i doubt it for the time being, basically because we don't want to waste the time right now when blahblah is coming up.

just keep your hopes up.

So there was an old forum? Why did you chance?!

Did the SMW creator program the whole game engine?

technically it was an old forum. it really was just a change to phpbb3 from 2.  That change got rid of a lot of custom skins that some user (including me) liked to use. But this will only be the format of the forum for so long, because Florian, the founder of SMWar and the forum, is working on a new thing called BlahBlah, which will become the new forum for us.

also for your second question, i do not know for sure, but i do know that there are more than just one person working on the game nowadays, but mainly it is Two52, one of the founding administers, who is coding the game, while the others just port it over (thanks to jim for helping me with that ;) ) . When it was first made, however, i don't have a clue about the number of people working on it and whether they made an entirely new code for the game or built off the old Mario War, which is what this game was made after.

Recently discovered this series, but have a question...

Is this recent 1.8 edition entirely Halloween related...

...Or...

...is it just the latest release with the most up to date gameplay that was released around Halloween which also includes some holiday content?

Thank you in advance for any help.

The true most recent 1.8 release can be found here.

What you are talking about is the Halloween mod made by several members of the forum, which just happened to have post 1.8 beta 1 code in it. The Halloween mod is not an official beta release (if it was, it would be in the Super Mario War forum, not fanmade content).

So the Halloween edition is the official release with everything modified into a Halloween theme?

No, it isn't.

To clarify, volzzilla, the Halloween edition is a mod to the actual game, containing changes to the graphics, sound, etc. Version 1.8 was released separately, and the Halloween was released as a mod for smw.

Had to dig around the Internet Archive, but I found the old description:

72dpiwhat? 72 dpi army. 72 dpi is the common screen resolution on your PC/laptop monitor. And we fight for your digital pleasure. Sometimes.
