Jump to: navigation, search

These are some HDMA/PPU effects that can be useful to generate unique effects and also be used as a base to generate other combinations. Because it was designed to be used on Super Mario World's RAM mirrors, it may not work on all SNES games without additional code modification.

$0D9B is the $420C mirror.
