IPS32 Patch Format Documentation?

Hey there. I'm trying to add IPS32 support to my project:

I can't seem to find any documentation on the format differences between IPS and IPS32 online. Does anyone have a document on it?

FAST6191 appears to detail the differences it uses. Mostly seems to be a different magic stamp and different end of file, and a slightly different read length perhaps but I am not great at java.
Interestingly that patcher looks like it will expand files as well which is often a failure (though some would say outside the spec) of IPS files.

All that said I am not sure I have ever seen an IPS32 in the wild.


Thanks! I don't use Java either, but thankfully, C# is similar. From what I've seen, it looks like different magic, like you said, as well as 32 bit offsets. I think Lunar IPS supports the changing of the file size.

Thanks again!
