    Don't want this name associated with ROM hacking, but it was my discord name on the Pokémon mini server when USC made this, so I've changed it to the name I use here and added some context

Super Mario Advance - Boss Intro Restoration

Hack of Super Mario Advance

Description:

In Super Mario Advance, Fryguy and Clawgrip have new introductions. These intros show what the bosses looked like before being transformed to fight the player.

Interestingly enough, Mouser and Tryclyde also have fully programmed introductions that go unused. Readding them back to the game, however, reveals that these intros are in a slightly unpolished state (for example, there doesn’t seem to be code to display the second animation frame).

This patch not only restores these unused boss intros, but also touches them up as much as possible to look more in-line with Fryguy and Clawgrip’s boss intros.

Unused Content Revived

Reviewed By: SuperStarFox on 26 Jan 2022

My good man “Mister Man” has done it again with yet another restoration for Super Mario Advance! The unused boss intros for Mouser and Tryclyde are restored and some intro animations for one of the other bosses were tweaked to give the game some more polish and improvement.

Does it work with the other two hacks he made, of course! After all, it along with the music pitch and the SNES color restoration finally gives this game a complete new look.

I also forgot to mention that a soft lock in World 1-3 was fixed to prevent the player from being stuck in the first half of the boss room when you don’t use your bombs to break the cracked square blocks.
