SMB3 Screen Scrolling Pipes 4.0.2

SMW Blocks → SMB3 Screen Scrolling Pipes 4.0.2

Submission Details

Name: SMB3 Screen Scrolling Pipes 4.0.2
Author: HammerBrother
Added:
Version History: View
Act As: 130
Includes GFX: Yes
Description: See tutorial here. The blocks section has a small 1MIB limit preventing me from submitting this as a whole.

FuSoYa's pipes patch wasn't compatible with Gopher Popcorn Stew, so I uploaded my own. Even if it's updated to work with GPS, it is buggy.

These pipes, when entered, will cause mario to travel through pipes within the same level rather than refreshing the screen, useful for maze levels for those who refuses to use screen exits (which is a pain).

Whats best is that:

-unlike wiiqwertyuiop's, this centers the player correctly and is impossible to make the pipes play a "pipe sfx" multiple times for entering/exitng the pipe.

-there are several (more like countless) bugs in mikeyK's pipes (outdated) ranging from passable corners, to horizontal pipe caps that you can enter randomly not working should there be a level time limit, all the way to ceiling slopes teleporting mario (or killing him based on y position).

-now there are pipe turn-corners for mini pipes!!

-the best thing ever about this is that GPS has a "block to insert" list, due to having multiple blocks in this package, It made it easier for inserting all the blocks at once just by copying what's in "pipe_tiles_list.asm" and pasting it in "list.txt". THANK GOD that was faster than tedious editing whats in "edit block database" of btsd and that btsd insert the blocks one by one at a time.

I couldn't fit the description in the print command (they are often long; they would overwrite descriptions of other blocks), but I made a .map16 so its easier to understand.

Notes:
-If there are at least 2 sprites on screen, and mairo enters a pipe, mario will partially disappear as he enters a pipe, you should download the "no more sprite tiles limit" to prevent that.

-If you have a low-gravity generator that DEC $7E:007D (mario's Y speed), make sure that you add a check that if $7E:009D is nonzero, or the low nibble (low 4 bits, %----XXXX) of a ram address defined "!pipe_dir" is non-zero, then skip/return, because mario will then rise up slowly while traveling through horizontal pipes. You absolutely don't want to touch his physics while inside pipes.

You can now use these pipes in layer 3 tides.

Version 4.0.0 updates:
-Added screen scrolling *warp* pipes
-Cap cannons
-Several bug fixes
-Blocks rearranged
-Vertical pipes (normal-size) enterable-width can now be customized
v4.0.1:
-Fixed a potential issue where setting $13FB (often set by yoshi growing animation) during pipe transition does not freeze the timer !Freeram_SSP_PipeTmr. Most likely this bug will happen with other ASM resources using $13FB

This earthen pipe block does not work well with the wall kick patch.
Mario will not be able to come out of the earthen pipe and cannot be used together.

As per request by the author, I fixed an error in the description where the low nibble of !pipe_dir needs to be checked, not the address as a whole.

Yeah thanks again for making such an incredible resource, that so many people have gotten so much use out of over the years.

In v4.0.0, I've noticed that there are a few instances where there's particularly bad sprite lag after patching the SSP fixes patch in combination with No More Sprite Tile Limits in particular (v1.2.1, the latest stable version).

I patched them to a clean rom — the only other modification being FastROM — and had heavy slowdown while there were 4+ sprites on-screen in two different scenarios: in an interactable layer 2 level I made, and at that long line of koopas at the beginning of vanilla level 106. (Both scenarios prominently involved shells, for what it's worth. Also, the lag in the layer 2 level was removed when changing it into a normal mode 00 level.)

I tested these scenarios with a number of other patch combinations, too. No More Sprite Tile Limits on its own had no effect here. NMSTL + frame rule patch produced negligible lag; and the SSP patch + frame rule patch had a bit more lag. But it was only the specific combo of the SSP patch with No More Sprite Tile Limits that can really produce severe lag here.

I know that using both patches just increases the amount of processing in general; but I figured I'd still bring it to your attention, on the chance that you can think of anything that might help the two patches co-exist a bit better in situations like these. (I also have some videos I made that show the exact setups with the lag, too, if you'd like to take a look.) Thanks a lot!

Hey! Thank you for all of your continued work for these pipes!

I did want to let you know about an issue with the fixes patch. So there is an extra NOP that appears in the hijack at $01A14D. One NOP overwrites the LDA portion of LDA $1A that is at $01A152 which causes glitches when stunning a mecha-koopa if said patch is applied. I just wanted to let you know about the issue!

Thanks for all of your hard work with these pipes!

Amazing stuff — just an enormous amount of effort (and prodigious skill).

