    Hey everyone.

    So I was thinking of constructing a map skin based around the quite well-known SMB1 ROM hack Extra Mario Bros, a hack that plays very similarly to Metroid with it's very non-linear gameplay style and upgrades system.

    Some time ago I ripped nearly every tile from EMB for the Mari0 community and had since then also ripped the ? blocks and extracted the enemy graphics via YY-CHR.

    I was considering making this into a skin for SMBC, and if I do go through with it, it'd be my first major skin contribution (aside from SMBS PC-88).

    I say this is an incredibly perfect idea, and I would've done it had I been able to even run the damn thing.
    You should totally go for it.

    You can contribute to certain aspects of the project; I wanted it to be more of a group thing.

    Oh well when you put it that way.[​IMG]
    Here's a fairly comfortable start on the map skin. I'd have a bit more if I could make a single lick of sense out of that spriteset up there.

    Off to a good start. I'll work on fixing any flubs and adding more to the skin. I do like the idea of making the background plants from Area 2 the vines.

    As for the player skin, it's SML2 Mario but with a different color palette, though I'm sure a lot of us know. :)

    If anyone here happens to use the Mac OSX version of NEStopia, I have a bit of a treat for you.

    This savestate will get you all six upgrades and all eight keys in possession, along with most of the hidden 1UPs in the game.
    Also, a map. Not a perfect 100% accurate layout to what's actually in the game, but unlike the official maps, this one maps out the secret rooms and locations of keys and upgrades.
