ROM hacks such as hacks that increase the game's difficulty, rearrange all the stages to create an entirely new game, or replace the dialogue with perverted humor.
All you need to do is make sure the game and its English patch have the same file name don't change their file extensions. They both must be unzipped and in the same folder. Here's an example:. If there's more than one patch: Read the ReadMe file contained within the English patch's zip file to learn of the purpose of each patch. But if you download the patch from my site, then look under the patch's download link for a note, it'll tell you the exact patch you need to use. Mac users: The Mac version of Snes9X has this auto-patching feature as well. With manual patching, the patch is permanently applied onto the ROM.
Since manual patching is permanent it's best to keep a backup of your ROM just in case. The patching utility most people prefer is Lunar IPS. Click the following link to download it:. The only tricky part is that prior to using UniPatcher, the English patch and the ROM both must be extracted from their zip files. Unlike Windows, Android can't extract zip files by default. You'll need something like Astro File Manager to do that. You can also download UniPatcher from RomHacking.
As I stated previously in auto-patching, the Mac version of Snes9X has an auto-patching feature as well. And then to do manual patching you need to use Multipatch. It's for Mac OS X, and you can download it below.
They normally state this in the directions, but not always. That really sucks if you download a patch and it doesn't come with any documentation or a ReadMe text file.
