks,
First I saw I think was 2012 Master Hand’s Doomsday, first I played was Alyssa’s Unlikely Trap
It's been so long ago that I'm starting to question my early memories. Way back in the vintage year of (early?) 2007, I had stumbled upon either Rob-omb's Quest, or Luigi's Adventure (old version) as my first hack. For some reason, I don't remember too much of Rob-omb's Quest. I don't think I even beat it, because I got stuck at the world filled with SMB3 remakes lol. There was some sort of secret exit that I couldn't find, which would leave the player stuck on the SMB3 remake map. I remember laughing at the Chogibi sprite (Yoshi replacement) and getting mad at some of the pipes that would purposefully kill off the player just for laughs. It made going in any pipe really risky.

I spent more time with Luigi's Adventure. I have distinct memories of struggling through world 5, world 6, and that one world 4 castle filled with weirdo custom blocks. I think I got relatively far without savestates, because I actually didn't even know savestates were a feature for a little while lol. I probably didn't beat Luigi's Adventure without savestates, but I do remember genuinely trying and failing to beat the mushroom juggling stage with Dino-Rhinos (9-1). I also remember an airship stage filled with millions of enemies and ExAnimated fire that sometimes insta-killed you. I'm looking through Luigi's Adventure on smwdb.me, and I kinda want to play it again...

Does anybody know where the Acmlm board archives went? I remember someone there posted about Brutal Mario, which was how I discovered it. Brutal Mario was NOT the first hack I've ever played, so if I can find that old post, I'd have a better idea of when I played my first hacks.
First Hack that I ever played was a Pokemon ROM Hack called Pokemon Uranium. I will admit that I did not understand very much about it back then and so I trashed it not long after to continue with the vanilla roms...too bad I do not think you can get Uranium anymore since Nintendo sued over its creation haha ;/ oh well

A. This sub-forum is about SMW Hacking Discussion, not Pokemon Hacking Discussion.
B. Pokemon Uranium isn't considered a ROM hack; it's actually a fangame made in RPG Maker VX. Calling that a ROM hack would be like calling anything made in SMBX a ROM hack.

Okay, now with that out of the way, I think one of the first hacks I played was SMW2+3: The Essence Star. I thought it was cool seeing slight RPG elements in the game. (Another one of the first hacks I played was a demo of The Fourth Sector, but I prefer not to think about that due to the creator's resignation from this site.)

--------------------
Kinda in hibernation for a while. I hope to be back in full swing soon.
First hack I played was Demo World (SMB3 style breakable bricks holy shit) then TSRP2 and Brutal Mario.

There was another one I played really early on -- it had really excellent custom graphics and had a kind of Mario on vacation theme. I remember Mario was hatless, maybe with a hawaiian shirt or something. It was made by someone here who at the time was really renowned for their pixel art but I can't remember their name or the name of the hack.
Any other old dudes know the hack I'm talking about?
The first hack I played was my own I was working on back in early 2019... it was trash... (You can find the trash here.)



I'm old I have been hacking SMW for like 19 years and as such I have played the founding hacks. The first one I ever played was Jazz411's Super Mario World which is contributed as being the very first SMW hack ever made wither or not that's true I have no idea.
Mario Game V1.0

LAYOUT FOOTER:
I think the first hack i played was Mario's Amazing Adventure but what really inspired to hack Super Mario World was New Super Mario World: The Twelve Magic Orbs and New Super Mario World 2: Around the World.

Finishing a hack, oh boy..
the first hack I played in 2015 when I was 9 was super mario world the senate

Haha, admittedly my first hack was the original Kaizo Mario.

The reason for this is because I was first introduced to SMW rom hacking through the OG 'Asshole Mario World' Youtube let's play of the game.
