Tip: Take advantage of easy to install Patches in your hack. For example, the Classic Piranha Plant fix should be considered if you are planning to insert that sprite in your hack.

So, I've been working on an easy/medium kaizo hack in my spare time for the last few months (i'm almost done I promise) and I'm wondering if there's some sort of standard for jump indicators like this:

Right now, the earlier levels have lots of this, whereas the later levels have literally none. Is this too confusing or should I expect the people who have reached that point to be able to figure it out?

Thanks Guys!

FYI my first post on the site, I have been stalking the site for a while though. Can't wait to submit this hack once it is finally done!

I think i'll try to avoid overly targeted shell jumps so that shouldn't be an issue, but i have got one or two semi-blind jumps so i'll keep them indicated.

I'm using blue coins for blind spin jumps and normal coins for other direction; plus a few SMM SMW arrows for directional item throws.

I'll probably put only absolutely critical indicators in for the last five levels. I think part of the fun is working out the strat for each section.

Thanks for the reply. I'll go back through my levels and double check that I haven't left any blind jumps without indicators.

Hey guys, I'm currently in the process of testing my ~30 exit kaizo hack and I've noticed that after beating a few levels, Mario's sprite on the overworld will have a halo (see image).

EDIT: why is the img tag not working lol.

I'm not actually sure what triggers this in the original game so I would like to know that, but also if there are any known fixes, as this also changes Mario's animation to a still picture. I have tried deleting the tile in GFX10.bin and that removes the halo, but the animations obviously remain.
I've also searched for 'halo' in the ROM/RAM map but its rather empty.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks guys!

Thanks for the response, however I already have a NOP #3 (EAEAEA) in place there. Shouldn't that accomplish the same thing?

Also, this might sound dumb but my ROM is SA-1, do you know what the 6 digit bank-address for the lives 0DBE is so I can view it in the snes debugger? I never figured out the conversion.

EDIT: I tried setting $6DBE (current lives) to #$30 at gamemode_init_E and D (overworld) but no dice. I'll try the db $AD patch next.

I am using the retry-v2.06a patch for fast retry but I set !lose_lives in the retry_table.asm to $00 which should disable losing lives.

I did change the gamemode_init_14 to set the lives to $30 and I haven't seen the issue since then, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'll update if I see the issue again.

Yikes dude its still happening! :O
Does anyone know where the halo code is on the overworld so I can NOP it? Also has anyone else had this problem with retry.asm?

EDIT: Ok so I looked at the ROM map and I found that it says to set the code that Decs the lives to some hex instead of nop 3. It looks like a JMP so maybe it will be fixed now.
