I'm trying to apply the Nes hack Solomon no Kagi 2 - Kitsune Attacks (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5940/). I have the correct rom as suggested:
ROM SHA-1: 1C05D3734EAAC1390638A9FDB22192F0A53FAFB9

However, when I use flips to apply the bps patch, it says "this patch is not intended for this ROM". Any ideas?

It's resolved. It actually needs the rom with:
SHA-1: 507F0A2C77108A345DF0BFC13EB43029AC9F8B4E
CRC32: F033B827


It's probably a header difference or something.
For NES games, there is a difference between the "ROM" data and the "file" data. The difference is whether the header should be calculated. That is because, unlike other consoles which can be usually emulated without headers, NES emulation currently mandates headers (which aren't part of the original cartridge data) be appended to be able to determine how to run the game correctly.

ROM CRC32: EEE6314E is the actual ROM data (according to the FCEUX Message Log) without the header calculated.

CRC32: F033B827 is including the header data in the calculation.

I am having this exact same problem. Where did you find the correct ROM to use?
