But since all scripts are cleared in the patch it was replaced with 0xFF bytes, leading to the error encountered.

Anyway, this is a pretty helpful/ simple tutorial to get around the problems associated with SMCA and its even better now that people will be able to know at a glance how to change that elusive Y-coordinate
Thank you DrFuji, but I have a question, why was it so elusive? It was so close to the other data, i found it rather quickly. Why wasn't it included in SMCA?

The player facing makes sense. It's just a sprite behave command. Hmmm, i guess I'll add that to the tutorial. Thanks for letting me know!
