Title: Fix for Super Mario Adventure
Post by: SkinnyV on February 26, 2013, 02:15 AM
For those of you trying to play Super Mario Adventure on your Everdrive N8, you will need to re-patch your original Super Mario Bros. 3 rom with the following patch and also put this blank save file in your Everdrive N8 save folder. Rename the SRAM file to match your Super Mario Adventure rom. You'll need Super Mario Bros. 3 (U) (PRG1) [!].nes from a goodnes romset to use that combined patch.

What the patch does:


The combined patch was made by Infiniteneslives from NESDev to save trouble for people with no Hex Editing experience. I also included the original individual patch and read-me from aWal for those of you interested in the technical side of thing.

P.S: As of now, the Everdrive N8 seem to put *.nes extension to it's save file so until it is sorted out just rename your save file to match your nes rom and put *.nes extension. (Apparently, this is intentional and won't be fixed)

I totally missed this.  I found another romhack with the exact same bug:

If it's not too much trouble I really think we should get this one going too.

*edit*

This patch works great awesome!  I combined it with my rgb fix patch to make a rgb friendly version:

Mario adventure runs on a rgb ppu and a n8 no problem (you don't even need an empty save file for the n8).  Just apply this patch to your standard mario 3 rom and it'll turn it into a version of mario adventure that runs on anything and everything.

You shouldn't confuse people by adding a un-needed patch to it. Or at least explain it's only for those RGB modded nes, your post make it sound like it's needed. Or if it's not what it does then at least explain what it is. How is it a more universal version if it only cater to people with swapped ppu?

You also removed all the read-me files and credit for the original patch which isn't cool IMO.

Can someone repost the Super Mario Adventure patch fix for the Everdrive N8? just realized that this is one of the few games that does not work for me and the above link is dead. Thanks.

I don't have SkinnyV's actual archive, but the patch is still available from a dropbox link posted by infiniteneslives near the bottom of this page:

http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?t=5177&start=90 (http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?t=5177&start=90)

The blank save file mentioned in the first post is not needed.  I tested without it, and the game saves and loads fine.

So as a new everdrive owner, I'm really confused. Do I need to do something in order to play Mario Adventure or not? Thanks!

Thanks for the link but being so new to this, I have no idea how to use it. I'm assuming I must use it to play Mario Adventure and would appreciate further guidance.

Its been a while and I’m not sure if its still needed but did you follow the instruction and put the blank sram file on your sd card?

Tried your solution step by step. Still have garbled graphics. Just wasn’t meant to be I guess.

Hi, I have a PAL Nes and the resulting rom is NTSC. Is it somehow possible to get a PAL resulting rom? Could I apply the patch to a certain european smb3 rom version?

Thanks

Should not be a problem at all on Everdrive N8. NTSC ROMs work rather fine on my PAL NES, but as always slower than on NTSC. Many/most retail games run slower over here, too btw. Nintendo simply kept it the way it is and did not bother to get the games on same speed on PAL systems in most cases.

I am very sure that the patch is NOT working on a PAL ROM as the game is different in quite a few parts. But the only way to know is trying. If the game burns down your house and eats your cat then... not our fault ^^
