Sphereful is kinda like a "goplat"

The request is that the Sphereful is harmless and you can jump onto its "head" (it's like the Gik), so you can ride it. The movement of the Sphereful itself is the original, no change. Keep in mind.
But if you shoot the Sphereful, it falls down (so acting exactly like the dropping platform - it falls off the screen like the dropping platform) And no stars above its "head"! The "falling Sphereful" has an own death frame, which is 5SPR0362.BMP, because I will use the diamond removal patch.

I hope it's possible somehow.

This should do it. Note that it doesn't do too much to the diamonds, so they'll be left hanging in the air when the Sphereful is shot, unless you completely remove them from its animation.

Code: Select all

#Sphereful can be stood on:
%patch $1362C $06

#Sphereful harmless, shootable:
