    The #acekard channel topic on irc.gbatemp.net:5190 has been updated to show the build of beta 1.8.9. I have no idea what the changes are and I'm sure they would be mostly private anyway. I'm posting this as a status update to help show that development is still active since the release cycle can be quite long.

    Help make future versions even better, if you notice a bug in the current version test it out according to this procedure and post a report.

    On a side note if your unable/unwilling to use wifi update you can get a later version of the CMP_USRcheat cheat database it was last updated in that forum on 10/17 at the time of this post.


    Lastly some loader updates have been released since 1.8.8 @ http://akaio.net/loaders/ , for those who missed normatt's post on the fix, or didn't know he released a refix.


    Dated 09/29/11 Notes: "Refixed Kirby Mass Attack (#5833)
    Dated 09/27/11 Notes: "Fixed Kirby Mass Attack (#5833)

    Update:

    According to smiths in a post right below the 1.8.9 beta implemented the following:
    If I see anything else posted I'll add it, though I'm out of town so I won't be updating for next couple weeks.

    I'm sure it is just a private/developer beta, I only know because I check the channel topic several times a day. Even if I had access I wouldn't release it.

    Right now besides loader fixes and alterations and the Arm7 cheat window speed fix, the only thing that made me change the version was... well.... I drank.

    I got tired of internal names for DS Homebrew that doesn't have a good header just saying "DS Program File"... so it will say the file name now.

    HELL YEAH IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good to see that they're still developing, I'm still on version 1.8.7 because of the slow scrolling ...

    Keep us updated when > 1.8.8 is available!

    Your "drunkeness" seems to be the most consistant indicator if there is progress.

    That is a bit handy for us who use a lot of homebrew and have to switch to filename mode to distinguish some of the them.

    One thing I wonder about is the future of Akaio as the Nintendo DS line winds down, I would suppose DS support will be frozen soon after the last few games come out and then its either retirement or off to Akaio3DS.

    Isn't all Homebrew/card software actually a beta?

    Would be really good to see a new version released or at least a loader to play the clean ROM of Professor Layton...

    I Hope that Akaio 1.8.9 comes with a Fix to play Fossil Fighters Champions and Beyblade Metal Masters

    Actually that is a nice feature.

    Program completion status isn't linked to retail status. Minecraft was sold in Alpha and Beta for a long time, as an example.

    I'd really like to see support for storing some 'proper' names for GBA roms, matched based on the gba headers internal ID

    We'd need a database on the cartridge (containing every GBA ROM/CRC/Title) that would need to be scanned every time a directory was entered. That don't really seem so feasible.

    Man. I don't know about ya'll but kinetic scrolling on Wood 1.40 would be a great addition to AKAIO. Could we please have this new feature Smiths? Normatt?? :unsure: Oh and the ability to use custom icons again too, please.

    Do you think it's worth it coolness? I asked for a start up sounds (like an .mp3 clip) on akaio.net and no one from the AKAIO team ever answered.
