Image too large after region patching (Sega Saturn Patcher 1.91 BETA)

Hi,

I'm using the Sega Saturn Patcher 1.91 BETA and encountered an issue on Battle Garegga (Japan). After applying only the Region Free patch, the iso/image is too large for a cd. According to ImgBurn it is 734MB (and this disc is only 702MB). I've tried all the different output methods to see if that would have an effect and it did not.

I can burn the image before applying the patch, so just wondering if there is a bug with Sega Saturn Patcher or if I need to change any settings or something?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers!

try using 1.3
 
try using 1.3

I just tried that version and it is giving me an error:

Error Building ISO!
Access to path '00GR.BIN' is denied.

Are there any other requirements for 1.3 (like .net) that are different than 1.9.1? I'm running a fresh installation of Windows 11, so I may not have all the required runtimes.

no, the disc just has some anomalies that I am still working on.

Try the SSP with the latest Grandia patch, it has an early version of 2.00
 
Thanks for the replies. Where do I get the SSP with the Grandia patch? I don't see that in the SSP history, just the latest 1.91.
 
I'm not understanding. Is there a patch that is separate from the 1.91 release? If so, where can I download that? If it is part of the 1.91 download, do I need to apply/do something? I didn't see anything that seemed like it needed to be applied, but I may just not understand what needs to be done.

Thanks!

Grab the Grandia translation patch on this site. Inside of it is a custom SSP program built for that.
 
Appreciate the help.

Unfortunately, that version Grandia didn't even change the region code on Battle Garegga.

I tried another region patcher and it seemed to work. However, I'm still waiting on my Phanton chip to verify on the actual console.
