GSM Player incompatible with ED GBA X5
« on: September 01, 2017, 03:17 PM »
There is this GSM Player by Damian Yerrick (https://pineight.com/gba/gsm/) which can convert .wav files into a GBA ROM for playback. 231 MB worth of .wav files resulted in a ~5 MB ROM for me, so with the 32 MB max ROM size on the X5 it should be no issue at all. I verified the ROM in an emulator too, but still, it doesn't work on the X5, just comes up with a garbled Nintendo logo.

I've noticed that it is listed as a "4M" ROM in the menu even though the ROM is bigger than that, so that might have something to do with it. Either way, obviously it's of not much practical use, but still having it work would be cool even just for novelty, especially as seeing how the emulators are also supported on the X5. The old flashcarts seemed to support this program fine, as well.

Edit: found the solution, it is fixing the header with this tool.
