For some of the bosses & enemies, here's what I came up with:

Change Mouser into Max.
Change Tryclyde into the Four-Headed Bulldog.
Change Birdo into the Apple Bonker.
Change the Shy-Guys into common Blue Meanies.
Change the Ninjis into the Butterfly Stompers.
Change the Bob-ombs into the Countdown Clowns.

Intro - "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
Character Select - "Billy Shears" Fanfare, leading into "A Little Help From My Friends"
Stage Theme 1 - "Getting Better"
"Miss" Music - "NevahCouldBeAnyOtherWay" (The weird thing from the runoff groove)
Sub Space Theme - "Fixing A Hole"
Stage Theme 2 (Indoors) - "Within You, Without You"
Birdo Theme/Boss Theme - "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite"
Stage Clear Fanfare - The Intro to "When I'm 64"
Bonus Stage Fanfare - The "Ahhh ahh ahh ahh" from the intro to "Lovely Rita (Meter Maid)"
Wart's Theme - "Good Morning, Good Morning"
Ending Theme A (freeing the Subcons, Contributor Viewing) - "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)"
Ending Theme B (Mario Sleeping) - "A Day In The Life"
Game Over Fanfare - The harp part at the end of "She's Leaving Home"

Did I miss anything?

Really good ideas you guys!
I'm starting to figure out what I'm supposed to do... and how!
No, music yet. But I guess I'll have to learn. Good thing I'm a musician! I have never used Famitracker though.

I’m switching from Tile Layer Pro to Tile Molester. Boy, what a difference. Now I can actually copy and paste stuff! Sure speed things up.

Update:
- Finished the sprites for the playable characters.
- Switched characters (more like the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s)
- Started to edit enemies

Just a suggestion. You really should improve that title screen, like what I did to Bowsette 2.

Yeah, that's just placeholder. I haven't figured how to remap title screens yet. I actually opened up Bowsette yesterday in Tile Molester just to see what you've done. But I couldn't quite understand.

The colors aren't that great either. Let's say I made it this ugly to remember that I have to fix it. ;)

Here are the things I dont know how to fix:
- Title Screen Graphics
- Music
Any help is much appreciated. Should I post in the Help thread?


I hear some fellow called dtothefourth
released a SMB2 Editor and is apparently working on a music editor. I'll have to investigate that further.

Seems as if you got really lucky there  :)

If I were you, and really serious about following through with this hack, I would consider contacting the developer and maybe get some insight in the music format. Maybe you can help each other out?

In any case - good luck with this project.

TITLE LOGO LAYOUT

20 = y-position
CB = x-position
0A = number of tiles used on that line

SUPER, TM, MARIO, BROS. and 2 are laid out like this:

How about attempting for some patterned/textured blue instead of a solid colour whenever you get the chance?
Is the pool clean?

Frankly I am now amazed as to how nobody ever thought of this before. This is pure genius. Looking forward to it!

And please find a way to squeeze in Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

Personally I'd go with more varied and highly-vibrant colors for the title screen (better fitting of the theme imo), but the design of your latest iteration shows how wonderfully you're improving things!

Considering your dedication to the material and talent, can't wait to see where this goes from here!

I made a post on how to edit the edit the SMB2 USA title screen:
http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=25178.msg346354#msg346354

I should really submit that information to the website.

released a SMB2 Editor and is apparently working on a music editor. I'll have to investigate that further.

Ok, I've learned a whole lot during these weeks!
I'm pretty proud of the sprite editing, I think it's a good representation of The Beatles.


Also, the story! The Beatles are recruited to BE the Protectors of Pepperland aka Sgt. Pepper's Heart Club Band



Well, I'm not finished yet. The music and a lot of graphics are still missing... aaaand custom levels would be cool. I just don't think I have the time for it anytime soon.
If anyone wants to help out, please do!

DEMO 01:

Feedback is appreciated.

This project will be put on hold until the launch of the SMB2 music editor by http://www.dtothefourth.space/

It is in fact a quote from John Lennon in the animated film "Yellow Submarine." Just a little joke.
