Yes, I meant Mario 1/3, which is a hack of SMB1, not 3. It's actually included in the Shatterhand link you provided.

Oh, gosh. You really got my hopes up for an actual co-op SMB3.  :P

Cool!

"Is this the first ROM-hack ever that makes an NPC playable?"
Нет, look at Wrecking Crew :)

Far from it. Mario 3 with Cheep Cheep for one. And there's the SMB Bullet Bill Kill hack. And Super Mario World 2p controls enemies

Somehow this hack is weird (I did try to patch the right rom, but could make a mistake?)
I sort of control Pluto when I press buttons, but he also moves on his own when I don't control him? Is it right?

Pluto?

Oh, you mean Bluto. Yeah, it´s a bit janky.

Yes, Bluto :) my mistake.

The hack still needs work, but it's a nice idea and sort of a fun already.
I was trying to think of more such "1 on 1" player vs NPC nes game that can use same type of hack.

Or different types of coop hacks, would be nice to have 2 player Pacman or Arkanoid, like they did on SNES.
Even game like Yie Ar Kung Fu (somehow always read it Air Kung Fu)- would be really great for 2 players!

Does anyone know of a two player simultaneous Galaga NES hack? I know nothing about rom hacking but if the two player SMB is possible I'd imagine having two ships on the bottom wouldn't be impossible.

There's a lot of sprites on the screen but I guess it will be possible if you port it to a different mapper.

But if you want Two Player Galaga I suggest the arcade remake:

I know nothing about rom hacking ,too......
Is it technically possible to make a COOP version of Riot Zone on PC-Engine(TurboGrafx-16)?

This extremely helpful guide needs to be added to the section about Super Mario World Co-op: https://www.reddit.com/r/miniSNESmods/comments/7wyeud/how_to_build_a_working_rom_of_the_super_mario/

Thanks I'll add it. Is this the definitive version of SMW COOP or is it still buggy?

It's technically the definitive version, yes (although it's still buggy).

If only I've known to make coop hacks of games (especially NES ones) I'd make it my main hobby  ::)

DoomJedi

Are there any tutorials on how to learn to make coop hacks to nes games?
Is every game a unique approach....to hack it into more players?

Cyneprepou4uk

Most games are unique. You need to be very proficient in hacking games to begin with. The way to make a coop hack will come to you naturally if that's the case. So start with basic hacking tutorials.

DoomJedi

Thank you for the answer, seem to be quite a challenging hobby that fits experienced hackers only.
I wish someone would make tools to make particular hacks easier.
