    When I said I didn't understand it, I don't know how to edit it. I knew what it was. I still don't understand it.

    I don't understand the damn thing. I can't find the codes... Someone really just needs to make an IPS patch... that's something me (as well as most people) can work with.

    Are you sure you did it correctly? The last row they list is NOT right below the other rows, it's further along in the file, and you edit some values in the middle.


    Anyways, an IPS patch cannot be made, since the IPS format uses 24-bit addressing, it cannot accurately be used with files larger than 16 megabytes (2 to the 24th power, 16,777,216 bytes), so in order to patch roms for later systems, other formats have been developed.

    I've created a patch with the modifications indicated in the first post, hopefully this one will work past the first few episodes, but I'm honestly too lazy to try it out. [​IMG]

    That file won't stay up forever, so if you're going to get it, get it now to be safe.

    I think I meant DPS or something, not IPS.
    But uhhh.... nice link to a messed up file bro. It doesn't want to open the zip file.
    So uhh.... I need something else that will apply that filetype.

    1 - It's not a zip file, the extension in the link is not zip.
    2 - I linked to the patching program in that same post.

    I'm talking about the patching program. That's why I asked for a different patching program.
