ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Screenshots

Barely have an idea of what you're talking about.

I just make music/pixels (and nothing else). They want that? I'll give them that. The rest is your problem.

I would love to have the Toxic Seahorse theme for my level, in NES tune of-course.  Format, doesn't the NES just have one format, NSF?

Have you ever composed Megaman 2 music before?  I believe infidelity did a full documentation on Megaman 2's music format.
I might need help with sprite work, since I'm not good at pixel art.

I'm a total noob at everything except writing music with Fruity Loops, so you tell me.
I think I'm fairly good at pixelart though. See the Mega Man ones there --> .

Hello, hyakulegger. Welcome to and the super special awesome world of SMB3 hacking. :)

There actually is an available SMB3 Music Editor program that was written by JaSp many years ago. He shared the last version that he made of it publicly back in 2009 through Board 2. You can download the utility at the following link:
He shared it in the following topic, "Going after the SMB3 Music Format...":

If you try searching through Google before you ask potential questions, you might discover other helpful little bits of relevant information here and there. When it comes to NES SMB3, many frequently asked questions have been answered and covered in the past, and as henke37 likes to point out in most recent SMB3 related threads, there is a disassembly for the game out there that you can also locate. :P

JaSp also created the SMB3 Music Inserter, but that program is designed specifically for the expanded Reuben SMB3 ROM. Since your current intention is to only modify the graphics and music, unless you want to make use of expanded CHR-ROM space to further customize your graphical modifications, you most likely don't need to use an expanded Reuben SMB3 ROM. Nonetheless, the thread for the utility, also last active in 2009, can be viewed here:

Best of luck! You can do it! :beer:

Like I said, I already searched, but all I found was a bunch of guys (in English, which is not my language) still looking for that.
This is very helpful, thank you a million times!!! I'm not sure I understand everything about disassambly and stuff, but I'm glad to hear there is hope. I might still need a bit of help, but I'll start with the graphics first, then the music.

I can never thank you enough for this. :beer:

I'm doing some ROM hacking, but I'm doing it in small increments as to not burn myself out.  I went to the doctor to have my eyes checked, and my eyes are fine.  So whatever it was that I was doing, it was from too much focus on the computer.  So now I only do things for smaller periods of time.

Anyway, one of the things I always wanted to, which to this day I still have not done, is make a complete hack (levels, graphics, music, ASM, etc.).  So, I started this hack about a month ago.  I don't have a title for it yet, but it's a Megaman 2 hack.

Pics from Toxic Man Stage:

I want to try to put the Toxic Seahorse theme in.  I'm not good with music, but I'm going to see if I can compose something.  If anyone wants to help with the music, that would be awesome.  You'll be put in the credits as my music guy! :)

Did someone say music guy?

Do you need original music, or Toxic Seahorse's theme in NES tune? And which format?

The question was not if you are a hacker - but rather if you are ready to become one...?


I'm a total noob. Not really. I can only make music and pixels, and was only asking for help to insert my music in SMB3.

I know a little bit about NES/GB limitations, to help me make chiptunes/sprites. But that's all.

I've done music hacking with the N-SPC engine, but I've always wanted to work out how SMB3's music engine worked because in the Airship Theme, the note lengths for the first few DPCM samples (the Tom Tom drums) are too long! Compare the original version to the SNES remake.

Does that mean you can help me and Dougeff?

That'd be fantastic!


I know, but I'm not a hacker. I can only compose MIDI and draw pixelart.

Hey, thanks. No. I got zero experience with hacking. Like, I messed up an EarthBound ROM a bit, once.

Yes, the link should lead you to a EP I made in 2014.
I have plenty of new music done, including NES/GB/SEGA chiptunes, but I don't have internet at home so I can't upload them now (I'll try next week).

No, I never tried it. Can I make new music and put it in SMB3 with it?


Welcome aboard the crazy train. SMB3 might take a while, but has good editors. Do you have any previous game hacking experience?

Any links to your music?

Ever tried famitracker NES music tracker?

I'm not a hacker, and know nothing about hex editing.

No tools for this? I can only compose music/draw pixelart.

(I searched and couldn't find a precise answer to that question.)

I want to make a hack for Mario 3. I just want to change graphics, and if possible, music and sound effects.

I'm a music composer, but not a hacker. Is there a way to make new music and sound effects for SMB3?

(Most of the music is done.)

Hi. I'm a music composer, and pixel artist.

I want to make a SMB3 graphic/music hack.
