Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.

When I try to type in the name of my ROM while applying a patch, it shows this:

And it does this for every patch that I try to use. How do I fix this?
Because I'm kinda new at patching things...

This is temporary
Rename it so that it's .smc, not .sfc.
Yeah, sfc is unheadered so change it to .smc

Just like MerucyPenny said.

100% Orange Juice Playthrough:

VLDC9 Playthrough:

Background info:

If your file extension is .sfc, Asar assumes the ROM has no header. (A header, in case you didn't know, is 512 useless zero bytes at the very start of the file.)
The ROM name is stored at a different location depending on whether the header's there or not. If your ROM has a header but you make Asar assume it hasn't, it will look for the ROM name in the wrong place, thus finding garbage and thinking your ROM is corrupt.


I got it to work. Thanks, guys!

This is temporary
Yeah i have the same problem, how do you do the heather thing?
Please check post dates before posting this thread is 5 years old and you'd be better off just making a new one.
One way to fix this though is to run the unmodified rom through RomClean to make sure it's good. Another way is to make sure it has a .smc extension not a .sfc extension because Asar uses the extension in this case .smc to determine if the Rom has a header or not.
