Artemis - no idea if you can help me with this or not, but:
I re-downloaded the ROM/snes9x, patched it, etc. Since I wanted to speed to the fight with La Puella, I used cheats. Unfortunately, that resulted in weird brown stuff - the menus would "lag" on me, for lack of a better term. Whenever I used the Item-Making cheats found on Gamefaqs, if I went to back out of the equipment menu, I would be stuck there until I minimized the emulator.
In addition to that, the bosses were actually replaced by OTHER BOSSES! When I fought the Lizard Man, it was me v the Big Catfish, who I killed in one shot. When I got to the actual Big Catfish, it was the Tarantula (sjfhsdjhfjsdhfsjdhfjag, I HATE THIS BOSS) and a Follower. Needless to say, I got my ass kicked.
I'm not sure if it's an emulator version problem or not - when I played your patches in the past, it was on snes9x v1.51, but I saw that there's a snes9x v1.52, so I used that.
