It completely rewrites the saving and loading routines. Maps are fully saved (meaning Kejmap is useless), $100 bytes extra are saved per file, and another $100 bytes globally. Uses a bunch of free space in $81, but meh. Who uses that bank anyway?

Essential for any hack that changes the map, which most hacks should, so almost every hack should use this patch.

it's the map patch! it lets you change the map from vanilla; really it should be pinned at the top of resources. Essential patch.

As others have said, really good patch that you can generally throw into your hack without having to worry about conflicts. It should be noted that there is a small functional difference between this patch and the one found on, but I believe that difference is a bug introduced in the latter when cleaning up the code and that this one is correct. I personally have always used this one and haven't found any issues with it, anyway.

SM likes it when this patch applied to it, I recommend you do the same and make your SM happy too

NOTE: if applying ASM version with Asar, it will break at runtime. To fix:

Replace all LDA with LDA.l in every instance of "LDA SRAMAddressTable,X"

There is also a minor bug. If you select a save file, but back out instead of loading into the game, then pick a different save slot and start a new game, the map exploration from the slot you backed out of will get copied to the new game.

Hear me out. It is PERFECTLY CROMULENT to make a halfhack that doesn't move rooms around or add new ones. Many delightful entries into Metconst canon have been made that way. Homenag for example. I think. Don't feel like you need to make your own maps, when adding spikes to landing site is all it takes to call yourself a hacker.

For everyone else, you'll need this patch.
