    ...I don't think anybody is going to have any idea what you're talking about unless you're a bit more specific. We're not mind-readers ya know.

    Try different version of the game. You might be trying to patch the U release with an IPS made for the E release.

    I'll try to help.
    Usually when an IPS patch does not work, it means you're using a dfferent rom version of the game, and by "different" I do not mean only different region, but different version.
    For instance, you may have the Super Mario Bros 2 (PRG 1 CHR 0) (U) version, but the IPS patch only works with the Super Mario Bros 2 (U) (PRG 1) one, got it?
    ou may need an Good tool to identify the version you have.
