TANGUARY JAMUARY - A SMBX Level "Contest"

Post by tangy »

Image

Weclome to 2022! I am tangy, your erratic, unhinged host for the month.

Didn't expect to see this in your contest forum? TOO BAD! It is here to stay. Welcome to:

TANGUARY JAMUARY
The contest that isn't a contest.

THE RULES
RULE 1 - You sign up for the contest by submitting EXACTLY ONE .zip file, containing a .lvlx level and its corresponding custom folder. Only your LATEST submission will be considered, giving leeway for last-minute changes. Your submission can be any level, with any kind of custom graphics or lua chicanery or funky playable characters or anything like that. It doesn't even have to be a newly made level, it just has to exist. You may have any number of stars, any number of exits, any kind of sprite, it doesn't matter. Just have a level.
RULE 2 - The due date is January 31. No extensions. If I get no submissions, then I will just make an empty hub world.
RULE 3 - Arbitrary "judging" and level ordering. I will give your level an arbitrary, but completely objective, amount of points. I am not allowed to be subjective. The meta-contest is figuring out why your level scored the amount of points it did. I'll probably say the metrics I used somewhere in the hub world.
RULE 4 - If multiple people make a level, please include every author in your submission. This is just for convenience's sake.
RULE 5 - I can't include levels that don't work. I'll try to contact you if you messed up your .zip file.
RULE 6 - Make sure your zip file's filename contains both your name and your level's name. Also for convenience's sake. I'll be angry in the hub if your level doesn't have a name.
SOFT RULE 7 - Make your level completable in at least one way. You don't have to, but I'll be angry at you in the hub if you don't.

OTHER STUFF
Medals - Medals and corresponding userbars might be handed out for following additional objectives. These objectives will not be revealed until submissions are complete and results have been released.
Also feel free to use this as the discussion thread too (or just talk about it on your discord server of choice, i don't care)

REPEATING IT FOR THE BACK OF THE CLASS - THE DUE DATE IS JANUARY 31st
no time zone. when i am awake on February 1st i will close submissions and immediately begin work.

Happy level-make!

question, are there any limitations to what you have to make (like do we get Assigned Devkit Assets to use like MaGLX3) or is it just. Make A Level, In SMBX, Submit It

Hey i don't know how to get past this part. There's undoubtedly something special I have to do but it's absolutely not clear at all. Even looking at the editor doesn't give any help.

Enjoy.

Working on this was fun, and I ended up learning a bit. I expect to get dead last again.

Sorry for taking so long, RPGs and all.

I was in a goofy mood so I slapped something together, which is apparently very acceptable here.

Is it good? No. Did I test it? Yes, but only to discover it did not work the way I wanted it to because I forgot how a key NPC works, and I very deliberately have not changed it.

your submission is valid ! thanks!

it's the LAST DAY by the way - Sometime tomorrow i will be drawing the LINE AFTER WHICH LEVEL SUBMISSIONS DO NOT COUNT. it'll look like a bunch of hyphens in a row - you'll know when you see it.

Be sure to get your level in if you haven't already! I'm even accepting hastily made bullshit! happy level-make!

aaaaaaaa
I'm out of time. There are some ... ah ... further aesthetic refinements I would have wanted to make, among a few other issues I wanted to address, but I'm satisfied with this.

SMBX has gotten quite a few additional features since I last touched it (

somewhere around 8 years ago, if I recall correctly

), and I got to play around with a couple of them for this level.

I don't see a row of hyphens yet, so it looks like I'm not too late.
I made this level in three days. Please play as Toad or Mario. The readme I included in the .zip file contains the credits.

Edit: The hyphens are still not here, so I made some very minor changes to my level. Hopefully that's okay!

I crapped out this Nobel Prize-winning level in the five free hours that I had when I came home from work today. Hope there's no softlocks or crashes.

I updated my level. The new version can be downloaded from my previous post. I only made very small changes but I figured I should mention this regardless.
