Creating game patches for HDL
Okay I know you guys always say search the forums first and well, I have but I got no positive results, I've searched the net too with no luck.
I'm just wondering, I've got super monkey ball deluxe which doesn't work on hdloader with the latest patch enabled and I'm wanting to attempt to create a patch for it although I'm a little lost.
First of all, how can I discover why it isn't compatible with hdloader? Is there anyway to test it, like debug it as if it's running from hdloader in order to give a clue as to where the problem lies? I've dissassembled it many a time using ps2dis and wandered through the sourcecode aimlessly although I don't have any idea why it doesn't work, could someone please give a real starting point for patching games? someone like crazyc a little advice? I'd be extremely grateful :-pray:
As I say I'm not looking for someone to write a patch for me, just some advice on debugging and such would be extremely helpful :)
