Hi folks,

just discovered this great compilation done by Zandro.
So I scanned all my Good, NonGood, no intro sets and downloaded everything on this 49 pages thread but still missing a very small amount of hacks (less than 100).

Can anyone give me this gift for Christmas.

Thanks a lot and merry christmas to all.

Phil

Happy New Year, everyone! :)


I've uploaded the "complete" set as of 20161222 in two types:

I) raw (*.sfc) in 7z:
[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login [863 MB]
The 7z archive is small but be warned: When extracted, the files will take 38.3 GB of your HDD!!

II) all games separately zipped:
[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login [4.0 GB]
[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login [4.0 GB]
[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login [1.4 GB]

PW for both archives is "zandro@romshepherd".


@Zandro

I've included a txt file called "Dats = WIP! Visit the 'SMW Hacks' thread for updates! (URL in this document)" with the URL to this thread.
Furthermore, all folders/ROMs are in a parent directory called "Dats created and maintained by romshepherd member 'Zandro'!".
If you're still not okay with my upload, just let me know and I'll remove the links (read something a "few" pages back some time ago).

Well, your tip-toeing is understood and I appreciate the references made.  I wanted to be caught up with a contest's results first, but the numbers haven't been released yet.  Ultimately, I intend the naming of the roms in GoodSNES to be aligned with mine. Once at that point, I will freely consider it out of my hands.

If you have SMW hacks not known in the dat, I would like them shared in the most unmanipulated form you can muster.  I will try to add them to the dat, but I need enough information about them to avoid marking Unknown.

The creation of SMW hacks will never come to an end or am I wrong? So I assumed this thread would be something like a life-time project? :p

3 years ago, I mirrored the SMWC user upload area and shared the raw collection with a few productive members.  Almost a year later, jerry2600 took an extra step and mass generated ~3000 roms from the IPS's in the collection, and you saw them posted for NonGoodSNES [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login  Frankly, I was alarmed by the lack of further refinement, and knew that because I was the only person able to reference all of the data from that time, I probably should do something about the mess to keep all from becoming lost.

My info gathering [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login over time, and I had to get an SSD just to keep up with the million elements I was ripping on the side.  I can compare deep hashes, boss text, credit scrolls, GFX/ExGFX, internal cart names, intro text, level names, lock status, message box text, separate level layers, level images, overworld images, palettes, title screens, etc.  Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't.  An author or date can't always be determined unless a source link is given, so it's hard not to feel cheated every time one isn't.

I've put enough work into this that I will never expect someone else to continue as I have, so yes, it would have to be life-long, but I'm not interested in that.  This snowballed far beyond the initial 3000 I felt responsible for.  Continuing to dat all other SMW hacks was impractical, but inevitable if all relationships were to be ascertained.  My biggest flaw during this was to never auto-download new submissions and meta from SMWC, as I know many of the gaps in the info would have been filled otherwise.  Asking the site admin was also fruitless.  Oh well.
