Default Patch Checker

Have you ever wanted to put more than one patch onto a ROM? maybe you like the moemon patch or another graphic patch ontop of a full hack...

Ever needed to know if the two patches will play nice together...

I have just the tool for you.

PC1.JPG

The Patch Checker compares all the bytes changed in the 2 .IPS patches and gives you a percentage as to how compatible they are. the higher percentage the less glitches you will have when patching them in the same ROM.

Load 2 separate .IPS files and click "check". its as simple as that.

this tool does only checks IPS patches, if anyone knows the format (or wants to toss a link at me) for other patching files I will incorporate them...

Version 2.0
LSA - Patch Checker.zip

UPDATE: Reports now supported

I have a kind of request for a feature: To look at one ips patch, and tell what game it needs to be patched on? like- BPRE, BPEE. That would be really useful.

As awesome and helpful as that would be... that sort of data is not stored in an ips file... technically u could patch it in any kind of file... try patching one to a .txt file... lol.

Patches store bytes to be altered and offsets of where to alter them. Its the patching software that handles what file it can be patched too. and since that data is not stored in the patch itself, the patcher cannot warn you... thats y its gottta be in the readme for the patch.
