    Without hw to test with, there's a very high chance that code will be buggy. Speaking from experience.

    Phantom Gear, a platformer previously known as Project Genesis, will get a Kickstarter starting July 16. It's developed by Bits Rule Games from Argentina, and published by Mega Cat.

    Arithmetic coding is far too slow, and the faster version of it that current compressors use wasn't invented yet. ;)
    The faster versions may not be viable either due to RAM needs.

    Two half-size eeproms only need some additional lines and a small discrete component. To the software it's the same. It's quite conceivable they got the half-sized ones cheaper than one full-size.

    Please read the thread.

    If a couple years ago I sold a product using mp3, it would absolutely be on me to prove I have a license for that.

    It appears it is not. There's plenty of news posts mentioning camera manufacturers getting a separate exfat license.

    MS was quite successful in lobbying there, even though you can read SDXC cards...

    Such adjustment results in either slower code or duplicated code. If they had readymade separate US and EU ROMs, it's quite believable it wouldn't be worth the cost to create a new adjustable one.

    @broken
    Please comment on the source code situation, where it looks like your product is using both GPL'd code and code that requires a patent license.

    There is a big difference between ASIC and FPGA power consumption, but it's indeed possible for a modern FPGA to use less power than a 30 year old ASIC for the same thing.
