    I need help. I figured out the basics of the card, but i need help with other things.
    1. How come R4 save files won't show up on the AceKard? If you have to convert the file, how do i do that?
    2. How come when I have cheats on the AceKard, how come only some show up? Ex: Mario kart has every cheta working, while New Super Mario Bros, there is only one. (The codes are fine and nothing is wrong with the codes)

    Yea, Those are my questions. Hope someone could answer them.

    Middle of the ocean.
    A better firmware for the Acekard in general. Read the stickies in this section.

    the r4 saves are backwards compatible with the official and akaio. is your save type set to .nds.sav? then again now that i think about i recall similar issues with the ak2i. according to shunyweb there is a difference, but i remember speaking to norm about it and he mentioned that there is no difference in the save files.

    sorry norm, if i just misquoted you =P.

    So, after i download the thing and put it on the memory card, what do i do next? Should i just change the files' name from .sav to .nds.sav? Also, the menu thing doesn't work. It said that the system couldn't load. So, i had to replace it with the new one.

    if your using akaio it still defaults to .nds.sav, so either change that in the menu or rename your save file to .nds.sav.

    do what another world says. rename your .nds.sav files to game.sav and in the settings menu, change the save type to .sav.

    .sav files are so good. all kinds of flash carts can use it.

    Thanks, i downloaded the AKAIO, but how come my games won't load? it get stuck on the loading screen (This goes to all my games). I just put the loading file into the folder inside the __AKI or something like that. So, where do i have to put it into?

    UPDATE YOUR LOADERS!!!!

    And if you downloaded the correct file already (not really sure) it goes in the folder called loaders, which is in the folder _aio. Did you even look? It's not rocket science.
