*Broozer bumps his own blog, along with an update!

Hello, everyone! I finally decided to bump this blog, after about time, along with an update, from yours truly. B)

Well... some of you might know a little of Super Mario World Hacking Contests (SMHC), a board that was created by Yoshiro. As the name suggests, this board was mainly created for several SMW Hacking contests - the first contest to be announced was the Grassland Contest, which the contestants had to create an enjoyable grassy level - I mean, the level should'd had a good level design (obviously), and it also could have custom stuff within it, so that it turned out even better. As soon as I heard of this contest and the actual board itself, I decided to join the contest, and eventually, I got done with my contest entry, whose the name is Joybush Road. It seems like that spending all day working on this level until 1:00 A.M. resulted on something! Yep, that's it - this level ended up in first place, along with X-King's level - so it was technically a tie.

Here's a video that shows off everything from the level, which I recorded and uploaded to YouTube - yeah, you are probably guessing that I liked so much how my level turned out that I decided to record a video of it - and YOU'RE RIGHT, BUDDY! I love how this level turned out, although as the judges on SMWHC mentioned, the time limit is rather short.

Anyway, here's the video. Enjoy watching!

Oh... and how could I forget of the download link itself? Yep, that's it - feel free to check out the level yourselves, by just clicking on this link!

Have fun, and until the next update, see ya!

Blog Opened

Hello there! I decided to follow a small "fad" on SMW Central, and I went ahead and created a blog as well. SMW Central is a SMW Hacking site, as the name suggests, and SMW stands for Super Mario World, which is a game for the SNES people can modify nowadays, by using a level editor for that game called Lunar Magic.

Speaking of that, if you are interested on hacking SMW, you need to download Lunar Magic (which you can find here), a clean SMW ROM (google it) and a SNES emulator - I like using ZSNES to test out the small modifications I do on my hack, you can find it here. As far as I know, SMW is the video game you can most modify by using a level editor - you can insert custom graphics, custom blocks, custom sprites and even custom music in your hack! I guess that's why I like hacking SMW so much - you can basically create a brand new game by using SMW as a base, if you want.

Well, now you might've gotten why I created this blog - I want to show off most of my SMW hacking related stuff in this blog, such as my custom graphics, my levels, and stuff from my main SMW hack. So yeah, the blog is finally "opened" - I guess I'll be able to show some nice stuff up to tomorrow, so stay tuned! Until then, see ya!
