Welcome to Metroid Construction, the ultimate resource for all things Metroid hacking related. Started on the 19th February 2009, Metroid Construction has aimed to be the central spot for all things Metroid hacking related. Feel free to join us on the forums! For real-time conversation, use the chat link above to join our IRC (alternatively use your own IRC client to connect: we exist at irc.esper.net on channel #MetConst). We also have a Discord server if you're into that sort of thing. We hope to see you around!

Feature creep

The site now tracks download counts for both Hacks and Resources. I even backfilled the numbers based on the month of August (unfortunately we don't have accurate information older than that). If this change accidentally broke any download links, please let us know on IRC or Discord or whatever.

In other news, everyone should go watch the solar eclipse tonight, and then get inspired to make a hack.

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.
