Merry Xmas: Super Mario World Beta Remake released!

Merry Xmas: Super Mario World Beta Remake released!

Did you enjoy all those differences that can be noticed in the Super Mario World beta screenshots? What if Nintendo had stuck with some of their original material while creating the Super Mario World we know and love today? Well, this SMW hack will let you play the game how it may have been in its beta version!

Yoshi Master (AKA Randy from the U64 Staff) has finally released his beta remake of Super Mario World. This hack is based and inspired by all of the pre-release screenshots, unused materials, ancient interviews, and some minor assumptions revolving around SMW, and it’s creation.




You can check more screens from the real beta in the Super Mario World Beta page.

Most of the GFX were made by Randy, as well as the levels themselves. The bosses also each have something “beta” about them. Search the Super Mario World Beta Remake Hack  (Lunar IPS File) on Google

How to patch the game to activate the Super Mario World Beta Remake? It’s easy:

1) Get SNESTooL
2) Select ‘Use IPS’ (Press Enter)
3) Select the Super Mario World Beta IPS file
4) Select the Super Mario World (USA) ROM (you’ll have to find this one by yourself)
5) Play it in your favourite SNES emu

Have fun! This is the best christmas gift for every Super Mario World Beta lover and it’s free. Play it, share it with friends.

    couldnt get the patch to work tried snestool and lunar ips but they just make the rom unreadable, also in quadruples in size from 512kb to 2024kb, anyone else got this problem?

  2. Chuckie Failure

    Don’t know much about the beta, but it is great to see how everything was before the final game.

    How many worlds were in the beta?
    Were are the secerts?

    Use snestool just add a header to the rom then patch with ips.
    I hope this help you.

  4. pipe

    also be sure that your rom is a .smc file
    because i downloaded a .sfc rom and dont work with the patch

    i complete the 4 worlds good game :D any secrets in this beta game ?

    @ turntablist: Well, first off is it a,”Super Mario World (U).smc” ROM?
    If so, I do not know the problem. It seems to work for everybody else…

    There is one way to be absolutely SURE the Super Mario World ROM they have is a clean one.

    Put this in the same folder as your ROM and type in it’s exact file name.

    @ Pipe: There are no secret exits/worlds. At least not in this version! Maybe in a future release.

    There are a few unused levels in the ROM. They can be accessed via Lunar Magic.

    Got it working now, added a header with snestool then patched with lunar, thanks for the help lads!

    Surely there would have been some sort of final boss had Nintendo completed SMW this way. Though I do like how in this remake you choose which areas to go to first and with no final boss it simulates the incompleteness of beta really well. Overall congratulations on the SMW beta remake. It’s definitely really good :).

    It’s very intriguing to look at. I like the fact that Lugi actually has his own indiviual character sprite instead of just being Mario’s with a different color pallete.

    Awww man, i’m using Windows 7 and SnesTool dosen’t work on it, now I can’t play, I need a plain ROM file of this from somewhere?? anyone know?

  10. thisisnotmyrealname

    I’ve tried everything suggested in the comments and more and I still only get a blank screen when I start the patched file.

    The screen shots and movies look cool though, nice work.

  11. I'mStupid?

    I’ve been trying to work this for minutes, but the tool keeps saying:
    There is no correct IPS file

    What does that mean? I’ve tried adding the header, but nothing is preventing the message from popping up.

    BTW, I’m using Windows 7 32-bit.

      It seems that the patch program has some problems on some OS, you could try to ask to someone else to patch the game for you.. sadly we cannot release the patched rom in here
