"Time to test your ability to follow basic instructions". hehehe
but seem oblivious to the fact that they have neither legal or moral standing to claim any kind of ownership over anything they've done. It literally doesn't belong to them!
The code presented in the form of the patch belongs literally to me alone. I never released anything done by original authors.
I'd be flattered and amused if someone made a repro of something I'd worked on
Then why don't you let me sell your car for 15,000$. I would be happy - I gained 15,000$ by selling your car, a customer is happy - he bought a car. And you - who are now without your car and without money - would be flattered.
What beyond-dumb ideas.
The only reason why I'm supporting Puzzledude on this issue is because I want to gain his trust so that one day he will send me a copy of the IQ test hack that is compatible with real hardware
The game was glued together from Lorom parts into one Exlorom. No version of glued Lorom (ie compatible with everything) exists.
that I can then make repros of my own and sell those.
no, no, no
If a hack was created, but no one plays it. Was it ever really created.
If you don't like/play the game, someone else will; if nobody likes/plays the game, god will.
It'd be cool if the program I'm forced to use as part of the DRM even worked.
Do we have any quality control rules? Like, if a hack is not reasonably playable, can it be refused?
The DLL was included in the package.
Let me tell again, the game works! Why do you think I tested it and suffering while doing the testing. The game was played through from beginning to end around 10 times!! on both emus!, which obviously work.
You just have Your Computer Messed-Up.
Original snes9x did not have this DLL included at all. You had to find it online and put it into the System folder of Windows. I fixed all that for your convenience.
Also do note: if you don't have directX (a whole bunch of DLLs) or Framework installed, which you don't, you really can not play any games on your comp.
Some dumb protection-filled antiviruses and Windows7, 8, 10 hiper dumb protection measurements will also refuse for you to use any additional/manually added DLLs, unless you "register" them (this is very difficult to do and requires the use of CMD command line to put the DLL "to the list" in the Register).
This hyper dumb move by Microsoft is not protection at all, it simply dissallows you to use completely usable programs.
Try to run a harmless program called Add-ons by Euclid, which can make Alttp sprites stronger. On XP= no problems, Win7 and above - all DLLs blcked (manual registering needed).
So you see this really has nothing to do with this game, or this emulator, it is just Windows refusing the DLL needed to run the program.
See this DLL is in the folder itself - no need for Windows to read from the System folder (where it might or not might be - based on whether you installed DirectX or not).But your comp/Operating system is obviously dumb enough to not run it, since it sees as something alienated, and requires for you to register the DLL with a CMD command, so that this info gets written into the REG.The one to blame for your problem is - Microsoft.
Knowing the above, imagine how beyond-dumb your statement is that my hack needs qulity control.
What does a hack have to do with this. Absolutely nothing - you have a problem with the emulator, as a result of a paranoid-programmed Windows, or its settings!, or you don't have DirectX.
If you are unable to run a program on your comp, you can always use Zsnes, which is less complex, and does not require such a DLL to be registered.

Note: Any user who has his Operating System installed properly ie normally, should NOT encounter this problem, since by default the DLL is run automatically in concordance with the EXE in the same folder.
Of course if you have a messed-up comp/OP, who can not run simple programs in a normal fashionable way and no DirectX (needed to play ANY Game), then it is another story.
Copy pasting the EDLL.dll of the program to
migh also solve the problem. But like I said, if this fixes the problem, the Operating system is just dumb/or has dumb settings. The registering of dll might still be needed nevertheless.
