    You only get this opportunity once, right? What could be more evil than some Mario hacking? :thumbsup:

    I'll start by saying this is the stupidest text system I have ever seen. SMW doesn't have a line terminating character like normal games - nooo, that would make SENSE. It instead has an an entire ALPHABET of characters that serve as line terminators - IE there is say 40 for a and C0 for a-and-then-go-to-the-next-line. And there is a counterpart for EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER. I'd love to know who thought this was a good idea as opposed to ONE LINE TERMINATOR CHARACTER.

    Moving on.... these are all for Super Mario World (U) [!].

    0x2A5D9 - Welcome text on main screen
    0x2A666 - Switch Palace
    0x2A6E2 - Yoshi's House
    0x2A76A - Yoshi first found
    0x2A7E3 - Dotted line blocks hint
    0x2A86A - Item storage box hint
    0x2A8E4 - Shell usage hint
    0x2A968 - Spin jump hint
    0x2A9F6 - Mid-way gate hint
    0x2AA79 - Dragon Coins hint
    0x2AAF1 - Stomp-jump hint
    0x2AB7D - Area already cleared hint
    0x2ABF6 - Bonus Stars Hint
    0x2AC7F - Fence-clinging hint
    0x2AD09 - Kill the first boss hint
    0x2AD8B - Cape usage hint
    0x2AE15 - Alternate exits hint
    0x2AE90 - Ghost House tormenting ;)
    0x2AEEA - Screen sliding hint
    0x2AF76 - Star World Enterances hint
    0x2B005 - The level with the time & coin count deciding the exit hint
    0x2B007 - Special Zone hint

    The alphabet for these (not counting some fucked-up-yet accessable characters via hex) is (ones with a ~ after are linebreak characters):

    00=A
    01=B

    I'm aware there's more than just the hints, I'm not quite done searching this game yet. I'll post more later on =P

    EDIT: DAMN YOU RETRO AND YOUR LACK OF HTML

    Still a thing. Oldbie
    Alternatively you could just download Lunar Magic and edit the game's text in that =P

    Well done on having an evil number of posts.

    Well, yeah, but the original idea for this was possibly an STE template, until I discovered how stupid the format is.


    Plus the whole 666 thing =P

    Cool stuff! I did a bit of text hacking with Lunar Magic onceā€”its built in text editor is really crappy about formatting, so I had to manually edit a lot of the spacing. Turned out pretty good, though. =P
