Details for Message Box Expansion
SMW Patches - Message Box Expansion Link - Show random
File Name: Message Box Expansion
Version History: View
Authors: WhiteYoshiEgg
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: This patch implements a new message box system that allows for messages of 260 characters (almost twice the original length). It also makes it possible to use more than two different messages per (trans)level, giving each screen its own message settings.

README.txt and HOW_TO_USE.txt will probably answer any question you may have, so give it a read.

(July 7, 2018: Made switch palace messages work, tweaked the message system to be more space-efficient, and made other minor improvements.)
(July 7, 2019: Fixed broken SA-1 compatibility and added support for LM 3's new level sizes.)

requires changes to work with sa-1 pack 1.35+ (dma remap conflict)

smart detection of sa-1 pack is needed to automatically define the hdma channel used, check sa-1's file in order to know how to detect newer versions of sa-1 (detect v1.40 instead of v1.35 btw)

how do I make the default message not show up on any already written messages in the overworld with this patch?

It would have been more perfect if could use a generic message box or use multiple palettes.

Tested with Asar v1.71, Lunar Magic 3.04, SA-1 Pack v1.32, Snes9x v1.55. Works just fine.

ayy, it's nice to see this working on latest LM and SA-1

it's a shame that implementing this super cool patch inside the Sprite Message Box patch would be a nightmare (at least for me)
