Why are Super Mario World ROM hacks so much more fun than any of the 2D games Nintendo ever pumped out? I just get a constant supply of fun or interesting games from SMW Central. All the creativity and soul are in here and not the New Supers that Nintendo put out too much.
>>

I can smell the onions and HRT oozing from your pores

what? I'm a member who mostly lurks. And now I make comments on the hacks I play to share my thoughts. what are you on about?

you gotta understand some normie casuals are based so shut the fuck up and let these niggas enjoy /vr/ you projecting cavewoman
>>
>>9029803
That is definitely true, there's way too much fucking kaizo. i hate it but at least there's a filter you can use to hide kaizo
>>
>>9029815
Any good Standard: Normal recommendations? I tend to gravitate towards them when life gets stressful
i think i played all of Gamma V's hacks, dont even know why i did that
>>
>>9029834
Super Mario Bros 3: The Secret Place Demo, A Hack Thing 2, Sicari

I can think of more when I see em, but lots of good choices especially from 2019 to 2020
>>
>>9029843
oh boy i love SMAS:SMB3 graphics in SMW, for some reason i have more nostalgia for SMAS than SMW
>>
>>9029729
I don't think any 2d Mario has had SOVL since the 90s
>>
>>9029834
Panic in the mushroom kingdom 1 and 2, SMB1X, Bowser Rampages Again, This HAck Needs a Name

those are a few i can remember now that are enjoyable
>>
>>9029729
They draw on decades of level design experience that didn't exist in the 90s.
They do subversive things that wouldn't fly in a commercially released game by Nintendo.
A lot of them are actually very shit.
But yeah the best SMW hacks are some of the best platformers ever released.
>>
>>9029803
Most of, yes. Then there are the brilliant ones that feel like they could have been a highly praised commercial release.
But that's why you read the reviews, look up youtube videos, reach /vr/ recommendations, and do this funny thing called trying them out to see if you like them and quitting if you don't.
>>
By the way if a hack says Difficulty: Standard that means it starts out as hard as world 8 in the original SMW and reaches kaizo difficulty by the last world.
If you see the words "save states recommended" then avoid. Look for reviews that say someone beat the thing on a real SNES.
>>
>>9029880
Just use the filter
tags: -kaizo -troll
type: +standard-easy, +standard-normal, +standard-hard
then sort by downloads so you can see the most played hacks

>>
>>9029729
nintendo lacked any form of soul during the NSMB era which is why its now so easy for fans to make mario games that are infinitely cooler and more fun
>>
>>9029834
I was blown away by New Super Mario World 2 - Around the World. Also works on Everdrive.

This is coming from someone else who's beaten all of Gamma V's hacks.

Lmao. zsnes zoomers larping as boomers BTFOd once again. Get a real emulator, kid
>>
>>9031643
They don't give ROMs because Nintendo would slam down on them hard if they got caught, lmao. Anyway do what >>9031659 said and get an emulator that isn't dogshit like Snes9x v1.53, or Higan.

>>9029729
They're not, they're noticeably amateurish most of the time.

I hate kaizo shite, but some of the stuff they have done with custom asm shit like sprites, gameplay modification, etc. is amazing.

>>9032419
That hack is lame and supports itself on the meme.
>>
>>9032402
Kitiku, Mushroom Kingdom under crimson skies, and Jump hacks are interesting but you're right, nothing beats the vanilla experience.
>>
>>9031659
What's wrong with zsnes? The last time I emulated snes games was like 10 years ago and it was fine then. If the emulator worked fine with these old games back then, why would that change?
>>
>>9032419
I think this would've been better if it wasn't for the final boss being Cthulhu talking like he's a Jojo villain and also being a crappy Noob Boss spamfest.
>>
Sure smells like HRT in here

Also Mario Maker is better and more creative than the autustic romhack community
>>
>>9029729
Romhacks get feedback for an existing product.
>>
>>9033349
ZSNES never strived for accuracy, but making sure games could run on ancient hardware.

Modern SNES homebrew and hacking development requires super-accurate emulation because some of the really ambitious stuff will add in SA-1 co-processor support for very unique function calls.
Stuff that can work on real hardware.
Some older SNES ROM hacks were designed around ZSNES functionality that was literally impossible on real hardware, which is to say, not emulating it.

