As you know I want to make a hack and have spent the past 48 hours or so bitching about my lack of ability, creativity, source material, ideas, yadda yadda yadda. I realised what I haven't done is asked you all: What do you want to see in a hack made by me? Would you be suitably impressed by a simple palette and level hack, or do you want flashy stuff, new bosses, new enemies, the works with extra pepperoni? I guess the active question is what do I want to achieve with this, but there's an aspect of you, the user, as well. I personally want to impress. I want something people will look at and say "wow". I know of examples in both categories where people say that of its creator: Tohaka is little more than a palette and level hack and became famous for being an excellent example of this category, although it has started to move into the technical realm with the "find the emeralds" concept. Eggman in Sonic 1 is a pinnacle of technical skill which does LOst proud even though the level and palette are unchanged. So I turn it over to you.
