Managing ROM Patchers

  • Name - Specify a name for the patcher
  • File path - Specify the path to the patcher
  • Command line - Specify the format of the command line that should be used when applying a patch to a game file. There are two special values that need to be included in the command line field for the plug-in to know how to apply a patch to a game file. {patch} indicates the patch file and {rom} indicates the game's rom file.
  • Platforms - Select the platforms that the patcher can be used with

Importing a ROM Hack
The plug-in includes a menu item called "Import ROM Hack" when you right click on a game. To import a rom hack, right click on a game and select "Import ROM Hack". A file dialog will open prompting to select a patch file. Select the file that contains the patch file. The "Import rom hack" screen will be displayed with information about the selected game and selected patch file. Enter values for the imported ROM hack as desired and click OK. The plug-in will make a copy of the source game, extract files as needed, apply the selected patch file to the source ROM file, and import the game into your LaunchBox library.

Wow man, I can't believe nobody commented on this yet. This is amazing work! Not only did you completely integrate patching to feel like a stock park of Lunchbox, but you also actually improved on it!!! This has now become a default mandatory part of my setup!! Incredible job on this!

Thanks man, I’m glad it’s working well for you.  Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any ideas for enhancements. I already have a few ideas for enhancements that I plan to work on as time permits.
