    Step 4: Advanced ROMS

    ROMS are just not really that practical. They are hard-coded where you cant modify them, and basically are for BIOS chips in Computers. But Atari thought otherwise for their console. Make a rom for a game, and its strong and it wont be destroyed. It worked good until CD-Roms came of age. Now, the N64 is having problems with cost: ROMS are expensive! There is 1 type made in consoles, which is the "rom" itself. No modifying possible. There is also the EP rom and the EEP rom, which are used in BIOSes. Much cheaper, but you -can- erase them. The problem with some games made before SNES/Genesis is that some ARE eproms. Cheap and easy to destroy. The whole concept is lost.