ZSNES also has an exploit that will allow a maliciously crafted ROM to escape sandboxing and start executing things on your Windows system.

ZSNES is so off I ran into inconsistencies just writing my own patches. I accidentally wrote code past the end of a bank and ZSNES just kept reading like nothing was wrong

I really liked this. The fact it goes split screen when you walked away from the other player was great. You could each dick around and explore levels on your own and then meet back up.

dtothefourth is the creator of that level. He creates all types of neat romhacks, Secret of Mario is great.

She's really good at cool ASM like that. Another good hack is JUMP, it's hard but some of the stuff pulled off there is incredible
>>
>>9033983
>minimal kaizoshit
there's also less hacks in general. why let something you can filter out (like kaizo) ruin your view of the whole thing in general?
Although i do agree 3d mario hacks are super cool

The quantity of 64 hacks have been ramping up a lot lately. There's plenty of quality content that already exists.

>>9029729
I play the original version of TSRP2 over the remake because the music was awful. I couldn't stand the original music.
>>
I hate to admit it, but these hacks rarely ever get to be Nintendo quality. I had more fun with NSMB2 than with most of these hacks. You see, people are creating this with their free time for themselves, but do not have enough care to make something polished that will make people enjoy it all through.

tldr; The levels always turn out too long, too hard or with too many nasty sections. It's not easy to get the perfect balance of challenge and reward in a Mario level. Sometimes, they are really worthwhile.

I think my favorite thing about SMW hacks so far is the stupid meme hack known as Mario's Mystery Meat, and it has a compressed, yet functional SHMUP section that also uses capcom's sound samples flawlessly. Imagine playing Super Mario and it fucking squeezes in Area 88 into the thing somehow.
>>
>>9033349
ZSNES is an old piece of shit that hasn't been updated since 2004. Mario hacks used to be designed on it because it was what ran on any shitty machine, and thus everyone used it, but now that other emulators are far more accurate, there is little reason to use ZSNES, though ironically there are Mario hacks that only work correctly on ZSNES because they are built around the inaccuracies and won't work on real hardware.

Using zsnes by now is like choosing to post gameplay through gifs instead of through webms.
>>
>>9034306
Hated the physics when I tried it. Jump was all wrong.
>>
>>9034768
Bro, the average player would easily get filtered by a JUMP team hack. It's the best example of SMW trivia circlejerk there is out there. It's only good if you already know a bit about SMW hacking.

Jump 1 and half are completable by normie standards. Only some of the special stages will have you tearing your hairs out.

Just hours. The sonic bit looks awful btw. Need more vanilla hacks

Hacks in general kind of died off after Super Mario Maker became a thing. Honestly, if I'm playing a hack I would prefer for it to at LEAST have custom music or palettes. I am not hearing smw_overworld again for the 5000th time.

Thank you. I think I'll eventually just release this thing as a barely cohesive level pack.

Kaizo hacks got a huge fucking boom in popularity after Mario Maker 1 and 2 released. Unfortunately.

Honestly, the only Mario-type game, which actually plays like SMB3/SMW I actually like is New Super Marisa Land. At least it had the essence and soul, and full of original art, powerups, music, I can forgive the slippery controls.

The New Super Mario series are made for 5 year old children who can enjoy the annoying voices and the sugarcoated, but ugly 2,5D art. Not to mention the lacklustre levels and ideas which were nothing else, but poor hodjpodj remakes of the old-school stuff without any interesting additions.

The romhacks are also no... kaizo stuff and full of random ecclectic remakes without proper thought behind them.
>>
What are some romhacks with power ups that are different from the main series?
>>
>>9036174
>Unfortunately.
I'll take kaizo over the millionth pick a pipe or enemy spam that goes for "creative" maker levels.
>>
>>9033349
>If the emulator worked fine with these old games back then, why would that change?

ZSNES is generally good and fine for actual old games, but these new romhacks are not old games. They are new games that are built atop old games.

Any people with life avoid stupid shit like Kaizo Mario hacks. They are made for asian teens and bored virgins.

It's surprising you aren't a fan

hey pal, you can't just go around calling people asian like that

So what filtered you so hard? Quickie world or some toddler bs like that?

Actually playing Sicari
That's a good game indeed: Looks like a totally diferent game

For those who have finished it, I have a question:
What am I supposed to do in the Ancient Temple?
