I have two little questions and hopefully someone could help me out ...
1) I replaced the vanilla status bar with the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Styled Status Bar v1.7 (https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=14775
) and modified it in this way, that only the timer is displayed/drawn. When I play the game the coins are still counted and give me a 1UP after 100 coins.
How can I prevent this, is there a way to disable the coin counter? I looked at the ROM/RAM Map and find something concerning counting coins but I'm not sure how to disable it ... (seems like a simple hex edit could solve the problem?!?)
2) I slowly come to the point to think about how to end my/a hack. I wanted to make some custom credits (a "normal" level, not the vanilla credits) and thought that it would be cool to reset the game (go to the title screen) after the credits finished. Is there a way (sprite/patch/UeberASM/Block) to reset the game?
It would be cool if someone could help me out or maybe has an alternative how to end a hack
