Offscreen Indicator

SMW Patches → Offscreen Indicator

Submission Details

Name: Offscreen Indicator
Author: Thomas
Version History: View
Tool: Asar
Requires Free Space: Yes
Bug Fix: No
Featured: No
Description: This will display an 8x8 or 16x16 sprite tile at the top or bottom of the screen at Mario's X position whenever he goes offscreen. This way, the player can tell where he is even though they can't see him.

This update makes it so you can optionally have the marker scale away from the edge of the screen based on how far Mario is offscreen, as well.

This patch will apply the effect to all levels. If you want a per-level solution, use the UberASM version.

The update works well.

Note that the scaling effect can be customized. The update also hides the indicator during Mario's death animation.

Tested with: Lunar Magic 3.40, SA-1 Pack 1.40, Asar 1.81, Snes9x 1.62.3.

Reminds me of the Super Smash Bros. games.

Tested with: Asar 1.71, Lunar Magic 3.20, ZMZ 1.08 and SA-1 1.32.

Accepted. A nifty patch to use, surely.

Converted the UberASM to a patch since, due to technical reasons, the former doesn't work when inserted in gamemode 14.
