I am torn between these two Digimon World 2 rom hacks, and ideally would like to get the benefits from both (General Improvements & Hard Mode).https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5358/https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2587/
My understanding is that one cannot simply apply multiple Xdelta patches after the other like you could with .IPS patches, and while I suppose it's possible through GUIFY to do a file by file comparison in order to manually carry over the fewer changes made in the Hard Mode hack (8kb patch compared to the General Improvement patch being 48kb or so), I can only get a dummy file worth 36 MB to show up on Ultra ISO, the rest of DW2s files are hidden...
I am sure either of the patches would be enjoyable on their own, but I have spent far too long on this issue for the past week to give up now
, unless it turns out to be impossible, then I would obviously concede, lol.
I am extremely grateful in advance to anyone who can help me put this issue to rest be it for better or worse
EDIT 1: I have two GUIFFY File Compare Reports; Each compares an unpatched Digimon World 2 .BIN to one of the patched versions (Hard Mode or Improvement Hack), I can't seem to upload attachments yet, but I am very eager to share the full reports in case it helps; In the meantime here are the highlights.
File Compare finished... 16 Changes: 3,642,579 Lines Matched | 146 Lines Deleted | 163 Lines Inserted
File Compare finished... 48 Changes: 3,642,348 Lines Matched | 377 Lines Deleted | 443 Lines Inserted
