Recommended Posts

After I patch the rom, the emulator will not load it. I use ZSNES. It will say Bad ROM. I used 2 different roms and Lunar IPS patcher. please help.

Are you checking the header? I haven't tried Super Thracia 776, but if you apply a patch meant for a header to an unheadered rom, or vice versa, it's not gonna work.

The problem may be that you have the wrong version of FE5. There were two different releases. I don't know which of the two versions Super Thracia is supposed to work with, but try the NIntendo Power version if it doesn't work with the regular, or vice versa if you are currently using the Nintendo Power version.

'bad rom' will show up regardless if you patch anything since that's part of the checksum, it has no bearing on whether the ROM runs

as said above, recheck if you need a header or not and if you need to use the NP or V.ROM version

a .ips file is the patch

how big is your ROM (as in, the filesize)

For everyone who comes across this page with the same questions regarding rom type or headers heres the 2 points you'll need to know.

1) Make sure you have the right version (either NP or V-rom). You can get either version by googling the specific version. The rom file will end in .sfc for NP and .smc for V-Rom. Sometimes a patch will require an unedited rom (meaning it will still be in japanese), this can also be easily found by google.

2) Add a header to the rom as most patches for FE5 require a header. Do this with a SNES tool (like Nach's SNES ROM Tools or NSRT for short). Just open up the rom in NSRT and go to: edits > options > headers > add empty header > apply. If you want to check to see if your rom has a header you can open it up in a hex editor (like WindHex), you'll know it has a header if you see a bunch of 00's at the beginning (20 rows 00's specifically).

IN THE CASE OF SUPER THRACIA...use the V-Rom version with a header. It may or may not work with an english patch, though I doubt it, so just use a Japanese rom.

This should hopefully clear up any questions about rom type or headers as well as how to get Super Thracia to work.
