SMB2j MMC3 Hack Text Error

SMB2j MMC3 Hack Text Error
by on (#148743)
While playing through Loopy's MMC3 hack of SMB2, I saw that at the ending, it's says "Hurrah to Mario". This is fine and all, but I was playing as LUIGI. It then said, "Thank You Mario". To see if this was a new glitch, I played through the FDS version of SMB2, and to my surprise, It said "Hurrah to Luigi" and "Thank You Luigi". To see if the text "Hurrah to Luigi" and "Thank you Luigi" are in the ROM, I did a search in Hex, and to my surprise, it's there. I'm assuming it pulls the text from the wrong area, hence why it says Mario. Can anybody fix this? (in other words, Loopy?)

Thanks!

Long: These messages may need moving to some currently-unused RAM (as in something unused in the ending) in order to compensate for patching ($6000-$7FFF) then after the ending, copy the nessicary stuff back to RAM to restore the original data

Short: To point you to the right direction, for more help with this, Ask ShaneM for assistance,

Oops. It used to work, but I broke it while fixing something else :oops:

It should be fixed now, but I don't have the patience to play through the game to test it.

It works! Thank you so much! (Do I get a credit on your website for finding it :D?). Also, do you have an e-mail I can contact you at?

Thanks!

Looks like everyone will need to patch their reproductions now.

Hello everyone,

I've stumbled upon this thread while searching for the best version of smb2j and unfortunately, the link given by loopy does not work anymore... Not sure if it's temporary but in the meantime, I would be very happy if anyone with the zip file could share it again.

Thank you in advance :)
