Title: Playing the Earthbound Halloween Hack (and hacks in general)
Post by: MrNegotiator on February 09, 2016, 11:53:10 pm
Hello everyone, I'm new to the whole rom hacking scene, and I have no idea what i'm doing, so I'd like some help. Specifically, I'd love to play the Halloween Earthbound hack created by Toby Fox. I've already downloaded the hack, and i have a rom of earthbound, but what do i do next? I'm using a Mac book pro.

If it's an IPS file get something like lunarIPS or Tsukuyomi and then open it, if using Tsukuyomi, it has a button "apply patch to existing file". Click that, then click browse for "UPS patch to apply". Look for the patch and select it. Then look for the rom for the "Target file to apply patch to" box. I suggest making a backup of the rom in case it messes up or you do it wrong, or don't have the right one, etc etc.
