Need help submitting nes rom hack
« on: October 04, 2017, 11:27:03 pm »
Hello!

I've submitted a hack a long time ago but i dont remember what i did anymore. I want to submit my new nes rom hack and im wondering if i can upload the rom itself or do i need to do something else?

No no no, no ROMs. Download Lunar IPS and make a patch by providing the program with the original ROM and then your new ROM, then you can upload the .ips file generated.

Did you try click the "URL Only" part? I think you can upload it there.

The file needs to be compressed to one of the accepted file types. I use 7zip (.7z).
