Garbled Background. HELP!

OK, I have been working on my first ever SMW hack and I wanted to change the BG in the Switch Palace to this: SMB3 Question Marks

I inserted the ExGFX correctly and saved the GFX to Map16. The background appears fine in Lunar Magic but when I test it in the ROM itself I end up with this garbage in ALL the levels:

I'm playing this in ZSNES 1.51.
Is there any way to fix this?

Seems like you're overwriting tiles that are used for SMW's original BGs. Try inserting your ExGFX on page 12-1F.


D'OH! *slaps self* I just found the problem. There was an IPS file in the folder causing the ROM to screw up. I didn't know that they could cause problems in LM.
They don't. What is actually happening is that your emulator is auto-patching your rom with the patch. This does not affect the rom file itself, and is why it looked fine in Lunar Magic.
