Hello. I would like to upload a patch of my developing hack, but I am not sure how. I am aware that I need Lunar IPS, and I downloaded that to download a patch for Link to the Past...

Anyway, I would like to upload a patch, and I would like a mini-tutorial based on how to do it...

EDIT: Sorry, I did not see the other topic that answers this, but I was also wondering if it would be possible to upload both Mac and Microsoft compatible patches.

Thank you in advance.

Have a nice day.

I'm going to say no. Patches are only compatible based on the program that patches them... If the patcher isn't compatible with both MAC and Windows it can't be helped. There also needs to be an emulator to play the game.

Ultimately unless you're willing to port patchers and a very good emulator to Macintosh, it's going to be difficult making it multi-platform. Then again, more recent additions of Macs can run Windows programs so that isn't a problem for some people; for older Mac users, they're probably depressed because of all the Windows programs they can't use.

The patch file itself isn't really OS dependent, and there is an IPS patching tool for MAC already so you're good to go just posting the patch you made with Lunar IPS.

^There probably is an IPS Mac patcher (not sure what it is, although he should probably include it with his patch) however if he uses another patch format, it could get a little meh-- for example, the not-as-common-yet-better .ups format.

Coding in Java tends to solve the multi-platform issue, IIRC.

Oh, thank you for the help, both of you. I will post a link to a patch soon, but I want to do a few more things first.

By the way, could either of you please suggest a website to upload the patch onto?

Have a nice day.

Stupid flood control...

http://www.sendspace.com
http://www.megaupload.com
http://www.fileden.com *
http://www.mediafire.com

You could also make your own website at webs.com and use that to host small files-- it allows for direct links. Just a quick option.

*You need to register, but it allows for direct links

It's so nice having my own place to upload files

Thanks. I think I will try Webs.com (since I have a feeling that I might be able to have a bit more than uploaded files?).

EDIT: I have decided to use Megaupload instead.

Have a nice day.

By the way, that is like my mini-signature. However, I mean it when I say it.

Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
Yesterday at 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
Yesterday at 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
Yesterday at 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
Fox: part, ofcourse.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:15 PM
Fox: 0200274C = Hmm... Stuff happens here when you use Cyclone around bushes. (These cause tile replacements, and setting event 0 to those tiles.) - And I guess this kept here so it can be scanned after battle. (To re-update the map.) So here is my fun thought (assuming if it is even possible, or even convenient if so.) ... Are there any events from other maps that could be disabled do to using Cyclone on bushes + Retreat glitch? I'll need to do some testing to make sure this isn't an oversight on my

Fox: And the chance for a Djinni battle is 50%.
