Why not just allow it to remain running while in sprite editing mode?

When I bring up the emulator, either it or LM is slightly corrupting some of my coin ExAnimation graphics for some reason.

Doesn't appear for me with the original animations, and I'm too lazy to figure out how the new exanimation system works. Could you give me an IPS?

Sprite editing mode means sprites are moveable.
If LMSW remained running in sprite editing mode, people would expect the sprites in LMSW to move as well.
I can not perform that operation; I'm pretty sure LM can reorder the sprites in its lists, so I can't use that method to connect a sprite in LMSW with a sprite in the ROM. Additionally, some sprites change behaviour when moved (for example green bouncing Koopas). The only solution I saw was reloading them every time, and that's a poor idea to do too often.

Here you go. The level in the video is 108, but it happens in a few other levels as well.
Verified fixed. Looks like I wrote to a null pointer, indexed by a couple of millions. I don't think that write is needed anyways.
Have fun.

SMW’s original exits that lead to any level < 100 get messed up.

For example, when I’m in level 23 and go through the pipe exit to D7, I go to level 1D7 instead. When I actually switch to level D7 and go through the secondary exit back to level 23, I go to level 100 instead.
When I’m in level 10 and take the pipe to level C1, I go to level 1C1 instead. When in level C1 and I take the secondary exit back to level 10, I go to level 11F instead.

However, it only seems to affect SMW’s original exits. When I place an exit to level 10 in any level (regardless of whether < 100 or > 100) it always leads to level 10.

Same happens to me, as far as I can tell it will always do that till you edit the level and save it, then it'll go to the proper sublevel

...eh, whoops. I set that variable at wrong place.
I'll fix it in the next release. Since it only affects unedited levels, I don't consider it very important.

Well, there is a solution for that bit. LM would have to assign each sprite in the list a unique ID, and supply the ID list to the DLL along with the regular sprite level list. Then when something is changed, LM would supply both lists again and it'd be possible for the DLL to compare the current ID list against the previous list to work out which sprite has gone where in the main sprite list (missing ID=sprite deleted, new ID=new sprite, matching ID=can compare to sprite from previous list to check changes).

There's still the changing behavior though.


But anyway, I think the current "pause to edit sprites, then reinit them when done" method works pretty well.
It's an interesting idea, but it doesn't solve the problem with sprites changing behaviour if moved. Reloading only one sprite would desync them and make the ASM codes more annoying.
Another problem is that LMSW usually isn't transparent, which makes it hard to find any sprites behind the LMSW window. Since LMSW is what it is, all sprites you're likely to want to poke at are in exactly that blind spot.

I know it's possible for there to be sprites that weren't there when the level loaded (anything that comes from a generator, or from another sprite like Lakitu's spinies)...

Is it possible for any sprites currently in one of the twelve sprite slots to remain in place (and be treated as if they were from a generator), and any sprites that would appear on-screen not be loaded when you resume? I know that could result in duplicate sprites (and force you to scroll any newly placed sprites off-screen before they'll appear), but it's better than sprites spontaneously warping on top of you or to the other side of the level, in my opinion.

Sure, why not? Have fun.
Technical information for FuSoYa: I also added EXPORT int LMSW_ApiVersion() { return 1; } to this version of LMSW. The point of this should be obvious.

Would it be feasible to add a feature which could teleport Mario to an arbitrary location in the level? It would certainly be useful when testing a specific area of a long, difficult level.

--------------------
Mario has been movable since LM 1.63, and probably even longer. Just remember to save before opening LMSW (a limit in our communication).
If you want Mario movable with the mouse, it's on FuSoYa's to-do list. I can't do anything about it.

This will help me out sooo much I'm just sad it has no game-pad support, but I hope that will be fixed in the future!

Finally updated it (I had the first release all this time :3)
The speed is amazing now, so it's finally useful to me thank you! x
Why does every time a muncher appear when I turn on the emulator from LM?

Wow, that's a lot of babble about gamepads.
I don't have any gamepads, and I'd prefer not releasing untested code. Just use joy2key.

Yeah, snes9x is faster than bsnes, and with all the RAM pokery I'm doing, I saw no valid reason to promote emulator accuracy in this context.

floating muncheeeeers~

It's controlled by the :) switch in lmsw.cfg. It won't get saved to anywhere.
