how to get Mames in a Super Nintendo cart??

Post by michaelmason » December 10th, 2015, 2:50 pm

Hello everyone!

My question is simple, yet difficult.
It's mg understanding that arcade is a glorified snes game.
Is there a way to port a mame game onto a Super Nintendo cart?
I know some companies csn take .sfc roms and put them on the snes cartridge.
But what is the missing link between getting the mame rom and sending it off to
The company who would put it on a cartridge??
Any help on this would be awesome! I would love to see xmen arcade, the Simpsons arcade and Cadillacs and dinosaurs being played on snes!

Hi there... For this to work, the cartridge would need a copy of mame built to run on snes hardware... The sfc files work as the hardware required to run the game are part of the snes architecture and as such, as far as I can see, this would need some serious working out...
Ooer... No pictures...

What your asking is absolutely impossible.

Emulation needs a far more advanced system than the one emulated to work flawlessly, bt in that case you're in reverse, trying to emulate something powerfull on a far less powerfull system, there is absolutely no way that it would work
