So, I was meddling with Castlevania Circle of the Moon and found out that, in the US version, the address 0200009c handles whether you are running or walking. Freezing it to 1 makes you walk and freezing it to 0 makes you run. What this got to do with my idea? Simple: My idea is to create a hack with an "Always Run" option, but also to fix a few issues that always running causes.
Issues detected so far:
* Venus+Cockatrice (Sherman Ring effect, gain 1 exp per step you WALK) doesn't work because it requires you WALK for that.
! Proposed solution: Change it to give 1 EXP per second instead (if possible) but increase MP drain.
* Allows Wall Climbing, almost like Mega Man X, because you will be at your full horizontal speed at all times.
! Proposed Solution: Design some areas to have breakable wall on a crate instead of a plain wall. Crates and breakable walls cannot be wall kicked from.
* Twitches between Push and Run frames while pushing a box.
! Proposed Solution: Figure how this address is affected by the box and have it stop the running attempting until you are not pushing the box.
