QuoteHello everyone, I'm a new member of this community. I recently downloaded the Super Metroid Hack 0.3. I applied the IPS thing to my existing Super Metroid ROM, started playing the hack like normal, was having a great time and everything, but soon I realized that, whenever I paused the game, I couldn't get to the Dark Samus subscreen (the one you access by pressing R), because the screen would simply fade to black and the game would automatically freeze. At first I thought it was a one-time glitch, so I didn't pay much attention to it; I just restarted my game and resumed playing. But then I tried it again, and the same thing happened: I pause the game, press R to go to the Dark Samus subscreen, the screen blacks out and that's it, I can't do anything else (the music would still play, though). The control is completely unresponsive, effectively forcing me to reset the game or use my most recent savestate. Now, I wouldn't mind so much about that particular screen, but then I read about how you need to switch on and off certain power-ups such as the dark beam to make the gameplay actually easier. Well, I just got the dark beam, and I can already tell it's kinda lame for attacking certain types of enemies. So what can I do? Has this happened to any of you guys before? Is there anything I can do to fix this or am I just screwed?
Quotedoes the header have to be removed from the original Super Metroid ROM before applying the IPS patch
Quoteor can I directly remove it from the Phazon hack ROM once it has been created?
QuoteAm I gonna lose all my progress if I create a new (unheadered) ROM hack? (I'm relatively new to hack playing, so all this header and unheader stuff confuses me a little bit sorry
QuoteBut the thing is that sort of error usually causes games to crash much sooner than what it sounded like. Usually not even playable at all.
QuoteWhat happened was that I've been playing the game on an old Snes9x version (Ver. 1.40 IIRC)
