    I love my Acekard 2i with AKAIO 1.4.1. However, twice now has my son accidentially deleted a game by entering the "Start" menu in AKAIO and hitting "Delete". He can't read what its says but just clicks away in there...!

    Is there any way to disable the Start menu in AKAIO? Like making some "StartMenu = 0" setting in one of the ini files?

    Wow, I thought you were trying to block your son from seeing porn in moonshell with the title.

    How about monitoring him whenever he uses it? Isn't that simple enough?

    Nah, he is allowed to play an hour a day, and it is a bit tiresome to sit and watch him play all sorts of kids games all the time [​IMG]

    Well, that would only prevent him from deleting my games, not his own, would it.

    Simple solution, take control. You are the parental unit...teach him NOT to delete stuff or his DS privileges will be revoked.
    also you should make sure to have your files backed up on PC just in case.
    ...No harshness intended by this post, ive got kids too with AK2s of there own=)

    [​IMG] Yeah, well, he's only four years old and sometimes he starts the menu by accident and deletes something.

    For now I do solve it by restoring the deleted ROMs from my PC each time it happens - but it still leaves me with my initial question above: Does anyone know a way to turn off the start menu (by setting a parameter in an ini file or similar)?

    you can change the position of the "clickable" area for the start menu in dan taylor's ak edit. you could move it way off screen, i think you can disable it as well. but the "start" button will also open the start menu. that you can not disable as its part of the firmware.

    A better solution to that is to buy a simpler flashcart like the EDGE. It's very basic and less confusing.

    Well, what kind of a parent are you?
    Teaching him so early that stealing is okay?

    Oh my...

    yes. i love that old argument that i just bought a flash linker so i could dump my games and have more than 1 game with me with i travel. everyone who runs a gba homebrew is pirating because of the nintendo logo required for the homebrew to boot. everyone who uses an emu is pirating. everyone who runs an "i" linker is pirating because of the nds "rom" that is in the bootloader. i don't believe anyone, not for a second, who says they have never downloaded a single rom for their flash kit.

    please stop the righteous act and let this thread die peacefully.
