I've had a look at what's going on here. It looks like someone has decided to undo some of our hard work. There is a lot of stuff missing again, but because I have all of the content still on my computer, it just has to re-uploaded again. We are looking at finding a better way to have this pack online (an MFGG style page would be ideal and has been discussed a while ago but is not something to be seen in the foreseeable future) and of course once we find a suitable "host/repository" things will look and run much smoother.

To those who have asked if they can upload things, yes of course you can! We appreciate any and all help to finally bring this GFX Pack back up to scratch. Just be sure to upload your files to the correct directories with correct naming and credits. All of the base folders are there and waiting to be filled, all you have to do is drag and drop your content into the appropriate folders.

NOTE: Because of there now being SMBX 2.0 and SMBX38A/1.4 we have to add a few more folders to accommodate for new NPCs, files etc. So if you have any custom stuff for either of these versions, if you could wait a while till we sort out their directories before uploading anything that would be great.

I think that within the folders (level, BGO, background etc.) we should organise graphics by theme. You could have a folder for grassland tiles, castle tiles, cave tiles, basically anything that a lot of people have made graphics for. You could also have an 'other' folder for all the graphics that don't fit into any of the other themes, and only have a few graphics with that theme (as if there were a lot, you would make a new folder for them.)
This would organise the pack a LOT better, as instead of scrolling through literally hundreds or even thousands of graphics, you would just look at the folder(s) for whatever theme you are looking for.

I also agree.

Also, what should people do with NPC folders that replace multiple NPCs?

It's worth a try, we have the space to do it at the moment so it could work. Really the NPCs are the only things that are actually sorted out, while everything else is just dumped into a singular folder. I think it's an idea mentioned once before a long time ago, but I suppose, while the online version is practically empty again, adding more structure now would be easier than later once it is filled with graphics. I shall get onto that tonight.

I will be adding a folder specifically for that, say you made a pack of NPCs which follow a certain theme (eg. Halloween), instead of uploading each individual NPC to their correct NPC folders, there will be a folder called NPC Packs for which you can dump the whole pack into. Basically like how the Full Changes folder from the old SMBX CGFX Pack works. Instead of trying to split everything up, the whole themed pack can be presented as a whole.

I've noticed something now with the new structuring of folders based on themes. It is actually making it a lot easier to spot doubled-up graphics after each upload session. I'm definitely going to continue with this addition structuring across the rest of the pack, though this may take a little bit of time to achieve, it is going to be worth it for the rest of you guys in the end.

On another note, if you have any suggestions/ideas in regards to the pack itself, feel free to voice them below. :)

There's really no reason to make a separate folder for 1.3 NPCs seeing as how both types of folders are the same files. Plus, I've been working on some of the 1.3 npcs in the folder.

Sorry. I did that because 1.3 NPC PNGs are both compatible with 1.4 and 2.0, so that there wouldn't have to be duplicates in both the 1.4 and 2.0 folders of, say, a PNG purple goomba. And I appreciate the work you did on the 1.4 NPCs, 2.0 NPCs, and block folders. Please keep it up!

Yeah I was thinking along the lines of doing the same thing thanks for getting in ahead of me on that. I didn't think that through as well I should have when I dumped the files. If someone can upload the SMBX 1.3.0.1 Default Graphics that would be great. I didn't want to have to download it just to do a file dump. Or unless someone knows every graphic that was fixed in the 1.3.0.1 update, maybe just add those, as they are the only ones which are of importance.

Also, do we know what happened that made so many folders blank? There are some Blocks, BGOs, Backgrounds, and NPC folders that exist, but have nothing in them.

That can entirely be blamed on me. I tried reuploading the folders once they were deleted, but I made the mistake of uploading the entire folders instead of one at a time, and the uploader couldn't handle the amount. I might try again one piece at a time.

Oh that's what happened? You can upload folders in their entirety, but for some reason, you will need a bit of speed as far as your internet goes. That's happened to me a couple of times before, but don't be too concerned. If you do the bulk of your uploads when you have a good, strong connection it will be fine. Otherwise, you can upload files one by one. I have found that sometimes, closing OneDrive/logging out and then going back into it can fix the problem.

Should Backgrounds and Background Objects be separated into folders (besides their format)?

Well, I'll just go ahead on BGOs so I don't waste a perfectly good weekend. I'll leave the backgrounds to Murphmario so he can decide whether they should be sorted by theme or time of day.

Also, what graphics and graphics packs do you guys want to see in the cloud next?

I'd say yes to this, if we're going to spend the time sorting things properly then we may as well do across the board. There's already over 1000 BGOs and that's mostly from just the old GFX Pack. If we sort them into their respective themes, both BGOs and Backgrounds it will allow people to find things quicker and spend less time scrolling and waiting for each folder to load on screen.

It's ok, the same thing is happening to me.

Also please upload MarioWizzerd's SMB1 8-bit to 16-bit tiles to the Tileset Packs folder again. The folders inside of it were empty, so I deleted it because I thought it was mine that didn't upload. I'm sorry. But it would need to be uploaded again anyways.

Squishy, could you please search for the Special Blocks folder in Blocks? I found the Grass folder hiding inside another folder, but the Special Blocks folder eludes me.
