Hello! I'm the creator of an episode that makes use of the new Star Coin NPCs to keep track of a player's Star Coin progress. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to determine an effective, player-friendly way to display a player's Star Coin progress, meaning that they'd currently have to enter every single level to check their progress.
In the HUD of a level, its Star Coin Counter and index positioning are displayed.
#1. Is there a way to show this counter on the World Map on a per-level basis. There is obviously code that executes in order to display a level's title when a player walks over its corresponding level icon. Is there a way I could display exactly this on its corresponding level so that the player just has to walk on a level's icon to check their Star Coin progress for that level, just like in NSMB?
#2. Are there any even more convenient methods to display Star Coin totals and progress, such as keeping track of a player's overall Star Coin count on the World Map & in levels?
#3. What are the files/variables in which this information is stored in an episode's save file, & how would I be able to access them, extract them, and apply them where appropriate for the reasons stated above?
I would appreciate any type of response, specifically detailed ones. Thank you!
