There's probably 20 CV1 hacks. Don't say you have no cv hacks to play. Don't be so impatient, it's a CV3 hack, there's alot more to do. Besides it ain't going to pay to be impatient once they hand the final rom over to Optomon. Music is gonna take a long time. Not to mention all the ASM hacks they want.
Yeah, i had to make the patch for the US version of the game cause the hack author of the other hack didn't make a patch for the US version. That's the one I'd be playing. Someone else already found the address so I just did the hex editing and made a patch and gave that guy the credit.
If you didn't do any of the hacking and just made the patch they want you to credit who actually did the work. I submitted a few patches for other people cause they found addresses and I just made them into patches for people to enjoy.
I wonder if Optomon wants to do only cover tracks. I think in his last released hack he only covered one song. If he wants to do original music you should let him. There's probably 8-bit covers of these songs on youtube anyway if you just wanna know what it would sound like.
I guess I never caught if you guys said you are working on the US or JP version. I imagine Optomon would want the best so maybe you guys are using the JP version?
I've been using XDelta for bigger games. It's also useful for Sonic hacks cause alot of poeple shift data around. IPS patches would just copy all the moved code. XDelta recognizes if somethings been moved and don't copy it.
