    Alright, so last night/this morning, I downloaded and placed the new release onto my Acekard. After that, I placed all my games and save files back onto the card along with some new games. No problem there.

    The problem came when I tried to play the games. The game loaded up just like normal, until it froze on the green loading screen. I haven't heard much of this problem, so forgive me if this is happening a lot. I bought my Acekard in February, I believe. Acekard 2.1 from realhotstuff (Which is listed as a reseller on the official Acekard website, so I hope it's not a clone or fake). After trying to fix this problem, I decided to just use the official loader which worked fine except for some games that froze (Yugioh 5Ds, for example does not go past the saving screen). I know there are error messages that show up if you do indeed have a clone or fake device, but I have not come across any of them.

    So, I ask you, is there any fix for the 1.6 RC2? Should I just go back to 1.5 until there is a final release of 1.6? I've tried everything I can think of. I can keep using the official loader if I need to, but would prefer something that actually lets me play my games.

    Here's a quick summary for anyone who doesn't wanna read all that.

    Acekard 2.1 on DS Lite
    AKAIO 1.6 RC2
    Freezes on green loading screen

    Thank you in advance and I appreciate any feedback whatsoever.

    I really hope there is. I'm lucky I don't have anything important to play right now (Just finished the one DS game I was actively waiting for) or I would probably be so angry.

    I see, so it's happening to a lot of people. Hopefully this is all fixed in the final 1.6 release. And I hope mine isn't a bad batch, that would stink. :/

    Especially since I haven't even had it for a month. I mean, I got my R4 from RHS and it worked beautifully until it started crapping out on me near the end of January.

    Oh well. I guess I just must be patient, eh?

    Can someone confirm that going back to 1.5.1 fixes the problem? I just got a Acecard and haven't used anything but 1.6 RC1.

    I would assume that it does, since I had no problem with 1.5 at all. The problems started with the 1.6 RC2

    Well, will there eventually be a fix do you think? I sure hope there will be.

    I already said in a similar thread about the bad batch ak2's, that norm has been working on it and these bad batch ak2's will be working in the next release. [​IMG] (also posted a low-quality vid of the rainbow "loading" message which will only be shown on these bad batch ak2's [​IMG] )

    edit: was in this thread

    Oh wow, I completely missed that! Thanks very much, man! I was worried I would have to buy a new card, which would be a pain since I've been spending so much money left and right over the past couple weeks. :/

    I appreciate that. Thanks a bunch, you saved me some worry.
