Ah. I see what you mean, now. Yes, that is indeed #6; good find!Myask wrote:Yeah, probably just fewer coins.
But I'm talking about the brick to the left of the stairs, not the one to the right. It doesn't look like the stairs moved, comparing scenery and the upper platform. Just those two bricks.
The infinite 1-UP trick is actually not present in the beta build there, since that brick is needed to accomplish it in that part. I truly wonder why it was added to the final to begin with? Big Mario/Luigi can easily break it and little Mario/Luigi can just jump it. I truly believe it was added for that purpose of getting more lives.
Proof of this can be seen as Nintendo themselves mention it on page 84 of the official SMB2J guide. (They make mention of how to accomplish this as well as in other locations; the others being the first part of 1-1 at the beginning of the level with the Red Koopa, 2-1 at the beginning by stomping a Koopa repeatedly on the stairs, the beginning of 2-3 using the Koopa before the fish bridge, 6-1 using the Buzzy Beetle at the beginning of the level and 7-1, 7-2, 8-2 and A-1. Though these last four are just mentioned in the guide but don't state how to perform them.) --ShaneM, the Master of ASM
