I've been always wondering how are NDS roms created.
As in the ROM chips on the carts? Or the games made by the developers? Or as in how the games are dumped from the cart to a PC?
Hard work and effort
If you mean how are roms created from original cartridges, then its dumped using dumping hardware and or using other tools.
It takes a long time to make a good NDS game.
if you mean by the .nds file, than it really easy.
Just put your game cart into some special USB reader and dump the rom.
I Mean How They Made NDS Files Like Did They Steal It From The Company Like The Pokemon Company And Convert All Of Those Parts Of The Game To A NDS File
(this is no longer a oneword post)
No, there are tools like Wood Dumper. Also you could use a 3-in-1 flashcart to back it up and get an NDS file.
The ROM consists of the data inside the cartridge. As has been said, it is dumped from the cartridge using special tools. Here is how they do it: http://gbatemp.net/t274290-how-to-dump-you...-ds-games-saves
Edit: Changed link to more recent guide.
The only good way to do it is with a real dumper.
That only backups save files.
1. That's not creating a rom, it's dumping one.
2. People buy the games, and then they dump the roms from the cartridge onto their computers, and then they upload them onto the internet. And that's how piracy was born.
cartridge is like a CD, an USB memory, a SD card, a HardDisk... only save information/archives/"0&1"...
dumping you take this information and save it into a NDS file that you can use with a flashcart or an emulator
I think it does certain ROMs too. Doesn't matter. Stupid topic is stupid anyway.
a real dumper is WoodDumper over wifi
Please Don't Use All Capitals. It's Annoying.
They just use a DS and dump the ROM to Slot-2 or Wi-Fi, or they use a special USB reader.
you can program for the nds... with the nitro codewarrior package. the dsi and 3ds i am not so sure about. there supposedly is a way to do it on mac program for the ds on mac....
fo us who cannot afford that software you can go the homebrew way...
but I sense you were just curious and that any real answer might be too much for you.
if you are still curious look up the rom hacking wiki in the hacking forum.
Is it work by using dumping hardware and or other tools? OK?
