An Arduino Mega Eprom Programmer project from Robson Couto, that is available on github:

Recently I acquired a SNES. But it only came with a bootleg Mortal Kombat cartridge. Searching for games I found a lot of repro cartridges (Cartridges with the ROM swapped) being sold at local second hand selling websites. The problem is that they are sold usually at prices comparing to those of original untouched cartridges. People should not overprice something they are stealing anyway.
So what? I made this post to prove anyone with an Arduino Mega and some spare components can burn a EPROM for cheap.
