Version History: View
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: No
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: Unlike Iceguy's patch, this patch remove several stuff that he left out:

-forgot to remove score sprites that appear when you hurt/kill enemies.

-the last "0" on the status bar.

-not to store tile $FC every frame, this is noticeable if you put custom counters on the space where the score was.

This means you don't have to use external tools to remove all score-related stuff in the game, this patch does it all for you.

credit goes to me and WhiteYoshiEgg (he made the disable score sprite code), and yes, I got his permission:

2020-01-24 update:
Fixed a rather small oversight that the score code will STILL write blank tiles if the first n tiles/bytes at $0F29-$0F2E contains the value #$00 (which that displays the "0" graphic). This is because the people who wrote at $008EDB ($008E1A on the ROM map section) forgot to double-check the code just after $008EDB and $008F09 that checks the digit tiles, from left to right, if there is a leading 0, replace it with #$FC.

Seems to conflict with PIXI 1.40, maybe cause PIXI 1.40 does score sprites now.

It does; I just submitted an update to this that should correct the problem.

No idea why, but simply using PIXI with this patch makes the score sprites reappear for me. :(

Tested with Asar v1.71, BSNES v87 (BizHawk), LM 3.11, SA-1 v1.32.
Works as intended, accepted.
I don't know a good name. From older version: GHB Disable score Link
Works great.

Tested with Asar v1.71, SNES9x v1.58, in both normal and SA-1 ROMs.

No issues were found, so it's accepted.

Moderated with:
  • Asar 1.60
  • SA-1 Pack (dunno which version)
  • SNES9x

Changes made:
  • Added SA-1 support
  • Added way to revert changes
  • (The biggest change) Replaced the image with IMO a better representation (old image showed a stomped Koopa and showed ZSNES/ZMZ text).

Its usage and my opinion is already written in the description i.e. the score sprites actually don't spawn unlike in your averidge disable score.

Good patch, but I recommend on next time looking for a better solution for the drum roll sound effect. Pretty sure you can make it only play when there's bonus stars. Also next time you add a if on asar with a option, be sure to add a reverse code too, in case the user don't like the drum roll off option. Something like:

if !drumroll = 0
org $05CDE4		;\remove drumroll sfx (even if you get bonus stars, sorry).
	db $00		;|
org $05CF49		;|
	db $00		;/
*insert restore code here*

But either way, approved.

Rather then removing the score sprite gfx, it instead disable the spawning of the score sprite, giving extra sprite tile gfx space (which can be useful for bosses that uses a very large amount of tiles or other asm).
