Moderator's note: this patch is currently incompatible with SA-1 because of hijack overlap. Other than that, it's a pretty cool patch. It gets a lot better for people with some ASM skill since it's so customizible. Note that it does require you to set up your own menu though.
Reference to Super Mario All-Stars, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's IslandSuper Mario Bros. Deluxe, Super Mario Bros. 3Mix (hack) and New Super Mario Bros., but I'm too lazy to make a pause menu similar to these.
