1. FIRST WORDS
Welcome to my READ ME :)
First of all, be sure to have the original game from NINTENDO, so called "New Su
per Mario Bros. DS"!
Otherwise, delete this patch immediately!! Thanks!
My english is not the best, but I try to give my best...

This patch will replace all of the old levels with these from "Super Mario Bros.
3" (Nintendo Entertainment System, 1988) and some other special courses from se
veral 2D-Mario games and even other games :)
The game has a lot of puzzles, obstacle courses, sick mazes and even more harder
levels! You won't be dissapointed...surely not!

But beating the game is not the main difficulty!


The true mission is to get all 240 "Star Coins" and beat the game!
They were hidden truly well, and it needs a bit more just some Jump N' Run actio
ns to get these!

I have to say that the suits are not included, I'm so sorry but I'm not a coder
after all...
I've used an editor to make this hack, the background, the worldmap and even the
music are still the same, too... :(
But I tried to fit the music to the levels, and the already existing original NS
MB-musics!

I have to say something important!


I would not use cheats!^^
Trust me or you'll lose your savefile in the last world!! (more infos in the FAQ
-section)

2. HOW TO PATCH
This is the most important part of the READ ME I think!^^
Patching the rom!
I'll say it again, don't perform any of the steps, when you don't have the origi
nal game by Nintendo (ORIGINAL means = having the cartridge in the hand)
Everything you need for patching is in the pack! (besides the main rom)
Be sure you have installed the Microsoft NET Framework-pack!
The tool won't work without these files!

Patching:
01. Get your ROM (don't ask where to get one, it's illegal to download them, eve
n when you have the original cartridge!)
02. The ROM must be the [U]-Version of the game, the others won't work! (but the
MULTI is included i nthe patch --> ENGLISH, GERMAN, FRENCH, SPANISH, ITALIAN)
03. Download the file from me (Yeah, you're reading the READ ME right now...) an
d extract it, recommended Tool: WINRAR!
04. You'll have some separate files now! Ignore the "Checklist" ad "Screenshots"
-folder for the first!
[U] New Super Mario Bros. 3 [1.0x] (FLASHCARD Edition).xdelta
[U] New Super Mario Bros. 3 [1.0x] (NO$GBA Edition).xdelta
READ ME (important).txt
xdelta.exe
xdeltaUI.exe

05. Open "xdeltaUI.exe"


06. Remember, we want to patch our rom, so we have to click on the tab "Apply Pa
tch" (It should be marked in the default setting)
07. You'll see 3 empty boxes with 3 buttons to the right from each of them... (1
. box - Patch, 2. box - Source File, 3. box - Output File)
08. Click on the first button "Open" right of the "Patch"-box!! A new window wil
l open!
09. Search for my xdelta-patch now and double click on "[U] New Super Mario Bros
. 3 [1.0x] (FLASHCARD Edition).xdelta" (the 1. box will be filled with the pathn
ame!)
10. Now to the second button, click "Open" right of the "Source File"-box and se
arch for the "clean, not trimmed" (downlaoded) ROM! Remember: Only the [U]-versi
on will work!
11. And at last, the third button! Click on "..." right of the "Target File"-box
and choose a place on your harddisk to save the patched rom!!
12. After saving the new file, you'll realize it has no extension, right mouse c
lick on the file and press "rename"!!
13. You have to add ".nds" (dot_nds) behind the name! [Example: after saving "NS
MB", after renaming "NSMB.nds"]
14. Your game now is successfully patched!
15. Get it on your flashcard or use an emulator to play the game! Have Fun!!

PS: When you want to play your game on no$gba, be sure to choose the "[U] New Su
per Mario Bros. 3 [1.0x] (NO$GBA Edition).xdelta" file (point 09)

3. KNOWN PROBLEMS
- no suits from Super Mario Bros. 3...
- no new music, can be changed someday...
- some levels have missing sounds like the door-closing sounds in 5-CANNON! (whe
n I activate that, the cannon doesn't make a sound...so I skipped the door-sound
, this happens in some other levels too, but that's something minor)
- some graphics are black, like the fog, cloud, water etc. effects (ONLY on no$g
ba, an emulator!! But I've added another patch just for the no$gba, which deacti
vates the effects and let it look clearly!)
- larger levels cannot be played on the M3 flashcard :( --> [3-A] and [5-B]
- the last part of 5-C is lagging! (electric-spwan-enemies)
- all 8 Castles have a strange background, it's inside a "hangar", I can't chang
e them...When I change them the. boss is gonna be muted!! So, I choose the odd b
ackground!
THAT'S ALL (I hope^^)

4. Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Where can I get a rom?
A: Move the complete Pack in the trash, press on delete all files, and the rom w
ill show up...

Q: I'm getting an error by patching the game! (i.e. Xdelta3: target window check
sum mismatch: XD3:_INVALID_INPUT)
A: Be sure to use the [U]-Version of the game! And it must be clean, not trimmed
or dumped or whatever!
That means you have used a wrong ROM!!
Q: I've patched my rom, but I can't open the file!
A: Did you write the ".nds" extension behind the filename?

