    Yes, I know where it is and I have it on my flashcard, but I have a small problem with running it. I want to dump my copy of Pokémon Emerald, but I can't switch between each option (Save dump, Save Restore or Rom Dump) because my L and R buttons are completely nonfunctional. Is there an alternative to Rudolph's GBA Backup Tool, or is there a way to modify it so I don't have to use L and R?

    Or is there a simple set of code I can whip up in devkitpro that dumps whatever is in Slot-2?

    I tried that and the CRC checksum for the patch I want to use won't match. So I'm left to dump my own copy. I had a similar event when I wanted to play a GBA Emerald Hack.
    I'll take a look at it and see how that works. Thanks.

    The CRC of the patch or the rom? I can check if I have the right rom and send it to you.

    I find that my dumps of Emerald work with all patches I have gotten so far. Plus, you'd get in a ton of crap if you gave me a rom on here.

    Ok, so I tried Simple GBA Dumper 8/19/09 and it doesn't seem to read the card. It tells me to remove the GBA card, so I do, then it says "No or invalid cartridge!". If I keep the card out and boot the NDS, it just goes to telling me that there is "No or invalid cartridge!"

    Edit: I tried an R4DS and an AceKard 2i, as well as 2 different GBA games, and nothing seems to change.

    @avenir I'll haveto take a look and see what I can find. I do have the latest Moonshell release, so I'll Google that up and try it out.
