    downloading a rom of a game is illegal in most countries, even if you own a copy of that game, however making a backup of your own game and then playing that backup is legal in many countries, that is what this is about
    and for your second question ... no idea, what you are trying to ask

    Why did you bother answering something that I did not ask anyway AFAIK all Roms have a id number and if everyone who downloads same one ie Scene ROM and plays it online nintendo will say wtf is going on and then might ban all users using that rom online , this is what I think but not sure.

    you asked why you need to dump games and I answered that, usually people say thank you, when they get a question answered instead of behaving like a dick
    also, scene roms per se are not online compatible, you have to add a game ID into the header, you can either use your own game's ID or one, that is publicly shared and ninty can probably see, that a couple dozen/hundred/thousand people use the same ID ... but whether or not they will ever ban, we can't know for now

    At this point, I would stop bothering. You did answer his first question, and apparently the answer isn't appreciated. And just as you, I don't understand the second question either, and there's nary an explanation from the OP. If the OP doesn't want to help others help him, then my helpfulness ceases at that point.
