in english:

Hello all - I found 2 tools to change the internal name of the ROM

One is automatic, the other one must be careful -

The internal ROM name is used by texture packs, and the states, and saves, so it is very helpful when renaming a ROM that has patch.

The first tool - Rom renamer- http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/791/
Archive - N64ROMRenamer.zip
WARNING - machine indicated that it had a virus - false warning?

To run you have to Verify if COMCTL32.OCX is in C:\windows\system32 for 32 bit systems
C:\Windows\SysWOW64 for 64 bit .
If you, you may try re-registering the file.

1. Go to start and type cmd.

2. Right-Click on cmd and select “Run as Administrator”.

3. Type regsvr32 [path]/comctl32.ocx and press Enter.

Same process for COMDLG32.OCX

The second - Translhextion16c - http://www.zophar.net/utilities/hexutil/translhextion.html
Archive - Translhextion16c.zip
WARNING - when executed - it said it wrote something in my registry

Please check if these are harmful programs -
if they are bad then we must seek another binary editor

(sorry but the english & spanish did not fit in the first post , preview was not working google translate messes up something)

Hola a todos - encontre 2 herramientas para cambiarle el nombre interno al ROM

Una es automatica , la otra hay que tener cuidado -

El nombre interno del ROM es utilizado por los paquetes de texturas, y los states, y saves , asi que es muy util de una vez cambiarle el nombre a un ROM que tenga parche.

El primer tool - Rom renamer- http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/791/
Archivo - N64ROMRenamer.zip
ADVERTENCIA - me indico que tiene un virus - falsa alarma?

Para que el programa funcione tienen que verificar que COMCTL32.OCX este en C:\windows\system32 para sistemas de 32 bits
C:\Windows\SysWOW64 para sistemas de 64.
tienen que aniadir los archivos al registro

1. Ir a inicio y escriban cmd.

2. click derecho en cmd y seleccionen “ejecutar como Administrator”.

3. escriban regsvr32 [directorio de Syswo o System32]/comctl32.ocx & presionen Enter.

mismo proceso para COMDLG32.OCX

El segundo - Translhextion16c -http://www.zophar.net/utilities/hexutil/translhextion.html
Archivo - Translhextion16c.zip
ADVERTENCIA - cuando los ejecute - me dijo que escribio algo en mi registro

por favor checken si estos programas con nocivos -
si son malos hay que buscar entonces otro editor binario.

Ollllo here -

The benefit of ROM renamer, is that it changes the ROM's name & ID faster and in a correct way -

This helps in a couple of ways

1- if you create a High resolution texture pack, or are in the process of creating one, this helps you keep your high resolution version of the game apart from the original version.

2- sometimes the patches that you find for some games, do not change the internal name so emulators try to use the game's default name and this creates a mess with your save states - by renaming your ROM you have save states and memory saves with your new personalized ROM name

3- you can use the new ROM name to have personalized settings in PJ64, like custom settings for glide that will only work with your title.

4- it opens your ROM file way faster than a HEX or Binary editor does




-----------------------------------
------------------------------------

Translhextion16c takes about 6 minutes to open the ROM (at least in this thing) and maybe just doing this:


to this


might bring about conflict (don think so but...)

it seems that lots of people use Translhextion & the registry thing has to do with a font that it needs -
is this suspicious? can a font install be used to function as a keylogger ?
