Having trouble patching a game!!!
« on: October 17, 2020, 02:07:22 pm »
I'm very frustrated at the moment. I cannot get a patch to work. The patch is here: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4498/
it is a Sailor Moon fighting style game for the SNES. I have the original SFC file and tried to patch it with my patching tool and my emulator will not play it. Is there anything i'm doing wrong?

The vast majority of SNES patching problems come down to headers.  If your ROM has a header, try removing it before applying the patch; otherwise, try adding a header and applying the patch.  Also, make sure your ROM has a checksum that matches the one listed on the page.
