    Sorry pal but that's outofstock too. As far as I'm aware they discontinued the product in favor of Acekard2.1 and Acekard2i. Much too expensive for most people's tastes and MicroSD cards are fairly cheap.

    Not that I have seen, which is a real shame. And those of us owning RPGs tend to be pretty attached so there is little resale going on. But your best bet is to try to find one used--post something in the trade section when you're eligible and see what happens.

    I own one and would consider reselling it *if* this thread were in a different part of the forum -- but it's not -- so I wouldn't dare mention it... [​IMG]

    Why bother with Acekard RPG? It's no longer in production, and outdated. The extra high speed NAND memory is not useful anymore, since AKAIO software runs every game at full speed anyway.

    yes, but maybe i like to have it because i think 1gb intern space an an micro sd slot is a great combo. when im home i can use the microsd for storing bigger games (videos mp3s etc), when im on trip i can put the games i like to play on the intern space.
    so im able to went on holiday without an microsd i my bag, so i cant lost them.

    it's hardly outdated, but it is discontinued. acekard dropped it at the end of last winter and stopped production on the card. wood r.p.g. and akaio are the only firmwares that still support updates for it. akaio's r.p.g. support is 95% yellow wood goblin's fixes. the r.p.g. has a superior build quality to the ak2/2.1/2i, it has the onboard nand, and the mini usb port is great for homebrew development. however, the nand is delicate but i know more than a few people that actually fixed problems by formatting it using the panasonic formatter!

    i was considering selling mine at one point but then yellow wood goblin put out a fork of gelu's code. my r.p.g. has life again!

    and a g6 is more expensive (isnt it?) and hasnĀ“t got an microsd slot, so im searching for an acekard rpg, i know that akaio works on it and i know that 50$ for 1gb nand space arent cheap

    Doesn't AK2 still have some problem games? Last I checked The World Ends With You still froze during video, something that doesn't occur on the RPG. I know Grand Theft Auto also worked the night it was published, while other carts including the AK2 had to wait on a patch.

    There are problem games at the moment with the RPG/akaio too though. Surely the newer AK2/i's are better supported by akaio developers now than the RPG? (More attention, DMA modes, Choice of Loaders, etc). I definately have more problems currently with akaio and the RPG than with the AK2i.
    From what I've read on this forum it doesn't sound like the RPG is very popular with AKAIO developers..that kinda kills it imo.

    im searching (or i searched) for an shop which is selling an akrpg. not for an guy who tells me to not buy one.

    there are a few more advantages of an flashcard with an intern nand space, like game compabillity etc.

    i never used an akrpg, but ithe support of the g6 seems to be better. i think i gonna buy an g6...
