I love hacking Galaxy
So, whenever I load Ice Flower and Red Star patch, the game freezes at safety screen. Dunno why, NMG works fine. I have changed SystemMessage.arc's InformationMessage.msbt for all languages and added a string for Ice flower (basically, looked at other powerups intro strings and replaced 'fire' or 'drill' with Ice but created new string using MSBT Editor). I put LocalizeData with the SystemMessage.arc patch in them. Then, I got the files for Ice flower & Red star and put them in ObjectData. The files I got in ObjectData also included: ._KoopaShipB.arc , ._ProductMapObjDataTable.arc and ._YoshiCaughtPlanet.arc . I also added the ASM hacks for PAL into <patch> tag all under same patch. When I load, press A on safety screen, game freeze. I deleted the ._ at the start of the files I listed above. Loaded, same thing (freeze). I have also tried only editing EuEnglish's SystemMessage.arc's InformationMessage.msbt, this time it was different, It showed some crash debug screen after I pressed A. So no matter what I tried, it doesn't work. I know I have PAL because I made a backup of the iso (for whitehole).

I'm sorry if this just looks like a big block of text but please help me to get this to work. I really need this

Well...

Did you make the patch yourself? Or did you just take it from the already existing patches?

If you made it yourself, try making sure that you didn't forget anything.
If you took it from a different patch... I dunno. Try ONLY loading the ice flower/red star patches.

1. No, I didn't make the patch myself, just the Riivolution XML file. I found the patch somewhere in SMG Hacking thread.
2. Yes, I am loading ONLY that patch. I mean, NMG doesn't contain ._KoopaShipB.arc , ._ProductMapObjDataTable.arc and ._YoshiCaughtPlanet.arc.

But it does contain ProductMapObjDataTable. should I remove KoopaShipB.arc and YoshiCaughtPlanet.arc?

Edit: Tested, same thing still. Might edit ProductMapObjTable now see what it looks like.

...

Huh.
Hold up:
when you FOUND those files (._KoopaShipB.arc , ._ProductMapObjDataTable.arc and ._YoshiCaughtPlanet.arc) they all had ._
right?

Well, IIRC, those files ARE NOT .ARC'S

they are backup files that are useless.

Try finding and using the files that DON'T have ._

Yeah, don't use the files prefixed with ".".
Additionally, just use the memory patches excerpts from the XML files. It's as simple as that.

Pfff, removed the files that start with ._ and now it freezes on the Safety Screen even before I press A. What am I doing wrong? Here is my Riivo XML:

Sorry but if you don't get any answers it probably is because people don't know what could be your problem

And if you don't have any solution to the problem, you shouldn't be posting like this either.

Well, looks like I do. I messed around with the files and stuff and it....WORKED! Sorry but I have no way of explaining what I did, as I have no way of putting it straight. If you want help, or how to put the patch I used PM me and I'll sort it out. Someone can now close this thread.

By the way, how to put a [SOLVED] tag on a thread?
