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)

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!

This is actually quite expansive, good job! I don't think I'll ever really do MVL hacking, but it's nice to have this info if I do, especially the level/sprite restrictions.

Also, I always thought you used google translate. Huh.

IDK. Maybe I was getting you mixed up with mico, but I just always thought that for whatever reason.
