Title: SMB3Mix Issue!!! Need help please!!!
Post by: dedennededenne on August 12, 2022, 09:29:43 AM
I'm trying to play SMB3Mix on my OpenEmu emulator, but it keeps saying "Invalid File." I don't know what to do to fix this issue. What do I do? Please, pretty please, help me.

What is the file you are trying to open?
Is it the patch itself or a patched ROM?

when I downloaded the game it came in a folder with two files, each of them not working on the emulator, so I decided to combine the folder into one zip, and replaced the zip with .nes. still, it did not work.
(btw: it is not patched as far as I am aware. im still very confused on this whole situation so im sorry if I sound confusing)

What in the absolute heck?, that is not how you do it at all,

for this you will need the rom Super Mario Bros 3 prg0 .nes (name might be slightly different but prg0 is what you want, not prg1), then go here https://www.romhacking.net/patch/index.php?file=hacks/2068&patch_name=Super+Mario+Bros.+3Mix++hack+vRev+2B&crc=85A79D9C hit choose file button, then select the nes rom and choose to apply the patch, the nes file it creates is what you need to play the game. You will probably want to rename it to something like SMB3mix.nes just to make it easier to find when you import it to openemu.  Note if you for whatever reason can't find prg0 and can only find prg1 go to patch file, and click the arrow and switch it to prg1 before attempting to patch it.

I've followed these instructions, but every single time, it always says "Invalid File."

Not sure why you're saying this? Nothing wrong with using prg1 with the appropriate patch.

Please be explicit as to exactly what you did. Does your "Super Mario Bros 3 prg0 .nes" ROM work in your emulator?

I was trying to make it as simple as possible as frankly this person seems a bit confused, it defaults to prg0 if you use the online patcher so the prg0 rom would require one less step to mix them up

In openemu or are you getting an error when you try to patch it?
