I don't think so...
It's a ROM, that being Read-Only-Memory

That doesn't stop the naughty naughty ROMs people can get for their computers from getting .ips so that's why I wondered if it extended to the carts.

Sekna is correct; it can't be done becuase they use Read-Only memory.

When the term ROM is used to talk about a file on a computer, it is actuallly wrong. The file is an image and is fully writable.

I believe you have to have some sort of flash cart/programmable eproms. As I know people can make their own copies of Starfox 2 and such. Probably asking the person in my link may be your best option, that I can think of, if you want to create a custom SNES cart.

If I recall, it's possible to do it but SMW Hacks won't play right because they're usually too big to fit on an SNES cartridge or something like that.

So short answer: Not SMW Hacks.

Sorry to bump a four-year-old thread the OP of which doesn't even visit the forums anymore BUT:

Yes, that sounds possible.

1. Open cartridge
2. Desolder original ROM chip from the board and set it aside or whatever
3. One your computer, patch a ROM file to get your modified ROM
4. Program an EPROM with your modified ROM
5. Solder EPROM onto the PCB within the cartridge.
6. ???
7. Profit (hopefully)

There may be some roadblocks that I'm not aware of, though, so it'd be important to research into the SNES's hardware a bit.

It's easier to just by an SNES Flashcard and put the rom on there though

Yes most definitely, but that wasn't what he asked.
