NES Protip #5
After watching saibot101's GENIUS "NES Protip" series, I decided that I would try my own take on it. I'll do more as I think of them. Enjoy!

ImBlackYall - Yer full of crap - it requires timing the jumps - not holding down the button. Also - 99 lives was not the max - anyone that actually did that would know it goes into funky symbols.

njse7en - sorry, wrong. You don't need to "time the jumps." You get the first one correct, and it sets off a reaction where you don't have to do anything. The shell bounces off the character, then bounces off the stair, which comes back and bounces off the character again. Christ, I haven't played this game in 15 years and I remember that. Of course, the real idiot here is EliteAzn for saying "owned" to an inaccurate comment.

Ive NEVER been able to do this but my old baby sitter could. You start getting mad 1-ups and your life counter gets a little crwon next to it at 10, then it goes thru the alphabet and then starts showing weird shapes as your number of lives.

In the old NES version, if you got over 108 lives, you would get a Game Over when you either died or finished the stage. This glitch was fixed in all future releases, and in Super Mario All-Stars's version, you could get up to 128 (maximum). 5'd for teh funny

" little crwon next to it at 10, then it goes thru the alphabet and then starts showing weird shapes as your number of lives." And I'm sure everyone here is nerdy enough to know WHY it does that. It's because of the overflow in the bits of data corresponding to your life. The reason for the funny display is probably because the life display were a direct loop through the ASCII codes. After the numbers comes the letters and it goes all the way up to 255. XD Funny YTMND, but needs to be faster (fast song).

Actually, the "crown" shape was due to the fact that the letters and numbers were just tiles alongwith all the other graphics blocks. So, when the game ran out of tiles with alphanumerics, it went on to the ones with chunks of graphics instead. ...oh yeah, and this YTMND wins.

I'd rather watch something funny on ytmnd than see one of the oldest gaming tips.

Great, now I'm picturing the entire Mario crew breakdancing or stomping Koopas to this tune. ... On second thought, maybe I should go find a Super Mario RPG rom...
