Final scores are updated.

Anyone with any ideas for the next challenge?

Some sort of mushroom hill level that REQUIRES a certain amount of slopes (10 perhaps).

I think it should be some sort of theme that requires a castle or tower type level.

Okay, the new challenge is "The Castle on the Hill"

Requirements: The level start with a grassland tileset (area 1), and one tileset must use the castle tiles. If someone wants to make a special tileset that has all the graphics for the grassland, but also has some outside castle tiles, and can share it, that would be awesome. For the grassland area, the castle entrance must be at least two full blocks higher than the block where Mario starts the level.

I will post the thread for this contest later. This one is a little confusing, so to prevent any "that's not fair" discussion later, be sure to ask questions now.

Question:
We are again allowed to do graphical changes to our ROM files, if they are working for all, right? Are we also allowed to use a 3nd Area? Has to be a boss-fight in this level?

Sorry for taking my time with this, but I've been working on a tileset that I want the contest participants to use. It will be done by the end of the weekend. If you've already started your level, don't worry. The tileset is intended to replace the default Grasslands tileset, and if you import this over it, the original tiles remain.

Great

I hope it includes far more useful blocks than the original grassland has, such as different slopes, etc

Making this tileset is taking a little longer than I thought it would, so in the meantime, there's a new quick weekend contest!

The challenge is to make a bonus room... You have to download a patch I uploaded, and then edit one area. You can't edit most of the stuff in the area, mostly only the tiles and sprites. Since you're only editing one room, this challenge shouldn't take too long to complete or to critique.

It ends on Tuesday, and critiques will only run until Thursday night.

If you have any questions, ask them in this thread.

Yeah, probably not. Maybe I should just stop the contests. I dont think people are that into them anymore.

I think that you should still have them but with more of a requirement and a much longer time to make the level.
eg: 1 World due at Christmas , critiques due in February.
Also From December to February is a GREAT time to do contests, no homework .

I could make a challenge which were you have to/must know all hidden actions of mario
Every hidden action...when he is MINI, MEGA, TURTLE, SUPER

For example the "super-wallkick" as SUPER/FLOWER

Here are my suggestion you could probably use:
A Cave of Ice full of water?
A Kaizo type level?
A really bad level that is a piece of crap and unenjoyable, where this time, you have to try to get the LEAST amount of points?
A Level with a lot of Flowing Lava and Exploding Volcanoes? (I like those sorts of levels)
Perhaps a Journey to the Center of the Earth? (you start somewhere above the ground and work your way down, ending your journey somewhere in a place full of lava)
A Sky Cave? (Cave in the Sky)
Floating Land? (Don’t choose this one, the last thing I need is to play a level with a whole load of random crap floating in mid-air)
A Maze?
Maybe a Mini-Mario challenge?
And those are my suggestions

Sounds very interesting. Reminds me of those movies about it.
But, you should probably put this off to like winter time, or next summer, because we're probably going to need a lot of time on this.
Plus, we should wait for the newer revisions to become more stable, because there's some stuff in the new ones that might be nice to have.
