Tip: Always double-check which slots the ExGFX you are trying to insert goes to, to make sure you don't get accidental glitched graphics elsewhere.

Reusable Stationary Switch (a lifetime supply of switch presses!)

This is a sprite I made for my own hack that's generic enough to release.

It's a stationary switch that you can press by stepping on it. It's also reusable, which means after it's pressed it'll rise back up so you can press it as often as you want. It comes in two sizes, 16x16 and 32x16, depending on the extra bit.

What the switch does when pressed is up to you! By default it changes the ON/OFF state, but I've also included code for activating a blue or silver P-Switch. And, of course, if you know ASM, you can very easily add in your own custom action.

I could have sworn we already had something like that — there's a block like it, but apparently we don't have it as a sprite? So here you go. (The advantage of this being a sprite is that there's smoother animation and a set amount of waiting time before it becomes repressable again.)

I love how smooth that animation of pressing the switch/the switch raising is. A little odd that there's a 32x16 variant but no 32x32 version. (since it's already based off the switch palace GFX)

Also it might be nice to also have it only raise back up when the P-Switch timer is up, rather than raising as soon as Mario gets off it.

Glad you like it! I wonder why a 32x32 one didn't occur to me (seems pretty obvious in hindsight), but eh, it's already submitted and I guess those two sizes will do.


not too much to say, but this is a nice spice-of-life small sprite to add some extra polish to folks hacks. thanks for releasing it !
Anyone who's already grabbed the zip may want to redownload! (same link)

The included silver P switch routine now turns on-screen sprites into coins like you'd expect, and the switch no longer turn itself into a coin. Thanks to KKevinM for pointing these out and editing the submission!



i've always liked watching your stuff in c3, they always have been really interesting even if it's generic.
