    I once disassembled one of these for the heck of it. Definitely a custom mapper, unlike any I've seen before; it would be virtually impossible to run it on a flash cart, because flash carts tend to only support standard mappers.
    Even if the cart was good and you somehow managed to get a good dump out of it, it would be impossible to run it on any flash cart that wasn't specifically designed for that ROM image.

    While I would count them under the weirdness I was thinking more about the stuff from the nesdev list, most of which were genuine games.

    Alot of the time this is the case, they'll be the same games over and over again, but with small ROM hacks applied.

    Where did you get V5 firmware? The official site only shows FW4 K1.04e

    I hope firmware 6 will support listing games alphabetically. I had to drag and drop my games onto my SD card 6 times, before they'd finally list right, without going T-Z, and then #-S.

    Does FATsort not do much for you?
    https://fatsort.sourceforge.io/

    Also dragging and dropping might not do much of anything if your OS detects that no data is being changed.

    As Fast6191 said above, the files can be sorted by using a tool that can sort FAT tables, personally I just used my old copy of TotalCommander to copy them all in alphabetical order, because that was simpler.

    While sorting the files do ensure the ezgb.dat is the very first file in the table to optimize boot times. Since the file has to load first before the roms can displayed having it first ensures there's no wasted time looking for it in the FAT table.

    Would be great if the next firmware could show rom's file sizes.

    Like in parentheses after the ROM name scrolls by. Definitely useful!

    Why?
    I get having it on GBA stuff you might want to choose to burn to the NOR (or have to wait ? minutes to burn to it) but the jr is more or less instant loading (or at least you are going to be watching developer intros for probably several times longer than it takes to load from the omega).

    Umm... because I like to see fun games that was programmed in such small amounts of kilobytes. And ... why not?

    Limited screen space (160x144 is already hard to have readable text for a decent number of entries), limited memory, limited CPU. It might be trivial on a PC or modern tablet or something but given this has to run on a GB screaming along at 4MHz with nice 8 bit z80 instructions with maybe a 8 kilobytes of RAM (maybe a bit more if you are good), be accessed from the cart itself (though something might be able to be generated there). https://bgb.bircd.org/pandocs.htm#gameboytechnicaldata if you want tech specs for the GB.
    By way of example I have a bit more than 1000 files in my downloads folder. Did a ls - s -h in there to generate a text list of just sizes and file names (random sample in the code box below)
    33.6KiB for that one, which is more than even the fanciest MBC in common use.
    Code:
     2.5M 100_0049.JPG
     2.5M 100_0051.JPG
     2.4M 100_0052.JPG
     1.6M 100_0105.JPG
     2.9M 102_0091.JPG
     1.8M 102_0093.JPG
     4.0K 1064 - Eggo Mania (EU).cht
    At this point you would almost be better off running a program to generate it on a PC or something, and that rather takes away from the drag and drop thing. Real time reading might be somewhat doable but that would be another burden on things and I would rather have fast scrolling/page up-page down.
