    Converting Boot carts, good or bad?

    So this is a question that has kind of lingered on my mind for a bit and I figured I would ask it here. What are your guys's opinion on converting boots into unreleased games or to repair broken games? Me personally, I have been trying to get my hands on cheap MVS boots to use for fixing dead MSX or KOF98 carts (death via Altera MAX), or even use them to make games like Ironclad or Crossed Swords 2. I am interested in hearing your opinion on this.

    It's a boot, who cares? As long as when you sell the legit cart, you mention that it was repaired using boot parts, that's what matters.

    If it's already a boot, for the most part I consider it for parts anyway at that point.

    Like everyone said, if it's a boot then do what you wish with it. If you intend on selling it, you need to be very specific on details and what it is. It's best to use them as you stated you would, as parts or for unreleased games.

    Who cares what other people think. Your property is your property. Take the rarest mint original cart and use it as a door stop if it'll make you happy.

    No problem with converting them, they are destroyed already anyway, as long as you do not try to pass them as originals to some unsuspecting guy

    Or turn them into Crossed Swords 2 kits and try and sell them for 2500 bucks on facebook cause if you tried to do it here you'd get torched.
