Forgive me if this is a stupid question or I'm just plain doing it wrong, but I patched the original FFVI rom (Final Fantasy VI.smc) with the latest patch (2.0, newer opera, bug-fixes and add-ons), and now am trying to play it on my homebrew Wii.
I say "trying" because every time I select the rom from the menu, it fades to a black screen and goes no further. I can think of four things that could be causing this:
1) The ROM was corrupted to begin with.
2) I applied the patch incorrectly and corrupted the ROM.
3) The ROM has nothing wrong with it and instead it's the console/emulator (SNES9x GX, if you're wondering)
or 4) The patch itself is corrupted.
Given that I didn't see any immediate "OOPS" messages on the messageboard, I'm going to assume it's not the last option. Could someone help me out here?
I just patched it to a completely new ROM, this time with the same results. I applied the recommended patch (bugfixes + add-ons + opera), just like before. The console still operates, allowing me to pull up the menu screen and exit the rom itself, so that rules out issues with the emulator (I believe. I'm not sure, I'm still a relative noob to this.)
I didn't have this issue when patching a fresh ROM of FFVI with 1.96, so I'm not sure what it could be that's causing this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
