I've just released a new version of the engine. The first in almost 2 years . You can find it on yoyogames
More info at these places: SMB3 Engine - Frameskip
Make Your Own Super Mario Bros 3 Game with Gamemaker
Update: December 7th 2009
Warning, this post is a real mess, and the engine is too. If you care about an unfinished, not completly playable, but nearly 100% accurate, then keep reading. If not, well there are some "better" engine over there so feel free look at the next engine on your search result.
Well anyway, I still don't care about this place, but for the few people that are still interested about this engine, it's still the biggest source of information about it. The rest of the topic haven't been touched since forever, so most of these stuffs are probably outdated. If you think you are able to clean this messy engine, then be my guest, but you'll probably prefer to use this engine as a learning tool.
Oh, and any update, if there is any, will be seen here first. http://www.youtube.com/user/djrelllik Because I usually forget this forum.
(http://64digits.com/...ne_7_beta_3.zip)a real last version I released for a few people that cared.
There I'm not editing the whole topic, the engine is discontinued, and here's the last version
you can find a complete post about it there if you really need one
November 20th: Things has been improved but I've especially added gamepad support. The problem is that it's the first time I do this and my gamepad isn't really good, so I'd need some people to test it to see if it works correctly for everyone. Post:266
October 31st: Removed every single solid block, currently running 35-40% faster than it did before. Post:243
October 21st: Started working on the speed issues. Post: 236
May 15th 2007:Ok the beta of the new version is out. There is still a good ammount of stuffs to fix but I don't really have to time for now so I thought it would might be a good idea to release a beta.
Well it's pretty hard to explain what it got in a topic but what I can tell you is that I made my best to make most of the things as close as possible to the original game. I've also put the music that I rip but that I didn't use. Feel free to use them if you need them, if you can understand how it work. I used the JBFMOD dll which you can find here on gm, just run a search if you want to know how to use it. But you just have to put the right music object to run a song that is already there. By the way the game is currently running very slow for some people. I'm really sorry for this and I'm currently working to fix this.

There is a few things to take in note.
-If I'm making this engine, it's to let people that aren't really good enough with gamemaker to make a mariobros 3 clone. It's like hacking a mariobros 3 rom except that you have control over everything here. And as someone who like playing hacked roms, I would love to see some games created with it
-This engine isn't really ready to make a full game yet. It still have some glitchs and you won't be able to switch to another version if you start making something with it.
-It doesn't have any help files saying how the engine work so I hope you'll be able to understand how everything works. It used to have one but it is outdated. I'll maybe make a short one when I'll release a real version.
-Please understand that you need a good knowledge of gamemaker to be able to use it. Don't think you'll be able to use it if you still haven't made a decent game yet.
-Other than that, you can see the control in the game info(F1) don't forget that
By the way don't claim this work your own. Let people knows if you use somethings from it or if you made a game with it, ok? Well I hope you will. Not that I mind that much, considering the fact that I barely play people's game anymore but it would be nice. I've put a lot of work in this engine. Also please change my levels if you are going to make a game with it
Duffman540 have been nice enough to spread the idea of advertising my engine in people's signature. If you think it would worth it and would want to support me, here is the codes.
