Hey guys so I got this game through a Really Odd Method and was wondering if hard patching was my only choice? I would love just to soft patch it since I am more familiar with that. If hard patching is the only option can someone give me some instructions since I am failing hard at doing it? --- Rsteube, what you are doing is trolling...-Sigurd_Koopa I love irony.
i patched by game using SNESTOOL.exe but you should be able to patch the game using byuu's UPS patcher. The readme has pretty clear instructions
APPLYING THE PATCH
This patch file is distributed in UPS format. You will need a UPS patcher to use it. byuu has released UPS patchers built for Linux and Windows at his Web site http://byuu.org/. The patcher is open source, and it should be easy for someone to prepare an OS X-based patcher.
Start UPS and select your Der Langrisser V1.1 (J) ROM as the Input File. It must have a file size of 2,097,152 bytes. If you have a different file size, it means your ROM has a header. If you do not remove the header, then the patch cannot be applied.
Output File can be any file you wish to write to. You must select the supplied dl.ups file as your Patch File. Click "Apply" and your translated copy of Der Langrisser will be created.
