Important info for patching (+ review)Reviewed By: tsubasaplayer16 on 20 Nov 2022
The readme isn’t very helpful on what exact file you need to patch (it has to be compressed to correctly identify it, or so I read), so here are the hashes, it has to be track 1 (from my tests anyway):
You can easily use RDHN’s online ROM Hasher (or similar) to identify it (but ignore the incorrect platform labeling, the hashes are what’s important). Worked for me. https://www.romhacking.net/hash/
As for my review of this patch, it’s a delight to play so far (because I prefer original JP dub with proper/good EN translation), but I really, REALLY don’t like how there’s no option to change the translated JP SOTN title screen into the NA SOTN title screen (the translated title screen was implemented, so why not have the option to put in the NA title screen for some people?). Hopefully someone will take the time to make an addendum hack to make that happen as an option.
