  • Add pictures, and a video guide, to each page
  • Create Satellaview guide
  • Clean up and finalize the Virtual Boy guide
  • Clean up and finalize the Famicom Disk System (WIP)
  • General Disc Dumping guide: add more information on advantages of certain disc drives (e.g. Plextors)
  • Is it worth dumping each chip individually for some carts? Examples of carts where this would be useful: different parts of ROM exposed depending on PCB configuration, some kind of circuitry for byte-swapping the ROM output (2)? Maybe just looking at the PCB is enough to find special cases like these.
  • Create Atari Cartridge dumping guide.
  • Document this GB dumping homebrew for GBA https://github.com/Lorenzooone/gba-dump-gb
  • Add explanations of why the different pieces of info are useful to record to Gathering and Submitting Dump Info (Detailed) / and generally just why its good to use common/open source methods.
  • Add instructions on how to dump save files
  • GBA: Document gbaxxdumper
  • It may be a good idea to dump as much as possible (or the maximum known capacity) from some carts on some systems, to make sure all the ROM is dumped (even if the capacity is written on the ROM chip), and then analyse the overdump to find the actual size. Maybe this is something that could be done by the dumping hardware itself - maybe make suggestion on Sanni github discussions.
  • Hardware: integrate Lesserkuma's cart_reader_dumping_compatibility_chart.xlsx
  • Document common ROM chip serials. E.g. 6th, 7th and 8th character of the “MX” line on MX (Macronix) ROM chips seems to be the ROM size.
  • Split this into individual tables for each console, and put them on the respective dumping guide pages
  • Create e-Reader guide
  • Some carts may have DLC in the save data. Add a note to the dumping guide pages about this.
  • Game Boy: add info on cart/box serials (and non-standard carts if relevant)
  • Rewritable Hard Disks and Flash Media: add instructions on how to censor personal information without altering the surrounding data structure (e.g. FF/00-out file contents without modifying the filesystem metadata or shifting data)
