Tip: Try making new backgrounds using SMW's existing graphics. For example, if you have a hilly BG, rearrange it to make it look more unique.Not logged in.

I see. I didn't figure that out.
I finished my KLDC 2020 level, go play it!
well, i've finished my judging. final thoughts:

-just because the rom has a ton of sprites for you to use does not mean you have to use them all. seriously. pick two or three and then get creative with those.
-no, really. i do not need every single kind of "bros" enemy on a flat plain. stop that. seriously, lather fucking bubbles all over your level and it will be better than the hodgepodge play (tm)
-there's actually way less usage of the punchy sprite than you may think, and basically everyone who DID use it did so in some super neat ways, so good job there.
-except that entry that was just level 106 but with a ton of punchy sprites everywhere. come on.
-i have a fair number of guesses on who made my personal top three - however, there are a couple of extremely great entries that i couldn't even think of the author on, so.. if you're a new designer and a first-timer to smwc's contests, you might actually be so much more awesome than you assumed you were. hang tight.
-nobody used the fake boo door. seriously, i like to think i can come up with some pretty radical ways to use even the most random of sprites, but that one is beyond me. throw it in the trash. it's dumb. i hate it. seriously, why does it exist?
-the boo door is shit.
-you know what sprite was surprisingly underutilized? the mini mushroom power-up. the one entry that did use it had some pretty creative ideas, so, uh.. man, maybe loosen up on the firebar usage a bit and go for that next time??
-some people seem to still think this is a vldc and not a bldc. yes, you sculpted the mona lisa's pristine asshole out of vanilla tiles and i'm proud of you, but next time actually use the resources that were provided to you to boost that sweet creativity score.
-stop submitting kaizo levels. i know this is a super subjective and grey area, but reaction-based gameplay is seriously a niche thing. 90% of us don't play these hacks and it's so hard to compare your entry with more flying fish than the pacific fucking ocean to a level with a reasonable difficulty that used all of the sprites in a creative way. is your level creative or well-designed? i don't know, i got torn to meat chunks by the first muncher that made eye contact with me. sorry i'm bad at video games, i'm bad at a lot of other things too so let me have this witty comment at least.
-there's one level that is like, the most gorgeous thing i've seen in my 15ish years of doing smw hacking shit (has it seriously been that long?). good job, author. you should be an artist.
-fuck the boo door.

i'll post my remaining "judge comments" in the ol' slagging thread, and then i'll see you all when the results are live.

all 4 of my ideas with the power-up got scrapped because of how unreliable and janky it was. hit detection was a meme and the bounce effect wasnt compatible with any of the custom stuff

BLDC Results are out?

Tonight.. tonight..

Not yet. There will be a thread with the Results when they're ready.
Just giving a judging update:

Noivern's close to finished.
Tyty's about a quarter done.
sinc is about halfway done.
SNN is finished.
I have two complaints:

WTF is he doing if almost 3 months have passed?

SNN is finished.

He must definitely get life. He's been hacking SMW for a decade and a half and he's also first to get his judgements done.

teyla works 40 hours in retail. also three months have passed since the start of the contest... not since judging has began.

as for your comment on s.n.n., i think your warning says enough. i can't even count the amount of times you've belittled snn on different platforms (youtube, the discord, now the site). you're complaining that one judge is judging too slow and another judged too... quick? for a contest you didn't even enter, mind you?

please give the judges some respect here.

First off, it's only two months as of tomorrow so I don't know what you're thinking of.

Second, I don't know what you have against SNN, but knock it off already with these "SNN has no life" jokes. They're not funny to anyone except you and instead it makes you seem weirdly vindictive towards him for no reason.

Edit: Also I'm basing Tyty's progress of what he has listed in the judge spreadsheet. He may have more done and not have them inputted yet.

Isn't joking about S.N.N. a meme? Or do I understand something wrong and "no life" jokes aren't intelligent enough? ni-pah made a "Why wasn't S.N.N. banned yet?" thread and their account didn't get disabled yet.

I thought my comment wouldn't be hurtful as it was written with small letters. I didn't mean to hurt S.N.N. and I didn't know "no life" jokes were that hurtful when a person had been joked about. I genuinely love S.N.N.'s latest VLDC levels, his hacking project and Crystarp Hollow music. I did DM him and he replied with "it wasn't obvious it was a joke; no worries, though". No one replied to me on YouTube, either. Nevertheless, I'm sorry, this won't happen again.

Have you ever joked before??? I'm not sure if you know this but jokes aren't supposed to be things you state over and over again to the point it looks like you're saying it seriously and to the point you're harrassing someone.

I didn't mean to harass anyone. I thought that S.N.N. was such a cool guy everyone liked him even if they sounded offensive and that repeating could be a part of humor and it turns out it can't always be.

most people make fun of my crippling alcoholism rather than me being a good smw hacker. if you want to actually hurt me, try that. cheers!
i'd be surprised if anything could hurt you, since you're so frickin drunk do you even feel pain until you sober up (which is never you frickin drunk) haha #smrpg{y}

this is a nice compliment, thanks. it may - or may not - shock you to know that im replying to your post completely in the bag.

also what the fuck, these judges are ridiculous. where are the results? i want to know who won!! god, it's been months!!
i thought the results were already there but nope
Quick question: Have the submissions been archived and re-uploaded anywhere? I started going through the "submissions" thread to download them, only to find that some of the entries have been taken down from their original source.

--------------------
Currently streaming: Knytt Stories, various BLDC / C3 SMW hack submissions
Psst, I know when the results will come out. They'll be available after KLDC2020 results.

I long for these results. I wish I could know how I ranked, it will bring me out of some creative rut, or so do I believe. Knowing how I scored at this contest became way too important to me #smrpg{:D} and I just wish it was over now.

That said, @K.T.B. : I think we can safely imagine there is an actual archive, since S.N.N. has finished his part of the judging. If there is any missing, I will check if I can find on my computer.

Though I'm sure that there is an official archive of the BLDC submissions, I do also know of a website that archives a variety of SMW hacks called 'SMWdb'. Formerly called 'SMW Serve Game', it is managed by a SMWCentral user named 'Zandro', and contains an impressively large catalog of SMW hacks from various areas of the internet. The hacks are organized by their type, so the BLDC submission entries would be found under the 'Contests' section of the site. I do want to note that there is no search option on this site, so you will need to look through the hacks to find what you are looking for. The site organizes hacks in alphabetical order, though, so it shouldn't be too hard to find the BLDC entires.

If you want to check it out, I'll put a link to the database below:
http://smwdb.me/

You can also check out Zandro's user profile to get to the site. Anyways, I wish you good luck in finding the submissions. I hope you have a good day, and I'll see you later.

#smw{:peace:}
Adios!
