Hello all! I've been searching a lot about this, without any luck.

I want to know if there is a way to make Famicom Disk System images (.fds files) from famicom or NES roms.

My idea is to have a way to play roms on real hardware, using stuff I already have, a famicom, a FDS ram cart and a FDS-parallel cable, and also FDSloader of course.

Is this possible? create FDS images from NES - FC ROMS? Even maybe many roms on one single FDS image, selectable with a menu, that'll be cool...

Thanks you all in advance for all info you can give about this! 8)

You can hack them possibly, basically rewriting the game with a base code of the original game. But then there's also just playing them on emulator like powerpak or FCEUX.

Sounds like something difficult to reach, at least for my knowledge. I had the idea that something already existed, since "dumpers" are around since many years ago... I guess I was wrong.

I'll check the powerpak, looks interesting (and a bit pricey).

Thanks for your reply!

For what you get, the PowerPAK is a reasonable price.

Old Chinese Game Copiers existed that in combination with Famicom Disk System could play specially hacked ROMs on Game Doctor formatted Famicom Disk System diskettes. But they are even more expensive than the PowerPAK and far less user friendly or useful.

Automated conversion of even NROM games to FDS is probably not possible due to $E000-$FFFF being occupied by BIOS.

Is someone still playing this kind of retro games? I love to play Famicom retro games but I can't find a good emulator. It would be nice someone to give some good advice about emulators for Famicom.
