Thank you for your review
IPS Patcher is used for applying IPS patches to ROM files. IPS patches are generally used for translations, but can be used for gameplay modifications as well. ROM and IPS files can be found elsewhere on the web. This application was created mainly because there were no IPS patching utilities available for MacOS X.

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • Gzipped ROM files are now supported transparently. If a ROM file is gzipped, it will be decompressed before patching and recompressed again after patching. If a ROM file is not gzipped, it will be patched and written out uncompressed (thanks to Norman Palardy for this)
  • Binary ROM files (.bin files) are now supported
  • Revamped the About window
  • Added an application icon

  • More...
