    A clean ROM is a ROM that has not been modified at all. EG, straight from a real cart.
    (No patches, triming or anything done.)

    Yeah. Although it's getting rarer, sometimes the scene doesn't release a clean rom for certain regional variants of games. Some early GBA titles were like this (meaning they only were available without an intro or trainer when you make your own dump).

    I remember that!
    I'm glad that the scene does not stand for that crap anymore.
    Now, if a rom is modified by the dumper is is called a nuke.

    It's a rom that washes every day [​IMG]

    Jokes apart, this term was first used in NDS Scene when NEOTeam released modified ROMs that only worked on their FlashCarts, using a fake Group named GST.

    I think we all know what a nuke really is, and it can be because of a thousand different reasons.


    A clean rom is one without semen all over its chin..

    I hated them! You had to wait like ten minutes for the game to start. At least on my crappy PC with VisualBoyAdvance [​IMG]

    It's a ROM that has no STIs. At least that's what it told you, but 3 weeks later you can't stop scratching your balls.
