Mario vs DK 1 in-game editor found!

Hey Guys!
This could be interesting for you:




I found this through Ram Hacking with VisualBoyAdvance in
Mario vs Donkey Kong (U). I think this is a Debug Mode or maybe an unfinished ingame Editor for Mario vs Donkey Kong. It´s unfinished, because you can´t place every sprite and tile from an world, like the Brickmonster or the lava from Magma Mountain.

This Editor doesn´t work in all levels and if you change a secound time into this mode without returning into the level select the game sometimes crashes. In both Final Fights you aren´t able to place sprites because the game shows you following beta message:



Here is the trick to get into this Mode:

1. Enter a level or a boss fight.

2. Open the Memory viewer in VisualBoyAdvance (enable automatic update).

3. Use the go feature to jump to Offset 30009C4 in IRAM.

4. You should see a Byte which is in a normal level 0D.

5. Change it to 0B.

6. It doesn´t work in every level like 1-1 but in every world there are
levels where it works.

7. If it works you should be now a placeable tile.

Here are the controls of this mode:

D-pad: to move around

B button: remove tiles and sprites

A button: add tiles or sprites

L-R: change to next sprite/tile

select: change to next set of sprite/tiles

start: start level!

If you have problems with the timer you should
change this Ram adress:

3000B54 + 3000B55 Level Timer

Maybe someday will someone finish this in-Game editor.
I hope you enjoy it!

P.S: you can set Marios starting position if you remove mario
and add mario with the editor to the position where he should start.
Wow, that's amazing! I hope to check that out sooner or later!
It's not even close to Halloween, and already Christmas Sales are starting early!
-.-

Hey guys, I just wanted to point out that these isn´t a April
fool, IT´S IN THE GAME! Check this out yourself to find out it´s real. You have just to check which levels are working and which not.
The best level where you can test it is level 1-2.
I just noticed that many people are ignoring this thread, maybe
for this reason so I wanted to make it clear that this is real.
HAAAAAAAAA

I've always wanted a level editor for MvDK before. But, this is getting too complicated, haha. And I'm too lazy and dumb to check out those things.

Still, interesting. :O
Originally a gamecube level editor was planned for Donkey Kong Plus which I guess was going to be an extension to the gameboy game, which later got overhauled a bit for Mario vs DK.

I wonder if this in game editor you found is some sort of remnant of that.
Wow, that's an interresting GBA hack.

Um, no. I tried it myself, and it works. You need to stop thinking everything's a lie, or you might get banned. Seriously, you consider everything like this to be a lie. Here's an idea- Get a non-hacked ROM and try it for yourself. Because you can't say it's a lie until you try it yourself AND SHOW THAT IT'S FALSE. You don't show proof- You just throw out wild allogations. Why?

Back on-topic, could this info possibly be used to create a level editor of our own? I'd assume no, but you never know. :o

Shut up!
If you don't understand me, it isn't my problem.

I've said it's a nice hack, not that it's a big lie.
Learn some fucking English, idiot.

You said it was a hack, and it isn´t one. The level editor is build in-game, it is that it´s just not finished.
You´re the one who should learn some English, idiot.
