Should finally be caught up with awarding badges. If you can't tell, I've been a bit busy - mostly with outside of Fami responsibilities, but also with Yoshi's Island. So without further ado...

Halfway to Baby Luigi, Perfectionist, Brothers Reunited, and Extra Credit
If I'm gonna conquer the one classic Super Mario game I've never finished, I'm doing it properly...by saving myself a 20 hour playthrough and using rewinds to hold onto my stars. Hey, if Nintendo didn't want us to use it, they wouldn't put it in their emulator. Even with that, this was the longest single game in the challenge. Me playing all four games in Super Mario All-Stars to 100% took less time than Yoshi's Island 100%!

What a game, though. One of the most impressive looking and sounding SNES games, incredible controls and atmosphere, secrets galore...it's seeing the transition from course clear Mario to sandbox Mario in real time. And with that, I am now a Super Player!!

There are only two badges that stand in my way of a perfect 60/60. Will I have the time to beat Yoshi's Island again on GBA to get those secret levels? Will I just give up and look for a save file to play them on my cartridge/emulator of choice? And will I find some players to play Mario Bros. Battle with?? Only time will tell.
 
A playthrough of Mario 3 and World has become a yearly thing for me so I definitely had to participate.

This shouldn't have been quite such a rush, but I procrastinated on the challenge just a little too long 😅 Here's SMB3 (all six):


And, probably finally, Warp Zoner:

I don't think that High Score Chaser is going to happen as All-Stars saves don't preserve scores, but I can do Yoshi's Island:


I have a few screenshots to drop tonight. I keep forgetting to lol.
In case a reminder is helpful :)

I didn't give myself more time than I had originally planned for this (got hit by the Splatoon urge), but it was enough to grab a few things fairly quickly to rotate Kirby out :D Thank you for organizing this @VolcanicDynamo , @Aurc , and @Josh5890 !

I'm not going to be able to get all the advance challenges, I burned out :p But I did get some of them!



And some final last-minute hi-score entries!

 
Ah, let's do this - with some point farming in SMW, here's 548,020 points. Add that to Yoshi's Island (1,080,000) and SML (421,520) and that's 2 million for the last badge.

Much appreciated!


@VolcanicDynamo I come to receive two three more badges.

Super Mario Bros Lost Levels:

I believe that this will earn me the Super Player badge as well!


Super Mario Bros Advance:

PbToTNR.jpg

So I got a little burned out on Mario games so I never finished the Advanced games. Regardless, I want to thank VolcanicDynamo for hosting this event. This is by far the best Famiboards event that I have ever taken part in (and I've hosted a couple of them myself). Every once in a while I have to remind myself how special the Mario games are. Replaying all of them to 100% completion was a great joy, especially with Wonder right around the corner. Great job!
 
I HAVE DONE IT.

I AM FREE.

SECRET CREDIT? MINE. 100% COMPLETION IN SUPER MARIO ADVANCE 3? ALL MINE.
2023091421035500-51944-F40-F35-BE3688-F8-FD0-D8-CFE910-FD.jpg

JUMP FOR JOY, YOSHIS! YOU HAVE DONE IT!!!!

Jokes aside, this 100% cutscene almost made it worth playing through Yoshi's Island twice. Almost.

AND HOW ABOUT BROTHERLY BRAWL? ALL...ours, since my buddy @blondkayvon played with me. Thanks for the late match! You'll also be getting this badge.

This ending pic didn't capture how chaotic and close this match was. We both had a lot of fun. I think a Fami tournament for this game would be great.

And with that? That's 60/60 badges - a true perfect clear! I had a lot of fun hosting this event. I'll be awarding badges throughout the night and tomorrow, and we'll have a final breakdown soon.

For all those who played Yoshi's Island - feel free to post your scores in the thread for the leaderboard! I'd love to see how far people gotten. I'll give folks a small grace period to get those or any last minute badges in. And in the event that Super Mario Land comes to NSO, we'll reopen the whole event for a bit for folks to get the full badge set. I'll announce the timing for the raffle once everything is said and done.

Unfortunately because of my busy schedule ... I wasn't able to beat Mario 3 in time. But it was still fun and I'll definitely do it in the next few days! Mario 2 was especially awesome, very cool game.
 
well done OP

A little bit dissapointed I wasnt able to participate in this event - looked like a ton of fun..and I have had an itch to return to old Mario games again...
next event I want to be able to join in on the fun,
 
FUCK I got so preoccupied with a move despite photographing the goals i did a week or so ago i never uploaded em since its a PITA to get em on imgur

After my move i’ll see if I can share em here just because
 
Event is Closed - Thank You!
And that's a wrap on the Super Mario All-Stars Celebration Event! The last badges in the thread have been awarded, and event submissions have now been closed. Thank you to everyone who participated in the festivities.

