Hello! It's a me Ndymario. This thread will talk about how to edit, what works/doesn't, and how to play custom levels. Without further a-do, Lets a go!

I The basics

How do I make/edit the levels?


This is really simple, first off (if you don't have it already), you'll need to grab a copy of the NSMBe. I recommend the latest
version as it has all the features that will be talked about in this tutorial.

(Here's the link http://nsmbhd.net/download/)

Next, you will need to obtain a US rom of NSMB. I'm not allowed to tell you where to find one, but a quick Google search should do the trick

Now once you have acquired a rom if it is a ".7z" file, continue reading. If it's a ".nds" file skip to the next part
If the end of the file name is ".7z", you will need to download 7zip, and extract the rom. If you need an explanation as to how to do that, just do a quick Google search and you'll find a tutorial, I promise you.

II Making the levels

Now here is where the fun part comes into play, you get to make your own levels!

Ok, first open your ROM with NSMBe5

----------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT IF YOU PLAN TO USE DS DOWNLOAD PLAY FOLLOW THESE STEPS FIRST

1) ON the top bar click "Tools/Options"

2) Check the box beside "DLP FRIENDLY"

3) Return to "Level Listing"
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Now open the tab Mario vs Luigi

Now to begin double click on "SMB 1-1"

You should now have a screen like this

*Insert Screenshot

Now for a beginner, here are some things to keep in mind

1) Always keep the same amount of "Big Stars", this will save you a crash later

2) Only use enemies that are in the level already*, this will save you a crash
*we will talk more abt this later

3) Don't change the size of the level (vertically and horizontally)
Posted by MarioKart7z
I think changing the size of the level is fine as long as the amount of screens (16x16 squares) in length is a multiple of 2
And you really don't have to worry about it at all if you don't plan on using wrap-around


4) Most important of all, Have fun, but don't go overboard with level design

III Playing the Levels

Now I will cover both Multi Cart And Download Play

Multi Cart - The easiest way to do this. First off you will need 2 Flash cards to use the ROMS you just edited. Important-You have to put the exact same rom file on each flash card. After that just start MvL normally

Download Play - Harder Way - See the problem with download play is that if the Signature check fails the game won't download, so that's why you had to follow the important step earlier. The game can still fail to download if you do something wrong, or a stage has a conflict in it, so start over and just try again if this happens

IV List of working sprites

Ok so if you want to use more than just the enemies in the level already, here are some enemies that are confirmed to work

148: Goomba
149: Koopa Troopa
27: Bill Blaster (Bullet Bill launcher)
95: Spin Block
23: Pipe Piranha Plant (Facing up)
24: Pipe Piranha Plant (Facing down)
25: Pipe Piranha Plant (Facing right)
26: Pipe Piranha Plant (Facing left)
28: Bob-omb
210: MvsL Battle Star
71: Stone wall moving up & down
72: Stone wall moving left & right
And More https://nsmbhd.net/wiki/Mario_vs_Luigi/

This was a tutorial on how to hack MvL for Beginners, if you have any questions feel free to ask, until then, See you next time!

Hello! It's a me Ndymario!
*Assuming you have read the beginners guide to MvL hacking*

So you've mastered MvL hacking, and want to do more with it, well today, I will talk about more of the advanced stuff, so Let's a go!

What else can I do, the game is so limited!


I'm glad you asked, well there is this thing called ASM hacking.

What is it you ask, well to keep things simple, you can mod the code of the game
(more on that here https://nsmbhd.net/forum/8-asm-hacking/)

If you don't want to make any mods, that's ok, I'll show you some ASM hacks that have to do with MvL and how to use them

The first one on our list is the "No Sprite Set Limitation" hack. To keep things simple, This allows you to use any sprite set! But the catch here is that you can no longer use Battle Stars but more on that later

(link https://nsmbhd.net/thread/1095-no-more-sprite-set-limitation-in-mvsl/)

Next up on our list is "1-1 in MvL". This allows you to put 1-1 in MvL! This requires you to have the no sprite set mod, also you have to remove some sprites (see post)

(Link http://nsmbhd.net/thread/1299-coop-experiment-getting-1-1-into-multiplayer/)

Using these 2 hacks together you can make race levels! Which means you race to the Goal Pole instead of getting stars.

