Hey Lugia, would it be possible for you to maybe change the 163 mapper that's causing this game to not work for at least 75% of the people attempting to play it, to something else that's actually compatible with at least most emulators.
many emulators support mapper 163. for more on what a NES mapper is, give THIS
, and THIS
try loading a clean copy of the game into emus that support mapper 163 and you should not have any issues. the problem seems to be with the latest patch. nestopia, for example, loads the patched game to a black screen. yet View > Image info shows that the ROM is loaded, that soft patching is enabled (on-the-fly IPS patching, a requirement of Nestopia 1.40), and that mapper 163 is being used. After a save is present, NesDS also loads to a black screen. however, with NesDS if you simply toggle the "Pure Soft" graphic mode, the image will display again.
@Lugia2009 you may want to consider removing the english translation patch from your archive. i am reading about a lot of people who are having issues because they applied both patches. you have to assume that a majority of people are not going to read your readme, and those that do may not reach the end. i think it is great that you are showing respect to the original project by including that file, but that file is not part of your project. at the very least, consider putting that patch in its own directory with its own readme file.
