    Wait, that's it? That's kinda pathetic. They could've at least tried to update the compatibility to (almost) match AKAIO's...

    they maybe know they don't have to bother with it since normatt is doing the hard work for them [​IMG]

    maybe only released this so normatt can take it's new function and add it to AKAIO's

    Okay, then I want them to embed an mp3 player so Norm can add it into AKAIO [​IMG] But there's a really small chance of that happening...

    akaio had the ability to boot without dma patching for a long time. it was recently removed due to optimizations which made it a useless feature. i'm not 100% sure yet what team acekard is doing but this looks like a quick fix for a dma bug in the official firmware. instead of recoding the problem that occurs when certain roms are AP patched, just provide a way to turn off dma.

    its really strange as to why they have released this... maybe it was something they were working on without worries and they have completed it at this moment
    maybe normatt or similar could explain if there was some bkg for this ofw

    Unless it's useless, it's good news to know that there is the update from official.

    It's totally useless, except for the embed mp3 player

    no reason for the release
    there is no compatibility update and the no dma mode..hardly anyone is going to use it

    or maybe they are just showing people that they are still alive

    they could've added that embed mp3 player yaymii was talking about
    or some helpful features
    real-time save
    real-time guide
    real-time cheat
    that could put acekard2 to the top
    these features will help get ak2 back to the top
    not saying they should make a new flashcart with a built-in cpu and add freecheat and gba emu
    gba emu can be gotten with 3in1's and freecheat doesn't give very good cheat results

    real-time save/guide/cheat is really required for the ak2

    Does anyone even use this instead of AKAIO because it seems very unlikely if they do [​IMG]

    That's a shame, these things don't last forever though.
    My old Acekard 2i died, I bought a replacement when I noticed it was starting to freeze more often, and handed it down to my brother, he says it hardly works anymore.

    If that's all they did, I really can't see why they bothered.

    I guess they wanted to show they're still alive.
