I have an Acekard 2i running AKAIO 1.6rc2. I am playing through Pokemon Platinum on my Acekard in slot 1 with an original Pokemon Emerald cart in slot 2. Pokemon Platinum has a feature that if you have an older GBA Pokemon game connected into slot 2, it adds new pokemon in certain areas of the game. I have not encountered any of these pokemon and am wondering if it's not recognizing my Emerald cart. I assume this would be a feature dependent on the firmware, since the DS rom would need to be given access to the GBA slot. I notice the Wood R4 firmware has an option called "Link with GBA" under the Compatibility setting for an individual rom, which sounds like it provides this option, but needs to enabled. I have been unable to find a similar option in AKAIO menus or the settings ini. So either it's a basic feature that's always on or it is not implemented. I have found similar threads, but they always involve the use of 3in1 type setups and GBA flashkarts, patching roms, etc. But, I am using an original GBA Pokemon Emerald cart in slot 2, and Acekard AKAIO 1.6rc2 with Pokemon Platinum rom in slot 1. So, does the Acekard AKAIO firmware allow DS roms to see if there is a game plugged into the GBA slot?
