Hey,

Is there any way I could dump the ROMs of my gba carts using a slot-1 R4 or M3 Real? Or a Slot-2 supercard SD or M3 SD?

Thanks,
SuperGeek

You can also use the 3 in 1 to dump NDS games. Very versatile product I must say!
slow shipping --> http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2967
faster --> http://www.gameyeeeah.com/ezflash-in-expan...lack-p-217.html (use code GBATEMP to get discount at checkout)
fast! but expensive --> http://www.realhotstuff.com/expansion-pack-p-194.html (code: RHS07 for 5% discount)

Alright. Well, I already have a tool for dumping NDS games, thank you anyways.

Ooh, that homebrew the second guy recommended can dump GBA saves as well...woo, I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

I may consider the Ez 3in1. Thanks.

forget about the 3in1 business, launch GBALDR while holding the R button and a GBA dumping menu should pop up.

apparantly it works well, however it wil always dump to 32 megabytes (it doesn't detect the proper size) so they shuold be trimmed afterwards. also make sure you have enough room on your R4, so there is no corruption.

Alright, this is good.

One final question: The dumper also dumped the GBA game's .sav, if I edit it with a trainer, is there a way I can restore it to the GBA carT?

To properly deal with GBA saves (extract and restore) you need a dldi compatible slot-2 device and the homebrew cart_save by Chishm. GBAldr is probably able to dump saves along with the ROM itself but I'm not sure about its restoring capabilities.

Although I would suggest GBAldr WRG's take on the old DS rom dumper was supposed to have swap every two megs GBA dumping abilities. Not sure if they added SCSD or it was CF only though.

    my mother was the one who verbally abused me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:

  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because they couldn't apply their usual tactics anymore it all went worse from there
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and I was a threat to their hierarchy and the way the gang worked

    I did in the end cause the gang leader who was installed there by the larger gang, to loose his influence over the classmates but it had a terrible cost
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    in that it caused my other best friend, who joined that school, to betray me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    to both the powers that be and the larger gang at play
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    by recording conversations of me...they also convinced him over time that I never cared about him and he started to beat over my head things from the past, courtesy of psycholigsts work
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I was stupid to trust them and think they wouldn't start a coverup in agreement of the school who didn't want further scandals on their name

    when I told the psychologist the name of my best friend in the group I didn't realize that would seal my fate
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:

    Lone wolf until when?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    maybe I'll become one again completely if this crap goes on that I'm getting flooded with lately
