    Yesterday I managed to install both the SMB1 and SMB3 on my Pal Wii with the WAD-installer.
    Both games have an issue: Super Mario Bros runs way too fast and SMB3 has the flickering at the side of the screen. I always thought the screen flickering was an emulator issue.

    I was wondering if I would download the original VC games, would I have the same problems? I mean I don't mind a bit of flickering but Super Mario Bros running twice as fast is quite annoying. In this case it would seem a rip-off to me.

    Right now I'm even thinking of uninstalling SMB because it's not feeling like the original when it runs this fast.

    I may be wrong, but most likely.

    How come I can't find anything when googling it? I would expect that if the official VC games had these issues more people would complain.

    In Super Mario Bros. the game doesn't run too fast, only the music does.

    The flicker in Super Mario Bros. 3 is normal as far as I know. I think it had something to do with Overscan and the NES's hardware restrictions:
    CODEOverscan is extra image area around the four edges
    of a video image that is not normally seen by the viewer.
    It exists because television sets in the 1930s through 1970s
    were highly variable in how the video image was framed
    within the cathode ray tube (CRT). -Wikipedia
    So it would not normaly show, except on newer TVs and emulators.

    Aha! I thought there was something strange, but that's it! I know the music so well and I immediately noticed it was going to fast, but the game itself didn't feel that much faster. So probably worth playing after all. Thanks.

    That flicker in SMB3 is to recreate the original feel. To be honest, I'm used to the NES version so I never really noticed it! [​IMG]

    I've never noticed any abnormalities in SMB1, except for the general ones you'll get in the NES version.

    Don't fucking kid yourself. They didn't recreate shit for any nostalgic feel. If they did they would have an option to turn it on and off as MY tv didn't have the garbled shit on the sides. It is just another prime example of Nintendo saying, "recode and optimize our code? fuck you and just give us your money you dumb fanboy." And of course with my shit grin smile I just nod and say okay. Out of the 30+ VC games I bought SMB3 is the only one I regret so far except for a few TG16 gambles.
