Over the past month, I've been working on a semi-automatic multicart builder. It takes a whole bunch of NROM games that use vertical mirroring and stuffs them into a big mapper 34 multicart. The builder allows adding instructions for each game, and it allows adding multiple activities in a multicart as separate items. Here are a couple screenshots:

The one caveat is that the user has to find a 20-byte space in each ROM that isn't used by the game.

Very cool, like Arch said. It'd be cool to have an option to customize a BIOS screen, so that we can either get the classic orange font on a black background, or something really zany.

Also, I remember there being MMC1 and MMC3 multicarts, so will such a thing be implemented, or create a variant?

MMC1 and MMC3 multicarts generally need specific mappers that aren't very common. I was trying to fit this one into a well-implemented mapper for which both a RetroZone board and a Membler Industries board are known to exist: #34, BxROM.

Anyway, here are the builder and a sample collection.

This is fantastic.

Had fun playing a few different games, for some reason I am drawn to Lawn Mower and Thwaite...

Thank you for posting.
