INL Dumper can make N64 game backups
« on: December 09, 2018, 04:19 AM »
I cannot believe how quickly he did it, but INL has just gotten N64 dumping working on his INLretro Programmer/Dumper:

It isn't implemented in the firmware/software yet, but it's a reality. Soon there will be no need for extremely expensive systems for backing up your games so you can load them onto your ED64. It shoudn't be too long before save games can be transferred between real cart and ED64 as well (through a computer). You could soon have your childhood save games backed up for a decent price!

EDIT: Just bringing saturnu's comment up here.  Another great product is here: https://github.com/sanni/cartreader

The Sanni Cartreader has been around for a while.  It is truly a great product.  It's only downside is that you need to have some skills to build it yourself.  Otherwise you need to watch the sites that Sanni frequents so you can purchase one directly from him when he has time to build a few.  He does updates to it from time to time, and it's still the gold standard (if a little hard to find).  It already has 100% support of N64 games and saves along with at least as many other consoles as the INL dumper/programmer.

There is a 3rd product out there that works well, but you have to spend a lot of money to purchase a 64drive as well.

This sounds really cool!

there is already a finished open source project, that can dump various carts, e.g. n64 carts.
