Zoop: Please read...
Post Posted: Thu Aug 19, 1999 4:47 am
Hey, Zoop.
Would you be willing to make & sell dumping equipment?
I have a GG cart that hasn't been dumped yet (FIFA Soccer), and I'd like to have it dumped (and released by SMS Power, of course!). But I like it too much to send off to France or America or wherever you are. Also, I know that there is the chance that the cartridge may be irreversably damaged, and I'd rather be pissed off at myself than someone else if that happened.
I understand that you may not want to do that, but I feel that there are many people who have undumped cartridges that do not want to part with them.
Maybe part of your registration for Meka could be the donation of an undumped ROM.
I dunno.

This is the actual way to register, if you have cartridges.
Don't worry about Fifa - it sucks :)

Hey, It does not suck, it's better than the MegaDrive version! :) *nt*

If you are ready to pay 200$ to save a common 5/10$ cartridge, it's faisable.

Ooh, err! Sorry, I guess I just thought it was something like a parallel cable/Card, adaptor & custom-made software. Oof! I guess I was wrong then. I hate it when that happens (all the time ;)
Speaking of adaptors, you wouldn't happen to know how to build a SMS -> GG adaptor would you? I know that these used to be commonplace, but I haven't seen one since just before I bought my GameGear, same as with the TV tuner. Hmm... This sounds like some sort of conspiracy. Hmmm...

You can find some on eBay.

Yeah, but in case you haven't noticed, I am rather uncomfortable about sending/trading/buying stuff overseas.
Besides, I could only find the one, and some bastard kept using that god-awful 'proxy bid' feature & kept raising the price by 50c! That's nearly a whole dollar over here! The price got up to like $8USD before I gave up.
Is there any workaround for this?

I can't really be bothered making up a title for this post.

What goes into making a ROM dumper that makes it so expensive anyway?

IO card, amazingly hard to find.
Time, even more hard to find.
And the rest.