On a super minor note: I'm using v2 of the blocks/tiles, and it looks like 4C0 and 4C1 — two of the DragPlayer.asm tiles — weren't assigned GFX, and appear as untextured tiles. You can simply copy over tiles 440 and 452 for them, respectively.

[Edit:] I'm deleting everything else I had written after this. Those blocks originally weren't working for me at all, but I didn't realize there was a level table in SSPDragMarioMode.asm; and I had saved the demonstration level to a level number other than 105. (The graphics issue was just a coincidence.)

Zeproide Did you insert the uberasm code via uberasm tool? That is the code that handles the pipe state of the player. That is the code meant to run every frame (runs the main if the pipe state is nonzero).

(the reason why the player goes through everything is because fixes.asm modifies a lot of the physics that may cause issues with the player's interaction with objects and sprites. In this case, it skips code that would eject the player out of blocks (such as moving him slowly to the left when clipped into it), this is to prevent possible minor bug where the player enters a bottom vertical small pipe cap being 1 pixel off)

Pixi 1.2.15 + Pinkie the Carriable Triangle
SA-1 Pack 1.32 (also tested without)
Snes9x 1.60

What a release! These pipes are quite useful and really easy to place within the level. After testing out all of the different features and trying different combinations of pipes, carriable sprites, yoshi, and powerups, everything seems to work as intended, with only two minor things to note. Regardless, this pack is accepted.
For whatever reason, if Yoshi is standing somewhere on screen and you enter a pipe (not riding Yoshi), Yoshi will disappear, even with the NMSTL patch. Both on lorom and SA-1. This is an incredibly minor bug and shouldn't be too difficult of a fix. Given how minor it is, this can still be accepted.

I would say, just use the patch (fixes.asm) of this updated version, so far, doesn't have major issues.

This newer version features “2” versions of map16, an old one and a newer version. The newer version features way more blocks (takes up a total of 2 map16 pages), and are rearranged with most duplicates removed to accommodate a ton of blocks.

I realized what the hack is now called, it's Hackers Dreams : Pipe Dream.
HammerBrother Author From older version: SMB3 Screen Scrolling Pipes 4.0.0 Link
In case if you're wondering, the darken pipes indicate “background” pipes, passable tiles that can be used to connect pipes without separating the level (passable but if you're in pipe mode, will interact with them).

This is also useful for kaizo hacks involving the cap cannons, you can design a level in a way that the player cannot use the upwards-facing cap cannons as platforms but as a 1-use launcher the player has to remain in midair most of the time.

Once that gets release, I would. Just that the exiting timers and potentially the centering code may be needed to be modified along with the powerup check (make it so that it forbids small mario (RAM_19=$00)). The last time I tested that, mini mario had the same hitbox as small mario.

If these pipes don't work properly, then it's always a freespace conflict unless you improperly modified the blocks or the UberASM code themselves.

I have been frustrated with these pipes for quite a few months, and I cannot stress the following rule of thumb any further: make sure to edit both copies of the defines file in the correct directories, such as the 'blocks' folder in GPS and the same directory your UberASMTool is in. If you have have a copy of the 'SPP_Defines' folder outside those important directories and you replace the defines file there, then surely you're missing something!

And a high recommendation: use this patch to free up a whopping 16 KB of arbitrary freespace, starting from $7F0000 to $7F3FFF. This freespace will thus be safe to use in the long run. Wish you the best of luck! Your frustration with these pipes should now be put to an end!

I've read your comment regarding the freeram reset issue in retry's comment section. While I'm going to do some small stuff to my patch, for maximum abstraction, I would like to suggest you to modify your part so that the gamemode routine resets those free ram addresses used by pipe when mario's dying ($71 is set to $09). Preferably .ResetStatus could be called (except for STZ $71).
This could also fix the reset issue which could happen when you die in a pipe and use $7Fxxxx as freeram, even if you don't use retry.

in which they flicker really fast when Mario hits some of the turning tiles


Yeah, I've should noted that on the readme about that. It is very likely to see this flicker for sprites larger than 16x16 (for example: the giant koopa), especially for small screen scrolling pipes. The reason for this is that only the player becomes invisible after the entering animation timer hits zero, the carried sprite remains visible and therefore can “poke” outside the pipe.

