This patch allows sprites to use more than a fixed amount of tiles. For all sprite headers. It is enabled in all sprite headers by default.
Same patch used by SA-1. I just converted it to fastROM.
Sprite header 08 has been altered to match sa-1's change to move it's max sprite slot header to 08 - therefore, I'm moving fastROM's max sprite slot header there too (same as 00 or 10). Sprite header 08 is unused in the original game.
DO NOT INSERT THIS WITH SA1, SA1 COMES WITH THIS ALREADY.
I added a few config flags so you can go back to header 10 and make it so it's only enabled in one sprite header.
Now the patch can search 2 additional slots ($34,$30). The Lakitu Cloud reserved slots have been moved to $28,$2C to accomodate this.
Added a compatibility flag that moves the sprite header back to 10.
Added a compatibility flag so that you can disable this patch from working in all sprite headers. Instead it will only be enabled for the configured sprite header.
Ported sa-1 code to fastROM.
Now enabled in all sprite headers.
Changed sprite header 08 to have the same amount of slots as sprite header 10 (or 00), to match sa-1's new max slot header. Sprite header 08 is unused.
I had posted about this on the Discord a while ago, but had forgotten about it; but looks like Yoshi and the Lakitu cloud don't work together (in terms of Yoshi turning invisible), due to some of the sprite slot tweaking that was done for this version.
What does this even do IDK what they mean by "more than a fixed amount of tiles" does that mean you can change the size??
EDIT: I think I found it out I think it's just SA-1 but idk what fastrom means though does it mean you can import it to a modified ROM? Also how the heck do you even apply this?
EDIT 2: Lol I think I had an old version or something IDK It works now
Small update: added 2 more slots to the end of the search ($34,$30) and added screenshot. Nothing revolutionary, but better than leaving them unused. Thanks to Atari2.0 for giving the idea.
I also updated the SA-1 version, which you can get here. This version adds 4 tiles to the search (2 if there's a Lakitu cloud spawned). Patching this will overwrite the one included in the SA-1 patch.
