    I am new to flash kits, and I have just purchased a DSi, waiting for it to be delivered. After reading that the Action Replay DS wont work on the DSi, I began reading on flash cards, that the Acekard 2, and Acekard21 support Action REplay codes. And my question is, do those codes only work for games that are being loaded while the acekard is in, or will it work like an action replay ds does now where I load the codes then I can insert my own DS game and the codes will work for it. For example pokemon games.

    My other question is, can you play romz of games. I hope this is an ok question to ask but I am ordering my Ackard2i with an 8gb MicroSD HD card and was wondering if I would be able to just put all the games I own on that card instead of having to bring each individual cartridge?

    it doesn't play roms. we blocked that.
    it's a homebrew only cart.

    and cheats only work on homebrew.

    I'm not sure about the first, but I'm guessing no.

    The second is yes. It plays ROMs.

    PS: Ignore Smiths. He's drunk.

    From Where???
    there is a homebrew app called nitrohax which allows you to use AR codes on your retail games. i never used it, and i'm actually not sure how it works. but you should be able to find info if you search/google.

    for more info read the akaio wiki (see my sig).

    Caliaztec is clearly asking whether the AK2 can play backups of his commercial cartridges that he bought (in support of the authors) so that he can keep them all on one device for convenience. Certainly he's not suggesting actually downloading the ROM's from some seedy web site without paying for the commercial cartridges -- that would be piracy. We don't condone piracy here, right Smiths?

    Dude we blocked any form of this

    there is no legality in it

    stop lying to him.

    Buy a DSTT; it will do what you want.

    The Acekard won't.

    Just, don't trust anything he says.

    The whole point of a flashkit is to play 'ROMZ' so it would be ridiculous not to.*

    You can use cheats on games you have on the flashcard, and as you can use various tools to rip save files from real cartridges, there isn't that much point in using the originals.

    *Unless you have a DS-XTREEEMEEEEEEEEEEEEEE of course.

    No. seriously.
    the latest builds remove ROM loading.

    Homebrew only.
