Thextech 128.png

TheXTech - it's a platform game engine written in C++, is a full port of source code of SMBX 1.3 which was originally written in Visual Basic 6. Created by Wohlstand after one month since original SMBX source code was been released for two purposes: providing a free and open-source, cross-platform, and accurate implementation of the SMBX Engine to allow playing of old levels and episodes, created for an original game, with the same behavior as the original game had; get a more convenient research model for a Moondust Engine development.

Important resources

SDL Mixer X

SDL Mixer X - the audio library, a fork from SDL Mixer version 2.0 made by Wohlstand. Used in Moondust Project, in LunaLUA, in SMBX-38a, and in TheXTech.

LunaLUA and SMBX2



Super Mario Bros. X2 (also known as SMBX2, SMBX 2.0) is a collaborative, open-source project to improve and expand upon the original SMBX. SMBX2 was founded by Horikawa Otane.

Standards and research

Smbx64 standard.png
  • File and Features standard
    • The SMBX64 Standard is the oldest standard supported by Moondust Project. It has strict limits and is only partially customizable.
    • The Moondust Standard is the default standard of the Moondust Project. Based on the SMBX64 standard, it boasts numerous bug fixes and enhanced flexibility over the original.

Vanilla SMBX Engine resources

These documents contain information researched against the vanilla Super Mario Bros. X engine and are necessary in order for implementing a level interpreter that supports and is compatible with, a significant amount of existing levels and episodes.
