for all you mario fans
hey, i ran through this website while surfing:

http://www.smbhq.com/users/mysteries/minusworld2.htm

it has been confirmed that a minus one world exists,
and i even played my old nes and got to it,

But does anyone here know if this second minus world exists or not ??

I'm sure there are some hardcore mario fans in those forums... :p

    Well there's two things that make me believe this is a fake.

    First off, look at the -1 screenshots. Notice the time is exactly the same from when he swam into the wall and when he's through it. Meaning it literally didn't take 1 second to do that action. Secondly, int he email it states there is a 1/2002 chance of being able to swim through the wall. This is a very good excuse as to why nobody else will be able to do it.

    Check again. There is a 10 second difference.

    Very good point, heh. Also, another thing i've noticed. Notice how the blocks on the left hand side don't tile properly while the blocks on the right do. This is, without a doubt, a Photoshop job, and a pretty slack one at that. smile.gif

    Actually, I just noticed that the 10 second difference is in the wrong direction unless time time was counting backwards.

    Wow if there even was a world -1 or -2 then that'd be completely lame and that screen shot of him going through the wall I've seen it before because he's not the only one who claims there is a -2 there seems to be about 20 versions floating around.

    WTH?

    Seriously?

    I thought everyone who owned a Nintendo had been there at least once...


    There's a trick in 1-2 you can do to go through the walls to the warp zone and you get into a water world labelled -1. It has no ending, it just loops over and over till you die. Presumably its a bug, nobody really knows for sure.

    If it were a bug, Mario would have probably kept walking backwards through an invisible wall forever, or it would have gone to the end of the level and stopped. I think on one of the shows in G4, they said that they put it in as an easter egg.

    Also, he may have not been old enough to have a nintendo. All us old gamers are starting to hit the retirement homes (a.k.a. the job market.)

    I love how he was just casually playing on his old NES and managed to get screens like those.

    I'm sorry for your dissapointment, you seemed pretty excited about this. I'm sure there are plenty of other game's secrets to search, there will always be dead ends like this one.

    I for one spent several months going through Ocarina of Time Glitches to travel through cutscenes trying to get to the supposed trifoce scene. I never managed to, but everything I did was with little to no help from the internet.

    Anyway, good luck with any other secrets you look for.

    Yeah, the Triforce hoaxes were very popular. Its easy to get people to believe things they want to believe, thats why we see stuff like this all the time. Just about every game with a resonably sized fanbase has these, like Thief and the Crossbow.

    this can also be disproven through the use of bits.

    Note that the chance is 1/20001. that means, in order to determine the current chance, the cart would have to store three numbers, the first being the current number, the second being the max number, being 20001 (because 20001 can not be evenly devided into bits) and the third being the target number. In a standard 8bit format, this would mean they would need to distribute 1 byte for every 255 in all three numbers. this is a total of 79 bytes for each number, or a total of 237 for all three. Now, if you were a nintendo programmer with VERY LIMITED MEMORY AND DATA CONSTRAINTS, would you waste 237 valuable bytes of data memory on a trigger that would only appear only in less then 1% of the game's common use?

    I didn't think so.

    In addition, I do not believe NES programming allowed numbers over 255 to even be considered due to system constraints, so that is another way it could be false as well.

    You can get to the Triforce, one way or another in Ocarina of Time.

    I had a NES, and Super Mario Bros. I just played Zelda a lot, and really had no friends so I didn't hear word about things in the gaming world when something was uncovered.
