For a lot of people, EarthBound Zero isn't very fun because of the excessive level-grinding necessary, particularly during the early parts of the game. To help alleviate this problem, we've made a very small IPS patch that doubles the experience and the money you receive from enemies. According to some, this actually makes the game a little too easy, but for the first-time player, it's probably pretty decent.You can download the patch here. To use the patch:
- You'll also need an EarthBound Zero ROM. This you'll have to get yourself.
- You'll need an emulator for NES games of course.
- Many emulators have an "auto-patching" feature. Read the emulator documentation for details.
- If you need to hard-patch the ROM, look for utilities like Lunar IPS or jIPS.
