I don't want to stir up trouble but I suggest that if someone wants to sumbit one of these mapper hacks it should be a requirment that the hack take advantage of the additional features in some noticable way. Otherwise it's just going to be taking up space for no reason. If this sort of hack is acceptable then it's sounds like it should be okay for someone to submit a hack that simply expands a ROM to twice it's size and does nothing to utilize the extra space. It may not be as complex as a mapper change, but the effect would be the same: NOTHING.

The mapper replacement hacks are there to be a foundation for later hacks.

I agree, I won't personally use them as they don't change anything game play related but for anyone that actually hacks roms I think they would be a very useful starting point. I think it's better to keep them here than make people have to search the internet for them or have to convert the roms themselves... that's just my thought though.

I was going to say more since I hate the idea of (inconsequential) mappers hacks as much as anybody else, but if we're going to continue debating or complaining about this there is already an existing thread for it created last June.

Everybody always dogs the mapper hacks...

Look what can be made from them though, you get results that go beyond conventional ROM hacks.

Those were proper mapper hacks though (that actually do something). The type that are being submitted in droves don't really accomplish anything and if someone has the skills and knowledge to make use of a mapper hack they could just as easily make it themselves.

I still say that it's like submitting a hack of Super Mario World that does nothing more than expand the ROM to 2MB. Sure, someone can make use of that extra space, but the hack doesn't, so why would anyone care about it?
