(Sorry if this isn't the correct thread to post this question on, but I'm new here)

I'm very new to the Super Mario World hacking community, and am faced with a problem. You see, I own a Mac, with no Windows in my house, and would like to play SMW Rom hacks. It may just be me, but it seems like there's minimal support within the smw community when it comes to apple computers. I'm able to emulate Super Mario World itself, but can't figure how to emulate hacks. I've tried several tutorials but none of them have worked for me. It would be great if someone could link me to a tutorial that has worked for them, or instruct me. Thanks! #tb{:]}

SIDENOTE: This question will likely sound dumb to an experienced smw hacker, so if it does, I'm sorry.

I've been looking through tutorials for a while, but I haven't found out how a mac user, such as myself, would be able to play rom hacks. Do I have to use Wine, or is there a method specifically for Macs?

There are a bunch of Mac patchers. This one, for example.

I'd recommend VMware Fusion (or any other virtualisation software you can find)

Screw that. Use Wine, it's easier. Virtualization works, but Wine has never given me any trouble.


Every time I apply the IPS patch on my mac and then try to open the rom, I get a black screen... What am I doing wrong? I'm using OpenEmu as my emulator.

Is the ROM you're applying the IPS to clean? That's usually the issue in those cases.


Yes, I got it from EmuParadise

Or compile it yourself. Or use the JavaScript version.

I recommend option #3.


Ah I see. After choosing my SuperMarioWorld.sfc ROM on the linked website, I got a message saying "This is not a clean Super Mario World ROM. A clean Super Mario World ROM should be either 524288 bytes or 524800 bytes, but this file is 2097664 bytes.".

I'm still unclear on how I'm supposed to get a 'Clean' rom though.

In my previous post about how I was having difficulties playing ROM hacks on OS X, several people told me that I needed a clean ROM of Super Mario World, and then linked me to this site. Sure enough, Js Rom Clean displayed this message: "This is not a clean Super Mario World ROM. A clean Super Mario World ROM should be either 524288 bytes or 524800 bytes, but this file is 2097664 bytes." Unfortunately though, the website did not link me to a 'Clean' ROM. Does this website offer an option to Clean my Smw ROM? I'm getting very frustrated trying to play Smw ROM hacks on my Mac computer, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! #tb{:]}

This tool will attempt to clean an unclean ROM, if possible. If it's not able to, you'll have to search Google for one. We can't link you one from here, though, due to the questionable legality of doing so, which we'd rather just avoid.


Well, I finally got it to work! Thanks, man #tb{:]}

I also checked out your TASing Youtube channel. It was pretty cool, so I subscribed.

Not looking for a keyboard configuration, I'm honestly just curious as to how long it took you to get used to the keyboard controls. How hard was it at first?

It never really was that hard for me to use the keyboard (I've been playing smw with it for at least 6 years), and I'm much better at it than a controller. People who played on a controller first will think otherwise though.


Thanks for your input! I also find the keyboard to be much easier than a controller (recently bought an ibufallo usb snes controller and it feels cheep, plastic-y, and flimsy, so I just reverted back to keyboard)

Okay, okay, I know this question sounds stupid, but let me explain. Lately I've been trying to play Kaizo Mario (because I hate myself), and expectedly, I'm stuck on the very first part of the very first level. I mapped 'create save state' to '1' on the number dial pad, and mapped 'load save state' to '0' on the dial pad. These two buttons feel very unnatural since I'm always accidentally mashing the two buttons. Is there a standard key on that each of these commands are assigned to? If so, please tell me, it'd make things so much easier. Thanks!

Personally it all comes down to preference on what you like to do, personally if I am going to be playing a kaizo hack I map them to buttons on my controller for ease of use.

Also this is more of a gaming question so moving it down there.

Sorry, I wasn't aware (new here)

Lately I've been trying to create SM64 hacks. I downloaded ROM Extender, and then tried selecting my SM64 ROM, but it said:

"Not a valid ROM. Please open a ROM that has been extended with the latest version of the Mario 64 ROM Extender (currently 1.2b)."

I'm assuming it wants me to clean my ROM, so if someone could link me to a Super Mario 64 ROM cleaner, that would be great. Thanks in advance! #tb{:]}

OpenEmu (OS X user here), not shelling out for SD2SNES.

After playing through many ROM hacks, I've had a large crave to create Super Mario World hacks. Every time I open LunarMagic though, thinking that the level is on the edge of my fingertips, my mind goes blank. Knowing me, the most efficient way for me to learn quality level design/operating some of the more complex things in LunarMagic would be to learn it through a hack. Please share any and every that you know of if you'd like. Thanks in advance #tb{:]}

I play SMW on OS X using OpenEmu and I can confirm that it's pretty great.

One day, I had been using the ground tiles in Lunar Magic and everything had been perfectly fine. The next, I search up 'Ground' under the 'Objects' window and the only thing that popped up was a wide scale ground with coin blocks on top




What the heck happened?

TL:DR; Follow this: File>Restore>Restore ROM to a previous version.


I can't thank you enough, and I appreciate your awesome help! Restoring the ROM seemed to work. You've saved the soul of a noob ROM hacker :D Cheers, mate.

Hi everyone! I joined this community a while ago, but I've been inactive for around six or so months. I just wanted to say hello again! Last time I was on smwc, I had a mac. Fortunately, I bought a decent desktop windows, meaning I can now use LunarMagic without it being super slow. So... yeah. Just wanted to let everyone know I'm back, and should be releasing my first ROM Hack very soon. Can't wait to become involved in the ROM hacking community again!:)

I asked this in the IRC chat, and most people recommended LMSW, but I'd much rather play the level in game than in an internal emulator. Anway, I am currently making a SMW level that is far into SMW (Valley of Bowser). The problem is, I'm only on level 2 right now, and I would prefer not to beat every level until Valley of Bowser. How would I go about doing this?
