    I've been running some ongoing tests and the Acekard, Supercard + new OS, and The Cyclo. I've been testing new releases on each card. The results are that every time I load a brand new game on the Acekard and Supercard it ends up in failure but the games load flawlessly on the EVO. Time and time again I'm getting the same result. The Acekard performs the worst of the three. Funny since it's been voted best card of the millennium or sum such silly thing. So thats it. In real world tests the EVO is the best flash card on the market. I suppose thats not true if you have a DSi.

    Note. Not every new game works on Cyclo

    You realize how much flaming you're going to get for that one definite statement?
    Anyway, what games did you try with what version of what firmware?

    I read that thing 4 times, and lost about minute of precious time...

    Best part is... WHAT in the MAN was failing, what game, what save, what in the MAN?
    I should say that this thread is a
    MISERABLE PILE OF SECRETS
    But enough talk, HAVE AT YOU!

    If AKAIO 1.5.1 wasnt cracked (to work on R4 and clones), the compatibility of ALL BRAND NEW GAMES should been fixed... Wait for AKAIO version 1.6 and you will change your statement [​IMG]

    If CYCLO EVO doesnt run "not every new game" - what is the reason of your meaning, that this card is da best?

    One opinion doesn't change the FACT that more users think Ak2i is better, And it will stay that way, This topic was pointless, you're just a mad cyclo user.

    As Rockstar always says, No you just suck.

    Anyways can you please put that CycloDS and put it in a DSi and then tell me the compatibility list?
    Oh wait...

    You aren't running accurate tests. AKAIO 1.5.1 is NOT the latest build of AKAIO. The latest is AKAIO 1.6b5 according to the Acekard channel via IRC. Only a handful of people are special enough to have this beta version of AKAIO, aka The AKAIO Beta Team. Come back when AKAIO 1.6 is released publicly THEN make your stupid judgment again. You'll find that AKAIO 1.6 comes out on top each and every time. [​IMG]

    I personally haven't tried AKAIO 1.6 nor do I have a copy of it but I can assure you, it is superior. period. no doubt what so ever. Sadly I have to agree with you, Supercard's new EVO does have new bells and whistles that makes it a bit more attracting. Although game compatibility for EVO vs AKAIO is AKAIO hands down because of its near daily loader updates. Development has stopped for AKAIO 1.5.1 because the team is busy making changes to the core firmware and moving to the new DevKitARM r28.

    Out of curiosity I thought I'll just look at the past week on both AKAIO and Supercard forums to see how many people have had problems with their respective card

    Results:
    AKAIO: 7 people reported Bugs - 2 of which have already been fixed by Normatt in his latest build of AKAIO
    Supercard: 26 people had problems with running games or had OS problems - of the ones I've read there's been no definite 'fix' for the problems, only suggestions to 'try out to see if it works'

    Now tell me this.....

    Which card is the most reliable & best supported based on these results ???

    & don't forget - this is even with no recent loader updates from Normatt for ~1month now

    Amen to that. [​IMG] Even when AKAIO isn't updated it still thrives over everyone else. That's what I call pwnage.
