Ya. On a GBA card, the maps and palletes n' stuff are saved as files (probably.) But on NES carts, the game refers to the games HARDWARE rather than software; it must refer to special chips rather than to files saved on the disk. Maybe someone makes something that would let you modify the chips, but I doubt it.
