After 6 and a half years of plagiarized work, Insectduel took about 8 months to insert all the levels and adjust modifications. You are now able to play all the levels of Frank’s 2nd SMB3 hack for Super Mario All-Stars all the way to Bowser’s Castle. Keep in mind that this is NOT the final version of the hack and is still currently in it’s beta stages. Keep in mind that most levels have corrupted background animations and enemies as it requires the extension of graphics hardcoded by ASM like Super Mario World’s Lunar Magic. It may be a completed hack but it’s still going to be updated and new versions could come at anytime. Improvements are planned such as ExGFX and having Luigi have higher jumps and/or slides than Mario. Help is desperately needed to put out a final version for this project! This hack may or may not have SRAM errors, and it needs to be fixed as soon as possible, even if the checksums are fixed.
The major difference between the NES and SNES versions are the World 3 map. The original World 3-6 and World 3-8 of Frank’s 2nd SMB3 hack has been SWITCHED around due to the music pointers in the secret mushroom houses. Also, the pipe after clearing World 3 Fortress #2 now leads to the spade panel but you still need the hammer to break it.
World 8 of Frank’s 2nd SMB3 hack now has extended levels due to a huge amount of free space to add more levels compared to the NES version which has a limited amount of space. It includes the 4 hand traps and 2 fortresses. It also has better ASM coding features for an even greater experience.
This rom hack holds 2 IPS Patches. One is the original Super Mario All-Stars and the other for Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World. Both of these IPS patches requires a header. It is not compatible with Super Mario Collection (Japanese version of Super Mario All-Stars). So what are you waiting for? Play this ROM hack right now!
This hack was originally created by Frank Maggiore.
