Since so many people seem to have trouble with this for some unfathomable reason, I thought I'd make this guide.

You're going to need:

- Your Sonic ROM of choice in binary format (if it's SMD, you'll have to convert it)
- An unzipped IPS patch
- StealthPatch (yes it does work on XP). Download here.

Okay, download and unzip StealthPatch, and run the EXE. You'll see this:

IPB Image

Now, click file and select "Apply IPS patch"

IPB Image

Now, you're going to need to find your Sonic ROM. In this example, it'll be a Sonic 2 ROM.

IPB Image

Next, find the IPS patch you wish to use. For this example, it'll be S2ALER3.ips, Sonic 2: Aluminium Edition release 3.

IPB Image

Next, name the ROM you're going to put out. Remember to add the .bin on the end, as the program doesn't do it for you.

IPB Image

When you're done, you'll be asked if you want to apply an extra data set. Some hacks don't have one, but most recent ones do. If your hack doesn't, hit no. This hack does (as you may have noticed), so we hit yes.

IPB Image

Find the extra data set (sometimes named as a .dat file) and use it. It'll add that extra data to the ROM.

IPB Image

StealthPatch will prompt you when done.

IPB Image

There, that was easy, eh? If the hack plays but gives a red screen, disable checksum checking in your emulator.

Nice guide (and maybe now the OMG OMG OMG I CANT UES TEH IPS PATCHES people will shut up), but I'm seeing a couple of red X's there. Any chance of fixing them?

Yeah, done. They were there last night, NTL server is screwy. Probably near my storage limit or something.

It's like the down and across thing; BIN, not SMD!

The ROM not being read-only generally helps as well.

HAHA, that sounded strange. Because ROM = Read Only Memory. I know what you meant, it's just funny =P

Some IPS's don't work in SPatch - e.g. the fake Sonic CulT Sonic 1 Prototype. The patcher crashes.

Some roms are bigger than original, and then the whole checksum checking sucks =P You have to manually edit rom size variable in the rom.

Read the Gens readme.txt

Also, good thing there is now a guide.



Also, for people who have StealthPatch crash on them, you can try IPS XP:

It's sad that this is needed to be pinned....

Although I usually use SNEStool for IPS patching/making.
The term ROM never seemed to accurate to me. It makes ROM hacking feel like an oxymoron.
And looser2k, put Gens in your c:/windows (or c:/WINNT with some versions of XP) and delete all the .DLL files in that folder.
