    I have a patch for the Megaman XY and i want to use it but I have no idea how. Someone gave me this but i have no idea what to do with it: "bspatch.exe lgc-mmzx.nds lgc-mmzx-p.nds TF-MMZX6.BDF" Can someone please tell me how to apply a patch to a rom? I'm using an M3 and MiniSD. Thanks in advance.

    The patch is in BSF (bsdiff) format and you have the command line needed to patch the rom assuming it is called lgc-mmzx.nds.

    Basically hit start, run, type cmd, hit enter, change to the directory the patch (and all the stuff that was in the zip) and the rom is in and type the following changing the necessary parts:

    Code:
    bspatch.exe (name of rom).nds (name of output rom).nds (name of patch)
    or you could copy the above line into notepad and change all the necessary parts, save in the same folder as the rom and patching stuff with a .bat extension and then double click it.

    this will produce a file called (name of output rom.nds which you then burn to your card.

    I do however hear that the trainer does not work so well for the M3.
