was it done yet?

long ago i used to come here

& i remember someone selling carts to make them multiple games in 1

I was wondering if he ever finished it & selling the kits?

How hard would it be to Hack a Nes Cart to make it Flashable to The game you like per cart?. like 1 at a time?.


thanks!

The real issue is that there are so many different configurations inside NES carts that compatability with most games for one cart is very difficult.

edit:  oh and it's been a long time since he's edited his site or returned email so most think his steam ran out...

Megaman II and Castlevania are both mmc1 boards but castlevania has chr rom while Megaman II has chr ram.  The guy who was making the flash board wouldn't have been able to run megaman II on it. 

The only way you're going to be able to get this done for yourself is to study up on nes game boards (nesdev.com has lots of resources), buy an eprom/flash programmer, get a soldering iron, and make multiple homemade carts.  You'd make the carts with sockets on them so that you can unplug the 29F flash memory and be able to flash new games on them. 

Most games have two chips, so you'll have to program both chips seperately.  Where you get roms, they are usually .nes files.  You'll need to learn how to remove the header and properly split the files.

You could play the majority of the games on less than 10 home made carts.  You could probably play most of the games you would want to play on less than 5 if you pick and choose. 

There is currently no simpler solution.

Hey, no offence, but this will be my last post in this topic.

From where it seems that your skill levels are, there is no way you're going to be making a usb programmer/nes cart in one.  What you're talking about is building an eprom programmer on a game board board (flash programmer).  You're talking about prototyping out circuit boards and writing the software.  I'm too lazy to take up a project like this.  I think the guy you were talking about earlier worked on his for over a year before running out of steam.  Not to mention all the money he put into it.

Try something simple first.  Take an excitebike.  Unsolder both the eproms.  Find yourself the milk and nuts rom.  Research the ines header and figure how to properly split the rom and remove the header.  Fill 2 27C512 erpoms with the chr and prg (create files to burn that repeats the chr and the prg to the full size of the chips).  If you want to use this cart for other carts, solder some sockets down first.  Plug the eproms into the correct sockets.  Play the game! 

Those early games are the simplist because they require no rewiring.  It only gets more fun from there!  Good luck!
