CT translation won't play
« on: February 24, 2008, 05:02:04 pm »
This seems like the proper place to put this... I tried applying the translation patch, using both headered and non - headered, and it simply won't work in either zsnes or SNES9x. The headered version shows the first screen, but when I push start, it fades to a certain point and the game freezes. The other version crashes zsnes. My original ROM plays fine. Has anyone else reported this problem?

It's probable you have bad rom dump, a common issue that causes glitches in patches, and sometimes otherwise wouldn't be detected. If you would, please send me a link to the rom in question via PM so that I may help you.

I've tried several different ROMs with the same results. Maybe I have a bad patch? I downloaded it from the link that Zeality posted on GameFAQs. I'm using Lunar IPS to patch it.

Question - do you pacth the Japanese or English ROM? (I've tried both with the same results.)

You patch the English ROM. I know that from my old game.

Um... uh... have you ever patched this particular ROM before? That might mess it up. (my CT ROM folder had so many copies of the original game because I wouldn't put more than one patch on a single ROM... I'd imagine it would make your computer go 'splodie.)

Uh... what version of ZSNES are you using?

Um... if all else fails... bug ZeaLitY.

No, I'm starting with a fresh ROM every time. I'm using zsnesw 1.4.2.

Huh.
I say you go to the website and get the most recent version of ZSNES. That might just be the problem. (yay, I'm helpful!)

They are currently on version 1.5.1, so it seems you haven't got the newest addition after all.
This will most likely fix the problem.

Ah! Finally! The unheadered patch now works. Thanks for the replies. Maybe it was zsnes.

Yeah, I had that problem (screen freezing after pressing start), but it was because I was trying to patch to the Japanese ROM...I used ZSNES on the NA (U) ROM and it works fine.
