Later Midge Mallet

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This patch prevents acquisition of the Midge Mallet until after you’ve acquired Flammie, which adds a small amount of additional difficulty to the game.

In the original version of the game it was possible to get the Midge Mallet from the dwarf elder just before going to the Upper Land. Doing so required having to double back a bit to retrieve it, but it was generally worth it to get this fairly handy item so early, otherwise you’d have to wait until you get Flammie before you can go back to retrieve it.

Important things to note:

  • Apply this to an unheadered ROM.
  • This patch is incompatible with the “Earlier Midge Mallet” hack for rather obvious reasons. You must choose one or the other. Thanks to Timbo for suggesting this alternative version of the hack.
  • How to combine this with the Variable Width Font hack: 1. Apply VWF, 2. Remove header, 3. Apply Later Midge Mallet, 4. Apply Later Midge Mallet VWF support.
  • How to combine this with Relocalized: 1. Apply Relocalized, 2. Apply Later Midge Mallet, 3. Apply Later Midge Mallet Relocalized support.

Wrong!!

Reviewed By: hmsong on 07 Sep 2019

This applies Early Midget Mallet, not Later Midget Mallet. And Early one applies Early too. So… no Later Midge Mallet. At all.
