    Alright so after a long 2 days of waiting (lol) I finally got my AK2i in the mail today and so far i've put the newest firmware on it and stared a few NDS games to see if my savs from my M3ds real were compatible with this card which they are so im very happy about that. However the thing is I cant seem to launch any GBA games though in fact in order to see the GBA files I had on the card I had to change the view in the options to view all. so I guess my question is how do I play my GBA game?

    You can't play GBA games without a slot 2 expansion, and if you're using a DSi, you won't be able to input a slot 2 GBA expansion.

    You cant play any gba game on the acekard 2i without a slot-2 expansinon slot. You can only play gba files on the iplayer without a slot-2.

    that place
    ...Ignore him (Ireland 1), he's not reading your posts.
    @dahem_kh_ff: Lameboy is a GB/GBC emulator. It won't work with GBA games.

    Try using GBA Exploader to run your GBA games.

    Yeah I got mine here
    http://www.wiiloveds.com/

    They are based in the USA (New York) and since I live in Connecticut (a few hour drive away) the shipping is insanely fast. I've also ordered 3 total flash cards from there all were legit and not fakes so I can confirm that the company is legit.

    I too went from an M3 Real to an Acekard 2.1 and tried using the M3's RAM pack. It seems the M3 pack is only supported by the M3 just to be awkward.
    Grab yourself an ezflash 3in1. They're fairly cheap from the right places and provide support for GBA games using AKAIO, additional RAM for the DS Browser (not really worth it but it's there [​IMG] ) and rumble (can be turned off if not wanted in the games that support it.

    This is what I use on my DS Lite and seems to work flawlessly. I would recommend focalprice.com (Hong Kong based) but they don't seem to stock any flash carts anymore :-(

    So i just ordered and Acekard 2i and i want to use my ex-flash 3in1 with it, however i could never get it to work right with my r4... poor battery or something. It does load the game, however it just doesn't save it. My question is can i just load it off the ak2i and it should save to the ak2i rather than the slot2?

    fustrated!!!!

    supercard dsonei running evo and dstt does not seem to have native support for 3in1 as browser ram!
    no matter what i try ds browser seems to just be doomed with this setup

    does anyone use 3in1 as browser ram with acecard 2?

    PLEASE TELL ME WHAT CARDS SUPPORT 3IN1 WITH DS OPERA BROWSER WITHOUT ANY COMPLICATED MODDING OR PATCHING

    Ok, two things:
    First off, AKAIO (for the AceKard) has built-in support for the 3-in-1.
    Secondly, don't bother using the DS Opera browser. It's pretty terrible. Instead, use Bunjalloo. It works on more websites, is faster and is updated regularly (which the offic. browser obviously isn't).
