    I've been playing Pokemon Platinum (U) on my Acekard 2.1 (with AKAIO 1.4.0) with no errors so far. I've been seeing a lot of reports about saves going over the 512kb limit on some cards, such as the R4.

    I was wondering if the Acekard 2.1 or AKAIO 1.4.0 also suffers from this problem. As of right now, I haven't gotten to the first gym, and I've heard most corruptions happen about 1-2 gyms in. I'm trying to avoid corruption/find a fix before this happens, if it will happen.

    Sorry for sounding so noobish, and I hope someone has a correct answer so I can hopefully continue to play Platinum without worries.

    P.S. This is my first post, so hi, I guess.

    I'm 7 gyms in and have had no problems with the saves on my 2.1 with AKAIO. Something like 18 hours of gameplay.

    Though I would like to know how to make a 512KB to be converted to 1MB. I have a Hex editor and was trying to figure it out. Dont know how to add extra ones to make it 1MB.

    In the AKAIO option, there are option for change of file size. There's no 1MB option, only 2MB option. How will it be a 1MB when there's the 2MB option?

    Regards,
    Chris

    Well, when I check the properties of the rom, for save type it says Unknown/Auto. What exactly does that mean?
