I'm pretty sure One Screen Wonder will make an appearance at some point.

Matt, you could check your Gamepad button functionality by:

> Opening the web browser on your Wii U
> Navigate to this link: https://www.nintendo.com/wiiu/built-in- ... cs/sample/
> Press the buttons and see the responses!

It's quite a handy wee tool.

I'll try this later. But it might not show anything. At points in Zelda I'd have the GamePad on the floor when using the Pro and it would keep on interfering with things. Best stick me on the list with a question mark. I don't want to spend most of my time arguing with the pad.

Sign ups are now closed!!

Thanks for the signups guys. I'll be looking to give out the first weeks brief in the next few days, so keep an eye on the thread for details.

I'll also be deciding if we'll have one large group or two smaller ones. I'm leaning towards one, which will minimise the impact of any dropouts.

I'm also considering making the contest a little shorter, maybe four or six weeks of group levels before we start eliminations.

Stay tuned over the next day or two for updates!!

Just to say that, if anyone is thinking of joining in but are worried that "they may not be good enough"... don't worry! The competition is focussed on having a laugh and seeing what ideas people come up with. It's great!

Thanks for your patience everyone, but signups are now officially closed. I'll be looking to announce the group's later on tonight along with the first set of guidelines to get you all started.

Not sure what time I'll get them up but it will be tonight. Count on it.

Welcome one and all to NEW Are You A Master Mario Maker.

A brand new contest for 2018 and a final farewell to the Wii U.

So, without further ado, here are our Makers!

No new participants, and a drop from the last contest but that's to be expected given that so many have moved onto the Switch now.


With this in mind the contest will only have ONE group this time around. This means that any dropouts won't leave us with unbalanced groups anymore.
We will also be running 5 weeks of normal level making, at which time we shall once more split into a Winners and Losers bracket. Losers bracket will make a final level to determine their overall placements. In the Winners bracket one more level is made and the top two makers go through to the Grand Final.

So, what is your first assignment?

Image
As is tradition, we start with a relatively straight forward brief. I want a level that makes special use of Goombas, Koopas and Bills. These can just be used as normal enemies, or you might want to do something more interesting with them. This doesn't mean you can't use other enemies, but these three should be the main focus. You may use any game style but I would request that you stick to "standard" level templates. No Ghost Houses, Airships, Water Levels etc. Castles, Overworld or Underworld are what I would be looking for. These are some of the simplest and most iconic of all the enemies that Mario faces so it's up to you to do something fun with them.


You have until 8pm Sunday 18th February to submit your levels to me.
Levels should be submitted to me via PM, not posted in the thread.
As with the previous contest I want to be provided with the Name of the level, the Code for the level and the link to the Super Mario Bookmark page for the level.
https://supermariomakerbookmark.nintendo.net/

Once I have posted the levels in the thread you may start voting for them. As before you will have until 8pm the following Sunday to submit your votes, ranking the levels from 1st to last.

I know we are all aware of this rule by now, but I want to reiterate it before we go any further. Every person who is submitting levels for the contest, must also submit votes for everyone elses levels. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of all points for that week. Don't get caught out people.


But most of all I want everyone to have fun!

Remember and join me on the GRcade Twitch channel at 9pm on Sunday night for our AYAMM Retrospective Stream, where I'll be playing some of my favourite levels from the last two contests. If anyone has any requests then let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Then next Sunday join me for the Grand Launch stream and the very first submission stream!

Have fun everyone!

Oh and my plan is to keep the 2nd post on page 1 up to date with the guidelines and submitted levels, so you only have to look there to see what's going on.
