SMB3 - Sound Effect Fix

Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3

Description:

This patch fixes the bug notably known for causing the “Extended 1up Sound Effect”. It changes a single instruction (STY to STA) so that the 1up sound effect is correctly masked out by the byte-defined sound effects (e.g. Raccoon tail wag).

Hacking was done by modifying the SMB3 disassembly provided by (captain)southbird. You will need an IPS patch installer to patch the rom such as Lunar IPS.
