    I know people always ask for this so I will as well. Why do we need the dumps of flashcarts? Since it is as DSi compatable one, it will be even more useless that the normal ones.

    For collecting, or for discovering things like this. If it hadn't been dumped, we'd never have known that it's based on a commercial DS rom.

    How do we know that it is based on a commercial rom.

    For starters, it's 256 Mbits, which is extremely large for a flashcart rom. It has the same serial as Fish Tycoon, and according to the info the contents of the rom are almost completely the same.

    If I could find the DSTTi rom I'd compare them...

    Nice. This reminds me of the first "No-Pass-Z" or something like that. They were PassMes with game ROMs soldered on them to avoid the need of using an external game cartridge for the PassMe [​IMG]

    Interesting they managed to make their banner/logo crc match that of the original game.

    this is good news. It pretty much means that ninty can't block this flashcard from the DSi without blocking at least one commercial game.

    I was going to say, this is the sole reason for choosing to do this. It doesn't mean it cant be blocked though depending on how they check it.

    Look at the crc, it's different...

    So a simple update adding crc check for all the games in whitelist will be enough to block it...

    it also means that this flashcard contains a lot of stolen IP, and is therefore very illegal. which is, yknow, bad.

    Oh yeah, as if the act of videogame piracy is in any way legal.

    Piracy usually isn't legal but flash cards/carts can and should be legal. They are legal in many countries (or haven't been tested in court) but they have no chance if they contain a copyright game that can't be deleted. None of the stores selling the DSTTi have the rights to sell it with Fish Tycoon data stored on it.
