    Can anyone tell me how many original gameboy games a 4Mbits cart can hold, and on also how many gameboy color. (I know its a pathetic amount of memory but not sure how many gb games could be put on it.)

    My average rom size for GBC games is like 500kbs so you do the math.

    well, gbc games are at most(correct me if I'm wrong) 1mbit/1024kb, so not much to work with.

    Most of the original GB games I have are like, 256kb. Tiny little things. In fact I'm pretty sure Tetris is only 88kb. Now that's ridiculously small. GBC games run at about 1MB, maybe 2 for the bigger games like the Zeldas, Pokemon, etc.

    Its pretty crazy how small some of those huge gameboy games that can take dozens of hours to beat like the dragon warrior series. Heck in mexico I've seen some gameboy flashcarts a while back that carry like 500 or so roms on one cart :S

    of course, no GBÂ flashcart that I know of has the facility to store more than one save game, so the question is a little moot.
