    Hello ive just ordered an acekard dsi today from dealextreme to the uk. When do you think it will arrive. Also are the newer models coming from dealextreme that have less issues.

    When you get it, can you PM me how long it took to get here etc. I'm also from the UK, and will be ordering one for DealExtreme very soon. Thanks!

    Apologies for jumping this thread, but after a recommendation from the GBAtemp cart supplier thread Ive ordered an AK2i from http://www.addictsupplies.com/ this morning, just got an email through saying that it has been dispatched and I even have a tracking number!

    First class is the only postage choice, so hoping it's going to be here tomorrow morning.

    Yeah, best of luck mate, they say if you order before 4pm then it will be posted the same day. Im /hoping/ that it's going to be delivered tomorrow, but they havent said that it would be mind.

    Weekend post it could always be Monday, but Ill be at work so Id have to wait even longer for redelivery >

    Gah, cant double check through tracking number - recorded first class items can only be tracked after delivery, oh well, fingers crossed.

    Do me a favor and post here tomorrow if you get yours [​IMG]

    Hmmm... doesnt say when they expect it to be delivered, but I suppose that depends on your postal service rather than their despatch times.

    Its nice to have a couple of sites now for the UK, as most Ive found were US/JP stores and that would take much longer for postage/import charges etc.

    Yeah true, the reason i think we might get them tomorrow is that they are first class recorded delivery so it has a better chance of arriving.

    Well, Ive briefly played Suikoden, and Platinum and saved at the first point, reloaded the acekard and it's still working.

    Unless it's at a specific point, or if Im using ROMs which arent those exact specific dumps that are mentioned, it all looks fine.

    Playing Layton now and no problem.

    Oh, and using 4.16 official Acekard firmware, no AKIOS as of yet.
