Tip: Take advantage of easy to install Patches in your hack. The No More Sprite Tile Limits or SA-1 patches should be considered if you're encountering glitches where Mario and/or sprites are turning invisible.

I need help like REALLY need help direly need help. I need to recover a ROM of mine from earlier today, but Lunar Magic won't open it up to allow me to. I used Lunar Expand to expand the ROM to 4 MB's, in order to insert a custom sprite. I made a backup before hand, and then I inserted them. Sprite-Tool said that it was done successfully, but then I tried to open it up in Lunar Magic. And it stated it wasn't a Super Mario World ROM. I checked with the Clean ROM Verifier, and indeed it isn't. The real problem is that backup ROM somehow got messed up as well when I copied it. So now I need some way to recover it, as my computer's backup is from the beginning of this year. Please if you know ANY way I can fix this please help me!#smw{._.}

EDIT: The weirdest thing is that when I loaded it in ZSNES, it still had a header. The header was "(c) 1994 Tricksasm" Maybe that might help.

There used to be stuff in this footer, but it's all gone now.
...what the hell? What the hell did TRASM do to your ROM?

Check if Lunar Magic's restore system can offer anything useful. I haven't used it myself, but poke around in File->Restore.

If that doesn't help, apply the following patch. With xkas or Asar, because TRASM is clearly possessed by some satanism.
Code
header
lorom

org $00FFC0
db "SUPER MARIOWORLD     "

Then port to a clean ROM as fast as you can and hope nothing too important broke.

Either way, I hope you'll make more backups in the future.

Header's fine, but everything else is fucked broken. All of the ExGFX is broken, sprites are broken. #smw{-_-;} Looks like I'll have to fix the OW map from the newest backup demo, and remake half of a world.

EDIT: If you'd know a way to repair it, the error is that it's opening, but Lunar Magic is stating that the ExGFX files don't exist, then follows up by saying that "Sprite GFX File 0x0 doesn't exist." Clicking the mushrooms to insert them is useless as all GFX was wiped. Almost all level names and the first two message boxes were replaced with "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA".

DOUBLE EDIT: I tried the thing you suggested, but in reverse. So that means I applied the patch so I could access the ROM in Lunar Magic, and thankfully, the restore points were still there. So I could revert it to the way it was before I inserted the custom sprite.
