    So in 1.8.0, a new option called "Bypass Piracy" is now included. I just got one simple question: does this mean that I have to manually enable this option for games previously fixed such as Pokemon Soul Silver? I've set it to Disable by default.

    No, I don't think would Normmatt would go to all the trouble to undo all game fixes and just leave it up to the AAP to do it. All old fixes should be intact. This option is similar to the SCDSTwo's "clean mode" which is applied when a game is problematic and a firmware update isn't available. It was designed to be used on new games so only apply it on a per-ROM basis if the game isn't working; one example is Super Scribblenauts.

    No, this option is like a workaround for new games without internal patch.

    So, how common is the 'read below 0x8000' type of AP? Do a lot of games use that to check for flash cards?
     
  7. I'm pretty sure this is fairly recent because some older games don't work with it enabled.

    It's recent.

    I'm using a Sandisk class-6 card, and while I've read that Animal Crossing doesn't work with it enabled, I tried and found it does work, but it plays in slow-motion (which is no fun of course).
