It's been 2 months of this project and this is the project I've been doing so far. Introduction
What is Frank's 2nd SMB3 hack?
It is based on Frank Maggiore's 2nd SMB3 hack for the NES which was originally made in 2004. Official release of this hack was April 23, 2005. Of course for somewhat reason, it was named "Strange Mario Bros." when downloaded the demo release from Zophar's domain after Acmlm discontinued the project. Of course Frank Maggiore officially named the hack after himself which is called Frank's 2nd SMB3 hack. Since after the 1st one, it should not be difficult, frustrating, or unfair. Today, this full completed NES version can be downloaded at ROM-Hacking dot net
The SNES version is a remake from the NES version along with new changes, such as new added sounds when they slide down hills, Buster Beetle throws, and including Thwomps. Other changes are coming soon.What's Done

You need the Super Mario All Stars (U) ROM with HEADER
to apply the IPS Patch with!!! It comes with Super Mario All Stars + World. It does not work with Super Mario All Stars (E), any Super Mario All Stars ROM without header. or Super Mario Collection (Japanese version). The game is meant for testing purposes only, not for the entire gameplay. Also, while you load the ROM with any SNES emulator, you will notice that the SNES checksums are fixed.
Also, download my ZSNES savestates
from my Mediafire uploader for people that want to play around with it or contribute with the ExGraphics project for SMB3-SMAS.
