Create/Modify your own Super Mario World level
Modify Super Mario World levels with this SMW Level Editor (Lunar Magic)
So you've played Super Mario World for years, you know all the secrets, found all of the hidden stuff and you need more. We've stumbled across this nifty Super Mario World level editor called Lunar Magic (by Fu So Ya) that allows you to add, remove and rearrange level elements in Super Mario World for the SNES.
Quick note from the author's site:
"Lunar Magic requires either the American or Japanese version 1.0 Super Mario World SNES ROM, or the American version 1.0 Mario All Stars + World SNES ROM. Even if you have a level saved to your hard drive, Lunar Magic must still first open up the ROM each time the program is run to access information needed for level rendering.
Keep in mind that while game editors are not considered illegal, distribution of commercial game ROMs is. Therefore, the file does not include an actual Super Mario World game ROM. I suggest you check a search engine for other sites that may contain ROMs. "
Below is everything you'll need to get started with modding your favorite Super Mario World level:

The level editor is legal to own/distribute, but the Super Mario World ROM is NOT legal to distribute. We do not host any roms so please don't email us about it! BUT! If you scroll all the way down, we might know where you can find it. :)
After you've modified your Super Mario World rom, you'll want to try it out. ZSNES is one of the best SNES emulators.
