Description: The Specter of Torment-Styled Wallclimb and Walljump patch, by Erik, merged with a request by idol during remoderation by Maarfy (so yell at him if something breaks, not Erik).

This patch grants the user two styles of wallclimb/walljump mechanics, controlled with one easy-to-change define. If set to emulate Specter Knight-style wallclimbing, the player is able to attach to and automatically climb up a wall for a configurable amount of time. If time runs out, the player falls off, and if the player presses B, he can kick off the wall.

If set to normal wallclimbing, the player may attach to the wall indefinitely, and is able to climb up and down at will. Pressing B will kick off of the wall, and pressing B while holding Down will allow the player to simply drop off.

Read the patch itself for a list of known bugs, the most serious of which (arguably) being very poor chemistry with solid sprites. UberASM version is available here, though note it still requires a helper patch.

Also note that this patch overwrites part of the free-roaming debug routine.

Good patch, but big Mario's climbing animation is a bit weird.

how can you make it so the time it takes for him to climb lasts 30 seconds? i am beyond confused trying to fix the asm patch to make it so.

Tested with: Asar 1.71, SA-1 1.31, ZMZ 1.08, LM 3.03

Moderated along the corresponding UberASM code. Worked fine, at least to me. Accepted.

note that you can't duck on iggy/larry's plataform because mario goes nuts on that level mode when ducking

Works quite well and is fun to build levels around.

I have noticed however if you duck on vanilla platforms like the Grey Falling ones / Turn Block Bridges the player will freak out and start moving quickly in a direction which seems like a small glitch.

Seems to work. Also have added fastROM support.

There are two things which should be taken into consideration: The first one is that it's easy to exploit the wall climb because you can gain more height if jump at the highest point and reattach to the wall. The second one is that you can dispatch from a left wall if you press right but can't do the same if you climb a right wall (i.e. pressing left doesn't work).
Also, this patch simply requires a place to run the code at any time so the main code can be turned into an UberASM code and can cause redundant incompatibility with a couple patches (currently, it hijacks $00A2D8 which also is used in a couple patches like Yoshifanatic's Vertical Camera Panning) ‒ the other additional hijacks are necessary, though. It also disables free roaming mode due to the additional hijack for the $77 backup.

How do you have blocks that the player cannot climb on?
