Wow that's amazing; the individual entry pages are so well done. Nice seeing the previous two contests as well.

My god that's a lot of effort for something as minor as a magl archive. Mad props!

Wow, that is super neat! I'll admit I was a bit surprised to see my old username there attached to my current one.

Should add something like

Code: Select all

-ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor; // IE 7+ (non-standard property)
image-rendering: -webkit-optimize-contrast; // Safari 6, UC Browser 9.9
image-rendering: -webkit-crisp-edges; // Safari 7+
image-rendering: -moz-crisp-edges; // Firefox 3.6+
image-rendering: -o-crisp-edges; // Opera 12
image-rendering: pixelated; // Chrome 41+ and Opera 26+
To your body css.

Then change your background-image generation to look something like:

Code: Select all

linear-gradient(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4), rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4)), url(lvl108.png)

While that might be interesting for the background, I find it damages visibility in the level preview pane, where images are already resized to 50% and depend on interpolation to maintain clarity. I am not a web developer, and never liked adding the error-throwing fluff imposed by competing browser standards. I don't really mind if people experience their content natively, as it reduces the time I'd have to spend on bugs and breaks introduced later by engine changes.


@All, Thanks for the response. The work was indeed heavy, with a lot of spreadsheeting of data, building macros for image gathering and eventually generating the pages in an automated way. But, I'll likely end up on codinghorror if I say any more about it...

This is just 3 contests, but I have practically all other SMW hacks documented similarly, ready to publish in a couple clicks. This was merely a test.

That's a super impressive venture right there and it's awesome that you put the time to archive them all like that but... it is a slight bit disappointing that it inserted Yoshi's house into my level page's background instead of my actual level.

And also that it can't even show an image of the level at all.

And it's the only level I can see that it does that all with.

:(
call me reecer6, not reecer7, please! gotta maintain that same internet brand.

The map seemed a bit hard to navigate in such a small window. I can copy the image though and view it on large window, so it's not much of a problem.

Just thought I'd mention this here, as I just found this out, but it looks like the next version of snes9x will support MSU-1, making this less inconvenient in the future.
