Thanks. Figured it was something weird.

reyvgm: completely off-topic, but I stumbled on a old post of yours on gbc hidden gems, and I must say that the games you wrote about were really hidden and real gems. Vast knowledge of yours. Thanks a lot. If you have recommandations for other systems, I would be happy to read about them. :)

Thanks, I assume you mean this post?

I've made a lot of individual threads and posts over the years, here are some of them:

Awesome, thanks Bosco!

I plan on laying through Lufia II for the first time, I have a question about it's current state. Unpatched, is the only issue garbled credits at the end? Does the game have any sort of new game+ feature that the glitched credits will make me unable to access, or is it purely cosmetic? I know that the current canoe patch fixes the credits but causes some other graphical issues, but I'd rather just deal with scrambled credits if thats the only thing it affects than have other graphic issues in game.

Lufia 2 has two issues
-High resolution credits are garbled.
-Missing effects during battle when using certain magic.

Sluffy's patch didn't "fix" the credits, he just changed the font so it displays on a regular resolution, and thus, making them readable.
The magic effects issue was not caused was sluffy.

If you want a perfect game, use retroarch. The game doesn't have a newgame +.

Alrighty, thanks!

Ah got it, didn't know sluffy had increased the size.

So the top racer patch has the same fixes as the top gear patch?  Because as far as I can remember, he only worked on the Top Gear one and never really updated the Top Racer one with those fixes.

Script Help and Language Discussion / Can anyone translate this word?

I tried using google translator, but I didn't get anything satisfactory.

This are the credits for the BS-X version of Dezaemon. The credits themselves are just "graphic" and "music" and the names seem to be pseudonyms. So what could that "music" credit be then?

pimpinelephant can you post the Top Racer patch you made that fixes the issues, but that does not include the thing about reducing the rom size? Peronsally I want to leave games with their default official size and just apply the fixes.


But yeah, you're right. :laugh:
I really should test these things myself, so I apologize for forcing that upon you guys. :P

No don't apologize, after all, you're the one doing the real work :)

I can't believe you were able to figure it out when sluffy couldn't. Gives me hope of you fixing every other game left hohohohoho ;)

F1 Pole Position (USA) - sound fix

F1 Pole Position 2 (Europe) - Region Patch plus sound fix

Thanks for the images. I changed the description to those Super Formation Soccer games. I really don't know what happened. I tested those games with different IDs and I remember getting off-screen menus. There's no way I could have tested 3 different games and made the same mistake on all 3.

As for the F1 Pole Position patches. F1 Pole 1: does the patch also fix the black screens? F1 Pole 2: I don't see any reports of the game having sound issues before? What were the issues exactly?

Wait a second, don't you have a SNESC? You can fix and test yourself :P

Or do you just want people to double check?

These 3 games are listed wrong on the lists they require preset 1016 and have some raised gamma when 512x224 menus are used, only the '94 versions have menus that run 512x448

Any pics? I tested those games myself and I remember the menus going off-screen.

Yeah, that looks fine to me! :)

You can see the slowROM/fastROM difference during the world map transitions by comparing Arkiokin's video:

Your video appears to show correct fastROM speeds!
Woohoo! :woot!:

Let's see if I can figure out Ganbare! Daiku no Gen-san now. ;)

Can you make an all in one patch for Act 2 or is you patch already an AIO?

And the top/bottom line issue is still present, correct? Any chance you could fix that too?

top3a (Sluffy's top3 + demo mode fix)

I didn't test the entire game, but from my limited testing, I think it should be fine.
I don't think my changes will interfere anywhere... hopefully.
I'm a total beginner at rom hacking, and Sluffy was an absolute genius, so don't expect much from me.

This one's for you Rey! :P Because I know this is one of your "wish-list" games.
I also never tested any of the undocumented games except for like one set, so this is to make up for that. :laugh:


Code: [Select]
The game begins Demo Mode by branching over 43 bytes and jumping to $81B8.

$00/8173 80 43       BRA $43    [$81B8]      A:0001 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81B8 A9 5C 00    LDA #$005C              A:0001 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81BB 85 00       STA $00    [$00:0000]   A:005C X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81BD 85 04       STA $04    [$00:0004]   A:005C X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc

The top3 patch overwrote $81B8 unfortunately, which broke Demo Mode.

