Quoted from sudsy7:
Anybody successfully use the communication patch to change high scores/adjustments, etc? I tried to load the patch on Metallica 1.7 and didn't have any luck. Had a message saying " Warning cannot relocate patch" and "Data is out of range". Maybe it is hit & miss as to what games/code versions it works with?
Had this issue several times colorizing SMVE with daily incremental updates. The file somehow became corrupted.
Only way I could resolve it was to start with a virgin binary file and patch it with the comm patch before doing anything else. Set the patched binary for serial side channel. Reload all changes via the macro.
If you load subsequent things to the binary through macros, either take out the comm patch line from macro or comment it out with "--" at the beginning of the line. Either way you will get an error "cannot locate ..." Just click through and the rest of the macro will run.
Not sure if this will work for the new MET patch but it did for 1.0. SMVE and the subsequent update.
