I'm trying to port other smb hacks to the Two Player Hack (by CorpseGrinder and Ti)
I do not take requests but I can share information on hacking the Two Player Hack.

I've already made a Co-Op version of my own hack:

Mario's Keep.

Luigi's Chronicles Feat. Waluigi

I'm finished with reworking a old hack by Googie to make it co-op.
I tried to give Waluigi a separate sprite. I have managed to do so in the original game, but I can't move my changes to the Two Player Hack, unfortunately.


I'm also working on two more co-op hacks I will post about them later:

Super Mario Bros. Co-Op Coin Challenge

That's an interesting twist on the game. Having levels where you actually need two players to complete would make for interesting puzzles, although I imagine it requires quite a lot of nifty ASM coding.

Well the hard work is already done. The game is already two player co-op and there's this program that let's you import levels to the two player hack.

Importing new functions is harder but it can be done by comparing hex data in the two player hack and the original rom.

I did som asm just to give the players a star if they collect 100 coins... but something went wrong when i tried to place the new hex in the Two Player Hack... instead of invincibilyty at 100 coins you got death at 1 coin... but ONLY Mario!

adress:
BBEF - 64 = 100 coins
BBF7 - change FE5A07A940 into 8AA820EBD9 = Mario hurt by coins


This was a great find. Now I just need to design the levels. Luigi can remove coins that would kill Mario. And Mario can bounce on coins if he hits them from above!

to see luigi chronicles get co-op is awesome. Good work :beer:

I managed to give Luigi a separate sprite in asm.


Unfortunately I can't port my changes to the Two Player Hack. Source code for the Two Player Hack is not available.
Any ideas?

Now. I'm working on my new hack Super Mario Bros. Co-Op Coin Challenge with simultaneous two player co-op.

This hack will be pretty weird but fun. Bowser has (OR PERHAPS WARIO?) has put a spell on Mario so that coins hurt him. But he didn't count on Luigi to help his brother in rescuing the princess. Luigi can grab coins just as usual but Mario can BOUNCE on them.



Also the Goombas are disguised as mushrooms. But don't let them fool you.

I saw It, he's actually on my Discord channel. ^_^ He was extremely unlucky in making the lifts at 5-3 despawn... twice! I don't know if that's something I need to fix? They always spawn for me even with two players.



In other news:

The SMB Co-Op Coin Challenge has climbing "vines" that now look like fences.

ah okay cool. well he did beat the game on a 2nd stream, so you'll see his "part 2" on his youtube channel in the upcoming days most likely.

Super Mario Co-Op Coin Challenge

Ok, Im not satisfied with this Wario boss... he's too short! But because of how Bowser is structured this is what he looks like for now.




By looking at the Original Super Mario Bros. Disassembly I can find the BowserGFXHandler.
But I need to port all changes to the Two Player Hack since this is co-op.

Ok! So Super Mario Co-Op Coin challenge is finished and will soon be published on RHDN.  ;D



Luigi can touch coins as normal but the coins will act like enemies to Mario!
