    This probably haven't been asked yet, but it's something that's been bugging me for awhile. I've seen cool mods of NSMB2, SSB4, Mario 3D Land, MK7, and probably more. What I can't find is how these mods were made. Well, I've seen the 3D Land Level Creator, but that's about it.

    See, there's this game I wanted to tinker around with but I have no clue on how to do it. Is there a specific tool that most users use to break the game and make changes with it?

    The only mods that I know how to do are texture mods, in which you extract the ROM, use a program to extract its files, change the files you want, repack them and re-build the ROM.

    It depends upon what you want to do. Simple things like altering sprite graphics or texture swaps can be done by simply extracting the ROM image using a utility, then swapping the files you want and re-packing the ROM. Changing text usually involves either hex editing or coding your own tools. Anything else is usually venturing into the area of assembly programming, which is an incredibly difficult and frustrating method of programming, from what I've heard.

    That was pretty creative. Need to take note of this.
