I appreciate your effort, but it's probably illegal to distribute a file that contains everything needed to assemble the complete game (Batman (U) [!].nes). For example, doppelganger's SMB disassembly, while still somewhat illegal, omits the CHR-ROM.
Thanks for pointing that out, it totally slipped my mind! I'll edit my post with an updated file. :)

???

The few precedents set regarding this (e.g. Sega v. Accolade) is that disassembling is fair use. Posting the code online however is not.
