If you have SMBX 1.4.1, you can unlock this minigame. It says if you beat it, a hidden feature unlocks. But me and DarkMecha so far can't beat it. If you can beat it, you will get the following

-FanofSMBX's Graphics Pack 1.4 Beta (over 30 MB)
-Squishy Rex's Online Graphics Pack Early Access
- (your item here)

If anyone wants to add to the bounty, you can. If anyone can beat this game and find out what the hidden feature is, you will receive the items above and the adoration of the whole SMBX community!

And Warning! You have to be a math expert! There will be negative numbers, algebra, Euclidian algorithms, and who knows what else! You have to get probably over 50 questions in a row right in 3 hours or less (starting easy and getting harder) to win the prize!

I fail, I only got 52 correct answers. I don't like that when you don't know the correct answer you will receive a punishment of even -6 points, and I have not any idea of the number of questions you should have to beat the game. I'm really curious because even the Chineses haven't discovered the hidden functions, and sounds interesting!
I noticed that the replies are generally repetitive, so we could write the complex replies here and copy & past, for example if the question is:

ABC16537 can be divided by 67, x=?
-Reply here-

So that if you don't know the reply you could check this topic and probably beat the game. This could work. :)

Whoever got the idea of putting this minigame into SMBX 1.4.1 really hates society, it's ridiculous! Let's see who is going to waste his/her time on this minigame, I wonder if it's even completable?

Has anyone thought about using things like Cheat Engine/Process Hacker to dump the program's memory and get the solutions?
Do you want fries with that?

I found in cheat engine the adresse for the number of the question (Address : 0014DF58) but I don't know where the minigame stop, ever with the 100th question the mini game don't stop.

I will see if I found other informations.

EDIT : I've got a overflow after to give a good answer in the 300th question, but in the config file I got this :

DisableHiddenFunctions=E5B2EA99BBE38BFD084BD60FF15D50DA
RegBaseSN=F5DFB33038AD2A9FE560E7CDA3114E16
RegCode1=4209AB606736F5848F1F6C1197C90260

What do Regbase and regcode mean ?

Huh, does that mean that there's no way to actually finish this mini game? If so, I really wonder if there's a way to bypass the minigame and go straight to the "hidden features", if there are any.

Thanks! Good work! I don't think the winning is dependent on question number, but rather points score. You know how it give you +1 for correct and -1 for wrong? I think you need 50,75,100 points to win. This means that you can hardly miss any of 1st 50 questions.

It seems that the points are the number of question.
Else, you can broke the number of question to 1 to have easy question and have always correct answer.

My suggestion is to try to answer as many easy questions as possible please.

Added after 1 hour 22 minutes:
Also maybe the game unlocks something if your score is high enough, only after 3:00:00 is up.

Like I said more up, I've got two extra lines in config file :

DisableHiddenFunctions=E5B2EA99BBE38BFD084BD60FF15D50DA
RegBaseSN=F5DFB33038AD2A9FE560E7CDA3114E16
RegCode1=4209AB606736F5848F1F6C1197C90260

I want to know what Regbase and RegCode mean, I've see no difference in the software, and what is the E5B2 etc...

Sometimes when I meddle with config, it is not the way SMBX wants, so it resets it. I mean to copy your save file.

Hmm, not quite. That's why I'm asking others to do it.
Im asking you to do one of these things:
1. Correctly answers at least 50-75 questions, and let time run out afterwards, right? (If you are scared of dfficult questions, set question number to 1 for every hard question)
2. Just set your question number to 200 and let time run out (do other things while you wait)

I'm sorry to be so demanding, but I want to make sure that those aren't the win criteria for the minigame.

Apparently if you use a Windows program while you're doing the exercises the game will crash, be careful! /viewtopic.php?f=29&t=599&p=4128#p4128
I'm not pretty sure about what are the programs that will make crash, however this is something important I think we should have in mind.

I have no idea why I'm doing this minigame, but I did discover something interesting, at least.

Image

Image

For every 100 fails, the minigame gives you a 'special reward'. This reward extends your time left by an hour (if you do it while your remaining time is already over 24 hours, it just becomes 24 hours), and your remaining fails by 100. In addition, question numbers are definitely the same as points. Getting a 5 points pushes you forward 5 questions, while losing 3 points pushes you back 3 questions. However, for every point you lose, you lose thirty seconds also.

Thank you for being so inquisitive into this mini game. You've solved the points=question# question. If Catskart doesn't want to, I'll try to set the question# to a high value and wait for time to run out, and we'll see what happens!
