Altered health patch (Keen now flinches on hit)

Post by Flyingmouse »

I really like the health patch on Keenwiki, but simply getting Ankh time when hit got a little boring. This patch sets up a new Keen behavior (copies stun behavior, but non-animating and with different frames depending on direction) over the unused code at $7F03, then alters the original health code to use this new behavior when Keen is hit. By default the frames used are 28-29 (the two frames used in the stun behavior's animation), but this shouldn't cause any issues if changed. I'm not 100% sure this will work as given since this comes from a larger project and I may be missing patches, so if someone could give feedback I'd appreciate it.

Code: Select all

#Lives now act as health; Keen dies when hit with 1 health
#SIDE EFFECT: C-T-Space is disabled
#SIDE EFFECT: God Mode does not protect Keen from damage
#SIDE EFFECT: Getting a pogo kills Keen, last three patches allow Keen to pogo without the item
#Makes additional space (uses C-T-Space code by default, could be edited to free space if you move calls properly)
%patch $114E $EB $16  
#Pogo count triggers kill switch, used by hazard tiles
