    Default New ROM Patching Tool (Patchinator)

    Patchinator will patch Game Genie codes into any Genesis, Mega Drive, or 32x ROM. It will also fix checksums for you, including fixing checksum problems (blank red or black screen) with EA (Electronic Arts) ROMs.

    This program has some improvements over other ROM patching programs (like Game Genie Guy). Patchinator can fix checksum issues with any EA ROM. EA games don't use the checksum value in the header like other games, so fixing that value doesn't work (which is what other patching programs do). Patchinator allows you to only fix checksum problems if you want (without patching in any codes). Also, Patchinator doesn't use an external program (like uCON64) for calculating the checksum.

    Thank you.

    I've seen lots of people over the years having checksum problems with other patching programs, and I noticed that most of the problems were with Electronic Arts ROMs. This tool should take care of that. I think there are a few other games that patching programs (including mine) can't fix the checksums on, but I'll work on those games next and hopefully get 100% compatibility in a future release.
