Excuse me if I don't believe you, but, wow. You can't believe how rediculous that sounds.

If you wanted to rip the roms off of your carts and burn them to another cart, you'd need to get an EEPROM burner and a cart to write to.

Am I missing something? If you own the games and you want to play them on the NES... why not just insert the games in your NES and play them? [img]/wwwthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Anyway... I can't give you a real answer... I know next to nothing about the hardware stuffs. Sorry. Maybe Drag might be able to help... I know he's working on an NES homebrew that he's planning on putting on a cart.

lol Well, unless it's a multi-cart, it sounds crazy to me too. But that'd be hard on a NES probably, because...

Won't he also need to have the right chips in that cart for the mapper that game uses? I know lots of mappers are used by many carts, but that sounds like a pain in the ass unless it could be stored in some kind or of a ppassthrough plug (can't think of a good phrase...thinking of something like an N64 cart inserted into a copier to simulate the bootcode of a game).

Yeah, I would think so. I only know it from what I've read http://www.nullsleep.com/treasure/nsf_cart_guide/here</a>. I'm sure you'd need all the right chips on the cart for the game to work.

My friend does this sort of thing with his GBA, I would guess it to be similar but on a NES I guess not

So do many people on this forum <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>.

The difference is that all of the hardware for the GBA is in the GBA (for the most part). NES carts had extra graphics and sounds chips on the carts themselves. These extra chips are needed by the games to work. So, for example, if you were to try and rip SMB3 cart and put it on a SMB1 cart, it wouldn't work. That's not to say that you would need the exact same cart for the rom, just one with the same set of chips (like most of the early Nintendo NES carts, I imagine).

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.

You just pulled all of that completely out of your ass, didn't you? Because you sure don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
