      (so no restart required when willing to play another game).

      • except for the unlock code (don't use on Citra,
        works though seems to ruin save game).
  • All cheat codes should be optimized for all regions & revisions.
    • Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
  • In order for enabled cheat codes to take effect, depending on the code enabled,
    some codes require you to:
    • Use a button combination.
      • These codes are marked with a *
        and list the button combination to be used between (parentheses).
    • Trigger a screen transition.
      Accomplishable by, for example:
      • Switching between Worlds on World Map
        (if more then one World opened).
      • Entering and exiting a level.
        • For exiting a level, any of the following options are valid:
          • Pause and return to map (level select).

    • Always Tail Attack (Any Powerup)
    • Always Flutter (Any Powerup)
    • Increased Speed (Land)

About
( TLDR: Happy cheating! )

Hi all!

Due to the fact I couldn't find any complete or open sourced list of cheat codes for Nintendo's Super Mario 3D Land, I decided to put together (or for some codes: optimize & convert) a good selection of cheat codes myself. I even worked on some new and unique codes that I haven't seen in other cheat code releases for this game, like a full 100% (5 Shiny Stars) unlock code, together with options to open any closed Mystery Boxes & Toad Houses.

The entire process took quite some time (over a month for the initial release) and a lot of research, trial & error, digging and testing, while in meantime documenting the most important steps & findings along the way. Overall, in my humble opinion, I think the result is worthwhile.

Feel free to give these cheats a tryout. Also, feel free to improve where and if needed.

[GAME=/game/super-mario-3d-land.1079]Super Mario 3D Land[/GAME]​

To whom may concern, I uploaded my developer notes to my repository for those interested in reading about how these codes came to be (see link above). Please note I can not guarantee all information is 100% correct, although it can be a bit of help (as in: an additional resource) for those learning how to cheat.

Not sure if my n3DSXL being retarded, but so far in level cheats not are working, latest luma, eur region, and rev1 game
Well, talking about getting off to a good start :D...
Can't tell for sure based on your post what could be the issue.
Could you provide some more info (f.e. game cartridge or cia, in case of a cia version: what version number does FBI list under Titles, ...)?

Hmmm, you are using a different cheat file. Please make sure you overwrite your current cheat file with the one(s) found in the latest release (make a backup of your current file if needed). When you have followed the installation steps for this release, feel free to let me know if the codes work for you or not.

CIA downloaded from Nintendo CDN before they patched it out.

16 (0.1.0)
Strange. I seem to have the same release installed (although I own the actual game cartridge).
All cheats do work on my end.
Does your your installation match the reference below?
SUPER MARIO 3D LAND
  • Title ID: 0004000000053F00
  • Media Type: SD
  • Version: 16 (0.1.0)
  • Product Code: CTR-P-AREP
  • Region: Europe, Australia
  • Size: 290,94 MiB
I do own a N2DSXL (running CFW Luma 10.0.1) and not a N3DSXL, although I don't think that could be the reason why the cheats aren't working for you. For the time being, I'll be needing some more feedback from others. If you do have any additional information, feel free to keep me posted.

Mine is the exact same thing, I think my console is just on drugs, just to be more specific all cheats that like modify save, start level as/with, etc work but in-level cheats like Always Star Power, Infinite Time, Moonjump, Press * button * for * powerup *, etc DO NOT

Okay was my bad. I had placed the txt into the wrong location. The cheats show now in Rosalina menu and all of them work so far thanks for your good work man! It would be cool to play around with some other options like Run Faster, go through walls, swim faster. Would you be able to add these types of codes next time? :D

EDIT: my game is

Don't worry about your console.
The in-level cheats indeed use a different pointer setup, so it makes sense.
I'll have to dig into this, although at the moment I have no idea why it works on my end and not on your end. I did notice occasional address offset differences myself when in level during the development process of these cheats (when curious, findings documented in Developer Notes > Level Pointer, subject to change). It could be I overlooked/missed something.
Are you by any chance able to provide me with a compressed RAM Dump when in level W1-1, so I could look into what may be the issue?

Don't worry about your game region. All codes I set up for this game should be the same for all regions with only the file name being different.
Regarding other codes:
  • Run/Swim faster: Not sure if I'll be able to find the address(es)/value(s) needed though, although an interesting idea. Perhaps I'll look into this.
  • Go Through Walls: Such type of code hasn't ever been my favorite. In my opinion, a cheat like this breaks the game too much and probably wouldn't be a user-friendly cheat, since it would probably have the character also fall through floors, having to combine with another cheat, etcetera. I'll probably not be looking into such type of code.

There you go (*link removed*)
Thanks & got it, you may remove it if you want.
I'll be off now. When I have the time, I'll check it out.

@am714: I found out what makes the in-level cheat codes not work for you and most certainly some other non USA region users. I'm investigating some more and I hope to come up with a fix soon. Thanks in advance for notifying me about the issue.

Update: Should be fixed. Could you please verify?
