My three year old daughter and I play a lot of old games together. Her favorite is Donkey Kong. Two days ago, she asked me if she could play as the girl and save Mario. She's played as Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. 2 and naturally just assumed she could do the same in Donkey Kong. I told her we couldn't in that particular Mario game, she seemed really bummed out by that. So what else am I supposed to do? Now I'm up at midnight hacking the ROM, replacing Mario with Pauline. I'm using the 2010 NES Donkey Kong ROM. I've redrawn Mario's frames and I swapped the palettes in the ROM. I replaced the M at the top with a P for Pauline. Thanks to Kevin Wilson for giving me the lead on the tools and advice.
Download the DK Pauline patch! Note: You need the original ROM and XDELTA to apply it. Enjoy! http://codemystics.ca/downloads/DK_Pauline.zip
Some of you were asking about the details on the Game Boy marriage proposal I hid in a game years ago. Kill Screen did an article on it right here: http://killscreendaily.com/articles/articles/romance/
