    I have an acekard 2.1 and a 3in1+.

    The thing is i have acidentally deleted my emerald save twice now.

    1. So, if i load emerald to the nor, play it save it. Then blank the nor. Does it put my updated save onto the acekard?
    2. if i have a game in the nor, then play a game in psram. will this stuff up my nor save?

    AKAIO should backup your save in the SRAM at the first initial boot up after playing. So when you switch games using the AKAIO menu all is well.

    However if you flash a game to the NOR, play a different game on the PSRAM then use the DS menu to boot the game in the NOR, the save data will fail to load because its attempting to load the PSRAM save onto the NOR game. That or it will load the NOR game's data but overwrite the PSRAM game's data without backing it up.

    Either way, just boot into the AKAIO menu inbtween games to back up the save.

    I noticed that AKAIO did backup of the GBA save upon boot. But when playing emerald it only does it the first time i save then go into my Acekard. Not sure if it does this for other roms.
