SMW Patches → Layer 2 Ledge Drop Fix

Submission Details

Name: Layer 2 Ledge Drop Fix
Author: mario90
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: Yes
Featured: No
Description: When on layer 2, Mario has a higher Y speed than normal which helps him move smoothly on layer 2 vertically. However, this also make him drop much faster when walking off of layer 2 ground rather than jumping off. This patch fixes that.

This reminds me some sprites, more specifically mushroom sprites affected by gravity to instantly fall down ledges (not a layer 2 issues, happens on ANY ledges on ANY layer). I believed it's due to its Y speed in its code forgetting to zero out ($AA,x) when $1588,x's bit 2 (down bit) is set

Oh awesome work — had always thought this would be a nice fix!

Actually crashed my rom when I patched it; and I'm guessing it's incompatible with the Layer 2+3 Wallrun Triangle Fix, because of the mutual modification of $00EE35.

Ah, yes, this also happens on SMA2, and the fact you can't run over 1-tile gaps.
