I'm trying to summarize this game's capability.
Objects: 60 types with an unexplained "Customize" button. (Screenshot)
Shake variations that I know of: Bill Blaster --> Red Bill Blaster (shoots homing Bullet Bills, or shoot non-Bullet Bills at a high speed) Goomba's Shoe --> goomba's high heel? Koopa Troopa --> Red Koopa Troopa (SMB1) Super Mushroom --> Luigi Mushroom
Modifiers: Super Mushroom + Enemy --> Big enemy (Doesn't seem to work with Bill Blasters) Wing + Enemy or item --> Flying enemy or item (flying Piranha Plant not supported) Stacking enemies, items or Bill Blaster
Theme-dependent: The game physics itself SMB1 Mystery Mushroom (gives costume) / SMB3 Super Leaf / SMW Cape Feather / NSMBU Propeller Mushroom SMB1, SMB3 Goomba's Shoe / SMW, NSMBU Yoshi SMB1, SMW Spike Balls / SMB3 Jelectros

So who else got Super Mario Maker? I got it, made some levels, and uploaded them.
Goomba Underground: 7E5F-OOOO-OO3A-96D9 Bouncy Shell Tower: 2A6D-OOOO-OO3A-A5BO Hammered Clouds: 5O49-OOOO-OO3A-BOOD scratch that, it is now 7341-0000-003D-FEB7 (I edited it a bit and added some SFX effects (light bulbs) to let you know there are invisible blocks above you)
I don't know if the codes use the letter 'O' or the number '0'.
EDIT: Oh, by the way, we are getting a Super Mario Maker stage in SSB4.

Sky Ruins: 298B-0000-0051-07A6
This started out as a high concept, and I just kinda improvised from there. Again, I don't think it's a terribly difficult stage (unless you're bad at jumping), but I think it's an entertaining "journey."
On a side note, I was surprised to discover this morning that my Step By Step stage has a less than 50% completion percentage after 17 attempts. Was it really that hard?
EDIT: Sorry, I meant 17 attempts from nine players.

Yeah, my percentages for both stages have gone down since then.
I honestly feel a little bad when I see that some people never actually finish my stages. They weren't designed to be super difficult (although I'm sure they seem a lot easier to me, the designer, than someone going in blind), so it's basically like a sign that they didn't find my stages that much fun to play.
I mean, frankly, designing a "murder machine" doesn't take that much skill. (I also have no interest in the hands-off "Rube Goldberg" stages that seem to be really popular for some reason.) I'm aiming to make stages that players can enjoy the journey of. If players are unable or unwilling to complete that journey, then that can be seen as a failure on my part.
I did earn my first star today, tho, for the Sky Ruins stage, so someone liked it.

I wuld be more surprised if this took much longer to hit the million mark, even for a Wii U game. It's essentially a file editor (and you don't see synthesizers or BASIC compilers getting mainstream popularity), but it's also considered a main series (kind of) Mario game, and one that lets you make the game's contents yourself at that.
I have currently paused playing Super Mario Maker. I have an idea that mixes costumes and automatic Mario (identity crisis yay!), but clearing the expert levels is simply too demanding. I have to keep resetting until I get a level that isn't too unforgiving.

People will eventually make stages with this costume in it, and players will be curious about it. Better make it available worldwide than making it read-only for overseas players, if you ask me.
They're also accepting submissions of levels for Mr Arino to play live at 22:00 (JP) on 12/12, which can be viewed in Niconico Live and YouTube Live. You have to submit the level first for the level to be eligible, as the submission form asks for the course ID. www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/amaj/arinoplay/index.html

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.
Jul 26, 2020 1:45:06 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.
Jul 26, 2020 8:41:58 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on
Jul 26, 2020 22:04:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.
Aug 2, 2020 23:44:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
