One of the best-known 100-in-1 cartridges of the early era of NES emulation is called Contra Function 16. It contains about 30 working NROM games (and hacks thereof) and claims to have Contra, As of early 2001, most NES emulators could not run Contra and a few of the NROM games, but newer emulators (Nintendulator, FCE Ultra, Nestopia) have no trouble. Even though the 1-megabyte cartridge uses RAM for graphics (the largest legit ROM published in North America was 768 KB), most are not compressed (except Contra) so they're easy to skin with Tile Layer.
