    It wouldn't be a seperate program, it would have to be built in to the rom loader. I don't see any reason that this feature can't be added to any flashcart that can save directly to the microSD card instead of a seperate save chip. The real question is if anyone working on the AK2 has the skill, time, motivation and access to the source code needed to do it.

    Homebrew like that is impossible, because NDS is able to do one think at the time..It would mean that it needs to run that homebrew in behind while running a game, and thats not gonna happen..Adding it to a firmware is something completely different..It can be done, but as Destructobot said, it takes great skills and programing knowledge to do something like that..

    The Ace Kard RPG is open source and from what I heard, if you ask the Ace Kard team nicely, you can get the source for the Ace Kard 2 as well via an email. They just don't want it publicly available.

    Maybe, maybe not. AFAIK it has not been announced as a planned feature, though I may be wrong about that.

    It's not announced for sure!! But there's always a possibility..
    It's really hard to program feature like that, so I don't know if they'll be adding it..
