Super Mario Bros. Forum  /  SMB2J on NES classic

how do I get smb2j or the pellson rom to work on my nes classic?? Help??

(edited: )

i think this should help

idk if this is legal 😕


It's definitely illegal to go ahead and download the ROMs without at least owning a legitimate copy somehow, wether it was bought from the Wii Shop Channel before its closure, bought from the Wii U eShop, or owning a copy of SMB2J for the FDS.

haxchi by itself, is completely legal as it requires you to own an NES Classic for it to work, and it does not contain any of Nintendo's proprietary code inside the program for it to work.

My advice is, purchase a copy of the game legally and then download a copy for backup purposes.


You cannot play SMB2J on the NES Classic even if its hacked. The game just crashes.


The FDS ROM is completely functional with the NES Classic, as the BIOS for the FDS is included with the emulator, However what you are using @ThatsAnotherJ13ThatsAnotherJ13 are dumps from unlicensed cartridge conversions from the 90s/Early 2000s, such as the "p1" ROM.

They will most likely fail due to the emulation used, not supporting the mappers used by these unlicensed conversions, plus any run that uses these conversions will be rejected due to differences in the game

(e.g. Red Piranha Plants only existing in upside down pipes, and the game crashing immediately after the "Thank you Mario" text appears on screen.)
