And now I see how the pirates got away with it. Some of these Mario hacks appear at least plausible as Doki Doki Panic to Super Mario Bros. 2: Mario Madness. In fact, even the Flintstones game could be thought of as a loose adaptation of the Super Mario World animated series if you think about it.

I watched all 3 parts when the first one was posted here, even though I don't understand russian. But I'm going to re-watch parts 2 and 3 with subtitles of course.

I could imagine how pissed I would have been if I had bought Super Wonderful Mario (aka Super Mario 5, aka Super Bros 5) as a kid, only to come home and discover that it was Super Mario Bros 2 with a hacked title screen.

I hope you russians had the ability to try the games in the store before you bought them.

I don't really remember how it was in early years, don't think I ever managed to get into a branded Dendy shop - but generally (in other shops) it wasn't possible to ask to just show a game, they only check it if works (not everywhere) when you bought it. Later, in second half of 1990s, in many places it was possible to see a game before buy.

By the way, I personally knew Super Mario Bros. 2 as Super Mario USA until I got access to the internet. So it was a common thing that the same game was known under 2-3 titles.

Btw, is there a patch or GG code available that will remove the powerups from a normal copy of Ninja Gaiden / Shadow Warriors? (like in that Dendy version that kinaman showed). Would be interesting to see just how hard the game becomes without them.

Oh, I forgot to complain about the subtext being white only; there are many places where it's almost impossible to read what is said.


Edit: Thanks, Shiru!

Nevermind, I hacked it myself (for those who want to know, you just need to change the two bytes at file offset 1DA9B-1DA9C from A5 01 to A9 1C).

Does it also makes 1up bonus crash the game?

Also, regardiing the bug in Shatterhand/Solbrain that has been shown in The Curse of the Gray Elephant, CaH4e3 figured out what caused it a year ago. He posted about it in his blog, but it is in Russia. Here is an automatic translation (it's bad but it has the broken code). At the time, I had luck to get not broken game once. Every other copy of the game I saw had the problem, but they always were on multi-game carts, and working one was a single game, so a lot people were searching working copy of a game for many years, without any luck.

No. My change marks all powerups as immediately taken, so you'll never see any laterns at all. That's not exactly the same as in the Dendy version, but it's the effect I wanted (i.e. no powerups).

Additionally, two small extra videos from The Curse of the Gray Elephant are translated too, one of them is a blooper, and other is an extra scene:
