I just had a pretty good idea for your hack (I think anyway). You should eliminate the delay associated with the death music and level loading, make it just respawn you almost immediately! The thing that makes really hard Mario games get under people's skin isn't necessarily the constant dieing, it's the delay you have to endure every time you do. Eliminate the delay in your hack (no matter how insanely difficult it is) and it will be SO much better! I bet you could do it with a few HEX edits.
The title screen looks pretty cool, I like it a lot. I'm gonna give you just one suggestion though, use the SMB patch that'll let you choose between Mario and Luigi.
Get it here.
I'll be keepin' an eye out for this hack.
Why not just edit it to provide infinite lives? I think these insanely difficult hacks should all have infinite lives. That would offset some of the unfairness typically experienced in these types of hacks.Yeah I think that's a better idea.
I don't have it on hand ... but I do remember changing it before. I think a level editor on this site should be able to edit that value. As for having lives above 9, graphics for the lives get corrupted. Other than that, you should be okay.
The data title screen related to the title screen is at the end of the ROM within the game's CHR (it looks like junk)... because the devs were short on space apparently. As for a editing the title screen this utility will do the job, though it's in Japanese...Thank you! I'll try to set up the title screen.
