I want to patch the Final Fantasy 1 & 2 cart to get the ultimate ROM, which I plan to repro on a real Final Fantasy 1 & 2 Famicom donor cart.
I'm having trouble with the final step of the process, the update #2.
From what I understand, the process is to take the Final Fantasy 1 & 2(J).nes rom and then patch the NeoDemiforce Translation of 1 & 2 (where 1 crashes if you talk to anyone and both share the same save file) and then patch over top that with the Unofficial Update #1. Finally, you patch over the Unofficial Update #2 with Unofficial Update #2.
Except that whenever I do that, the file goes from 512KB to 256KB and Final Fantasy II crashes upon bootup. Am I doing something wrong, or is the Unofficial Update #2 broken in some way?
Here's the links:
