Finally got around to trying this, but it's an IPS only? Are you afraid of the Chinese pirates suing you for copyright infringement infringement? :D

Anyhow, I'm blown away by how much work has been done to this thing! It's freaking amazing! It's hard to recognize this as the original. Unfortunately it still suffers from the tedious combat and balance issues of the original :(

More likely fear of a suit from Square Enix.

Looks like it probably is hackable to oversize BNROM, if I'm understanding the documentation correctly.

I guess the automatic CHR banking could be tricky, but I have no idea how much the translation uses it.

It's already a 2MB game, so it's not like you're going to find a donor that's not made from entirely new parts.

BNROM has no battery-backed WRAM.

I'm referring to ease of hardware reproduction. BNROM's canonically not having PRG-RAM is irrelevant, since a 2MiB game wouldn't fit on the PCB that was used by the only game that used BNROM anyway.

Mapper 34 with <=8K CHR, as implemented by emulators following the guidance on the wiki, is equivalent to a 74HC377 (octal D flip-flop) for holding the bank number and a 74HC20 (dual 4-input NOR) for decoding a 6264 SRAM at $6000 and avoiding bus conflicts. Some other emulators will keep the NINA ports at $7FFD-$7FFF active even with <=8K CHR.
