Have anyone tried using this https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/614/
with an original (untranslated) Japanese ROM?
The readme says to "Use this patch on an original JPN Star Ocean ROM" regarding 96Mbit_SO_JPN.xdelta
I have tried 96Mbit_SO_JPN.xdelta with multiple rom dumps and it always returned "target window checksum mismatch" error. I also tried ignoring the checksum mismatch, but the resulting rom, when testing with Sleuth, would be filled with graphical glitches.
Now the weird thing is, I tried the JPN patch with a translated rom and it successfully got patched and testing it with Sleuth shows it working in its original Japanese!
So I'm wondering, is this normal? Should the readme be changed to note that both the JPN and EN patches should be used with a translated rom? Or should another JPN xdelta patch be made for use with an untranslated rom?
