Quoteadapters are available for some of the older consoles (like NES, SNES, and Genesis) that allow you to plug a SD card with a patch into them and will then run the patch with the game on the original consoles, and that these adapters only cost a fraction of the price of a Retro Freak.
Quote from: Jorpho on October 21, 2017, 01:20:15 AMIt is entirely possible to, say, use a patching program to generate a patch that will turn a Super Mario World ROM into Tales of Phantasia – the resulting patch will basically say "replace the entire contents of the ROM with this completely different 6 MB of data".So, any such adapter would be pretty much indistinguishable from a Flash cart and there's no reason it would cost any less.
Quote from: Psyklax on October 21, 2017, 05:03:04 AMI'm sure things like this appeal to people but I just can't understand how playing cartridges you didn't buy at retail on totally unofficial consoles is any more moral than playing a ROM on an emulator. Feels like something people tell themselves to help them sleep at night.
Quote from: AnimeOtakuDrew on October 30, 2017, 09:50:28 PMWhat my brother was talking about is something that you can plug a physical SNES or SFC cart into that also has a slot for and SD card so you can run patches on games you physically own, not ROMs of questionable origin downloaded to computer or SD card.
QuoteAlso, if I personally were to run a translation patch on a game that already has an official translation, it would be specifically for games reported to have significant changes or omissions in their translation (Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy IV or VI, etc.) so I could get a more accurate translation (in other words, I would not use a translation patch that just gives me the same translation as the official release).
