Pokemon Ranch thoughts

Before I do this I wanted some professional advice. In My Pokemon Ranch it takes 999 Pokemon to get a Mew. 999 Pkmn is nucking futs. SO I was thinking about using Save Extractor to rip the save- Take my Pokemon back, Delete the save, and install the ripped save. In theory- all my pokemon I HAD stored, should still be there, and can re-upload the ones on my DS. Double my farm. Will this work? --Sin 02:37, 9 August 2008 (CEST)

Has anyone tried this? Does it work? I'm a bit nervous because of the warning. Would be nice to know WHY he was banned.

It works. He was banned because he released software designed to be used for VC piracy, and we here hate piracy. Muzer 18:16, 18 June 2008 (CEST)
LMAO, designed for VC. The TP exploit is used for piracy too, and the HBC is used to launch the WAD Manager. It all depends on the use that the end-user gives to these tools, not the author, isn't it? --PaRaDoX 19:20, 18 June 2008 (CEST)
No, he made the tool to dump VC games. Not only opening the door to piracy, but also exposing a bug that the Wii devs were going to use for a downgrader. . Also, you are hardly law abiding yourself, using Rayman code in your banners is illegal, K?
We are not discussing if what I do is legal or not(ONLY the first banner was based on Rayman, others aren't). I use his tool to extract system files, not VC games. As I've said before, it all depends on what the end-user does with the tools, and it is not the authors fault. No one blames Twiizers for making the Zelda exploit, which brought us all this VC/WiiWare piracy. --PaRaDoX 02:36, 19 June 2008 (CEST)
Me too? Actually I extracted the credentials from the NAND FS dumper and used them with wiifuse. I would have no way to fully access my Wii otherwise. Now, I don't know why Wanikoko made NAND FS, but I'll bet most of the people who object to it are the people who already had it beforehand. --Comex 23:18, 18 June 2008 (CEST)
The main reason they didn't like him has nothing to do with piracy. Is because the NAND dumper exploited essentially a "root access" bug, as mentioned above, that the Twiizer guys were wanting to keep quiet about until they needed it. That pissed some people off. The word "Banned" is a little strong. We just don't support piracy here and waninkoko is no longer getting help directly from marcan et. al. --ProdigySim 23:52, 18 June 2008 (CEST)
Unless he does what he did with svpe, ie ask for help under a disguise (that's how wad manager has USB MSD) Muzer 23:59, 18 June 2008 (CEST)


I'm removing the scary text from the article unless someone can name a specific reason that this program is more dangerous than most other programs. Ad-hominem attacks have no place here. Bushing 03:58, 19 June 2008 (CEST)
