Post Star Ocean Patch issues
Whenever I try to play Star Ocean using the patch the game either freezes on the third loading screen or if I hit start to get past the loading screens all I get is a black screen with music playing. I used NSRT to scan the rom and this is what the scan shows:

I'm using Snes9x v1.51 any ideas on what I can do to fix the problem?

We know Star Ocean has several issues, most of which do not originate from DeJap's patch. Use Snes9x for the time being.

Remove the NSRT header.

This patch does not need any header. The header is causing the patching to produce something that doesn't work.

Besides, the NSRT headers are for games that use special devices, not special chips. Don't add headers when they are not needed.

Nah, the real problem was the patching format. If only we could get everyone to start using Nach's XOR format, nobody would ever have to have this header vs no-header discussion again.

I stayed silent to keep the hilarity intact.

That'll be the last time I'm going to post anything very late at night while slightly under the influence.

You might want to keep them twinkies and the ZBoard bible nearby, just in case. I'd rather not turn into some mongrel tard, having crossed the threshold briefly now.

You just have to practice.
Learn how to channel the n00b, to focus it, to control it.

I actually used to be really good at faking n00b posts.

That's what happens when someone don't take the time to read the readme file...
