Collaborative Projects (Previously Involved)#

  • Smack Studio — A sandbox fighting game with built-in creation tools. Former Director of Marketing from Sept. 2021 until June 2024.
  • Custom Windows 11 Folder Icons — A set of custom icons I had initially created for Windows 11 that worked in all sizes. Since my ElevenForum post in 2021, it’s become a community effort and thousands of custom folder icons have been created. jbcarreon123 has even created a dedicated Windows application for it.
  • Cosmetic Standardization Project (Brawl) — A whole system for easily generating high quality in-game cosmetics for any Brawl or Project M character costume. Original founder and team lead from early 2018 until March 2020. The Discord server is still active.
  • Melee HD Asset Library — A set of resources providing high quality Super Smash Bros. Melee assets for content creators. I created much of the content from in-game HD rips and captures - and for the 2021 HD texture pack for Slippi and Dolphin, led a team of capable artists (more info about that can be found on Reddit). This pack was eventually updated and the renders replaced by Efisio’s Melee Cosmetic Standardization Project in 2023. I started the library in 2020 with my earliest asset uploaded on my YouTube channel, but as of 2022 It is no longer actively maintained, with a few exceptions.
