Yeah okay, fair enough.
But having the names of the creators, in a multi-creator hack, would be really cool, as not alot of people would take the time to open up a level list. It's kinda an extra head nod to all the collaborators. I think anyway lol
My vote is for this, yo.

My counter argument is that I've seen hacks and other fan games with level author names like that and it really, really looks cheap.

I can't see what would look cheap about
Level Name
Author Name
and your argument isn't really an argument, so...

I'm not sure how many people saw it, but I posted for it in the sprite thread; my problem with Sumo Bros. and the flames not working correctly in a level.

...Now, Roy actually made a patch that fixes it, can I request that it is added to the ROM?
It has not been completely tested yet (I think), but he's not expecting any drawbacks.

dude, i know this patch may fix your level, but the patch will probably only be inserted if its compatible with the rest of the rom

I know that it will only be inserted if it works with everything else (and I don't see why it wouldn't), but I don't know what half of the stuff in the base rom is and all, and I figured posting it here would at least make people see it and if one of the leaders can test it or anything, it could be inserted I guess?

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

I was wondering if this patch can be added. Its the 'Spike Swim' patch by Alcaro which removes the glitchy Mario state when he hits a spike while swimming. Its absolutely unnecessary but adds a little bit of extra polish to the hack. I have run into this glitch issue a few times with the level I'm designing. I know its a bit late and as I said, its not necessary for the hack or the level but I would appreciate it. Thanks!

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

I may as well ask this before I end up submitting my level for submission, but will there be a chance of Ice Man's HDMA fix patch getting applied to the rom to fix HDMA layer priorities with various sprites? I have this problem in one of my own levels, and I know for certain the patch does indeed fix this. Don't know if anyone else uses colour math with their HDMA (similar to myself), but it might be handy for those that do.

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

Is it allowed to use Terra Stripe for creation of a custom Layer 3 image for one of my sublevels? It is mostly for aestethics so not necessary at all, but I would like to make use of it. I tried to look up any posts on the forum about it, but I couldn't find any confirmation / rejection regarding that topic...

Actually, allowing Tileset C to use scrolling Fog instead of the Beta Cage would work out for me, othewise. I dunno if it is possible to claim such a thing, but it's not like someone is going to use the garbled beta cage. Basically, for the latter only (PC) 0021AE needs to be 0x81 and (PC) 029272 needs to become 0xDE,0x95,0x05 and presto; Correctly working fog in Tileset C. It's hard to believe Lunar magic can't do this already. It was easier than I thought.

I wanted to insert a song but it didn't work then end.

I'm not sure if it's cause the song just sucks or I used a wrong addmusic or what. Either way you should know that the addmusic link doesn't work.

Edit: Turns out i had an older version of addmusic (I guess?)

I'm not sure as to who's putting in these patches, but if more then one person comes forward, requesting the same patches be put in, I don't think there should be a problem with putting them in...
Who ever is doing that lol

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

The problem is if the patches are compatible with what we already have, which needs to be tested. However in most cases patches should work with eachother.

I'll throw my vote for the Multiple Midway Patch, again.

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

I don't see a problem with having that patch, it's just then people might be inclined to be making HUGE levels, because, well, Raocow will be playing it.
But it would be handy in those cases that the level is particularly hard, or just naturally long.
I don't see a problem with it.

### Re: Patches, Tools, and Hex Edits

The patch really should only be used for before a boss, or if the secret exit is a full-on split path. If a level is too long it people should be asked to shorten it a bit during testing/clearing.

I only want it for its ability to make you start in whatever sublevel you want after getting the midpoint.

Was the remapping option for the classic piranha plant fix enabled? I noticed that the upside down piranha plants were still using SP4, so changing them to SP2 in the patch will remap them to SP2 and make them global.

I'm just checking in case I mess something up with my ROM - the more.bin thing is already included in the latest version, right?

### Re: Patch Discussion: Request, discussion, and general

An important notice: When I went back to testing stuff with Pily I noticed my global subroutines were off with the patch version which I have now backed up around here which means the current one I have out there for everyone is old.

Luckily I've managed to find the newer one but I'm going to go over a few things before doing anything else.

edit: well frick I just overwrote my levelcode.asm for Pily with something else. I hope the back up at my dad's is still good.

edit 2: Nevermind, things are all fine now.

Most updated version of compilation patch uploaded to file bin on the wiki.

Unless someone made changes to what I've had out there. If so we'd probably still need to revert to this and re-add changes.

Remember when I sent you guys a version of the patch but said I'm not sure if it's really my most updated version?

Not sure what's happened with that since then.
