Are you talking about this one?

I am in the dungeon of the castle. I know there is a hidden path from outside of the castle to the garden inside.

If so:

yes that is the one. I can't stand this text constantly appearing. my open world hack will remove extraneous text. are there other addresses listed with disabling text?

Yes, there are some other addresses like removing the text: "You are out of magic, watch your magic meter" etc.

you need to use a hex editor to change it. so far I found no adverse effect from it. the text ends once you enter the tunnel.

Yes you can delete the text, but the (empty) message will still pop up. If you want it not to appear, you need to do a hex edit.

I never deleted an entire text but one thing about save states is that it can mess up the text.

Yeah, that can make testing that much more annoying. There is an easy way to test text though.

1) Make a ROM that is only for testing.
2) Write your text in slot #31 of the monologue.
3) Open the ROM in an emulator, start a new game and the text you are testing will be the first text displayed.

the scrambled text in the save state also messes up the fairy fountain. strangely it only happens when using save state and not an srm file.

I guess it loads something important for the text (pointers?) as soon as you start a play session. If you then make changes to the text, the save state has data that is no longer accurate.

Sure. The text pointers when a sentence is about to start are written to ram during rom booting. When you edit the text the pointers are moved (of course, because the length of the phrases vary). So if you load a zst you have the old pointers but with a new text, which obviously bugs.
Only way to avoid this is to use the srm.

I use the zst when playtesting the hacks. the srm is mainly what I use when starting a file.
