Cons- None really, Besides longer download times if you were to make a patch. Lol. It's completely safe.

That doesn't actually qualify as something that would probably be a bad thing but then again, patch files are. IPS patches are made so that they can only be made to write data to an address that can be defined with 3-bytes so basically, from $000000 to $FFFFFF. I may not remember right but I think the offsets after the first 16MB are bigger $1000000.
Thank you both. It's probably just because of my poor sense of scale...I feel like I'm going through free space very quickly. It's fairly difficult to comprehend sixteen million pieces of data. I'll just forge ahead, and if I run out of space, I'll expand it, since there's no harm done.

Be cautious with Sappy...apparently, it's finnicky and buggy, and won't even work on anything beyond Windows XP.

I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.
