Yea, the few hundred NES titles... I'm afraid there won't be the FC redumping enthusiasm, which is where it's most needed.

With regards to the CopyNES, how good is it at dumping Famicom games via a simple 60-to-72 pin cart adapter? How many Westerners have complete Famicom collections? Is there a go-between for bridging the West-East divide, so that the Famicom scene can be tapped into? Maybe Chris?

What we need is an NSRT-style project, for the NES/Famicom, where ROMs are in UNIF format. No more mappers, just boards, and ROM data as well as headers would be checked. Then redump everything, build a new database, etc. A hell of a lot of work, but it needs to be done, especially when automatically verified ROMs are now more of a problem than emulation inaccuracies. Once the next round of CopyNES's gets out there, it will be the best time to start. Otherwise as each year goes by, it will become more and more difficult to get carts redumped and a new database created.
