19XXTE is a mod of Super Smash Bros. It is the first notable mod for the game, with development having started in May of 2015. 19XXTE is based on 20XX Tournament Edition; that is, the purpose of the mod is to assist in running tournaments, help players learn the game, and add other cosmetic changes instead of exclusively modifying characters or stages. 19XXTE has seen tournament use, being notably used at GENESIS 3 and Super Smash Con 2016; its most important feature is the ability to add a timer to a stock match like in later games, saving tournament organizers from the trouble of keeping track of match time externally.

19XXTE is a ROM hack; that is, the ROM for Smash 64 is modified to include altered code that allows the game to run differently than expected. While intended for use on emulators, specialised hardware for the Nintendo 64 can potentially allow for the mod to be run on original console.

Development on 19XXTE is ongoing, with the current version being 1.1 Beta. Another version, 19XXCE, includes more features than 19XXTE, but is more opted for use in casual play, training and combo contests.
