A drop of water falls into a still pool…
ONCE, DRAGONS AND MEN COEXISTED. THEY SHARED—
A! B! Start! Skip, skip, skip!
It doesn’t matter if your hack has new characters!
It doesn’t matter if your hack has a new story line!
It doesn’t matter if your hack takes place in an entirely new universe!
That darn opera singer wants to tell you about Elibe’s Scouring regardless!
Well, no more!
Skip the intro cutscene:
At 0BC58E: edit 0DD0 → 0000
After the “2003 Nintendo Presents” message, the game jumps straight to the title screen.
Allow the first “2003 Nintendo Presents” message to be skipped:
At 0BC580: edit 14D0 → 0000
Normally, the 2003 message is unskippable the first time it’s shown. Combining this with the above edit will make the game start at the title screen.
Disable replay intro, but keep class roll:
At 0127A6: edit 00 → 01
If you wait on the title screen, the game alternates between showing the class roll and replaying the intro sequence. If you applied the skip intro edit, the intro won’t be replayed but the title screen will still fade to black and the music will restart. This edit prevents the title screen from being reset by the timer.
Disable both class roll and replay intro:
At 0BAA25: edit D1 → E0
The game will remain on the title screen.