Q: My game starts but I cannot see the main screen, an error shows up like "WRON
G OR CORRUPT SAVEFILE - DELETING THE SAVEFILE"
A: You have to start a new savefile, it's a way to protect the game from cheatin
g :) Using 100%-savefiles from others or your old saves fomr the original game,
will lead you to this error (or the error in the next Q/A)
It may be skipped when you have luck :) [but the next Q/A for sure not]

Q: I came so far and my game crashed!! The savegame was corrupt after that! What
happened?? I had found so many Star Coins and they're lost now... *cry*
A: As I said before, cheating will crash your game! Even when you deactivate the
"USED" cheat, the game remarks the savestate as "CHEATED!!" and you'll lose you
r savefile sometime!
Sorry about that but when you want to cheat, go and play Barbie's Sweet Candy
House...
There is no reason to cheat in this game... Trust me and try to get to the e
nd without cheats :)
You can say then that YOU ALONE HAS BEATEN IT!! Sound cool, ha?^^

Q: Before I start to play, is the game even beatable on a flashcard?


A: Yes, it was tested on several flashcards for compatibility, and it works! (be
sides on the M3!)
When you have a R4, be sure to use the updated firmware or Wood 1.10+
I myself tested the game on an R4, and it works PERFECTLY!! EVERTHING!! 100%
beatable!!

Q: I can't see any RED FLYING BOXES/HAMMER BRO'S in my level! When I was on the
worldmap, it was on the same spot!
A: Yeah, so restart your game completely and disable your cheats! ("unlock all l
evels/worlds"-cheat will cause this error!)

Q: Where can I find the Tanooki suit or even the feather item...
A: Sorry, but this game doesn't have these items, maybe in future, try to beat i
t without them first! Sorry...

Q: Did you place the Star Coins in the game, can't find any of them!
A: Yeah, I've put them in the levels, but they're much harder to find than in th
e original game!

Q: I can see a Star Coin, but I can't reach to it...


A: Hmm... Sometimes it's useful to kill every foe in the room... but not always
:)

Q: I can't find any Star Coins in the "Cannon"-levels!!


A: You can't find any Star Coins in the Cannon-levels (Remember: They were befor
e my edit a "just-cannon"-level)
Q: There is no sound in the Boss' room?
A: I know, that happens sometime, this happens when I change the level from the
Boss-Level, that's something which can't b fixed, sorry (but this happens only w
hen you die once)

Q: Some levels are freezing... 3-A for example!


A: Yeah, that's a known bug which cannot be solved... This happens only on some
flashcards, (for now, only on M3's!)
All other flashcards work so far...

Q: What the point in 3-C?


A: My grammar is horrible, so I'll try to explain it again! There are 7 numbers
in a row (1 line) and the 8th one is missing, you have to complete the line, It'
s pure logical thinking!
[Example; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ? (would be 8, +1+1+1+1+1+...)] ; [Example 2:
5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28, ? (would be 33, +2+5+2+5+2+5+...)] ; [Example 3: 1
, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 27, ? (would be 35, +1+2+3+4+5+...)]
All 4 mathematic "symbols" can be used!! (+, -, *, /)

Q: I'm lost in 5-B :(


A: This is an extreme huge maze, entering without a small map is...
However, you don't have a map and noticing the routes on paper is useless...
You would need a complete stack of paper :)
The course also has a secret exit...

Q: Is the course 6-A even beatable??


A: Yeah, it took myself more than 100 tries to beat the first part of the level,
the second is not beatable. (just joking)
It's pretty hard, but beatable! Everything you can see in there was beaten by
me!!! (without cheats!!)

Q: Does 7-6 a secret exit? I'm beating the level on the normal exit but I'll be
always leaded to 7-4 always!
A: Sorry, but this is something which have you solve on your own...

Q: How long is the second part of 7-Castle?


A: It's even hard with the both power-ups, hard as shit... try to memorize the c
ourse, it's not that long...
The problem is: There is a third castle-part too :)

Q: I'm on the final castle, but what are all of these numbers above the doors...
A: I had started a voting and asked if I should increase the difficulty, they vo
ted yes (>50%), so I was forced to make the game somewhat harder...
First I wanted make a sick, large castle, but the game doesn't allow me to pu
t more blocks to the game (ROM was max. reached out)
The course has no enemies now, but it has a lot of doors, you have to find th
e correct numbers and enter them in the correct order!

Q: I have entered a wrong door...Now I have to wait for a time out, what is this
shit...
A: I know, you'll hate me for this, but I made this as a protection for random t
ryouts!!
It would be too easy to find out the correct way... but that's not the reason
of my thinking...

Q: Where can I find these codes?


A: In each of the A-B-C levels are numbers at the stairway (final jump to the fl
agpole)
You have to notice the numbers somewhere, there are twelve A-B-C-levels in to
tal!
And they're hard as shit... :D (not all but almost all)

Q: Some levels have a very short time-limit, why didn't you expand it more...
A: The maximum timer I can set is "only" 999, some levels are unbeatable in the
first try, sorry!
For example 3-C, you have to notice the numbers on a paper, and run through t
he level in the next try (you can also use your memory-skill)

Q: Some of the graphics are looking strange, for example the fog/cloud effects i
n the ghosthouses!
A: I'm sure you're playing the game on the no$gba emulator...
Please patch your ROM with the "(no$gba version)"-patch!

Q: Why did you put so much 1-UP mushrooms in the game?? Isn't it too easy now...
.
A: No it isn't, I made that, because a lot of you will be frustrated very fast^^
The game is balanced, it's not easy or hard!!

Q: Dammit, I found Alucard on a level and Bowser was lying finished-off on the g
round, how did Alucard wound him, I couldn't see that! :(
A: He used his "Dark Hellfire" to paralyze him and performed the "Dark Metamorph
osis" to steal his last remmaining life...

Q: Can I make profit with this hack!


A: NO, not even I'm doing this! It's illegal and you can go to jail!!

Q: Can I post this game on other forums, boards etc.?


A: Yeah you can, but please send me the link to the post!
And do not forget to give some credits^^
