I'm a fan of Mario games. I see people posting such of these snapshots and I love them so much. I can see the whole landscape of the level.

I want to have more of them. My question is how can we get such ones?


Would be lovely if we know how to print such snapshots from the game, e.g. SNES emulation.

There are several online archives for video games' maps and level screenshots

Try for example The Video Game Atlas, it breaks screenshots by platform and game, then lists all levels and their available screenshots. For example this is a link to the Super Mario Bros. screenshots, below is the level 1-1 screenshot. Super Mario Bros. level 1-1 screenshot

The site itself somewhat lists how those images were captured. "ripped" probably means it came for the game files themselves, possibly by stitching together screenshots from emulators; "originals" were made outside the game.

I go to your site but really don't know where to catch such snapshots. Would be nice if you may pick some specific link. Thank you. – Nam G VU Jan 25 '13 at 11:13
I probably didn't completely understand you question. When you asked how can you "get" these maps, I assumed you ask where can you find these maps, not how to create them yourself. While the site I linked gives "pre-made" maps, I'm not sure it gives tutorials on how to make those yourself – JohnoBoy Jan 25 '13 at 13:22
You are an awesome guy @JohnoBoy – Nam G VU Feb 1 '13 at 8:34
