2-in-1 Pokemon Gold and Silver - ROM Dumping Help?
« on: October 19, 2016, 03:27:01 PM »
Hi everyone! I have a bootleg cartridge that has both Pokemon Gold and Silver on it. I've been trying to dump a ROM for a while with no luck.  :angry2: I can only dump the menu where you select which game, but not the games themselves. I would love to make a ROM available to you, so if y'all have any tips or suggestions I'd really appreciate them!  :)

Pictures of the cart and a link to a video of the game in action are attached for anyone who is interested:

What are you using to dump it? And how big is the menu ROM you're getting? Multicarts can be kinda hard to deal with, but there are ways of doing it.

I'm using  J Rodrigo's cart flasher and the software he provides with it. The size of the menu ROM that I'm getting is 2MB. Also, sorry for the extremely late reply  >_<

ah, that might actually be a complete dump, the JP versions of Gold and Silver (which the bootleg translations are based on) are 1mb each so that's big enough to contain both of them.. drop me an email at cactusgunman@gmail.com and I can take a look at it if you like.

If the ROM is complete the issue will most likely be that emulators can't handle the multicart mapper (and potentially copy protection, the single cart releases of those translations had something like that going on)

Hi, please do not bump really old topics just to say unrelated nonsense like this. (The last post in this topic is 6 years old!) Even your last several posts have been incomprehensible. I've talked to you about spam before in the PMs and your recent posts today would definitely qualify as such. If I see another bizarre post like this one or your recent ones, I may have to resort to banning you.

Locking this topic for now unless either theeuphonist and/or taizou request for it to be unlocked.
