Better Powerdown

SMW Patches → Better Powerdown

Submission Details

Name: Better Powerdown
Author: MarioFanGamer
Added:
Version History: View
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: Unlike as the other powerdown patches here around this one has got an own powerdown animation for each powerup status. You can add more animations for each powreup state too! The automatic reserve item drop is also changed a bit as you can change it to either no autodrop or only autodrop if big. Read the readme for more information.

Now added support for the SA-1 pack. Also added an instruction how to use it with more power ups.

Removed remoderation tag, as it is already in accord to the standards.

A simple update to work better with my patch.

Just a small thing about the patch that nobody noticed:

Code
print "Freespace used: 0x",freespaceuse," bytes."


freespaceuse is in decimal rather than hex, so that '0x' is not needed.

The changes I made in this version are that this version doesn't support LX5's patch anymore because is uses an add on system.
As such, I have deleted them because if you don't enter the power ups in the same order in my patch, the power ups plays the wrong animation (should be just visual, though), not to mention that these are as noted by JTS if forced (which they were) redundant.
It doesn't mean that my patch won't support his patch, though. I have include an instruction how to make it support with more power ups.

TheInsanity115 said that this patch will make your ROM crash if the player gets hurt or by pressing Select to drop the item in the Item Box.
I found this in the Portuguese forum.

Pretty much the same as the previous version except sa-1 support.
The support for LX5's power up package is nice too, though maybe a define as to not waste bytes if people don't use it would have been nice.

Code
Actions:
dw $FFFF	; Unused
...


If you had just used DEX before going for the table, that could be avoided.
Also, if ever another update comes around, maybe you wanna replace those FFFF with a label pointing to an RTS. Seems more save.

Speaking of LX5's custom power up patch which I mentioned in the readme, he has expanded the pointers. You also only need that version if you really use custom power ups.
