Slow Message Box v1.1

SMW Patches → Slow Message Box v1.1

Submission Details

Name: Slow Message Box v1.1
Authors: Lui, Medic
Version History: View
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: Makes message boxes show the message frame by frame instead of all at once. You may skip the wait (makes it load instantly) by pressing START or SELECT by default.

Includes SFX and SFX generation script by Lui37.

Note that by its nature, it is incompatible with most custom message systems, even vanilla-like ones like Sprite Message Box or Inline Layer 3 Messages.

v1.0: Initial release
v1.1: Remoderation update, testing python script with Python 3.9.6 and 3.11.2, fixing Yoshi House and switch messages.

Tested With:
-Lunar Magic 3.40
-Asar 1.91
-bsnes v115
-SA-1 1.40
-Addmusic 1.0.10
-Python 3.11.0
-Python 3.12.4

A couple places were missing |!addr for SA-1 compatibility, I fixed that. I also changed the default SFX because it targeted an invalid sound effect if you didn't use Addmusic.

Yoshi's message and switch palace messages work now. Unfortunately, the switch palace messages don't display palace switch block sprites like the original, it would've been tricky to make them appear one by one. Still, it's a good improvement overall.

It has a bug: When I hit a message box with Yoshi it doesn't show a message, only the black box.

Man, this is really good. Reminds me of those tell-tale games and Pokemon. Also, nice John Cena drawing.

It is a really good patch, however as noted, it fails to work on switch palaces. Not a huge loss though.
