Topic says it all really
I tried using a search engine and all combinations of IPS patch making, how to make IPS patches......... etc to no avail.
I am totally at home with a hex editor (hex workshop is my editor of choice) and can compare files as hex/binary data using it: I just would like a guide to making this comparitive data into an IPS patch.
Is anyone able to help me out with this?
This is what I use. I'm sure both would result in the same output but I like it better than other patchers. Also it can take more than file as an input to create multiple patch files (think it's the only program that does that).
Actually that's what all of the save patches, trainers, etc. use so I think that is why it is the popular choice for patching. Not to mention that PPF is very scarce now and is sometimes hard to find the patching program (esp since there are different, incompatible versions). I don't think it is used much anymore (I know it was popular back in the PS1 days).
I'm not sure what you're trying to make a patch for, but keep in mind this neat little utility called IPS2EXE. The name implies its purpose - it'll take an .ips file and make it into a convenient executable. You can even specify a default filename for the target file to patch, which means patching is as easy as double-clicking the exe and hitting the go button. You can include notes, too. Good stuff.

So you start editing the file in a hex editor. Change a few bytes here and there... You then save the file as:
Which means you have two files now:
Given that the files are more than likely going to be copyrighted and illegal to distribute, and even if they're not, they might be too big to offer to download, what can you do ?
Simple, create a file that will turn:
IPS will do this for you. It compares the two files, works out the differences and stores those as an ips patch file. So anyone else who has an exact copy of OriginalFile.nds can apply the patch and make it look identical to ChangedFile.nds.
