Hack Request: Wonder Boy III The Dragon's Trap (SMS) Single Player Controller Patch

Equip the Tasmanian sword, and jump into the air. While in the air, hold [2] on controller 2 and press [1] on controller 1. You'll transform when you land.


Basically, could one of you fine people please create a controller hack where instead of using [2] on controller 2 alongside [1] on controller 1, you can use [2] and [1] on controller one?

Wouldn't that make it trigger all the time?

We could use UP+Attack like the remake does, and only when Tasmanian sword is equipped.

The code for it start around 0x4EEC in the ROM:


LABEL_4EEC:
      LD   A,($CF66)       ; read current sword
      CP   09         ;tasmanian?
      JR   NZ,LABEL_4F0C
      BIT   4,(IX+01H)
      JR   Z,LABEL_4F0C
      LD   A,($CF90+1)     ; pad 2
      CP   20H
LABEL_4EFE:
      JR   NZ,LABEL_4F0C
      LD   A,($C24F)         ; current hero type
      INC   A
      CP   6
      JR   C,LABEL_4F09
      XOR   A               ; back to first hero
LABEL_4F09:
      LD   ($C24F),A          ; write hero type
LABEL_4F0C:

I know this is borderline heresy, but how would you feel about it being the A button on a Mega Drive pad?

That would be great!

That is a good idea, however it would not work for me, personally. I think that if this patch was made, people would love to use it as an alternative!
