Good evening guys,
I'm a newcomer to this forum after attempting to create a Super Mario Bros. hack for an art show. The sprites, levels, and text I can handle as I've done some of this before. If this belongs in the Newcomer's forum please accept my apologies & let it be moved there. I wasn't sure.

Thanks in advance to anyone who could lend a hand.
