IPS Peek, the IPS (International Patching System) patch viewer, has been updated to version 0.4.0. This is the most significant update IPS Peek has received since it was originally introduced.
The following notable features have been added (among others):
* File linking (with patched file difference highlighting): open a patch as normal, then click the "Link File" icon in the "Data View" toolbar to link a file. This will enable a special mode, where the patched data is applied to the linked file and highlighted (color-coded) data changes are shown. In this mode, yellow highlights indicate new data applied by a patch record. Red highlights signify when the patch record expands the ROM before writing (if you see red, then something may be wrong with the compatibility of the patch and the file.) Gray highlights represent data that is cut off by the Lunar IPS truncate extension (CHS). Clicking a patch record in the list will jump to and select the corresponding patched data.
* IPS Peek now supports two layouts: vertical or horizontal (available in the "View" menu.)
* IPS Peek can now be used as a basic hex viewer for any file.
