I followed this tutorial.

I'm trying to insert ticking.asm, which I'm told replaces the P-Switch music with a ticking sound while the normal level music plays.

The patch, ROM, and xkas are all in the same folder. When I type the path "xkas ticking.asm testing" ("testing" is the name of the ROM) into CMD and hit enter, I get "xkas.exe has stopped working". I also checked to see if the patch actually inserted; it didn't. I've tried adding in the file types into the command (xkas.exe, testing.smc), but nothing happens when I do that.

Do I need to edit something in the patch, or am I just doing something wrong?

Thanks!
Does anything show up in cmd when it crashes?
If yes, post it. If no, post the patch. (Or you may want to post the patch anyways; it'll help us point out exactly where the problem is.)

No message shows up, CMD just resets.

Is your patch requires to set freespace?
If it need to set, you can try this tutorial.

That may make the ROM crash, but it sure as hell won't make xkas itself crash.

The file assembles just fine for me. xkas crashes if trying to assemble a file that doesn't exist, but it prints "error: [null] not found" before doing that.
Double check the spelling of the patch. If that doesn't help, maybe you're in wrong folder, or something? You're not adding paths at random places (tools\xkas patches\lol.asm dailybackups\131108.smc), right?

you need to type xkas.exe ticking.asm testing.smc
(don't know/think the .exe is necessary, but no harm done there)

The .exe isn't necessary. All the patches I use work fine without it.

CMD doesn't automatically have a path leading to the xkas folder, so I put that in, if that makes a difference.
You need to have everything in the same folder, no paths or anything.

The point of my post was actually to say that he needs to write the .smc extansion to his romname.

Also as GW said, you need everything in the same folder, as well as the .bat file.
  • xkas.exe
  • <ROM_name>.smc
  • <Patch_name>.asm
  • batch.bat

with the content of batch.bat looking like this:

Code
xkas <Patch_name>.asm <ROM_name>.smc
@pause

When I put in @pause, the patch inserted. Although the background graphics messed up a bit after the insert, it was an easy fix. But the sound of the P-switch being pressed is gone, and I don't understand how to insert the sound effect the patch came with.
