    Not sure if you call it interleaving, but I want to combine the odd and even eprom dumps so I can have one single binary file. I looked all over and I can't find anything about interleaving the roms, <a href="http://arcadedev.emuvibes.com/files/irapc200.zip" target="_blank">except for this tool</a> (inter.exe doesn't work with my PC because it's 64bit).

    Does anyone know of an easy way to do this?

    If all you need is a tool that takes a byte from one file, a byte from another file, and interleaves them, I can write one for you in like 5 minutes, guaranteed to work on any 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows given that you have msvbvm50.dll

    Since I made it quickly, it's not perfect, so don't do weird things with it.
    If you use it wisely it should work just fine.

    Thank you! Works just the way I want it, and as a GUI too.

    Just a few minor inconveniences, but it doesn't seem to let me interleave another set of files after interleaving previously - so I have to close the program each time to interleave. Also, the process doesn't appear below on the task bar, and can't be brought up with alt+tab. But at least it works. :P

    Thanks again, appreciate it!

    Right, I was about to say, I fixed the two bugs you mentioned in your post. I hoped I could ninja edit my post above, but I didn't make it in time :P

    Redownload it from the same location :)

    This could be pretty useful, thanks Nineko.
