Simone Zanella's Emu Tools
CartGB, CartSNS, CartGEN and CartPCE are programs that can be used to extract
informations from: GameBoy, Super NES, Genesis and PC-Engine cartdrige images,
With the production of more and more emulators of old game consoles I believe that
serious collectors need new tools for automatically listing their titles.
This is not always possibile in an easy way: many old console makers didn't define a
standard header for cartridges, so in this case a manual intervention is necessary.
On the other hand, a few recent console share standard cartridge headers: these are the
Super Nes, the Game Boy and the Genesis. Moreover, with the birth of a solid emulator for
the PC-Engine (aka Turbo Graphics 16), a standard header has been defined, which includes
game title and a few other information; roms floating around on the web are in this
format, so I presume that a tool for extracting these values is also welcome.
The CARTxxx utilities come really handy when you want to build a list out of many roms
whose names are not useful (such as game.001), without wasting your time trying each and
every rom image. Also, they can be used to check if images are corrupted.
The programs included in this package have a common interface and let you format as you
like all informations deduced by game headers. Moreover, starting with version 1.4 it is
now possible to modify and update a few fields in the headers of the roms.
