Well, if it didn't work, that's all I could think of. 

 

Best to retrace your steps and see where it failed.  Not sure how you replaced the Sabres with Sonic without using NOSE, that's quite a challenge, so perhaps you missed something there.  Without knowing WHAT you did, nobody will be able to help you.

NOSE doesn't work- EVEN IF I use Wine.

I think troubleshooting NOSE is definitely the better alternative. Making these simple hacks in NOSE is the way to go.

@Jlnhlsegafan, my suggestion, if you want to get into modding the game, is to just go out and buy a cheap windows laptop from a used computer store or on a local buy-and-sell website (craigslist, kijiji, etc..).

My guess is that you just went into the ROM and replaced the names and hit delete if the old name was too long, or inserted extra letters if the old name was too short? That is unlikely to work. If your new team data is longer or shorter than the original, it will break the game because it will shift everything. It's not like a MS Word document that is read in order, instead the code references exact locations in the ROM, so moving the code breaks it. Your ROM looks like it is a few bytes shorter than the original.

 

You also need to update the the 'name length value' when you change the names. I see that these have not been updated, so the game would crash when trying to read the player names.

Here is how you do the names:

Before each name, the bytes are for example 000C. That is '12' in decimal. That means the name is 10 letters long (+2, because the length value 000C is also included). Only even values are allowed for the length value, so if a name is a odd number length (9, 11...) you add a byte of "00" after the last letter in the name. This is a little hard to explain without examples... I really suggest just getting a cheap laptop, you'll have more fun.

I'd like everyone to imagine this conversation with Royalmenow subbed in for JLnhlsegafan & then try to imagine not jumping into oncoming traffic next chance you get.
