I recently bought an AK 2i and a 4GB microSDHC Class 6 for my DSi
First and foremost I've always had an issue with the Akaio loader, it has never been able to load any game
It freezes at the green loading screen, regardless if I hold X or A when choosing a game. When I use the official loader all games load perfectly fine,
which is where my second issue comes up: The games say they save, but when I go back to play again there is no save state
So I have to start again.. (This was pretty annoying after playing most of Rhythm Heaven with my roommates in one sitting)
This leads to another problem The GlobalSettings.ini should be created after the first run, but it has never been created for some odd reason, which I'm assuming is why I can't use cheat also.

This all leads to the following questions
A: How is it that Akaio's loader never loads any game, but the official one does?
B: It seems that the AK 2i can read my memory card, but can't write to it. Anyone else experienced this?

I've bought the card from Real Hot Stuff
and the Memory Card from NewEgg.com
The Memory Card died on me from all the rebooting after freezing, and now I'm using a Sandisk 1GB microSD
The problem persists.

any help is greatly appreciated

Here's what you do~ and make sure you don't use any old files!!

1. Format your 1GB micro SD with a Panasonic format tool.
2. Download AKAIO 1.5: http://www.acekard.com/download/akaio/AKAIO.1.5.rar
3. Download the latest loader: http://akaio.gbatemp.net/nloaders/index.html
4. Put loader file into __aio/loaders
5. Make a folder games and put in a known game or two (mario, tetris).
6. Put cart into your DS and have it load, then go to system options and disable cheats, soft reset and download play.
7. Run the game which should now work.

I've done that so many times, but only the official. AceKard loader is able to load games
I've also tried different sd cards, my main issue is not being able to save settings or games.
Ice contacted who I bought the card from and I'm gonna send it back for a replacement

That's weird. Maybe you have a fake Acekard? Because AKAIO doesn't work on fakes, but official firmware does. Which seems to be roughly your problem. Or it could just be a faulty one.

    Its ok for non 4k, and for only $300, still considered next gen, but yea I'd suggest save a little longer and get the X model
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I played beta of Madden 25
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I like madden, don't like they put out basically same game every year with new roster at full price
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I was decent enough up until Madden 23. Like Madden 22 I had a pretty good w/l record using the Bucs. Madden 23, 24, and 25 beta I just get stomped all the time. Horrible record on all three.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    although the 25 beta were friendly matches only, my record would have been very bad just the same.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @BigOnYa I think the series S would have been better with disk drive.

    It did not need 2k graphics, They could have sent it out with 1080P or even even 720p
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I play Madden 24 often on gamepass, its ok. Me and few buddies play together on same team sometimes, is fun
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Id rather play the ncaa game but dont have the $ for it. Imo both should be included with PS+ and Game Pass.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    I think they should have doen user upgradable hard drive

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    i spent my $ on black myth wukong preorder.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It will be on gamepass/EA Play eventually they said, planning on 2025
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    yeah, when 26 is about to release or very shortly after

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    22 was on gamepass and had tons of players. but they removed it Feb 29th and pretty hard to find a match now.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Get 24 then, it on gamepass now, plenty of peeps play that
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    i had 24 since before it went on game pass.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.
    +1
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
