Not sure if it was asked, but if I wanted say patch FF3 with the FF6 patch do I have to hide all 21 of the original in order to hide the original version, or is it possible to just hide the original FF3?

You can just hide the single game, yeah.

I guess the colored "2P" stands for simultaneously multiplayer? It's probably debatable if the DKC trilogy is simultaneously or not. The second player can control the other kong only after a tagteam-like commando. I wouldn't call that simultaneously at all. Whatever.

I seem to have three different sizes for the covers. I'll guess earthbound was a big box title, so I would have to change that manually? For DKC 2 I used the one from Robin64 and his covers in his picture all touch the edges of the "cover-holder". Something I'm doing wrong.

Hmm, I just realized that since my SNES doesn't turn on when plugged into a PC, there's no way that I know of to flash the original kernel. I think I'm fucked.

EarthBound was a bigger box, yeah, so is bigger here.

Not sure why your DKC2 box got scaled down, might be thing they fixed from RC2. But if you just browse to the hakchi/snes_games/ folder, you'll find the .png covers in those folders and can just manually put the right size one in.

Why don't you use custom folders (e.g. by genres) and sort the original 21 inside them?

I'm sorry in advance, because I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times already, but what's the right size? I'm currently in the folder, but I have no idea what size to put them

My boxes are a tiny bit more little than the OG ones.

So have to decide if I photoshop that back in, leave them as is, or remove it from the others (I've been changing them to say NTSC VERSION ;) )

I'd rather have the "PAL VERSION" thing instead of all the other text. ^^

The ones I was making for myself - and the ones Robin64 made - are 228 x 160 pixels.

Well, you might note the lack of PAL NTSC VERSION under my StarFox box. That's because I based it off the French version (since that was the best version I could find), but I removed all that junk text over the StarFox crew.

Two titles I'm going to have problems with: Super Mario RPG and Earthbound, as they never had PAL release (or equivalents of) so I'm going to have to make up a colour for them. If I base it off the title screen I guess I could go blue for SMRPG (since it features those blue beams) and purple for Earthbound.

Damn Robin, you had the same idea as me. I also created 3 Final Fantasy Cover for myself in US boxart style.

And i tried to have the logo on all 3 on the exact same position, what was hard with FF6, but here we go, maybe some of you like them.

Asking again: some of the games I transferred aren't working correctly, even though they are verified working for others (Turtles in Time, DKC2, etc).

The common issues these games have is that the main 4:3 screen is misaligned with the border, and the sound is choppy and laggy.

I checked the ROM files and they have the same extension as the others. Is it just a simple case of starting over with transferring them?

Also Robin, can those sprite icons be shared as well? Would love to use those in addition to the reformatted box arts you created.

Can't wait until we can start using custom borders.

base them off of the Japanese boxes, which is where the PAL colors come from anyway (most of the time, anyway [see SMK]).

EB = red
SMRPG = white

Star Fox 2 would be purple then, btw.

Son of a...! I didn't realize that until now. Ah well, having them all as separate games makes thumbnail editing easier anyway.

Speaking of which, word to the wise. If you change the thumbnails, and then select a new cover from inside Hakchi, it will overwrite your custom thumbnail, obvious. But! If you simply copy your thumbnail (a quick Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V with it selected in Windows Explorer), you'll have a backup to avoid this. But wait, here's more. If you paste this as a .bat file in the games_snes folder and execute it, it will copy all your thumbnail backups back over the actual thumbnails.

Code:

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /D /r %%d in ("*") do for %%f in ("%%d\*- copy.*") do if %%f neq %~nx0 (
	set "filename=%%~nf"
	copy "%%f" "%%d\!filename:~0,-7!%%~xf"
)
pause
If you're using a regional copy of Windows, you have to adapt the above script accordingly: change where it says - copy to whatever your version of Windows appends to same-folder copied files. Additionally, where it says ~0,-7, change the 7 to the number of characters actually removed when renaming, including spaces (for example, I have Windows in Spanish, which appends " - copia", so I have to replace the 7 with an 8).

Disclaimer: I tested this and it works, but as everything that modifies your files, be sure to back up your games_snes folder before giving it a try.

Yes, just keep trying. Keep the unit off, then when you go to flash the original kernel, do the reset+power thing to turn it on. Most of the time the original FW will flash fine. But even with the original FW, it doesn't always power on as expected, at least for me...
