Level-theme patch

Post by szemigi » Sat May 23, 2015 1:58 pm

I want a Keen Dreams patch, which is the following.

If you start a new game (easy, normal or hard mode), you immediately jump to the first level instead of the worldmap level. Moreover, if you completed a level, you jump to the next level (including the place holder levels - Level 6,8,11 and 13 - as well)

*Cricks*

If this is the case, you don't NEED to go to level 1, just make it a normal level with a normal Keen, otherwise you're just wasting it.

Code: Select all

#Keen goes to the next level instead of the map
%patch $5DF9 $FF $06 $7124W  $B8 $000DW  $50 $9A $10BB1282RL     $44 $44 $EB $22

Now you can still die and go to level 0 (exit to Tuberia) but this too can be easily patched. (Like in Meets the Meats.)

Can you patch it "easily" for me? (So if you die - no matter in which level you are - you are back to the actual level instead of going back to the worldmap.)

Certainly!

This patch leaves everything as it is, you can still select options but both get you to retry the level:

Code: Select all

#Esc retries level
%patch $5C83 $EB $04

#'Exit' option retries level
%patch $5CBF $EB

Of course this is a bit stupid. So maybe we remove the 'Exit' option entirely and make it so that all the player can do is press a key to retry the level:

Code: Select all

#Disable ability to change options
%patch $5CC9 $E9 $FD88W

#Remove 'Exit' text
%patch $5A49 $EB $09

#Esc retries level
%patch $5C83 $EB $04

It is also possible to change the size of the flashing rectangle and also its color, even remove it entirely:

Code: Select all

#No rectangle
%patch $5A85 $E9 $00EAW
