Help would be appreciated. Oh, and in A-Ptch in gave me a MS-DOS file before o.O
I've already fixed the A-Ptch problem. I simply forgot to update the program's version. So it was pretending to be outdated, basically.
Anyway, delete both FSF and A-Ptch, and download them again from the first post.

    First of all, I'd just like to thank you for all of your tools. They've been really helpful for my hack. And I'll be using A-Patch instead of LIPs when if I ever release a Beta for my hack.

    Second, though, I'd like to ask you a question. I remember a while back reading in the tutorials section about a program by the name of "A-Cry". The post is months old now, so I'm not sure if you were still planning on releasing it; or making it, or if you ever started, or finished it? (Though I doubt the latter, or you would have released it most likely.)

    I'm having some problems with Pokecry, so I was just wondering.

        Well, everyone's saying it, I'll say it too, thanks for your tools, they're amazing and have really redefined hacking.
        That said, what are the advantages of using A-patch as opposed to LIPS?

          Supports expanded ROMs, Patches have the potential to be smaller, There is a check when patching to make sure the ROM is "clean", and it has reverse patching. (Off the top of my head LOL)

            Gamer2020 explained a bit, but I'm going to elaborate more.
            First of all, unlike LIPS, A-Ptch fully supports expanded ROMs. Second, depending on the changes, the APS patches will take less once compressed compared to IPS ones. There's really no reason not to zip them, after all. Third, you can't apply an APS patch to the wrong file, basically. Fourth, due to the way the APS patches work, once you apply a patch, applying it again would unapply all the changes.

            Does it happen all the times you try to open it?

            I have no idea... it never happened to me. And even if I knew what was causing that, I have no source code so I highly doubt I could do anything about it.

              That's not my business. It's AM which cannot use 7-digit offsets. You'll have to manually hex edit the ROM.

                  Nice! Thanks for the explanation, I'll be using A-patch for my future hack releases, then. Keep up the good work!
                  Erm, for a tool recommendation, is there any way you could make a scripting language, much like XSE, that would compile to ASM format? Not with everything of course, but to simplify some of the basics, and make ASM a little more accessible. I don't know much about compilers, so I'm not sure if that would be feasible or not.

                  You're welcome. As for your suggestion, I've already thought about way before you posted, and I will make something for the next XSE version, that's for sure. What I'm not sure about is when it will be released as there's a lot to do, so just be patient. Good tools take time, you know ;)

                  Just read the idea for XSE... sounds interesting indeed, can't wait to learn more for sure.

                  If you got any IM accounts such as MSN/AIM/YIM/ICQ, this is the right time to send me a PM with details.

                  ---

                  Little update: Shinyzer is going to get a few more languages, same for A-Ptch which will get a couple of features added too. Don't ask, I'll say it when it's released :D

                  EDIT: What I said above is also one of the reasons why I decided to delay the A-Ptch tutorial.

                      How can I get A-Patch to work? When I patch a APS File, it saids that the APS
                      file is not valid. What is going on?

                        Why would you patch an APS file? It's possible; but =/
                        You have to patch a ROM with an APS file.

                          Oh, that's how you do it? But how do I do that?
                          I mean, the APS File is a unknown file type, double clicking it does nothing
                          but shows a list of programs.

                            Double clicking doesn't work since the file association is done I think. You must select your ROM that you want to patch and the APS file that you'll use and specify the output file as well.
