Super Mario Bros. Special for NES - Modifications?
« on: August 30, 2014, 06:46:41 pm »,

I wish I could upload attachments from my hard drive, but until then the only way I can insert an image is taking one from another site.

What I am interested in is adding a jump board or two at ground level during the pipe intro screens for Worlds 4-2 and 8-2, so that Mario automatically jumps over the pit to the platform with the pipe leading to the underground (4-2) or water (8-2) stage, so that this part of the level remains auto-scrolling. The gap between the castle and the pipe in the 4-2 intro is wider, so about three jump boards may be required.

However, unlike the intro pipes for worlds 1-2, 2-2, 3-1, 4-2, 8-2 and 8-3, 4-2's pipe that leads to the underground part of the level is a straight upward-facing pipe rather than a "J" or "reverse L" pipe.

aside from modifications, why not accurately reproduce SMB Special but with improved music?
