    Well i recently got an r4 clone, and although its pretty useful, im getting fed up with all the goddamn errors, piracy checks specially.
    I was told that the acekard is totally better (can someone explain why is it so much better please).
    Ive been looking for a place to buy it online that accepts paypal, but so far no luck, if anyone knows a site that sells original acekards 2i, please let me know.

    Also one last thing, are the r4 game saves (.sav) compatible with the acekard ones?
    Thanks in advance.

    Wow, you really are lazy aren't you? [​IMG]

    Google is your friend.

    R4's are outdated and never updated, Acekards are constantly patched and updated. That is the main reason why they are awesome. Look at the GBAtemp review to see why they are better, you lazy lazy man! (or woman)

    DealExtreme accepts paypal but has slow shipping (if you choose free shipping).

    Yes, saves are compatible (some may require conversion).

    It's better when you use the akaio kernel since it plays anything [​IMG] And if a game doesn't work it just takes a few days before it is fixed. It has a 99.99% compability or something like that. And it is so cheap [​IMG]

    You can buy legit acekard2i from here with paypal (since I did it): http://www.dealextreme.com/

    The saves should work. But if they don't you can just convert them with this: http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php

    Acekard2i works perfect here.

    I also have an m3i zero, and i'm having lots of problems with that card, that is why i bought an acekard via dealextreme.
    Unfortunately it is no longer available on the website @ dealextreme.

    Acekard 2i is the best for today.

    And it's usually lost on shipping. Customer service is also Bad.

    I've ordered from DealExtreme countless times. Nothing was ever lost. They're very slow usually. One time they did surprise me when I got one order within a week. [​IMG]

    I agree. I've ordered from DealExtreme on numerous occasions with no problems at all except the slow delivery times which I expected.

    Pros: Runs everything, automatic compatibility with 3in1, runs R4 saves without conversion.

    Cons: Annoying habit of losing contact mid game sometimes, remember the paper trick!

    Personally, I use GameByGame. They're located in the US, so shipping is fast (and free). I've bought several AceKard 2i's from them and they arrive in 3 days. They also accept Paypal which you requested!

    Be sure to put AKAIO on it and check the Wiki for questions. It helped me get up to speed on the card when I first got it.
