Title: Possibility of Dumping Gameboy Games Through Nintendo 64 Transfer Pak?
Post by: RetrodeLuver on 28/Jul/2014 02:28:53 PM
I've heard stories of people being able to do this with the 64Drive, so I know that the transfer pack can read the whole cartridge. With the Retrode's ability to read Memory Cards plugged into N64 controllers, would it not be possible to read gameboy cartridges?

EDIT: http://lacklustre.net/n64/agbd/ <-- Site that has the program allowing it for their drive.

I am extremely interested in this.  If there is any way I can help make it happen let me know.

Same. I didn't get to the gameboy add-on in time before it sold out and this would solve all that issue.

I have 3 or 4 of these packs. Never did understand how to use them.
I would be great if they do access the ROM.
Can anyone confirm that the method works without a 64Drive?

Well, I tried it just now following the instructions as though I was downloading a memory pak.  I get a 32kb file of all 0s every time.  So, it's not currently functioning...

Most Game Boy games are 32kb in size.
What game are you testing?
Is it a clean cartridge?

agbd works fine. The 64drive is the only flash cart it will work on.

Tested Super Mario Land and Pokemon Red, both recently extensively cleaned and I tested them both multiple times.

I'm not ruling out a bad connection somewhere, specifically the transfer pak seems to make really lousy contact, but I tried it repeatedly after taking it all apart and so on...

Err, "agbd"?  I don't know what you mean here
