I hadn't bothered to put up a hack page for my MMX5 Improvement Project since it's still only in beta and I'm still working on it (albeit very, very slowly). Since someone took the time to upload it to the site, I went ahead and submitted some minor corrections to the info on the page (such as emphasizing that it's only a beta build).

I was looking at the list and saw this: SMB Instant Death Spike patch

When I read the description all I could think was, "Why?" :huh:

I don't know why somebody came up with the Instant Death Spike patch for Super Mario Bros.!

A supplementary patch so people can use it in their hacks.
Can't I just be treated like a normal person? People react too easily these days.

MMX5:
*Alia’s hints are permanently disabled
Were any of them important?

*Keep both character bonuses regardless of which is chosen
Why is that good?

Never played the game before.

Unless you like being instructed on the most basic of gameplay (and this happens quite often, in every stage), no they did not have anything useful to offer. The only time you could argue they would be useful is the training stage (but do you really need to be told "press up to climb a ladder?")

In the future, I plan to implement MMX6's way of handling Alia's hints: an icon pops up in the corner and a sound effect plays. You can press select if you want to read it or simply ignore it. I also plan to make all the cutscenes able to be skipped by pressing start (again like MMX6).

*Keep both character bonuses regardless of which is chosen
Why is that good?
At the start of the game you get to choose between X or Zero. X starts with the Force armor and Zero starts with his Z-buster. Whichever character you choose, the other loses their bonus. Since the the Z-buster is pretty useless, there's no reason to choose Zero for the intro stage, and having the Force armor is much more beneficial (you can choose between the characters at the start of every stage). By keeping both character bonus regardless of which is chosen, it gives the player some incentive to choose Zero at the start.
