Message Box "Recoding"

SMW Patches → Message Box "Recoding"

Submission Details

Name: Message Box "Recoding"
Author: Chdata
Version History: View
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: The main attractions of this patch are:

Creates a "You hit this info box from below" flag. Also when it's set it becomes set to whatever the number of the message the info box was playing.

Creates a flag that when set, uses a new system for displaying messages. If you set this flag, message boxes will play from the CURRENT SUBLEVEL instead of the first level you enter on the overworld. It auto-detects invalid levels and if you are in one, it plays from the translevel number.

Automatically restores $13BF (translevel number) when a message is finished popping up. This is useful incase you want to temporarily change $13BF to another number so you can play multiple messages in a single sublevel. (For example by using custom sign blocks or NPC's.)

(If you change $13BF and don't restore it screen exits can get screwed up.)

For further information, refer to the README.

This is also happening to me. I would love to know how to fix this, because I do NOT want to redo everything on my old backup.

This would be great for a "No overworld" hack!

A good patch for people who still uses the original message box and want to improve its functions a bit.
