No no no, no ROMs. Download Lunar IPS and make a patch by providing the program with the original ROM and then your new ROM, then you can upload the .ips file generated.

Did you try click the "URL Only" part? I think you can upload it there.

Nah cant upload IPS files there apparently. Seems to be for text files and such.

The file needs to be compressed to one of the accepted file types. I use 7zip (.7z).
