Floating IPS is an IPS patcher, intended to replace Lunar IPS.
- Can apply multiple patches at once. (Can’t create multiple patches at once, though; make a batch file if you need that.)
- Generated patches are (usually) (slightly) smaller (both LIPS and Flips are fully capable of applying patches generated with the other.)
- Can apply and create patches through the command line (note that it’s a hybrid console/GUI apps, and cmd doesn’t really like that, so the output gets misplaced. It acts sanely if called from a batch file.)
- Can apply a patch and run it in an emulator without forcing the user to create temporary files.
- Can handle files containing characters outside the 8-bit character set.
- Can apply and create BPS patches.
- Includes a Linux build
Mostly the same but better.Reviewed By: Chronosplit on 07 Feb 2021
Making smaller patches and the ability to apply multiples is always appreciated. When applying a patch FLIPS will also let you make the patched file as a separate one, perfect for when you’re not sure if something’s going to work right.
Making BPS patches using this is pretty slow going if you don’t prioritize speed in the options, but it applies them just fine. Having two patchers in one is handy, especially when it surpasses both of them.
