Dad Hacks DonkeyKong For His Daughter

File this under tech love. 

Mike Mika is a techy dad who loves his daughter. When she wanted to play Donkey Kong the game as Princess Pauline, and discovered she couldn't, she got upset. (She had played Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Brothers II, and naturally thought she could do it in the older original Donkey Kong.)

 Not taking no for an answer, Mika pulled an all nighter and hacked the ROM of the game, replacing Mario with Pauline, redrawing all of the frames, and replacing the M at the top with a P for Princess Pauline.  

Voila!  Instant Videogame Equality!

(You need the original ROM and XDELTA to apply it. Which actually, since I don't know what that means, let's me completely out. ) 

 Here's his Youtube video (which is rightfully going viral)
