I was able to dump some NDS games, like Mario Kart DS, from a Wii U.
However those games are in SRL file format.
Could you make this file format playable in melonDS.
This file format is working in DeSmuME so maybe you can look at them code.

SRL files are the same format as NDS files, they just have a different extension.

melonDS should list .srl files in its ROM open dialog. if not, you can always change the extension.

I tried to change the extension but the game was stuck on blank screen (not loading at all).
However it was working fine in DeSmuME.

I was able to make SRL game work in melonDS :
Step 1 (Optional) - If you want, rename the .srl ROM it to .nds.
Step 2 Uncheck the "Boot game directly" option in "Emu settings" menu.
Step 3 (Optional) - Load the .srl in melonDS trough drag n drop or "Open ROM" menu.
Step 4 - Enjoy !

In DeSmuME, it will work even if the game isn't launched trough firmware :
"Boot from firmware (like the NDS)" option could be checked or unchecked and the game will work.

I think it's because DeSmuME have native compatibility with SRL files but not melonDS.
So melonDS need to launch the game trough the NDS firmware.

that doesn't make much sense, SRL files are the same format as NDS files. there's something weird going on there. I'm gonna contact you via PM to work this out.
