    There is a program that allows it, but it doesn't work with SNES VC games. (I think)

    auto injectuwad works fine, even if the rom in the wad is smaller then the one you want to inject it will still work.

    i guess i always had a wad big enough. there is a packer that has no size limit, its the one that supports neo-geo.

    You are not using the correct injector program... Try with "new vc injector" By Devilken (neogeo as well) "Any size" allowed. (till 50Mb)

    Damn, there's nothing that'll allow a 64MB rom then? (OoT Debug Rom for instance)

    I need some help. So I want to play Mario Party 3 as a wad but whenever I try to inject it in The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask.wad it gives me this error. ERROR: Rom file too large to inject to the selected entry, exiting!!


    Failed
    Even though the rom is 32mb and the wad is 46mb it still gives me this error.

    check the compatibility list:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/VCInjections_Compatiblity_List

    Mario party 3 is listed as not working. with sin & punishment as source, it freeze while playing, but at least it can be injected.
    I don't know if you can inject it into a different wad source, the list only gives report with sin & punishment wad.


    It's not the wad that you need to check it's size, but the ROM inside it.
    I doubt the ROM inside is 46mb, as it's not a round size. (unless it's trimmed)

    Trying to inject Mario Party 1 & 3, ROMs are definitely smaller than the target wad but its still coming up ROM too big.

    Can't use Donkey Kong 64 as a base coz Wii U only :(
