    just got one of these, i've come across two problems so far - "show hidden files" option in globalsettings.ini doesn't do anything (they're always shown whether its set to 1 or 0) and Trauma Center doesn't work at all (white screens) - i'm pretty sure it isn't a bad ROM, it works fine on my R4, and I've tried it with various combinations of patching options to no avail.

    Hmm, what version OSMenu are you running on Acekard 2?

    That sux. It just proves that R4 is the best.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    Did you copy the rom from your R4 to your Acekard 2? Or did you use a clean rom?

    Also, while being very popular, the R4 is far from being the best ... if it was the best, why are so many people upgrading to newer carts, at the moment?

    R4 users were the widest hit with the recent FFCC incident, for example ... whereas AceKard & CycloDS owners were unaffected.

    Yes, but the R4 team keeps updating their firmware, so thats a good thing [​IMG]

    actually that's a point, its the same rom i was using with the R4, and i believe it was trimmed with the version 1 R4 trimmer (the one that sometimes broke download play). i'll try it untrimmed, see what happens.

    edit: nope, still white screens.

    Here's some noob input: Trauma Centre also whitescreens me, so does Death Jr and the Science Fair of Doom. The acekard site says it's latest release dealt with whitescreening on some games, but obviously that didn't include Trauma Centre... Mine is set to "don't trim"

    I already ordered, but I appreciate hearing about the issues of a card on GBATemp. It helps me know what to expect when I get it. It's also a good measure of the manufacturer's updates whether the issues ever get fixed. Much easier to browse the various forums here on GBATemp than to go to each manufacturer's forums, IMHO.

    FFCC: ROF gets "stuck" while saving randomly.. i didn't use "freezing" because the BGM still plays ok, doesn't loop or stop, and the "background" on the save screen was moving normally.. anyone experienced this? im using a 4GB Kingston Micro SD Japan Class 4 formatted to FAT16 file system.. Im using the latest bliss OSMenu version.. [​IMG]

    Hey guys, I've been lurking for a while but decided to join sicne I recently got into this NDS homebrew stuff.

    Anyway, I got an Acekard 2 and yes, it gets stuck. Exact same problem as kikoexe. On Mario 64 DS right after I get the first star of the game(the bomb on the summit one; other stars seem to work), and last night FFXII: Reverent Wings stuck during a battle, but didn't when I reloaded and tried again.

    This doesn't happen terribly often, so i'm still over all satified with the Acekard. Sorta nice to know it's not just mine...

    i installed the latest firmware and it fixed the issue that i had.. but i noticed that the saving progress of all the games takes more than 2 seconds.. especially with Castlevania POR where the saving progress is supposed to be "instant".. FFCC:RoF and Pokemon Diamond takes more than 5 seconds before the save progress is completed.. its not a big deal actually since the issue has been fixed, but when POR froze on me when i pressed start/select i got a bit disappointed.. [​IMG]

    honestly, im thinking of going back to the EDGE.. never gave me issues of some sort.. but the AK2's nice interface stops me from doing so.. heh.. so im still giving it a chance since support for the card is quite good.. [​IMG]

    Over the past couple days I've been playing a bunch of different games and for the most part, everything has been working smoothly. It froze once last night on FFXII: Revenant Wings, but it was no big deal since it was at the start of a fight. *shrug*
