    so AK guys have released a beta for testing
    its not a final version and a bit unstable apparently (backup saves) but is supposed to improve games like castlevania

    "A brand new engine of saving and reading card for Acekard2. Faster and more stable. Castlevania should be never lag on any TF cards"


    I tried with 1 game - the world ends with you - and it didn't help but thats maybe a different issue as another reports improvements.

    anyway link here for those interested

    http://www.acekard.com/bbs/attachment.php?aid=346 for the firmware - replace akmenu4 file and hold 'a' until loading goes red

    Bliss has updated his AK2 version of his loader with 'official a16-modified'

    Edit.
    Castlevania intro still lags with this release.

    I don't see an official a16 release. I wonder if he meant a15.

    Technically a16 isn't an official release -yet-. From what i read they were still testing it. So you wouldn't be able to find it on their website.

    Yeah if bliss has used a16 its not the official release which is pretty cheeky lol [​IMG]
    but then yesterday normmatt said he didn't have copy of a16 so maybe mistake?

    any ideas why there is no improvement in TWEWY?
    It works on my adata without beta so i assumed it was a card speed thing but still doesn't work on 1gb kingston (still think its a fake) with beta.

    yeah i saw that but i mean if they were only going to send them to him 'soon' would bliss already have it enough in advance of normmatt to modify his loader?
