- A middle-aged man hacks Super Mario Bros. You won't believe what happens next.I talked with Derek a million years ago about programming the NES and he said that that could be a fun talk. I still would like to try that someday, but in the interim I propose something a little more fun--hacking SMB1 for the NES! I will cover three different types of hacks: * Game Genie tomfoolery (dynamic ROM editing). * Text replacement and translation shenanigans (altering ROM). * World Randomizer (altering ROM). However, it's not all fun and games; expect to learn about the following topics: * NES memory model. * NES pattern tables. * Some 6502 assembly programming.
