This is pretty great, but there are a couple minor details that bug me.

-The Triforce HUD scaling in the automap makes using said automap pretty much impossible unless you use a super tiny HUD.

-The sword opens bombable walls, which...Well, it shouldn't? Far as I know it's possible to make objects that only respond to a specific weapon, so why not do this with bomb walls?

-Sword swing feels a bit slow compared to LoZ's sword stab.

-Sword projectile can travel several "screens" in some cases before hitting something, limiting its use if you miss a shot and it goes past what would be a "screen" boundary. Maybe limit its range to prevent this?

@Detwelve - I agree with this fellow So I'll offer the fix advice

-The Triforce HUD scaling in the automap makes using said automap pretty much impossible unless you use a super tiny HUD. --- GZD 4.7.1 updated Automap stuff. So there may be a way of adjusting it easier now.

-The sword opens bombable walls, which...Well, it shouldn't? Far as I know it's possible to make objects that only respond to a specific weapon, so why not do this with bomb walls?--- This one is mostly fixed by MAPINFO concerning Hub Maps so that opened stuff remains saved rather than reset every time.

-Sword swing feels a bit slow compared to LoZ's sword stab. --- This one is true. The sword can safely swing faster without causing a gameplay imbalance. Tic speed of 2 at each address Fire state frame should resolve this pretty easy.

-Sword projectile can travel several "screens" in some cases before hitting something, limiting its use if you miss a shot and it goes past what would be a "screen" boundary. Maybe limit its range to prevent this? This can be fixed via the Spawn State ending with : Goto Spawn+2 rather than use of Loop to give it an infinite range. This should just run it through it SPawn animation phase for 2 full cycles, or however long the best timing is, then initiate the Death State after that.
