    Default NES Donkey Kong Pie Factory

    Hello everyone,
    I just picked up a PowerPak for my NES and I'd really like to get the ROM for Donkey Kong that has the Pie Factory screen.
    I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Many thanks,
    StephenJ

    This site doesn't condone ROM requests. A Google search is all I or anyone else here can suggest.

    I question where the ROM was created? Did Nintendo realize that they majorly goofed in the original NES release and add the 4th level to the VC version to remedy the situation? Is this the handiwork of a homebrewer?

    You question it?

    I really doubt that Nintendo released a homebrew. And if it's a homebrew, it's strange how it didn't become known to anyone else until Nintendo themselves released it as a WiiWare title. How would you propose that Nintendo became aware of it but nobody else did? I imagine they'd just delete an email if some unknown person ever had emailed them a hacked rom image for consideration so I don't see how a homebrewer could've directly contacted them himself.

    And do you really think that the pie factory level appeared there by accident and that they accidently released this as a promotional WiiWare title just for the heck of it when the NES original had already been a VC release for years?

    Of course they recognized that the NES release was lacking some major elements and took a step to at least partially rectify it. That was the entire point of the thing. Without the differences, it's just the same thing many people already had owned for years off of the Virtual Console.

    Nintendo included it on their 25th anniversary Mario Wii consoles in Europe. Someone ripped it from there, and others discovered it seemed to be a "hacked" version of NES Donkey Kong.

    Never did I even insinuate that. Just asking a simple question.

    You asked just that. If this wasn't a partial remedy to the limitations of the NES original, why else would it of been created and released when the NES original was already available?

    The very existence of it tells us that Nintendo recognized that the Famicom original was lacking in many ways and that they could do better. Otherwise, why would they of ever created this and released it as a WiiWare title when the original port was already available on the Virtual Console?

    Like I said, it wasn't done and released by accident.

    After the ROM was harvested from the European Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Wii there was a thread, I believe at Lost Levels, that examined the code. Apparently the missing stage was hacked into the original ROM by Nintendo themselves and from what I remember they did a pretty sloppy job of getting it in there.

    Nah it is cement factory, none of the stages have a thing to do with a bakery. I don't blame him for writing it as it's fools who call it a pie factory.
