Mario Adventure - Real Hardware + N8 Flashcart + RGB compatible

Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3


This IPS patch fixes a bunch of issues found in the best SMB3 hack of all the time “Mario Adventure” made by DahrkDaiz, such that pads the ROM to 512 kB so that it works on the PowerPak and in EverDrive N8 flash cart for NES, and applies AWal’s fix so that Mario Adventure works on real NES hardware.

This patch includes:

  • AWal’s Mario Adventure Real Hardware compatibility fix
  • SkinnyV’s Mario Adventure EverDrive N8 patch
  • Drakon’s RGB palette modification

This patch does these things:

  • Fix the SRAM initialization bug present in the hack - This is the biggest modification and all credit/thanks goes to aWal for going through the game ASM and fixing this
  • Pad the rom to 512Kb as the hack has a unusual CHR size - Thanks to SkinnyV for doing this great modification
  • Use an awesome RGB palette modification - Thanks to Drakon for this awesome modification

Use this patch in this specific “Mario Adventure” patched ROM:

Rom file: Mario_Adventure_1.nes

Description: Patched SMB3 (U) (PRG1) rom with original patch of DahrkDaiz’s “Mario Adventure” hack


This 3-in-1 patch allows to play fully the game Mario Adventure in the real NES hardware, use it in the Everdrive N8 flash cart, use an awesome RGB mod / compatibility patch, and best of all, it makes compatible also with the NES Classic Mini and as a injected Wii VC (Wii Virtual Console) game WAD!

Enjoy this patch!!! :)
