Wario Ware GBA battery consumption patch

This patch fixes Wario Ware (US version for GBA) so it doesn't eat batteries as quickly.

Re: Wario Ware GBA battery consumption patch

What does it modify, exactly? As I don't feel like messing up my ROMs or EFA Linker... That happened with Wario Land 4 and Sonic Advance 3, previously  (I tried patching them with Boot-o-Mat Advance).

But I'm also really interested! =)

Re: Wario Ware GBA battery consumption patch

The game uses a dumb polling loop to wait for the next interrupt.  This keeps the CPU running at 100% usage all the time.  The patch changes the code so it uses a bios function to halt the CPU until the next interrupt, so it uses less battery power.

Re: Wario Ware GBA battery consumption patch

Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this! There's this new hack for the 3DS, and this game runs so smooth on it. Sorry for bumping this up, but I had to say thanks! Been looking for games that run as smooth as this for a while and all have lags.
