I can't seem to find anything online that doesn't require a flashcart/other hardware, and the search bar for gbatemp doesn't filter out words like "cards" (or anything else that contains the letters "ds") so it's hard to find what I'm looking for. Is there a homebrew app (similar to braindump) that would dump a DS cartridge?

Use latest version of decrypt9. I doubt there is homebrew but there is TOOLS. if you have CFW or a9lh

There's an app that released within the last month but its name escapes me. Apparently Decrypt9 added the functionality recently too, but I've not tested it myself.

This seems to dump DS/DSi carts too https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-gamecard-dumper.438154/ Requires A9LH.
It's based on decrypt9 code, so it seems to be a stripped down decrypt9.

This one is a CIA, the only flaw is that you must exit the homebrew everytime you swap the game you want to dump.

And while we're talking about homebrews to dump DS cartridges, I'll throw this too https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-twlsavetool-v1-0.412887/
It dumps and inject DS saves.

I'm guessing this needs cfw? I haven't installed cfw on my n3ds yet but the ds in the video doesn't seem to be running on normal firmware
Well, AFAIK all those solutions to dump DS cartridges and saves either require A9LH or in case of Wooddumper and TWLSaveTool they require that you're on CFW. I personally don't know a DS dumper that works in 3dsx form.

yes you need a way to install a cia... so cfw is needed...

i first thought about the save tool but since it didn't dump i dind't shared the link...
thanks for doing it btw..

IIRC
wooddumper had the hability of dump DSI stuff intact...
other tools like ds backup tool for couldn't read the extra dsi stuff and either filled it with dummy or blank data...
however i don't know how the tools for the 3ds deal with the dsi data

    I was decent enough up until Madden 23. Like Madden 22 I had a pretty good w/l record using the Bucs. Madden 23, 24, and 25 beta I just get stomped all the time. Horrible record on all three.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    although the 25 beta were friendly matches only, my record would have been very bad just the same.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @BigOnYa I think the series S would have been better with disk drive.

    It did not need 2k graphics, They could have sent it out with 1080P or even even 720p
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I play Madden 24 often on gamepass, its ok. Me and few buddies play together on same team sometimes, is fun
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Id rather play the ncaa game but dont have the $ for it. Imo both should be included with PS+ and Game Pass.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    I think they should have doen user upgradable hard drive

    i spent my $ on black myth wukong preorder.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It will be on gamepass/EA Play eventually they said, planning on 2025
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    yeah, when 26 is about to release or very shortly after

    22 was on gamepass and had tons of players. but they removed it Feb 29th and pretty hard to find a match now.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Get 24 then, it on gamepass now, plenty of peeps play that
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    i had 24 since before it went on game pass.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.
    +1
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
