Super Mario War / Re: Netplay General Discussion

Sorry for the late reply, I just noticed your post! Unfortunately, there wasn't much progress, because of both real life and technical issues and, well, I guess I'm a bit burned out after all this time :/

The netplay works, at least somewhat: a few people have tested it, some have reported that it works well, but personally I'm still not pleased with it. I have tried various methods to reduce the lag, but in practice its still noticeable. Then there's another problem, that the game tends to desync on network issues (eg. data packet loss). This could be fixed by making sure every packet gets received properly, but this feature would also increase the lag. Both of these problems occur because the game source code was not designed for networking, so if even one variable gets a wrong value, it can have effects on completely unrelated parts of the gameplay code (kind of butterfly effect).

Anyway, I'll upload the latest version tonight, so you could try it out. I'd be happy to hear what do you guys think.

Hey bherdm, there have been a ton of remakes made for SMW but your best bet to get the game is off of by clicking the "Get Game" in the upper right hand side of the page. This is where you will find the 1.8 beta 2 version of the game, which I'd assume is the latest official release.

fluffypillow was making a netplay version awhile back (who also created the new site linked above), but it has been awhile since I've kept tabs on this. It may or may not be completed, but you could try and search for that version too if its available.

Hope this helps!

Somehow I'm just discovering Super Mario War, and it sounds like a great time! However, the download links are all dead on the site ( After a quick look through the forum (and thorough reading of the rules  ;)) I can see there's some rewrites of the game, an alpha version, and I'm just a little confused about what I'm even looking for!

What's the best version of the game to play for Windows and where can I find it? Thanks!

fluffypillow, how is progress? Is there a thread yet specifically for your build? Do you take requests?
Super Mario War Fanmade Content / Space Harrier Announcer
« Last post by Yagtazir on September 17, 2016, 07:24:36 PM »
I had the files for the PS2 version of Space Harrier lying around (I think I was going to make him an announcer in some MUGEN?), and he was the first thing that came to my mind after re-installing this game and seeing you could use announcers. I don't know what worth this is to you, but hopefully you can get some giggles from his phrases... or feel kinda awesome. I know I did. For extra effect use "spacey-looking" guys like Megaman and Dig Dug.

General Discussion / 10 Years in 72dpiarmy and Memories

It's hard to believe today, 10 years ago, I joined 72dpiarmy. Here are some that I remember from my first 10 years:

1. My first suggestion: Make Super Mario War easier to download for those struggling with dial-up (by dividing files into categorized portions)
2. "Ban Jarviar" signatures all over the forum
3. Avatar contest
4. Starting my gallery here
5. Shenanigans with Link901, MC Jimmy, Gadouken, Chiisu, etc.
6. Hosting SMW Skinpak Contest
7. Florian's passing (many of you can relate, I'm sure)

For those who stayed around for about a decade, if you like, share your memories here! ^_^
