    What the title says, I have downloaded two cias that supossedly include ALL 38 e-reader levels straight from the Wii U VC eShop version. None of them worked correctly and I really wanna play these bonus levels. The first one (that I created) didn't worked because I believe didn't patched SRAM correctly with GBATA. The second one I downloaded from a thread on another forum and It didn't worked either; when I started playing all went fine and my save didn't got formatted, however, when I wanted to play ANY e-reader level, mario just got stuck on the upper left corner of the map and couldn't do a thing but restart the game. Anybody got a working CIA with all the 38 extra levels?

    You might want to edit your post before a mod do it for you, it's for your own good
    As for your question, sorry, i haven't played it so someone else might have an answer

    You can do it on the computer, with the right save file. Not sure about 3DS...

    You can try out the SMA4 hack I posted at RomHacking.
    You apply it over the original ROM and that should create a ROM exactly as the one found in the Wii U VC.
    You can simply use one of the GBA injection programs to put it in, or maybe that iso site already has one available for Wii U VC.

    You mentioned the full name of the ISO site, that isn't allowed here, as this forum doesn't support piracy.

    Actually, I patched the rom with your patch and it worked like a charm on vba, however, I did the process of converting it to .cia format and then installed it I could play the original game, but not the e-reader levels because I just couldn't move mario on the map, he's stuck on the corner of the screen.

    It's probably the conversion to 64kB flash... it works passably with Pokemon as they have double saves, but I guess something has to go there!

    There is a working .cia file out there. However, on your first play on your 3DS the game will appear to be messed up. This is normal. Simply let it look messed up, but then exit the game. Go back in and it will function properly. This only happens on your first time playing the game, every time after the game will function fine (does on mine anyway, and yes that is with the Wii U version with all 38 levels).
