I really, really hate the new Pink Coin update. Not only can you not set how many Pink Coins you need for a key, they also don't work with checkpoints. I've spent ages working on a stage, only to have to delete it, because the checkpoint screws me over when trying to upload it.
I pretty much stopped caring about costumes in general, since unlocking the basic costumes is too much work. 16 incredibly difficult levlls to unlock one costume!? Ugh.
Expert has gotten a lot easier since Super Expert came out.
Yeah, good thing they added another level of difficulty, because while playing on Expert prior to the update, occasionally you'd come across some really neat levels, but having to do 15 other levels, which were generally just fusterclucks or troll levels (I'd always skip a level with even one door leading to an unavoidable death, those levels are cancer to good level design), was too much of a hassle. Also reducing the amount of stages needed to be passed down to six on the final difficulty was a good touch.
Still wish you could share a level to a friend without having to use a computer. I've definitely come across some really neat levels I would have loved to share with my bro.

Yeah you can? In the upper right corner.
You can't put ten coins in the level, put five of them in the main level to unlock a door, and have the other five in the sub-level to unlock another door.
Anyway, I've made some more levels, if anyone's interested...
F98C-0000-01D7-3D58 - Just a minute... 4A37-0000-01E0-6553 - Big Mario takes to the sky 1DA8-0000-01E9-DED9 - Nintendo Quiz (Turn comments on) BF1E-0000-01F2-2187 - Going the wrong way D2CB-0000-0215-637C - Spike Pillar Castle
Please don't forget to star if you liked any of them.
Them were some pretty good levels, though I still have some gripes with that last one. I'll try finishing it later. As for myself, I've only really tweaked both my levels and made one new one. If anyone's interested:
I also want to share some stages I found either really interesting or really fun:
~アカヘビ~akahebi: EFCA-0000-01C-BF69 Really great use of the editor, definitely haven't thought of uses like this Mansion Escape: 9358-0000-0097-20C1 Been meaning to make a stage like this one, maybe with a Zelda Dunegon theme Power-Up Puzzle Palace: BD32-0000-0067-CA07 Another one of those stages that feel like an overworld, but with puzzles

Sure is unexpected to see him here. I thought we'd lost him forever, what with no new game since 2008.
...What, are these things becoming the new Smash Bros. now?
It's great to see him back and all of the first three Game Boy Advance titles are now on Japanese Wii U Virtual Console.
Densetsu no Stafy - July 29, 2015 Densetsu no Stafy 2 - March 26, 2016 Densetsu no Stafy 3 - April 6, 2016
Starfy's appearance may have been a promotion for the recent Densetsu no Stafy 2 Virtual Console release and it seems interesting that Densetsu no Stafy 3 was released so shortly after.
I'd personally love to see Nintendo release the fifth game (The Legendary Starfy) that was only released in Japan, North America and Oceania for Europe via Wii U VC if they can, and re-release it in North America, Oceania. I feel that would be a great way for Nintendo to breath life back into the series outside of Japan, and the activity, as well as the positive Starfy reception has suddenly given me a lot more hope that Nintendo may release a new game.
The diversity of Costume Marios is interesting and I personally love it, with characters like Barbara the Bat, Chibi-Robo, Donbe, Hikari, Mallo, the unique Super Mario Maker mascots and popular media costumes not originating from video games (per se).
Speaking of characters originating outside video games... I really would love to see Captain N, Princess Lana, Duke, and Game Boy... and of course video game characters like Simon Belmont, King Hippo, Eggplant Wizard, and even Mother Brain (because why not?).
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

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.
