Can't Create PPFs!
« on: April 12, 2020, 09:55:34 am »
  Hello all. I have been trying to make a PPF patch for my hack Castlevania - Dracula X Chronicles: SOTN Remix. But I have run into error after error. Tried PPF Studio, PPF-O-Matic and at some point even tried Xdelta. The last error I received from PPF Studio said the ortiginal rom and the modified one are not the same size.

  Does anyone know anything about creating PPF? There are plenty of tutorials about applying patches, but none about how to create a PPF when roms are different sized. Help please.  :-\

If you change the size of the game after your modifications, PPF is not going to work. Use xdelta instead. You can use either Delta Patcher (not lite) or xdelta UI.
