Excited to try this patch! Just found it for the first time, looking into using the canoe patch.
Curious, how many changes are missing from the Canoe patch vs the most updated version now? How would someone go about trying to implement all those new changes into a new Canoe patch?
Thank you for all your work! It's very much appreciated and quite inspiring.
By now, I can safely say "a lot" and just leave it at that. You can probably go back to the last time that version was updated, and then after that everything was either not done or needs looked at. Canoe was behind on updates before the Fiend/Fiendlord change, not to mention stuff like missing the whole item description shakeup and a bunch of smaller changes.
Temporal Flux doesn't work with Canoe since the patch basically converts it into a whole other ROM. Way back when Primpinelephant was doing canoe updates, it was basically examining the code via hex and making the changes that way. But now that there's a new graphics hack in the mix and no one left any clue as to how sluffy did this, it's kinda anyone's guess how to handle that. Last graphics issue had to do with banks, but I sure couldn't tell you the location.
