Debug Map Mode

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.

A debug map mode exists that functions like the one in Sonic the Hedgehog. To access it, use the experimental Action Replay code 008E26:00AC. Pause the game, and press Start.

  • Use the D-Pad to move around the map.
  • Press A to change the sprite.
  • Press B to place the current sprite.
  • Press Start to resume the game.
Hmmm...
To do:
Find a better way to access this. Do any jumps or branches to $008ED2 or $008EB6 exist?
