Guidelines for Mario/Luigi to position correctly after touching the axe:
•Where the bridge, rope and axe must be is at an even page number. E.G. 0,2,4, etc.
•Changing the speed of the player can result in either Mario too fast to stop at the default location, and vice versa.
•Defaults: Bridge - Horz. Pos. 1,
Rope - Horz. Pos. 12,
Axe - Horz. Pos. 13,
Scroll stop [next page] - Horz. Pos. 5.
•Sometimes, depends on the level itself, Mario touching the right edge of the axe can cause position instability and text might not appear.
I'm not sure whether the patches have a side effect on the scroll stop object.
