People knew 72dpi for SMWar...I guess that's why 72 died -- SMWar's progress is halted (?)

No, what it needs is a new finished project that will attract people.

If megaman 72 ever gets done it could mean a revival for this place.

Really though any bigger project done could bring people here.

Seeing as SMWar isn't making any progress at the moment I'd assume this would be the only solution.

Unless we can somehow generate a good forum without a central reason for having one, which seeing in recent history doesn't look like it'd work too well.

Not halted, It just isn't attractive anymore. Progress is extremely slow and Two52 basically works in complete silence until he's ready to post a new release, which generally contains a lot of features that were in very low demand and very few if any features in high demand (AKA online play) so most of the people that were interested in the past have lost interest. Two52's quietness about the project, coupled with the fact that the original creator is dead and most websites with SMWar downloads still list 1.6 as the latest version (hell, even OUR main site still lists 1.7 AFE as the latest version) makes it very easy for someone to think the project is dead, even though it isn't. The one website that knew SMW was still being updated (and they may not anymore) is MFGG, who are pretty much completely uninterested in it.

The whole project has become a big waste of time that could be used to make other things. 72dpi hasn't been able to survive as "the official Super Mario War website" since 1.7. It's time to pull the plug on SMWar and focus on something else. And this time, we can't just let Two52 do everything.

Also I personally think fangames are a bad thing to rely solely on. They rarely have the attractiveness of even the less popular original indie games. You might argue that MFGG is at least active, but really most of the people there just blindly defend Nintendo (or Valve, depending on what forum you go to) and post :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: :SVH: and pay no attention to the actual fangames.
