Star Ocean no S-DD1/96Mbit hack

Hack of Star Ocean

Description:

This hack for Star Ocean removes the need for the S-DD1 chip consequently expanding the ROM size to 96Mbits (12MB) to allow you to play the ROM on real hardware where it’d otherwise be impossible.

Backup units and flash carts are not compatible with the S-DD1 chip. An original Star Ocean ROM will not run on such devices. Since the expanded ROM does not require the S-DD1 chip, you can load it onto a backup unit such as the GF7, onto a flash cart, or put it on a custom cart.

This hack is not meant to be used in emulators. In fact, since this game uses an unusual mapper most emulators wont run this hacked version. Super Sleuth is a SNES emulator that is compatible with this mapper, use it to test your patched ROM. Again, this hack is not intended to be used on emulators. If you don’t plan on playing Star Ocean on anything other than an emulator, this hack isn’t for you.

There are two patches included, one for the original Japanese version and another for an already DeJap translated version. The two patches are not interchangeable. If you want to translate and use this hack, you must use the translation patch FIRST.
