Remember sprite position

I want to create a sprite, it could be any position on any screen, and have it stay there after changing screens or loading the game.

For the life of me I can't remember how to do this. Is there an easy way? Or just use a global and put a script on every screen to check and create it if necessary?

Which D-Mod is it where the drops are still there after leaving the screen and coming back?

Great, thanks.

After checking it looks like that still relies on placing sprites in the editor, so probably not helpful in this case.

This looks like a job for... SuperVar!

Guess something is brewing in your editor sparrow. Can we have some details?

"Can we have some details?"

It involves sprites staying in the same position.
It uses supervars.
It has infuriating issues with new status bars.
It's a deathly secret that only 4 people IN THE ENTIRE WORLD know about at this time.

It's a smallish thing mostly intended as a dev file or just a bit of fun. It was meant to be finished within a few days or weeks... started in mid-2014
