    I really dislike messy stuff, be it a folder with in them music/images/text files and whatnot scrambled across together, or a table with unnecessary crap on it.
    Anyhow, I was just wondering if there is any way to better organize my AceKard 2i's 'Games' folder..

    I mean, look at this image below, its how my folder looks like.

    So I was wondering, would it be possible that the saves would go into another folder or do they have to stay in the same one as the games?

    First step is to delete old SAV files, or store them on your PC or USB.

    The only real option is to give the save files hidden...the only flashcarts that I know of that have saves in a different folder would be the EZFlash, CycloDS (it's available anyways), and iSmart Premium...

    just to let you know...you arent alone in your hatred for cluttery messes...i too saw that and attempted to rectify the issues with a new save folder but sadly it didnt work

    would be nice to see a function to just be able to point to a save folder instead of saving the .sav in the same folder as the games

    I use folders to keep my games in, alphabetically. This helps when I'm looking for a certain save file on the PC, too.

    As for saving in a different folder, make a suggestion for it on the AKAIO forums and it may get added depending on how the developers feel towards it. I think a subfolder in the ROM's folder is too much, perhaps a static folder in the root (or _aio) would be better, but then again I'm not one of the devs.

    i agree with the bolded part...i also think there should be a dedicated save folder on the root as clogging up the any other folders would be unnecessary
