I noticed that BEX can compile genesis roms with files outside the script, and this can be done with gym audio files and bin picture files. This got me to thinking that maybe I could create a menu that could load genesis roms.
The reason I want to do this is because I plan on making a repro cartridge, and that the game I want to copy takes up about 1/4th space on the rom chip I plan on ordering, so why not cram another game on there? And yes, I know about flash carts. I just like having something that's permanent, and plus I like creating stuff.
The only thing missing is the program to combine the roms. Any idea on where to find that program? I tried just merging the files together, but only the menu rom loaded, and wouldn’t load another in Fusion. Unsure if this requires the PCB attached to that thread or not to get it working.
I guess the question is does the rom work in emulation after it’s been put together? If so, it probably doesn’t need any special mappers, otherwise the PCB file attached to the tutorial thread is needed (though, it’s an 8MB board, so 2x the space required for the tutorial).
