From the Author's Website & ROMHacking.net:

MultiPatch is an all-in-one file patching (and patch creation) solution. With this one program, you can apply IPS, UPS, PPF, XDelta, BSDiff, or BPS patches to files. You can also create IPS, UPS, XDelta, BSDiff or BPS patches. Everything is contained in one application, it is not a front-end and thus does not need to rely on external tools to accomplish the job.

What is a patch you ask?

From ROMHacking.net:

(Patches are) a file that contains information on how to change data of a ROM image. (ROM) Hacks/Fan Translations are distributed as patches because the distribution of pre-altered ROM images is illegal due to several reasons. There are a few formats for patches like IPS (Which is the most popular format), PPF and NINJA, which can be applied with appropriate tools, however ROM hackers also often write small executables that patch the game on their own.

All that said, here are links to get Fan Translations and ROM Hacks.

Fan Translations from ROMHacking.net (Make sure to select FULLY PLAYABLE under STATUS so you get complete translations for your favorite games on your favorite platforms)
