Honestly it looks like the text for all 4 of the games are compressed. "which is a bitch
You could open up yy-chr and look through it.
Any garbage that may resemble some or alot of graphics.
Look below it and hit the + button 10-20 times.
It can be a daunting task looking through it.
The only way it could be uncompressed abit more if the programmer for yy-chr would look into it and update his program.
If you go to this address 23d9ff this where the smb3 title screen letter resides at.
Also most of the graphics appear for it.
If you have a good hand at gfx replacement you could really do something to it.
Keep in mind the color of the graphics while replacing.
If you go to this address 1c0200 that might be smb3 over world map letters.
Only way to find out is clip them out save it and test the rom.
I do have to say becarefull of what you remove and replace in the rom.
I believe the english version may have a checksum problems if it isn't saved correctly.
Thus we need a editor to save the changes to the rom so it won't crash upon loading up whatever you or we change.
If you would make a log from time to time and any memembers we could get enough info.
For someone build an editor of some sort, I asked fusoya a while back and he mentioned hes not interested. :/
