New Super Mario Bros. was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. It features your typical side-scrolling plumber, but in this case he comes with enhanced abilities, like wall jumping and doing flips.

This run beats the previous run by 44.23 seconds due to a much better usage of Shell Mario.

New Super Mario Bros. was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. It features your typical side-scrolling plumber, but in this case he comes with enhanced abilities, like wall jumping and doing flips.

Most of the game can normally be skipped with warp cannons. Here, the author avoids those cannons, allowing you to see much more plumbing action.

Soig improves the previous movie by 5.35 seconds, thanks to better optimisation.

Here, Mario beats Luigi's old record by 3:18.46, due largely to the use of a new version of the emulator which doesn't lag on the map screens as well as various in-stage improvements.

5019 - New Super Mario Bros. F is a nsmb's hack made by myself. Remake of Mario Forever and other softendo's Mario games and some Mario flash games.

Someday I TAS it. I don't know if I'll finish it. If I finish it, I'll publish it as a WIP. I TAS it just for fun. So I don't want to publish it as a record. I know no one will accept it, though. :P

The purpose of this page is to document all of the known tricks of NDS New Super Mario Bros so far.

Because of the nature of this site, we concentrate here on tricks that are extremely difficult to execute in real play, but are useful in the making of tool-assisted speedruns. For most of the tricks, a frame advance feature in an emulator is a definite must-have.

TODO: Make clips of these segments and cut the useless screen out.

New Super Mario Bros. was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. It features your typical side-scrolling plumber, but in this case he comes with enhanced abilities, like wall jumping and doing flips.

This run beats the previous run by 33.46 due to a new method of going through World 8-Tower 2 as well as various in-stage improvements.

RAM values relevant to tricks/optimization

  • 021B6A5C - 20.12 Fixed Point (4-byte)
  • 0208B70C - X Level Position 20.12 Fixed Point (4-byte)
  • 021B6A61 - Y position on screen 1 byte
  • 021B6A60 - Y position on screen 2 bytes
  • 020CC0EE - Rail position (where mario/luigi are on the progress bar)
  • 02088A68 - RNG 1
  • 02088A6A - RNG 2

Note: the RNG is actually a single 4-byte address but it is easier to monitor it as two separate addresses.


Corner Boosting



Turning right on the flagpole



Speed Mechanics

  • Running Speed/Triple Jumping speed = 3.0 Pixels per frame
  • Shell Spinning speed = 2.75 Px/frame
TODO: finish this and turn into a table, and explain, and add RAM addresses

RNG

  • The starting RNG depends on the date and time you start the movie.
  • The RNG changes whenever certain sound effects are played, whether by Mario or the background music itself (though this depends on the level). Luck can always be manipulated by either double jumping, throwing something, wall jumping, and very frequently - (though not always) by breaking a block.

The RNG is currently known to affect:

  • The Red ? Block and Hammer Bros. movements on the world map
  • The movement of the Scuttlebugs
  • The volcano rocks in World 8-8
  • When the final cutscene in World 8-Castle 2 (Bowser Jr. throwing Dry Bowser into the pot) activates.

TODO, explain these: Ground pounding as mini-mario Super corner boosting Maintaining speed as a turtle shell Mini-mario corner boosting
