Made a quick SA-1 conversion of the alternate Autosave patch Zeldara posted below

Only tested it once so use at your own risk

This patch has a major issue: the autosave doesn't work unless you walk to another level. If you close the game while standing on the same level (say, because you just died after a midpoint, or cleared a switch palace), it won't save.

Alcaro made an xkas autosave patch for me in 2011, which saves as soon as you gain control on the overworld, as well as when you walk to another level. I'm pretty sure he submitted it back then-- I wonder if something was lost in this SA-1 conversion? The code looks entirely different.

Anyway, here's an Asar conversion of Alcaro's old autosave patch. I've tested it on the vanilla game, and it did indeed save after the yellow switch/after dying at a midpoint without needing to walk elsewhere.

(no SA-1 support, someone else feel free to convert who knows how to do that)

This is one of those patches I feel should be defaulted into LM.
