    I guess mirror can be posted here or something but I'm drinking and watching hockey, so someone else do it. [​IMG]

    For the most part, it looks the same as the original AKRPG loader.

    This firmware only works on the RPG.

    it's a hybrid of all the custom firmwares, including bliss'.

    I'm strongly considering getting one, but finding it hard to justify dropping 80USD on another flashcart..

    i'm new to this AKBBS thing. currently i'm using bliss custom.
    i visited the website's SVN (http://devel.acekard.com/svn/trunk/AceKard-BBS/), but there are LOTS of files over there >,<
    could anybody tell me which files i should download to get this AKBBS 1.99 for my AK2?

    thanks alot =]

    I don't believe the merged firmware works for the AK2. The Bliss firmware (Custom OSMenu for Acekard2 : v407.bliss.k08) is the one you want for the AK2: http://bliss.hanirc.org/blog/

    It'll work, just get the akmenu4.nds from bliss' AK2 custom. Then rename __rpg folder from AKBBS to __ak2. And place the dldi file for the ak2 from bliss' __ak2 folder inside the renamed __rpg folder.

    That won't give you anything from AKBBS. the Akmenu4.nds contains all the code and such.
    I'm contacting the AK team about potentially getting a AKBBS for AK2... but no promises.

    wow, if they really are going to accommodate AKBBS for AK2, that'd be awesome! i'll keep waiting! it seems to be able to do more than bliss' custom (although i like bliss' one), but i'd like to see which one is the best for me.

    thanks smiths! and all of the AKBBS team and bliss~~ =]
    (i'm quite sure smiths and bliss ARE part of AKBBS team. no?)

    What might AKBBS do on the AK2 that Bliss' menu doesn't do?

    one major feature which i've added in my private build and a public beta for the rpg (http://devel.acekard.com/wiki/wiki/AceKard-snapshots) is Slow Motion.
