Ok, here's the problem, wanting to rom hack with no bin format roms!
After trying for some time to find any of the usual programms that would include this feathure like sonic hacking wiz pro from gerbilsodt I can't, only one I have found is a dos app and won't run on my xp computer.
Does anyone have a smd to bin converter or sonic hacking wiz pro?

I believe you can use Gens Kmod's Dump ROM option to convert SMD format ROMs to BIN ROMs. Alternatively, you can just download ROMs in binary format from SonAR or some other ROM site.

We might have a copy of SHWP in Category:Programs, though I wouldn't exactly recommend it over more modern hacking utilities. If what you're looking for isn't in there, try Category:Program Files.

uCON64, the definitive ROM management tool.

uCON64 also supports dumping ROMs via the Sega CD ROM dumping cable, plus a variety of other ROM dumpers for other consoles.

I wrote a program that adds shell extentions to convert smd<->bin.

No batch features though (yet!)

I always convert SMD to BIN using Genecyst (yes, I still use it every so often).

Lol oldbies.

I've always used GenRomSuite since 2005. It seems to be popular in the Spanish speaking world.

lol oldbies nothing, I've used that tool more than once =P

Not very recently mind, it's getting harder and harder to still find ROMs in SMD format, they're all in .bin (including the retards who rename them .gen).
