Please don't double post :|

Also, you type like a child with a severe learning disability, and it makes me wonder how much you enjoy riding the short bus.

I probably can't help you because I hate the SNES more than any other system that isn't named PlayStation, but you can probably find the answers to your questions over here.

First, he didn't say you were a child. He said you type like a child. A retarded one, at that. To be fair, I know some kids with Down's Syndrome who are much better communicators. Also, 17 definitely qualifies you as a child.

If you learn so quickly, why is it that you haven't managed to pick up basic English grammar in your 17 years of life? If English isn't your first language, you might be forgiven, even though your grammar is bad enough to make a Brazilian embarrassed for you, but you should probably try posting on a forum that supports your native language.

Bragging about "hacking someone" isn't a good way to gain respect within intelligent circles. Especially when you're dealing with people who can tell that you couldn't hack your way out of a wet paper bag with four hands, a map and a blowtorch. Fuck, you can't even properly use a level editor that was designed for 4 year olds.

That being said, I've never used SMILE before. I'm relatively sure that I've never even played Super Metroid before. However, I just downloaded them both and loaded the ROM up in the editor with no problem. So my guess is that you're just dumb.

P.S. If anyone has posted in the three hours between me starting to write this reply and me actually posting it, thus making my comments irrelevant, fuck you. I had to go wash windows. I don't have all day to sit around on the computer eating Cheetos and jacking off to flame wars. (If the above situation doesn't reply then disregard. I'm out of Cheetos but I'll likely spend the rest of the day jacking off to flame wars. (Not really, I have porn. (But it's not hentai so most of you wouldn't be interested.)))

Default I'm from Germany... Moved here back inn 08. And my rom in a .smc

A .smc has PAL and NTCS format rendering, for some reason my smile editor can't render PAL, what type of file did you load, .smc is the only snes super metroid Rom file format I can find...

Well, if your SMILE editor can't render PAL then perhaps you could use someone else's SMILE editor. And while you're at it, ask them if you can borrow a dictionary so that you can look up the meaning of the word render. If you're feeling really brave, maybe even dig up a document on ROM formats, which you clearly don't know anything about.

Of course the Super Magicom format has PAL and NTSC "renderings". So does the Super Wild Card format. And the UFO, Pro Fighter and Game Doctor formats. That's because SNES *cartridges* come in PAL and NTSC formats.

Do you actually understand what the PAL and NTSC standards are? They're television encoding systems. Without going into too much technical detail, NTSC runs at 60hz and is the standard used by the US and Japan (ie. the primary video game producing / consuming countries) while PAL runs at 50hz and is the standard used by all of Europe and Australia. An NTSC SNES won't run on a PAL TV and vice versa. Thus separate systems that require separate cartridges had to be produced.

The reason your ROM is in PAL format is because it was dumped from a European version of the cartridge. It has absolutely nothing to do with what copier format the ROM is in. If you want an NTSC version of the ROM then download the US/Japanese version of the game instead of the European version.

The reason SMILE doesn't support PAL is most likely because the data is stored differently than in the NTSC version of the game and the author didn't feel like documenting those differences and adding in support for them to his code.

The reason you can't figure this out is because you're not a hacker. And you never will be. You don't even seem capable of becoming a piss poor script kiddy.

Exclamation Having trouble with Super Metroid Integrated Level Editor

I downloaded SMILE and have a rom: Super Metroid.smc. I ran the SMILE software and tried loading up the .smc rom. It than gave me a message explaining it doesn't support the rom because it is a PAL or NTSC, something this, how do I fix this, the README didn't help.

.IT DOES NOT WORK BECAUSE SMILE DOES NOT SUPPORT PAL FORMAT ROMS. YOU "FIX" IT BY DOWNLOADING A ROM THAT IS IN NTSC FORMAT.

You don't hack a god damned thing. You follow other people's instructions in order to replicate their experiences. You're not a hacker. You're nothing but a fucking tracer.

The fact that your German excuses your difficulty with the language. That's why my last reply only harped on your complete misuse of a single word. However, I'm relatively certain that German and English punctuation and capitalization use and paragraphical formats are identical, so the fact that someone can look at one of your posts and realize that you're stupid before they even read a single word has nothing to do with a language barrier.

Without a quality answer? The fucking answer is that you can't use a PAL ROM with SMILE. I'm not sure how to make that any higher quality. Would you like me to work in some similes such as trying to hack a PAL ROM with SMILE is like trying to run a gasoline powered car on diesel fuel? I suppose I could use a script based font, if that would give the answer the appearance of higher quality.

I'll give you one important tip. Hacking SNES ROMs requires the exact same skill set required to hack into government computers. This skill set is identical to the one required to hack into ATM machines. 95% of it is mental and must be possessed innately. It can not be learned. You do not have the necessary skills to be a hacker. You are not a hacker and you never will be.
