Yeah, I'm aware of the reason it was taken down, and of its dubious legality. Thing is, ROM hacks -- and heck, emulation itself -- are *also* of dubious legality. We don't think much of it these days, because it's not the 90s and emulation isn't lumped in with anime porn, online casinos, and "WaReZ" anymore, but they're still technically illegal. And, of course, it's not like raocow does all his LPs on actual hardware, or even tries to pretend he's not playing on emulators, after all. It'd also be much easier (I would assume) for him to record GBA footage than it would be for him to have to fiddle with trying to record through a Wii/Wuu. (Has raocow *ever* actually done an LP of a game that was neither a native PC game nor played on emulator?) Ultimately, though, it's his call whether he wants to LP these stages.

Regardless, I'm glad someone leaked this hack. Having neither Wii nor Wuu, and thereby no access to the Virtual Console, being able to play the e-Reader stages on emulator was very welcome indeed.

Romhacks are of somewhat dubious legality but emulation most certainly isn't. The only part of emulation that's ever illegal is when it requires bios files from the system it's emulating and that's only illegal in the same way that roms themselves are illegal. Ie: Only if you don't dump the files yourself from your own copy.

That's true, but it's not like we can assume raocow -- or indeed, *anyone* who does LPs via emulator -- realistically owns and has personally dumped every ROM they're playing. Yeah, it's one of those things with loopholes-a-plenty that are technically illegal, but given the state of emulation these days, I don't really think many companies particularly care anymore.

But I'm not really disagreeing with you or anyone else, particularly. I'm just noting that I don't think there'd be any more legal issues in raocow doing an LP of the SMB3 e-Reader stages via a hacked GBA ROM than pretty much any other emulation-based LP out there. :P (Heck, law of averages being what it is on the internet, I'm sure *someone* has already LP'd them anyhow, so...)

Oh. Wasn't it possible to play the e-reader levels in emulators for a long time though? Way before SMA4 showed up on the Virtual Console?

I think there was a hacked save or something floating around, but the one I had at least had the levels all fully completed (all collectables), and I think it was missing some stages. The official hack actually enables *every* e-Reader stage, including some promotional ones, allowing you to play the levels properly and collect items and whatnot.

To be honest, I'm not exactly sure *how* e-Reader data would otherwise be incorporated into GBA ROMs, but then, I'm not very savvy when it comes to ROM hacking or ROM formats in general.

At least it's not as jarring as the half pixel, half realistic design of River City Super Sports Challenge - All Star Special

EDIT: Or River City Tokyo Rumble for that matter. Apparently Tokyo Rumble is pretty decent though, so who knows?

If it was a modification made by Nintendo, it probably wasn't a ROM hack. That would be silly; SMA4 wasn't developed that long ago, so Nintendo should still have had the source code to it stashed away somewhere. Modifying the source code is always much easier than modifying a binary.

Anyways, on a similar vein as the E-reader levels, I'd like to see Raocow do the 6 'secret' levels from the GBA version of Yoshi's Island. See how he fairs against those.

Hey raocow, I suddenly had a bit of a flashback to Obake today. You know, that cute really old Japanese indie game where it's like Kirby but you haunt enemies and play as them instead of just taking their powers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLL0k_R0H9A

I found a video you made back in 2010 while searching for it saying that you couldn't record it because the game is full-screen only. Is that still an issue? Because that game would make a 10/10 LP for you if you ask me. It's cute, vaguely Mario-esque, and probably around the Kirby series in difficulty.

The last time Obake was brought up here was around here.

Didn't someone present a workaround for the full screen problem?

I don't know, but honestly it's right up there with Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Cat Planet for games raocow would lose his mind over in the most hilarious ways possible.

Maybe now that he has Windows 10, things are different and he can record fullscreen?

The only one who can answer that is raocow.

So I'm sure Wuppo's already been suggested at least once, but having recently beaten the game let me add to that count. 'S a pretty dang good game.

Also as a suggestion for the SMBX queue, Halloween Hypnosis Redo, December Collapse or whatever the newest 2k1x game is by the time you'd get around to it. The ones I've played are generally pretty short but challenging and feature neat tech, great bosses and goofy, in-jokey SMBX community fanfiction stories that can nonetheless be enjoyed without prior knowledge of the forum and it's members.

played the demo of this and it's fun as heck, just wholesome platformy fun. not too hard either, it's no super meat boy, but it just feels great to play

Airscape: The Fall of Gravity is a crazy hard 2D Platformer in the style of Super Meat Boy combined with the gravity shenanigans of Super Mario Galaxy.

I just finished playing through Owlboy after getting it for my birthday, and there were numerous times where I thought to myself "raocow would really dig this game.". Its got amazing pixel art, music, story and aesthetic. It can be a bit challenging at times, but for the most part it is a light hearted platformer that (in my opinion) really takes inspiration from alot of SNES/early console style platformers. There's a collection screen for raocow to keep track of the collection goal in each area if he goes for 100%.

It's a bit pricey, at $28 on Steam, but in my opinion is completely worth a shot if it interests him.

You should play this Yoshi's Island level as a one-off after VLDC9:

I'm just throwing stuff around here, but if you think about raocow hasn't really played much SMBX. Like, he's played a lot of it, but he hasn't really played any notable episodes that aren't early early early ones and collabs. I just kinda thing it's been a little neglected. I was thinking he could play some more well known recent episodes. (well, not RECENT recent, going as far back as 2014 here.) I was thinking Star Expedition, Legends, Luigi's Fight for the Mushroom Kingdom, or hell even go back to your roots with The Great Empire 3.

Like I said I'm just throwing ideas around, my memory of these is foggy at best and I don't know what the best thing for raocow to play would be.
