I hope someday someone makes a tool that let's you drag & drop enemies and tiles into a SMB level, like a beginners' SMB Editor without all that confusing "moving boxes without adding/removing" crap, sometimes breaking the map entirely if you do it wrong, which SMB Utility has. Just something more user-friendly with features SMB utility doesn't have, like a better GUI, background editing, and the ability to apply special patches via the editor through a checklist that enable stuff like hitting ? and brick blocks underwater, or additional objects like SMB2J's items, pipes from above, better rope/vine climbing, bumper/conveyor blocks like in that one demonstration hack, or heck, even auto scrolling. There's just so much SMB1 could be made to do but ROMhacking.net has nothing that enables enough freedom to make it feel like the editor used in a fangame like Mari0, sometimes thanks to the limited RAM.
Hmm... many of those Arkanoid hacks look pretty good. I gotta make sure to try them out.
Thanks. I tried to make the Arkanoid hacks look like something professionally-made, since a lot of the older Arkanoid hacks on this site (no offense) are of quite poor quality IMO, with either poor level design or not opting to alter anything aside from the CHR bank, not even changing the palettes!
