    I thought Normatt said that the RPG wouldn't be able to support the 8MB save of BBDX.. Well I don't care about the game but it's still good to see that the acekard team found a workaround.

    This haslmp-ng (ipod clone) built-in so just navigate anywhere and start up an mp3. This clearly beats moonshell as an mp3 player for one reason. Recursive. Recursive. Recursive. Sadly most haven't a clue what recursive means. Built in textview ain't too shabby either. I'm really impressed with this release. Biggest change I notice is cheat support works much much better.

    Adjust volume by spinning in a circle.
    Tap middle to navigate song mode then spin in a circle.

    Volume up/down - R or L trigger (hold)
    Navigate song - Dpad R or R & L trigger (hold)
    Next song - A
    Previous song - Y
    Pause - B
    Menu - Dpad L or X
    Select - Lock buttons

    Im glad Acekard added bliss' improvements. Anyway what is AKAIO?...I guess ill look it up, download description seems really cool though.
    Thanks for the updates.

    Edit: Aawwww...i just remember my Kingston microSD died... two of them died so far, Im guessing im having some bad luck with them. I was careful with them holding by the sides n stuff but treated my transcend crapply. Kingston dies n transcend still works.

    Brilliant update, the speed fix in particular - the Castlevania intro I could deal with but some games had the odd bit of noticeable slowdown in-game which prevented me from recommending the card to people, and the black screens between scenes of some games (like new track and field) were uncomfortably long.

    Good to see bliss features like shortcuts added as well, especially as he's stopped updating.

    So far from what i saw thanks to you all... credits are due !

    I saw that Smiths & Normmatt are still pretty active here ;-)

    I just tested the avi ( tuna video plugin ) with AKAOI ( just uncomment the lign with ;avi=tuna-vids.ak4 and add ,.avi to Files=.txt,.mp3,.ogg,.lac,.dsm in plugin.ini )

    It works fine with movie avi ( container type video xvid+ audio mp3 mono ) : size= 256 x 192 ( or less ) and fps = 12 ( best ) with sound mono 96 Khz ( max ) mp3.

    You can use SUPER convertor or IVC 1.53 STANDARD transcodeur ( FREE of charge for personal and professional usage ). This last one is adding nintendo dpg direct support ... now under test for tuna video ;-)

    but Norm... it clearly says they merged only bliss' features... therefore he must have done them all.

    I really want you to finish your damn "project" on AKAIO Norm... so that we might release a 1.2 that kicks this thing's ass.
    Presuming of course they share the source on the BBDX 8MB save thing...
