I think I managed to make Terranigma work decently with the ivarr87 patch.
Down below in his reddit post he links a second fix, made to work with a headered rom.
What must be done is :
- Apply a header
- Apply ntsc patch
- Apply his Canoe fix #2 (posted in the same thread)
I didn't apply the 8x16 patch because I don't really like, it seems to work anyway.
If it doesn't work then make sure your game dump is the same as what he links in his thread, a different file may give you either a black screen followed by a c7 error or distorted glitchy sounds (usually happens with an unheadered rom and his Canoe fix#1)
The game seems to run and sound fine, maybe not perfectly but far from the glitchy mess it was on my first try.
I'm so glad to see this thread again! I'm definitely going to take a look into SNES Mini hacking. I was at a Retro Game Expo on Sunday and I saw a ton of SNES games worth playing so this will be the perfect way to try them out.
I may have jumped the gun and not correctly applied the NTSC patch to Terranigma in my haste to test it out, which would account for audio issues. I'll be sure to test it more thoroughly when I get home from work.
Wow, thanks for moving the thread to Era! It was my favorite thread these days. Also thanks for posting all these good boxarts!
I will try to get Illusion of Gaia to run at the weekend. I'm not sure yet what to do with that .ips file, anyone can please exlpain it?
