Hello, my name is Kevin. I'm very new to this site, and I'm not quite experienced with hacking. I have been to this website before, but I never thought to get an account until now, not long after I figured out how to patch IPSs. So, before I attempt to make a hack, I was wondering, could someone here who is experienced point me in the direction of a few popular hacks I could check out? That might be helpful to me in the future. I'm not the king of person who gets offended or uncomfortable if personal questions are asked(i.e. country, age, religion, etc.), so ask away, as long as it's not house address or phone number(I don't know why you would ask ANY of that stuff in the first place.) I also have a few questions about this site, too, but I'm not going to ask any of those until I have at least one response, so I know that someone is reading this. Thanks for taking the time to suffer through- I mean read this, please respond.

Thanks! I heard something about there being a chatroom or something for this site. But when I tried to go to it, the page 404'd. Is it something wrong with my computer or the site?
A few days ago I created my account and made a thread introducing myself. Unfortunately, since I was new, I didn't realize there was a thread for introductions. After a while of looking around at the various forums, I found a forum specifically made for introductions that went obsolete.

So I feel the need to ask, why is this necessary?!?! Instead of keeping up the forum to help introductions stay findable, that goes obsolete and a thread is made for it? The description even says the forum was made so introductions wouldn't get buried in the others if it was a thread, so why was it removed?
Just in case all of you forgot over the last three years, that M A R I O guy created some kind of sequel to his MARIO hack that, when opened in LM (Lunar Magic) showed a bunch of inaccessible messages. The one I find the most interesting is the one in level 13B that states "Transmission begins at 3-25-2014." Well, that date is starting to get nearer, does anyone have any ideas as to what this could mean?

EDIT 1: No matter what i do, I can't open it in LM. I just get a message saying it has a wrong title or isn't a ROM.
I would turn the brightness and volume up and the lights down as I would look back at those old MARIO threads from a while back.
February 6th
I keep thinking it's a new hack or something, but his account's been disabled.
Well... Stinks to see it was removed. Anyways, is there a hack removal log thing up for his sequel, mariocave/super Mario ultimatum/the great cave trek?
I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but I tried to open a hack in LM, but I got the message "The ROM either has the wrong game title, or is in the wrong format."

I know for a fact that it IS the right format, because I have opened ROMs with it before, but how could a title change whether or not it runs properly? Please help!
I like being able to take a look at the internal workings of a level so I can see how certain effects were done, how they could be replicated, etc. (also it's simply just fun to get a behind-the-scenes look at things and such).


It's not ultra-important or anything like that though, so it's not the end of the world if fixing it can't be done!
Woah, you can move entire threads to different locations? Well, that's just dandy, in the past I've seen staff members just close threads that aren't where they belong.
RLM didn't work. I'm going to attempt to try the second thing you said, though I don't really know how.
Wait a minute... How the heck did you know the message was in level 13B? I knew that, but I never said it in my post. the reason why I knew what level it was from is because of this picture here:

http://kn0p3xx.sonicgamesdimension.net/mirror/SNES/MARIO_CP/mariocave03-25-2014.png

As far as I know, the only way to see that message is to open it in Lunar Magic. But I can't do that, no matter what I do.

I made another thread about the matter of opening the rom in LM, and one of the staff members said something about
"Editing the internal ROM name at PC address x81C0 in a hex editor to match that of a clean ROM's", but I've never done anything like that before, and I'm not sure how.

EDIT 1: Never mind what I said above. I didn't realize that I DID in fact say it in my post.
...I've never used asar before. I downloaded it, with that link you gave me and extracted all the files, and I pasted that code into notepad, with the asm extension. I have windows 7, and it recognized it as an asm, but I don't know what to do from there.
(restricted)
Using asar, I was able to open it in Lunar Magic using lui37 and HOTL's strategy. I was able to look at all of the messages.

All right, so first things first, I looked through the overworld. As far as I can tell it's not different at all. However, I don't think any of the switch palaces are accessible. Completing the secret exits for them don't open the way there.

I spent a while looking through level 104, which, to my knowledge, is the only edited level in the hack.

