This is a cool little patch! It's a simple addition, but it really opens the door to a lot of clever setups.

To clarify just a little bit from the description, the time limit is only applied to clouds that are inserted with extra bit = 1; clouds with extra bit = 0 will still last forever. Note that when a time-limited cloud disappears, it's gone for good, so plan your levels accordingly.

Tested with Asar 1.71, Lunar Magic 3.04, SA-1 1.32, PIXI 1.2.9, Snes9x 1.59.2.

RussianMan already did that; my patch works just fine with his.

Oof, just a few weeks late to add it into my game! Ah well, I found a way to get the lakitu cloud with timer by killing it... but that was exactly what I was looking for before!!