And also, thank you for testing and reporting.
 Major Flare From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.14 Link
Aside of the Yoshi bug you mentioned, I caught a tiny bug involving sprites carried through the pipes, in which they flicker really fast when Mario hits some of the turning tiles. Other than that, good job fixing your codes. Despite the bugs I mentioned, I'm willing to accept this as they're minor things, and the Yoshi bug was present in the last hosted version. The change is this the "Fixes" patch works now.
HammerBrother Author From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.7 Link
Oh, for the vertical pipes without the middle part, what actually happened is that upon triggering the top caps, the player is teleported downwards so that his timing when he exits isn't off, thankfully this “back-teleporting” isn't too major. I started testing my pipes with the tides and it seems that it doesn't interfere with the pipe traveling, but the water splash graphic happened during the travel, I don't know where is the code that handles the splash sprite when you enter layer 3 tides.
 MarioFanGamer From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.7 Link
For some reason, I had the sentence about the invisible Yoshi unfinished, lol.

I also forgot to write that vertical pipes acts a bit weird if they haven't got a middle part. See the second to last obstacle in the demo level.
HammerBrother Author From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.7 Link
I restore the game, reinstall the pipe thing, and found out that the fireball bug can be reproduced if you have freezing disabled.

For the fireball part, I believed the error is caused by this on the uberasm library code (so far, mario actually shoots fireballs while inside the pipe, it maybe a frame-perfect timing to exit the pipe while no fireballs are present on the two slots):
Code
	..ForceControlsSetAndClear
	LDX #$01				;\>Start loop count
	
	...Loop					;|
	LDA $15,x				;|
	ORA SSP_CarryControlsForceSet,y		;|>Force X and Y on controller to be set when carrying sprites.
	AND SSP_CarryControlsForceClear,y	;|>Clear out other than XY and START.
	STA $15,x				;|
	DEX					;|
	BPL ...Loop				;/


Noticed that this sets and clears both $15 and $16. $16 is used for the cape and fireball action. This glitch even happens on cape (it only plays the SFX).

I really don't know how yoshi becomes invisible when setting $78, but when yoshi crouches and faces the screen when entering screen scrolling pipes when you set the value on $7E1419, he still does that even if the player is not mounted on him. This works even on the original game with its exit-enabled pipes. That RAM is used because that also controls how you carry sprites through pipes.
 MarioFanGamer From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.7 Link
Skipped over most of the blocks, lol. They're pretty similar and most of them already but okay. Can't say the same for the UberASM code (which is practically or actually rewritten).

The new addition with the controllable turn corners makes designing the pipes more interesting. It also is a bit similar to FuSoYa's two-way pipes except more flexible and maybe even easier to understand.

The only problem is that Fire Mario drops a fireballs when exiting a pipe (and it even fries any sprite because Mario is considered in the pipe state). The invisible Yoshi glitch also is something to consider (it wouldn't have been as bad if cape and Yoshi weren't aren't affected by the same invisible bit). Maybe adding an option to turn Mario temporarily small à la FuSoYa to fix this problem?
The option to prevent Yoshi entering the pipe also would be nice.

Mod's note: The patch does what it's supposed to do and seems to do so quite reliably. I tested all of the different pipe combinations in different situations and couldn't find any major problems. The included demonstration level certainly helped with testing, so thanks for that. If you want to use these pipes in your hack, make sure to read readme.txt carefully, as the setup is quite involved.

While I couldn't find any major problems that were severe enough to justify rejection of this submission, I did at least find two minor problems that should be taken a look at whenever considering an update for the pipes.

For the first problem: When entering horizontal pipes, Mario never seemed to play his proper "walking into pipe" animation, unless currently riding Yoshi. He just slides into the pipes. Certainly not a big deal, but for more authenticity, you should consider adding this animation in a future update.

For the second problem: The code is a bit unoptimized in a few places. For example, I found code like this in multiple locations:

Code
	LDA !Freeram_PipeDir	;\set pose according to direction.
	CMP #$01		;|\Vertical direction
	BEQ ....Vert		;||
	CMP #$03		;||
	BEQ ....Vert		;||
	CMP #$05		;||
	BEQ ....Vert		;||
	CMP #$07		;||
	BEQ ....Vert		;|/
	CMP #$02		;|\Horizontal direction
	BEQ ....Horiz		;||
	CMP #$04		;||
	BEQ ....Horiz		;||
	CMP #$06		;||
	BEQ ....Horiz		;||
	CMP #$08		;||
	BEQ ....Horiz		;//


Consider rewriting the code like this to save cycles and bytes:

Code
	LDA !Freeram_PipeDir
	AND #$01
	BEQ ....Horiz

....Vert
	; [...]

....Horiz
	; [...]


That being said, none of these problems affects functionality or is a game breaker in my books, that's why I went ahead and accepted the submission, anyways.

