Using a Classic Controller Pro in New Super Mario Bros. Wii by modifying an old Cheat Code


FireStar

1,247 views

I wanted to play NSMBW for the first (kinda) time, in anticipation of the upcoming Super Mario Wonder. I did not feel like shaking the Wii remote though, and looked up other control options for actual hardware. (emulator can work around this pretty easy)

It looked like from some googling, there was an ocarina cheat code to use with wii USB loaders (on your own backed up disc) that would allow one to use a classic controller.

You'll notice some comments about "possible" button mappings.

The controller mapping is Y run, B jump, and R shake. This is fine for the original Classic Controller, but I didn't want to use that controller since the analog shoulder buttons aren't that comfy to use.

Ideally I would want to use a Classic Controller Pro, and use ZR for shake since nintendo changed that to the "main" shoulder button (a weird change that persists to today on Switch Pro Controller)

 

There was some information online about remapping the buttons in another game, DKCR, with another Classic Controller Code by Thomas83Lin, that made sense but didn't seem completely applicable, from reddit.

The responder mentioned "Classic Controller Button Activator = 28200F0A 0000XXXX." , but the first line in the cheat "28200F0A" wasn't in the DKCR nor NSMBW cheat.

This thread does also link an article about the cheat code however, ( http://www.pixlbit.com/news?action=showNewsArticle&newsArticleId=1037 ) which contains comments showing what button binds go with each line of code.

I searched for similar lines in the NSBMW cheat, which led me to find "70A40200" was the R button bind in the cheat code. I substituted the ZR button activator, giving me "70A40004", and the following code.

If you want to change any binds yourself, here's the button activator codes from the reddit thread:

XXXX Values:
0001: Up DPAD.
0002: Left DPAD.
4000: Down DPAD.
8000: Right DPAD.
1000: Minus (Select)
0800: Home.
0400: Plus (Start)
0008: X.
0020: Y.
0040: B.
0010: A.
2000: L.
0080: ZL.
0200: R.
0004: ZR.

 

Hope this helps anyone wanting to play NSMBW on Wii or WiiU. Alternatively you could play in emulator with a Switch Pro controller or some other 2D controller with motion controls, and a good controller experience while also being able to use the tilt controls for a few levels, since this classic controller code can't implement that.
