So, today I discovered a way to softlock this game in editor mode. I reproduced it 3 times in a row by doing this:

- In editor mode place a warp pipe
- Make the 2nd area underwater
- Point the pipe in up direction
- Place the pipe so its 1 tile under the thick line of the grid (the one that marks the camera size)
- Test the game and try to enter in the 1st area pipe. When entering 2º area, the game will be softlocked.

You cant do anything. Mario and the timer are freezed, and you can't pause or do anything except reseting the console. You can't save the map either, so if you didn't save the data will be lost. Touching the screen makes the hand appear in the TV so its not a crash.

If I didn't explained correctly, I can upload a map, but it wouldn't be fun to get softlocked while playing a 100-mario challenge just for entering a pipe.

EDIT: Seems that doesn't matter if the style is SMW or if Mario is carrying a shell, so I edit the post.

Yeah, I can already think of a troll design off the top of my head.

And your levels won't last long as people will report them.

the 1º area pipe while holding a shell (again, dunno if this matters). When entering 2º area,


What do you mean one degree and two degree?

It's probably his way of saying "first" and "second". Maybe he's Italian or Spanish?

I tried this out a bit. When you create an underwater level with no blocks above the first screen limit, the game automatically creates a ceiling and I assume just doesn't create a level above that point. Normally, you just can't access that area. However, if you use a upward facing pipe at the upper screen boundary, you bypass this limit. The game tries to put Mario in the out of bounds area and freezes since it doesn't know what to do. You can do this with the first area being underwater, you just need to come in from the sub area. You don't need a shell to trigger it. Game style doesn't matter.
No amount of rallying would let me beat raytan7585.

Softlock? It's called freezing. Where do you people come up with these terms?

Yeah, sorry, i will edit the main post, didn't known it was only in spanish that type of enumeration.

Ok, so seems more dangerous now since you can trigger it without being smw or carrying a shell. Hope this is fixed before troll levels appears.

Freezing is when the wii makes the "beeeeeeeeeep" sound. Softlock is when the game is running normally with the song but you don't have any control over the game. You can check some softlock bugs on youtube from various games.

I did this just now. You don't have to reset the console. Just press the home button and exit the game.
