Hi Henning. I moved your helpdesk ticket to one of the SFC3 forums for better visibility. (helpdesk is more for website support)

We'll need some more info. Mainly, what operating system and patch level of the game?

Yep, what Bonk said, what version do you have the game patched to.
The pen is truly mightier than the sword.  And considerably easier to write with.

google SFC3 Files, they should have the patch on there.

All the SFC3 patches should also be available here:
ftp://www.dynaverse.net/sfc3/Patches/

I also am mostly unfamiliar with the details of patching SFC3. I seem to recal something about the latest one not necessarily being the best?

Try searching for posts by Pestalence including SFC3 and patch... actually lemme give it a go and see what I find...

Ah here we go...

Pestalence's instructions:

(some parts may be outdated - check date on post - see "updated" link below as well...)

Current link to patch:

Ah an "updated" sfc3 patch post:

http://www.dynaverse.net/forum/index.php/topic,163344600.0.html

... so I'd say do a bit of reading and searching and you should find the answers here somewhere.

Glad to hear you got it working.  :)

The links do work, I just expect your browser (ie?) does not like them. (You can always use an ftp client if you need to download files from us, if your browser cannot.)

ftp://www.dynaverse.net/

I recommended getting files for SFC stuff here, I cannot account for the integrity of files obtained elsewhere.

Happy hunting!
