Quickdev16 SNES dev cart appeared


I’ve said it before, but I am not that big of a fan of SPC. That being said, it would be cool to see what people can cook-up with this.

Quickdev16 is a developer cartridge for the Super Nintendo and it can be used to upload homebrew roms to the console. You can upload rom images tup to the size of 16Mbit. Currently NTSC and PAL SNES consoles are supported by using a dedicated CIC chip on the Quickdev16 cartridge. Homebrew roms and games that depend on the save game feature or that use DSP chips are not supported by this release. You can connect the cartridge via usb to your computer and upload roms with a command line tool. Currently Linux,OS X and Windows software builds are available.

Important Note: If you don’t know how to use the comandline and just interested in runing games on your Super Nintendo, this isn’t the right project for you. This is a developer tool and not a plug and play solution.
