Classic Mario Hacking Forum Rules

Link Thread Closed
Welcome to the Classic Mario Hacking forum! This forum is the official home of all things NES-Mario hacking (with a little sprinkle of Super Mario All-Stars, too). If you love a bit of 8-bit goody-ness, you're certainly in the right place! In addition to these forum-specifc rules, the SMW Central Site-Wide Rules still apply here.


About This Forum

This forum covers everything ROM hacking for all four of the original Super Mario Bros. games on the NES (and its peripheral FDS - Famicon Disk System).

You can ask hacking-related questions; show off your work in progress or completed hacks, tools, and resources; and just generally talk about hacking this set of games!



Forum Rules


1. Do not link to or request commercial ROM files (.nes/.fds) here.

This includes the required FDS bios file needed for SMB2J, as it is also copyrighted material. Please link to .bps files only.

1a. Do not link to suspicious sites or files.
If you see a link to a malicious file or harmful website, then please report it to one of the Forum Moderators. If you are looking for tools, we have a list of the essentials in this thread.


2. This forum is only for discussing ROM hacking of the NES/FDS Super Mario Bros. series, or their Super Mario All-Stars counterparts.

For clarification, this includes the following games:
  • Super Mario Bros. [NES]
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (JPN) [FDS]
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA) [NES]
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 [NES]
  • Super Mario All-Stars [SNES]

This list may be expanded upon as support for ROM hacking other 2D Mario games grows in the future. If the game you're hacking isn't listed here, and doesn't have its own section otherwise, you should post in the Misc. ROM Hacking forum.


3. When making a thread to showcase your hack, you must include screenshots and/or videos.

Screenshots and/or videos are important for us to see the progress you have made and what your hack looks like. When posting screenshots, we recommend using your filebin to upload the images. For videos, you can embed YouTube videos as part of your posts.

A Note About Submitting Hacks/Resources

You may have noticed that there are not new hack and resource sections to go along with this new forum. While we would love to provide moderated sections, we currently do not have the volunteers necessary to manage these sections. If demand from these new areas of ROM hacking proves large enough, we can start looking to add new site sections to the relevant game(s).



Should you have a question about this forum, please feel free to PM one of the moderators of this forum (listed under the "Moderated by:" section on the Forum Index). Please don't PM the moderators with questions related to hacking the game, use the forum for that instead.

We also have a #misc-hacking channel on our official SMW Central Discord server where you can discuss Classic Mario Hacking, so please join there to hang out with us!
