Would it be possible to run a game from the Jaguar Memory Track?

Well the flash chip on the memory track is only capable of storing 1mbit of data, so there isn't much to work with. The only way I could think of would be to have code on a CD that reads the entire contents of the flash chip and then puts it into the Jag's memory to run. But that seems like a total waste of time, you might as well just burn your 1mbit of code onto a CD.

I did plug the Memory Track into the Jag without the CD back in the day. I hoped to find something secret and small, some Jag enhanced Pong or Asteroids game or something. All I got was the standard Memory Track interface. I suppose I should be amazed that it even worked haha ;)

This was actually my next question.

To make BJL works you a loader program into the jaguar, how you can have it running with the memory track on? The only solution it's to load it from the CD or replace the ROM.
