--Marble Madness camhack script for Aglar's run.
--Script by TheAxeMan
-- 
--I usually put the rewind code in a separate module but combined it here for distribution.
-- 
--This module is designed to provide "frame rewind" where
--holding down R and pressing frame advance once will bring
--you back one frame. You should be able to pick up from
--there with no trouble.

--"Hex edit bytes $0B8E and $0B8F in the rom from B5 80 to A9 01.
--That makes the screen scroll while the marble is falling.
