Programming / smb3 help thread regarding PPU
« on: September 12, 2017, 09:43:31 am »
I am trying to help a friend with an smb 3 hack. But I can't seem to understand how the PPU talks with the CPU.
We want to change the formation of the flashing tile A9 after you collect 3 of the same level cards i.e. 3 stars makes the big star on the screen. I found the area in ppu ram around 2040 the top left visible screen. I logged code while this happened I can't see A9 even mentioned other the fact it's an op code LDA. I read on the internet but was left more confused. Seems the PPU might pull from ram? But I can't find where the cpu stored to ram in the trace log.
Any info would be great.

I got side tracked to be honest. I've been running a SMW collaboration, it's almost finished. It's also a busy time of year. I did complete 2 worlds or so. I did choose to use sic's wario bros hack though. I really like his graphics. I also changed Warios physics made him a little more heavy, and his fire ball bounce a little more sloppy, you sometimes miss.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Smb 3 Collab
« on: August 27, 2017, 11:41:30 am »
I recently have been running a smw collab thats close to finish.
I thought about trying this with smb3. the idea would be to keep the same overworlds, tilesets palletes but make new levels with same kind of sprites tilesets etc.. Basically a new level pack.

I still would like to move challenge stuff around. I tried using break points and hex editor but couldn't figure out anything.

I know how to create levels, using the editor. But it doesn't seem to support moving the challenge items around. Anyone know or able to find the specifics of this?

I found the challenge mode fun in this game. I would love to do a hack of this game, but the editor doesn't support editing much of the challenge mode. Any information on this would be great!

Well good luck on it. What I am also hoping is one day that Mario Land 1 gets a better DX version itself. I mean I know one's already there, but at least let there be Luigi there too.

I Agree.

Will this hack be allowed to be used as a base hack? If so, will the editor even work with this anymore?

@  Isao Kronos Thanks for the worst reply I have seen on the internet since 1992... Obviously I was unable to find anything on google so I asked here incase anyone knew of anything unreleased.

@ Midna Thanks I didn't think so, but wanted to ask just in case.

I was preety impressed with this. You can get stuck in some areas depending on the turtles you have left. also MMc5 conversion breaks in nesds, but thats not your fault. Despite these small issues, I did find this better then the original.

you're right they are. One of mine was, They never asked permission, I've since used sa-1 / dsp-1 chips. Repos are too cheap to provide the extra chip needed.
If you're open source it's gonna happen no matter what you do anyway.

I changed "Press Start Button" because I feel like it sounds a bit more modern; It's already implied that "start" is a button.  This updates it to the wording on the SMAS versions of the game.  Just to be clear the change is from "PUSH START BUTTON" to "PUSH START" (It never said "PRESS").

You can test that the charge jump clears all controller input--pause the game and unpause, but keep holding start when you unpause.  Then, with start still held down do a charge jump.  It will pause, even though you never let go and re-pressed start.  Lots of games have this input clearing issue; a while back I posed a fix for it in Megaman 1 (which clears input when you collect an energy item, dropping you in a pit if you were in mid-air collecting it).  Mario 1 allows you to manually change input when it should be frozen when you get a mushroom (this allows you to release and re-press jump on a mushroom to do an extra jump off the mushroom).

EDIT: To prevent the tiles for the eyes from being used, use this:

(add 0x10 for header)
0x1f39d: ea ea ea

So is this why in smb 1 when collecting a mushroom while over a pit you lose speed and plummet to death?

Oh I liked your hack it self. The colorizer seemed to create trouble. But maybe it's just the emulators fault.
Either way this project is really exciting.

Excited to play this!
Hope the original SML gets a real color hack someday

ROM Hacking Discussion / Smb3 pointers
« on: May 20, 2017, 09:23:47 am »
I have been working on an existing smb3 hack with the Author to make there hack eaiser. Unfortunately I felt some pipes needed to be moved a little bit. The author learned about pointers through trial and error and kinda finds it hard to explain how to use them. Obviously I don't want to trial and error on someone else's hack can someone explain them to me.

As a side note smb3 workshop pointers really need a better way. Perhaps a way to show where the sub screen boundries are is a good start.
