WIP:New Super Mario Bros. 2

From Hiccup
To do:
  • Eep Cheep
  • Check if Snake Block has unused setting that makes it use the unused icy texture or the unused icy snake block tile
  • Check Korean and Taiwan/Hong Kong Gold Edition versions and Taiwan/Hong Kong DLC when/if they are dumped and find a way to compare DLC .icn files (1, 2, 3)

Unused Models[edit]

Gold Spiny[edit]

There are archives for gold versions of the Spiny (togezo_G.bcres and paipo_G.bcres), despite the fact that when the Gold Ring is activated, Spinies turn into coins.

Early Gold Koopa[edit]

The normal (non-gold) Koopa Troopa model archive, nokonokoA.bcres, contains an early Gold Koopa model which comes with an early texture. There are also two more early textures contained within the archive, that would have gone with the normal Koopa model. The final gold Koopa Model (which is the same as the normal Koopa model) and texture is contained in a separate archive, nokonokoG.bcres, like the other gold enemy models.

Unused Graphics[edit]

World Map Diamonds[edit]

Like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the World Maps have 3D diamonds that mark the path spots, but they aren't visible in-game.

Early World Map Path[edit]


Like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, this texture from New Super Mario Bros. is used to mark the course spots on the world map models, but it's invisible in game.

Blue Block Shards[edit]

xxxx Blue Blocks have shard graphics which appear if they are destroyed, but destroying them isn't possible without hacking.

Unused Animations[edit]

To do:
  • Unused Goomba (kuribo) animations?
  • block_pata unused animation (sea)?
  • Toad has animations leftover from Super Mario 3D Land
  • The grounded Piranha Plant has an animation leftover from NSMBW: "freeze"
  • (Source: Original TCRF research)

    Unused Music[edit]

    Gold Ring Tracks[edit]

    Several music tracks in the game have accompanying accompanying "sparkly sound" tracks meant to play when a Gold Ring is in effect but are used for places that don't have Gold Rings in them, and thus are never heard. It is not known whether these were meant to be used, or are just a result of the developers being thorough when creating the audio assets.
