Vs. Super Mario Bros. - Home Edition -

Hack of Vs. Super Mario Bros.

Description:

This is a hack of Vs. Super Mario Bros. that allows the game to be run on a standard MMC1 cart with 8KB SRAM. (MMC1 was used because no official CNROM carts support SRAM, not all emulators support this configuration, and MMC1 repro boards are cheap.) No custom hardware required!

It also adds the following features:

  • Pre-game menu that allows you to set dipswitches and reset the high scores
  • High score retention (when using battery-backed SRAM)
  • Correct NES colors (Vs. hardware used RGB PPUs with scrambled colors)

This patch works with either of the commonly available Vs. Super Mario Bros. NES ROMs; the only difference between the two is the timer speed (see the readme for details).

This patch has been tested on the PowerPak and works without issues. It should also work on any other flash cart or copier with MMC1 support. A side effect of porting this for use on a console is that it that the patched ROM is more compatible with emulators such as FCEUXD.