I got an error about an "unknown macro" which was %SmallMarioHitbox.
Queman From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link
Hmm, could you create a four-way intersection block? That would be amazing. Perhaps 3-way intersections could be supported with controller input to change direction. Maybe with the use of a sprite you could force a direction change, or lack thereof depending on which way you came. So Mario could go down the pipe, get redirected to a P-Switch Dispenser room on the left, then going back in the pipe from the Switch room he would be directed the rest of the way down. You could have different redirects for each direction, based on what sprite data was set.

You probably forgot to remove the INC $19 code in the test files of uberasm tools. Also be careful that you don't reuse RAM that is currently used by non-screen scrolling pipes related code.
Luigi_master1 From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link
I still can't figure out how to use these, every time I try the horizontal pipes work fine, but in level 105 Mario keeps flashing through different invalid powerup states (which means glitched palette), and the pipes themselves act weird, like if there's a bend the screen scrolls the way Mario entered forever. Might post a gif or a video of it soon.
worldpeace From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link
Thanks for the useful blocks!

I observed that the program bank was not equal to the data bank in routines/SmallBlockHitbox.asm, and the blocks changing the directions didn't work properly. You may want to use LDA.l to access the table (maybe in some other block codes too).

When mario enters or exits from a pipe, sprites(especially ones consisting of multiple tiles) won't be drawn correctly, even with the NMSTL patch. This can be resolved by setting the value of $13F9 to #$02, instead of #$01.

There should be a code somewhere in the springboard, hijack it to check if the pipe freeram is set, if true, don't set those RAMs.
SkywinDragoon From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link
Springboard clears $1471, and $72 at the last moment of jumping.
It will let Mario to enter the pipe, and glitch like below.
I didn't come up with the best solution, but for right now, just add code so pipes will not let Mario in when he has upward speed.

like..
LDA $7D
BMI return
SkywinDragoon From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link

I think I found a bug maybe?
I used one of the old versions so I am not sure.
However, this is fatal, because it causes game crash. (not glitchy but pauses forever)
Could you verify this and possibly fix it please?
Anas From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes 3.2.1 Link
Whoops. Looks like I was mistaken.

Oh great, I was gonna use the SA-1 compatible ver. 3.0.
I'm not gonna use THIS 'cuz you konw. No sa-1 tag, thus no SA-1 usability.

Hi again,

I found another glitch in your scrolling pipes code, and thought you might want to know. The issue occurs when you try to enter a horizontal pipe while standing on any downward-moving sprite platforms. You can enter them if you press jump at the perfect time, but this is rather counter-intuitive and goes against how the vanilla pipes behave.

Thanks again for the cool patch/blocks.


Don't place sprite platform near pipes.

Yay, I don't have to organize stuff in subfolders on my own anymore.
Everything else seems unedited and inserted just fine.

Will convert the blocks Sa-1 if Sa-1 GPS released.
Galeth From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes Link
I tried with FuSoYa's pipes before, but it didn't actually work. I remember that I made something like this just by setting a secondary entrance that leads to the other end of the pipe. Some homemade stuff while waiting for a fixed version of this.
Chillah From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes Link
It's great that these are actually implemented as blocks rather than patches. Also, this is really neat and useful. It would work really nicely for transporting the player across the map easily. Also great for puzzles.

I like the concept of screen scrolling pipes rather than patches.

Hello? I said the uberASM code doesn't seem to work. When I enter it, it just becomes non-solid and play the pipe sound at the same time.

Note that this doesn't work on layer 2 levels.

I can't insert this in my hack. Sure, I can insert the blocks but when I put the code in gamemode_14, save it and insert it, the code doesn't seem to work. Am I supposed to set the gamemode hijack to !false? Cause I really want to use ASM in my hack.

Did you change he freeram in the defs file?
DJfour7 From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes (latest version) Link
I have a problem, when I try to insert the blocks it says "blocks/top_vertical_pipe_cap_L.asm:30: error: Relative branch out of bounds (distance is 137) [BCS return]".

I did not modify that file at all, so I'm just wondering what could be the problem here. (For extra info, this only started happening when I remembered to set the freespace in the uberASM file and the pipe_defs.txt file.)
HammerBrother Author From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes (latest version) Link
@Kaisaan Siddiqui

It should work, if you select freeram that isn't used by other stuff, you should be fine.

@[everyone]

It doesn't need exit tiles in front of the pipe caps, as the caps themselves do the exit timer, that means you can put any tile in front and it won't glitch your pipes.

So now this can work on an unclean rom?

I'm not sure, I tested this on a edited level rom (so LM adds stuff to it).
MarkVD100 From older version: GreenHammerBro's SMB3 screen scrolling pipes (latest version) Link
It looks great, it's kinda hard to use this thing. The readme is too confusing for me.

Also, does this require an unedited ROM to do this?
