    how can I switch this? can acekard run SAV files (instead of sav)

    also, my cheats freeze. I would like to use these instead of the one given to me. how can I make this work?

    hmm... this switch is more then I thought. while the games work amazingly well, I'm having problems converting from one flash cart to another. while R4 is outdated, it and other tools made it so easy to use.

    I have a batch file which will back them up and then rename them in all sub-directories. Download from HERE and Extract to the root directory of your MicroSD card, then goto your MicroSD card double click on renamesav.

    From Where???
    the r4 is not outdated, its 1.18 firmware was. as far as 1st gen slot-1 flash linkers go (and 2nd gen really is stuff like the iplayer and scds2) the r4 has great technology. it does stuff at the hardware level that acekard has to do at the software level. this makes the r4 much faster and capable of greater things. its too bad the team never got a chance to push the technology.

    I guess you are right about the hardware, it has more potential than current software offer.

    how do we know that R4 was so good hardware wise?

    and how can I fix this usrcheat.dat thing?

    I'm rather dumbfounded to hear this; R4 has good hardware? I was supported to sell mine, but honestly I know that I have a orginal ligit card, which is built to last for a long time, I'm not sure if I want to!

    How can I fix and use my own usrcheat file?

    when i changed from r4 to acekard i just changed the firmware. delete the r4 firmware and replace it with the akaio, i didnt even format my card just left everything on except the r4 firmware. and im using the usrcheat.dat file perfectly on my ak2i, just remove the usrcheat.dat file in the cheats folder that came with akaio and replace it with the usrcheat.dat file from ur r4.

    101 on manage your own cheat database for ak

    1st, sort your database on r4cce
    2nd, make sure cheat is enabled on the system options
    3rd, make sure you selected the right database
    4th, remember to rebuild
