    Super Mario Advance 4 finally released on the eShop, with every single e-Reader level in the ROM itself, and with it, a special modified ROM that does just that, embedded in the Virtual Console emulator.

    The original post was me asking if someone could investigate it, but a few people here did just that, and released a set of patches for a SMA4 ROM that alter it to add all 38 eReader levels, just like the eShop's release.

    I'm highly interested in this too.
    Please, if someone can, please make the ROM dump available.

    If its just the save then post it here, if its the ROM then an IPS patch will do to post here!
    Or in an iso site. :P

    Yes, please someone dump and post (in a legal form, preferably) the game data.
    All versions too.

    It ain't a warez request if we are only asking for patches and metadata.

    I think any dumps would have to be posted on that ISO site, and it wouldn't really be "legal" in any way it's done.

    The Wii U VC rom itself is officially hacked because the original release can only save up to 32 levels at once, the VC release was tweaked to remove this limit and adds all of the extra levels to the main level data itself.

    Also the official release of Mad Dash, now known as "No Time To Dawdle" has been dumped nearly 2 years ago thanks to a Youtuber named MJ_Stoxx as s/he obtained the official super rare level and dumped the .sav file for anyone to use with their JP Cartridge/Rom

    Did you know that there is a Wii U page equilvalent to THAT iso site for the 3DS? :P
    Although, that site does not have the SMA4 dump yet. :/

    It seems to be much desired since its release in a ROM format.

    Oh yes please! :D
    If you do, I might give the last SMA game a proper colour restoration patch too like the one I did for SMA3 by taking the VC ROM as the base. :P

    We are asking for someone with the game to dump it, not someone to do googling. But go ahead, you may be able to find a dump :P

    So it turns out it's likely a modified ROM, as the original game only allowed you to hold 32 levels on the cartridge at any given point, while this lets you play all 38 levels.

    It would be amazing if someone can get an IPS patch out there!
