It isn't off-topic. You're trying to share something with us here, and I was having difficulty accessing it. Wouldn't have been any different had I encountered a bug that prevented this from running on my machine. Come on, now, you're an admin, we can discuss this in a civil manner. I'm not even mad!
I'll admit, though, I should've thought twice before applauding you for your fine work here. I'm sorry.

Apparently, there's a bunch of sites that don't have clean ROMs (e.g. SonicStrike - they NOP'd out the checksum code).Sonic 2 doesn't have a checksum routine, only Sonic 1 does...
Strangely enough, Sonic 2 does! I had an issue yesterday where Sonic 2 would red-screen after being hot-patched before the ROM started. Turns out it was a byteswapping problem, which caused the newly-calculated checksum to be incorrect. Though I do remember that several years ago, S2 didn't have this issue... (Maybe I was just using a bad ROM?)

Now we need a custom version of S2MP3TOOL for this =D.
Slightly offtopic, but I've been wanting to make a new S2MusicTool for a while, possibly using WinAmp. But I would need to know how the original works. Then we could have one that would work for any emulator.
