StarTropics - No Movement Delay

Hack of StarTropics

Description:

This patch removes the 8 frame delay after changing directions and reduces it to 1 frame. You can still change direction without moving by a quick tap of the direction pad.

The patch only modifies one hex value in the rom. It is a massive improvement over the original game.

You will need an IPS patch installer to patch the rom such as Lunar IPS http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/240/

Note: This rom can also be patched with the music fix hack without issue.

Thank you so much!

Reviewed By: Elecman on 12 Feb 2017

This is exactly what Star Tropics needed. I was a king Zelda player in the day, and coming to Star Tropics was frustrating.

That delay in turning always bugged me, and I didn’t understand why they did that. Thank you so much for fixing this game.
