Sword Master - Fixed Samples

Hack of Sword Master


Sword Master is an action platformer game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It is set in a medieval fantasy setting and features sword fighting and parallax scrolling.

The samples in this game are notorious for their low quality. However, it was recently discovered that this is the result of bit-reversal, an error where the bits in each byte of the samples are in reverse order of how they should be. This hack corrects the bit order for all of the samples, restoring them to how they were intended to be.

You will need an IPS patch installer to patch the rom such as Lunar IPS.
