    If you want to inject a GBC rom into a NES rom, what should you do after using RomFs Extractor?

    just toss it in TITLEID/romfs_/rom/ only NES Roms nee dto be put thru tnes when injecting. and NES VC's have Multirom Support. (if more than one rom is in /rom it brings up a file menu when you start it.)

    do you need to name the file anything special? I tried and I don't think I got it right.

    No but prime NES Candidates are NES Zelda 1 and GBC would be Warioland II

    does that mean titles to put roms into? I have "NES Zelda 1". this thing's confusing.

    Yes, for myself i have FF2 (GBC) Pokemon Yellow (GBC) Shantae (GBC) Base Wars (NES) Earthbound Zero (NES) Monopoly (NES) Tetris (NES) and both Zelda 1 &2 for myself for VC Injection (using Legend of Zelda 1 VC.)

    Just remember Games that do not save will not prompt to reset your existing save for the VC but when Switching Roms.. its going to bug out. (you;ll loose teh save so finish one game before swapping or back em up w/ SVDT)

    Just make sure it looks like this (RomFS)/rom/YourRomsHere.NES/GBC it doesnt matter what they're named. the VC's Emulator Checks the headers anyway File Name doesnt exactly Matter. when you have thr oms you want in the /rom director within the RomFS of your dumped VC, Run RomFSBuilder and Name it Accordingly

    Run Hans once to atleast know what Filename.romfs it's expecting so say... since its NES zelda 1, it should be "0006f100.romfs" place the resulting rebuild ROMFS to SD:\hans\

    you should be good after that. Not ALL NES games and all GBC Games work!it depends on the Host VC but there isnt much i've tested that hasnt worked sofar using Zelda 1 as the Host.

    I have used HANS romfs/code before, just the last time I tried to do VC injection (into a GBC game) it crashed on loading. thanks.

    np Just remember not all games work and not all hosts are compatible. sometimes erasing the save Helps (bu ysing SVDT and deleting whats in teh save for the VC.)

    Have you tried deleting the update data? There may be a file in the romfs folder that's labeled with 'update' something or other. I can get a picture if you don't know what I'm talking about (or, rather, I'm not describing it well enough, heh). I wasn't able to use Pokemon Crystal in Link's Awakening DX until I deleted that file (and possible the original Link's Awakening DX rom file).

    The thing is I don't know how to use TNES. But I know how to use the Builder, the Extractor and HxD.

    tnes is stupid simple "tnes RomName.nes NameForConvertedRom.nes" thats it litterally. so say your converting a rom named Test. then its "tnes test.nes test-converted.nes"
