Pal Patcher and CDI Games

Post by SparkThaMetal »

Hi, this is almost certainly a dumb question here.... But im in the process of organising all dc cdi releases in one big collection. Some of the older scene releases have PAL patches included that ppfomatic refuses to patch onto the cdi, saying its the incorrect size or something. And the applyppf program doesnt work on windows 10.
However, pal patcher seems to work fine without using the patch file? Using that it found the 50hz code, i patched it, and through emulator it seems to run at 60fps with fps counter showing.

So my question is, am i right in thinking if the Pal Patcher finds the 50hz code and patches it , is it fine to use that method rather than the scene patch?

If ppfomatic doesnt apply the patch, what other programs are there that would be suitable for me to try and use ? I can only find ppfomatic v3 and the nfo says it wants v2. Does anyone have that version?

Would it be advisable to check all the cdi's with pal patcher?

Thanks for any help you can give with this :)
