@CeeDee requested an IPS patcher for the 3DS, and I did it! Yay ^_^

There's nothing fancy in this program... Press X to select the ips file, press A to select the ROM file, navigate into the directory you want to place the output file to, then press START, enter a filename, then watch the debug output while the program is patching the ROM :P

Download links have been removed because all copies of the binary seem to be lost.​

Sorry; someone's got to ask... :P
... What does it do? I know that IPS is a screen type, but this program "patches" the IPS, so I'm assuming it means something else?

Anyhow, an outstanding job! :yay3ds:

IPS, as in IPS the ROM hack patching format... Not IPS the screen type.

If you can install CIAs, then yes.

IPS files are generally used for ROMhacks, because it's legal, because it doesn't involve distributing the whole ROM with it. Also, you can't reverse-engineer the original file from an IPS patch file, so that's another "plus" in this case.

Sadly you can't on a vanilla (unhacked) 3DS system, sorry :(

Oh; I've only known xDelta-type patches (I remember from an AC:NL ROM I had to apply an xDelta patch to), but thanks for clearing that up for me! :D

Any benefit other than comfort using this instead of patching from Windows? It is faster?

idk, lol :P

But it's WAAAY slower on the 3DS... like, it takes <1sec to patch the ROM, on the 3DS it takes ~30seconds...
(like 3dsconv takes a second to convert a half a gigabyte ROM to cia, yet on the 3DS it takes 25minutes :P)
