There are PCBs for homebrew cartridges offered here regularly. I think user roadfighter and Alexey offered them in the past.
No need to butcher original MSX games.

So, what exactly are you planning to do?

Making a cartridge can help for software that does not redefine characters but it will not work for others. You can use a flash-rom or ESE-RAM for it. I think you will have to modify the software in many cases.

Indeed building a cartridge can be a fun hobby, but also if you are planning to play a lot buying a ready made flash cartridge might not be a bad idea. See ie. MegaFlashROM SCC+SD or Carnivore 2.

Indeed, Alexey is right here. It seems I've been compiling way too many BIN-files lately Smile

This is kind of pointless statement as if the game would do that we would not be having this discussion in a first place. Big smile

MFR or Carnivore2 are way too expensive for such experiments. A simple flash cartridge should do the trick. Single- or multi-mapper defines the price range. I can offer the solution if necessary.
