SNES /SFC Must have game conversions and requests

Postby R9delta » September 14th, 2014, 12:33 pm

As you all may know Super NES games have gotten pretty expensive over the past few years. Seeing as I feel like no self-respecting gamer should have to pay $180+ for a cartridge of Earthbound when Nintendo doesn't see a single penny of it anyway, I've put together some patches for the much cheaper Super Famicom alternatives that are compatible with the Retron 5.


Note: In case I don't always get back to this thread to update and fill in patches here as I make them, this is the main database for them:

So how does a person actually use these on the Retron 5? Once I download them then what?

It's a simple enough process requiring the original game cartridge listed above and the patch downloaded to an SDcard. Once inserted you open the game menu from the main menu the choose Patches and load the patch file. Someone will likely put up a quick tutorial soon enough. :)

If anybody would like a quick tutorial of how these were made and would like to do it themselves, here's a description of an example I did and a video to go along with it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cmc6Bu3LsD4

Keep in mind on the video I frequently test the roms and/or patches using SNES9x. This is not a required step but it might make life on you easier by checking your progress as you're going along. On to the steps I did:

Tetris Attack (US) to Panel De Pon (JPN but Translated):
On my PC I have a rom of Tetris Attack (US) and Panel De Pon (JPN). The first thing I want to do is translate that copy of Panel De Pon. I downloaded and used the translation patch from here:

http://www.romhacking.net/translations/1144/

I opened it up and copied PDP English Patch (v1.0 - nonheader).ips to the same directory with my 2 roms I need...Tetris Attack and an untranslated Panel De Pon.

This is where the fun starts. See for the Retron 5 to successfully use a patch that takes one game and convert it to another game the rom i'm converting from needs to have what's called the "header" removed. That is because on the Retron 5 all games are played/dumped as headerless, so therefore the rom you're working with on your PC to make the patch also need to be headerless as well. Keep in mind this only applies to SNES games.

Here is the program that I use to accomplish that:
http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/593/

Since the Panel De Pon translation patch I'm using also requires a headerless rom I also need to remove not only the header for Tetris Attack but Panel De Pon as well. I therefore then use the header removing program as linked above and open it along with Panel De Pon. I choose to remove the header (the option will be grayed out if the rom already has no header) and the program saves the new headerless Panel De Pon as a new file. I then delete the old one afterwards.

This is where the first patching comes in. I use Lunar IPS to do both my actual patching. here is the link to it:
http://fusoya.eludevisibility.org/lips/

Using lunar IPS I patch the new headless Panel De Pon rom with the translation patch i had downloaded earlier. After that Panel De Pon is done. Now I want to convert Tetris Attack to Panel De Pon (translated). Using the rom header program I downloaded earlier I open Tetris Attack just like i did with Panel De Pon earlier and remove the header. I save it as a new file and delete the old one. Now we're on to the final steps.

Using Lunar IPS again I click "Create IPS patch". I choose the headerless Tetris Attack as my original UNMODIFIED file for Lunar IPS and I then use Panel De Pon translated as my MODIFIED file and then save the patch that is created. This patch is thrown onto an SD card to be used on the Retron 5. From there it's simple, I load up my Tetris Attack cartridge and use the patch I made, it now loads up as Panel De Pon!

I'm trying to use the conversion for Donkey Kong Country 3 but I'm getting a black screen after the title screen. I can hear sound but can't see anything. Anyone else had any luck with it?

You might have the 1.1 version of the game. The patch was made using v1.0. I'll get you a fix tonight when I get off work if one isn't out by then.
