    well, after a lot of research on my old r4ultra (i now have a cyclo!) i found out that it is, in fact a clone of the acekard (or was that acekard2?) AND the r4 at the same time, sort of a hybrid. so i decided to try running AKAIO on it, it worked quite eaily! all i had to do was start the "akmenu4.nds" file. i renamed it to _DS_MSHL.NDS so it will start from the multimedia button, but that is still too many steps! is there any way to get an acekard (it's more similar to one of those than an r4) to start a .nds file on boot? like naming it autoboot.nds works in a cyclo?

    r4denc This converts .NDS files into R4 Firmware. Just drag a ROM over r4enc.exe and a .DAT file will appear. Rename it _DS_MENU.DAT and see af that helps.

    nope, didn't work. i suppose this is because the r4ultra's firmware is closer to acekard firmware... is there a program to convert .nds files into ak2 firmware?

    Not so far
    In the AKAIO system options, there's an autoboot setting.
    It will autoboot the last .nds file you used.
