Basically ppfomatic opens fine, but when i go to apply the 184.108.40.206 patch it just says "patching cd image now, hold on" and that's it. That's my problem, unless this is normal but I watched the tutorial for installing it and it didn't seem to take nearly that long to patch.
I've waited 20 40 mins one time and tried multiple different fft iso files and tried using converters to turn img into iso. Not really sure what else to do at this point.
It will take time dependent on your PC. I don't think it's based on the processor speed, since I patched a ROM at work on a vastly superior machine and it took ten times as long than on my home machine. Just let it go overnight and see what happens.
Yeah, I don't care how bad your PC is, it shouldn't take more than a couple of seconds to patch. If even that. It's gotta be the ISO. It's always the ISO. Good thing there's like a billion of them out there.
Okay it must have been a problem with ppf-o-matic because i downloaded a different version (it just says ppf-o-matic3 instead of ppf-o-matic30 like the one that you can download off this site) and it worked, even though it took like 30 minutes for it to apply the patch. Thanks for the help guys.
