    That depends on what you need the patch for.
    If its to make a ROM work on a flash cart you need the software for that flash cart such as Supercard software or Supercard Magic Homebrew Patcher.
    If its to add a trainer, they are usually in IPS format and you need an IPS patcher.

    I see... Thanks for the tip.
    So I think I must need software for my supercard [​IMG]

    Does that come with the supercard or can I download this software of a site?

    Back in my day, all we had was SNESTOOL and ips patches. we didn't have these newfangled batch processes!! I applied the DS FF3 patch, and I never even had to open a DOS prompt!

    kids these days! *shakes fist*
