What's the trick to applying patches like the one that fixes the encounter rate bug for this game? I won't go into the details because I feel like I have tried literally everything to get any of the patches for this game to work and not once did it change even a single byte. I followed the instructions very closely and tried every other thing I could think of and didn't get shit. Anybody else had trouble with this?
EDIT: Nevermind. I asked my brother and I guess he had the same problem with another hack. Like him, I begrudgingly installed the latest version of Java and the patching operation finally did something.
