The ROM was released earlier on - just save support doesn't work with flashcarts yet.
Please be patient with me, I'm rather new to all of this. By Rom I assume you mean the downloadable version meant to be used on the emulator and the flashcart. I read through so much yesterday. It was my understanding that you had released the ROM but Eric was working on an affordable/savable cart. Did the run he was releasing in 2010/11 ever come out? Seems a shame after all the drama if they hadn't. If I understood correctly from the video, you had one of his Betas? I am not internet savvy or tenacious enough to get the emulator to work. I'm afraid the flashcart would confuse me just as much. Every emulator/flashcart video I've watched starts off easy enough but it seems there ends up being allot of fiddling that most tech minded people take for granted.
