ROM Corruption videos

Have you guys seen those NES rom corruption videos on Youtube before? I tried the rom corrupter on my WIP UzeJump game, and it was kinda interesting



I'll try corrupting some other games tomorrow

Uzebox actually kind of had a built-in ROM corrupter: the old bootloader combined with an SD card making sloppier contact :P It actually gave me lots of headache in the earlier times developing Flight of a Dragon, occasionally getting me trying to hunt down obscure behaviors which in the reality only happened due to such corruptions. I discovered the problem when a corrupted byte happened in the data region, showing up as a miscolored pixel pair.

Sure it is fun when you do it intentionally, however not so much when you are developing!
