  • Utilities:

    GROM - Quoted from Bart: "It converts SMD files to BIN. It is much faster than uCon, and easier to use in my opinion. It is small, and also portable, the source code is included, and it is public domain so anyone can use it for whatever purposes they want! It comes with a 32-bit DOS executable and one for FreeBSD/i386 (ELF) as well. SMD ROM documentation by your's truly has been included also, this may be useful for any ROM hackers or Genesis emulator authors."
