Too bad someone didn't take your FFHackster and add even music hacking to it.

I'll say from experience that is asking WAY TOO MUCH. Trust me, once you have dumped a project, you format the code clean out of your brain. Even if you take an 8 month break from working on it when you resume you'll have to learn where everything is and what does what all over again no matter how good your commenting is.

I have version 2.4. Im not sure who made it but it wasn't by the oringinal author. Anyway, it allows for changing of background refresh rates. With that I was able to make a colorization of Super Mario Land 1. You can find that patch here.

Seems to be an issue with the way he coded common dialogs that ends up failing on XP SP2 ... Oh well, no way in hell I'm going to downgrade.

For anyone wondering, this affects quite a few other applications too. It seems a BitTorrent client (maybe an older version of Bram Cohen's? BitComet is fine) has turned it up the most. The error code is 3002 (00003002 or -3002 it's sometimes also printed as) and is basically a fatal error where the common dialog dies and the file you tried to load with it is never passed to the program.

Microsoft lists the error code as a reserved error with no message, but that's the cause.
