Details for One File, One Player
SMW Patches - One File, One Player Link - Show random
File Name: One File, One Player
Version History: View
Authors: Noobish Noobsicle
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: No
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: I'm quite surprised that nobody had made a patch like this yet. This patch removes the options of having multiple save files or multiple players. Instead, if the game has never been saved after the installation of this patch, you will be taken to the intro screen upon pressing a button on the title screen. If the game has been saved, you will see two options: Continue game (followed by the number of exits gotten) or New game. New game will take you to the intro screen, while Continue game will resume the game where you last saved.

For the love of god, please give credit if you use this patch. I spent almost 23 hours of continuous work on this patch, sometimes vibrating so hard from frustration my headphones fell off. (I exceeded my two 'freespaces' by THREE BYTES EACH!!!)

Oh, and this patch requires no freespace. It uses the unused area that the file select screen used.

This version fixes a bug where the digits gets swaped on 10+ exits.

This is messing with the new retry patch if using with the build in sram I guess - would be great to make them compatible

I wouldn't recommend using this with retry 3.06b + SRAM+ 1.03 + Individual Dragon Coin Save, I'm pretty sure that it breaks when used in conjunction with these three patches.

Tested with: Asar 1.71, ZMZ 1.08, SA-1 1.32 and LM 3.04.

This patch is already up to the standards and requires no remoderation.

For everyone who wants a 3 file system but one player only, here's your tutorial:
Make an asm file and patch this to your rom:

org $009E6E
db $01

Then download this tool, open your rom with it, and get rid of Player 2 text. That's it! You can also change the 1 Player Game text to something of your choice.

Can you ever make a patch where it has three files, but just one player? #smw{o_0}

I converted this two years ago, I guess I should have submitted it. And yeah it is a bit dodgy.
Posted by: zacmario - | Link
The conversion to SA-1 is tad bit dodgy, but it appears to work fine. All addresses are remapped and the validation byte in not in the high bytes of Map16 (which come immediately after the save data on SA-1). It still works on LoROM, too.

During the moderation, I added a screenshot and fixed the icon that appears for having 96 exits. This was because of two wrong defines and existed in the original patch, so it's not the fault of the conversion (and thus not a removal reason).

This may or may not be a no-brainer, but this patch will massively break when combined with SRAM Plus or BW-RAM Plus. After all, all three patches rewrite the same routines.

Upon testing this, I can confirm that this patch not only works, but also creates a unique experience where, if a player does not use a save state, MUST keep playing until they reach one of the game's pre-designated save points (Castles, Ghost Houses, Switch Palaces, etc.)

I really like this patch. :)
