This patch will draw the item box (and optionally the item) using sprite tiles. Useful if you want to get rid of the layer 3 status bar, but still need the item box to work. Check out the readme and asm file for more info (especially if you're using the "Remove Status Bar" patch!).
Requested by Anas.
Definitively a very nice and useful patch to have, considering the item box is one of the few status bar components which can't be just removed without affecting gameplay (except for the timer and Dragon Coins, the rest of the status bar can be moved to a pause menu or the overworld).
Keep in mind that if you want to use Remove Status Bar with it, you must remove the code at $01C540 as otherwise no item will be put into the box. You may want to remove the code $00F5F8 as well if you want to keep the dropped item when hurt mechanic as well.
