Tip: Switch palace switches normally disappear if you replay the level. However, if you insert them as direct Map16 and use the hex-edit at $00EEB2 in the ROM map, you can replay the level without a problem.
So I have some people sending me PM telling me my patch doesn't work but I don't understand because I tested it just fine.
I made another one submitted today, if someone has issues can you tell me?
I definitely used a clean rom of the original game to do that, USA version. Checked with clean ROM, and I tested my latest patch as well, it's working.
I mean that would be embarassing after all this time.
Perchance will there be a convenient thread/post with download links to all of the submissions when this is all over?
I ask because I'm interested in doing a (mostly) blind live-stream of every entry and being able to download all of them in one sitting would make the thing monumentally easier.
I imagine that there will be an archive at some point. If nothing else, the judges generally get an archive of the submissions, though the patch names for the submissions are usually obfuscated to try and prevent contestant bias. Not sure if we'll plan on sharing that one because of that fact. Maybe someone's already putting one together.
