In Super Mario Maker what kills Super Mario instantly but not normal Mario?

The only way I see this as being possible is by making a one block high tunnel with the floor being fall-away platforms into lava. Small Mario will be able to run over the blocks, but Super Mario ...

I can't leave a comment or star levels, why?

The reason you can’t comment is because that feature went when miiverse went. All comments were stored on miiverse, so when they discounted miiverse, they deleted all the comments. R.I.P. miiverse.

In Super Mario Maker what kills Super Mario instantly but not normal Mario?

Rather than killing Super Mario, another option we found, to only allow little Mario through, is to have a small downwards drop first before the tunnel. Now Super Mario can't slide in.

Play a course created by another local user

I can't leave a comment or star levels, why?

It could be because you are using another profile to make a game then using another profile on the console to star the level that you make. You cant do that because nintendo banned it

What is missing from Mario Maker for 3DS?

I believe the main complaint is that while you can use Streetpass to share your own levels, you can’t per se make a level, upload it (like the Wii U version) and share the level code. It’s not a ...
