    Hello,

    Upon reading many sites about my continuous problem with both NRL Mascot Mania and AFL Mascot Manor, I think I have finally hit the money!

    I read that the M3/R4 does not support Real Time Save function, so I was wondering this is probably why the above 2 titles do not AUTOSAVE on my R4!!

    The first question:
    Is the Real Time Save Function built into the HARDWARE of the R4 card, or into the SOFTWARE?

    The second question:
    If RTS (Real Time Save) is built into the SOFTWARE, does that mean someone like Yasu could incorporate RTS in a newer version of YSMenu?

    The third question:
    Does the Acekard 2 (or 2.1, whichever, they are the same) support RTS? Because on OzModChips, it stated RTS was not supported.

    Thank you, and I hope my dreams of running NRL Mascot Mania and AFL Mascot Manor on my lousy M3/R4 can actually happen [​IMG]

    If not, Acekard 2 here I come!

    Thank you,
    - raiderscrusade !

    1. There isn't a real time save function for r4
    2. YSmenu is using the DSTT's firmware and since the DSTT doesn't have RTS, Yasu can't put it in
    3. AceKard doesn't have RTS

    Hope that clears some things up

    As far as I know YSMenu isn't using the DSTT firmware, it just rips the patching routines out of it.

    Real time save as in saving in game with a save state that allows it to resume from saved point. Not the saving system the game has.
