I've been quite busy with College recently... To hell with it. I can make time for an old hobby of mine. Count me in. I might make this one with SMBX 2, that'll mean learning how that works though I've been a 1.3 purist since it came out so many years ago.

=Contest Results in Order of Participation=
SVLC 2016: 17th/42 (Simple Wood Level - 6.07)
Downwards Level Contest: 6th/6 (*I don't remember the level name or score.) (Currently my greatest failure as a level designer.)
Super Community Contest: ?th/46 (Rhedoht Woods) (Disqualified for broken submission. RIP me. =\)

Few questions:

-It would be okay to submit the project I've been trying to finish for a really long time, right?

-Do all the judges have fairly decent machines? My level is somewhat demanding on CPU (and maybe GPU depending on how glDraw works)

-The level uses a custom checkpoint system with the same method as multipoints for checking if it was the last level entered. Is there anything in the hub world that might interfere with this?

Question: How the bloody hell do you make SMBX struggle to run in 2018? What did you DO?

Ok, started my level yesterday, sure 99,999% that I'll do even the least better than SCC.

Depends on how much you're using glDraw. Should be fine though. Checkpoint system sounds fine as well

You've probably already grouped the draw calls to as few as possible, right? One per texture is generally less expensive than one per object per texture and might save you some performance.
glDraw is demanding on CPU, for the record.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

Most of my glDraw calls are either from particles.lua or need to be able to have separate priorities.

Didn't you say your old machine had trouble with the boss in "He's Back"? That one never gets much past 33% on the profiler lag graph for me, but my level gets up into the 40-50% range occasionally.

Ahh particles hm. Yes my old pc had lag with He's Back, but only while also recording, so don't worry about that. Sadly this also means I have no idea how much profiler sage would be the actual limit for my old machine. I do remember getting lag in a level with three seperate snow emitters that draw all the time and have a maximum of 150 particles each, though, FWIW. I know Waddle's PC at least didn't lag in that scenario.

assuming you mean a standalone level by "project" then yes. (there's no rule that everything has to be started from scratch, it just must not have been published before)

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Aye, I definitely have time for this. Maybe you've heard, but a snowstorm unlike any I've seen in my life has gripped pretty much all of Europe. Playing in deep snow for the first time in nearly 10 years felt guuud.
