The JavaScript version will do the job for you.

Download wine ( I know the original poster won't read this, but if anyone else has this problem, I hope they see this message)

I haven't done anything SMW hacking related for a, long, time. When did the standard change from IPS to BPS, and why?

Anyway, thanks for letting us download it here on the site, I'll take it #tb{:DD}

You can convert a headered (.smc) ROM to unheadered (.sfc) here.
Posted by: randomdude999 - | Link
willian125677
This is fair, just saying. Problem is that I've no idea where I'll find an unheadered rom, neither if I can make the rom unheadered.
Thanks for the info randomdude999.


Edit: with a tool to add/remove headers (just look for tush), I could use floating properly. It does apply patches, but only on unheadered roms. This is weird, but acceptable.
Posted by: willian125677 - | Link
randomdude999
The online patcher doesn't account for headered/unheadered ROMs. It seems that Flips creates patches against unheadered ROMs behind the scenes. The online patcher doesn't support that, so you need to use unheadered ROMs with it instead.
Posted by: randomdude999 - | Link
willian125677
So romclean means the rom is clean and suitable to use, but the javascript version of floating keep saying "wrong input file". How do I know if the rom is indeed clean and will work on this tool or not? Note that the desktop version of floating ips works normally with both roms I've found.

@hobbledehoy899 What? this is a ROM Patcher, not an SPC dumper of some sort.
Posted by: Konata Izumi - | Link
hobbledehoy899
I noticed you said that you composed the soundtrack yourself and thus you wouldn't want to release the .spc files, but could the soundtrack ever be released as precompiled CD-quality .wav files?

I'm having trouble applying BPS patches to the SMW ROM I usually use, which is an .smc file. I tried changing it to an .sfc file, but it didn't work. I downloaded another SMW ROM from a different site, but I still get a "wrong imput file" prompt.

1 problem: doesn't allow you to patch SMW bps patches to your game. That's funny since the freaking description says: "Applies and creates IPS and BPS patches."

luigi1995
I don't know why people stopped making ppf patches for SM64 hacks. I try to patch an IPS patch to a CLEAN UNEXTENDED USA sm64 rom (what any tutorial says) and it says "this patch is not intended for this ROM"

Maybe I missed something but I can't play these hack for now...

EDIT : I found the solution, that's just because my rom wasn't a good dump while it was clean, I noticed that it didn't had a [!] next to it's name. Now it worked ! I let my message in case of people are in the same situation as me...

If you ever release a new version you should rename it to Floating BPS.

IPS patches do care whether a ROM is "clean" or not, that's why BPS was set as the new standard.

Then you most likely have a wrong rom. Make sure you're rom is clean. Maybe try and run it through this tool.

the FLIPS (floating ips) accepts .ips and .bps patches the LIPS (lunar ips) only accepts ips, hope i helped

Added Linux binary to the zip; not sure if anyone will use it, but it does no harm
Posted by: Alcaro - | Link

With the rise of the BPS format it is absolutely essential (especially for the Linux users umoung us) to upgrade from FuSoYa's original Lunar IPS to this.
Posted by: hobbledehoy899 - | Link

Then that's the wrong input file. Use only (U) [!], and only use the copy directly from the ROM site.

My Norton Anti-Virus keeps on deleting this and doesn't delete LIPS. This means LIPS is better because I don't have to worry about all the hassle this new program gives me.

Starz Lol:

1) License says I'm not allowed to say no.
2) Probably not, but feel free to try. Older versions would be easier, since they're C, not C++, but I'm not sure if they're still around anywhere.

(we need a system where submission comments tell the author that something happened.)

Great, but I have a couple questions:

1. Can I redistribute this as a DEB file for Ubuntu?
2. Can this be adapted to i286 MS-DOS somehow?

Thanks, worked perfect for me after patching my Rom to make it clean.

Berkay: There's a patch with that tag too.

It's weirder.


ecx: Copypasting from the thread:

Can apply multiple patches at once. (Can't create multiple patches at once, though; make a batch file if you need that.)
Can apply and create BPS patches.
Generated IPS patches are (usually) (slightly) smaller (99.9994% on SMWCP2 1-15-13.ips) than those from LIPS. Both LIPS and Flips are fully capable of applying patches generated with the other.
Can apply and create patches through the command line. (Note that you'll get the C:\> prompt again, with Flips' output on top, if launched from cmd directly; it works fine from batch files. It's either that or flashing a console window for a tiny while when it's double clicked, and a rare bug is better than a common bug.)
Can apply a patch and run it in an emulator without forcing the user to create temporary files.
Can compile and run on any platform you want. You can get Windows or GTK+ GUIs, or a CLI-only app depending only on libc. (No plans for an OS X port; I don't have any Macs nearby, though I'll include it if someone else makes one.)
Can handle files containing characters outside the 8-bit character set (for example フローティング.ips). (But I'd bet you didn't even know LIPS can't handle that, they're rare.)
Refreshes all folder windows once file associations are claimed, instead of waiting until next reboot.
Open source, in case you care.
Despite the added features, the executable is smaller than LIPS. (Not that you have any reason to care.)

The important ones are the emulator launcher, BPS support (they're smaller than IPS, and can't be applied to wrong file), and the multi-patch support.
