Smashbros mod on Kickstarter... Could something this retarded be real?!


More Noodle Cash?

Top Ramen stipends, especially after a Nintendo lawsuit.


This shit reminds me of when a 15 year old put a Mugen fighter on steam greenlight.


I’m going to say that, not to his defense or anything, but are we sure he knows what trouble he’s going to get himself into? Does he research anything regarding prophiting off of a major company’s franchise without consent? Does he /has he seen what happens to projects like this?

I think he is either naive or ignorant to research on this type of modding, and at worst, he can get fined for this project, or if Nintendo/Ubisoft/Konami/Rare is merciful, a cease letter killing this project.

I’m hoping that this guy is just young and doesn’t know what he’s doing


From what I read and heard, Nintendo done sending C&D letters. The C&D letter is a “legal nicety”, there no reason a company has to send a C&D.

Fined? Try taken to court for hundreds of thousands of dollars for damages over IP infringement. That isn’t a fine, that sell your house, car and hope you have enough at the end that you don’t go to bankruptcy court.


MXN, which appear on the goals, means mexican pesos.

Dunno why if he resides in Minnesota but given how the currency has devalued to new bottoms, he could have the project funded just as time passes.

Not going to bother reading the whole page but who handles physical cartridges in 2017?


The guy lives in Miami Florida according to KS. He using MX$ not MXN. There is no MX$ Currency.

He not selling cards or offering any physical rewards. He just going to offer a patch file free to modify the rom.
You need a Flash Cart of some sort to play on a real console.


Look at the reward tiers and it specifies MXN in the conversion rate.

Also, this dude’s raised like… $12 USD. Someone got mummy’s credit card info.


That guy even put Nintendo’s copyrighted trademarks in the preview, lol.


Super Smash Scam


That’s hot.


For the record the Project M team never received a C&D from Nintendo. They got a lawyer, realized that Nintendo could sue them for everything they’d ever own in their lives, and decided it wasn’t worth it. If Nintendo was adamant about shutting down PM then they had plenty of time and effective methods to do so. Point still stands though, this guy is an absolute idiot.


I never said they got a C&D, only legal action taken against them. Project M should of gotten a Lawyer, it allowed them to settle out of court will alot less lost.
Nintendo waits till the moment of release so they can claim damages, they haven’t send a C&D in a long time.


Even settling out of court is a pretty steep price, so when they talked with the lawyer they decided to abandon further development. My bad on the C&D, I misread your posts.


It’s cool.

Yeah A C&D isn’t legal action, it’s a legal nicety.
Like a fair warring, issue is C&D don’t go into a public record afterwards.
Court records are public (even if you move to settle out of court), and a company has the legal responsibility to protect their IP, sometimes aggressively.

It also show that if company gone too soft they could lose the next case.

It is the OP that thinks there going to be a C&D.

I think Nintendo and others are taking their time to build their case.

I do think it’s sad for the guy who start his KS to only have $20 and 5 backers half way though.


It’s 'cause no one gonna fund this shitty mod that will almost assuredly get Nintendo’s own Mjolnir dropped onto it before it could ever come out, and everyone knows it.


I know that, it still just plain sad to see $20 from 5 backers
It’s like a sign he should quit the project now and delete all his work


Goddammit this shitty post is becoming more popular than the thread for my game :bawling:


What happened first, this or the Flappy Bird fiasco?

That guy seems to have come out fine given that he did much worse.


Makes a mod out of a game that’s not even theirs and still tries to sell it for profit… Yea… this guy DEFINITELY has the right idea… not. Don’t know what this guy is thinking but he’s an idiot if he thinks anything good is gonna come of this.


With Flappy bird, he just reused someone’s assets. If they were not the distinct Super Mario world assets he would of been fine.
But they are very distinct Mario images being used Nintendo brought on the Mjolnir drop in form of a lawsuit. It looks like it was settled out of court.

This is straight up much worst, Not just he modifying a game and calling it his own, he also infringing on a number of other copyrights from Ubisoft, Konami, and Microsoft.
Each could bring their own lawsuit to the guy, which he have to fight separately.

The funniest thing, I followed his intro video to the guys YouTube channel. link

Yes, just as every one of those IP holders will have their sharks people watching the internet for reactions.
