I just got finished making some player graphics. I would like to submit them to the graphics section because an artist and I have been working hard on them for almost a year, but it's not a simple graphics swap. Patches such as a modified version of this is needed because there is no small form and a modified version of this is needed because cape frames weren't drawn and the player was designed with Raccoon flying physics in mind and a modified version of this is needed because the player is 32x32 and a few more patches made by me specifically for the player are needed. The player isn't compatible with the castle destruction cut scenes.

So would I be allowed to put the graphics, palettes, patches, and everything that's needed for the player to work in a .zip and submit it to the graphics section? Could I just put a .bps in the .zip and submit it that way?

Yes, and in that case you must mention in the description the patches you used (link to them if they're hosted in the site) and what changes your modifications bring to them. You must also use the patch needed tag. I recommend giving credit to the authors of any patches that aren't hosted in the site and aren't linked.

That wouldn't follow the submission guidelines and there's no possibility for an exception here. Also consider that the regular user would not be able to readily get all they need for the graphics to work in their hack, which wouldn't be very convenient.
So Gloomy rejected my Spike player.

He said that I had to indicate what I changed about the patches required for the player to work. I thought I did. That's what the stuff in the description starting with "The player graphics are 32x32, so a modified version..." is for. Was I instead supposed to say,

"Neosz's MUCH better Raccoon Patch's .asm file with the following changes is required:

- Remove the "Caped Mario head tilemap" code block.
- Remove the "cape tilemap" code block.
- Remove the "cape offsets" and "player tilemap" code blocks.
- If you want to make it so that you can hold the B button to fly instead of tap it, change the "db $16" under ";tap Y to float" to "db $15" and put a ; before "LDA #$04" and "STA $1DFC|!base2""

?

Yes, that's an overall better approach. As of recently, links to submissions always redirect to the most recent version hosted, which guarantees that the patches linked will always be up to date. This may be harder and may take longer for the user to set up, but that's but a small fraction of all the trouble they'd had if the patches included started having compatibility issues with recent tools, patches, etc., requiring extensive ASM knowledge and whatnot to fix them.
Regarding fixing the Yoshi palette issue on the over world, should I fix it by moving the Mario and Luigi palettes to the left side of Palettes C, D, E, or F? Which 2? What normally uses those palettes on the over world?

Never mind, I thought of a fix for the Yoshi over world palette issue.
