First off, wrong forum by far. I'll move it to the right one.

Second, that avatar was WAY TOO BIG. Don't reupload it unless you shrink it down to a MUCH smaller size.
Did you make sure you patched an UNEDITED rom?

--------------------
Of course you should fight fire with fire, you should fight everything with fire.

Oooh look at my userbar!

As Sadistic Designer stated, make sure the ROM is clean. You can use the Clean Rom Verifier in the Tools section. There is one type of ROM on the internet that is not clean.

One type... what? If the ROM has (U) and [!] in the file name, it should be clean, but verify with the Online SMW Clean ROM Verifier.

I classified clean as a "type", in case he didn't understand. A lot of new hackers don't know what the term clean means.:P
Well if you worry about that, you can alwats explain it to them. You do know what the term clean means, right?

Unedited.
Essentially. It's an exact dump of the data you'd find on the official cartridge, unedited, uncorrupted (i.e. bad dumps, overdumps, etc.).

yeah, i made sure it was clean, and then retried and it still wont work, same old black screen...

Is this a hack or a patch from the patches section?
it's a hack, I downloaded another hack to make sure it wasn't just that one, but it didn't work either :\.

Does the ROM have a header? The IPS will patch the wrong part of the ROM if it doesn't have a header.

--------------------
?? header

--------------------

Anyway, just add a header in SNESTOOL or Lunar Magic (the latter will tell you to add one when you first open it.). After that, patch the ROM and you're good to go! ^-^

--------------------
If the ROM is clean, then it should have a header (considering the verifier just checks the hash).

I'm no editing genious,but I DO know that many things need the ROM expanded before things are done to it,like patches and such.

I don't know if you know or not,but a ROM is expanded when you FIRST save a level.

--------------------
Oh, well...this is awkward...

What hacks are you playing?

Wait...

You need to patch the patch to a CLEAN rom. No expanding required*.

If you save a level in a clean ROM to expand it, the patch will patch wrong and give you that black screen.



*there is one exception
