This patch creates a prompt that lets players choose whether to quickly restart a level without visiting the overworld after dying. Probably useful for hard or kaizo-light difficulty hacks. Now compatible with Lunar Magic 3.00!
- fast reset
- easily configurable multiple checkpoints
LM's level transition hack is required in order to make this patch work properly. It's silently installed to your ROM when you check the "Use separate settings for Midway Entrance" option for a midway entrance in any level and save the ROM with LM.
EDIT: Nevermind, just figured it out. I'm super dumb, forgot to move letters.bin
This is probably just me, but I'm getting this error when installing retry.asm

I apologize that I should have mentioned that the patch is not compatible with old save data (sram) saved before this patch, so loading it after applying the patch may cause various problems such as game freezing after selecting retry, or sending players to level 0.
To resolve this, you need to remove the old save data. You could use the erase data menu in the titlescreen, or remove the save file from your system.
I might be missing something obvious, but after applying this version of the patch as is to base SMW, collecting a midway started changing the color of the back area of the level. Inserting a new one manually yielded the same result. Help would be appreciated, this is is a fantastic patch otherwise.
Works flawlessly, and I absolutely loved the custom midway objects feature. I've just corrected a small oversight with the multiplication routine which didn't include a proper SA-1 counterpart, which caused custom midpoint objects not to work as intended. For anyone using SA-1, please redownload this patch.
