I've been having trouble recently finding a way to patch roms on a new Mac. On my old computer, I had no problem but the new Macs that run Lion can't run Power PC apps and almost all of the patchers out there are PPC. The only thing that I've been able to download that is an IPS patcher is MultiPatch, but for some reason that doesn't seem to work at all. Any help would be appreciated.

If it's .ips patching you're looking into, when I used a Mac I just used Wine to use Lunar IPS and thus was all was well. If you're using a different kind of patch though, I'm not entirely sure.

On Mac (especially if Intel-only) the best one I've found is MultiPatch. But really, just run your Windows IPS patcher of choice through Wine. For me, I prefer WinIPS

Figured it out. Used wine and winIPS. Never had ventured into that kind of programming stuff before, but very satisfying when i figured it out. Thanks guys!
