Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)
Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.
SMB Special for NES - README - 1.0~rc1 Copyright 2008-2012 Levi "Karatorian" Aho May be used under the GNU FDL === Introduction =============================================================== This release (1.0~rc1) is an official release candidate of the Super Mario Bros. Special for NES port. SMBS is a SMB based game licensed by Nintendo and created by Hudson Soft for the Japanese PC8801 computer. It was later ported to the Sharp X1. However, beyond these (now) obscure platforms, it was largely ignored and forgotten until suddenly becoming a cult hit in the emulation scene. The game became notorious for it's fiendish difficulty and it's (unusual for a Mario game) use of single screens rather than smooth scrolling. The suggestion was made to give the game a facelift and expose it to a wider audience by porting it to the NES. This is the result of that effort. In reality, the use of the word port is a misnomer. The level data was reimplemented for the SMB engine (with required modifications) and no portion of the SMBS engine code was used. === Package Contents =========================================================== As the final patch format for the 1.0 release has yet to be decided on, the current package contains two versions of the patch. They all are made against the same ROM images and (should) function identically. README This file smbs-1.0~rc1.ups UPS patch smbs-1.0~rc1.ips IPS patch === Patching =================================================================== Simply apply the patch in the format of your choice to a clean SMB ROM image. Installing and using patch tools are beyond the scope of this document, see the excellent document and utilities collection at RHDN if you need help. For your convenience, the CRC32 and MD5 checksums of the ROM image used by the developers and the resulting image are included below. smb.nes 0xd445f698 0x8e3630186e35d477231bf8fd50e54cdd smbs-1.0~rc1.nes 0xb25c00ab 0x682b381e2e8ea3a53ea2d201d9fbd15c Note: These checksums are as provided by FCEU. FCEU calculates the checksums without the header data, so the sums reported by other tools may not match. === Beta Test Notes ============================================================ This is a beta release. Unless bugs are found, this patch will be used for the 1.0 release. To that end, we urge all interested parties to try it out and report any issues found. Please report any issues to the official project thread at 'http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,5671.0.html'. We are especially interested in testing on real hardware. If you have access to an MMC1 flash cart and a working NES, please let us know if you encounter any difficulties. Please note that no existing SMB bugs (or exploits) have been fixed by this patch, so they shouldn't be reported. Finally, we appreciate all the support the ROM hacking community has given this project and would like to reflect the effort of all the dedicated testers who've helped with this project. If you've playtested this or any other SMBS for NES release and would like to be credited, please send a PM to 'Karatorian' with the real name and or nick you'd like to be listed by. Furthermore, if you're already credited in the Special Thanks section and should like to be listed differently (or to be removed), just send a PM as mentioned above. === Changes ==================================================================== * All levels replaced with those from SMBS. * Title screen replaced with SMBS based one. * Level height reduced to reflect platform differences. * Inverted pipes added. * Red piranha plants added. * Additional block types to accommodate level changes. * ROM expanded to accommodate larger level data and added code. * Other minor changes to reflect SMBS differences from SMB. Beta Bugs Found and Fixed * Broken Vines by "Bitch in the Red Dress" === To Do ====================================================================== Feel free to ignore this section. It will go away soon. * Fill in list of beta testers. * Track down missing names in special thanks. * Clean up source code for 1.0 release. * Decide on a patch format. * ... === Credits ==================================================================== --- ROM Hacking ---------------------------------------------------------------- Levi "Karatorian" Aho Engine Hacking, Tool Programming, Packaging "Frantik" Engine Hacking, Level Editing, Graphic Design --- Playtesters ---------------------------------------------------------------- ... --- Special Thanks ------------------------------------------------------------- RHDN World Domination "SMB2J-2Q" Original Idea "Doppleganger" SMB Disassembly Andrew "Prez" Culver hexedit, bnuview, romjuice "YY" yy-me "M.K.S" SMB Utility "tkdrg" pysr Guido Van Rossum et al Python ... cc65 "SnowBro" Tile Molester ...
