Directions for how to get the fix set up can be found over on the undertaking’s GitHub page, however note that you must track down your own Super Mario World ROM as a component of the interaction.

Albeit this hack simply covers Super Mario World, the expectation is to foster a standard that can ultimately be applied across all SNES games. Another designer, ocesse, is working diligently on a comparative fix for Super Metroid, and Vilela told RetroRGB in March that once the two patches are finished “we will probably have a strong standard which future ROM modders will actually want to apply to any SNES game. That is our goal.”
