Congratulations on this beta, it's a relieve that it is in this stage after all your hard work! Very Happy

I hope though, that a couple of playtesters is found, because... well, PW is PW Sad Please do not be too disappointed if less people are willing to playtest as you expect.
Maybe it is less deterrent if PM is proven to be compatible as well?

As I've said before, Remodel will be compatible once the room edits are commented out. I've been a real stickler for making sure all of my edits are done in asm, except for the minor graphics edits, but those are also compatible, you just need to use zcompress to copy them over, so it's REALLY easy to comment out things that should be omitted. I even put the room edits in a separate file so it's just a single include statement that needs to be removed.

I'm dealing with final examinations at university until Dec. 9th. Afterwards I'll be able to give this some attention. There isn't any mention here of the issue regarding heart pieces in the waterfall cave. Am I to assume this has been previously explained or fixed and is no longer an issue?

The waterfall cave was already addressed in v1.1 by removing the second piece. There is only one piece now.

It's funny you mention the mothula stop firing glitch, the way I fixed it in conker is replace that attack with something more sinister.

But it's quite easy to fix (without replacing the attack), let me dig up that asm and get back to you.

EDIT - straight from the dev threads - this will fix the mothula shooting:
Bug #1: Mothula stops shooting after a while.
$9E/C094 22 5D F6 9D -> EA EA EA EA

The reason - a sprite is spawned while battling mothula in the original lttp - the sprite in question is the moving spike in the boss room. As spikes and moving floors don't exist in most hacks for mothula boss rooms, the sprite is spawned and holds a sprite slot in use. Once the sprite slots are maxed out, no more sprites can be spawned and thus the mothula attack doesn't work.

That mothula is nothing I need to add to my native bug fix collection then I think if spikes need to be absent... however, what that cane somaria underflow?
Is it something I should add and if yes, what's the problem and fix?

The cane of somaria patch is already one of your native fixes, Conn. Maybe I described it poorly?

Also, Euclid thanks! You don't happen to have a fix for king helmasaur glitching out when placed in a large room, do you? It seems like his position calculations were hard coded for a small 1/4 room so when he's placed in a large room like Farore's Isle, the metasprite splits into pieces and he can do things like hit you with his tail when you're nowhere near him. Basically I think he doesn't handle being off-screen and his position just wraps around instead.

I don't think this is so easily solvable qwerty (I might be wrong). Since the Helmasaur by default can not be in a big room (the same for all bosses, except Moldorm).

I solved this in the Remodel, by changing the room to small one

I dunno if you can play with these values to fix your problem. This is meant when he's going out of bounds in a small room through, so I have no idea if bigger rooms can handle this code.

Have you tried using one of the 1/4 styled "rooms", but then drawing over it with other tiles to make it a big room? It may be basing these calculations off of the room layout (the simple way of doing it), rather than loading the coordinates, shapes and sizes of the walls (the more complicated way of doing it). I would bet that the programmers took the simple route. If so, you could lead it to believe it was in a small room while it is actually not.

Possibly, but I guess it would depend on how your room is shaped (whether it becomes an issue or not) and what other things you may be able to configure.

Unfortunately not, its not bounds checking either so don't bother applying that patch.

i wonder if any of this wackiness with Helmasaur King is related to a smaller issue i encountered in vanilla.  when you hit him with the hammer, depending on where the strike is at and possibly other factors, the collision might be drawn nowhere near the point of impact:
http://assassin17.brinkster.net/Helm000.png

EDIT: that's when hitting his feet.  it's also possible to get no visible collision circle (such as when hitting the very bottom center of his mask), even though Link is being knocked back.  a theory i read on the graphic's absence is that the game might be trying to draw it further inside a wall.

Found a new typo to fix. Shiek->Sheik in the dungeon name overlay. I need to check if it needs to be replaced in any other in-game text as well.

Well, I just finished my playthrough. Definitely a few fixes left to make, but all in all I feel pretty good about it.

I watched just the first part of these series and I have to admit that you did some nice work here.

Funny how just some small changes can make a big difference. The punch stun weapon works great. I guess I didn't think conn's codes were going to be this useful.

The only real problem is that the whole game really needs to be redesigned. But with these changes the current game is much more playable.

Did you ever manage to fix that one screen in the snow world where if you scroll to the right the game goes into an infinite scrolling loop?

Yeah, the punch to stun was kind of the lightbulb moment when the whole project changed from "I want to add these cool features" to "this really does significantly change the game" which led to some other changes like disabling bomb damage, which has a similar effect in the Halls of Pain and a few other places. Also, fixing the boomerang means you don't have to choose to skip the blue one and make the first dungeon mini boss 3x harder if you want the red one. Lots of stuff like that, without resorting to directly modifying enemy health or other more direct ways you might think of making things "easier". However, I'm not going to redesign the dungeons. Ever. Period. I know how much work that would be and there is no chance I'll ever do it. I made a conscious choice not to make ANY dungeon edits, and I *almost* managed to stick to that.

The church exterior is fixed though, yes. Unfinished photo here, but you get the idea: https://board.byuu.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1254&start=10#p30651

I couldn't check the photo because I had to log in. I couldn't log in because the board didn't give me the option.

Anyway, you seem like you've put a bit of work into this so some time in the near future I'll give this game another chance. Maybe this time will be the one.
