There are generally three versions of games: Japanese, European
and USA version, sometimes marked at the end of the ROM name
by the (J), (E), or (U) respectively. If you have
the wrong one, the movie goes out of sync sooner or later.
Sometimes games have multiple revisions, (e.g. REV1, REV2), and multiple fixes and hacks.
If you have the wrong one, your movie will probably go out of sync.
The author may provide the name of the ROM. It is recommended (but not required) to rename ROMs using GoodTools
in order to standardize ROM names.
Do not ask us (the author of this site or the people at
the TASvideos forum
) to send you ROMs or FDS images.
Any such messages will be deleted.
It is generally best to check the hash of the ROM for an exact match. Hashes ensure, in practice, that you have exactly the same file as the author. Exact hash values using common algorithms such as MD5 and SHA1 are often posted in the discussion threads.
Turn them off.
