DarkFader dumps Mario 64 DS...

I wasn't going to post this because I didn't view it as particularly expanding the scope of the DS hacking accomplishments but after the second reader (Thanks Charavel & Kevin) sent me the link assuming that to be an oversite I had to reverse my judgement. The system works.

You may remember that DarkFader is the mod god who provided us with a dump of Metroid a few weeks back. He has posted only the file listings off the Super Mario 64 card, which can help us to understand a few things about how the DS works, but according to Darkain we still can't view any of the files in this dump because of the unique "LZ77" Nintendo compression scheme.

One obvious next step is to figure out this compression scheme and integrate it into a model viewer. Thankfully this LZ77 compression is used in PokePic - a utility to unpack the pictures in Pokeman games.
