Because not every game was released in the US?

You might experiment with Ucon64 and see if it has anything that can help. I know it has the ability to fix region protection on certain systems, I'm not sure if the SNES is included amongst them, however.

Yeah, what Turtle said. You'll need to get yourself a copy of uCON64 (http://ucon64.sourceforge.net/). Assuming you're using windows, download this (http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ucon64/ucon64-1.9.8-4-dos-bin.zip?download) build and extract it to your ROMs directory. Then:

1. Open up your DOS prompt (open the 'Run...' menu and type "command") and bring it to your ROMs directory.

2. Type "ucon64.exe mario.smc -f" and hit return. Do the same with "ucon64.exe mario.smc -k" and "ucon64.exe mario.smc -l". (substituting mario.smc with the name of your rom - probably best to rename them all to one word filenames).

3. Profit!

I realize this, but I would be willing to bet that 80% of the roms he wnats to convert are available as a US rom.

So... your advice isn't very useful *or* practical. But hey, it's the thought that counts!

Now, now... he was trying to help. Where intentions are good, there's never a need to be mean.

Yes, that will do the job just fine. You can also use the latest snestl, which has a gui, although it doesn't support a mouse. If you are in NTSC land (North America or Japan), then select "Fix for NTSC" from the options. Browse to the location of your rom with the menu on the left. Highlight it, hit enter, and that's that.

I've been visiting this board since it's inception in 1998. I've been ROM hacking slightly longer than that. But if you actually thinking post count is relevant, more power to you.

I wouldn't worry about him too much, post count doesn't mean much at all. Some of the most knowledgeable people on this board have low post counts (I mean, they're busy doing other stuff ;P)

You obviously weren't around when King_Killa was banned for being an idiot and treating people like crap. If you want to really get him going, ask him if he still thinks that DirectX is a good compression utility.

That wouldn't get me going at all because I've matured since then. I'm not a complete dumbass anymore. But maybe you were just too busy picking on n00bs to notice.

Yes, because I've done that so much over the past month, dipshit.

Please stop. This is the type of behavior normally reserved for the Backroom.
