The N64 is a classic console that gamers will be playing for many years to come–which is fortunate, as it takes over four centuries to perform the newest glitch found in the original Paper Mario. Sound impossible? Well, glitch hunter, Stryder7x made it happen.
As some of you may remember, there is a seemingly useless block in Dry Dry Dessert that spawns new item blocks after being hit 1, 10, and 100 times. Realizing that this block’s whack count must be saved somewhere in the game, Stryder7x found the unsigned four byte value that stores it. It turns out that the maximum value this variable can hold is 4,294,967,295–so Stryder7x hit the block, and hit it again, and again and again, and again, and finally with the magic of hacking, hit the magic number. You can save yourself a few centuries and find out what happens at 4,294,967,296 by watching the video below.
