    Yep another new guy posting asking for help [​IMG]

    Anyway got the Acekard2 on saturday and all seems well until i try some download play.

    My understanding was that the acekard could act as 'host' for local multiplayer games from a single (AK) cart.

    I am using the latest standard firmware version from acekard site (10) and have soft reset+cheats disabled.

    Using euro Mario kart i can only get the white screens with black nintendo symbol on the client and communication error on the host cotaining AK.
    This is with download play patch both on and off.

    I see this got a pass in the review, is this because of the firmware version or am i doing something dumb? (cooking mama worked!)
    (tried with a 2gb sandisk sdsdq-e11mk from games folder and a 1gb jap kingston from root, untrimmed rom.)

    Thanks for any help.

    I tried with Mario Kart and it worked. Are you changing global settings or game-specific settings? I went to START > Patches > DS Download Play Enabled. I didn't set it separately for the game itself.

    for Mario Kart and Download Play you may have to turn off InGame Reset if that's on.

    as i said above i had soft reset and cheats disabled, i think mario kart was one of the games soft reset didn't work in anyway.
    seems to be a few more having problems with mario kart on acekard forums but no progress for us yet.

    Just thinking, i didn't know how to set games up individually so sounds like either custom firmware or my noobiness. If custom firmware thats maybe why works for you?
    Anyways i managed to get it to work with bliss custom firmware on acekard forums for people still stuck
