(SMBX2.0) How to use Magic Potion?

How can I make a magic potion that sends me to subspace like in SMB2? I've tried telling it to send me to section 1 which is where the Subspace is going to be but instead it spits me right back out the door I came in.

It looks like the section indices for the potion are off by one... presumably because in the old editor they were numbered wrong. Try putting in 2.

Nope. Then it takes me to somewhere later in the level where my character is off-screen and instantly dies.

Well, that should bring you to the next section over...

Essentially, what this item does, is warp you to the specified section (-1). In this transition, it maintains your current distance to the top left corner of that section. So if you are 3 screens to the right of where Section 0 begins and put a 2 into the field, it warps you 3 sections to the right of where Section 1 begins. Tweak the numbers to make it work for your use case. Does this make sense? If not, let me know what part is hard to understand. It's a bit difficult to explain.

Alright, I'll see what I can do.