So we all know how the level starts. It's a completely new level, with pits and enemies abound, and a message box right at the beginning, stating:

-POINT OF ADVICE-
Taking one of the
pipes in the level
will lead to the
Pipe Maze, which
hides the secret
exit!

Go on through the level and none of the pipes work.
Finally you come across a message box with the message:

There's no way out of here

Then there's a small stretch of land, with a checkpoint before a pit.
NOTE: I discovered you can clear the jump with a cape, but I've never been able to do it with yoshi alone.

If you leave the level after obtaining the checkpoint and come back, you will spawn at another platform with a purple pipe that takes you to level 20.

Level 20 is just a small room with two pipes. One orange, leading to level 26, and one green, leading to level 21.

If you chose to go through the orange pipe, you will be on a stone bridge of sorts. keep going and you will see a green pipe leading you to level 24. The platform ends there, but there's an invisible wall stopping you from jumping off.

If you chose the green pipe, you will be greeted by a stretch of gray blocks with a pipe sticking out of the right wall. Unlike most levels in this messed up place, this one has a hidden message. If you look at it in LM and scroll past the wall, you can see a message made of the blocks: I DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD BE HERE

This was actually a recurring message in the original MARIO hack. It appeared as a message in one level that could not be reached by any normal means, and it was also the message in the message in Yoshi's House you got by hitting the block with Yoshi.

Anyway, the pipe leads to level 25 which has two pipes, a silver one, which leads to lvl 22, and a green one which leads to lvl 24.

We'll get into the silver one later, but for now, if you enter lvl 24, you'll see a ton of different colored pipes.

All of the gray pipes take you back to lvl 25.
All of the green pipes take you to lvl 23.
All of the yellow pipes take you to lvl 26.
There is only one blue pipe, but you can't go through it. However, there is a bottomless pit imediately afterwords that takes you to lvl 84.

Do you remember how MARIO crashes when you finish it? Well, that's because it takes you to lvl 0, which, in that hack, is spammed with so many sprites it can't load. But if that's bad, lvl 84 here is a lot worse. LM almost crashed, and it was going slow, and I have a really fast computer.

Don't even get me started on lvl 22. It's the glitchiest level in the hack. There are so many screwed up sprites and textures, as well as the most random structures and designs. I could go into detail, describing every little detail about this level, but then this page would be a mile long. All I'm going to point out, is that at one point, the level almost looks like the beginning of world 1-1 in Super Mario Bros., followed by the message "HELLO". There's a deadend that is right by a pipe, taking you to lvl 27.

Lvl 27 is a long stretch of land with a door leading to the accursed lvl 84, but after that is more blocks forming the words:

I SHAPED A BRAVE NEW WORLD AND WE WERE THE ONLY ONES WITHIN

After that, there are no more words for a few seconds. Until...

BUT NOW THERE IS NOTHING COME HOME

After that there is a pit with pipes two low to see, all of which taking you to lvl 84.

I'm thinking of making a video about this on my channel... What do you guys think?

As I said already, that is the only level actually edited. I looked at the "Castle Beaten" messages to see if anything was there, but they were all empty black spaces except for donut plains, which says:

there is nothing

Now for all the edited messages:

I find this all to be very interesting. Any theories?
I just figured it out, but thanks anyway.

Oh yeah, and...


IT WORKED!
What about IP Addresses? How does it concern me?
Is it against the rules to create a new account after being banned? Anyway, if it is, we can't be sure it's him, can we?

Seriously, this is the same guy who can put repeated text into a notepad file of an image without corrupting it.

The same guy who can put elaborate, detailed images in sound files to appear when ran under a spectrograph with ease.

The same guy who can easily come up with poetic, creepy messages with sad and depressing meanings, while giving people nightmares and ruining lives-- with nothing but a freaking NINTENDO GAME.


Seriously, do we REALLY think we know what he's capable of? He just might try to hack the sight and change how his IP Address is read so he doesn't get caught. If he can do that, he might even change it to the same one as someone he doesn't like to frame them.



And if that isn't possible and I'm being an idiot, maybe he could've just moved and got a NEW IP Address? A lot could've happened in 3 years.
