Before sending a hack,
you must understand the following things:
- Your hack must be good. If I were to accept every hack sent,
the archive would become pointless in that people would have to
wade through a lot of bad stuff to find the odd gem. I've drawn
up some guidelines, and personal discretion will be used if the
hack falls just short.
- To qualify:
Graphical: all level palettes changed, at least some custom sprites
and/or level art.
Technical: something unique - a musical hack, level porting, etc.
Gameplay: at least some level palettes changed, and some level
- Exceptions: if a game has few available hacks or little in the
way of hacking notes, any hack is accepted.
- The hack doesn't have to be your own! Send in any hacks you
find, but remember to include crediting information!
- The hack must have a name.
These measures will ensure that your hack is added. Please
don't feel bad if your hack does not make the cut - I used to
have a couple here that are no longer listed, because they do
not meet the guidelines. If the hack doesn't go in, visit the
hacking guides on SSRG, use the tools, and hang around the message
board to get some tips. Once the hack has improved, send it
again and check out if it's gotten in.
Now that you've read the guidelines, SEND
And thank you very much for your contributions. They keep this
Have fun hacking!
