Details for No block interaction if sprite is falling off screen
SMW Patches - No block interaction if sprite is falling off screen
File Name: No block interaction if sprite is falling off screen
Version History: View
Authors: GreenHammerBro
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: Yes
Featured: No
Description: This patch fixes a bug in Super Mario World that sprites that fall off screen still interact with objects (see the screenshots). This can be proven by Koopa shells suddenly veering left or right when they pass through the solid blocks as well as triggering custom blocks when they shouldn't.

Seems to be broken for Wigglers if you make them angry and then hit them with a shell/object while they're still transitioning to angry.

This can be fairly easily fixed by checking the sprite number for Wiggler and reverting to default behavior for them, but perhaps a more gracious fix is possible?

I'd appreciate if we could have a flag that'd bypass the check; I think the SML sprites use value 02 to make the "squish then fall off screen" animation. Not sure though.
But it works fine, so I'm approving it.

Thanks for fixing this patch, telinc1.

Fixed the original patch's incredibly faulty SA-1 conversion. It missed two addresses and mistakenly set the "sprite blocked status" sprite table to the "sprite slope" sprite table.

Thanks to Mogu94 for noticing and reporting the issue. It most definitely should have been caught by the previous moderator, especially considering that it's plainly visible by just looking at the code.
