Since I have sold out of the limited edition cartridges, I have decided to release the final ROM for Muncher. Also included is the source code, which may be interesting for some. I have to warn you though, there aren't many comments in the code at all.

I intend the ROM to be used with emulators and flash carts only, not for making your own cartridge(s) and most certainly not for anyone to make money off of.

The manual can be found in this post:

Enjoy :)

Thank you for sharing this! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

 

I missed out on the limited edition. Are there plans to do a standard cart release at some point?

Later. :)

I wish I could say there were. Albert doesn't seem interested in putting it in the store, at least for now. I don't plan on making any more myself, just because I'd rather spend that time working on a new game or something else.

What we really need is for some smart people to create one-off 2600 carts for homebrewers.  Have a USB connector on the PCB and just enough flash for a game.  When someone discovers your game way after the first run NO PROBLEM!  Just whip out a one off board, flash it and package that sucker.

 

I've already experienced this problem with my M.M.S.B.C. II game.

I'll have to do that at some point, thanks for the suggestion. Not sure when I'll get around to it though.
