I like how you can try the game out online without downloading it... Buuuut I hate how I saw pretty much every enemy that is in the overworld stages in the first stage. The first stage didn't feel very hard, but at the same time, it felt SMB2 (Japan) hard... Which to me, says "this game is only for people who can beat SMB1 with their eyes close and think SMB2 is an easy game". :/ I have no true skill for SMB.
Who will quote me next?

Hard? Or brutally abusing the SMB physics? Because I found SMB2 did the latter & wasn't fun because of it. :-\
And I'll leave it at that!

From what little I played, it just seemed like "Hard"... But when you practically see every enemy in the game in the first level, that makes my head scratch a bit making me think "This will only get harder or boring from here on out". Definitely a challenge hack that's geared for SMB fanatics.

That java emulator has the worst key mappings I've ever seen.  Not everyone has a numpad on their laptop.

Hi, personnally, I like the mapping because you control the arrows with your left hand, but I think I'll remap it to something like a,s,x,z for arrows and some letters for buttons. I just though people would hate having letters for arrows. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks for your comment.

Use WASD and the cursor keys for the D-Pad. Enter and Shift should be Start and Select. Z and X are obvious choices for B and A, though there should also be opposite-hand equivalents for those who prefer WASD over the cursor keys.

If you're using WASD for movement, doesn't make sense to use Z and X for the A and B Buttons since you'd have everything all bunched up together. Something on the right side of the keyboard?

Just tried that... world 1-2. At the mid-point Mario spawns on top of a pit. Bad. :P

I personally prefer A and S for B and A respectively, as some keyboards have issues with Z, X, and arrow keys being pressed at the same time. But as KingMike says, if you're using WASD for movement, that doesn't make much sense, and neither does Z/X.

I changed the config to W,A,S,D for movement N,M for buttons, and Shift, Enter for select start.

That's what I meant. If you're using the cursor keys, use Z and X for A and B (or vice-versa); if you're using WASD, put them on the right side (N and M aren't bad, but I think the comma and period keys would feel a bit more "open").

Yea I agree but I wanted to save some space to map a controller 2 D-pad to the arrow keys (with the left hand).

Personally, I use Arrow Keys for directions, Left Shift for B, and Z for A.  I would use Z and X, but my laptop has a low number of allowed simultaneous key presses.  Left Shift is exempt from that.  My keystroke limit is so bad, I can't do sliding crouches in SMB1 without mapping B to Left Shift.

The best key mapping is a button that lets the users configure the keys.  That way everyone's happy.  LoopyNES had a good user interface for the key mapper, it just asked you to press each button, and that's good enough.  No textboxes to click on and type into, nothing like that.  Just make them press all 8 buttons, and clearly display which one you're asking for.

My virus protection(kaspersky) keeps preventing me from downloading this. Anywhere else I can download this?

If I read that correctly, Kaspersky will prevent you from downloading it regardless of where you try to download it from, in which case you'll need to fix your settings in Kaspersky.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

It is smbfix that causes false positive in a few antivirusing programs says virustotal. Why author put this and lunarips in his zip file when they aren't his programs?

Because he wanted to make sure people could play his hack.

I would highly recommend removing Kaspersky in favour of Microsoft's Security Essentials—it's extremely low-footprint relative to everyone else in the AV industry and it does its job extremely well.

So that new users who don't regularily deal with romhacks have everything they need in one package ready to go. I'm not saying it's the right thing to do, but the reasons are obvious at least.

Thanks. I paused the protection and everything works fine. The smbfix was what was getting virus alerts.

"Microsoft's Security Essentials"
lol...yeah sure.

Microsoft Security Essentials do not detect smbfix as a virus, either on my computer or on virustotal.
