    I have been trying to patch Love Plus with patch v0.9 with xdelta gui. But, after I clicked "Apply patch" there is no patched rom anywhere. I had been waiting for about 5 minutes, but there is nothing. I thought a patched rom supposed to be there with (filename)_patched.nds
    I have clean rom with the size of 256 MB
    But, it still won't work.
    Please someone, help me.

    LovePlusV09_20111104.patch
    LovePlus ROM
    xDelta
    xDelta GUI

    The 4 of them in same folder? Good
    Patch Select, select patch
    Select Rom, select the rom
    Click Apply patch and then wait a little bit, depending on your machine it could take a couple minutes. You may need to refresh your window with F5 if it doesn't appear. A Love Plus_patched.nds rom should be there.

    It seemed, It was placed in root folder. I don't know how it ended up in that place, though. Does xDelta Gui creates patched rom in the root folder?

    You could use the official xdelta command line tool.

    Downloads:
    Windows 32-bit (use this if you aren't sure which to use)
    Windows 64-bit (use this if you know your processor has an x86_64 architecture)

    Here's a tutorial for how to use XDeltaGUI.
    It's for another game so when it mentioned the game and the patch, you will have to use your Love Plus game and Love Plus patch instead of the Tokimeki Memorial game.
    https://sites.google.../ilust-tutorial

    By the way, make sure you unzip/unrar your files. The game rom must have file extension .nds and the patch must be .patch. (If you still have them as .rar or .zip, find a program to extract them first.)

    I have a problem too.
    When I click patch, it's working in the background and ... I have no patched file created in the source folder.

    Maybe it created the file in another folder?
    I've check the usual place when software use the default user folder (c:/apps and settings/username/) instead of the source, but it wasn't there either.

    It's nowhere on C:, nor on the source drive.

    I did it with the command line
    Code:
    xdelta patch LovePlusV09_20111104.patch "4152 - Love Plus (J)(Independent).nds" "4152 - Love Plus (J)(Independent)_patched.nds"
    and it worked fine, it created the patched file in the source dir correctly.

    maybe there's a bug with the GUI?

    Thanks both of you very much. I just added this thread to the translation project's FAQs page.

    I'm not very good at using command line and I've never had any problem with XDeltaGUI. I'm not sure what caused the problem though.

    "I found out the only way I could patch it was with xdelta GUI and the components in thumb drive and patching it like that on my computer. I couldn't patch it alone on my PC, but I could on my DS and on a thumb drive. If that helps anyone."

    Quoted from
    https://sites.google.com/site/tokimemogs1/patching-tutorial

    Worked for me.

    I can't get the patcher to work either. Is this a windows 10 problem?
