    This update only fixes problems with those games.

    It wont add RTS or the other stuff that was mentioned in the April fools thread.

    Not that I've played these games.

    I had to check the date again, to be sure this is the real 1.18!

    Good to see the R4 is alive and kicking still!

    Im glad a new version is out,but lack of new features(or any features) makes me sad.
    At least it fixes some games i wanted to play.

    I don't understand why so many people want to see new features for the R4 card.

    I'd really like to know, out of interest, which features people want and why.

    Also, what's the point of realtime saving? Why not play the game it was meant to be played?

    Really, please clue me in.

    have a nice day.

    It's for games that are hard as hell. I like a "pure" gaming experience without cheats (I say real time is cheating, even if the saving scheme is broken) and gamefaq.

    Different people, different needs.
    And it is useful for games like New Super Mario Bros, which can take a few good hours to reach a save points. Then there're also games that don't use save system at all, yes, they exist(Command and Destroy).

    nice to see a kernel update, but I'm starting doubt that the R4 Team will be adding any new features at all. although I don't actually care whether or not they do add something new.

    What? A few hours? No. I agree the save system in that game should have been different, but it's not nearly that bad. I never once needed to save in that game and couldn't afford the five coins.
