Hello. Im new to visiting a topic board here, but have downloaded several patches over the past 4-5 years.
Lately Ive been interested in learning how to make my own patches, but dont know where to begin. There is a new editor in progress for Final Fantasy VI Advance right now (FF6AE), and Ive been working on hacking the rom for awhile. When I were to complete my hack, how do I make a patch. I have never tried. Lunar IPS has a create your own patch option, but how does it work?
I know how to use an editor to modify numbers, but dont understand map, tile, graphic, and other fearures. So I guess Im asking 2 questions. How do I make a patch, and how do I use these other features that are in most editors. I dont even know how to edit Super Mario Bros 1. I have tried a few times and cant get objects to go where I want. The interface for placing objects in SMB1, SMW, Zelda 1 and others seem very difficult.
The reason I decided to finally join this site is because I have a few hacks in progress, and they might be worthy of making a patch. In Final Fantasy 5 and 6 SNES, I have edited characters, items, equipment, magic, and monsters. When it comes to editing numerical values or script, Im pretty good at it. When it comes to placing objects with these editors, I feel lost.
Any advice would be great. Thanks.
