    If a game has been dumped then a rom of it is available online somewhere.

    When a ROM image is copied off a cartridge (or a disc image from a game disc), that's "dumped". If nobody has done this yet, it's "undumped".

    Dumped means it is available for download. Someone took the original cart, copied the data, and put it up on the internet as a ROM. Undumped means the game hasn't been uploaded onto the internet yet, but the game exists in stores

    Dumped means that it was created from the original cartridge, so it means that the rom exists.
    Undumped just means that the rom is still not around. [​IMG]
