Details for Super Status Bar v2.2
SMW Patches - Super Status Bar v2.2
File Name: Super Status Bar v2.2
Added:
Version History: View
Authors: HammerBrother, Kaijyuu
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: This is a status bar hack that does the following:

- Allows a non-ASM programmer to modify each and every tile in the 5 lines comprising the status bar. You can change any tile not modified by Smallhacker's Status Bar editor tool.

- (advanced version only) Allows a non-ASM programmer to move the various counters (time, score, lives, coins, ect) anywhere on the status bar with ease. Also allows one to move the item box item anywhere on the screen (does not affect where it drops).

- Allows ASM programmers to change the tiles (and properties of those tiles) in their own custom sprites/patches/ect much more easily. No longer are you limited to the old 55 tiles; now it's 160.

Comes with a compatibility and an advanced version. The compatibility version uses the old RAM addresses in addition to the new, so stuff like the newbie's custom boss should still work.
The advanced version completely bypasses the old ram addresses and a few routines along with being much faster.

This latest version TRULY fixes the bottom line cutoff.

See readme for updates.

EDIT: Added sa-1 support on both patches.

Would there be a way to make the bonus stars use standard numbers?

(E) Nevermind, I got it working, you need to change:

Code
DATA_008E06:		      db $B7

DATA_008E07:		      db $C3,$B8,$B9,$BA,$BB,$BA,$BF,$BC
				  db $BD,$BE,$BF,$C0,$C3,$C1,$B9,$C2
				  db $C4,$B7,$C5


to

Code
DATA_008E06:		      db $FC

DATA_008E07:		      db $00,$FC,$01,$FC,$02,$FC,$03,$FC
				  db $04,$FC,$05,$FC,$06,$FC,$07,$FC
				  db $08,$FC,$09

in SuperStatusBar_Advancedv2.asm.

That'll load the standard numbers as the bottom tiles and the blank tiles as the top tiles. You do need to have the star counter positioned such that it doesn't cover anything else up or push off the top of the screen, though, so I'd still like an alternate method.

This update mainly changes the documentation, which is substantially improved from the previous version. The only code change is that the LoROM and SA-1 defines were merged into one file, which makes the files cleaner.

It now have a JavaScript html file that makes it easy to find what byte of a given tile.
