Famtasia ROM Loading Error

When Famtasia says "This file is maybe illegal image" as shown in the image at left and refuses to load your ROM, it's because the ROM is garbled.

The most common reason for this is the "DiskDude!" advertisement tag in the ROM header.

The .NES file format specification states that those bytes should be zero, so Famtasia expects them to be. You can zero those 9 bytes with a hex editor if this is the problem for you.
