* Sees "Mario 3 with Cape"

Hell yeah!

* Sees "graphical only, no functional changes"

Dammit!

Yeah... pretty much my reaction. I thought that RHDN didn't host that sort of hack, but maybe I misunderstand the guidelines.

I also wondered about RHDN's hack acceptance rules when I saw that.

Generally, I'd use PNG for 8 and 16-bit games. For those, filesizes are about equal but JPG creates noticeable artifacts.
For consoles with higher color depth, JPG files are often smaller with less noticeable distortion.

So what functional changes are possible with the "cape"? Two I can think of is to increase flight speed and to fly with the button held instead of mashing.

JPG creates nice looking files for those bitdepth games if you turn up the quality I've noticed.

Unless you're running an NTSC filter, in which case you're fucked.

We don't. You understood correctly. That hack should never have been approved. It should be removed.

Well, I hate to sound like a minimod, but I've noticed a number hacks along these lines being approved. The only reason this one was called out is because we actually downloaded it thinking it was something better than it was. With the surge of... um... enthusiastic contributors lately, I'm not surprised if staff is being less thorough due to the volume.

I don't mind. Bring them to my attention and we'll get rid of them, and alert staff members to ones that shouldn't have made it through in case there were any misunderstandings.
