how to update the crc for a pokemon stadium 2 romhack?
« on: May 24, 2020, 10:12:28 pm »
so, im trying to get a rom to boot on p64 but rn64crc.exe -u doesnt work on my computer for some reason? is it because i use windows 10?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Project64 2.3\pokemon stadium 2 revamp>rn64crc.exe -u
Access is denied.

and if i just type rn64crc.exe i get
C:\Program Files (x86)\Project64 2.3\pokemon stadium 2 revamp>rn64crc.exe

If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say your Program Files folder requires administrator privileges for write access.  It's not really a Windows 10 problem.  Ideally, you should store your ROMs somewhere in your User profile, like C:\Users\Whatever\roms.

You might be able to get the program to run as-is, but you'll need to open the command prompt with administrator privileges.  You can do that by right-clicking the Command Prompt shortcut in your Start menu and selecting "Run as administrator".  But this is of course not recommended as you can easily mess up things accidentally from such a command prompt.

That's a completely different error message.  Are you doing something completely different?  Are you still running rn64crc from the command line?

And where did you get this program from? Because the version at https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=8799 absolutely runs on 64-bit Windows.

If you are copying the program to a different directory on your hard drive, are you copying DLPORTIO.DLL and DLPORTIO.SYS along with RN64CRC.EXE /
