Hmm.... that's an interesting idea, but it will likely fail because: The SNES has a larger address bus than the GB. On the SNES, the unit can address several megabytes of ROM from the system. On the GB, it can address only 32k of ROM without resorting to MBCs (memory bank controllers). As such, an SNES is not aware of, and cannot use, gameboy MBCs, leaving your SNES games stuck at 32k, if it works at all.
