This patch replaces SMW's original status bar with a system similar to that of the Donkey Kong Country Returns series. Counters are implemented as sprites that show up only when necessary and slide in and out on their own.
Note that this patch disables the timer, as well as the score and bonus star counters.
Make sure to read the readme for instructions and possible drawbacks!
