    Chishm hints at keeping DS ROM Dumping Method Secret

    "writing a ROM dumper was step 1 in writing Nitro Hax"








    [​IMG]



    Famous DS scene coder chishm hints that he created a new, effective DS ROM dumper, however it will never be released. It was revealed when asked why the source code for his Action Replay clone 'Nitro Hax' would not be released.




    Chishm is an avid homebrew supporter with his works on libfat and DLDI for the DS and GBA but stands against piracy. So for now keep those GBAMP's handy!

    The Jet Impulse thing? It's dumped. Talk about the "incompetency" of groups.

    Get lost, chishm, with your freaking anti-piracy policy.

    I hope this doesn't make people think less of chishm. The amount of work he puts into homebrew is incredible, along with Darkfader and others.

    I'm glad he has chosen to stick to his principles and is not releasing the code to his dumper.

    No, no. Not wise. Think about everything chishm has done for the DS scene [​IMG] It's amazing what he's accomplished.

    i agree he should not try to wind everyone up. However no one should be telling him to get lost because hes done a lot for us all.

    His attitude is ridiculous. The homebrew scene and the roms scene is the same thing, it's all tied together. You can't support one without supporting the other.

    I respect his decision. It's not like we *need* his dumper anyways. Plenty of other groups out there successfully dumping games. [​IMG]

    No it's not. Rom's are from games made by companies who need to get money from them, if everybody only downloads roms and never buys games, those companies will loose money and stop making games.
    Homebrew are programs/games made by people for free, they are made to be downloaded and not even buyable, for homebrew goes the opposite: if nobody download them the creator will stop making stuff.
    Quite a difference if you ask me. [​IMG]

    Seems to me the only reason for reporting this 'news' is to try and stir up some bad feeling between the hombrew and rom camp.

    kudos to him for this fine tool, and i think some people will now spend night and day reverse-engineering his code... poor Chishm ;-)

    most people would not even buy a handheld system or a console if they knew there would be no hack to play free games. People like me cant fork out hundreds of pounds. You spent a fortune on games and when you get home you go to play them and half of them are sh**. Lower the price of games thats what i say.

    Why would anyone even need this? Obviously scene groups can dump ROMs just fine.

    If this were true there never would have been a GBA or N64, much less a DS or Wii. The vast majority of people buy their games. If they didn't there would be no market for Nintendo to release games and systems into.

    the people who dont know about modding buy games or the people who can afford it do. however people it do know about modding and dont have much money rely on mods. (i did not mean most people would not buy a system i ment lots of people) i would not be buying the games i download anyway. I buy games like final fantasy because i know i will like it.

    Here an example i downloaded blade for the xbox the other day but i would have no intensions of buying it so thats zero profit loss for the company.

    Well say what you mean next time. [​IMG]

    I'm not saying you shouldn't download games, but realize what you are doing. When I download a game, I'm stealing it according to the laws of every land I know of. I can live with that. If you can't live with that knowledge, then don't download games. Do not pretend that you're not legally stealing.

    As far as lost profits, or the lack thereof, I agree with you.
