I don't know about everyone else, but I would prefer savekey support.

Why that?

Why that?

CPUWIZ made me a savekey and since I've had it, I've played the homebrews that supported it more than any of the others. I really wish more games supported it. I know everyone doesn't have a savekey, so it might be more practical to have the cart keep the high score. I just like the concept of the savekey. It's an interesting accessory. Maybe add high score support for the carts and release the binary later with savekey support for those with Harmony Carts.  :)

Harmony is a great tool and I am using it regularly too for playing and development.

 

But since Harmony, homebrew sales have dropped very significantly. So saving on the cart instead of a SaveKey is one last benefit and incentive for people who are not collectors but still support homebrewing by buying carts.

Unless the cart utilizes speech, I would prefer the flash ROM saves option. Sometimes I forget to plug in the AtariVox or heaven forbid it gets lost in the game clutter. :P

Good job, on the other hand I've experienced some difficulties at times to go from one tunnel to another, lack of precision.
