Late into April Fool's... but what the heck...
I'm wondering what you folks might be able to do in order to make the timer tick down from 1,000 seconds when you complete any level in Super Mario Bros. (Super Mario All-Stars version only) or Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan) that isn't a castle level? The trick is to land on the flagpole with the timer reading 000 but without dying.
Normally, this glitch will only execute the 1,000 seconds (and your extra 50,000 points) in the castle (the x-4) levels, and only on SMB2J (both original and SMAS) and the SMAS version of SMB; the original NES version of SMB does not have a time bonus instruction for the castle levels.
What instruction(s) would I change in the ROMs for these NES titles in order to make the timer go down from 1,000 on flagpole levels if Mario or Luigi touches the pole on 000 without dying?
