Where can you buy hacked Pokemon Cartridges?

Hi,

where can you buy them? I mean not the famous hacks like Pokemon Chaos Black or Pokemon Brown, I'm looking for  Home Made cartridges.

Is there a website where you can buy them? I already tried ebay, but I found nothing. Also the flea market, it's really rare to find a hack there.

thx

*ps: sorry for my english*

Re: Where can you buy hacked Pokemon Cartridges?

There's a way to put a rom in a cartridge, but make sure your checksum is good, use BGB to make sure is it.

Other cartridges... I know exist only 1 or 2 cartridges of Pokemon brown, because it didn't worked well (bcuz of the checksum), I know of a 1 Pokemon Pink cartridge made by Jeremy (his pokemon pink, not the one posted here on Skeetendo!) and one of Pokemon Bronze made by Freako (the creator of pokemon bronze).

The other cartridges you said were piratated and sold for money on ebay against all rules, so they removed 'em from the web.

But I know some places where you could eventually buy fake pokemon games: Turkey, Hong Kong and a city in Germany that I don't know but someone find there a German translation of Pokemon Diamond Bootleg.

I don't guarantee anyway, watch out for rip-off...

I wonder WHAT the checksum destroys if you hack a ROM.

I know only BGB says if the checksum fails a hacked rom won't work for GB\GBC\GBA.
Expecially Expanded roms (like Brown or Grape), which size is bigger than the original.
I fixed it with BGB (unlike Brown).

But BGB says that even if I change something on a ROM.

Re: Where can you buy hacked Pokemon Cartridges?

So, you can SELL the game on a cartridge? That sounds nice. I think that the statute which prohibits it to sell unlicensed Game Boy games is meanwhile barred.

ADD:
Because: Who can really make money from a 24 years old system. I think that Nintendo doesn't mind anymore, too.

You can sell your own game, if you make it from scratch. LSDJ is still popular, and they occasionally make cartridges of it to sell (though most people use flash carts).

Selling a hacked ROM, on the other hand, is just asking for a lawsuit from the original copyright holder.

Oh, Nintendo definitely minds. And “Who can really make money from a 24 years old system”? Have you not heard of Virtual Console?
