System Specific Dumping Guides

  • IBM PC Compatible

[general note: record download date and HTTP metadata (request method, request header and response header) when downloading stuff]

Useful Software

  • GameHeader - GUI tool for viewing ROM header and generating checksums of NES, FDS, GB, SNES, N64, GBC, GBA and NDS ROMs
  • Crappy Tiny Reader (CTR) - GUI tool for viewing ROM header of DS(i) and 3DS ROMs

Useful Info

Would Be Useful

  • More ROM dumper homebrew
    • GB/GBC dumper for GameCube via Game Boy Player or Game Boy Link Cable. There are GBA methods, but do they work for GB/GBC?
    • TapeDump-like homebrew for SNES/GBA (for the SNES, maybe GB/C dumping could also be done, via the Super Game Boy).
  • Look into clone consoles that have external storage + cart slot, if they exist
  • Making a "tasbot"-like device seems to be cheaper way to boot dumping homebrew than making (and possibly buying) flashcarts and similar devices or copiers. But they don't seem to be available for purchase. And it requires a console and exploitable game.
