    I heard that Majoras Mask was officially released in the USA on Monday. I know I can't ask for the WAD,
    But while I am searching, how can I tell the difference between all the hundreds of NTSC roms that have been injected into a PAL Wad, and the official nintendo NTSC WAD?

    Use freethewads GUI to read the wad. It will tell you if it is Free, Pal, NTSC, or NTSC-J.

    or you could be a pirate, and use WAD_ID to check what region it is. [​IMG]

    will there be a difference between a PAL version that has been changed to NTSC and the offical Wad, which is orginally NTSC?

    One way to check is that the original NTSC version has ESRB rating message in the channel banner and the manual, but you have to install it first.

    But I think if you just compare the date of the file it shoudl be easy to determine. The NTSC version was released just last week, and most injected ones were from way longer before.

    Because I want to see if the Majoras Mask - Collectors Edition USA ROM will work if I inject into the newest american version. It comes up with a black screen
    if I inject into the PAL version WAD.

    Yep, I know. It does not.

    People have tried injecting everything under the sun into it, with no more luck than with any other wad. You definitely can't inject any other roms that need the expansion pack into it... well, you can, but they don't work.

    Yes, I have an offical Nintendo NTSC Wad and it is not injected which I like very much. I hate something to do with injected. This game works fine thanks to Nintendo. I am happy that Nintendo released it. I have many wad games that hadn't been injected.. you have to find this official nintendo somewhere on the site. I found only on mIRC.. Its best one to go.

    It has slightly higher resolution and the buttons actually say Press A (green button), L-Targeting instead of Z-targeting. Its just cosmetics, the original Majoras Mask actually would run smoother on the virtual console, but I just wanna see If I can get it working.
