In this tutorial, I will show you how to create Homebrew NES cartridges. Specifically, I am going to use the Tecmo Bowl 2013 ROM created by the community of tecmobowl.org to create a TB2k13 cartridge for the Nintendo Entertainment System!
While this tutorial will show you how to make a TB cart, it is NOT a license to make illegal reproductions of cartridges. Please be responsible, and do not do anything illegal with the information contained in this video. If you DO sell home-made cartridges, only do so if the other party KNOWS that it is a repro. As a collector of NES games, I definitely do not want to be getting pirated carts off of eBay.
The Neo-Geo AES/MVS market has been flooded with pirated games from unscrupulous sellers. Don't be one of those people. Those people are jerkfaces.

Well, I finally got approval for the Tecmo Bowl 2013 Cart project. So here it is — the full tutorial on how to write your ROMs and make a Tecmo Super Bowl 2013 cartridge! I'm very happy to be able to do this with the support of tecmobowl.org, and I'm very grateful for their approval to host the ROM on my site.
Starting soon, you will be able to buy a fresh, brand-new and professionally made Tecmo Super Bowl cart from tecmobowl.org. Please support these guys, either with your hits, or with your purchases. They definitely deserve it for all of the hard work. Also, consider supporting the Gridiron Heroes project. It is a social version of TSB, updated and modernized for facebook. Well, enough blathering...here comes the science:
