I was just looking at this one site I'm always on and they have gotten smart instead of having a US Title that is from Japan they list just the Japanese Title for games that weren't released in the US so I guess that kind of solves my problem.

Without looking it up, I'm going to take a wild guess there's naked ladies revealed as you remove tiles.
If they were a large background image, it likely would not be possible with the NES tile limitations.
I know Puzznic had dirty girl pictures as backgrounds originally in the Japanese arcade version, but for the western arcade version and console ports it was censored out (though it looks like the X68000 included it as an option).
Supposedly the Arcade game rewarded players for successfully clearing certain stages by presenting them with drawings of partially clothed women.Isn't that the same thing. lol
No, the NES and Famicom versions of Super Mario Bros have the exact same PRG- and CHR-ROMs inside. Just not the same board.
I remember Nintendo DMCA'd the game, which is why they're not selling it. But releasing it for free means Nintendo could still sue them. (even if suing someone for a 2600 game these days ranks right there with some of the other poor decisions they've made.)
I use either a GameCube controller or the Classic controller. Both work well.
Emulation on Android has been a thing since 2012. The first tablet with built-in controls was the Archos GamePad. I still have mine and it still does well. It does PSP emulation nicely. There have been many others, though trying to get a hold of one now is becoming difficult. But emu on Android with bluetooth or usb controllers is easy.
That's because these games are Homebrew games, not available commercially during the original NES lifespan.
The game was made by the user Khan in 2014-2015 I believe. It was made from scratch using the 6505 assembly.
So yeah, even though apparently all of the commercial NES roms have been dumped there are still plenty homebrew roms yet to be dumped. All of Khan;s games seem to only be available through his site.
Fair enough. But then again, running Atari 2600 games on a soft-modded Wii or Android is a fun thing.
You could just emulate the 2600 on an Android tablet with a bluetooth controller, or an Android TV box with a USB controller. Buy your games legitimately, but emulate them. Much easier and most 2600 emulators are 100% accurate.
Oh I actually wasn't aware of that.
Nice to know.
However, it seems like the only possible way to get the ROM now is to buy the 4-in-1 package from Khan's site here:
It seems like the actual standalone E.T. ROM is out of stock since a long time ago.
So it's either buying the 4-in-1 or nothing, I'm not sure if the guy actually sells the standalone ROM though, as it is not available anywhere else.
The front-loader NES DID have AV (composite) output, on the side of the console.
It was REMOVED from the later (top-loader) model (because it was a cheap re-release and so they cut corners, and in 1993, it was almost certainly deemed not important enough to keep. It was about five or so years before DVD took off and that is probably what forced people in America to even notice composite.)
(though its Famicom counterpart, the AV Famicom did the opposite. Because the original (1983) Famicom only supported RF and apparently in Japan there WAS demand for the upgrade.)
It seems there IS an AV version of the top-loader NES but it was EXTREMELY rare and the few people who got one said they got it back in the day by calling Nintendo and complaining about the lack of AV. If I had to make a guess, maybe those were originally used as demo models (since you know, they want to make it look better in the store).
But my everlasting dream of playing E.T. on my NES is not fulfilled yet
It's not possible for the Atari 2600, because it has no AV input on the console. But in principle you could do something on the Atari 5200, 7800, Intellivision, or ColecoVision that operates like the Expansion Module #1 for ColecoVision, but plays NES games or whatever else instead:
From what I heard, that is ONLY the version 2 Flashback (which I've heard as such goes for a premium these days). Supposedly that was the only one written on clone 2600 hardware. The other versions (now they're up to 7?) were Fami-clone (with repogrammed games) or something else not directly compatible with actual Atari cartridges.
Oddly enough it'd be easier to go in the other direction, since consoles like the Atari 5200 & 7800, Intellivision, and ColecoVision offered A/V inputs on the cart slot or an expansion port. The Atari 2600 doesn't have one, but it's how all those machines were able to tap the built-in AV/RF for their expansion modules.
For whatever reason we stopped seeing video inputs with later consoles, though I think the PC Engine has one on the expansion slot, and the Game Gear has a proprietary video input format. Not sure about the Jaguar -- don't think so, but Atari had AV inputs on the 7800 expansion slot, so it seemed to be a trend with them.
It's funny how people often assume Atari 2600 emulation is trivial, when it's actually one of the toughest consoles (especially early consoles) to emulate accurately. And Atari consoles could push a ridiculously high onscreen color count, something the NES could never mimic.
