What is SNESren 2.04 ?
« on: June 10, 2015, 12:42:19 am »
Hello there,
I tried to find what was it about, but all google search just show me the actual hack's page.

For example : http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1599/ it says Super Mario World (U) [!].smc - SNESren 2.04, I tried with this rom version but, not working. The thing that I don't know what SNESren 2.04 is may be the problem.

So, what is SNESren 2.04?

Thank you a lot for your help.

Edit : I patched a lot of game already, so I basically know the move :p

Looks to me like it's a program that was used to rename SNES roms (SNESren[ame]) to their proper file name (based on headers, maybe??). Can't find much about it, though.

So I'm guessing this means that you need the rom "Super Mario World (U) [!].smc" which was determined to be that by the program SNESren v. 2.04

Why don't you just try checking the CRC32 or MD5 hash instead to make sure it matches?

That's just the name of the database, that the rom originates from, like GoodSnes or NoIntro. This, however, should not be your concern. You just need to look at the CRC32 ID number. And look on the left if it is header or no header rom. SMW roms are usually all headered and this one also requires a Headered US original SMW rom with the standard CRC32= B19ED489.

So just drop your original rom into this Hash program
http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1002/

and check the IDs. If they match, the patching Will work, if they don't match, the patching Will not work. If you have the U (which is US) version of the original rom, it is usually a header problem. You can add/remove headers with this program

It was a header problem. So I could make it works :) I see for SNESren!

I really appreciate your help, both of you!
