Which Super Mario are you running and where exactly did you download your copy of TI-Boy SE? (some versions are outdated)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

What is the app size reported for each when you run the makeapp program?

Yeah, that's not the normal size. You're not used a zipped folder with a ROM in it, right? You need to use the actual ROM file itself.

When you open the ROM with makeapp, it should show the internal name. For Super Mario Land 2, it should say MARIOLAND2. For The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, it should say ZELDA.