This event has been a real passion project for me. I started the initial planning document on the very last day of 2022, and we've been hashing out the details to have a proper debut for the event since early January. I wanted to make this the best event I could, and I was always encouraged to go further by the rest of the staff. First, we had 35 missions. Then we increased it to 50, matching the Metroid Prime and Fusion event. And then when Super Mario Advance 1-3 came to NSO, I knew we could go all the way - 60 total missions, the most of any Famiboards event yet. I want to once again extend my thanks to @Aurc and @Josh5890 for helping to plan the event, come up with challenges, and make the badges. I truly could not have done this without you two, from using the Metroid event as my template to all the encouragement I received along the way.

And what a ride it has been! We've had 25 people complete at least one Mario game during the event. Nine people cleared all 50 main events, and three went above and beyond to clear all 60. Even if you earned at least one badge, you're all Super Players to me! As a bonus, I'll also be awarding badges to those who didn't report completion of Mario games here but did so this year in the 2023 Completed Games thread! While the folks here in the thread will be the ones entered into the raffle, I do hope that everyone else enjoys their badges and Famicoins!

Playing these games again for the event was a real treat. You all know that Super Mario is my favorite gaming franchise, and these are some of my favorites out of the lot. I even got to finish Yoshi's Island for the first time - twice! Playing for high scores adds a different focus to Mario that I usually ignore, and it was fun trying to maximize my points for each level. Speaking of which, here is the final cumulative high score tally, besides those on the tables. I didn't get to find everyone's Yoshi's Island scores, but the numbers here reflect what I was able to find otherwise.

In the coming week, we will be doing the raffles. I hope you look forward to hearing the winners! Additionally, in the event that Super Mario Land comes to NSO, we'll repoen the event for a time for people to earn those Mario Land badges! I have some more ideas for events, both Mario and beyond, that I want to do in the future, and I look forward to bringing those to you in the future. But for now, "Thank you so much for playing my game!"

Not sure who to tag so I’ll tag @meatbag
 
I did this pretty much exclusively so I could tell @VolcanicDynamo I've beaten a 2D Mario game.

I'm currently on 4-1 but had to call it a night. Hopefully I can get Topple Tatanga tomorrow or Wednesday but I doubt I'll be able to clear the Hard Mode challenge. If I have extra time I may double back to some of the other challenges but I'm not sure I will.

Uhh... I apologise. I thought I already uploaded my SMB3 ending. I ended up deleting it by mistake somehow.

Here it is:

Oh shoot, I've already done a couple of these! I'll have to remember to post screenies tomorrow. I forgot to post the screenies when I finished Minish Cap last year for the Zelda challenge lol.

Silly brain.

@VolcanicDynamo

Thanks for all the badges 😁
There's just a small mistake though. I was given the badge for SMB2J ending instead of SMB1. Have no fear though, you can keep it there as I have a screenshot for SMB2J ending too 😎

I replayed SMB2J 8-4 just to double check and yea it's slightly different. In SMB1 ending Mario only blushes, but in SMB2J he has love hearts for eyes hehe. Also Bowser has 2 pillars hanging from the top of the screen in SMB2J. Here are a couple images for the SMB2J ending:

I'm really glad this event was rerun since even though it originally ran for so long, I just couldn't make the time last year. I had intended to play both Mario Land and Mario Land 2 at least ahead of Mario Wonder, but it just didn't work out. Not only did I get the chance to correct that, I got to dig into both games much more than when I had played them on 3DS. I didn't know Mario Land had a hard mode for example and I never looked into how many hidden exits Mario Land 2 had even if I accidentally triggered a few. So yeah, thanks @VolcanicDynamo for hosting such a cool event!

I managed to claim all of the Mario Land badges, all of the Mario Land 2 badges, and two of the general badges (Let's-A Go! and B-Dasher) while playing here. Don't know who is handing these out exactly, but I'll tag both @meatbag and @MissingNo. :)

Mario Land Badges + Let's-A Go!








Mario Land 2 Badges + B-Dasher (I may have had fun with the pictures...)

 
Land 2, 'Ring the Bonus Bell', 'Take Back the Golden Coins' and 'Wallop Wario';

2024052221354600-483C6BBED1D1438BF0CAEDD31329B90E.jpg

I also found out doing these that in general, I prefer Land 2 with a large screen without "classic feel" on the "Color" setting, but Land 1 feels plain more responsive when everything is set the opposite way, small screen, original GameBoy screen, with classic feel. Land 1 is the first game where this has been the case. Something just feels better like that, while 2 benefits from the upgrades.
