It's fine that you're new to all this, and I don't mean to be rude, but did you seriously not try to do a Google search?

Xdelta is a type of patch file, which means that it only contains all of the changes between Super Mario Bros. and the 2-Player version. The file you have isn't a ROM of the game in any form, you must patch this file to a Super Mario Bros. (World) NES ROM. (World means the global version, as opposed to Super Mario Bros. (E), which would be the European version.) I cannot tell you where to obtain ROMs, as it is against the rules here. You could use this tool to patch xdelta files: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/598/ :thumbsup: (Also, if the Super Mario Bros. ROM you download is in a .zip folder, you usually can't patch to a zip folder, you have to move the .nes file out of that folder and patch the file to that)
