    Seems the fix in AKAIO 1.7.1 for DQ 9, doesn't fully work, still locks on blackscreens at times, using bahamut release.

    Away from civilization.

    Try it out on yours before you delete it.

    Yeah was near the beginning trying to go down to the Protectorate and the nds just locked. After the very first fight with AKAIO 1.7.1 when the screen went black it also locked there. Gonna have to use Xenom release for now. I found one without the cracktro, but sadly it lacks cheat support due to the cracktro, why the hell these release groups have to add that crap is beyond me. I was using the fast message speed, so I don't have to get annoyed by the stupid beep for every letter.

    What are you complaining about? They give you free games, relax, it's just a couple of seconds of the intro.
    Try re-installing a fresh copy.

    lolwut? And if you want cheats, just modify your cheat file to include your version's Game ID. It's really simple, and there should be at least a few threads here explaining it (even more on the cheat forum, I'd have to imagine). And if the intro is really bothering you, there are plenty of ways to remove it (even though the DQIX one was quite awesome, and now that I'm using the clean ROM I'm missing it).

    You could always disable it using a hex editor.

    Anyone know if there if the game freezes around the time you get to the second city and, if so, where? I want to check this out for myself but already a few hours into the game.

    Yeah I am kinda nervous to install put in akaio 1.7.1 because on their board someone posted this..


    Description of problem: White screen after setting my options and trying to save
    Steps to reproduce: Use a fresh copy of Akaio v1.7.1

    so its not just the game that has issues but the entire program..the last thing I want to see is a white screen when I turn my DSI XL on..or am I not reading into his issue right

    It happened to me once. I restarted my XL and the settings were saved and everything worked fine. If you are that worried about your stuff, make a backup.

    I dont do any specific setting..I just keep the default setting and I always back up my stuff just in case..will try it and see if it works..and if it doesnt I could always go back to 1.7 but the Dragon Quest game, someone said that it does not work..I have the xenom version I am still at the beginning of the game so maybe I can try the bahamut version and see if it works or it freezes

    If you had AKAIO 1.7.1, all you need is the new loader.
    The new version of AKAIO 1.7.1 is the same as the old one, but includes the updated loader.

    Works for me as well(clean rom)......but i've played quite some time on Hex edited DQ9. Also,it seems the slowdown is still there.....probably a retail card problem.

    Heya, have a question about the new akaio 1.7.1

    I just downloaded the akaio 1.7.1 posted on Wed Jul 14, 2010 12:17 pm

    Does this have everything up to date, including the newest loaders and the Wi-fi plugin cheat database and the savelist.bin?
    Or will I still need to download the loaders all of those things myself and install them manually?

    Thanks
