    Does anyone know of any ROM patching software I can run on a Mac?

    I checked the site and couldn't find one to download.

    What do you want to patch the roms for? Generic SRAM patching? A specific flashcart (Supercard, M3, EZ4, etc.)?

    This is the GBA section, but I'll ask anyway: What type of roms do you want to patch (GBA, NDS, something else)?

    I need something to patch ROMS for GBA. I'm using the EFA Simple 512. Everyone says you need to use the client, which is PC only, but I was told by the distributor the only reason you would need the client would be to patch certain ROMS, most shouldn't even need it. SO, I'm hoping to be able to get patching software for Mac, so I don't have to use the PC. I have the driver, as long as that works and the ROMS are patched, shouldn't I be alright?

    I really don't understand why patching is necessary, could you enlighten me?

    By the way, I have a G5, not an Intel Mac.

    There's a driver that works outside of windows? Really? Please share.

    If so, run the patcher with darwine (if you have an intel mac)

    I don't have an intel Mac, it's a G5, so I can't run Darwine. I thought the driver for the thing would be universal? I guess I'll just have to use my roomies PC.
