Try it again, qwerty, I've set it to public.

Puzzle, so it is like this because of the way the teleporters were placed? That's a curious one.

It's because of how they were placed, and because of how the game was coded, which was only designed to support specific placements.

Puzzledude wrote:Regarding the Ice beach jumping problem. This is solvable: the game for some reason now assumes the ice can not be jumped on (for instance as you must not land on a stone or bush). So the ice has the wrong tile property/type.

I'm curious if that is (at least one of) the differences between tile type 14 and type 15.  Both seem to be valid for icy floors, but MoN's disassembly has a note about not really knowing what type 14 was for.  All of the indoor icy tiles are type 15, but the overworld ones are 14.  I'm going to try converting them to type 15 and see if that makes any difference.

Edit: Nope, type 15 has the same result.

Edit 2: You're definitely right about the block type though, changing that specific map16 block to type 0 fixes the jumping bug. I'll play around with other block types and see if I can find one that works properly.

I think I am one key short in the Parallel Tower and I think the one missing key is in the Light World. How screwed am I?

Well, indoors at least, it's totally possible to jump from a ledge onto ice, Ruto's Fortress has at least one such ledge. You're right about aLttP not having any overworld ice tiles. If nothing else, I can either fence off the ledge, or just extend the non-icy ground patch below the ledge to match the right-hand side. I'll play around with the tile types first though.

You can see the additional sprite is actually a completely separate sprite on the far right column, 3rd and 4th rows, but it acts like it's part of the skull sprite, or is "stuck" to the bottom of it, the end result looks like a glitchy shadow.  Any ideas? Ohmygod

I've confirmed it with the original v1.1 ROM as well, so it's not my doing.

I figured this one out.  If you look in the Compendium doc at sprites #D3 and #D4, you can see that the skull jaw is located in the very bottom-left corner of the gfx set, which is almost identical between the two sets, except it looks like one is for the light world and one is for the dark world (?)  The set with the bomb starts at 03A000 in YY-CHR, and the set with the jaw starts at 03F000. I'm going to try reverting the gfx back to the jaw at 03F000 and then try and trigger a hidden bomb to see if they show up correctly or not.  Is it at all possible to override the RNG to make hidden bombs show up more frequently, or even to guarantee them?

Bummer, it does break the ground bombs.  The question now is, do the ground bombs actually occur in the dark world?  I can look through HM to see if there are any manually placed (which is what I did here to test), however, I need to figure out where the random placement is done when cutting grass/bushes to see if they are allowed in the dark/icy world.  If not, great, but if they are, the solution is to fix the gfx so that the skull jaw is loaded, and then remove them from the icy world "prize packs" or whatever they're called.  Basically, ground bombs and "alive rocks" can't coexist.

New idea:  I didn't realize that there was a hole under a grave in the light world cemetery.  Currently, it drops you into a room with a single fairy, then you exit into the cave in the northeast corner of the cemetery, with 3 more fairies that you can reach just by entering that cave.  That's kind of a useless room. I think I'd like to repurpose that hole to drop you into the church basement, like in the original aLttP, which would allow you to go back for the boomerang in case you missed it the first time through.  I'll have to slightly rework the original cave in HM so there isn't a door on the ledge that you can no longer reach, but I think it's a good idea.

fun fact: a career test taken in junior high school said i'd become a landscape architect.  mowing my parents' lawn was the closest i'd come until these documents.

That is 100% exactly what I needed.  According to that, the tables I need are at 1A/FBBB for the light world and 1A/FBC3 for the dark world, which, by default, says that the ground bomb is NOT an option for random selection in the dark world.  I just need to check that it is still true in PW, and verify that no ground bombs are manually placed in the icy world, and I can safely make the gfx change.  At least, I think so...

Yeah, I'm aware of those, but have no idea what's causing them. Those have been there since v1.0.

On the bright side, I managed to change the cemetery hole to drop you into the church basement, so you can go back and retrieve the first boomerang if you missed it.  Because of the change I made to fix the red boomerang turning into 300 rupees, if you miss it the first time through, you get the blue boomerang in the icy world instead, then when you go back, you'll get the red.  This way you can always get the red one even if you miss it the first time around.

In doing so, I discovered the cause of the previously mentioned bug where getting picked up by the wallmaster in Din's Catacombs would cause the screen to go dark.  Basically, the game just isn't designed to allow you to fall into dark rooms with the lantern overlay.  There's a bug that enables and then immediately disables that overlay in the "fall into a hole dungeon entrance" subroutine.  Getting picked up by a wallmaster calls that subroutine for the "dropping you at the entrance" animation.  Fixing that bug causes a new minor bug where the overlay isn't in the right position for a short moment right as the room loads, but that's better than what it was.  Maybe I'll bother to fix it, probably I won't.  I'll need to do another full playthrough to be sure it doesn't cause any side effects, but I don't think it will.

As an extra, I can't even fall on that hole.

EDIT: ...AAAAAAND I can go through the hole now that I defeated the boss on the room beside it.

Yeah, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I can't view FB videos on mobile, so I wasn't sure if you meant that one or the one at Lake Saria to reach the last bottle, which is just a real pain to hit the right spot. You did find the solution, you have to beat the boss first.

Figured out the graphical issue with Vitreous.  It uses gfx tiles from the title screen.  Unfortunately, HM can't edit PW's title screen.  Does anybody have any documentation on the title screen so I can try and fix it manually?  I think there are a few other tiles that could be used instead.

Here are the tiles it's using, vs the originals.

So this explains why there's ice falling on me on that entrance, and why I couldn't cross that gap.

And I'm saving Vid.me for when they allow me to post over half-hour videos without having to prove I'm a legitimate channel so I can transfer my entire video channel there.

EDIT: I found the Parallel Tower key I had forgot... In the Ice World, at the Church basement. Isn't it marvelous?

Ok, so here's an overlay of the correct Vitreous gfx and the buggy ones.  Basically, it's pretty clearly just the outline and the 7's. The "x" tile in the bottom-center is correct, it's actually part of the floor underneath.

Ok, looking at VRAM again, that bottom row of tiles which is incorrect is NOT overwritten by the title screen tiles, that row in VRAM contains different tiles during the title screen.  I think that 4th row is all animation tiles, and it's like it's loading the wrong set of animation tiles. I need to find the right tiles in YY-CHR to know for sure whether the gfx have actually been overwritten, or if it's just loading the wrong ones.

AHA, FOUND IT, AND THE TILES ARE INTACT!

I was correct, it's just loading the wrong animation set.  It's loading the first set here, when it should be loading the third set.  Does anybody know how to fix this?
