Oh boy, it sure is that time of the year again where the boys (read: you guys) vote for the things (see: C3 threads and resources).
-Ties of more than three people are not awarded trophies, except for first place.
-Third place is not awarded trophies if there are at least five total first and second place winners.
-Trophies for SMW but every sound effect and instrument is @17 but also everything is a goddamn mess will be credited to Samuel, Telinc1, and randomdude999.
-Trophies for TEAM NIGHTMARE DIRECT - Watch the latest news of 100 Rooms of Enemies + More! will be credited to Mellonpizza and Daizo Dee Von.
-Trophies for Super Mario World Central Production 2 - Reloaded, Revamped, Reinserted! (Demo available!) will be credited to Falconpunch, Blind Devil, and idol.
-Trophies for Real Pog Gaming presents: Project DOWNTOWN RPG will be credited to Tob and PercentN.
Without further ado...
C3 SUMMER 2019 RESULTS.
A mighty 6 votes cements yours truly in Best Feedback - which surprised me up the block! Congratulations to my comrades Maarfy and the boys for engaging in C3 with the utmost of feedback.
A sample pack of 782 by our resident Master Musician cracks first place along with an insane standalone SNES Super Mario Bros. 3 & SMAS+W Disassembly from the most fanatic of Yoshis. These two threads alone are some of the most incredible things I've seen posted during a C3. Thomas's sinister Mode 7 Bonanza takes up second, and WhiteYoshiEgg wins one of what's going to be a million trophies for his creative upcoming A Plumber For All Seasons.
If you're ready for your Game to be Changed, these three boys will smash a rock against your head with what they have to bring to the table. lx5's powerups patch makes another appearance - this time Finished in all its' Glory.
Nostradamus himself couldn't even see WhiteYoshiEgg's surprise portable screen-scroll pipes be born into existence. And don't even get me started on how blind he'd be about KKevinM's incredible ports - including the very notable Diving port from Waterworld, and TheBiob's update to LMSW to make it usable for the modern man. And oh - what's that? Is it SMWCP2, but with a ton of progress? Surprise!
Oh WhiteYoshiEgg - with 18 votes you murdered your competition into just a bloody, bloody mess. Deeke barely survived the onslaught - and I'd argue whether or not I or Falconpunch would be recognizable at the scene.
Less is more in the eyes of a giant. Gifty's title sure was accurate - it truly was cool enough to net the prestigious First Place. Samuel (I was wondering who you were - it's our old friend Decoy!) joins Gifty in the musical madness, and the eternal ASMer Sonikku nabs fourth with his portable wall triangles and Angry Sun / Silly Moon. Speaking of portable - between Sonikku's portable wall triangles and WhiteYoshiEgg's portable pipes, which one of the two would win in a deathmatch?
Humor - nectar of the gods. And the gods sure are pleased by the mess that the trio of Samuel, randomdude999, and Telinc1 all dabbled in this C3. The most horrible, unplayable thing known to man. And boy is it fun. The rest of the gang is all here, too! A large collection of #funny Discord conversations, longtime renaissance man Roberto Zampari's EXTRA THICC hack, and our fondest boys Meirdent and Eevee joining him. Uffda!
These threads don't care what the social norms are, and they're winnin' awards because of it. Rod Serling would be proud of these threads, and boy I am too.
C3 is often like the American Black Friday - chaos, disorder, and a lot of cool stuff. In the wake of the resource-sharing Apocalypse we host, some threads get left 6 feet under. Kinda like a funeral, we take a second to honor these threads that may not have had much attention, but were still very appreciated by the masses.
New Super Mario World 2... with 18 votes, that's almost as many worlds as this hack has! It's times like this where I imagine you, the audience, are laughing with me. At least I hope so, otherwise I'll be acting the part of the fool here.
1 vote separates each tier for the Best Demo SMW Hack, showing the tight competition this time around. Deeke, Tahixham, and Stiviboy all showing very cool playable progress with their projects here. Best of luck to you guys on finishing it!
The God of the New World has returned to take another trophy, with A Plumber For All Seasons rackin' up an impressive 10 votes in first. Lesbians, libraries, and Latest News's all rear their cute heads for some lovely trophies as well. God bless the USA.
Kaizo is its' name, and Evil is its' game. For those fond of starting fights with gang members, doing lines of coke, or getting mad at video games online... these threads are for you.
Have you ever scrolled through SMW Central and thought to yourself... "I'm so sick of Super Mario World. I Don't want to see it anymore, and I hate Mario and I'm going to kill him"? Well, these threads and a bit of therapy should do the trick! Tob and PercentN's Project Downtown shows a lot of promise, with some very incredible visuals, nice character designs, and impeccable charm. Retry system & Boomerang Sledge Bros in the NES Super Mario Bros. 3? Check no further than RussianMan's 2nd place thread, and if homebrew is your game... well.. heh.... Final Theory sure has something for you....
And Rykon closes out the trophies here with his demo of Comeback to Yoshi's Island! We salute our Yoshi's Island hackers, you are the bravest men known on this side of the Earth.
These trophies go to projects that'll surely win an Oscar next February. The trailers are captivating, emotional, and display such a raw depiction of Mario Hacking in the Modern Age. Congratulations to our winners, here!
PercentN decided to show up to this category with a gun, managing to claim not only 1st... but 2nd as well! Truly he is an unstoppable force in the modern SMW Graphics game. If you're looking to mess with PercentN, you better bring something better than a gun.
This category is always a tight race, as C3 as of late has brought out the best of Custom SMW Sprites. Erik and Darolac both churning out a myriad of sprites, and lx5's megapost of various ASM releases ranging from powerups to remoderations of classic common patches. With our recent ASM Workshop, perhaps next winter's C3 will hold even more competition!
This category also tends to be a rather tight race. Three amazing porters are kings of this category - from some incredible and ballsy ports (again - Waterworld's Diving was ported!), to very cute presentation, to another ambitious OST from LadiesMan217. Our music sections are all the better thanks to you guys!
Requests and C3s are the new attached-at-the-hips fad, and each C3 more and more folks engage in this category. Darolac's sprite requests are the king of this castle, with Samuel's ports and bebn legg's drawings the two queens. And Miku... well, Miku's smarter than engaging in a monarchy anyways.
Oh buddy, this category is one for the wolves. First with both the evil trio's hell SMW patch and Scrydan's SMWC Maker / Minecraft Randomizer, and randomdude and Eevee both adding another trophy to their repertoire.
It can't be the last category already? What happened to the Sexist Thread award? Most Off-the-Rocker award? Thread That Induced The Most Bloodthirsty Rage?
Ah well, country girls make do. Concluding this C3, we want to salute the four threads that all made it to first place. Truly this is the highest of honors.
Thanks for partaking in this C3, everyone! Trophies should be live as well - if there's any errors or issues with anything, let us know. Thanks!
