    Consensus seems to be that a dump is not yet publicly available; regardless, distribution of such a thing would be illegal. Anyone with a legitimately downloaded copy on their DS can still play it.

    It could be dumped somewhere on some pirateing website.

    I'm pretty sure there is no known way on how to copy DSiWare from one system to another, and especially not legally.
    So the only way to get your hands on thisnwould be to find a system that has bought this, although doing that might as well be impossible.

    There is a way to transfer DSiWare but using it for piracy would be inadvisable.

    I have it on my New 3DS XL (I bought it legally.) Not sure about DSi, but I know (as I tried it just now) that if you have a 3DS, you can get it for free with something called "FreeShop"... that is all I can tell you.

    I'm going to get a lot of shit for this but, in my opinion if a game isn't available for legal purchase dumping roms isn't all that bad. BUT (read this before you scream at me) it's available on so many other devices I literally can't see why people would dump it besides maybe a technical analysis compared to other versions of the game or because they don't have any other device to play it on which-- no offense if that's your situation --is kinda weird. So yeah, let's just leave CS DSi lost for a while. I wouldn't call it abandonware just yet.

    Keep your DSis with it around. Maybe back up a copy for the future, but no uploads. I hate the idea of a CS port becoming lost, but the game is too good to not financially support in my opinion. Hell, I'm broke and I've bought a shit ton of ports of this game because I make poor financial decisions.

    [QUOTE="mckgamer, post: 361833, member: 7963" Hell, I'm broke and I've bought a shit ton of ports of this game because I make poor financial decisions.[/QUOTE] Just did some math, and all ports of CS together cost $110. I don't think that much money over long periods of time can infect your financial status.

    Yes actually, I thought it was lost as well but a kind gentlemen gave me the file, but if you really want the dsi version your gonna have to hack it and get it to run cfw, perhaps you have something like a Discord I could give it to you or is it allowed here?

    Distributing roms is illegal so you'd be hard pressed to find a forum willing to host those links.
