(Ooooohhh, MrRean's gonna hate me for this. :P)

I had a rather interesting idea on the IRC recently: What if we took retextured Comet Medals and made Star Coins? Retexturing would be rather easy, I assume, but from what MrRean tells me, the collection of Comet Medals is hardcoded and would require ASM hacking to increase from one to three. Not to mention a new GUI.

I don't really have high hopes, but I was wondering if someone would look further into this idea.

It's not hardcoded. We just need to increase the value for each level to 3.

Oh. :P Is that accomplished via BSCV...?

I doubt it.
I looked into the files for it, and saw nothing connecting the quantity in a level.

Well then that's where the complicated Assembly comes into play :) Wait...it's not hardcoded?
Uhh.....Y'sure?

Hardcoded means something is seriously coded into the game, and can't be edited easily without it crashing on the spot.

That isn't hardcoded.

Well there is a part that says if a galaxy has one in the first place, I know that much, but IDR if it lets you put multiple. The hard part is the layout and tracking which one goes where, which does require editing the memory regardless.

It is possible to place more than one Comet Medal in a level without freezing, surprisingly. :P

Neither does loading a galaxy without one. I wasn't suprised.

This is hilarious.
It is either, based on compiled code. Or it is based on an easily editable file.
What is this "hardcoded" business?

This "hardcoded business" is making it obvious you didn't read the posts at all.

It is possible you are right.
