    You know what'd be nice?
    Telling us what kind of Acekard you have, what software you're running on it (AceKard Team or AKAIO), what version, and what version the loader is.
    Also, the game title and release number would help a bit.

    uh... 423_2010721??? isn't that the tag in the .rar file??? exactly what firmware version is that???

    5076 release of DQ9 works for me on ak2i with AKAIO 1.7.1 firmware/loaders without any hitches.

    unfortunately i dont know anything else other than i tried to get 1.7 in but the program (tinyzip) wont extract anything from it. in fact, it comes up as a file not a folder....


    maybe someone could post the files i need so that i can just drag and drop instead of extracting them-if at all possible.

    again-i really have no idea what im doing with these programs. i thank you all for everything and apologize for the headaches

    here's the link to the guide most Tempers use Guide.
    and here's the link to the AKAIO forum where the 1.7.1 (july 15 update) firmware and loaders are. AKAIO the loader link is at the top of Normatt's post, and an attachment has the rest of the firmware files. Hope this helps

    the 1.7.1 file didnt download into an extractable file. i got the same problem with the 1.7 fille, too. i figure this is the root of the problem i have. if i cant get the update, then nothing new will work, right?

    uggh......nothing extracts properly. i used the extract here option and after it was done nothing showed up...........im sorry to waste everyones time. ive given up

    Can you ask a friend who has a computer that works properly to download it for you?
