ROM Hacking Discussion / SMB1 hud changes
April 13, 2022, 06:15:42 PM
here's a fun question- is it possible to swap out the score counter in the top left of the smb1 screen with say, the lives counter for example? i feel like it would be a relatively simple change but i genuinely cant find any documentation on this without having to deal with the disassembled code

what do you think?
Personal Projects / Let's Kill Iggy! (SMB1 Hack)
November 29, 2018, 03:20:29 PM
This is an extensive hack of Super Mario Bros 1 for the NES I've decided to make.

The basic gist of the story is that Iggy Koopa has broken away from the Koopa empire and decided to gather his group of Koopa rebels into a vast army to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, rather than Bowser's rather uninspired and overused plan to simply grab the Princess and hope for the best. Mario has heard of the plan from a mysterious source and will now infiltrate Iggy's domain to assassinate the son of the king of the Koopa.

Main things that have been changed:-

100% of the graphics are redone to be of the style of SMB3/SMW
Mario/Luigi are now no longer symmetrical so their sprites can be their SMB3 counterparts
Small things like fireball behaviour, enemy speed and block characteristics have been tweaked
All of the palettes have been changed and some sprites now have different ones applied
Mario now turns into big form from fire form when hit, like SMB3
Quite a lot of metatiles have been changed, to accommodate new features
The backdrops are now completely different
And probably more I've forgotten about.

The main reason I'm really doing this is to take advantage of the excellent SMB-remodeler tool. I've just discovered it and it's literally the best thing ever.

The ips for the latest revision is here-

Feedback and criticism would be appreciated! :thumbsup:

Hey, here's an updated version with the start of World 2 done and some polished off bits at the beginning.
