SMW is NOT dead! Call at arms for new development :)
« on: April 22, 2013, 06:11:52 PM »
Hi guys/girls

I have just discovered SMW and would like to ping all active users and developers.

What is the status of this project?

What are the biggest problems?

And what the new ideas?

I already have some code changes to improve the support on Linux and I have contacted the developers to ask to merge them. Furthermore, I have a few ideas to revive this game ;)

Update 24 April 2013: I am operating on 2 fronts, first is codebase, to improve it and make it more usable, second is user-made content. Not only we need to recover most of the lost content but also have a good and reliable way to keep it online in future

Both fronts are very important!! So please help me :)

P.S. I am doing already good progress on the code front, but there is A LOT of work left

I wish you the best of luck with this Neagix. I missed SMW's prime, and only found the forum as you see it now. Unfortunately, I know diddly squat about coding. Is there some way laymen can help with your revival?

Yes! Everybody can help with something. When I will have a testable version I will need help at testing and bug reporting, before that it is very important that we collect all the fan-made content!

For example I have this list, that would be a nice to-have:

Super Sonic War (SMW 1.6 only)
Super Metroid War
NES Mario War
Custom Mario War
Super Mario War 8-Bit
BS Super Mario War 2007
"The Kirby Mod"
Super Mario Warld III
Super Mario War: Halloween Edition

So if you can find and re-up some of these, that would be already a great addition!

I'm glad there are people still trying to keep this game alive. It really gives me a lot of hope. I loved coming to this site when I was younger and it's sad to see it all wither away. I just wish I could do something to contribute.
Oh, I`m supposed to put something here? Waffles.=3

If you guys accomplish something with this, how will you manage to advertise it? This forum is pretty much dead as much as I hate to admit it.

As soon as I have something working and to show off, you will see how community will be interested in this ;)

Shape follows content, no need to worry about the dead forums - you will see

Probably shouldn't post this here, as I don't want to get people's hopes up. But I've started a remake of SMW a couple of weeks ago.

You can check the progress here: http://www.exasm.net/

It's very much in alpha stage and won't be released for a long while, so I've got pretty much nothing yet ;) .

As of now, I've got a working (online) multiplayer and it's supporting Windows and Android as of now.

The final version probably won't include any mario at all though, as I don't want problems with the almighty Nintendo.

Let's join efforts, at least for the new graphics, I also will not make any release with copyrighted content.
