RockMan 8 Prototype 1 - Level builder

Another day, another unused debug function discovered through asm hacking. :D





This feature cannot be activated via GameShark/Action Replay, unfortunately.

I somehow overlooked this during my initial sweep, heh.



...aaaand it's b0rken - there isn't any controller functionality for this and required a nasty asm hack to get it working.

The "OBJECT TEST MODE" can be fixed, though, I'm not sure it would be worth the effort.

In addition, this build contains the exact-same "PAGE SELECT MODE" that is found in the 2nd alpha-prototype (example).

Also, this build contains a "SOUND TEST" similar to that found in the retail version (example), but completely lacking the EQ. Some statistical strings are different, as well ("EDT" and "SUB" are missing). Just like retail version, a hack was required to get the statistical strings to be displayed.

...and last, but not least, there is a simple function that displays the player position and health (not worth picturing).

I'll have a new patch available, soon.
