Easier SNES Cart Modding

Voultar has just posted a video that shows how to use his new adapter boards to create easier and safer SNES cartridge hacks.  This is something that’s been important to many people in the retro-gaming world, as there’s many amazing language translation patches available that allow people to play games that would never normally be available to them.

Of course, you can always turn to ROM carts for things like this, however the thought of buying the original game cartridge and simply updating it with the translation patch is extremely appealing to many people.  You can dump the original ROM that’s on the cart you own, patch it with the translation, then flash it back using Voultar’s adapters and a programmer.  This is a 100% legal way to play a ROM patch and is aesthetically pleasing for people who like to see the original cart being used.

For me personally, I’ll be using this method for games that are special or important to me, then using my ROM cart for everything else.  That’s the beauty of stuff like this though:  Choose whichever fits your needs best!
