Firstly you need the SMW ROM without a header, and should expand the ROM to 8Mbits using Lunar Expand or with a Hex Editor. The cheats effect that we will be coding is rather extensive. When you grab a coin instead of increasing the coin count it: gives you 99 lives, set the timer to 999, gives you the Cape and sets the item reserve box to contain the Fire Flower.
Since every coin (including Yoshi coins) triggers the cheat, that means that the coin you get at the end when you pass through the end-of-level gate will set your time to 999, meaning you automatically complete the level with an impossibly high time. Since the total time you beat a level in adds to your game’s score, it means you can easily get record-breaking scores.
This patch has been tested on a UFO Super Drive Pro 8 (an SNES copier) and has been verified work properly even on a real SNES.
