    Acekard RPG loader 4.04 released
    Download play fixes
    [​IMG]

    The Acekard team have released a new loader for the Acekard RPG that fixes "most" download play issues. It is unsure what games have been fixed and what still do not work. Strangely you must enable 'single card play' from the menu to use download play with problem games as it seems that the fix also creates compatibility issues.

    [title:changelog]

    Thanks to gratefulbuddy on the forums for the heads up. You can download the latest update as ever from the GBAtemp download center below:

    Basically, it's the code that lets you change the Loader/Firmware.

    You can customize/change it to your liking. And I think this part of the AKRPG failed...

    They probably thought at least one person would make an alternative loader. But as you can see....

    Yep, I can see. [​IMG]

    I'm glad I didn't buy the AKRPG when the opportunity presented itself.

    Its dumb that you have to hit a button to enable download play. Why did they take their idea from supercard?

    I'm sure if they completely fix download play they wouldn't need to do this. Some wouldn't like not being able to play a game at all just because of one of its features isn't working.

    I still really want this card even with the lack of certain features. I've been meaning to get a slot-1 card for a while now but I have been waiting for this one. I need something a little prettier because I'm tired of looking at my ugly M3 miniSD in my DS Lite. I think I'm now finally going to buy one once the one place that's selling them has it back in stock.

    I don't think the opensource side of this is of nouse, I know cracker is working on this (didn't he has added the cheat support system), and I'll start working on it as soon as my dev sample gets here. Being opensource doesn't mean "fork" it could mean that acekard team being nice it's much better to have them officialy take your modification. Not because we want to work for them for free but just because only one firmware is more noob-proof.

    replace akmenu.nds with dsorganise and bam! a homebrew loader. lol.

    actually, i saw some chinese guy made a small source change for a small cheat code modification or something on some forum i was reading, but it was too hard to understand via google translate and he didn't compile it, just provided the code.

    haha.

    Cause the cost of enabling DL/P is slower reading time so someone who usesa slow micro SD will preffer to only enable this when s/he needs to.

    about the source code issue on acekard forum :
    Is this what we seem like to the outside world ? grumbling people ?
    On this topic I've received my sample yesterday and there's a lot of place for improvement. To start with it the Makefile have to fixed to compile under unix. From now I'm doing a fork based on 4.0.2 to add features. I'll hope 4.0.4 is not too far from it.
