PJ64 won't load edited romhack

I recently discovered a SM64 hack that let's the player change gravity direction with the press of a button.
Since it isn't that useful in the original game, that gave me an idea to make my own levels for it.
The problem is, when I try to open it in a Level Editor like SM64 Rom Manager, the emulator won't load.
Any ideas? I'm using Project64.
Every time I get an idea for a new romhack I always seem to run into a big problem that stops me from completing it.
So far I've had corrupted ROMs, damaged carts, load errors, import errors, BSOD errors, hard drive errors and more errors.
I wonder what will happen next...

Does it just say it's loading infinitely? The game's bootloader will loop and softlock on a checksum fail. Interpreter mode fixed this, but you still need to change the CRC to get it to work elsewhere.

Seems like this tool should fix incorrect checksums for N64 roms:

Correct me if I'm wrong.
