Details for Minimalist Status Bars
SMW Patches - Minimalist Status Bars
File Name: Minimalist Status Bars
Version History: View
Authors: Ladida
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: 3 different patches that will make the status bar minimalistic, as seen in my 24h contest winter 2012 entry

status_top.asm will put the status bar at the top of the screen, like in smw
status_bottom.asm will put the status bar at the bottom of the screen, like in smb3
status_double.asm will put a status bar at the top and a different one at the bottom

no freeram needed (some weird ram is used)

see pretty pictures below, and readme for more info

UPDATE: the tilemap is now uploaded to the offscreen part of layer 1, freeing up the layer 3 tilemap. the palette has also been isolated, and properties are located alongside tiles in RAM. also, proper SA-1 support

UPDATE2: switched to a different ram due to exanimation conflict

Now works with SA-1 Pack 1.31 and LM3
Changed the used RAM to fix some oversights

RAM address locations to edit tile numbers and properties:
$0B05-$0B24: Tile number top row
$0B25-$0B44: Tile number bottom row
$0B45-$0B64: Tile properties top row
$0B65-$0B84: Tile properties bottom row

Top and bottom version:
$0B05-$0B24: Tile number row
$0B45-$0B64: Tile properties row

To get tile position, formula is TilePos = AddrStart + X, where X is the horizontal position, ranging from 0-31, in tiles, increasing from left to right.

The current version is generating garbage tiles on my clean ROM.
