New Contest!
Posted on Feb 01, 2017 by personitis

Happy February everyone. If you've been following the forums at all, you may have noticed that there's a new contest going on: the Winter Hacking Contest (2017) hosted by DSO. If you've ever been interested in getting into romhacking for Metroid, Super, Fusion, or Zero Mission, now's a great time to jump in and learn. This has usually got people to make mods which they probably wouldn't have bothered to do otherwise. Despite being a contest, it's also prime time to ask questions and learn since everyone's using their noggins and/or the knowledgeable people are around to help.

Rules are listed in the topic (linked again here) and you'll have until February 28th to make a working product. MAKE MOAR HACKS and don't forget to test your work! Good luck and happy hacking.

We Have a Discord!

Just dropping a quick note that we have a Discord server as well. The link below will get you in. For now, the community races and such are still held on Mumble for audio recording purposes. Having a clean audio recording of the call is pretty important when Lenophis or myself do the compilation videos of the races. But please do come by the Discord and drop a few notes. We're usually pretty nice.

New website finally live
Posted on Jul 17, 2016 by thedopefish

If you hadn't noticed, the new website is now officially live and out of beta. Welcome to the new face of metconst! If, for some reason you need access to something on the old site, fear not--it is still available at http://old.metroidconstruction.com. If you do happen to find any broken links, bugs, or other problems with the site, feel free to poke me on IRC or send me a PM on the forums and I'll try to get it sorted out. Otherwise, enjoy the new site!
