I think I had one before, but it was several months ago and not worth bumping. Ergo, this.

This, if nothing else, proves my love for the long-underused Buzzy Beetle clan:

Another one, 3rd in a pixel art competition on MFGG:

A general Mario sketch (on notebook paper, blech)

A scene depicting my thoughts on the Japanese SMB2:


And finally, a piece commemorating the discovery of the 35th Hoo Bean prior to Piranha Bean in M&L: SS:
(though the bean location depicted has been known for some time)


Likely many more Superstar Saga-related pictures coming up, I've recently been pondering some of the unexplainable mysteries of that game...

I'd also like some opinions as to whether my pixel-art, pencil, or Photoshop skills are the best; personally, I prefer the pencil as a medium.

For the longest time, people (including myself) have wanted to get the Piranha Suit, rather than the Piranha Swing badge, from the Piranha Bean boss. However, as only Luigi fights it, you cannot use the Swing Bros. attack, and until July 2008, no one had found enough Hoo Beans to make the final drink necessary for the Game Boy Horror SP.

Now, nearly all of the hidden Hoo Beans in the game are indicated on the following map sections. Check out Peardian's original M&L: SS maps on for the complete maps of these areas.

Two beans are unaccounted for, as supposedly, " elevated platform that’s right up against the western wall in a small room [in Joke's End] features an Invisible Block", and "A tiny, elevated platform up against the northern wall [of some unclarified part of Bowser's Castle] is surrounded by lava. An Invisible Block floats above this tiny platform." Both are very ambiguous statements, and both Joke's End and Bowser's Castle are playable after the surfing minigame is accessible.

There is also rumor of a hidden block(s) in Chateau de Chucklehuck, but this could be a confusion with the hidden area containing a Super Nut, Super Syrup, and coins. Also, the Joke's End bean could possibly be located in the room indicatedwith the Scaratroopea and Snifit (marked with a "?").

I am unable to figure out the authenticity (and/or clear identity) of the locations of  these Hoo Beans, but at any rate, the 15 pre-Piranha Bean locations should be more than enough to get the Game Boy Horror SP before the boss.

Mario Chat / Mario video requests - Temporarily closed...
« on: January 06, 2009, 10:18:40 AM »
I'll attempt to work on any request from the following games:

Super Mario Bros. (8 or 16-bit)
Super Mario Bros. 2(J) (8 or 16-bit)
Super Mario Bros. 2 (8 or 16-bit)
Super Mario Bros. 3 (8 or 16-bit)
Super Mario World
Super Mario 64
Paper Mario
Mario & Luigi: SS
EDIT: Super Mario Bros. Deluxe

Paper Mario & M&L:SS may depend on convenience, and all depend slightly on skill.

I should be able to handle about anything from SMB, SMB2(j), SMB3, or SMW, though.

I record to VHS to DVD to my computer, or simply to DVD to my computer; give me about 5-7 days to put up the video (possibly longer for M&L and Paper Mario).

Videos so far:

Super Mario World - Tubular w/o Cape or P-Balloon, and other minimal powerup runs:
Super Mario World - Donut Secret 2 Extra Starman:
Super Mario World - Anti-Gravity Yoshi Glitch:
Paper Mario - Anti Guys Unit 5 HP, no Life Shrooms -

Mario Chat / Flopside Pit of 100 Trials help (how to get there)
« on: October 24, 2008, 06:55:10 PM »
Is there a way to get to the Flopside Pit after chapter 5-4 but before you get Luigi? (because then you have to wait until around 7-3 until you have Peach and Bowser)
I got to the Flipside one by a path that involved using Tippi on some invisible blocks, and found some similar (albeit moving) invisible blocks on the same floor in Flopside. Is there a way to get to the pit from there, and am I just not noticing it? I figure Kimimaru or someone should know this...

General Chat / Super Mario Bros. Z - Episode 7 out!

There's some interesting stuff here, mostly Mario-related.

