    Didn't work. Tried rewording the Xenesis credits to fit.

    Wanted to clarify that Xenesis documented the original rom, not my rom. Hopefully that doesn't go over the text-limit. With that, I should be done with updates for now. Thank you! :)

    If "help and advice" isn't acceptable contributions, I suppose cut the two last ones, but then I'd claim the top three edits should be made at least. It looks weird with cut text right now.

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. 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. It has been tested on the PowerPak, but should also work on any other flash cart or copier with basic MMC1 support.

Version 1.1a:

  • ROM header was erroneously set to NES 2.0 with incorrect SRAM size, causing some emulators (and maybe newer flash carts?) to not actually save SRAM. This has been corrected. (NOTE: PRG data remains unchanged, so dedicated MMC1 carts do not need to be updated.)

Version 1.1:

  • Fixed intermittent scanline glitch on NTSC PPUs (this affected the original game as well)
  • Changed default dipswitch settings to match those found in the operation manual; defaults can now be restored by pressing A + B + Select at the menu
  • Dipswitch settings are now saved in SRAM
  • Implemented timer speed settings for both original and alternate ROMs (no need for separate ROMs anymore)
  • Minor fixes and cleanups

Fixes emulator issues

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 29 Nov 2012

This hack is great as it makes it more compatible with emulators. The dipswitch screen is also a great addition and can make the game a bit easier. I expect to see this offered on cart repro sites as this is a great game to begin with. Recommended and should be your default ROM when playing this game.
