All your retro gaming needs on one SD card!
All you need to do is own one physical game cartridge of the system you want to play off the SD card; just one cartridge will let you play all the games from that console.
Suppose you own the physical copy of Bubble Bobble for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), all you need to do is plug Bubble Bobble in and all the games on my SD card for the NES will work. The same rules apply for every other console. One physical copy of a Game Boy Color game will allow you to play all of the Game Boy Color games off of the SD card.
The way this works is the Retron 5 'patches' the game from the SD card onto the physical game. There is no weird effects from this patching method, the games on the SD card will run smooth and normal. For the Sega Master System, Sega Game Gear, and SG-1000, you will need the Retron 5's 3-in-1 adapter, as well as their respective cartridge games.
Interested in a 32gb SD card with more games, I have a 32gb card with even more games!
**This is for a 16GB SD card ONLY! There is no system here, just the microSD card.

As you can see, I organized all the games quite well. Instead of having all the Game Boy games in one folder, I have them divided into many different folders for better organization.You can put the cheats on, but they do not work the way they should. The way the roms work is the Retron 5 'patches' the game from the SD card over the physical cartridge and when you use cheats, the Retron 5 will base the cheats off the physical cartridge game, not the loaded 'patch' game. So in order to use cheats, you will have to edit the cheat file and replace the physical game cheats with the 'patched' game cheats. You would have to do this for every 'patch' game you want to play with cheats.
* Please note that you might need to update your Retron 5's firmware if you have an early model of a Retron 5. 99.9% of the problems with this SD card come from your Retron 5 needing its firmware updated.
