5 star on file save help *possible spoilers*

According to IGN:

1.Clear the Game (beat world 6)
2.Gather all Star coins in Worlds 1-6 and Mushroom/Flower Worlds
3.Gather all Moon Coins in the Star World
4.Open all paths (the ones that cost 5 coins, as well as finding all hidden exits)
5. Get 3 crowns (this means getting 1110 extra lives - 1000 1 crown, 1100 2 crowns, 1110 3 crowns)

I've managed to get everything except for #4. Is this list accurate? I remember reading somewhere that you need to beat the game as Luigi to get a star

'm also wondering about the accuracy on nr. 4. I've beaten the game, have all the paths, star coins and moon coins, but I only have 3 stars. Unless there's some other hidden exit that doesn't lead anywhere like the one in one of the ghost houses.

Hmm what do you mean it doesn't lead anywhere? Does it lead to a mushroom house?

Its accurate as far as I know. You'll have 0 star coins after you opened all the 5-coin paths. Last one is on the star world. A starman house is located there.

Dude hes just speculating and gettin the idea from super mario world. In the forest of illusion ghost house theres a.secret exit that literally leads nowhere it just makez the path flash. So.maybe they did that wit this game to

You will know if there are hidden/branching paths if you look at the map. You will see dots not connected with lines. That means there are still unexplored stages.

I got all the star coins and I have 0 balance now which means I've managed to unlock every mushroom house

So that only means 1 of 2 things:

1- I missed a secret path which again, I'm not sure is possible or otherwise I would've missed 3 star coins
2- I haven't used any of the mushroom houses I have unlocked so many I need to visit them all?

You don't need to enter the mushroom houses. I cleared my 2nd file without using any mushroom house. Got my 5 shinning stars.

Maybe you used the golden leaf?

Repost again. Maybe this is your problem. Look at the ala connect the dots map in every world.

That has nothing to do with the 5-star requirement though (look up)
Plus my stars are shining cause I haven't used the golden leaf
