New Super Mario Bros. Community Remix was a dream, and now it is ruined. Nobody really cares about this, and nobody seems to be willing to contribute.

Almost every single ROM hacking boards out there have a community remix hack. Why don't we, NSMBHD, have one? I myself is looking forward to finishing this project, but there seems to be no motivation in the community to finish this. I am willing to make a few levels and continue this great, ambitious project. Why aren't everybody else?

I am suggesting to trash everything we have done so far in the past few years and restart. Reasons:
  1. All of our level designs have improved.
  2. As the release of Newer DS happened just now, the NSMBCR is completely crappy compared to Newer.
  3. We all know more about this game.
  4. Great ASM hacks are released, including the preview screens and actor spawner.
  5. Probably even more.

What we have to do:
  1. Select a leader to supervise the progress. Probably a staff member who visits and posts frequently.
  2. Request people to create levels, tilesets and backgrounds. Motivate people by offering rewards, such as a virtual badge.
  3. Tell people about it. Uploading videos to YouTube, posting in Misc. ROM hacking sections on Kuribo64, Horizon Wii and Red Hat Cafe may help.

Q&A:
  1. We do not have enough people. How can we make it?
    We can tell more people. Millions of people play SMBX, we can tell them.
  2. How about quality control?
    We can first collect levels without control, then select the levels by polls and elections.

I really hope we can bring this project back to life. Thanks for reading.

Yet another reboot won't help this either.

I think the posts you are refering to were no legit "reboots". Everyone just said "yep. this is dead, right?" but (as far as I know) no real reboot was made.
And honestly, I think this is sad because the community remix is such a great idea.
The problem is, i don't think we should trash everything because of the work done.

But: If this is the only possibility of somehow reviveving this CR, then that is what we have to do.
And if we decide to restart, we really should clean up the "old" community Remix (i have literally no idea how i should find something there) and we need a moderator or something like that.

If the people here think that we can somehow restart this and people want to, i can make a ToDo list of what has to be done. (levels and music also)
Oh yeah, and we should use some deadlines. If we let the reboot die just a little bit, it will completely die again

Maybe for some more people to join. We can do a Community Remix with only three or four people. But this wouldn't be a legit COMMUNITY remix.
Also we need someone with more power than a regular user because we can't do a remix including discussion, tileset, asm, levels, music, ... in one single thread. This would make the biggest mess ever and no one could keep track

Due to the fact that 4 people voted for a reboot and 2 against I'm wondering what the other active people think about this.
If you don't want a reboot, then tell us or vote against one. Or say I don't care what happens but with only six votes we can't say if a reboot is possible and wanted by the community.

Maybe there's a lot of people that would like a reboot but don't have the time/inspiration/motivation to participate in it.

I voted for reboot but keep some things we already have. Why should we get rid of progress, no matter how little it is?

Those might be reasons why some people don't say anything about the CR Reboot no.4 or no.5.

But:

Time: If enough people would help making the CR come to life again, noone would have to spend incredible amounts of time.
If all active people would help, the average hacker would have to make less than 2 levels. If we keep the levels that were already made this number would go down a little (not to 1 per person because there are not enough active ppl around)

I can't actually say something against inspiration or motivation because those are personal reasons noon can argument for or against.
Just hoping that some more consider reviving the CR because I still believe in it. The idea of it is awesome and I'm sure that (if enough people help) we can make this real once and for all.

>all active people
not a lot of people. you can't count half of the "seemingly" active people in because of either circumstances, being temporary member that will only appear once and vanish forever, or doesn't feel like doing shit.

also you need coordination if you want people to actually make shit.

Edit: also the only resource we could use is levels.. the tilesets weren't great and rather restricted.

Why don't we start over? Get fresh Tilesets and music and other things from the Uploads Section?

staplebutter@blargcity:~$ restart restart: permission denied


in a more serious note

restarting is more than just saying 'hey let's restart this'

Really? That's not what the Community Remix was about. Just reusing what's already made doen't make a great hack.

I don't get the point in trashing what we have. The existing tilesets and levels are all pretty good and it would be sad to just put them to waste for no reason. I don't see what's stopping us to build upon what we already have. If the tilesets are too restricted, what's stopping us to add what's needed in them.

You have a point. Or if we did start fresh, we could use some of the materials (tilesets and other graphics) from the old community remix levels.

Yes. We probably won't keep EVERYTHING, just some things from the old CR. We could also probably use a bunch (but probably not all) of the old remix levels. It would be a big waste to trash the progress we have.
Also I volunteer for making 2 or 3 levels. I probably won't make any tilesets for it tho because I'm not so good at art .

the thing is, pretty much all the old levels are good. I don't think they need to be remade. I'd volunteer to make a few levels as well, that said.

I can make one or two. I don't want to take much away from other users
