    I was wondering if anyone tried dumping a ROM from a game they own and playing online with the dumped ROM.

    Also, would it be possible to extract your save files from the gamecart? (I suppose not if the save files are in different formats)

    You cannot extract your save file from the cartridge with the software Gateway provided (sadly). You will need an R4 Save Dongle to do this.

    Do you lose your save if you dump a game with a save file on it like pokemon x or y?

    For me and a few others, the save was "corrupt", despite having a 4.5 KeyY. I had to use Up+X+B to delete the save, though you don't know until you try.

    weatMod if you mean transferring saves, it doesn't seem like you can do it with any game at the moment, but as far as save games working once saved in GW mode I've had no problems with the 26 on my MicroSD.

    Will this dump DS games as well or just 3DS games? Just curious.

    Just 3DS games, I believe. To dump DS games without any special PC hardware, you'd need a DS and a slot-2 flashcart to dump straight to SD or a slot-1 cart (like the blue GW card) to dump it over wifi.

    Yeah, I know how to do it over wifi, just thought if gateway would do it that would be a nice bonus. As is, it's easier to just download DS games than bother with those ripping methods, even if that makes them "illegal".
