How can I change "SUPER MARIOWORLD" part in this thingy that appears when you load smw?


Times New Roman is like whole wheat bread

It can be done through an easter egg feature in Lunar Magic. Keep in mind that doing this will lock your hack so it can't be opened in LM (and you might not be able to unlock it afterwards), so you'll want to do this as a very last step if at all.

You can also hex-edit the name with a small patch (look up a hex editing tutorial), but IIRC that will also make LM treat the ROM as locked.


is there a way to change it without locking the rom? if there isn't, I will just do it when I finish my hack.

Nope. I've experimented with this in the past, and changing the internal ROM name to anything else will simply not let you open it in Lunar Magic. It needs to be the last step you take, as WYE said.

Also, just in case you're curious, the hex edit used to change it is as follows:

org $00FFC0

..except change SUPER MARIOWORLD to whatever you want the new name to be. Make sure you leave the quotation marks in place.

EDIT: For future reference, this thread inspired me to throw this into the hex edit repository. It will probably be useful to have, since LM's feature can't be used to undo the changes.
Btw locking the rom with LM does change the name but it also edits some other values from my research, however there is a tool that will undo this even though with the newest LM results are mixed and the tool is a bit older at this point.
Following what K.T.B. said is probably the best, easiest and safest way to change the internal rom name.