Mario Chat / M+L: Superstar Saga Great Cheat Codes!
« on: September 21, 2008, 02:37:09 PM »

Not sure whether they're Gameshark codes or AR codes that strangely work on my Gameshark, because the graphics are very scrambled sometimes.
They work great, though!

Game Help / Mario + Luigi: Superstar Saga - 2 questions
« on: September 20, 2008, 02:02:54 PM »
1. What is the fastest way to get max Level/Stats?

I have 600,000-ish EXP and between 100 and 200 of each stat, but the going is slow in increasing.

Kimimaru, could you please help with this, since you mentioned having done it before?

2. Can you collect 35 Hoo Beans before the Piranha Bean battle? (which is before the Surfing Game is accessible)

I have looked all over the internet as well as doing some experimenting on my own and found -- THIRTY-FOUR. GRRRRR, I shouldn't wonder if Nintendo put only 34 in there on purpose, or if they put only 35 and I can't find one.

This is the list as I remember it (all are visible unless stated as hidden):

Beanbean Outskirts---
1. Hidden one screen down and to right of east Beanbean Castle Town exit on small platform
2. Atop tree platforms one screen down and left of same exit
3. Same screen, but towards Harhall's Studio

Beanbean Castle Town---
4-6. Hidden in lower right house (?) of west screen
7-8. Inside large house in east screen
9-13. Hidden inside castle past miniature maze near Pipe House

Woohoo Hooniversity---
14. Hidden in room south of Sun Door
15. In room with Sun Door
16. In one of two bonus rooms, clearly visible
17. In the other bonus room, just outside of Barrel Area, again clearly visible
18-21. Hidden in Mini Mario bonus room
22-23. In room preceding Cackletta battle

Oho Oasis---
24. Hidden in main entrance room of Fire Temple

Oho Ocean Seabed (including parts under Gwarhar Lagoon)---
25. In first room with Cheep-Cheep and Starkiss enemies
26. In first bonus room under Gwarhar Lagoon
27. Hidden(?) near second entrance under Gwarhar Lagoon
28-30. All hidden under Gwarhar Lagoon in seemingly empty room

Little Fungitown---
31. Hidden on tall mushroom above Fashion House

Gwarhar Lagoon---
32. (I don't remember seeing this one, but there is a hit block there in my file not marked on online maps) Hidden in screen east of Stone Bridge

Winkle Area---
33. On small, seemingly empty ledge (EDIT: Hidden, otherwise it wouldn't be "seemingly empty")

Okay, must have forgotten where one is, maybe i'd find it back if I played through it.

Sorry for length, I just wanted to post ones I was aware of.

Can anyone help me with either?

Does anyone have text sprites from Super Mario 64 (like the text "PRESS START, FILE SELECT, etc...)? If so could you send them to me at smasfan@hotmail. com?

Game Help / Mario + Luigi Superstar Saga Hoo Beans
« on: May 13, 2008, 07:24:15 PM »
I know of 34 Hoo Beans' locations before the Beanstar is fixed.
Ironically, you need 35 to make the two hoo Bean-related drinks to ultimately get the GameBoy horror SP.

I REALLY want to get another one so I can get the Piranha Suit item.

Would everyone post as many beans as they know of?

This is the first relatively 3D thing I have attempted, considering I don't own Photoshop I think it is pretty good.

This is apparently what comes inside of those blue shells in Mario Kart... not something you want to meet.

 Not exactly sure where this should go, but there is a great website out there for making and loading custom Mario levels.

For level codes go to

look under best, good + user made levels. (I'm on their forums too!)

Mario Chat / smbdx high scores

Mario Chat / Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga Items....
« on: March 31, 2008, 04:56:39 PM »
What is with all those extra pants and badges in M+L: Superstar Saga? Are they leftover codes never used in the game or are they 1/1,000,000,000 chance of getting dropped by an enemy? (e.g. Bros. Respect, Safe Guard, Bros. Life....)
