    Licensing. EA has had exclusivity on the NFL team and player licenses for many years now.
    Awesome. I didn't report you by the way, I know how frustrating it can be to upload an exe and people complain about viruses. That's why it's crucial to include sources in case there's issues with that.

    You don't even need to do that, the app has a "Google" button that automatically searches "X nes box art"

    Quick question. What tutorial is everyone using to hack the NES Mini so that you can use this tool? Also, is there a certain type of ROM that you have to download or will any ROM site work?

    Can this tool backup the original image thats on the classic so it can be returned to stock or is it once and done? I'm getting my classic on Tuesday and want to dive in right out of the box with this.

    yeah it worked after a buncha tries

    so, followup question. i threw about 40 games on mine, and its great. but theres a couple games that dont behave (like battletoads or the damn pal version of CV3 i put on like an idiot lol)

    how do i go about removing just those games, and adding some new ones? is the tool smart enough to see whats on the nes mini already and just delete/add accordingly if i select all the same games in the tool again, with just the broken ones unchecked?

    This tool works with Famicom Mini too or does it have specific problems to handle? I would like to add some games to mine, including FDS games (and some NES with SRAM).

    Yep, this emulator can't emulate VRC mappers. Actually it's possible to write to NES Mini but it will not work.

    Madmonkey (author of original hack) found bug in my app. Maybe it will work more stable when I fix it (soon).

    Not yet. Maybe I will do it later. The problem that I need to know correct game IDs to hide them. App can't read and show list of preinstalled games. But I can read them via UART cable. But there are no 100% guaranty that every version of NES Mini using same IDs for preinstalled games.

    I hope that will be fixed too after update. Testing required.

    Theoretically it should work but I can't guarantee it. Seems like it can emulate FDS games but I have not tested it yet.

    Thank you! Awesome tool.

    Sorry if this question is a bit OT but does someone know if there are any difference between the pal/ntsc releases of the Mini? I hope they have ditched the 50hz conversion in PAL.

    Cheers.

    To my knowledge, 50hz is no longer a thing in PAL regions due to Digital video signals becoming mainstream. Technically the PAL/US NES classic edition should be the exact same, unless they replaced some games more common in the PAL region back in the 1980s

    Is it possible to use this to extract the ROMs from the NES Mini?

    Do you think that the Loopy's Super Mario Bros. 2 J MMC3 hack will work?

    I'm not at home right now, but I hope to test as soon as I can
