About Addendums patching
« on: September 27, 2017, 06:21:36 am »
before I send in my mini fix of Dr Wario patch I've did and I've basically disabled the crash check (if year been altered) and done a few fixed to the title to restore the 1 to one player and such.

I basically need to confirm this is counted as a Addendum of dr Wario or not

here's my fixes I've done. (see image)



it's just restoring the 1 for one player and changes to the year and disabled anti-piracy checks.

If you first need to apply the other patch before your patch, then it's an addendum. If you only need your patch, that's not an addendum, but you also shouldn't do it because it'd be someone else's patch.

I see I did the Dr Wario patch to Dr Mario[T1] rom and done the fixes myself and I'm gonna test out my fixes and see what it would do if I just patched with the fixes of the rom with these mini fixes of mine.

To me this looks weird without the 1 on one player

Wait, did you do the original patch? So it's not an addendum then, just a new version of the same patch.

If its for the original game, then its a bugfix. But if its a bugfix (or an improvement) for an existing hack, its an addendum.
