Quote from: vivify93 on September 01, 2017, 06:45:47 PMI have no clue. Snarfblam said to change "both 88's" to the desired bitmask, but there's only one 88 existent anymore in Metroid + Saving. I contented myself in both my personal mod of Metroid + Saving v0.3, and in Metroid mOTHER: Galactic Edition v3, with just keeping it as Up + A. I wanted it to be A + Select though, or even A + B + Select like in Metroid: Rogue Dawn.
Quote from: vivify93 on August 27, 2017, 10:41:21 AMI wasn't being rude, and I didn't mean to come across that way. You helped out a lot and I'm sure Krustentier7 is grateful. I was just posting more information on the hack they asked for.Edit 1 - You want the mOTHER graphics on top of everything else, right? I'll see what I can do.Edit 2 - It's done! Jesus, that took forever. I'll upload a patch here soon, but I will not upload it to the site without Snarfblam and dACE's permissions.There's a couple more changes I think that should be made before it's considered "fully finished," though.Firstly, the save button combination. You guys know how in Metroid: Rogue Dawn, you can save at any time by pausing, then pushing Select on controller 1, then also on controller 1, you press the A Button, and the B Button simultaneously? I think something similar should be done for Metroid mOTHER. Right now, it uses Pause, then on controller 2 you push D-Pad Up, then the A Button. To go along with the "ease of access" philosophy, I really think that it should all be on controller 1.I was also wondering if Missile pickups should be a full 5 at a time instead of just 2, but would that make things too easy?Edit 3 - I call it Metroid mOTHER: Galactic Edition.http://www.bwass.org/bucket/Metroid_mOTHER_Galactic_Edition-3.zip (The old v2 link has been removed; only v3 remains, which fixes some graphical glitches and makes saving happen entirely on Controller 1)I'm no super hacker; all I did was make patches and apply them, and pray! LMAO. So to clear up any confusion, I'll outline my process here:- Applied Metroid mOTHER to a Metroid I ROM- Applied Metroid + Saving v0.4 NotDone to another Metroid I ROM- Applied Metroid + Saving v0.3 to yet another Metroid I ROM- Incorporated nesrocks' Low Energy Alarm (10 NRG or less) and Full Energy mods to the Metroid + Saving v0.4 ROM- Made a patch for Metroid + Saving by using v0.3 as the "original, unmodified ROM" and v0.4 (With nesrocks' enhancements) as the "new, modified ROM"- Applied the above patch to Metroid mOTHER- Did some rudimentary testingI'm glad it worked. I pretty much went on instinct here and could've wound up with nothing to show for it. The whole game has not been tested, but everything seems alright.
Quote from: romevi on November 14, 2017, 12:37:00 AMOMG Thank you! This makes the ultimate Metroid Hack (besides Rogue Dawn) even ultimater. Thank you!Had no idea wall-jumping was so difficult. Never played Super Metroid (will next), so had to figure out how to do it. Still tricky, though.Questions:- When I pause and hit either Save or Continue, does it always bring me back to the beginning? Thought that if I at least hit Continue it will just un-pause.- You say it's not done. What else is there to do? I'm going to have a buddy of mine make a repro cart of Rogue Dawn and was thinking of doing Metroid mOTHER too, but this compiled version you have is way, way better.
Quote from: vivify93 on August 27, 2017, 03:21:22 PMSo I just found a small bug of when you get out of Brinstar, the new "E" and Missile indicators revert to the "...." and the right half of the old Missile indicator. I've fixed it, and I also did some minor behind-the-scenes updates, but I'm not gonna put a new version up yet. I really want it to be made so that saving can be done all on one controller--that's worth a new full update to me.August 29, 2017, 12:50:51 AM - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)http://www.bwass.org/bucket/Metroid_mOTHER_Galactic_Edition-3.zipSnarfblam kindly told me which byte to change to make it so you only need Controller 1 to save. Pause, then press Up+A on Controller 1 to be taken to the save screen. You shouldn't need the A Button at all on the pause menu--scrolling the map is done with the D-Pad and unpausing requires the Start Button. But remember not to press A while perusing the full map just in case, OK?This also fixes the minor issues with the Energy and Missile displays that I mentioned earlier in this post.Enjoy.
Quote from: Vanya on November 17, 2017, 06:18:22 AMWould there be any issues if instead of Up+A I changed it to just Select?
Quotebit 7=A, bit 6=B, bit 5=SELECT, bit 4=START, bit 3=Up, bit 2=Down, bit 1=Left, bit 0=Right.
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on November 17, 2017, 10:15:29 AMI tried changing the $88 (Up+A) value to just $20, but I couldn't get it to respond.Try it for yourself though, perhaps I was doing something wrong back then and you might have better luck than I had.
Quote from: Psyklax on November 17, 2017, 11:25:38 AMIsn't it Up+A on controller 2? Maybe you were trying the wrong controller. Just a thought. You'd have to change the register (or wherever it's kept in RAM.
Quote from: ShadowOne333For Metroid+Saving the code would be this in Hex:A5 15 29 88 60 ADChanging the 15 to 14 would make it so you can use Controller 1 to do the button combo to save the game at any time.Changing the 88 to some other value depending on the bitmask would make it so that you can choose whatever button combo you desire.
