And in many cases, Im not even talking about large rom files. Im talking about actual released rom cartridges that clearly exist/existed in that format originally/natively but for whatever reason, as the years have passed, the only rom images you can find for them on the net are the ones that were modified from bin to xex.

You say you understand, but I think you don't.


The process of convertering ROMs to XEXs means that all cartridge-related code will be removed to make them work when loaded from disk.  The XEX is just not a ROM anymore.

If you have .CARs you an simply remove the first 16 bytes or use this:
