Unused Graphics

Two sizes of a dummy image, used in numerous spots throughout the game.

Super-Mario-Party-Placeholder-Map-1.png Super-Mario-Party-Placeholder-Map-2.png Super-Mario-Party-Placeholder-Map-3.png

Three placeholder images that say "Map 2", "Map 3", and "Map 4" respectively. They follow a single, presumably used map image.


A placeholder for the title logo, aptly named menu_titlelogo. The text translates to "Title".

Three placeholder images used for shader testing.

Filename Oddities

The file names for the playable characters each have a corresponding ID at the beginning of the name, but there are some gaps. Specifically, IDs 08, 09, and 57 are missing. These IDs correspond to Mario Party 10's internal character IDs. 57 would have been Blooper, but that character was turned into a boss for Super Mario Party. Additionally, 08 and 09 would have been Toadette and Toad respectively.

Some effect files have "10stars" in their name. "10stars" is Mario Party 10s codename, so these are probably reused from that game.

Internal Project Name

Super Mario Party's internal project name is "buffet", according to RomFS\.nrr\buffet.nrr and the string "E:\work\buffet\buffet\Programs\Outputs\NX64\buffet\NX_Master\buffet.nss" in the code.

Debugging Features

In certain LUA files in the BEA files, debugging features are mentioned but hidden from normal users, it is currently unknown on how to enable them.

Leftover Mario Party 10 audio

To do:
There may also be leftover/recycled audio in BFSARs, search them.

Just like bringing over previous textures (and forgetting to use some of them), the game also has some BFSTMs related in the ROMFS filesystem, with the start of the name as: TEST, which are often full music from the previous game (or reused in this game), some are have durations cut. The few with the 10S (10stars) mention in the name proves the file being originally used in Mario Party 10.

  • TEST_SM_BGM_BDS001_RES_WINNER.dspadpcm.bfstm is the Who Won? music, this is unused.
  • TEST_SM_BGM_MGM02_A.dspadpcm.bfstm is a cut version of the Coin Challenge theme, removing some intro length.
  • TEST10S_SM_JIN_BDS001_OP_SM_JIN_BD001_OP.dspadpcm.bfstm is the Welcome to Mushroom Park theme.
  • TEST10S_SM_BGM_BDS001_RES_SM_BGM_SBD001_RESULT.dspadpcm.bfstm is the Nice Job! theme.
  • TEST_SM_BGM_QUE000_OP.dspadpcm.bfstm is the Picture Time! theme.

Demo leftovers

Various files in the BEA archives have been named and/or mention(s) demo, these are likely files from E3/PAX demo versions of the game and are leftover in the final game.
