Is there a read me file for this? Sorry; found the read me. I've tried to patch this, then run the patched SF1 file to play the randomized game w/my selected settings, but I get a black screen w/no button response. There's a message up top (on the program/app window) pulling from the randomizer log, but I can't play the randomized file.
Should I apply the IPS patch to an expanded ROM? (I had applied it to a regular ROM.)
UPDATE: It looks like I should just try to randomize the ROM w/o the included IPS patch...? (the read me says "unmodified"....)
Hmm, the intended method of usage is to apply the IPS patch to a normal copy of SF1, and then randomize that, which should work fine.
What emulator are you using? Did you close the randomizer before trying to play the game (in case the file was still open somehow)? You're sure you don't accidentally have the emulator paused or anything?
Kega Fusion is what I recommend to play with and I haven't experienced any issues with it - it sounds like it's most likely.
ACTUALLY, if there's a message pulling from the randomizer log, like this:
...that means you tried to load the log
file, not the actual ROM. If you select the actual .bin you should get this message:
Make sure that your randomized ROM and your log file are saved as different
files. I think you might have saved the log file over the actual ROM. It should be saved as a separate file with a .txt extension.
