Just tried the newest patch and it soft locks upon beating a castle with toad also the toad status sprite glitches when transitioning between worlds.
I did not have these problems. ROM problem?

not a rom problem, lexluthermiester.

it seems the problem XModxGodX is encountering is happening with me on some of the castles beaten with Toad, especially the castle in world 1.



it seems Toad runs too far to the left of the screen and "misses" stepping on the detonator that blows up the 1st castle and the game does not continue.
this was with a clean SMW ROM.

This is a very real problem, and happened because i forgot to disable the transitions in the fresh rom. It's fixed, I'm just looking for a fix for the second issue with the world transitions, before I release it. For now I suggest using an older version.

The Final version can't seem to work to me. The ROM boots up, but I get nothing but a black screen. I even patched it correctly!

EDIT: Nevermind, got it to work.

Out of curiosity does the map issue occur when you patch a clean ROM with the patch needed for the toad graphics?

Figured out why I did not have that issue, older version of the patch. Sorry guys.

the "final" version of the patches use IPS files, while the 14.0/14.1 & previous versions use BPS files.  Arty didn't use the BPS format for the final version.



@Arty: where's the "older" version of the SMW DX patch for Toad?

edit: aww never mind, had to go back to the 1st page of this thread to find it (I was kinda in a hurry when typing this)

"There is, however, one fairly noticeable bug to be aware of - the bottom half of the player sprite on the overworld border briefly draws garbage when the windowing overworld transition is active (i.e. when switching maps via a red path tile). Pipes, stars, save prompts and level fades (to and from) all work fine. It took quite some time to sniff out the issue, but it seems this patch is at odds with some code applied by Lunar Magic upon saving the overworld. Applying this patch before or after saving for the first time makes no difference. I've made the decision to approve this update as version 1.2 seems to suffer from the same issue anyway, but a future update to remedy the problem would be welcome."
So, in short, this can't be fixed by myself. The only way it could be fixed is if the 32×32 player tilemap patch got an update.

I'll be sticking with older Toad when I upload this to the site (eventually).

I didn't even noticed I hadn't use the right patch format when getting it ready to send here, my bad.

Sorry for bumping this but I just thought I'd mention that the 32x32 player tilemap patch was apparently fixed: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=21020

What did you do? I have the same problem.
I have a clean rom
I tried lunar IPS, I tried flips and I only got a black screen.
I cannot get the final release to work.
What should I use?

Does your rom have a header? IF the file size is 513K then yes, if 512K then no. Your rom needs to be headerless(512K).

Adding/Removing the header is easy, use the following utility;

Snes Rom Utility is easy to use.

Thanks for the fast response!
My rom is headerless.
I also tried using that utility for patching (without header and with it just to try it), fruitlessly.

They only thing I can think of at this point is to try a new rom...
Try downloading from a new/different source and see if that works.

I always go out of my way to repatch my rom myself to make sure I did everything right, so I can almodt guarantee you're using the wrong rom somehow.

And, also, I apologize for the lack of a final update. I have been meaning to get around to fixing up toad finally but not only have I had no motivation to, I'm also busy with a different and much bigger project + life has been really crazy recently. I have a week break coming up, I'll see if I can get the final patch out at some point during that week. I'll also provide all the "source" files to anyone who asks for it, aka the lunar magic folder with all of its patches, graphics, and tools I used, you'll still have to patch the rom yourself tho, to comply with the rules, but I'll make it as simple as possible.
This way, if you want to use it for your own project or modify it in any way you so choose you have the easy option to do so.
