Tip: By pressing Shift while placing event tiles, they will be made "silent" and will not appear until a map transition happens. Always use silent event tiles to draw paths in other maps (i.e. a Vanilla Dome event while the player is on the main map), or glitchy tiles may appear.

@JP32 That will be probably fixed when FuSoYa officially recognizes this patch.

Another note: since the patch moves GFX32/33 away, this probably allows you to dedicate the GFX32/33 displayed by LM for more global animations. So it might be more significant than you think.

This is a lot of RAM šŸ‘€

Tested with: Lunar Magic 3.30, Asar 1.81, SA-1 v1.32, Snes9x 1.60, bsnes+ v04.
While not being very useful for the average user, for those who need more free RAM it's a welcome one. A few notes:
- Make sure to have set at least one ExAnimation in Lunar Magic (and saved afterwards) before patching this (you can remove the ExAnimation afterwards, it's just to make LM apply a hijack).
- As JP32 said, using this will make animation display improperly in LM, since it modifies the animation tables in the ROM. This is annoying to work with, but there's a way to avoid it, by moving the new table in freespace and making the game load from it. You can use this edit to make animation display normally. I couldn't reproduce the bug with exanimations he mentioned, though.
- If you're using the Baby Yoshi or Podoboo disassemblies, you'll need to edit their code a bit to make their gfx work. In the Baby Yoshi, find the line that says "ADC #$8500" and change it to "ADC #$8800". In the Podoboo, find the line that says "LDA #$8600" and change it to "LDA #$8900".
- As a side effect of this patch, the transition from the Nintendo Presents screen to the title screen will be a bit faster (since it doesn't decompress the GFX anymore).

Neat, but it completely fucks up how vanilla animations looks in LM:
In-game everything is as should, but it does make editing levels just tedious:
And it fucked up my exanimation(trigger with on/off):
Looks as it should on LM, but in-game its fucked. I did edit the included graphics files to match my edits I made(the graphics my exanimation uses are in the GFX33.bin).
