Before posting a thread, make sure it complies with the following rules:

Conditions to make a thread in New hacks:

  1. You do not need to provide a download link to a demo of your hack. Your decision whether or not to release a demo will be respected, but it cannot be approved to NSMB Hacks until at least one world is available for download.
  2. There must be:
    • A good description of the hack.
    • Good quality Screenshots.
      • Update - 16/05/2017 - "I will post screenshots later" is not a valid excuse for ignoring the rules!
    • One or more good quality videos. If someone cannot provide a video for hardware reasons, screenshots will have to do.
    • Update - 13/11/2016 - Any hacks with the 'Newer' title will henceforth be trashed on principle.


Threads that do not comply with these rules will be deleted.

Conditions to be approved and moved to NSMB Hacks:

  1. It MUST have at least 1 COMPLETE WORLD AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD.
  2. The hack should meet a minimum quality criteria:
    • Good level design. Levels should be fun to play.
    • Completely original levels. Levels that look like the original levels are not acceptable.
    • Absolutely no glitched or broken graphics or tiles.

  3. A patch file available for download.


When you post your hack, it'll be reviewed by the board staff. If it's good enough, it will be moved to the NSMB Hacks forum. Otherwise, you'll be given a critique explaining how to improve your hack and you can update it and request review again in your thread.

Nah, I just want to keep this forum interesting. I don't want it to be full of threads like "Hey look I'm going to make this awesome hack, here's a screenshot of the first level". It's quite disappointing.

Also there's a fact that if they have something to release it shows dedication. Dedication = Higher Possibility of Completion.
I usually wait for the final versions of any hack before downloading. But seeing as there are only 2 Finished NSMB Hacks currently (one of them my own) I've had to make exceptions.
New Super Mario Bros.: Clone Tag Team 1+2 / New Super Mario Advance + Take 2 / Super Mario: Endless Earth (Coming Soon!)

If you use the dump .avi function in DeSmuMe, video will always be outputted at full speed. The speed of your computer won't effect the final recording at all.

I tried that once, but it made my computer lag so much it took me an hour to film a 2 minute clip. Additionally, it was several Gigabytes in size...

Try using different codecs with different settings. Just play around with the options.

Also try record a movie file (dsm) first to record the level faster and in a smaller file, then play the dsm and record the avi. That way you will have less slowdown while playing.

Yea, you have to choose a good codec becaus if not, the resulting video file is huge and the computer lags because it has to write soo much data to disk.

If you choose a codec you'll solve your both problems

I updated the first post to include all rules in one, and to make it clearer and shorter.
Suggestions welcome.

Yes you can.
Go to the Misc. ROM hacking forum section near the bottom of the main forum list.
This rules here are only for NSMB hacks.

Just a note to  MarioFanatic64: new hack threads do not require trailers. They simply require at least one video. You're trying to enforce a rule that does not exist.

Having no trailer is BAD


He simply says it´s bad to have no one.

That's true. But not everyone is good at making trailers...
Maybe there should be a rule like:
'You must have at least one trailer OR ... screenshots.'