Now I'm not going into how to use/import asm hack, but just look around the ASM hacking section and you will find ample tutorials

NOTE ASM HACKED MVL STAGES ONLY WORK WITH MULTI-CART!!!

Unless

NOTE ASM HACKED MVL STAGES ONLY WORK WITH MULTI-CART NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

This is not true. Included in the ASM-Template is the "noOverlaySig" ASM hack. This hack completely disables overlay signature checking allowing you to freely use ASM hax in DLP


Here is an ASM list of working sprites
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xyklOjKl8N1RfUvIrOeN-gz6LUcaWiHDexzWZnlsAFg/edit?usp=sharing

That was how you have advanced MvL stages, hope you enjoyed. See you next time

I Prologue

I was messing around with the boss stage in w4 in MvL, well I missed a jump and started swimming. I thought to my self I thought swimming made the game crash, so then I ported 1-A into MvL here are the results

I think it works because of the always load boss partial ASM hack but who knows

I just wanted to say that the circle screen thing is used after you beat the game and peach kisses Mario, since you said it went unused

Sry for bump

I have been trying to get this to work, but it won't. I opened 2 instances of DeSuME (wifi compatible - look at uploader under tools and you will see it) on one instance I had NSMB-->MvL-->Another Owner-->Mario, and the other instance I had NSMB-->MvL-->Another Owner-->Luigi. The instance with Luigi said Ndyluigi Mario has appeared, I got excited, I press Yes...then the emulator SLOWED DOWN, I was thinking it might work, but it finally said Ndyluigi left (aka connection failed). I have a good pc but I want other people to try this so we may have MvL Emulated!

NOTES FOR SMART PEOPLE: I was looking around in memory viewer and 02FFFFC0 (around there) had the description for if you used DS Download play, so maybe we can do something with that

EDIT:02FFFF90 has to continuous values while "looking" for a match

EDIT2:02FFFC30, another counter

EDIT3: *ARM7* starting at 04000400 crazy counters

Good Luck! ~~Ndymario

The only thing endless about Endless Earth is how many Endless claims of how it's going to be good

SPOILER ALERT: It won't be any good

Last time I checked there wasn't a With ASM Hack section

Also with Skawo's always load Boss particle hack, water can work and other things (I think)

Ok so today (9/21/16) I was browsing ASM hacking page, then I stumbled upon "Always Load Boss Particles", the first thing that came to mind was to see if this made Mega Goomba work, so I copied the boss room, got rid of the green rising platforms, and ?switch, then ran it on my Ds. The game is very glitchy when running this boss and tends to desync, once the boss key tries to spawn, the game freezes, so I will upload videos of the rest of the BOSSES and see what will happen, so stay tuned.

EDIT 1 (9/22/16)
----------------
Did some testing I can confirm that Lakithunder, Montytank, and Bowser (from 1-1), all crash the game in their boss rooms and respectful tile sets/backgrounds, will try to put them in mega gommba's boss room as mega goomba works. Also regarding the Mega Goomba, it doesn't matter who kills the boss on Luigi's screen it says "Luigi Loses", but nothing on Mario's (Due to game freeze(?) - see edit 2

EDIT 2 (9/25/16)
----------------
Skawo was kind enough to answer my request, and he made "No Boss Key" asm hack. Due to this you can now beat the boss without it crashing. But, the catch here is that you can't "officially" beat the boss since there is no key to grab. Also no matter who gets the last hit on luig's screen it says luigi loses, nothing ever shows up on Mario's. In the end you can have a very desynced battle that you can never officially end

*Credit to Skawo for the ASM

Anyway, have something doable, can you make the coins not act like red coins in MvL (8 coins = powerup, want that removed)

Even so, you need something more original that that, for example Newer Super Mario! (don't take that joke seriously)

anyway like Super Mario Blast from the past or something

Otherwise keep up the good work!

You have false advertising, Super Mario endless Earth isn't made by you, it's mostly made by skaow with all the ASM hacks you've "asked" for

These look awful, there are lots of parts that weren't touched.


Wow, rude, also have some respect, he says it took him 4 days and you just shoot it down immediately, now I'm not saying live and breath this texture hack, just wait for him to release more/fix things
