Details for Bounce Block Underwater Push
SMW Patches - Bounce Block Underwater Push Link - Show random
File Name: Bounce Block Underwater Push
Authors: MarioFanGamer
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: Normally, bounce blocks such as note blocks or ?-block don't push the player downwards underwater. This patch makes it so that when you're underwater and swimming with an item, you get pushed downwards a little like in Super Mario Maker.

Note that it is not compatible with Press X to Item Swim while patches like All Switch Blocks Have Powerups requires you to adjust some settings. It also doesn't affect custom blocks such as these either.

Techinically, forcing the player downwards so he 1-frame hits the block is not new. Things like non-bouncing block switches used in old hacks use this to prevent 2-4 frame hit blocks by simply having the MarioBelow set his Y speed to #$80.

A simple patch that adds a little organic touch to water movement, very nice!

Two notes:

1.) The swimming physics routine runs after this code, and thus imposes a maximum downward speed of #$10; any !PushSpeed settings greater than #$10 will be capped at this value.

2.) If the patch is set to play a sound effect in bank $1DF9, it will overwrite the "hit head" sound that normally plays when bumping the bottom of a block. If set to any sound effect in $1DFC, it will be overwritten by the normal sounds made by item/coin containing blocks.

Tested with Asar 1.81, Lunar Magic 3.31, SA-1 1.40, Snes9x 1.59.2.

I just have updated the patch where I also have added a bounce for the invisible blocks.

This also happens in NSMB too. I think this is also good for on/off switches because without this patch, the player carrying a sprite would be hitting the switch repeatedly and rapidly, causing a 50% chance it would be in the undesired state.
