Enabling the Stage Select code was too much hassle so I made it default.

Along the way, I made other minor changes.
1. Level Select - adjusted alignment and colour
2. Stage Select - enabled by default, changed text, adjusted alignment and colour
3. Ending text - changed text to make it less painful to read

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level Select before:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p111

Level Select after:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p116

Might be imperceptible, but the font colours are all different. Kept within the same original palette.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage Select before:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p112

Stage Select after:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p113

Changed the colours too. Took the liberty to change "CRIFF" to "CLIFF".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ending text before:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p114

Ending text after:
[Blazing Star] Stage Select and minor tweaks 239-p115

And as much as Engrish is good for a laugh, a whole paragraph is a bit too much for me.

Cheers! My pleasure!

Yes, I do simple mods on other games too. Will post one on Pulstar I did a few weeks back.

On which rom is based the patch file ? (mame version xyz ? fba version x.y.z ?)

I think there's only one default ROM out? In any case, I put the CRC for it in the IPS patch.

Oh yes you're right, between mame & fba, they have the same CRC despite having different filenames (inside the zip files) Smile

Is this something that would normally be done via UNIBIOS? How would one extract the individual files from a .neo file?
I'd like to try it out on the Arcade Stick Pro.

For the Stage Select, I don't recall seeing any writing to memory so I think it's unlikely. For the other changes, not possible.

Run the IPS patch executable, there are simple instructions and CRC check for confirmation.

I have a Mac. Sad, I guess I could have a buddy try to do it for me.

Second = the link to the patcher is not working = gives a warning about it being a dangerous file (not my mac).
"Dangerous File Blocked

The file you attempted to download was determined to be dangerous. For your protection, MediaFire does not enable distribution of dangerous files."



I was able to download the Pulstar link but I don't need that since I was able to just fix the p rom with a hex editor.

Thanks for highlighting that, I've replaced it with a IPS patch instead of a direct IPS executable.

PMed you on another forum. I don't seem to have PM privileges here just yet.

This is cool also! I never knew that this game even had a stage select code! Now it's ALWAYS ON!
