In fact, I'm not aware of anything that actually uses them.
Quote from: Mugi on November 16, 2016, 09:00:35 PMpowerpack has a detection for rom headers and to my knowledge, it just skips them if found.i havent used mine in a while but i have a shiny memory of seeing the "headered rom" ....loadingat the top of the screen when you set your rom and hit play.as such, while it takes both kinds, the result is the same. Im fairly sure such routines were simply added to maintain compatibility with both types of roms insead of binding it to either headered or headerless.

Of course it didn't work and people complained about it because it just made you have to jump through an extra hoop to play your ROMs.
