Sorry for the rant but I'm getting tired of this bullshit, so I'm going to post this once and we'll end it at that. It's only a joke hack, stop getting so triggered over it. If you don't want anything to do with it, why are you posting in this thread?

Real talk though: yes I think this hack is digusting. Not going to explain why, doing so would just get me more "lol you're upset" responses that would ignore anything I might have to say.

Okay, so here's something for you. You don't have to play it. You also don't have to keep on shit posting in this thread because somehow you think you are totally allowed to do that?

But really what annoys me the most about this is how representative this is of the problems with this year's hacking contest and how you all don't seem to notice it. You all blame the hacking contest being a shitshow this year on the people submitting content to you, while making garbage that stinks even worse than the shit you're complaining about. People will forget those shitty joke hacks, but this is something that just makes people legitimately uncomfortable. And while you are all laughing cause lol people are getting triggered, less people are going to check out the contest because of it.

It's a fucking ROM hack. Are parodies only allowed when select people work on them? Because that's the feeling I get from you.

And you know, people probably wouldn't have that much of a problem with this hack being a thing if it just came from some random idiot trying to be edgy. But no, it comes from the people running the damn thing, sending the message that you all are total pieces of shit who'd be willing to insult their visitors and spit them in the face for the situation they're in.

Double standards much?

Don't be shocked if the contest gets even less coverage next year because you all decided to continue doing this kind of shit.

Don't threaten us. We have extensive plans for media coverage next year, much better than last year. We're going to properly ensure that people signed up for media duties will do their part and not forget about us completely or no-show in favour of something else.

And we have extensive plans for the 2017 Contest which has rules which will effectively stop joke hacks from being judged. But you wouldn't know that, because you aren't part of that circle.

And if you have any problem with what I've said, you know where to find me privately...don't throw the dummy out like you did last time with something I said. We used to be cool, Tim.

I'm not threatening you. I'm also not talking about how I personally view this. I'm talking about how people will react to your bullshit.

Like, yeah, people don't need to play this. But that's not going to stop them from thinking you're assholes for making it.

@Xeal: Your last point is kind of...fallacious don't you think? Spanner and SuperEgg, at least, are Trump supporters. Rather than being "bothered" by this, wouldn't it be the opposite in at least their cases?

I mean this is stupid in general though.

@Spanner: Are you...asking for a safe space :v:. Just as you're asking Timmit to just take a joke, I have to ask you to just take his criticism. Some people don't think a Trump presidency is a joking matter, after all.

If you don't want people triggered, then you should've kept this joke to yourselves. Or shared it on r/the_donald! I mean honestly what did you think was gonna happen by you guys sharing this on Retro of all places?

I mean jesus this thread and everything in it is stupid.

Haha are you talking to me? What is the litmus test for "whining" exactly? Cause these days anything that's not full-blown approval seems like it's construed as whining :v:

I'm happy for you about your new avatar though. It looks good on you.

These days what? These days you can't say anything funny because some guy who knows where may be in a small probability offended who knows why. I feel that it's happening just the opposite that you're telling me. That's why I love these jokes that cares a damn about all the people that may be sligthy offended somehow.

To answer your question, what do I mean with whining? Exactly what's happening.

Thanks for the compliment sweetie.

Haha what you're not making any sense. I thought it was pretty clear that I was asking if you're accusing me of whining, and you took something I said and spun off on a tangent about something that makes little sense, and finished with saying that exactly "what's happening" is what you mean by whining.

I mean I know English isn't your first language but I haven't read a post that confusing in a long time. So let me break it down for you like this.

For the third time, this whole fucking thread is dumb as shit. I don't care about the dumbass hack or it's dumbass jokes, and I think the reactions on both ideological sides of this are acting dumb. This is just a cauldron of dumb. A cornucopia of stupid.

I am ecstatic to receive an honourary sombrero. Profile picture updated!

If you haven't already said so, what was the "Main feature" you didn't implement?

I find it funny how you suddenly think people being assholes is a bad thing, but never did a single thing to prevent people from shitting up IRC some months ago.

Perhaps you need a safe space?

This thread is still stupid.

But it's getting the interesting kind of stupid now.

I made a mistake not doing more about that back then. And much like this, I think people are right to be pissed about the way the people running the thing (including me back then) were acting.

(Let's not make this topic about what happened back then though, that's really not necessary)

This paragraph alone shows how fucking little you know about the contest and the general populace.

For starters, if you think this hack stinks more than the others submitted, then you're fucking delusional and probably means you didn't actually play it. The only reason you don't like it is because it is Trump themed in nature, and thus means it isn't worth the time of playing because once again, "lol politcs." Fucking hate to say it, and I don't want to toot my own horn, this hack has literally all the shit we were looking for.

New level art: Check
New comprehensive layouts that have multiple pathways that have goodies through the upper and lower paths and convened back to the center path towards the end: Check
New badnik art: Check...sorta, I mean adding sombreros to badniks is not technically hard to do, but it definitely isn't easy either =V

Reading through the chats when this was being presented, there were a few people weary of the hack, because lol politics. However, a good majority enjoyed the humor of it because sombreros on enemies is fucking hysterical. Hell, the only reason I decided to finish it was because I've had a number of people ask if they could play it. So, I did a final build in Sonic 1 before I migrated to my own custom S2B disasm, and then let you people run wild with it.

Now, as far as people not coming back in droves next year? You're a fucking dumbass if you honestly believe a one off joke hack can just kill a number of people returning. This thing was shown on three, maybe four streams at most, and this is what defines the contest? A harmless hack that apparently awakens the white guilt in people, as I'm yet to find any Latinos offended.

I've had SonicBoom, who is half-Mexican and the guy who designed said sombrero sprites and Trump screen, let various people in his family play this, no complaints. Hell, most can't stop laughing. I've let various people on campus of Latino decent play this, and I've made sure they're the biggest Democrats around to ensure no biased opinions are formed, and guess what? Most found it funny, or meh at best. Offensive? It has a Trump screen at the front and some signs that spin. So, some eye rolls, and ah "Oh boy, here we go." If they aren't offended, why are you?

Disgustng? Did I make the robots actual Mexican people? Did I allow Sonic to kill them?

No. Get over yourself.

@Ell678 I didn't have time to program in the wall for DHZ. The boss would still be Eggman's wrecking ball schtick, but you would be on the wall. The wall is so many blocks high, and each of Eggman's swings take down a block. Like I said, I have since migrated the project over, so I'll get around to it soon enough.

@Aersol, as far as supporting Trump, all I will say is that I voted him, and that's about it. Doesn't mean I like him, but I hate him less over the other three. Also, I guess you need a sombrero.

Have fun.

I agree.

The hack's been posted, if people really want to play it, the links are right there. As the discourse following it has been nothing but flamewars and spam, I am now locking the thread. Don't come whining to me to unlock it, because I'm not going to. Both sides have been acting like children, so this is what you get.

As a sidenote, I will raise one rhetorical question for people to think about. What does the US election have to do with a ROM hacking contest for a blue hedgehog?
