> I didn't mean the original console i meant the cd version, surley the only difference between a cartridge and a cd is some sort of boot info on the cd.Will this not standard on all neo cd games allowing you to patch the rom file.

the "only" difference is that the game code is ENTIRELY different. the cd system has very little to do with the cart system, other than having the same CPU, video and audio chipset.
the NGCD has 7 MB of ram. how are you gonna fit a 60+ MB cart rom in there? or would you want to wait 30 seconds before performing a kick cause it needs to load the animation from CD all the time?
