Default Editing a message

Hey all.

I'm trying to do something I'm not even sure is possible and I have no idea where to start...

Let me firstly explain what I want to do:
I want to hack super mario brothers 1 so that if you reach a certain level.. lets say when you defeat Bowser for the first time and the toad tells you the princess is in another castle...

he/she (not really sure) must say something else and then the game must stop. No more..

Can anybody give me a starting place? Some Info maybe?

Editing the text is easy as hell. Just find the corresponding hex values for each letter (there are mapped out details of this all over if you search). As far as making the game end, you could feasibly crash it or replace the warper location from going to world 2 to being the end of the game.

Thank you for the help King Killa.

I downloaded Hex Editor Neo and I went through the HEX values. Can't find anything that resembles the "Thanxk you mario! but our princess is in another castle"
I tried looking for it in ASCII and HEX, no luck..

You have to use a table file, it probably isn't going to be stored with ASCII values. There are also utilities to change the text, I believe. Have you looked at the tools over at Romhacking.Net? You can limit the search to only utilities for the original Super Mario Bros.
