    Hey Peeps, Im not anxious but where are all the dumps go? Recently everything has been just too dry. Glory Days 2 and MMSF are overdue for official releases compared to previous games. Did the modchip crackdown leave release groups scared? Did they run out of money? I just want at least an idea of whats happening. Thanks.

    Its been like this for a while, since two of the big groups left the scene dumps have been slow. Japanese especially.
    I am suprised that the few US titles are getting dumped a bit sooner though.

    There are plenty of American dumpers...well not plenty but enough so we get Megaman, Picross, ect near release date. The only Reason Glory Days is not dumped is cause anybody with a pocket of cash to waste and the hardware to dump...can't find the game. And yes we need more Japanese dumpers as anyone can see by the undump list. Of course kellyan95 if your that hardcore on dumping Jap titles you can always import the games!

    With the newest tools, everybody can dump. Even I can, without a flashed DS, with an (quite common) R4 (well, M3 Simply in my case).

    Hmmm this is funny. This has turned into an effort of an willing and active community then reling on Release Groups. I would definently start a release group but I dont have steady income and I'd probally be beaten to dump and then wasted my money.

    Which groups left the scene? I haven't been keeping up with releases lately, but I'm back into it now.

    They just quit, and left small notes in the NFO for their last release.

    Look up Kakuromaniac's NFO, that's the last one from Legacy. WRG's last one was WAY before that.

    Anyone who's willing to do so could buy a game, dump it, then return it within the 7 days you have in which you can get a full refund. I would do it, but I don't have any money at the moment, and I'm also in the UK and we get releases like 6 months later than the USA... [​IMG]

    Good idea, but I bet after a while the people at the game store would suspect something is up...