$00/8173 80 43       BRA $43    [$81B8]      A:0003 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81B8 FF 9F EA 85 SBC $85EA9F,x[$85:099F] A:0003 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81BC 00 85       BRK #$85                A:0002 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:envmxdizC

Changed the branch to jump 45 bytes to $81BA instead, and then added a jump-to-subroutine instruction at branch location.

$00/8173 80 45       BRA $45    [$81BA]      A:0003 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$00/81BA 22 BB FF 9F JSL $9FFFBB[$9F:FFBB]   A:0003 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc

Wrote the original $81B8 instructions at this jump location along with a return-from-subroutine instruction.

$9F/FFBB A9 5C 00    LDA #$005C              A:0003 X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$9F/FFBE 85 00       STA $00    [$00:0000]   A:005C X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$9F/FFC0 85 04       STA $04    [$00:0004]   A:005C X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc
$9F/FFC2 6B          RTL                     A:005C X:1F00 Y:0080 P:enVmxdizc

The game now properly executes the instructions to display Demo Mode.

Haha, thanks a lot!

Hope it doesn't break anything later on :P

I just found a issue with the latest Top Gear patch (top3).

If you keep the title screen and don't touch any button, the screen turns black instead display the demo mode. However, this doesn't affect the music. I made the following video:

Edit. With the previous patch of Top Gear, the demo mode worked fine.

• J.League Soccer Prime Goal -- Looks fine.
• J.League Soccer Prime Goal 2 -- Looks fine.

• J.League Soccer Prime Goal 3 -- Looks fine.
• J.League Super Soccer -- I think this one needs Hi-Res ID for texts (, but that breaks the map screen before a match ( /
• J.League Super Soccer '95 - Jikkyou Stadium -- Looks fine.
• Jammes -- Looks fine.
• Janyuuki - Gokuu Randa -- Looks fine.

• JB The Super Bass -- Looks fine.
• Jigsaw Party -- Looks fine, I think this one is the Japan version of Pieces.
• Jikkyou Power Pro Wrestling '96 - Max Voltage -- Looks fine.
• Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu '94 -- Looks fine.
• Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu '96 - Kaimaku Ban -- Looks fine.

Thanks for the tests supa.

@reyvgm do you have a bundle of all patches?

Nope. I don't have any patches. The only bundles come from Robin's SFROM Tool pack.

Not to mention I have SFROM Tool compatible patches hosted here:

(Though I haven't added a lot of the recent niche Japanese stuff, I needed a break)

You can also open those files with WinRAR and find the .ips inside for manual patching. The .cnp files for SFROM Tool are simply a renamed .rar file containing the .ips and an XML file with patch information.

Now that there are no more new patches coming, I suggest you take a look at my doc and see which were the latest patches you haven't added. I have dates on each patch entry, so it should be easy to tell.

But I suggest you take a look at the entire doc because I remember you didn't add some patches until sluffy was finished with them, so it's entirely possible there are some old patches you haven't added to SFROM Tool yet.

Thats right but not at all, also runs with 0000 and any SA-1 Extra Byte but with blurry texts and music issuse.

I also tried with other combinations of IDs and Extra Bytes like 9C10+08 and it boots but messed up my console, main menu music sound with black screen when boot.  :P

So you're saying that using ID 1610 + an extra byte it runs better than using the official ID?

I have tested all SA-1 Extra Bytes and the only one wich looks to work fine with ID 1610 is 08.
But only apparently, it doesn't solve the music issuse with borders at all.

I was under the impression that Marvelous ONLY works with its official ID?

Sorry for the silence. Thought maybe if it's fake, this person would go away if I shut up for awhile, move away, change emails, aliases.

Updated short story:
- Got mailed a C&D with my real name and residence. Scary.
- Quietly read the feedback and thought maybe it's a bluff. Did some research in the downtime. Planning.
- My boss just terminated me today after my shift ended. Showing that same C&D letter as grounds for dismissal.

This is creepy and personal. I have to go. I enjoyed this as a hobby but this is too much. Thanks all!

But what the living hell is this? Who could hate you so much to do that? But didn't you explain to your boss that the C&D is fake? What did the C&D say you even did? "Hey sluffy's boss this guy makes patches for Canoe"? WTF? Nothing you are doing is illegal.

Thanks for the tests. Won't be posting anymore if sluffy is not coming back after this fake C&D stuff.
