SNES cart hacks

Post by Turbo Tax 1.0 » Mon Apr 14, 2008 6:19 pm

I just finished my secret of mana 2 cart
used the guide here http://snesdev.romhack.de/

It was kind of a pain getting everything together to program the eproms. was a fun mod though. Has anyone else tried to mod some carts?

I'm trying to make a starfox 2 cart next

finished my starfox 2 cart last night. Was a little easier than the SD3 cart, since it only had one eprom and no 74ls139 (chip with glue all around it)

I think there would be a market if you were to offer SNES game carts with unreleased games on them; or an easy way to connect a cart to a computer via USB and flash a game across to it (for rare titles you can't even buy on e-bay anymore, or unreleased titles).

Worth considering??

I did consider making more and trying to sell some. I probably will actually but I am still to addicted to sd3

the starfox 2 cart cost me about 20$ to make
stunt race fx cart 10$
and an eprom 8$
and some little things

the sd3 cart cost about 40$
illusion of gaia ~12$
4 eproms and the 74ls139

the eprom programer was about 35$

and I had tons of failed attempts at programming them, didnt set the jumpers on the programmer up right :P

I finally made a decent label for sd3 too

Wouldn't this be considered piracy/selling pirated games?
Things I need to purchase for my NES Laptop:
1X PSone screen
6X 1.2v 3500mAh sub-C's
1X 1/8'' to RCA stereo Adapater
1X Radioshack repair kit

..yeaaaaah...

Do you think you could make another Star Fox 2 one and sell it to me for around 20-25 bucks. I'd really like to have it.
