RedScorpion managed me to make a version of this patch that is compatible to all PAL versions (it even is also compatible with the NTSC version).

If you re-download the patch from the first post, you will find the subfolder "short_NTSC_PAL". You can apply this patch (alttp_msu1_short.ips) on any headerless ALTTP rom (PAL/NTSC, doesn't matter) to have msu1. All pcm packages are compatible with it as well (patched rom name must (of course) still be alttp_msu.sfc to be compatible with all pcm sets).

However, this patch should be incompatible with some other patches you find on this site (since it uses free space in the inexpanded area, other than the "old" alttp_msu1.ips). But those hacks are for the US version anyways.
Also, it has no msu video (try to find it in all languages...).
So for the US version I still recommend using the "old" patch (to have patch compatibility and a video) though the "short" patch is also compatible.

That was fast - I checked compatibility with both G versions (20555, 20662), E and F, US (NTSC), J 1.0, Rev2(B). All compatible.

Also the espanol and swedish translations at romhacking is compatible....

So in short - no version found yet that isn't compatible Very Happy

It's of course also compatible with Goddess of Wisdom (uses the E rom, which is covered), and parallel remodel. Parallel Worlds (1.3) already has the possibility for msu included (by qwerty). Parallel Worlds (1.0) is compatible as well (if anybody wants to play it, maybe because there is a German version available).
All other rom hacks that do not use asm in the area 0xdb600-0xdb7ff should be compatible as well, if it isn't you need to use the the "old patch" with the video, that uses expanded areas.

Awesome work, Conn. Was the PAL compatibility the only change to the patch?

Oh it's not a change, it's more like a completely new patch with a different approach (alttp was my very first msu patch and thus the code is a bit sophisticated). The new code is much more clean thus having the high compatibility (pal and ntsc), but doesn't have the video anymore (the video is obsolete, we do not have it in another language than English). Also it uses free Rom space in the native Rom size, so expansion isn't necessary anymore, but disadvantage of this is that it might be incompatible with some of my other patches (item adjusting or whatever).

So I'd still recommend the old patch with video, but can also understand if people want to play alttp in their mother tongue, therefore the new (pal compatible).

If you download the patch package you still find the old "alttp_msu1.ips" with video support first. The new patch "alttp_msu1_short.ips" is in the subfolder "short_ntsc_pal".
My brain didn't come up with a better name Embarassed
