Default NES Popeye hack "Pimpeye"

Hi,

I'm working on a simple project to get my start in ROM hacking. Basically, Popeye is a pimp, Olive is an exhibitionist hooker, and Bluto is a cop who throws donuts at you. I've incorporated elements of sex, drugs, guns, and money, which are the staples of the pandering lifestyle. ;-)

An interesting part of this project was figuring out how the title screen data was stored. I found the data and successfully bit-mapped the 3 control bytes at the beginning of every data string. This enabled me to zero out that entire area and recode by hand (no editors!) the title screen using 227 bytes of my own choosing :-)

Does anyone know if it's feasible to write a new NSF file using Famitracker and insert it in place of the "spinach" song? I want to do a cover of "Superfreak" and put in 8 bars of the basic background music during the spinach sequence. (the spinach is now Viagra, by the way)

Anyone got any ideas?
