This page details one or more prototype versions of Super Mario Strikers.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
  • Put screenshots of prototype character models from Models Resource into the prototype page.
  • Rip and compare stages, music, and sound effects.

A demo of Super Mario Strikers was released on Interactive Multi-Game Demo Disc Version 31. The demo features a lot of leftover E3 stuff that it could be enabled in the user.ini file.


In the user.ini file, the file contains this.

e3_build =true
fev2 =true
newloadscreen =true

replacing "true" with "false" will change some of the features.

  • e3_build enables the save feature, the E3 character selection with more characters, stages, and options.
  • fev2 enables a fix when the characters don't show up at the character selection. It also enables the E3 side screen, and the E3 pause screen.
  • newloadscreen enables the E3 loading screen.

You can also enable it by using this code here.

The E3 version features a very early character selection screen along with some characters that have different outfits.

In the demo, Mario and Donkey Kong doesn't wear their soccer outfits. The background is simpler, and the outline around the characters is more jagged.
