Goal Type-Dependent Behavior (No Goal Sphere Walk)

SMW Patches → Goal Type-Dependent Behavior (No Goal Sphere Walk)

Submission Details

Name: Goal Type-Dependent Behavior (No Goal Sphere Walk)
Author: Koopster
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: Yes
Featured: No
Description: Essentially a patch that will make the goal sphere always behave as if it were in a vertical level: the "Course Clear!" text will appear instantly, there is no fade and no march - which is more than the usual hex edits do. On the other hand, goal posts will behave correctly in vertical levels (although their usage is no longer recommended - use tall horizontal levels instead!).

I believe this is how Nintendo intended those goals to function, but since the goal sphere has only been used in the only level that ends in a vertical section, it was fine to make it depend on the level type instead.

Tested with:

• Lunar Magic 3.11
• SA-1 Pack v1.32
• Asar v1.71
• Snes9x v1.60

The previous issues have now been fixed and everything works as intended, so, accepted. The hex edit at $00FB5A was unnecessary though, since the original code's "not equal" branch is always taken, so I removed it.

Third time's the charm, as they say.
